Eyebrows are funny. Depending on how you shape them it can alter the entire appearance of your face. They can make your eyes look too far apart, or too close together. They can make you look like you are surprised, angry, or sad. That is why it is very important to have well groomed eyebrows. Here are five easy tips for getting perfect eyebrows:
1) Begin with a clean face.
Any makeup can make it difficult to see hair. Removing even the tiniest hairs can make a huge difference in the shape. Using a makeup remover and toner is best to ensure the complete removal of makeup.
2) Brush the eyebrow hair upward.
By doing this it helps to see the natural shape of your eyebrow line. Remove any strays that do not go along with the natural shape of your eyebrow. If you can’t see what your natural shape is, using a stencil can help. You can also use a white eyeliner pencil and draw out where you want it to be. Then tweeze (or whatever method of hair removal you desire) the hair underneath.
3) Measure where you will remove the hair.
To measure where you will remove the hair, use your tweezers or something with a straight edge and align it by the side of your nose. That is the distance of how far apart your eyebrows should be. Then take your straight edge and align at an angle by the side of your nose and the outer corner of you eye. This is where your eyebrow should end. Also clean up any strays on the top of your brows. Be careful when doing this so you don’t go too thin. Natural eyebrows are in right now, and will always look the best on your face.
4) Trim it up!
Trimming eyebrow hair is tricky. If done wrong this could leave a bald patch so be careful. Brush the eyebrows downward, any hair that is hanging over the eyebrow line underneath should be trimmed. Always do a little at a time. Then brush the hair upwards and do the same thing. Any hair that goes past the eyebrow shape should be trimmed.
5) Fill them in.
Even if you have dense eyebrows, filling them in will always give them an extra polished look. If you have dark hair, use a shade that is 2-3 times lighter than your hair. If you have light hair then use a shade that is 2-3 times darker. A powder formula is the most natural looking to fill in. Using a dense angle brush begin filling in at the ends of the eyebrows, working your way in.
