By  | 

Plucking perfect eyebrows to achieve that flawless arch can be a painful process. I have over plucked and under plucked for a long time and now I believe I have finally achieved the perfect shape. Yay for me!

Try these pro beauty tips for the perfect eyebrow arches

Eyebrow Tools to Use For the Perfect Brow

  • Eyebrow Powder, for filling in thin or patchy spots.
  • Eyebrow Brush (with one angled powder brush and one spoolie brush), for applying powder and combing through hairs.
  • Eyebrow Scissors, for trimming long hairs
  • Tweezer, for tweezing stray hairs.
  • Eyebrow pencils (with a spoolie brush on the end), for correcting the shape of your brows and then filling them in.
  • Eyebrow serum, for growth.
  • Eyebrow highlighter, for underneath the arch of your eyebrow.
  • Clear eyebrow gel, for keeping your eyebrow hairs in place once you’ve groomed them.
  1. Choose the Right Tweezers

Opt for a sharp, slanted style.

  1. Tweeze After Your Shower

Warm water opens the follicles and softens hairs, helping them slip out more easily.

  1. Ease the Plucking Pain

If plucking is too painful or its right before your period (when skin is most sensitive), dab on a numbing gel before you tweeze.

  1. Ditch Your Magnifying Mirror

This tool can make it look like there’s more hair to remove than there really is, which can lead to over plucking. Instead, use a regular mirror in a well-lit room.

  1. Know Your Arch Limits (hold a pencil for guidance)

Your brows should begin directly above your tear duct, peak in line with the outer side of your iris, and end at a point that falls 45 degrees from the outer corner of your eye. Be sure not to arch your brows too high or they’ll look unnatural.

  1. Create Your Shape

Once you’ve determined how your brows should curve, outline your ideal arch using a soft, creamy brow pencil. Then remove only the hairs that fall above or below your self-made stencil.

  1. Brush Up

Style your arches with a brow brush or a clear, brow-gel wand, coaxing hairs upward at the start of your arch and brushing the rest toward the end of your eye.

  1. Fill in the Blanks

Colour in sparse spots with a pencil or a powder.

Overplucked? Refrain from tweezing for at least three weeks so you can see the natural growth pattern and shape.
