The natural shape of your eyebrows and face should create the basis for how you manipulate your brows and apply product to them. If you’re not sure how to create the perfect shape for your brows, keep reading to learn how to shape your eyebrows correctly every time.
1.) Visualize Your Brow Shape
The overall appearance of the eye area is defined by the length, arch and thickness of the eyebrow. So you need to first analyze your eyebrow shape. The front of the eyebrow should align with the upper bridge of the nose.
Hold an eyebrow pencil or a ruler vertically in front of your face.
If you want your brows farther apart, then line it up so that it touches the outermost edge of your nose and the inside of your eyes.
If you want your brows closer than line up the straight edge on one side of the septum. These lines will help to determine where your brows should start.
Mark that area with the help of an eyebrow pencil.
2.) Determine Arch to Do Eyebrows
By determining the arch you can give perfect shape to your eyebrows. Angle the straight edge so that it lines up with the outermost layer of your pupil and the outermost edge of your nose.
Look straight ahead both your eyes and face should be looking directly forward at the mirror.
Your arch should begin at the top of the brows.
Mark that area with your eyebrow pencil.
3.) Determine the Outer Brow to Shape Your Eyebrows
Angle the straight edge so that it touches the outermost layer of your nose and the outermost edge of your eye.
This will tell you where your eyebrow should end. Mark this point with the help of eyebrow pencil.
Repeat the process with the other eye.
4.) Draw a Line to Do Your Eyebrows
Drawing a line along the bottom edge of your eyebrow will determine the thickness of the brow. Follow the natural arch of your eyebrow.
5.) Pluck the Stray Hair to Do Your Eyebrows
Plucking the stray hair will help to give shape to your hair. Your eyebrows should be 0.5 to 1 cm at their thickest.
Pluck minimum hair above the brow if you want to maintain the natural arch of your brow.
Tweeze only stray hair.
You can also give shape without plucking.
If your eyebrows are sensitive then you can use ice to numb the area before tweezing.
