10. Wash Your Face
The first step should always be to wash and dry your face. You don’t need to worry so much about cleansing and exfoliation, but you do want to remove any dirt or oil. Anything left on your skin could get into hair follicles and lead to an ingrown hair or blemish that negates all your hard work.
9. Decide On A Method
You can pluck, wax, or tweeze to get your perfect shape. Each method has its pros and cons, so find what works best for you. Most women prefer waxing for the speed, but threading can go fast once you know what you are doing.
8. Find Your First Line
Measure from your nose to the outer corner of your eye, continuing with that line, you will find where your eyebrow should terminate. Using a pencil or brush is a good way to get a visual representation of this line. Get rid of all hair that goes beyond this line and repeat on the other side.
7. Find The Second Line
Straight up from the inner corner of your eye, the second line determines how low you want the thickest part of your brow to be. Get rid of any hair that goes between these lines on both sides, leaving you with two defined brows. Do not start shaping yet.
6. Find Your Arch
Angling the brush so that it goes from your nose, past your pupil, and then to your brow, you have found the tip of your arch. This is where you can start working with your shaping, and where you will determine the curve of your entire eyebrow.
5. Shape Your Brow
Decide how much of a curve you want, and start removing hair from the top to generate the shape you want. Go slowly, adjusting as you look in the mirror. Remember, it is always better to take too little than too much.
4. Thin Out Your Brow
Thin out your brows from the bottom, keeping the arch on the top in tact. Most people want their brows to be around the thickness of a pencil, but small brush handles can also be used for reference for much smaller brows as well. Be careful with your lines and take your time.
3. Trim Up Excess
Take the time to trim off any hairs that are longer than the others. This allows you to really see how your brows look and keeps them in a well groomed state. This will also show if you have any parts in your brow that need to be touched up.
2. Do Any Touch Ups
Brush out your brows and see if you need to pluck any stray hairs to make everything lay correctly. Even one stray hair can ruin the way that perfect brows look, so pay attention. Make sure that both sides match.
1. Fill In Your Brows During Makeup Application
Make sure to fill in your brows when you are doing your makeup. Most of the time you need to take this step to make sure they stand out. For a natural look, you can just leave them alone.
