Get Your Best Eyebrow Shape

Don't chase someone else's eyebrow shape; enhance your own to get your best eyebrow shape.

Scientific Method For How to Shape Perfect Eyebrows: Part 2

I recommend you do this at least once.

Why?  Because it will give you a solid sense of the dimensions of your own face, from which you can discover your best eyebrow shape.

Do not be a slavish follower of makeup fashion (unless it happens to suit you of course).  Sadly though, the latest and greatest 'look' rarely does suit us and that's when we can look tragic.

Too often a RULE about how to apply makeup, especially how 'older women' should apply makeup, is followed without due diligence in deciding what is actually right for YOU! 

And who makes up these rules anyway?

If you cannot trust your own reflection in the mirror to guide you, then ask someone you can trust to give you feedback. 

However, make sure they are not a member of the beige brigade :)

How to Perfectly Shape Your Eyebrows

Step 1

Using a pencil or a ruler, place it against your nose and the outer edge of your eye, as shown.

This is where your eye brow should end.

Mark with a white eyeliner pencil.

(This also easily lets you see which hairs you need to pluck out.)

Step 2

Now place a pencil or ruler against the side of your nose and the inner part of your eye.

This gives you a guide as to where your eyebrows should start.

(Unless you have 'close set' or 'wide set eyes'.  If this is you, check out Perfect Eyebrows)


Mark with a white eyeliner pencil.

Step 3

Using the corner of your mouth and the outer edge of the iris as a reference, find where the arch of your eyebrow should be.

(Or from the side of your nose and through the middle of your iris, much the same result).

Mark with a white eyeliner pencil.

How To Easily Get A More Youthful Look

Make the arch slightly higher, and make the brow slightly shorter.

Doing this gives a lifting effect, which then creates a more youthful look.

Shaping the perfect arch to your eyebrow is one of the best non-surgical ways to transform the look of your face and gives you an instant lift.

And now for the really scary line!

A word of advice. Always check out the 'professional' who does your permanent eyebrows or you too could look like this.


Definitely NOT perfect eyebrows.

So, do your brows begin and end on the same line?

I now use Arbonne's Toffee eyeliner as my best eyebrow color. 

Yes, I know, it's an eye-liner, but it is the perfect color for my eyebrows. 

And I also get to use it as an eyeliner ... winning!

Toffee also has a detachable sharpener, which I'm finding very useful.
