TikTok filters typically go one of two ways; making you look like a different person or improving your makeup routine for the better. Today, we’re focusing on the latter, particularly with TikTok’s eyebrow filter, which helps you to map the perfect placement of your eyebrows, based on your features.
Perfecting your arches is no easy task, especially when it comes to achieving total symmetry. In most cases, your eyebrows tend to end up as sisters, not twins. While practice does make perfect, we understand that so do the right products. Ahead, learn how to map perfect eyebrows with the help of TikTok’s eyebrow filter and the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Volumizing 24H Wear Brow Mascara.
What Is Eyebrow Mapping?
Eyebrow mapping is a technique that helps you pinpoint the ideal eyebrow shape for your face shape and features. There are a couple of different ways to try eyebrow mapping. One is by making an appointment with a professional, who will use thread and a colored chalk pencil to map out your ideal eyebrow shape. Another is with the help of a brow stencil or filter that fits to your nose shape and determines your best eyebrow shape from there. TikTok’s eyebrow filter is a great example of this: It gives placement or mapping for where the eyebrows should start, where the arch should form and where the tail should end with lines as markers.
How Do I Make My Eyebrows Look Perfect?
Here’s how to get selfie-worthy arches using TikTok’s eyebrow mapping filter and L’Oréal Paris brow products.
Step 1. Open TikTok and Locate the Eyebrow Filter
Head to TikTok and search ‘eyebrow filter’ in the search bar. Click on a video with the filter and you should see the name of it above the user’s name. Click it and it’ll take you to a new video where you can see the eyebrow mapping on your face.
Step 2. Map Your Eyebrows
Using your phone as a mirror, take an eyebrow pencil like the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Mechanical Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil (that matches your brows) and map where your brows should begin, arch and end according to the placement of the lines on the filter. These are called markers and they help to provide the layout for your brows. The choice is completely up to you, but it may be worthwhile to pluck a few brow hairs to get the most flattering shape for your features.
Step 3. Fill In Your Brows
Once you have your markers down, use the eyebrow pencil to fill in your brows in the areas that need shaping. This means extending the tail of your brows or filling in the area where they begin in order to boost thickness.
Step 4. Coat Your Brow With Infallible Mascara
Once you’ve shaped your arches with the brow pencil and spoolie, use a brow mascara, like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Volumizing 24H Wear Brow Mascara, to brush the hairs into place and thicken them. This brow mascara’s transfer and smudge-resistant formula keeps your brows looking full and thick for up to 24 hours, plus it comes in seven shades to suit a variety of hair colors. It has a fiber-infused formula that volumizes brows with a natural-looking fullness and it's even ophthalmologist and allergy tested.
