Eyebrow Shaping
Bookmark and Share

Eyebrow shaping involves removing extra hair from underneath and above the eyebrow as needed, to give definition and provide an attractive "frame" for the eyes.

Eyebrow shaping is technical and not a lot of fun, but it can drastically affect your appearance. The ideal brow is one that is nicely groomed and not over-plucked. Beware of an eyebrow arch that is too high or skinny. To judge the appropriate shape for your brow, follow these steps

Starting point of Shaping Eyebrows

Look straight in the mirror. To see where bs should start, hold a pencil vertically against one nostril. Where the pencil meets your brow is a good starting point. Repeat on the other side

Right endings

Hold a pencil vertically against one nostril. Angle it so that it aligns corner of the eye. Where the pencil hits the brow is where it should end.

Perfectly shaped eyebrows

The shape of the eyebrow is correct when the beginning of the brow is aligned with the center of the nostril and the arch falls over the back third of the eye.

Right lenght of the eyebrow

Hold a ruler parallel to your nose, and level with the inner corner of the eye, to work out where the brow should begin. If your eyes are close together, make the gap between the brows wider.

Shaping eyebrows
1) Plucking eyebrows
2) Waxing eyebrows
3) Threading eyebrows
4) Filling eyebrows

Try using an eyebrow pencil to draw on different shapes over your brow area to see which shape looks the best. If your eyes are far apart, don’t wax the start line of the brow too much so that they are closer together. Mark the correct point with a dot.

Right curve of the eyebrow

You can work out where the highest point of the curve/ arch should be by holding a ruler from the edge of the nostril past the outer edge of the iris (the colored part of the eye) and up to the eyebrow.

Mark the spot with a dot .Now link up the dots in a gentle arch to draw on the ideal shape of the eyebrow that you want to achieve. This will give you a guideline to go by when applying the wax. You should aim for a smooth arched brow that tapers slightly at the outer ends.
