The key to perfect arches? Work with your existing eyebrow shape and frame—not against it.

Stand two to three feet away from a mirror and study your brows' natural shape.

According to makeup artist Susmta Patel of Studio Sush, recognizing your eye set will help as a starting point for your ideal eyebrow shape. Find your eye set by measuring your eye from the inner to outer corner. If your measurement is 7 cm and the distance between your two eyes is also the same, this means you have normal set eyes. If it is more, then you have wide set eyes and if it is less, you have close set eyes.

If you have close set eyes, you'll require more space between your eyebrows: The brows should begin a little past the inner eye to give the illusion of a normal eye set. If you have wide set eyes, then you should not overpluck between brows, as less space will better suit your face.
