Getting Started

Getting Started

1. Start off with clean eyebrows. Using a gentle makeup remover, swipe a cotton pad over each brow until it wipes clean.

2. See the diagram above. If you cannot find your natural brow shape, let this be your guide.

3. Measure out where the brow starts (A)

4. Now measure where your arch should be (B). It should line up with the iris of you eye.

5. Now measure where your eyebrow should end (C).

6. Start marking it off white liner.

7. Now eliminate access hair by drawing over them. This is a preview of how your eyebrows will look before you begin removing the hair. The white eyeliner serves as a wonderful guide, so pluck only outside and ON the white eyeliner, but not inside it. Be careful and take your time.

8. Wash off the white eyeliner, and do a spot check and tweeze off any excess hair.

9. Fill it in with the eyebrow powder with an angled brush. Rule of thumb, if you have dark hair go 3 shades lighter, if you are blonde go 2-3 shades darker.

10. Now your eyebrows should be perfectly shaped without overplucking! The whole process takes very little time.

Pro Eyebrow Tips & Tricks

Pro Eyebrow Tips & Tricks

What’s in style—thin or thick eyebrows?
The natural eyebrow is back for fall—nothing to thin or dramatically arched.

What are the most important rules to keep in mind when getting your eyebrows done?
Do not overpluck. Thin eyebrows tend to age a woman.

What’s a big no-no when it comes to plucking eyebrows?
Waxing—you can never be as precise as you can by tweezing or threading. And too much space in between. Eyebrows should be approximately 1/2″ apart in between.

What do you recommend for too much brow hair?
Trimming—but not straight across. Cross-cross the scissors after you brush your hair upwards to achieve a natural, full brow.

What an eyebrow trick to get a more youthful look?
Lightening the brows will instantly take years off your face.
