Shaping the Eyebrows


Eyebrows can make or break your look. A simple online search for “bad eyebrows” reveals the many mistakes people make when shaping or applying makeup to their eyebrows. Some of them are pretty drastic, but many women simply don’t know how to shape their brows properly. But a few simple guidelines can keep brows looking great.

Trimming the Brows
Brush the brows up with an eyebrow brush. Gently trim away any long, stray hairs protruding above the top of the brow. Be careful not to cut below the top of the brow. You could create gaps in the brow by doing so.

Shaping the Inner Edge of Brows
Hold a pencil vertically against the outer edge of the nose aligning it with the inner corner of the eye all the way through to the inner brow. The inner edge of the eyebrow should line up with this vertical line. Therefore any hairs that fall outside of this area should be removed.

Shaping the Outer Edge of Brows
Keeping the pencil lined up against the outer edge of the nose, move the top part of the pencil until it aligns with the outer corner of the eye so that it forms a line that runs from the edge of the nose to the outer corner of the eye and up through the outer brow bone. This line represents where the outer edge of the brow should end. Any stray hairs falling outside of this area should be removed.

Placing the Arch
To determine where the arch should be located, hold the pencil against the outer edge of the nose and align the top part of the pencil with the pupil of the eye, holding it so that it runs through the brow. The arch should be placed where the pencil intersects with the brow. Remove any stray hairs under the arch. Avoid over-tweezing.

Filling in Any Gaps or Missing Hair
Fill in any gaps with brow makeup. While many women use brow pencils, they may not provide the most natural look. Try using a powder brow makeup or even an eyeshadow. Avoid using black, which may age your appearance.

Shaping eyebrows can be tricky. But no matter whether thin brows or thicker brows are trending, these simple tips can keep your eyebrows looking good.
