Pluck, Wax, or Thread? The Best Brow Shape for Your Face

Drop your tweezers! Overplucked or too-thin eyebrows can make you seem older than you are, but the proper makeup techniques can give your brows a red-carpet-worthy look. Kim Soane,... More Drop your tweezers! Overplucked or too-thin eyebrows can make you seem older than you are, but the proper makeup techniques can give your brows a red-carpet-worthy look. Kim Soane, lead makeup artist for Bobbi Brown, stopped by to share some of her favorite techniques. When it comes to hair removal, should you pluck, wax, or thread? Each has benefits. If you're looking for the best way to preserve your natural look, Kim says, "definitely start with plucking." If you're looking for a beautiful shape that won't overly affect the skin around the brow, try threading. Speaking of shaping, the key to it is finding your arch. "Everybody has a natural shape," Kim says, and it's easy to find yours. Look at the starting point of your brow. Three quarters of the way from the starting point is where your arch should be. Bobbi Brown Brow Kit Next, use a brow pencil to draw in that natural shape. Take a small eye definer brush and fill in sparse areas with a dark shadow that matches the color of your brow. "The smaller and tighter the brush you're picking, the more defined your brow is going to be." Brush up the head of the brow for a fuller, natural look that doesn't overpower the face. To watch Kim demo proper eyebrow-shaping techniques, and to find out what beauty blunders can make you look older, check out this episode of "Daily Shot." Less
