How To Have The Perfect Eyebrows

Eyebrows are the frame of the face and yet they too often go untouched. A properly shaped brow makes eyes look bigger and cheekbones appear higher. It gives the face strength and exprression.Here is everything you need to know for beating your brows into submission.

Tweezer

Choose The Right Tweezer

  • Thin Tip - Good for grasping small, fine hairs, and plucking ingrown hair.
  • Slanted Tip - Gives maximum control.
  • Square Tip - Best used for removing coarse hairs or several hairs at a time.

The Basic Steps

  • Tweeze immediately after showering or apply a hot washcloth to loosen hair follicles.
  • Hold a pencil vertically along the side of the nose. Eyebrow should start at outside edge if pencil. Leaving a bit more space will widen close-set eyes.
  • Hold pencil to outside of eye. This is where the eyebrow should end.
  • Smooth brows with a little moisturizer to help hairs slide out.
  • Brush brows up to find a natural arch.
  • Draw in the desired shape beforehand with a soft eye shadow pencil. Don't use an eyeliner pencil. It will cause you to pluck too much.
  • Tweeze under the brow first, plucking in the direction of the growth.
  • Using an eyelash comb, comb brows upwards and trim any hairs that extend beyond the natural top or brow bone.
  • After tweezing, soothe the area with cool, wet tea bags.
Important Tips To Keep In Mind

Important Tips To Keep In Mind

Your eyebrows add strength and definition to your face. Well groomed eyebrows enhance your beauty. You should pluck eyebrows before bedtime so any redness will disappear overnight. In shaping your eyebrows use your facial features.

Use a pair of slant edge tweezers which grip hairs easily. Comb hairs one way and then the other to remove loose hairs. You should pluck hairs between the brows and any stragglers. Never remove the hairs from above your eyebrows. Pluck each hair individually close to the root. Work in the direction of the growth. Always avoid over plucking.

In defining your eyebrows choose a shade similar to your natural hair colour. When using a pencil you should apply in small, feathered strokes. Starting at the inner corner work outwards. Blend the colour with a brush. To tame stray hairs just use hair gel and comb through to neaten.

How To Fill In Your Eyebrows

  • Choose a pencil and powder in the correct shade. Women with fair complexions should use a blonde shade, those with olive tones should go tawny or brown, and those with with African-American skin should use gray.
  • Brush brows downward with a dry, mascara-like wand. To define the arch, use the pencil to draw a line along the upper edge of the brow. Comb the brows upward and outward.
  • For added fullness, dust eye shadow into the hairs of the brow with a stiff, slanted brush. Dip the brush into a tiny amount of powder and use short, gentle strokes while applying.
  • If brows have been severely overtweezed, brush the hairs in the direction of the growth, and fill in any visible patches with powder. Avoid adding to the top or bottom of the brows.
  • Comb a clear brow gel up through the brows to set hairs in place.
