The Perfect Eyebrow Shape

Eyebrows grow in all shapes and thicknesses and the perfect eyebrow can usually only be created with the proper knowledge and tools.

If your eyebrows are already over-plucked or shaped incorrectly, please take the time to let it grow out before attempting to re-shape it. If you try to re-shape eyebrows that have not enough hair growth to work with, you will end up with very strange or possible no eyebrows at all!

Get a friend to help you if you are worried about not being able to see clearly or if you are prone to tweeze too much.

Tools you would need to shape and maintain the perfect eyebrow:

 Tweezer

 Eyebrow comb

 Eyeliner pencil

 Huge mirror

 Eye shadow powder make-up, as near to your natural eyebrow colour as possible

 Slanted eyebrow make-up brush

 Eyebrow fixing gel

 Pair of very sharp, small scissors.

Measuring the eyebrow correctly as follows:

Brush the eyebrows with your eyebrow comb along their natural shape.

1. Hold a pencil or your make-up brush vertically along your nostril to touch or meet your eyebrow. Mark this point with the eye liner pencil. This is where the eyebrow should start.(Point number 1)

2. Hold the pencil at a slanted angle, from your nostril to the outer edge of your eye and mark this point where the eyebrow and the pencil meet. This is where the eyebrow should ends. (Point number 2)

3. Look straight in the mirror and hold the pencil vertically behind the iris and mark the point that meets the eyebrow at the top. This is where the top of the eyebrow arch should be. (Point number 3)

Shape the eyebrow:

Please remember not to make the brows too thin or too arched. It looks unnatural and sometimes very strange….

 Tweeze the hair that grows between the brows to point number 1.

 Tweeze the sparse hair from under the eyebrows- do not thin it out too much.

 Tweeze any hair that grows beyond point number 2.

 Take care to keep as much of the natural arch of your brows, slowly arch the eyebrow at point number 3.

 If there is very long hair that is out of place, trim it at an angled slant with the pair of scissors.

If you are having difficulty doing it like this, first draw in your eyebrows with an eyeliner pencil according to the 3 points. Start tweezing the hair until the required shape is achieved. Or else, you can always have it done professionally!

Further tricks to maintain that perfect shape, or create it if you have sparse, uneven growing eyebrows:

 Use your slanted make-up brush and eye shadow powder, brush on a small amount of powder and fill sparse areas in, or use it to shape the brow where necessary. I find that powders work the best, as you can lighten the effect by brushing it out with your eyebrow brush.

 Use the Eyebrow Fixing Gel to hold the hair in shape.
