How to Get the Perfect Eyebrows
December 27, 2011 2 Comments
Your eyebrows make your face. When they look good, you look good. When they’re too thin, uneven or lopsided you can look like a like a Picasso masterpiece to say the least. Then there’s the issue of over plucking. You always have to think about whether or not the hairs will grow back if they’ve been accidentally removed one time too many and how will it affect your look. Here are some tips on tweezing your eyebrows that are sure to save you some time and frustration.
Start by throwing out those old rusty tweezers and invest in a good pair that are sturdy and are able to get a good grip. While it’s ok to save money on some things, there are other things that are worth the extra couple of bucks and will save you money down the road because of the quality you’ve invested in.
Now head over to a well-lit mirror and take a good look at yourself. Are you happy with your brows? Is there something that you want to change about them? Perhaps fill in the lighter areas or even them out. If there is something that you need to do to make them look better this is the time to take note of it.
Ready? Get some clear mascara or hair wax and apply it to the brow area. This will help to hold the hairs in place so that you can see which hairs are working and which ones have to go.
Using a slanted tweezers, start removing all of the stray hair that are above, below and to the sides of your brows. Be sure to take your time with this so that you don’t overdo it.
Using an eyebrow comb or an unused toothbrush, brush your brow hairs upwards and use a small; scissor to trim the hairs that are too long. Then brush your brows downwards and trim them again.
Go back and make sure that you got all of the strays.
Now look at your brow shape to make sure that they are both even. If one is longer than the other or your arches are uneven, slowly and carefully remove one hair at a time until they are symmetrical. Keep in mind that your inner brow should line up with your inner cornea. Don’t take off too many hairs or your brows will look unnatural.
Remove the clear mascara or the hair wax.
If you feel that you need to fill in your brows to make them appear fuller you can use a pencil to do the job. Make sure to match your hair color or use a shade lighter for a more natural look.
Give your brows a quick brush over and you’re all done.
Many women try to tweeze two or three hairs at a time in order to save time but this can be both painful and damaging to the look of your brows if done incorrectly. Finally, you may be tempted to change that shape of your brows but more often than not you’ll find that this is a bad idea. Not only is it difficult to maintain, it’s also a way to restructure of your face which you may end up disliking. Good luck and stay beautiful.
