A well-shaped eyebrow is almost as good as an eye lift! Learn eyebrow shaping tips and techniques in these Howcast eyebrow tutorials.
You Will Need
- Eyebrow pencil or powder
- Brow gel
- Light eye shadow
- Eyebrow stencil kit (optional)
Stop tweezing immediately. Highly arched, thin brows can actually age a person, so put down the tweezers and back away. Study your face to see what brow contour works best with your features and aim for that shape.
Grow according to plan
Look into the mirror and observe the regrowth. There's no need to embrace a hairy unibrow while growing back your eyebrows. Pluck judiciously, allowing brows to fill in underneath the arch first.
Be patient. Fill in sparse areas with an eyebrow pencil or a powder in a color similar to your natural brow shade. Apply the pencil or powder in light, swift strokes rather than in a continuous line. Hold unruly hairs in place with a light brow gel.
Hide brow stubble
Hide dark eyebrow stubble with eye shadow that is slightly lighter than your eyebrows' color. Apply it underneath the arch and blend it into the brow bone.
