Quick and Easy Tips To Do-It-Yourself Perfect Brows
Avoid tweezing in between appointments to maintain the best long-term shape.
Use high-quality tweezers.
Only pluck in the direction of your brow hairs. This makes it easier to remove and reduces damage to your hair follicles.
Only pluck underneath the brow never on top
Always ensure that the brows start right next to the nose and ensure brows are thickest in this region.
Create a gentle and gradual arch. The arch should be in line with your pupil.
The tail of your brow is the thinnest part of your brow and should start in line with the outer edge of your iris.
Brow makeup is an art and it takes time to perfect this skill. Depending on your skill level brow pencils might not necessarily be your best choice for filling in sparse areas. Try using brow powders if you have enough hair to hold the product.
Using a brow pencil to fill in your brows before you pluck.
Use a slightly lighter shade to fill the brows in for a softer look. Try using a shade that is one or two shades lighter than your natural hair colour.
Be gentle with the use of brow pencils and crayons. Using soft hair-like strokes mimics the natural look of your brow and the reduced pressure helps prevent future hair loss.
Avoid trimming your brows as it creates a blunt finish and can cause sparse spots.
Eyebrows are sisters, not twins! They should have the same shape and form, but not look completely identical.
Use a clear brow gel to help tame down any longer hairs, it will also help your brow products last throughout the day.
Step away from the magnifying mirror. It’s easy to lose perspective on how many brow hairs you’ve removed if you’re focusing too close to the mirror. Pull your arm back and look at the mirror from a distance to get the big picture view.
