DIY Beauty: How to shape your eyebrows

Section: Skin

As a mum, a well-groomed pair of eyebrows that open up tired eyes make all the difference to your look. Salon visits are not always a priority for busy mums, so here’s how to get the same results in your own bathroom

Founder of Mayfair’s Nails And Brows, Sherrille Riley explains how to get the best results: 

See a professional first 

Find the time to visit a salon for an expert to establish a well-shaped brow. With a clear guide in place, it will be obvious which re-growing hairs need to be removed every two weeks.

Buy a brow brush 

Use it to brush your brows upwards first. An old toothbrush will do the job too.

Sketch the shape first 

It’s easy to over-tweeze and difficult to know when to stop. Use a brow pencil to draw on the shape you want before you even think about picking up your tweezers.

Dull the pain 

Before you begin, press a warm face flannel onto your skin. This softens and opens hair follicles, making it easier to tweeze the hairs out.

Tweeze responsibly 

Tweeze away the excess hairs outside of the shape you’ve drawn in. Only remove minimal hairs from the top of your brows. If any are too long and unruly, it’s better to trim them with a pair of scissors.

Get rid of the grey 

If you have greying brows, apply your regular hair dye to them whenever you colour your hair. Leave on for no longer than 7–10 minutes and be careful to only cover the hairs and not the skin.
