165Want to tweeze like a pro? Here are some tips to help you get perfect brow.

Avoid the angry brow. – Plucking your eyebrows the wrong way can create an “angry brow” effect.  To avoid this, begin tweezing close to the top of your eyebrow arch.  Next, carefully remove the thickness out of the inner corners by trimming just the longest hairs.    Then  trim the extra -long brow hairs by brushing eyebrows up and cutting to ¼ inch above the brow line.

Steer clear of the tadpole brow.  This outdated brow is thick in front then flows to an immediate thin arch and end of the brow.  Avoid this by not raising your eyebrows when you pluck them which can cause you to over tweeze the arch and tail.  Then allow your brow to grow the hair from the beginning of the brow to the arch to fill it in.

Make brows look fuller.  – Give your brows a thicker look by plucking the fine hairs just above the brow line.  Also take time to remove any peach fuzz from upper part of your brow and eyelid.  This will provide more definition to your look.

Don’t make eyebrows too thin. – Avoid over-plucking because it can completely change the look of your face.  As a guide, check to make sure your brows are as wide as three brow-pencil strokes. If your brows are too thin they won’t properly frame your face.Never shave brows and pencil them in.  Unless you are a professional make-up artist this is a huge mistake. It’s very difficult to draw on brows and make it look natural.

Creating the perfect arch is as easy as 1, 2, 3

1)     The inside of your brow should line up with the outside of your nose.  Hold a brow pencil to see where this line lies.  When you have found the correct starting point, draw a mark with your brow pencil.

2)      Then find the highest part of your brow by lining up your pencil with the corner of your nostril to the center of where your pupil is.

3)      Lastly, the outer edge of your brow should form a line from the outside of your nose to the outer edge of your eye.
