My Eyebrow Routine - Re-shaping, tweezing & filling in.

My eyebrows were looking rather scruffy and were do a good tweeze and a little re-shaping so I thought it would be good to show you how I do my eyebrows.

These are the tools & products I use (I don't use the brow pencil or powder set together I use whatever one I'm wanting to use that day):

        (L-R scissors, tweezers, Maybelline Eye Studio Master Shape Brow Pencil in soft brown £2.99, Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara in medium brown £4.99, MUA Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrown Kit £3.50, Eyebrow brush, Real Techniques Brow Brush that comes in a set for eyes £21.99, and a mirror.)

First I brush out my eyebrows, if I'm re-shaping them I  then draw my template on my eyebrows with a white eyeliner following 3 points: 
  • Inside point (A) Position a pencil from the outside corner of your mouth past the outside of your nostril to the top of your nose. Where the pencil crosses your natural brow is the best "inside" point for your eyebrow 
  • Arch (B) - Look straight ahead into your mirror. Follow an imaginary line straight up through your iris to where it crosses your natural brow line. That's the ideal place for your arch.
  • End point (C) - Position the pencil from the outside of your nostril past the outer corner of your eye. Where the pencil crosses your brow line is the best place for your brow to end.

Then I would trim my eyebrows holding the hair's in place with my eyebrow brush while trimming them with the scissors. Once I feel like they're been trimmed nicely I tweeze all the stray hairs that don't go with the template until both eyebrows are matching and tidy. When that's done I'd wipe the white eyeliner off of my eyebrows and then fill them in either with an eyebrow pencil or powder, whatever one I feel like using that day and lastly I like to set them in place with my brow mascara which adds a little more color.


(btw eyebrows are sisters, not twins so it's near impossible to get them exactly identical. You'll have one eyebrow that is always neat and goes how you truly want and the other one will be the sparse scruffyish one. It's so annoying but that's how it is. As you can see my eyebrow on the right is the scruffy one haha)


  1. I'm so bad with my eyebrows! I just wax/pluck them into an arched shape, and that's it... Like a half circle! Will wait for them to grow out and try this method!

    1. I used to be like that too but I went to college for 2 years to do a beauty and spa therapy course, so since then I do my eyebrows in a way it will go with my face shape, which is basically my natural brow but tames a little haha.
