Beautiful Brows

When it comes to your eye brows, do not over-pluck and use a shaver or razor. Learn how to shape them, fill them in, and elongate them. Because your eye brows frame your eyes.
  • Spooly brush or disposable mascara wand
  • Cuticle scissors
  • Angled/slant tweezers
  • Pointed tweezers
  • Brow shadow (taupe for blondes and brown range for everyone else)
  • Brow shadow brush
  • Pencil (to line up the angles)

Here's how to get a beautiful shaped brows: 

1. With a disposable mascara wand or spooly brush, brush the hairs upward to prepare for Step 2
2. With a pair of scissors, trim any hairs that are longer than your brow shape
3. With angled tweezers, pluck areas above and below the brows, grabbing a couple at a time
4. With pointed tweezers, grab stubborn single hairs and shorter ones
5. To determine where your brow should start, hold a pencil or make-up brush along one side of your nose. Where it crosses the inner corner of your brow, that’s where it should begin
6. Now angle the pencil across the iris; that’s where the arch should begin
7. Angle it to the end of the outer corner of the eye; that’s where the brow should end
8. With those angles and lengths in mind, fill in the brows using light, feathery strokes as if you were drawing individual hairs
