It doesn’t matter if yours are naturally wild or have been victims of over-plucking, perfectly shaped and groomed eyebrows are possible to achieve, for those who are into that sort of thing.

If you’re struggling to keep your brows neat or can’t quite nail that perfect arch, there are ways to go about this.

By learning the correct methods and techniques for shaping your eyebrows, you’ll be able to create the most flattering appearance for your face. So, before you go pulling out the tweezers and attacking every little hair, take the time to brush up your skills and perfect your technique.

This is how;

First and foremost, it is important to find out if your brows are thick enough. You can always try to grow thicker brows. Let’s get started. Make sure you are relaxed and have good lighting. Use a special brush to comb your eyebrows, and trim any hair that is attached up above the brow line using a small pair of nail scissors, eyebrow scissors or razorblade.

Now get an eye pencil. Lay a pencil in a straight line along the side of your nose; place the pencil along your nose and across your pupil. This will be the curve and the highest part of your brow. Afterwards, move the pencil so that the end of your nostril and the outer edge of your eye are in line. That’s it. It is so easy; you can do it in the shortest time.

If you want the brow shape to look better and neat, try underlining the skin between the eyebrow and the eyelid. If your brows are lighter than your hair colour, you can try colouring them using a special eyebrow dye. The colour of your eyebrows should be very close to the tone of your hair in order to give you a natural look.

You can fill in your eyebrows using a pencil, eyebrow powder or shadow, and brow mascara. A pencil assists you in forming a more natural look and conceals sparseness. You can use brow powder to get thicker eyebrows.

Apply a little bit of concealer and blend carefully. Afterwards, apply some highlighter under the eyebrow; you will be amazed by the outcome.

However, you should take note of these details. The shape of your eyebrows determines the shape of your face. If your face is round, generate a high curve. Follow a straight line to the peak of the brow, don’t do rounded brow shapes, they don’t bring out the perfect look. If they are round, your face will look round.

Ladies with an oval face, choose a flat and soft-angled eyebrow shape. Those should go straight up, and then lightly curl around at the top.

If you have a square-shaped face, try having a curved brow shape, soft, or hard-angled shape. For those with a heart-shaped face, just do a low bow and rounded brow shape, this somehow keeps your face calm but not exaggerated. Do away with extremely bended eyebrows as it can append length to a shorter face.
