Have you ever wondered why you aren’t able to get the look you want on your face even after being very careful with your makeup application? It is probably because you haven’t done your eyebrows right! If you thought that your eyebrows are too small to make a difference to your appearance, you are mistaken! More often than not, a poorly done eyebrow can spoil your look even if you have done all the things the right way.
Here are some tips that you can follow to groom and fill in your eyebrows the right way:
Plucking your brows correctly
Plucking is an important part of grooming your eyebrows. Though the task may look very simple when you get it done in a parlour, it can pose a few challenges for you when you decide to pluck your eyebrows at home. Use a good quality tool for this purpose.
Always ensure that you get enough natural light when you pluck your eyebrows so that you have a clear idea of how much you have plucked and how much of hair remains on your brow. Don’t use a magnifying glass or stand very close to the mirror while plucking your brows. This can help you reduce over-plucking or under-plucking issues.
Eyebrow henna application
When you have a very light eyebrow, you can use henna to highlight them properly. The rich, brown shade of the henna not only makes your brows look bright but also highlights the beauty of your eyes. Before you apply an eyebrow henna tint, you have to do a patchtest on your arm to ensure that you are not allergic to the product. The henna tints remain on your brows for anywhere between 5 and 25 days, depends on your exposure to water, sunlight and chemical products.
Perfect trimming of eyebrows
You may use any kind of brow highlighter or brow-make up product, but unless your brows are trimmed properly, they won’t look good. More often than not, you may trim more at the edges than necessary, when you aren’t qualified for the job. However, if you still want to trim your eyebrows yourself, it is highly recommended that you use a good setting gel on your brows and brush the hairs up. Let them remain this way until they are completely dry, before you trim the edges with a pair of scissors. You can get a proper trim, this way.
Right amount of shaving at the middle of the brows
Yes, we do understand that you don’t like a unibrow and that you would want to shave off the brows at the centre area. However, it is not very easy to do so. When you shave off a wider area than what is required, you could end up widening your entire face, which is not something you would have liked to do. The trick here is to trim only up to that area where the starting of the brow is in perfect alignment with the upper part of your nose bridge.
These grooming tips may look basic; however, they create a huge impact on your brows and your overall appearance when you apply them. Follow these simple steps and flaunt your beautiful, well-groomed and shapely eyebrows to the world.
