A perfectly shaped eyebrow tattoo starts at the inner corner of your eyes and ends just a bit outside of the outer corner of your eye. If you hold a pencil against the side of your nose to the outer corner of your eye, the tail of your eyebrow should end on the pencil. The arch of your eyebrow should be located just outside of your iris.
Achieving a perfectly shaped eyebrow can be difficult especially if you have coarse, long, or sparse eyebrow hairs. One wrong plucked hair could leave a bald spot or patch on your brows that will take months to fill depending upon the rate of your eyebrow growth.
To avoid any accidents there are several guidelines to follow when shaping your eyebrow. The first is to never ever wax your eyebrows. Wax just does not offer the level of precision needed in the eyebrow area and a little spilled wax could accidentally remove a large chunk of your brows. Instead, get your brows professionally threaded or if you’re shaping your own brows, use good quality tweezers or shape your arch by shaving with a razor.
Another rule for shaping your eyebrows is to never remove hairs from the top of your brows. The direction of eyebrow growth means that removing from the top will result in uneven patches in your eyebrows. Instead, shape your arch from below and do so very slowly. Use a white eyeliner pencil to mark the shape you want and work cautiously removing just a couple of hairs a day. Overzealous plucking could result in an exaggerated arch and shocked expression for months.
If you have long eyebrow hairs that refuse to stay put, brush your eyebrow hairs in their natural growth direction and using a small pair of scissors, trim the unruly hairs along the outline of your eyebrow. Be careful and trim one hair at a time. Trimming large chunks of hair at a time could result in uneven patches of hair.
