Before getting on to your cat eyes or smokey eyes makeup looks, this is the first trick you need to do try in order to determine the perfect eyebrow shape for your face. Using an eye pencil or a simple liner applying brush will help you determine exactly what point should your eyebrow start from and at what point should they end at. The length of your brow plays an important role in giving your eyebrows an overall good and well-balanced shape.
Tip # 2 – Trim your eyebrow
The next aspect you need to focus on once you have chosen the best shape of the eyebrow for your face is to trim them! Trim off the extra edges, use tweezers to pick out extra hair from unwanted places. This step requires a lot of patience and precision. You have to make sure that you don’t pull out any extra hair as it will imbalance your brow overall. You should decide whether you want a thick brow or thin and then shape the brow accordingly.

Trim # 3 – Remember to outline your brow with a good eye pencil
Ever wondered how your favorite Kim Kardashian has the perfect eyebrows? You can get it too if you know all the little tricks to work with! To achieve the perfect shape of eyebrows, always remember to outline your brow with a good quality pencil. This is actually the first step of shaping your eyebrow using any beauty product. Always use a lighter shade of pencil to outline them. Avoid using black eye pencils or eye liners on the brow as it would end up being very prominent and a little too desperate! Who wants that! Always use softer shades like warm browns to outline flawlessly.
Tip # 4 – Fill your brow with a good shade
This is a very important step once you have outlined your brows. Fill in the empty spaces of your brow with a mild, warm tone eye shade. A good advice at this point is to choose an eye shade that is lighter than your hair color. So if you have rich dark brown hair, choose a lighter shade of brown to fill your brow. Remember to keep it minimal and don’t push it too further if you want a softer look. However, if you want an overly dramatic look, you can try double layering your eyebrow!
Tip # 5 – Blend, Blend, and Blend!
Just like you blend eye shade on your eyelid or blend in the foundation on your face, it is essential to blend the eye shadow on your eyebrow as well. This will help to give your brows a more natural looking feel and will be softer on your overall face. This is important as the eye shade blends with the outline that you have made on your brows. Use a small brush to softly blend with the outline and give it a lighter, natural look flawlessly.

The last thing your will need to do to make your eyebrows pop out on your face without being too elaborate is to highlight them with a hint of mascara! To make your eyebrows more prominent without being too dramatic, simply highlight your brows using a concealer and highlighter from the lower edges.
