I know it might sound a bit crazy to some of you, but sometimes I spend up to 15 minutes making sure my brows are just right – they’re super important to me! Eyebrows are one of your defining facial features, and perfectly balanced brows can make a massive difference to your look. Trying to make our brows look like sisters is difficult enough most of the time, but using an eyebrow ruler – yep, it’s a real thing – is the answer to turning them into identical twins, I swear! It’s super simple, and it makes the whole process of doing your brows so easy, plus you can get one on Amazon for less than $3!
How to use a brow ruler:
So, to start with you need to identify the center of your face and align the ruler so that it sits just above your brows. To make it easier, you can tape it in place so that it doesn’t move (I don’t know why they don’t come with an elasticated strap around your head)! You’ll probably now realize that your brows don’t even start in the same place – this is totally normal, almost nobody’s brows meet the middle in the same place, and one will usually be closer in than the other. The first thing you want to do is fill one of them in so that they start in the same place – once you do that it will create so much harmony, you won’t believe. A little tip: if you have a slightly wider nose, you can bring your brows in slightly closer together, and it will make your nose appear slimmer (check out more nose slimming tips here).
Once you’ve got your brows matching on the inner corner, use the ruler to make sure they’re also finishing in the same place. So, if your left brow ends at number 8 on the ruler and the other finishes at number 9, then draw a little extra on the left brow to make sure it also finishes at 9. You can also pinpoint where your brows arch and correct them with a brow pencil so that they both arch in the same place, but even just making sure they’re the same length will conquer so much!
The brow stencil also works amazingly to help you pluck and shape your brows, check out my grooming routine using my Tweezerman X Huda Beauty Collection and a brow ruler:
