Achieve your ideal eyebrow look: A beginner's guide to brows

Shaping your eyebrows is like polishing the frame of a magnificent painting. It can highlight your best facial features, draw attention to your eyes, and help tie the rest of your makeup together.

Don't know where to start? Follow this step-by-step guide on how to shape eyebrows for beginners. It all starts with mapping out your brows:

  • Find the starting point of your brow by aligning the Quickliner™ for Brows Eyebrow Pencil vertically with the outer edge of your nose to determine where your eyebrow should start. Mark this point lightly.

  • Next, pivot the pencil to find your natural arch. Softly mark this point as well.

  • Finally, pivot the pencil to the outer edge of your eye to identify where your brow should end and leave a dot there.


You're now ready to fashionably move forward with your favorite eyebrow style. Here are five different looks for perfectly defined brows that last all day.


1. Classic brow.


The tailored, balanced eyebrow style enhances your natural features with a polished and timeless look.

Step 1: Use a shelf-sharpening, long-lasting eyebrow pencil that has 8-hour wear (like the Quickliner™ for Brows Eyebrow Pencil to connect the dots from your "eyebrow map" and fill in your brows from the mid-point out to the end point.

Step 2: Fill in your brows from the mid-point to the center. Apply a highlighter like Instant Lift for Brows just above and below your arches to create contrast and definition.

2. Lifted brow.


If you're aspiring to a modern eyebrow style that creates an uplifted, youthful appearance, subtly raising the arch and tail end of the brows will do just that.

Step 1: Lightly apply a small dash with Quickliner™ for Brows Eyebrow Pencil using short, feathery strokes directly under the inner corner of the brow hair.

Step 2: Lightly apply a dash using short feathery strokes above the brow arch.

Step 3: Apply a small stroke of Instant Lift for Brows just under the arch.

3. Stylized brow.


This bold and artistic eyebrow look is ideal as a fashion-forward and individualistic statement.

Step 1: Square off the head of the brow with short strokes, then fill them in to the heightened arches. For a fuller, bolder look that will last all day, try a product such as Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse.

Step 2: Extend the end of the brow by 1 centimeter past its natural tip.

Step 3: Brush brow gel through your brows to set them in place.

Step 4: Highlight your arches by dabbing a small amount of brightening concealer like Even Better™ All Over Concealer + Eraser just under and over them.

4. Natural confident brow.


The natural confident brow is a nod to effortless beauty, showcasing a confident, natural appearance while still maintaining a groomed and polished look.

Step 1: Fill in the head of the brow and any sparse areas using a pencil in the same shade or slightly darker than your natural brow color. (Quickliner™ for Brows Eyebrow Pencil comes in six shades to choose from.)

Step 2: Fill in the bottom of your arches.

Step 3: Thicken the ends of your brows slightly.

Step 4: Brush brow gel or mousse like Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse upward through your eyebrow hair to create a full effect.

5. Minimalistic brow.


To embrace a simple, understated approach, this style focuses on subtle enhancements and clean lines for a naturally refined look.

Step 1: Lightly apply a concealer in your shade or one shade lighter like Even Better™ All Over Concealer + Eraser, available in 42 shades, all over your brows.

Step 2: Use a clean mascara wand to make sure all eyebrow hairs are covered. Set the concealer with a powder like Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder to give the appearance of a bleached or barely there brow.

With these steps, you can master the art of eyebrow shaping, elevating your look to its fullest potential and showcasing the beauty that is uniquely yours.
