Everybody desires perfectly shaped eyebrows.  No matter what you use to do your eyebrows it can be somewhat difficult at times. You will notice that the shape of your eyebrows is already set. Eyebrows are the most important feature of your face that determines all the angles of your face. For example, they can narrow or widen your face or they can lift your eyes. Here are some tips on how to start.

Shaping your eyebrows takes time. The tools you will need are a spooly brush or disposable mascara wand, cuticle scissors, angled/slant tweezers, pointed tweezers, brow shadow, stiff brow shadow brush, pencil. These tools can be bought at any drug store or online if you are not in a hurry.  If you get nervous of doing your eyebrows by yourself, ask someone close to you and see if they can help.  Let’s get started.

To get started with your spooly brush, brush the hairs upward thru out your whole eyebrow. This will help you see the long hairs that you will need to trim in order to follow the shape that you want. With your cuticle scissors trim any hairs that are longer than your brow shape. This scissors are amazing since they allow you to get really close and tip of the edges without messing up. Now with your angled tweezers, pluck areas above and below the brow. This will allow you to define your shape more. With the pointed tweezers grab any single hairs and shorter ones that are stubborn.  When you do this you will see that the area around it looks much cleaner and nicer. If you are fine with the way they look that is great if not here is how to define them.

Defining your eyebrows is not as hard as shaping them. Grab your brow pencil and hold it along the side of your nose. Where the pencil crosses the inner corner of your brow, that’s where you should begin defining. Now angle the pencil across the iris of your eye and that’s where your arch should begin. Angle the pencil to the outer corner of your eye and that’s where the brow should end. Using your pencil lightly start filling in your brows. It works best if you use feathered strokes. The finishing touch will be with your stiff brow shadow brush just brush your eyebrows starting from the inner part to the outer part.

Now your brows will look great. Shaping your eyebrows is good to do every two weeks since you want to keep the shape noticeable. Defining your eyebrows is the best way to make them look clean. You will see that your eyes stand out now and look much better. Feel free to post your finishing look.
