How to Trim Eyebrows in Photoshop

This tutorial is about the trimming of eyebrows using Photoshop. I will use lasso-tool – for selection and feather – to smooth the selection. Afterwards I will place this selection according to the size of the brows a face demands. The image will be ready then. Let’s start!

STEPS

1. Open the selected image in Photoshop. Go to File >> Open
