Tweeze stray hairs above and below your natural eyebrow, including any hairs in between your two brows.

2- Trim the excess hair.

Women have to trim the hairs by placing small eyebrow scissors horizontally above your brow, and carefully cutting the hairs that reach beyond the top of your brow line.

Start by using soft strokes to underline your brow. Then, use a lighter shade for underlining and filling in.

Shaping your eyebrows

1- Measure your inner brow.

Place your eyebrow brush vertically on your nose. Moreover, keep in mind that everyone’s face shape is different along with the positioning of their eyes.

Make a light mark with some eyeliner to keep track of the place where your hair should start. Then remove any hair before that mark.

3- Find the end of your brow.

Place your eyebrow brush on a diagonal starting from the outside corner of your nostril, extending to the outside crease of your eye.

Filling in your eyebrows

1- Consider your skin tone.

Your skin tone should influence the color you use to fill in your brows.

2- Start filling in your brow using a powder.

Touch your brush in the brow powder. Then, tap off some excess powder on the side of the powder container, and start to lightly outline the top and bottom edges of your brow.

3- Outline the rest of your brow.

Focus on adding powder and creating volume on the outside edge of your brow rather than layering powder in the middle area of your brow.

4- Brush out the color.

Spread the colored powder by a small brush. This can help make your brow look less harsh and naturally defined.

5- Set your brows.

Use a clear brow setting formula to keep all your hairs and color in place.
