How to Draw in Your Eyebrows with Fool-Proof Guides

Introduction: Enhance Your Brows and Frame Your Eyes Flawlessly

If you’re unhappy with your naturally shaped eyebrows or have fallen victim to the over-plucked trend of the 90s, don’t worry! Our beauty editor is here to share some expert tricks to help you shape your brows and enhance your overall appearance. With the right guidance, you can easily maintain perfect eyebrows through accurate shaping, routine grooming, and careful plucking.

The Importance of Accurate Guides

Before we dive into the techniques, it’s crucial to understand the significance of accurate guides when it comes to eyebrow shaping. Our brow experts recommend plucking in optimal light and using a pair of tweezers after shaping your brows. To ensure symmetrical results, step back from the magnifying mirror and assess your face as a whole. Remember, the goal is to achieve harmony, not necessarily perfect symmetry. By revamping your natural shape and creating a fuller, more natural-looking brow that complements your bone structure, you can transform your entire appearance for the better.

Understanding Your Unique Brow Shape with Foolproof Guides

Every person’s eyebrow shape is unique and requires a tailored approach. There are various shapes, including round, straight, arched, steeply arched, thick, and thin eyebrows. To determine your natural brow shape, we’ll guide you through the use of accurate brow guides. Additionally, if you have sparse spots in your eyebrows, we’ll demonstrate how to fill them in, leaving you with full, natural-looking brows.

To begin, draw lines using the guides to define your eyebrow shape. If you have pale brows, consider using a shade or two darker than your natural color. After shaping and grooming, you can tweeze away any stray hairs to achieve clean and well-maintained brows.

Step-by-Step Guide to Achieving Perfect Eyebrows

Step One: Draw the First Guide

Using a pointed wooden stick, draw the first guide. Position the stick from the outer nostril to the bridge of your nose, and use an angled brow brush and brow pomade to draw the mark. The first mark should align with the inner corner of your eye.

Step Two: Draw the Second Guide

For the second guide, place the wooden stick against the outer nostril, directing it diagonally across your iris and ending along your eyebrow just before the peak. This mark will indicate the arch of your eyebrow.

Step Three: Draw the Last Guide

Using the same wooden stick, align it with the outer edge of your nostril, pointing towards the outer corner of your eye. Draw the third line at the tail end of your brow.

Step Four: Draw the Upper Brow Line

Now that your guides are marked, start creating the upper brow line. Use an eyebrow pomade and brush to draw a soft line from the beginning of your brow to the end, connecting the guide marks. This line should contour gently above your brow.

Pro Tip: Avoid applying too much pressure or drawing with a heavy hand, as this can result in a harsh and unflattering look. Lighten your grip and reduce pressure to achieve a softer line.

Step Five: Comb the Brow Hairs

Once your brow shape is defined, use a spoolie or brow brush to comb the brow hairs upward, following the direction of the hairline. By brushing them up, you can easily identify and trim any long hairs that extend beyond the guiding brow line.

Step Six: Remove Stray Hairs and Add Feathery Strokes

To achieve a polished look, remove any stray hairs that grow between your brows and outside the outlined shape. Fill in any sparse areas with feathery strokes. Remember to pluck in the direction of hair growth to minimize the risk of ingrown hairs. Keeping the skin taut will also help reduce pain and minimize damage to the hair follicles.

Note: Practice filling in your eyebrows with reduced pressure and a loose grip until you achieve the desired result.

Step Seven: Clean up Excess Pomade

Use micellar water to dab away any excess pomade on your brows, creating a more natural look. If any pomade smudges onto your skin, gently remove it using a sponge or a cotton swab soaked in micellar water.

Step Eight: Cleanse with Cleansing Milk

Cleanse the edges of your brows with cleansing milk and perfect the angles using a liner. Avoid using your fingers to wipe away marks to prevent smudging.

Step Ten: Fill in Any Gaps

Add the finishing touches by filling in any gaps in your brows. If necessary, lightly go over certain areas with a slightly darker shade to achieve the desired depth. Remember, the darkest part of your eyebrow should be beyond the peak, towards the tail. As a general rule, aim to make your brows two shades darker than your hair color.
