    Hopefully a simple question, one I’m sure has been asked before many times, but here’s a chance to survey everyone once again.

    So, what do you do to shape your eyebrows? If you do, what’s your favorite method? If you use multiple ways, please feel free to expand upon that in the comments below. And if you’d like to share what you do to them with makeup, that would be even better! Do you prefer thicker or thinner brows?

    Thanks!

    I am an eyebrow watcher, I watch and wonder how bad some womens eyebrows are. Monobrows’ I’m surprised brows, drawn on with a thin pencil brows and worse of all the middle of the forehead brows. My brows are a very light colour and don’t take a lot of maintenance so I pluck the strays and use a thin comb and a ear & nose trimmer. I do them all at the same time……efficient eh….Sally xx

    I don’t have any eyebrows to speak of, my stylist told me to use an eyebrow pencil to fill them and make them look larger, if they made fake eyebrows I’d buy some.

    Waxed, every month or two. Just when ever they need a little love.

    I go to Ulta near me and get them done by Natalie and she has been doing them for 2 1/2 years and does not exaggerate the brow too much. I first got them done in male mode and enjoyed it so much I now make an occasion of it by dressing up

    I use stencils I found at target. I put the stencil over my eyebrow, and fill it in with eyebrow powder. Then use an eyebrow razor to clean away the parts that aren’t filled in.

    Well I’m really crap at drawing eyebrows but I keep on practicing and I guess that is the solution for many of us ladies. Trial and error. I use a brown pencil to start and a darkish powder to go over the line afterwards. Unfortunately my natural brows are so thin and feint you can’t see them any way so I just shave them off and try to create something from nothing. I am considering sending off for one of those template thingies but I’m not sure if they will be of any use. Any of you girls tried them? Did you have any luck?

    I used to tweeze them years ago. Over time they became thinner and thinner. I was tweezing the grey ones out until there were bald spots starting. Then I had to pencil in the bald spots I was making. I also cut them feminine short with scissors and a comb. Finally I said screw this and now I shave them off and pencil them in thin like back in the 1930’s or 40’s. Like Claudette Colbert.

      Rather extreme,

      Since my SOGGF outed me about 4 years ago I ve let my hair grow longer and my stylist same as hers always checks my eyebrows and either trims them and shapes them, several times she has actually waxed them.

      Matter of fact this next Thursday I m getting my hairstyled and colored. Just now SOGGF said Tammie get your brows waxed and colored also, they are getting rather bushy and unfeminine.

    Hi Stacy, i do my own using seven point eyebrow mapping, it can be hard to do if you have not done this before but its great for getting a near perfect symmetrical profile on your brows. There are videos on youtube explaining how to do this, have a look! its fascinating 🙂

    I trim the length of em pretty aggressively, and pluck the stupid stragglers…I’d like them thinner towards the inner part especially on the lower aspect, but I’m working towards that gradually.

    makeup…I draw a straight line from the inner part to where the bend is, trace over it 3-4 times, then draw the downward line at like a 30-35 degree angle. Then I use the brush side of the eyebrow pencil over it a time or two. Works ok, not quite done evolving that particular technique yet tho…

    I use a hand razor to be smooth all over, BUT I have a lovely beauty therapist who waxes my back, shoulders, ears and eyebrows. She scissor  trims, plucks the odd one the wax doesn’t deal with and generally makes me feel wonderful with a Manuka oil soothing finish. To me, the money spent is well worth it. I leave floating on air.

    I have a full body wax every month which includes my eyebrows.

    Between waxing, I keep them shaped and tidy by tweezing.

    I shave my eyebrows and use an eyebrow pencil and gel. To finish I use a light dusting of

    face powder to set and lighten them.

      This is also my method, though my stylist shapes them by shaving. I like a very thin, long brow which is easy for me to draw by just following the real brow. I am also intrigued by the fact that nobody remarks on a shaped brow when I am in drab.

    I currently just trim my brows short with a comb and sissors. I have not started plucking, shaping, contouring and coloring or for that matter started into makeup other than lipstick.

    I have them trimmed when I have my hair cut and do that myself in between cuts. I fine tune with an electric brow trimmer.

    I use scissors and a comb to trim my brows.  And every so often, I get my brows waxed to a unisex shape.  Have thought about threading, have any of you girls done it?  If so, what’s it like?

    As well as making sure I have them trimmed every time I have a haircut, in bygone days I used to use paper glue and heavy foundation to cover my brows completely, then draw in the eyelashes with eyeliner.

    This ended up with me permanently removing quite a few. This, plus old age and greying of same, means it does not take much for me to achieve a feminine looking brow…..(LOL)

    I have several plastic templates of eye brow designs. I maintain daily using a Phillips battery operated electric eye brow trimmer as well ans another style of battery power shaper that is a rotary type.

    Hi Stacy

    I’m a closeted crossdresser so I can not get a permanent change (waxed, plucking, etc.) so I try to getting a better eyebrows shape with make up (concealer and foundation) and a pencil to draw it.

    Hugs,

    Scissors- small pointy ones, and a female razor.   I have bought an eyebrow stencil set and eyebrow kit consisting of wax and medium brown powder, but I haven’t tried them yet.   Trimmed,  arched, elongated and coloured eyebrows are one of the most important things to achieve the female look,  followed by false lashes, and a good lipstick.

    Great question! Lots of variety in the answers. I carefully shave them, then tweeze the stray hairs to keep them shaped, been doing it for years. As was noted, small changes over a period of time go unnoticed by others. Scissors to keep them trimmed to a decent length, then color and shape with an eyebrow pencil. Eyebrow trimming/shaping is now a fairly acceptable part of manscaping, so don’t be scared to give it a try!

    My hairstylist checks them every time I get my hair styled.

    • Trims them up Feminine if needed
    • Or has a Co-worker that specializes in waxing eyebrows, legs, arms, etc.  Who Waxes them.. while my hair color is setting up b4 my hair is shampooed
    • If my stylist thinks that my eyebrows need color also then waxing coworkers waxes after my shampoo but b4 hair is styled.

    I sometimes very lightly trim mine but my asset is I’m very blonde with super light colored and not thick brows. I normally wear a brown wig and use a brown brow pencil to shade the shape I like. My normal wig does block a lot of the view but they are still visible.  With a different wig I will shape my brows a little more then normal using a small hair trimmer I have.

    A long time ago another Tgirl gave me this bit of advice. She told me to start taking a few hairs from the under side of my brows each week. Once they were gone, I kept them from coming back. Over a period of a few months, I was able to thin my brows without anyone noticing a drastic change. When I did my make up I would use a pencil and some eyebrow powder to get them just right. I’ve been doing this for a very long time and nobody has said anything about my eyebrows when I’m in drab, but I get lots of compliments when I am in girl mode!

    I use a combination of things:  a trimmer to keep them very short (they tend to grow “bushy”), a tweezer for shaping, and a brush or pencil to shape/emphasize them.

    I have always thought that the shaping of Eyebrows is very important,  sexy item of the  ” Make up ” process. I think many folks don’t spend enough attention to them. I think a man is fearful to too feminize his face.  The eyebrows are one of these facial features that can be an alert to attempt to have the face ready to crossdress.

    I trim with a small scissors and pluck to get a good  Arching eyebrow. I use a Mary  Kaye eyebrow color stick. I get compliments all. The time. I am very pleased with the expression the eyebrows express.
