The general rule of thumb for eyebrow shaping has been that if you took a ruler to the inner corner of your eye, that is about where the brow should begin. But be careful, this is the farthest you want to go. If you're unsure it's better to leave more. It's easy to remove hair instead of waiting for hair to grow and penciling them in.

Eyebrow Shaping Tips:

  • Eyes too close together? This point of starting at the inner corner of the eyes makes them "appear" farther.
  • Others that may benefit. Those with small foreheads, narrow faces and small facial features.
If you've come to this page first, see the other option in: Where the eyebrow should begin.

Going to our model, you can see her eyebrows already go a bit further in toward the eye.
