Brows That Wow (How to: Shape your Eyebrows)

I use the process below for shaping up my eyebrows for (and in between) waxes.  It’s helped me to define my natural eyebrow pattern and avoid artificial/over-plucked eyebrows.  Finding the perfect brow shape for your face can be broken into these four easy steps:

1. Make a line with a straight line from the corner of your nose to the inner corner of your eyes.  Where that line hits your eyebrow, that’s where your eyebrow should start. (Point A)
2. Looking straight ahead, make a straight line from the corner of your nose to the pupil of your eyes.  Where that line hits the eyebrow, that’s where the highest point of your arch should be. (Point B)
3. Make a line with a straight line from the corner of your nose to the outer corner of your eyes. Where that line hits your eyebrow, that’s where the tail of your eyebrow ends.   (Point C)
4. Trace an arch using those points as a guide with a pencil and remove the hairs that stray from that path.  You can use which ever hair removal process you prefer (I wax, then tweeze).

The result: beautifully arched brows that frame your face perfectly.
