Perfect Eyebrows Are Possible!

Having correctly shaped eyebrows can make a world of difference for your appearance. Your eyebrows are one of the most important features on your face. The good news is – you can almost always “fix” them or enhance them for little or no cost. Your eyebrows are not permanent and you can always fix them and shape them as you desire to help improve your facial features.

Your eyebrows help accentuate your eyes (most women’s best feature) and depending on your eyebrow shape, can help you look more awake and even a little bit younger, too. Perfect eyebrows are easy to achieve with the right tools and methods.

Eyebrow Shaping Tips

  • Eyebrows can and will define the look on your face. If you over shape them or arch them too much, you risk looking surprised or even angry (probably not your desired look!)
  • A good eyebrow shape will create a neutral look that will do wonders for your eyes, drawing attention to the ‘windows of your soul’.
  • If you are going to start shaping your own eyebrows, it is recommended to go to a salon first for a wax or tweeze and consultation. The stylist will provide you with a professionally designed shape which you can then learn to easily maintain at home, by yourself.
  • Consult pictures (below) to find an eyebrow shapes that suit your face, or consult a stylish (recommended).
  • For fuller faces, your eyebrow should be a bit thicker. For thinner faces, a thinner eyebrow is recommended.
  • Be very careful to not over shape them and over pluck. Pencil thin eyebrows take a while to grow back and are not considered very attractive.
  • Your eyebrow should start exactly above your inner eye.
  • The (slight) arch should start exactly above your iris. Having a large arch can make you appear startled or angry.
  • The end of the eyebrow should not go lower then the inner part. This will make your eyes appear droopy and sad.

      Electrolosis was the best thing I've ever done for my eyebrows.

      I know that happened to my mom, too. It can work for some people, but I'd imagine you'd have to do TONS of plucking! :)

      You know, I used to pluck them all the time to save myself from the unibrow I used to have, and now they just stopped growing.
