It is an area of thick, delicate hairs above the eye that follows the shape of the lower margin of the ridges of some mammals. Their main function is to prevent sweat, water, and other debris from falling down into the eye socket, but they are also important to human communication and facial expression. It is not uncommon for people to modify their by means of hair addition, removal, makeup, or piercing.
Cosmetic methods have been developed to alter the look of one's, whether the goal is to add or remove hair, change the color, or change the position.
Several options for removing hair to achieve a thinner or smaller one, or to correct a unibrow, include tweezing, waxing, threading and electronic tweezer. The most common method is to use tweezers to thin out and shape it. Waxing is becoming more popular. Lastly, there is threading method, where a cotton thread is rolled over hair to pull it out. Small scissors are sometimes used to trim them, either with another method of hair removal or alone. In time, hair that has been plucked will stop growing back. Some people wax or shave off theirs and leave them bare, stencil or draw them in with eye liner, or tattoo them on. In Western societies, it has become more common for men to pluck part of their eyebrows.
The first rule in how to shape yours is: You can only work with what you have.
You'll have to do the same, and work with what you currently have. You can remove hair or use pencil to make them look fuller, but you can't instantly grow them. The following steps will help you decide what hair to keep or to remove.
Draw an imaginary straight line from the outer sides of the ball of your nose to your brows. That is where they should start and where you should begin, especially if you're new to shaping. It's also good for wide set eyes (too far apart), because it makes eyes appear closer together. A large forehead also benefits because taking too much hair in between makes the forehead look even bigger.
On deciding on how to arch one of the most important parts of designing, we are going to use other features for a reference. For girl who doesn't have a lot of eyelid small arch for shape is perfect.
So placing a ruler (or something else straight like an eye liner) on the tip of your nose as a reference, and taking the ruler over your pupil brings you to a section where is going to be the ‘peak’ or highest point of your arch.
Another reference point is the top of the nostril, still aiming for over the middle of the pupil for a medium arch, but the far side of the pupil for a large arch. (Tip: right nostril for right eye, left nostril for left eye).
A big mistake women make is not trimming them. When the hair is long, sometimes women end up taking out too much hair when they really needed to take out bulk. Here's how to tell if you need to trim: Brush them straight up, and if there are any hairs longer coming out of your natural shape on top, then trim it.
Yes, you can do this on your own, it's very simple. Use a fine-tooth regular comb or an brush to push hairs up, and then just trim what is outside the shape with small scissors. If you have rather bushy ones, then you'll need to take additional steps to remove more bulk.
