Here are the insider tips on how to get the right width, shape, and colour:

Through Thick and Thin: If you have a tiny face with delicate features, thick brows can be too overwhelming. If you have a low brow bone should also avoid going too full. {You want to open your eyes—if the space between the brows and the upper lashes is small, make the eyebrow thinner and more arched.} If you have a higher-set brow bone, thick brows are the more flattering option. If you divide the face into thirds, the spaces between the hairline and the brows, brows and nose base, and nose base to the chin should be equal in length. Wider arches are also best for fuller faces.
Colour Theory: Arches look best when they’re within one to two shades of your hair colour: If you’re brunette, they should be one shade lighter; if you’re blonde, they should be one shade darker.
Tweezing rules: To avoid an over-plucked “tadpole” look, never force your brows into something totally unnatural. Giving yourself a fake arch will be painfully obvious, so don’t tweeze haphazardly or pencil in colour where it doesn’t exist. Instead, take note of where the coloured portion of your eye ends: Brow arches should never start before the outer edge of the iris or you’ll wind up with a hook brow.
Aim for a triangle shape, with the top of the triangle stretched longer, away from the nose. And to protect against over-tweezing, shape from underneath—you can easily clean up stray hair above the brow, but if you tweeze the top, it’s more likely that you’ll lose your natural arch. If tweezing gets the better of you, allow a couple of weeks for anemic brows to grow, then visit a professional to get back on track.
