A Lesson on Brow-Shaping

So yesterday, my friend Kirsten came over for part II of our quest for beauty!
She had never had anything waxed before!
This is exciting news for someone like me!
I was so excited when she agreed to be a model for
me to demonstrate how to shape your brows.
{I think that EVERYONE has some shaping they can do.
I have not met one person who has perfect brows.}
Anyway, onto the instructions:

Step 1: Using a small comb or make-up brush, comb your brows upward. You are going to trim anything that goes above your natural brow line.
This sometimes seems scary at first, but trust me on this one!
Step 2: Once you have both brows nice and trimmed, you will use an eyeliner pencil or make-up brush to determine where your brows should begin, end and arch.

Line the pencil up with your outer nostril, straight up. This is where your brow should start.

Step 3: Next, angle the pencil so it hits the middle of your iris when you are looking straight. This will determine where your arch should be.

Step 4: Angle it now a little further to the outer corner of your eye.
Where the pencil hits is how long your brows should be.

You can use a light eyeliner pencil to mark your measurements if you are tweezing.
We waxed Kirsten's, but I don't recommend you try that on your own!
Come to a professional!!
{Like me!!}

Here is the BEFORE....
And the AFTER!!
Ta da!
It totally opened up her eyes and gave her a very neat and clean look.

Thanks Kirsten!!
I hope these instructions make sense.
Please feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment with any questions!!


  1. Best post ever! My eyebrows are my biggest source of frustration on my face! After seeing your instructions and looking at mine, I realize mine need a lot of work! Thanks for the info!

  2. I love the pictures with my hair all pinned up. I think I'm going to start wearing it like that everyday. Great results. Thanks friend! You are amazing.
