Eyebrow Basics: Tips To Finding Your Perfect Brow Shape

The Mona Lisa doesn’t have eyebrows. That’s a little known fact about one of the most beautiful women in recorded history.

Today, eyebrow maintenance is part of most women’s daily beauty routine. We see them as an important feature of our face. A great pair of arches is the easiest way to polish our overall look.

But if you want to keep it simple (because who has time to keep up with eyebrow trends?), then stick to the basics.

3 Tips to finding your perfect brow shape

  1.  Find your arch. The space between the brows should be equal to or a little wider than your eyes. Use a makeup brush or pencil to assess.
  2. Whether you pluck, tweeze, thread or wax always guide your natural shape and never over pluck. Thin brows will make you look older. Unlike the 90’s modern brows are bigger and thick.
  3. Gloss rather than pencil your eyebrows. Boy Brow by Glossier is one of the best products on the market for natural, fuller brows. And the application is a piece of cake. (watch the video!)

While eyebrows are a highly personal feature (some people like a thinner line, others are looking for a more lush look), there are beauty trends you may choose to follow. The trend right now is toward a longer brow with a fuller arch like our cover model image.

Happy beauty!
