Fortunately, there are enough tools and examples to still create a perfect eyebrow. Which color should you use? How about eyebrow tint?

Shaping your eyebrows is certainly not super easy. It's also a bit scary because what if it goes wrong? It's not like your eyebrow hairs grow back in a day. You can of course have your eyebrows done by a specialist, but this is pricey and you can easily do it yourself with a little explanation! Below you will find a step-by-step plan for shaping your eyebrows and how you can bring your eyebrows into a beautiful model every day:
Step 1 - First it is important that you let your eyebrow hair grow as much as possible. Before you really start shaping your eyebrows, it is important that you have a full bunch of eyebrows.
Step 2 - Now it is time to epilate and shape your eyebrows. There is a certain technique for this. You can easily apply this technique by means of a pencil. In this video you can see how to measure where your eyebrow should start, end and shape, mark this. After this you can determine and mark the thickness. You can therefore epilate everything around the marked area. Step 3 continues below the video!
Step 3 - Epilating your eyebrows is best done with tweezers. Avoid waxing, strips or string. With tweezers you run the least risk and you can work more accurately. So you can epilate everything that falls outside the mark. While epilating, pull the hair out in the direction of hair growth. While doing this, stretch your skin. That way it hurts less. Epilate your eyebrows with enough light and a clear mirror so that you can see what you are doing. Tip for a good pair of tweezers? KASHŌKI Straight Tweezers With Case .
