Eyebrow Shaping Basics

by aevans
To create the perfect eye brow shape, follow these simple steps.

1. Look straight into a mirror. Hold a pencil vertically against one nostril. Your eyebrow should start where the pencil meets your brow. Tweeze in the middle between there and the other eyebrow.

2. Next, pluck only from beneath the eyebrow and remove any obvious stray hairs.

3. To get the right arch, angle the pencil to the outer side of your pupil, with the eraser end at the side of your nostril, and the top just past the middle of your eye. The spot where the pencil hits the eyebrow is where the top of the arch should be, about three-quarters of the way out. Create a line that tapers upwards to this point. Repeat on the other side.

4. Next, angle the pencil so it aligns with the outer corner of the eye. Where it hits the eyebrow is where the eyebrow should end. At this point, it should taper slightly down.
