- How To Determine Your Eyebrow Shape:

Determine where your inner brow should end. Hold a straight edge, such as an eyebrow pencil or a ruler, vertically in front of your face.
  • Line it up so that it touches the outermost of edge your nose and the inside of your eye. This line will determine where your eyebrow should start.
  • Mark that spot with an eyebrow pencil. Repeat for the other eye.
Determine where your arch should peak. Angle the straight edge so that it lines up with the outermost edge of your nose and the outermost edge of your iris.
  • It's very important that you look straight ahead — both your face and your eyes should be looking directly forward at the mirror.
  • Wherever the line intersects your eyebrow is where the peak of your arch should begin at the top border of the eyebrow.
  • Mark that spot with your eyebrow pencil.
  • Repeat for the other eye.
Determine where your outer brow should end. Angle the straight edge further so that it touches the outermost edge of your nose and also passes along the outermost edge of your eye.
  • This tells you where the eyebrow should end. Mark this point with your eyebrow pencil.
  • Repeat with the other eye.
Draw a line along the bottom edge of your brow. This will determine the brow thickness.
  • Follow the natural curvature of your eyebrow.
Pluck the strays that fall below the line and outside the marks you've made.
  • Your eyebrows should be 1/4 - /1/2 inch (0.5 - 1 cm) at their thickest.[1]
  • Pluck minimally above the brow — you want to retain your brow's natural arch. Only tweeze stray hairs.
  • If plucking isn't your thing, try shaping without it.
  • If your brows are sensitive, use ice to numb the areas before you tweeze.
Consider your face shape. Certain brows better compliment specific face shapes.
  • To minimize the curve of a round face, direct the outer third of the brow towards the top of the ear.
  • If the face is square, direct it toward the middle of the ear. This helps balance the face.
  • If the face is long, keep the brow more straight across, directing it above the ear.
  • An oval face already looks balanced, but to enhance this harmony, you can direct the outer third towards the ear lobe.[2

How To:  Eyebrows For Different Face Shapes

What Type of eyebrow product you should use?

1/ Pencil: A pencil is probably the most used tool to fill in eyebrows, but it is also one of the trickiest. Pencils tend to glide on smoothly without tugging and provide a more precise application, but can also often look too harsh and give you that ugly “drawn-on” appearance. To avoid that and make your eyebrows look natural, you have to use light, feathery and quick strokes. This requires both a steady hand and lots of practice.

2/ Eyebrow Powder: I prefer to use powders to fill in my brows because they tend to look more natural (unless you overdo it, in which cause they’ll look heavy). They have a natural, matte finish, are great for filling in patches and last long. Make sure you opt for one with buildable colour payoff as that gives you better control over application and will prevent you from using too much product. If you don’t want to invest in an eyebrow powder, then opt for a matte eyeshadow that matches your brow colour exactly. Whatever you use, apply it with an angled brush for a more precise application.

3/ Brow Kits With Stencils: To me, brow kits with stencils are the best option for newbies. Stencils make it easy to create a nice, arched shape. You don’t have to worry about where to start plucking from; just place the stencil over your brow, fill it in with powder and, once you’ve got a good shape, you can start cleaning it up and removing stray hairs. It’s true that it’s difficult to find a stencil that fits your brow shape perfectly, so you may have to move it around a little, but still, they are a pretty good guide for colour placement

Always choose a powder or pencil with a matte finish. Shimmering brows aren’t attractive!
– Always choose a shade that matches that of your brows exactly, otherwise your brows will look fake and unnatural. And avoid black shades, even if you have black hair. Black is way too harsh. Instead, opt for a dark-brown hue.
– For a more defined look, tidy up the edges of the brows with a creamy concealer.
– If simply combing isn’t enough to tame unruly hair, consider purchasing a brow gel. They are mascara-like products that are available either clear or slightly tinted.
