Give Your Eyebrows a Lift

Give Your Eyebrows a Lift

Use these four steps for the balanced, clean eyebrows to keep your look polished.

Well-shaped eyebrows always make an impact — your friends will say you look radiant without really knowing what changed. It's all in the art of the eyebrow!

Step 1: Keep Them in Shape
Take it easy! If you have bushy eyebrows, don't go to ultra-fine eyebrows from one day to the next. Start by analyzing the natural shape of your eyebrows. Are they straight? Curved? V-shaped? You’ll want to do your best to maintain the original shape when you start plucking.

Step 2: Pluck Carefully
Always remove hairs below the eyebrow — never above it. Your aim is to raise the eyebrow's line, not flatten it. Also make sure you don't pluck too much from the eye's inner corner, since when the eyebrow is not lined up with the eye's inner corner, it looks artificial.

Step 3: Watch for Balance
Work on both at the same time. Remove a few brow hairs from your left eyebrow, then remove the same quantity from the right eyebrow. Alternate a few plucks from each eye to ensure you don’t go overboard. You’ll also be able to keep an overall view of balance.

Step 4: Define Your Limits
Put a pencil vertically against your nostril. Remove all the brow hairs growing past the pencil line (going toward the other eyebrow). Put the pencil diagonally from the base of your nose to the outer corner of the eye. Remove all the brow hairs growing beyond the pencil line (ear side).

When you put all of these steps together, you’ll be on your way to clean, beautiful eyebrows — and a symmetrical overall look.
