We've all seen women who over-pluck their brows. With only a thin line of hair left, and a super high arch, they look as if they are constantly surprised. And we've also seen women whose brows are badly in need of a tweezing, with the kind of brows that nearly grow as one—a unibrow. So, where do you find the happy medium between the two? It all depends upon the proximity of your eyes, your natural brow color, and the density of your brows. Here are some great tips for shaping your eyebrows to achieve a more polished look, and enhancing the loveliness of your eyes:
Before tweezing your brows, give them a trim. Using a brow brush or comb, brush them upwards. Any hair that extends up beyond the natural brow line should be cut away. Use a pair of sharp brow or nail scissors to trim your brows. Then, brush them straight down and trim them again. Once you've determined the beginning, arch, and end points for your brows, tweeze one hair at a time from underneath, then step back and look before continuing. If you have blonde brows, you may need to fill in with a brow corrector or pencil.
