Step 1: When you want to gain the perfect brow to enhance your eyes, you need to follow a few key rules. Start by taking a pencil and placing it vertically against your nose – this is where your eyebrow should start

Step 2: Next, hold the pencil upwards from the edge of your iris (the coloured bit of your eye), which should be the position of the brow archStep 3: Finally, to find where the eyebrow should end, line the pencil up diagonally from the tip of your nose to the outer edge of your eye, this will determine the basic shape of your brows.
Step 4: It's a common myth that you shouldn't take hair from the top of the brow, it's fine to tidy stray hairs that fall outside of the shape you've mapped out. If you're after this season's fuller shape and have been a bit tweezer happy in past years, a HD Brow service (First Visit, 1 Hour, £35) could be ideal for you as it's a combination of threading, tweezing, waxing, trimming and tinting to leave you with your ideal shape.Alternatively threading (from £8) or waxing (from £9) can help you achieve a clean finish.

Top Tip: To keep your new brows in shape from dust to dawn, just run a slick of clear mascara over the hair to keep them put!
