If you are like most women, perfecting your makeup is important. This means that your eyebrows are going to have to be the right shape to accentuate your facial features. In other words, you want the eyebrows to complement the frame of your eyes. Many women make lots of eyebrow mistakes that they don’t know how to fix. Eyebrows should be well-designed to flatter the shape of your face. Women have various types of eyebrow shapes including:

  • Thick
  • Thin
  • Narrow
  • Wide
  • Arched

The key is to have the shape of your eyebrow being realistic. To avoid eyebrow mistakes, we have provided some suggestions that will help.

Enhancing your eyebrows

Did you know that every angle of your facial features rely on your eyebrows to enhance your eyebrows? It doesn’t matter how you look at it – from the side or front. Eyebrows are essential in lifting the eyes as well as widening or narrowing the face. For example, if your eyebrows are full and thick, you might need to get them tweezed. For those with naturally unruly and thick eyebrows, you might want to keep them that way. For thin eyebrows, you will have to use an eyebrow pencil to fill them in. Thin eyebrows can be quite unattractive and does nothing to improve your appearance.

Too much plucking

Don’t do too much eyebrow plucking. This is a mistake for many women. Your eyebrows will thin out after a while. You will see gaps in the shape of your eyebrows. As you age, your eyebrows will get thinner. Too much plucking will only make it even thinner. Instead of plucking, wax your eyebrows. This shapes the eyebrows and keeps the hairs intact.

The right shape

When you shape the eyebrows, the goal is to go for a natural look. Women who opt for the comma eyebrow should know that this has a very unnatural look. With this type of brow, you will remove too much hair and create an arch. Avoid this by allowing your forehead to guide you. For women with a high forehead, the eyebrow arch should be higher. The opposite is true for women with a low forehead.

Bleached Eyebrows

Women who bleach the eyebrows should only lighten the brows and not darken them too much. On the other hand, don’t bleach your brows if you don’t have to! Instead, fill them in with powder or tint the brows. This is a temporary solution, but better than bleaching. Use a tinted gel. Make sure that it matches your skin tone. You don’t have to match your brows with your hair. The brows can be darker. The contrast is actually flattering.


Since eyebrows come in a variety of shapes and character for different people (thin, thick, busy, short and unruly), you have to create eyebrows that match your personal taste, style and facial features. Using the right makeup can enhance your eyebrows. Do you have any suggestions to fixing eyebrow mistakes? What has worked for you? Our readers would love to know. Leave your comments below.
