If your face is even more elongated and with sharp features, like Megan Fox’s, upward-looking and curved eyebrows would be a good option. But don’t overdo it! When the distance between the base of the eyebrow and the inner corner of the eye is very small, the face looks angry.

Square face

How to make eyebrows shape for a square-shaped face? A square jaw makes your face look angular, so your option is gently rounded eyebrows. A high, curved arch is perfect to soften and visually elongate your face. Follow Keira Knightley’s example: opt for natural, moderately sloppy eyebrows. No strong curves or high arches. Otherwise it will make your face look coarse.

How to shape the eyebrows correctly?

When correcting your eyebrows yourself, you need to know the basic pattern that allows you to create a perfectly correct shape. First, determine three points: the beginning, the end and the peak. Then connect them to each other and mark the lower contour of the eyebrows. You can pluck the hair that goes beyond the outline.

The easiest way is to use tweezers, with their help it is easy to pick up even the smallest hairs. But there is another technique that only a professional can do – it’s eyebrow correction with thread.

An old-fashioned way to get a beautiful eyebrow shape is to correct it with thread. Only a master can do it properly. The disadvantages of this method are not the most pleasant feelings in the process and not the most natural result. However, if your goal is to have graphic, well-defined eyebrows for a minimum amount of time, then you can safely use the thread. This method is suitable only for girls with very dense eyebrows, that need to be corrected quite thoroughly.

How do i pluck my eyebrows at home?

It’s the master’s job to make a new eyebrow shape. But it’s up to you to maintain (clean up everything unnecessary). An important point! You need good quality tweezers for this. Ideally with a beveled and well-sharpened tip, with which it is easy to pick up even the smallest hairs.

It is better to choose tweezers made of stainless steel – a durable material that does not irritate the skin (read about other parameters to pay attention to when buying tweezers here). And if you find “extra” hairs before you leave the house, do not immediately take the tweezers, postpone the procedure for later. It is better to mask the unwanted hairs, which “stand out” from the general shape, with a corrector.

Before tweezing your eyebrows, apply a cold compress or a piece of ice to your skin to reduce the pain. Repeat the procedure at the very end.

How to trim my eyebrows properly?

Use straight (not rounded!) scissors with straight blades. Trim only those hairs that are out of shape. Such manipulation is especially necessary for curly hairs.

    • If you have light brown hair and light eyes, on the contrary, take a pencil a tone darker to emphasize eyebrows.

          If you want to make the color of your eyebrows more intense, apply eyebrow shadows in a wet way. To do this, moisten the beveled brush with water beforehand.
