Eyebrows are tricky creatures. You know how they are supposed to look, but sometimes they don't cooperate.
However, nice arched eyebrows are a very defining part of your face.
 
When done well, eyebrow shaping calls attention to your eyes, frames them, and makes them appear more open.
 
But it's easy to make mistakes and become "tweezer happy" when you doing it yourself.
 
 
 

Step-by-Step Guide to Perfect Eyebrows

Here are a few little tricks to get the perfect shape suited to your face:
  1. Take an eyeliner pencil and place it vertically against the side of your nose (repeat for each side). The pencil should run about mid-mouth to the tear duct of the eye. This is where your eyebrow should start. Any hair that is visible beyond the pencil should be tweezed.
     
  2. Next, take the pencil and diagonally place where it hits the middle of the mouth, nostril and outside the iris of the eye. This is where your arch is. Tweeze a gradual line from the arch to the start of the inner brow.
     
  3. To determine the end of the eyebrow, place the pencil diagonally across to the opposite corners of the mouth, nostril and outside corner of the eye. Anything that remains beyond that point should be tweezed.
     
  4. Trim those longer hairs. This will make a big difference! You will need a small eyebrow comb and a small pair of scissors. Using the comb, gently brush the brows up and trim anything that goes beyond the natural hairline. Then brush the hairs down and do the same.
     
  5. Don't be afraid of filling in the sparse hairs with a soft sweep of an eyebrow pencil. Your brows will look fuller and richer in color. Jeune Skin Care offers brow tinting as a quick solution to blonde or lighter hairs.

It can be a bit difficult to tweeze eyebrows on your own. Trying to pluck with only one eye open, let alone trying to make them match, is tough! Just remember to start very gradually. It is much easier to go back and remove a stranded hair than to wait for an over-tweezed brow to grow in.
