If you have an angular face, make your brows less harsh to soften up your features. You can still have a nice brow arch without making it too sharp. Compare Angelina Jolie's soft brows with her sharper brows (below)..

A longer brow will balance out your features if you have an oval shaped face. You don't need too high of an arch, of course, you could if you wanted to accentuate a long face but notice how Cara Delevingne's thick, beautiful eyebrows aren't too straight or too arched?

Other details such as length and thickness affect how you look too. Thicker brows can make your look more youthful but don't go too heavy handed as that might be too harsh and unnatural-looking. The perfect in-between is ideal.

The length of your eyebrows affects your look too. Shorter brows make you look more innocent and eyebrows that are too long can age you as they tend to create a droopy effect.

3. Practice Drawing Your Eyebrows the Right Way

The way you fill in your eyebrows may differ depending on the shape, arch and look you are going for. However, there are few basic steps you need to nail down in order to get the perfect brows. 

Step 1: Groom it

 Whether your preferred method of grooming your eyebrows is threading, waxing, tweezing or simply trimming your eyebrows with eyebrow scissors, #eyebrowsonfleek begins with shaping and grooming. Leave it to the professionals if you are not confident to do it on your own.  

 Step 2: Brush it

Using an eyebrow spoolie, comb your upwards, starting from the front and ending at the tail of the brow. This allows you to see the gaps in your eyebrows, which is where you will need to fill them in.

Step 3: Measure it

Now take the eyebrow pencil and hold it from the inner edge of your nostrils straight up to your eyebrow.

 This is Point 1, where eyebrows should begin and Point 4 is where your eyebrows should end. To measure where your eyebrows should end, hold the eyebrow pencil diagonally from the outermost part of your nostril to the outermost part of your eye and note where the eyebrow pencil extends past your eye.  

 Step 4: Fill it
