Eyebrows – if groomed and shaped properly – can beautifully highlight eyes, the most dramatic and expressive facial feature.
Before you start plucking or waxing your eyebrows, it is vital to choose the right shape for your features as the wrong choice can have disastrous results as far as your beauty goes.
Usually, the best eyebrow shape is your natural shape, so don’t try to change them completely or you’ll end-up with an unnatural look which is something you should try to avoid hence naturalness has been highly promoted these past few years . You are born with the correct eyebrow shape for your face, so let it guide you.
It is highly recommended to go to a cosmetician – at least for the first time – to get them done professionally and properly and ask for advice on how to how maintain them at home. After that, all you have to do is pluck the hair that grows.
Eyebrows should be as long as the eyes or just a little bit longer – to get the proper length you should take a pencil and hold it parallel to the side of your nose. Where the pencil meets the brow make a mark with white pencil and pluck hair from outside the mark.
To find where eyebrows should end, take the pencil an hold it diagonally from the nostril following the outer corner of your eye, and mark the inside of the pencil. That is where the eyebrow should end.
To make the brow slightly arched take the pencil and hold it parallel to the outside part of the iris. The part where the pencil meets the brow is where the highest point of your eyebrow should be.
Using these marks on both eyes will provide you a general guideline on how the shape of your eyebrow should be based on the shape of your face.
Start tweezing the hair that are not inside your drawing, plucking them in the direction of growth.
Once you finish plucking, cleanse the area with a toner, which will lessen the chance of a follicle becoming infected and leading to a pimple.
