Get Perfectly Shaped Eyebrows, NOW!

So you missed your last brow appointment. Don’t fret; neglecting your aesthetician doesn't have to mean abandoning your brows. Properly shaped eyebrows can make you look younger and more awake, so there’s no excuse not to groom! The secret to a perfectly shaped eyebrow can be summed up in 4 points… or rather 4 lines: the beginning, the highest point of the arch, the end and where it all comes together.

  1. The inner edge of your brow should line up with the outside of your nose.
  2. The highest point of your arch should be where the diagonal line extending from the outside of your nose to the outside of your pupil would hit.
  3. The outer edge of your brow should taper off at the point where your eyebrow and the diagonal line from your nose to the outside corner of your eye would intersect.
  4. The bottom of the inner and outer edges of your brow should line up horizontally.

But before you get too comfortable in front of that magnifying mirror, make sure you have all the proper tools to achieve amazing arches…

    • Small scissors: After you've brushed all the hairs in one direction, snip any strands that are noticeably longer than others. And always cut across the top of the brow, never down.

    • Mineral Pigment Powder: Before you begin to pluck, give yourself a guide. Fill in your brows with an eyebrow powder and pluck away only the strays. One of my fave shade is the Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powder in Irresistible.

    • Tweezers: The most important tool is, of course, a sharp pair of tweezers. Lancôme La Tweezer Précise will allow you to pluck with precision just like the pros.

    Armed with these tools and tips you can achieve shapely brows, even sans salon.
