Shape Your Brows For You

It’s all about the brows these days and shaping yours to suit your face is the most important part when plucking. Your brow shape can make your eyes look bigger, nose look smaller, and compliment the shape of your face if done right.

The standard rules for shaping eyebrows are:

A – Start directly up from the edge of your nose

B – Your brow should end in line with the corner of your nose and the outer corner of your eye

C – Your brow arch should be in line with the outer edge of your iris

You can however ignore point A and start your brow at your desired nose bridge width (see dotted line). This will give the illusion of a thinner nose.

Don’t go overboard with your arch point C – a straighter brow is more youthful and more sophisticated. An overarched brow creates a puffy eyelid so keep it straight to give the illusion of a thinner face.

The most important thing to remember is to follow your natural shape as this is usually the perfect brow for your face shape!
