Ways To Shape Your Eyebrows
Start with softening the eyebrow area by placing a warm and damp washcloth over it for few seconds or try it after showering. Choose the area where you can get enough natural light.
You will need a clear mirror in front of you and also a handled mirror beside you. After softening eyebrows, brush your eyebrows upward with the help of an eyebrow brush. After brushing, take a small scissor and trim the hairs that are too long.

Take an eyebrow pencil and hold it vertically at the outer edge of your nose. The tip of the pencil that hits the brow will show where eyebrows should start. Slant the pencil and draw the eyebrow line towards the outer edge of your eye. This will show you where your eyebrow should stop. Give your eyebrows the desired shape with the help of a white eyebrow pencil. Try to keep natural shape of your eyebrow intact to the maximum point.
Now tweeze the hairs which fall past the pencil lines one by one, grabbing closely from the root. Try to remove as little as possible from the top. Also ensure minimum breakage and clean pluck. For smooth plucking, pull the hair towards the direction in which it is growing. Repeat the same process on the other side by following the same steps.
Now examine the eyebrow arch. If it is lying naturally above your pupil when you are looking straight, then your eyebrow has been shaped correctly. Use a pencil or brush to define your eyebrow or use a handled mirror. If you find that you have formed a definite arch, then just clean up the area slightly. If you find any stray eyebrows, pluck them.
