The right brow shape can and will make a dramatic difference in the way you look.Some people cannot handle waxing/sugaring, even threading because their skin is overly sensitive, which will cause them to breakout in the area they got threaded or waxed.  This happens to my sister, so I tweeze her brows for her, and after tweezing she has no bumps.

1. Wipe area clean with alcohol
2. OPTIONAL: If you dislike pain, try numbing the area with a  topical numbing cream or spray.
3. I put a little Vaseline on my brows after I brushed them so I can see the shape better.

***Don’t stand too close to the mirror when shaping

Decide on what shape you’d like your eyebrow to be. This is where it gets a little confusing.
You can mark each section off with a white brow pencil or concealer to cover the hairs you’ll tweeze, & tweeze after or you can tweeze as you go along.
4. If u take a pencil, pen or something long & slim hold it parallel to the side of your nose. Where the brush meets your brow is where your brow should begin.


5. To find the end of your brow, extend the pencil diagonally from your nostril, following the outside edge of your eye toward the brow. Where the inside edge of the pencil hits is where your brow should end.
6. To find your arch hold the pencil parallel to the outside edge of the colored part of your eye (the iris). Where the pencil meets the brow is where the highest part of your brow should be.
TWEEZE CORRECTLY!: Hold skin taut by gently holding skin firm with your free hand while tweezing, means less tugging and pain on the skin.
If the hair is just too short for tweezing, don’t push the tweezers into the skin. Scraping, bleeding or even scarring can result if you get a little too forceful with your tweezers. Having some hair is a better option over broken skin. Instead, just wait until the hair is a bit longer and can be easily grabbed on to.
7.Trim your brows -Brush them up and the really long hairs will be very visible. Snip it with a pair of tiny scissors.


I use these tweezers because it allows you to get a more precise line & clean look like if you waxed or threaded. They’re expensive but, they have a lifetime guarantee & you can always send them back to be sharpened. La Cross sells similar ones for a cheaper price I think $6.99 or something.

If you live in Brooklyn, I’ll do yours for you – for a fee of course lol

  1. Hell Kim Porter. I was checking out your blog on "eye brow shaping" and I don't know if I am slow but I feel totally confused (still) after reading it. ex. when you say"slim hold it parallel to the side of your nose. Where the brush meets your brow is where your brow should begin" as bad as I want to I can't visualize it. Can you post pics to help me with the steps. If you like, take a look at my pics and let me know how I can improve. thanks, lady!

  2. Hi, I will post pictures for this post. But, basically what i mean by parallel to the side of your nose. Stand the pencil or whatever tool you're using at the side of your nose (straight up & down)

  3. Awesome Post… I like this way of eye brow Shaping…I love your fantastic post….Thanks For great Sharing with us…I will try to use this way of eye brow shaping…..

  4. I must shamefully admit that I can do nothing with my brows by myself and I always have to go to a professional who tweezes them for me… I always wanted to learn to tweeze them myself, so to always have the result I want without spending so much money. Next time I'll follow your tips from this post, maybe after all I'll learn to tweeze my eyebrows (though I remember the last time I did it was something terrible…).
