The shape of your brow defines the ‘look’ of your face. It could give you a bold look or a subtle look. You could look plain or glamorous – all by giving the right shape to your brows. But, did you know you could easily shape your brows at home too? If you wish to avoid frequent trips to a salon, it’s best to try out these few brow shaping techniques – at home!

Step 1: Leave them alone
To reach your full brow potential, it’s important to let your eyebrows grow out for over six to eight weeks. The longer the better as it lets you see your natural eyebrow shape.

Step 2: Find a shape
You can easily find the beginning of your eyebrow by holding a brow pencil vertically at the middle of each of the nostrils. Mark the spot for later reference. Pivot the pencil to the outside of your iris. This is the arch – mark that too for later reference. Next, to find the tail end of the arch, swing the pencil until it grazes the outer corner of the eye. Pencil that in too.

Step 3: Trim them a little
Firstly, give your eyebrows a little trim. It’s important to cut down the long hair. Brush your hair up with a spoolie and trim only the very long hairs.

Step 4: Massage
Gently massage your brow with a generous amount of facial oil. This essentially lubricates the skin and hair follicles. This takes the edge off the skin’s sensitivity from tweezing.

Step 5: Clean it up
Always tweeze the hair in the direction of hair growth. Make sure that you hold the skin taut. Step away from the mirror for a while to get a perspective. Then begin tweezing again.

Step 6: How to take care of skin irritation
It is essential that you calm any irritation to your skin after tweezing. Apply a cool gel – it will help tighten the pores too.

Step 7: For a fuller finish, you should..
Use a brow pencil if you have a few sparse spots. Feather-in some false hair in a shade that matches your natural eyebrow color.

Step 8: Keep tweezers off
It’s important that you keep the tweezers off for at least six weeks. After that you can repeat the process from one to seven!
