How To Perfect Those Eyebrows

If our eyes are the windows to the soul, then the eyebrows are surely… the curtains? Okay, so this isn’t the most flattering of comparisons. But these days, we pay more attention to our eyebrows than ever before. Most women couldn’t imagine a day without shaping and filling in their brows as part of a regular beauty regime and even men are getting pluck-happy with a pair of tweezers to their monobrow from time to time!

But it was only a few years ago that doing anything to our eyebrows was the last thing on our minds. Think back to the thin, sparse brows of the 90s and early 2000s... yep, you’re probably cringing, but eyebrows weren’t really regarded as something to pay attention to back then. So just why are our eyebrows so important to our ‘look’, and what can we do to keep them in tip-top condition?

Shaping the face

Our eyes and brows are one of the most expressive parts of our faces. We are able to convey a multitude of emotions simply by making the most subtle of changes to this area with our muscles and nerves. These changes are so small most of us don’t even realize we are doing it half the time – but it can have a big impact on our appearance and on how other people perceive us.

When it comes to your brows, be very careful of the shape you choose. Any shape that points downwards too much will make you look constantly angry; any shape that lies diagonally upwards will make you look said. Plus, everyone knows to avoid the ‘surprised look’ of drawing your eyebrows on too high! The best thing to do is to follow your natural brow shape and brow bone for guidance; remember, a natural look is always more flattering.

Neat and tidy

Just like any type of hair, eyebrows can be unruly. Hands up who’s woken up in the mornings before with their brows sticking up at all sorts of random angles? Some people visit professionals regular to shape their natural brows, whether it is by waxing or threading.

But this can get expensive, not to mention having to remember to book in regularly for appointments. Arm yourself with a great pair of tweezers – you can grab a bargain by visiting a site like – and do it yourself at home. Just don’t over pluck, and you won’t go wrong.


Deciding what color pencil or gel to use for our brows can be a bit of a minefield. After all, there’s nothing worse than seeing a fair-haired girl with unnaturally black eyebrows – it’s a dead giveaway. The number one rule is to only ever venture a couple of shades darker than your natural hair color, otherwise, it will simply look bizarre. You can potentially get away with a darker brow for a night out when you will be wearing a full face of makeup. But keep things lighter and more subtle for your daytime vibe.

Perfect eyebrows are every woman’s dream and I hope this helps you achieve your look!
