How to Shape Eyebrows Like a Pro

Eyebrows have become one of the latest women craze all over the world. Every woman wants to know how to get perfect shapes of eyebrows for a beautiful look. But in the midst of all this, there is a lot that’s being done wrong. Like plucking all the eyebrows out and having to draw them all over again with an eye pencil or getting the arch shape completely wrong. Sometimes, even using the right eye pencil to fill in is a problem. To solve this, you could either visit a brow guru or do it yourself; we’ll guide you on how to shape eyebrows like a pro.

There is one important point to note; full eyebrows look exotic and beautiful. However, for those who do not have the thickness, getting the right shape is the most important as you can use makeup to fill in the gaps and add depth. Check our guideline on how to shape eyebrows with tweezers and eye pencil.

Steps on How to Shape Eyebrows

1). Have a great start

To start off, you need to visualize the brow shape that you want to achieve. However, the arch shape is the best brow shape as it is the most natural looking shape. Once you have visualized your brow shape, understand that the front part of the eyebrow should align perfectly with the upper bridge of your nose.

2). Get the guidelines

To know how to shape eyebrows with pencil, it is vital to fill in your eyebrows before you pluck them out as this will help you not to overdo it. Starting with the bottom part of the brow, get a slanted pencil at a perpendicular angle. This is for the front of the brow, which is the widest part then turn it sideways at the arch for a much thinner line towards the end. Then draw in the upper part of the eyebrow with the lower part acting as your guideline. Ensure that the arch is three-quarters of the way back from the front, which is at the nose bridge. Then from there the tail should follow the angle of the eye.

3). Brush upwards

After drawing in your desired brow shape, get a spoolie brush and use it gently to coax the eyebrow hairs upwards for lift and volume.

4). Tweeze the stray hairs

Once you are done with the brushing and filling in, pluck out the unwanted/ stray follicles by using the slant-tipped tweezers. Since you are not a professional at this, you need to keep in mind all the necessary steps on how to shape eyebrows with tweezers. Just tweeze the lower part of the eyebrows and not above the eyebrow because if you accidentally tweeze into the brow arch, instead of lifting it up, it will bring the brow down. While you are at it, keep stepping backward from the mirror from time to time to check on your work. When you zero in too much on the mirror, you might end up losing the perspective of what shape the brow should actually be.

5). Close the gap

Using your pencil, lightly add a pigment in the area between the front and the end of the inner arch. Fill in lightly because if you are not careful the eye pencil can go dark and heavy, which might end up causing it to stick and clump.

6). Trim the excess hairs

One of best tips on how to shape eyebrows with tweezers is to avoid trimming your brows unless you really have to. Feathery brows are full and beautiful and the more you trim they tend to grow in more harshly. For you to know whether you need some trimming or not, use a spoolie brush to comb your hairs gently upwards at an angle in the direction of the brow. If some hairs are noticeably longer than the rest or are hanging over at the edge, snip slowly and sparingly.

7). Retrace your steps

After the plucking and trimming, the penciled-in makeup is likely to have faded, it is, therefore, important to go back and fill in where necessary and then start working on the other brow. Follow all the necessary steps to get the right shape for eyebrows.

With these tips, you can easily learn how to shape eyebrows with tweezers at home and look beautiful all day.
