Step 1: Measure your browline properly

"To measure correctly, hold your finger parallel to the side of your nose," says makeup expert Gail Sagel, founder and president of FACES Beautiful and creator of the Brush-On Liquid Mineral Makeup. "This is where your brow should begin. When you point your finger diagonally away from your nostril, toward the outside edge of your brow, you’ll find the correct end point."

Brush eyebrows upward using a brow brush, and then use small scissors to trim away any excessive length. If your brows still need work after the trim, you can start plucking.

“To create definition and shape, you must tweeze from both the bottom and the top of the brow," says Sagel.

Use your tweezers to remove obvious strays outside of your brow line. Tweeze along the natural shape of your brow, grabbing each hair at its root to avoid breakage.

"Go slowly and take breaks, making sure that you are not eliminating too much hair –- bold brows are in!" says Sagel. When you are done tweezing, use brow powder that matches the color of your natural brows to fill in any gaps and to add definition to your brows.
