Another makeup trend makes a buzz on social media just when you think you’ve seen it all. Enter brightly-colored eyebrows.
We can guess this trend sparked when a makeup artist went viral on Twitter when she matched her colorful eyelashes to her brightly colored lipsticks. Jennifer Lopez took it further with her matching lavender eye makeup and nail polish. And it seems people can’t get enough, so eyebrows became a part of this matching makeup game. Makeup artists and Instagram users aren’t running out of inventive ways to paint their brows with bright shades, matching their makeup.
If you want something new and fun to try for your glam look, then here’s how you can match your eyebrows to your eye makeup.
Here are the easy steps to creating colorful eyebrows:
And now you have your brightly colored brows that match your eye look! If you’re not yet sure how to shape your eyebrows, head to the next section for your Brow Guide.
Doing your brows can spell disaster—overplucking them is one thing, so here are tips and tricks to avoid it from happening.
The golden rule for the perfect brows for your face shape is: to go for an eyebrow shape opposite your face shape. So, for example, if you got softer facial features, go for more angular brows. Or, if your facial features look more prominent and angular, go for more rounded brows, so your face looks softer.
If you got an oval-shaped face, then it’s very symmetrical. So there’s no need to play around with brow shapes to manipulate your face shapes. Instead, you may stick to natural, soft-angle brows.
A round face has its length and width roughly the same. So fuller with sharp, angled brows can add structure and length to a round face.
Those with heart-shaped faces got wider foreheads and pointed chins, so the goal is to make the forehead smaller and the chin softer. A soft arch and slightly thicker eyebrows can best suit heart-shaped faces.
A square face has a more angular jawline, and the height and width of the face are roughly the same. So avoid sharp and angled brows. Instead, lift your brows with soft arches and finish with a lengthened tail to balance the features.
Brow mapping is also a great technique to find your ideal brow shape. Here’s how you can do brow mapping:
1) Take your brow pencil, place it on the side of your nose and hold it up to the inner corner of your eye. Where the pencil edge hits your brow line, that’s the beginning of your brow.
2) Next, put your pencil on the side of your nose, but turn it slightly diagonally so it’s in line with your pupil. The point where it hits your brow bone is where your arch should be.
3) Last, place your pencil on the edge of your nose and align it with the outer corner of your eye. That’s the end of your eyebrow.
There are different brow-grooming products and tools you need for perfect brows. Of course, your brow products depend on your personal needs. But some popular ones include brow pencils, brow gels, and pomade—all of these can help you achieve fuller, thicker eyebrows.
If you’ve got sparse or thinning brows and need a long-term solution, eyebrow growth serum can help. They contain ingredients that nourish and stimulate follicles to make your eyebrows thicker and fuller.
