Get Perfect Brows with this Easy Brow Tip!

One of the most important features on your face are your eyebrows.

Having beautifully shaped brows changes the entire look of your face!

Now, I'm not talking about thick brows, or thin brows, or light brows, or dark brows, I'm talking about nice looking eyebrows.

The perfect brows for your face!

Your brows can be thin or thick, dark or light, it doesn't matter. What does matter is their shape.

Having nice eye-framing brows will make you look younger, rested, and put together.

You can literally have on a tinted moisturizer, a swipe of mascara, and a lip gloss and look totally fresh when you have a beautiful set of brows framing your eyes.

And the best part, beautiful brows are not at all hard to achieve once you learn my easy brow tip!

My easy brow tip has just 3-steps. I'm going to take you through them one at a time.

How to Measure Your Brows for the Perfect Shape

Step 1

Grab something thin.

I like using my eyebrow brush for this.

I'll tell you my favorite eyebrow brush for this in a minute...

Take your eyebrow brush and line it up with the crease of your nose. Like I'm doing in the photo.

Not the outside of your nostril, but the inside crease where your nostril meets your nose.

Run your eyebrow brush straight up to your eyebrow. This is where your eyebrow should start.

If you have hairs that pass under your eyebrow brush, towards the bridge of your nose, you'll want to remove those hairs.

If your eyebrow doesn't meet the eyebrow brush where it's placed, then you'll want to fill that area in.

Keep in mind that your natural eyebrows are lighter towards the bridge of your nose and get darker as they move out towards the outer corner of your eye.

When filling that area in, whether by eyebrow pencil, or powder shadow and an eyebrow brush, you want to use little quick, hair-like strokes with a light hand. You can even use a lighter shadow shade or pencil, here.

I like filling my brows in with an eyebrow brush and powder shadow.

My favorite eyebrow brush is the Duo Eyebrow Brush by Keshima because it has an angled brush on one end and a spoolie on the other. It's the only eyebrow brush you need to shape and fill in your brows when using powder shadow for your brows.

Step 2

Now, in order to determine where your arch should go, you need to measure for it.

Hold the bottom of your eyebrow brush against the crease in your nostril, don't let it go, and gently tip the top of your eyebrow brush until it crosses the pupil of your eye.

Like I'm doing in the photo.

This is where your eyebrow's natural arch is.

Some people have well defined arches. And others, like me, don't.

Regardless, this is the natural arch of your eyebrow and from here you can choose to just follow your brow's natural shape, or exaggerate that arch. Totally up to you! But now you know where it should be instead of holding your eyebrows up and guessing.

Step 3

So now we need to figure out where your eyebrow should end.

This is called your eyebrow tail.

And, like the first two steps in this series, we need to measure for it!

With the eyebrow brush held firmly against the crease in your nostril, don't let it go, and continue to tip the top of the brush down until the top portion of the brush meets the corner of your eye. And, stop!

In the photo above, that is just above where the ferrule meets the wooden portion of my eyebrow brush.

This is where your eyebrow should end.

And just like we did with the start of your brows, if you have hairs that pass under your eyebrow brush, past the corner of your eye, you'll want to remove those hairs.

If your eyebrow doesn't meet the eyebrow brush where it's placed, then you'll want to fill that area in.

For the tail, you want to taper any filling that you do so it ends in a pointed tail.

Take the same measurements on the other side and you will have the perfect template to create the perfect brows for your face!

Best Tools for the Job

When you have the right tools, any job is easier, including shaping your brows!

I already shared my favorite eyebrow brush, the Duo Eyebrow Brush by Keshima.

The other thing I use to make taking my eyebrow measurements much easier, and without needing to wear my glasses to see my face to do so, is a powerful lighted magnifying mirror.

If you need to wear glasses to see your face when you're doing your makeup, I highly recommend you invest in a nice, powerful, lighted magnifying mirror.

You'll be amazed at how much easier applying your makeup becomes when you're not wrestling with your glasses while trying to apply it.

My favorite magnifying mirror is the Professional 8.5" Lighted Makeup Mirror, 10X Magnifying Vanity Mirror with 32 Medical LED Lights.

I can see every detail on my face, including every gray hair in my eyebrows (not pleasant, but effective) with this powerful magnifying mirror. You will love it!
