    Here's the link to the best article re: eyebrow shaping I've found:

    http://www.cosmeticscop.com/learn/pf.asp...

    It will show you how to choose a shape and how to pluck your brows properly.

    You might want to get them done by a professional to have them plucked, waxed or threaded after letting your brows grow out for 2-4 weeks. A professional will create a flattering shape that you can maintain at home.

    Explain that you want a natural looking brow and let the aesthetician know if you are on any medications. (ex. Retin-A thins the skin so users should avoid waxing.)

    Waxing is fast but threading* is one alternative I've found it to be far less irritating than waxing. Some aestheticians will just pluck stray brows if you ask.

    *Info re: threading:

    If your brows aren't too bushy, you could just skip plucking, etc.

    Instead, use a lash/brow comb and comb your eyebrow hairs upward. Trim any long ones that really stick out with small cuticle scissors. Trim individual hairs & take it slow. Step back and check the results frequently.

    You can use a clear brow gel to shape them and keep them in place. Maybelline makes a good one.

    BTW plucking used to really irritate my skin & I've found a few things that help:

    1. Good tweezers - Tweezerman are the best. Really good tweezers help you get a good grip & pluck in one tug.

    2. Plucking after a shower when my pores are open & my skin is free of makeup, moisturizer.

    3. Following up with toner.

    4. Cleaning tweezers with alcohol.

    5. Using chilled aloe vera gel to sooth my brows after I'm done.

    simple? honey nothings simple, BUT i suggest tweezing, and if they ask you what shape? say "i just want them trimmed" it feels odd, but works hurts for like a second but {so does tweezing}

    It depends on your facial features.

    Beacuse if you have a really fat face, and have skinny-skinny eyebrows ull look retarted, and if u have a skinny face bushy ones will look crazy too
