How To: Brow Sculpting At Home Like A Pro!

Updated: Feb 7, 2022


Brow Sculpture is a total eyebrow makeover, utilizing professional brow alignment and rebalancing techniques to create definition and symmetry of the brows.


Here's What You'll Need:


Step 1:

Start by identifying the three key parts of your eyebrow: the head (the part closest to your nose), the arch (where your brow is naturally the highest), and the end of the tail (the part nearest to the outer corner of your eye). Mark them using a white eyeliner. (if you are waxing your brows turn the wax pot on beforehand to start heating up the wax)

Step 2:

Now it's time to begin shaping. Take your spoolie and brush out your brow hairs.


Using tweezers pluck the stray hairs below your natural brow shape (if you would like more of an high arch remove a few hairs in that area; not recommended for beginners).

Once that's done brush your brow hairs upward using a spoolie then trim them. You will trim the hairs by placing your cosmetic scissors horizontally above your brow and carefully cut the hairs that reach beyond the top of your brow line. For very uncooperative eyebrow hairs, consider using a spoolie to also brush the hairs downward, and use the same technique to cut the hairs that extend below your natural brow shape as well.


Using a razor to shape your eyebrows can give you the same look as waxing or tweezing, but without the pain. You will get a closer shave if you apply shaving cream to the area of skin surrounding the eyebrow (only put shaving cream over the part of your eyebrow you want to shave; use a cotton swab to wipe away any excess shaving cream). You can effectively shape your brows using a razor but the hair will grow back quickly.

  • Hold your brow skin taut using your non-dominant hand to hold the skin around the eyebrow taut (this will help you get a closer, more detailed shave). Then use your dominant hand to begin shaping your brow. Gently stroke the razor in the direction that your hairs grow to remove the hair below your natural brow shape; check your progress in a mirror as much as possible.

  • If any of your eyebrow hairs are longer than the natural shape of your brow, consider brushing those hairs upward using a spoolie and trimming them. Trim the hairs by placing your cosmetic scissors horizontally above your brow and carefully cut the hairs that reach beyond the top of your brow line. For very uncooperative eyebrow hairs, consider using a spoolie to also brush the hairs downward, and use the same technique to cut the hairs that extend below your natural brow shape as well.

Using wax you'll start with prepping the brow by removing any makeup or heavy oil from around the brow region with a wipe or cleanser.

Warm the wax to the proper temperature; it should be warm (not too hot), with the consistency of liquid honey (if the wax looks like oil let it cool down and thicken).

  • After heating your wax, use the wooden spatula from your kit to apply a thin layer of wax to the area you want to treat (apply it in the direction of your hair growth). If using soft wax apply a muslin strip by placing it lightly on the wax; slide the strip down slightly once applied to ensure you don't get any wax on areas you do not wish to wax (be sure to leave a little room at the end of the strip for you to grip for removal). Press the strip down on the wax to bond them together. You will then hold the skin taut and pull the strip in the opposite direction of hair growth. You will do the same for the top of the brown and in between them.

  • With hard wax you'll wait til the wax has harden which will indicates it ready. You will remove this the same as soft wax by holding the skin taut and pulling in the opposite direction of hair growth (you have to flick the tail end of the wax to slightly lift a piece of the it to have part hold during removal). You can wax again if you mixed some hair, however; with soft wax you CANNOT double wax; you will have to tweeze any leftover hairs.

Repeat these steps for the other side. Remember brows are cousins not sisters, they maybe slightly different in fullness, length, and shape. Don't worry we can fix that with step 3.


Step 3:

This is my favorite part... filling and carving the brows. You will need your favorite brow pencil or powder along with concealer for this part.

  1. Using your spoolie brush your brow hairs out.

  2. Lightly draw a line along the bottom edge of your brow (using a pencil or with your angled makeup brush if using powder). This will determine the brow thickness. Follow the natural curve and shape of your eyebrow. Do the same for the top of the brow starting about 1 inch from the beginning of the brow.

  3. Lightly fill in the spares areas of the brow using hair like strokes or you can lightly shade it in (doing this lightly will allow you to build the color pay off as you go).

  4. Take your spoolie and blend out any harsh lines in the brow by stroking upwards from the bottom and downwards from the top.

  5. Use your concealer (a lighter shade) to highlight the arch of the brow. Use a concealer that's your exact shade and highlight the beginning of the lower brow and along the entire top of the brow. Note: Use a concealer that's your exact skin tone to highlight the top and bottom of the brow for a natural everyday brow.

  6. Use your blending brush to blend in the concealer by creating a smooth finish.

Tip: For beginners, I recommend using a brow pencil. For my powder users, make sure dap the excess powder off your angled brush before you begin (this will prevent you from using too much product in creating a super dark harsh brow).


Remember it may not be perfect the first time but with practice you will get the hang of it.
