How to Arch Your Eyebrows:
Locate Your Starting Points
No eyebrows are alike. We all have various starting and end points, and you'll need to find where yours are. Flip your tweezers upside down so the open end is pointing downward, and place it vertically adjacent the outer edge of the base of your nose.
They should sit on the outside of your nose, between that and your eye. Your eyebrows will begin so they are in line with the outer edge of your nose. Mark on your face where your eyebrows begin so you don't lose your place. Then you will need to check the other side of your face to find the starting point. It's crucial that both sides are in line with each other. The last thing you need is for one eyebrow to begin lower down than the other.
Mark Your End Points
Place the tweezers on an angle toward your cheek so that the open end is at the bottom of your nose and the other end reaches the outer corner of your eye. The point where the tweezers intersect your brow is where the hairs should end. Mark it with your eye pencil, then pluck the hairs away from the line.
Decide on Brow Thickness
Starting just below the completest part of your brow, use an eye pencil to draw a line at the bottom edge of your brow; it should be above any stray hairs and it should follow the original shape of your brow's top line, which may be angled, somewhat curved, or even straight.
Shape Your Arch
Look straight into a mirror, now that you have the thickness, it's time to shape the arch of your eyebrows. At this point, you can besides use your eyebrow pencil to lightly color in the correct shape of your eyebrows. A great rule is to simply remove 2-3 rows of hairs from above and below the eyebrow.
Begin by plucking the hairs in between your eyes. This will clean up the start of your eyebrows. Place the tip of the tweezers at the base of each hair and pick it out from the base. Don't pluck past the guide point you marked or your eyebrows will look too short. If you think you've achieved, move onto the next eye and even it all up. You can then determine if anything else actually needs to be plucked. Once you're satisfied plucking, you can apply aloe vera gel, which will calm the redness right away.
Follow these simple steps and excellent eyebrows will be yours!
