Whether you spend four or 40 minutes on your makeup, well-groomed brows are the difference between looking okay and looking fabulous. A well-shaped brow can lift and open your eyes, making you look younger, more sophisticated and more rested. If your brows are truly unruly, splurge and get them done by a professional, then be diligent about removing new growth to maintain the shape.
To reshape your brows yourself you'll need about 40 minutes. Don't rush. Once you pluck a hair, it takes a long time to grow back. Here are the tools you'll need:
- A large mirror near a window (natural light will allow you to see each brow hair clearly).
- A good pair of tweezers. (We love Revlon's slanted/rounded angle tweezers or anything from Tweezerman.)
- Grooming scissors.
- A small brush (either a baby toothbrush or an old mascara wand that's been cleaned will do).
Remember, less is more. You can always go back and pluck again. Before you pluck, determine what your best shape is. In many cases, nature has already given you an arch that will become more obvious when you remove hairs along the bottom of the brow. Don't try to copy someone else's brow -- work with what you have.
