4 eyebrow pencil tips for youthful-looking brows

Did you know a flattering brow depends on the placement of your nose, your face shape, hair colour and bone structure too? Well, it’s somewhat easy to figure it all out when you’re young, but as you start to age and your eyebrows start naturally thinning, it’s a little more complicated. Fortunately, there are some simple brow styling and shaping tips that can help you get those youthful-looking brows that take years off your face. Check ‘em out…


1. Powder first

Pick the right arch point

The first shape we’re discussing is the sensational tail arch. The slight arch towards the tail is the most versatile way to shape and fill your brows. This shape can work wonders to bring some sharp angular details to an otherwise rounder face, the arch can even suit a ridiculously sharp jawline like Margot Robbie - yes, it looks absolutely stunning on her. This is also a flattering shape for someone who likes to keep their hair out of their face, but still wants to add a framing detail to their face. So, claw clip ladies, if you have these razor sharp brows, pin your locks up for that maximum oomph effect.

2. Clean up the brow line

Pick the right arch point

If you want to add some lift to your cheekbones, a centre arch is the perfect makeup look for that. You can achieve an incredible centre arch by getting your brow technician to clean up stray hair in the middle of your eyebrow. Do not pluck the arch itself, as it can get too intense and give you that always shocked look. This brow shape is also a good way to balance out wide faces and add some symmetry to them. So, if you feel this is the one for you, your next parlour appointment awaits you.

3. Pick the right start and finish line

Pick the right arch point

If your natural brow doesn’t have an arch to it, chances are it is of the straighter variety. Straight brows look very chic in an understated, subtle kind of way. If you have naturally straight brows, do not create an arch, instead, keep them brushed with a spoolie. If you wish to have straighter brows, you can get them shaped by a professional, and keep doing the upkeep whenever you see any angular details pop up.

The diva’s brows - yes, Deepika Padukone has these gorgeous ones. The most high maintenance shape on this list, tapered brows are thicker on the inner 2/3rd corner and subtly arch down to be lighter and more slender towards the end. Since natural brows are usually of equal width throughout, a tapered shape has to be created by a professional eyebrow technician. They need to be maintained more often as well, regular waxing and grooming being an absolute must!  

While these brows are the ones that are making the talk and chatter these days, there are loads of other brow shapes out there…out of which one might just be the perfect match for you. So, if you love the compliments and don’t want to miss out on the best, learn about them all here!

Paying attention to each and every detail, we’ve curated an unmatched step-by-step process that promises brows that will make one and all go, WOW. So, dive right in.
