Achieving Your Ideal Brows

As a professional aesthetician, a lot of what I focus on is the shaping of eyebrows.  It’s the first thing I look at when I see someone (yes, I’m probably visualizing in my head how I would reshape your eyebrows).  I know how hard it can be to be to get your brows looking right!

I’ve found that most people don’t even know where to begin, so I’m going to give a few pointers on how to achieve those brow goals.

Know Your Guidelines

First, use a thin makeup brush to do a few measurements.  The front of your eyebrow should align with the upper bridge of your nose.

Next, measure a straight line from the corner of your nose, going across the pupil of your eye. This is where the highest part of your arch should be.

To find where your brows should end, use that brush to measure a straight line from the corner of the nose through the outer corner of your eye.

Doing the Work

You now know how they should be shaped, so it’s up to you to determine if there’s areas that should be grown in and left alone for a few weeks.  Getting full beautiful brows is a process.

Grab your best pair of tweezers (I use these slanted Tweezerman Tweezers) and make sure you sit back about a foot away from your mirror.  Sitting too close can mess up your judgement and cause you to shape your eyebrows differently.  You won’t get them perfectly symmetrical, but you also don’t want them to be completely different!

Touch Up

Once you have tweezed as much as was needed, now you can get your brow pencil out.  Using light strokes, fill in any holes, or areas that are looking sparse.  Use a brow brush to comb them, and set the final shape.  I use Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. It keeps my brows looking natural, and it’s smudge-proof so they stay beautiful all day!

Try not to spend too much time obsessing on making them perfect. Remember, they’re sisters, not twins!
