It goes without saying that perfect brows are among the biggest things happening in beauty right now. Brows can make or break a face. But even the most beautiful, perfect brows need occasional maintenance. And when it comes to choosing a service technique, things can get a little bit tricky.

These are some of the most common mistakes when fixing your brow. Over widening your eyebrow gap is a no-nos!

Often when people are taking care of your brow or just extra shaggy ends, they end up plucking a gap between their brows that’s wider than the Grand Canyon. It looks incredibly unnatural and just plain bad.

All you need to do is to hold a thin makeup brush or pencil and line it up vertically with the edge of your inner tear duct. That’s the farthest an eyebrow should be plucked. Do not pluck or ignore your eyebrow natural arch just because your eyebrows don’t have a sharp 45 degree angle arch doesn’t mean there’s no arch there. There’s probably at least a slight arch along the top edge. You could be looking fierce when plucking your brows in a rounded or straight line by keeping that arch hidden When plucking, match the bottom edge to that top arch. You’ll find the arch becomes more distinct when you shape its opposite side.

Try to match your eyebrow shape, it is okay if they have slight differences. You’re going to end up over-plucking in your quest to make your brows look identical. Remember this common mantra: “Eyebrows are sisters, not twins.”

Refrain for plucking your brows too short or keeping them too long. Short brow can make your eyes and nose look too big. Extending your brow too far out will shrink your eyes and dominate your face. The golden rule for length is to take your makeup brush or a pencil, line it vertically against the side of your nose, then tilt it away from your nose so the other end rests at the outer corner of your eye. The top of the pencil/brush handle is where your eyebrows should end.
