    Choose a suitable eyebrow shape for your face

    First you should decide how you want to shape your eyebrows.
    Step one

    1. Gently curved brows are perfect for heart-shaped faces, where your chin represents the tip of the heart at the bottom and your brows the curved rims at the top.

    2. An oval face profits from dense, defined eyebrows that make your eyes the centre of attention.

    3. If you have a round face, wide, curved brows with a high arch can make it seem longer.

    4. To make a long face look shorter, flat, horizontal brow lines are ideal. They are also suitable for square faces.
    5. If you want to balance prominent facial features, try using slightly curved eyebrows that make your face appear softer.

    Trim your hair length


    First, comb your hair against the hair growth and then trim only the longest hairs – one hair after the other. The perfect tool for this is the pen trimmer. This practical eyebrow trimmer has a comb attachment that allows you to evenly trim your hair either to two or four millimetre length.

    Shape your brows with an eyebrow trimmer


    The pen trimmer is also perfect for shaping your brows. It can be used quickly and easily to shape your eyebrows even on the go – because it is battery-operated and fits perfectly into your purse. And best of all: if you buy the Lumea IPL hair removal system BRI921 or BRI923, you get the pen trimmer for free.

    Shape your eyebrows by waxing or plucking - for long lasting results


    Now you are ready to shape your eyebrows. To round off curved eyebrows or to transform them into flat brows, you can wax the edges of your eyebrows. Before you start, remember that waxing means that the hairs will be removed with their roots. That‘s why it will take two to three weeks for new hair to grow. Shaving your eyebrows is a more gentle alternative thanks to the pen trimmer.


    If you want to define the shape of your brows in more detail, you can pluck your eyebrows to remove single hairs from your eyebrows. The precision pincers that come with the pen trimmer enable you to shape the edges of your eyebrows in a targeted way. A good tip is to first trace your desired shape with an eyebrow pencil so you don’t remove too many hairs. Perfect eyebrows have never been this simple!

    The finishing touches


    Don‘t forget to reward your eyebrows after shaving, waxing or plucking with a cooling gel. It calms the skin and closes the pores.


    If you need a bit more practice or prefer bushier brows, use a brow pencil. It is available in many hair colours and imitates hairs where they are missing. Trace a few natural looking hairs. Afterwards you can use a transparent brow gel to comb your perfect eyebrows smoothly.
