Eyebrows are sisters, not twins.

So, this post is all about eyebrows. Eyes are the window to the soul, right? Well eyebrows are the window frames, and nobody wants to look through a window with cracked paint and cobwebs.

So, get 'em cleaned up ladies.

There are a million ways to go about shaping your 'brows. I usually just follow the natural shape of mine and tweeze the little extra hairs out, but for those of you who need more of a guide to follow, this is for you.

  • Tweezers, preferably a good pair. Nobody wants to be pullin' on skin.
  • Grooming Scissors (optional)
  • Business Card, or something equally straight and firm.
  • White eyeliner (if you're into having a tangible line to guide you).
First off, I’d recommend taking a spoolie or eyebrow brush/comb and straightening them up a little.

Take your business card and line it from the edge of your nose through the inner tear duct of your eye. This is where your ‘brows should start.
 (If you decided to use an eyeliner pencil, draw a line here as a guide).

Move the card so it goes from the edge of your nose through the center of your eye. This is the recommended place for your arch to be. 
(draw a line to connect this point with the first line)

Next you’ll need to line the card from the edge of your nose to the outer corner of your eye. 

This is where your ‘brows will end.

Now is your time to shine! Well, pluck. These guide points you’ve created come together to form the shape your ‘brows are meant to be to compliment your facial structure. So at this point, just pluck everything outside the lines created by our guide points and anything above the line at the top of your ‘brows, just trim with some grooming scissors.

As far as thickness goes, that is completely up to you. Mine, for example, are fairly thick and straight at the beginning, but thin out as they go. It’s just personal preference.

So fresh and so clean

Good luck with your shaping and comment how it goes or if you have any questions.

Next post will be on foundation application, woop!
