Even if you’re in a mad rush to head out, there’s one step in your makeup routine that you can’t skip. We’re talking about drawing your brows! Eyebrows are an important facial feature as they frame your eyes, shape your face perfectly and can make or break your entire look. However, mastering the way to draw your brows can be challenging for both makeup experts and amateur beginners. Read on to find out how to identify the perfect eyebrow shape for your face and learn how to draw them with the best eyebrow products such as pencils and gels! 

How to identify the three main points of your brows

Before you learn how to draw your eyebrows for beginners, it’s important to identify the three main points of your brows. This include the tip, the highest point and the tail of your eyebrows. Having this three main points marked out on your face ensures you have the framework needed to create any brow style!

Point 1: The tip of your brows

Defining the tip of your brows is vital so as to avoid overly spaced out brows or worse, a unibrow! Simply flip your makeup brush upside down and place it vertically against the side of your nose tip. Extend the tail of your brush such that it touches your brow — this is where your brow should begin! Using an eyebrow pencil, draw a vertical line to mark the spot.

Point 2: The highest point of your brows

Angle your makeup brush such that it touches the side of your nose and outer corner of your pupil. Draw a vertical line at the spot where the brush crosses your brow. This is the highest point of your brow and where the arch should be.

Point 3: The end of your brows

Finally, position your brush against the side of your nose and outer corner of your eye. Draw another vertical line to mark the end point of your brow. These three points will serve as reference points when you’re learning how to draw the various eyebrow shapes below.

How do I shape my eyebrows for my face?

If you happen to be a beginner at drawing eyebrows, you need to remember one thing – always blend it out! You need to groom your eyebrows so you can fill them in easily. Get an eyebrow trimming kit so you’ll have all the necessary tools to help you in this process! When it comes to buying brow products in the correct colour, steer clear of the black shade that may be too intense. Always go a shade lighter than your hair, like grey or dark brown, and never the actual colour! Still fuzzy about how to draw your brows? Here’s a guide to finding the best eyebrow style to suit your face.

  • Perfect eyebrow style for oval-shaped faces: Feathered brows

People with oval-shaped faces, like Modern Family sitcom actress Sofia Vergara, are usually envied for their almost-perfectly symmetrical look. If you have an oval-shaped face, you’ve won half the brow battle as we always strive for symmetry when learning how to draw eyebrows for beginners. With that said, instead of sticking to conventional brow styles, why not try something different with feathered brows! Not only are they dark and boyish, they are also bushy and nicely feathered out. Psst, they also make your face appear smaller. With the latest microblade brow pen, even girls with sparse brows can learn how to draw feathered eyebrows easily!

How to draw feathered eyebrows:

Step 1 – Grow your brows out as much as possible before tweezing away stray hairs around your brow bone. Do not trim the length of your brows, we want your brows to be as fluffy as possible. 

Step 2 – The Etude House Tint My 4-Tip Brow (available on Younfamily) is one of the best brow products for feathered brows. It has a fork-like design that resembles a microblading tool used in brow embroidery to create hair-like strokes. Pick one in a shade lighter than your hair colour. Then, fill in your brows in the direction of hair growth. Fan out your strokes at the tip of your brows for a bushy effect. 

Step 3 – Now, pick a shade that’s darker than your hair colour and focus on filling in your brows from point two to three. This creates the illusion of bushier brows. 

Step 4 – Coat your brows with the 3CE Eyebrow Mascara (available on 3CE Official Store) to sculpt every strand into place and you’re Vogue ready! 

  • Perfect eyebrow style for round-shaped faces: Arched brows

Round face beauties will need to draw their eyebrows with a higher arch, just like Emma Stone. Arched brows are one of the best brow shapes for those with round faces as they will create an angled point that helps to elongate your face. We suggest highlighting that arch with some concealer. Pick one that’s a shade or two lighter than your foundation to make your arch pop! To create precise strokes, we suggest using a brow gel and some concealer for the best results!

How to draw arched eyebrows:

Step 1 – Map your brows using an eyebrow pencil so you can adjust the arch before tweezing away any stray hair. Draw a 45-degrees upward sloping line above your brows from point one to point two and continue with a sharp descend from point two to three. Repeat this on the base of your brows. 

Step 2 – Using an eyebrow tweezer (available on Brainbow Beauty Tools Shop), pluck away the hair that falls beyond the brow shape you’ve drawn 

Step 3 – Pick the BILLION DOLLAR Brow Butter pomade (available on Strawberrynet SG Official Store) in a shade that’s lighter than your hair colour and trace the lines you’ve mapped out on your brows

Step 4 – Fill in your brows from tip to tail with the brow gel, ensuring that the colour intensity is uniform throughout

Step 5 – To make the arch more prominent, clean up around your brows with the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer (available on L’Oreal Paris Official Store) and pop the CLIO PRISM AIR Highlighter (available on Clio Singapore Official Store) on your brow bone! 

  • Perfect eyebrow style for longer faces: Straight Korean brows

Shorten your face with straight Korean eyebrows! Arches aren’t always the way to go and it’s time to take matters into your own hands by drawing more horizontal eyebrows. Learning how to draw straight Korean eyebrows is a must for those who want to achieve a more youthful and innocent appearance. Not only are Korean brows drawn straighter than their western counterparts, they are also slightly thicker than usual to mimic a child’s ungroomed brows. However, don’t mistake thick as bold. Most Koreans like to keep their brows lightly filled and without any harsh lines. Brow powders and brow pencils are the best for drawing straight Korean brows as they don’t result in bold strokes. 

How to draw straight Korean eyebrows:

Step 1 – Using an eyebrow razor (available on O.TWO.O Singapore Official Store), shave stray hairs above your brows to create a straight line from point one to point two. Do not shave stray hairs below your brows as those will lend your brow a natural Korean brow look.

Step 2 – Taper the tail of your brows with the shaver by creating a gentle slope from point two to point three

Step 3 – Comb your brow hair downwards using a spoolie brush (available on With a pair of eyebrow scissors (available on, trim any long strands. 

Step 4 – Now that your brows are all prepped, use the EXCEL Powder & Pencil Eyebrow EX (available on Excelmake SG Official Store) to create your desired brow shape! Make sure to pick a shade that’s lighter than your hair colour. Using the pencil tip, draw a straight line above your brow from point one to two. Draw another straight line at the base of your brow from point one to three. 

Step 5 – Connect the line you’ve drawn on the top of your brow to the brow tail with the eyebrow pencil 

Step 6 – Fill in the rest of your brow with the eyebrow powder, avoiding your brow tip 

Step 7 – Fill in any sparse areas with light, short strokes using the eyebrow pencil to mimic natural hair growth. Repeat this on the tip of your brows. 

Step 8 – Blend everything out evenly with a spoolie brush

Step 9 – Apply the Innisfree Skinny Brow Mascara (available on PRISM), in a shade that matches your hair colour, to keep your brows in place the whole day!

You can also be Miss Congeniality and help your eyebrows get along. Square-shaped faces like Sandra Bullock’s have really strong jawlines, so you have to balance them out with some S- shaped eyebrows.The brow dips down and up, creating an illusion of a longer face to balance out your proportions. When learning how to draw S-shape eyebrows, pick a stiff and pigmented eyebrow pencil so you can emphasize the highs and lows in the brows. 

How to draw S-shaped eyebrows:

Step 1 – Shaping your brows into S-shaped eyebrows requires you to map a fourth point — the spot in between point one and two. Using an eyebrow razor, trim the hair to create a straight brow from the tip of your brows to the new point you’ve created. 

Step 2 – From point four, shave 45 degrees upwards until point two to create a distinct arch 

Step 3 – Then, create a soft curve downwards towards the end of your brows with the razor. Make sure that the ends of your brows are not lower than your brow tips or you may look perpetually worn out and upset. 

Step 4 – From point one to four, fill in your brows thickly as if you’re drawing a Korean straight brow with the SISTER ANN Eyebrow Pencil (available on SISTERANN_Official store)

Step 5 – Thereafter, draw fine strokes upwards to accentuate the arch from point four to point two

Step 6 – Lastly, draw short strokes downwards to taper off your brow tail naturally 

  • Perfect eyebrow style for heart-shaped faces: Skinny brows

Be a sweetheart like Scarlett Johansson by penciling in some skinny brows for your heart-shaped face! Thin brows were THE look to go for in the past, but that doesn’t mean they’re outdated. This style is great for those who want to look more mature and professional. To avoid overplucking your brows, we suggest making full use of your concealer and an eyebrow brush pen when you’re learning how to draw skinny eyebrows. Don’t be afraid to draw some higher arches for your eyebrows. These can add drama and length to your otherwise shorter face. If you think your face is on the longer side, then dial down on those arches. 

How to draw skinny eyebrows:

Step 1 – Using a full coverage concealer such as the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer (available on Maybelline Official Store), conceal your brow hair to create skinny brows. We suggest going for slightly arched skinny brows and avoiding skinny curved brows — you don’t want to risk looking like Drew Barrymore from the ‘90s. 

Step 2 – The modern skinny brows focus more on texture than creating a clean brow shape. Hence, use an eyebrow liquid pen like the EXCEL Long Lasting Eyebrow (available on Excelmake SG Official Store) to draw realistic brow hairs. Make sure to fill in your brows in the direction of hair growth for a more natural effect. 

Pro tip: If you’re drawing skinny brows, use an eyebrow liquid pen that’s one shade darker than your hair colour. This helps to create more prominent brows that frame your face better. 

  • Perfect eyebrow style for diamond-shaped faces: Curved brows

Those cheekbones might be wider and more defined as compared to your forehead and chin, but you have one of the rarest face shapes soown it, girl! Soften up those angles by giving yourself rounder brows which are incredibly easy to master!

How to draw curved eyebrows:

Step 1 – Map your brows as if you’re creating an arched brow. Then, erase the sharp arch at the top of the brow on point two and replace it with a gentle curve. Repeat this at the base of your brows.

Pro tip: If you find it hard to draw a proper curve, use the edge of a spoon to guide you! 

Step 2 – With the Colorkey Eyebrow Makeup Pen (available on Colorkey Official Store), fill in your brows evenly. Those with a longer heart-shaped face can extend the tail of the brows to widen up the face shape. 

Step 3 – Clean up your brow shape by tracing along your brows with a concealer and voila
