We have heard many times that the eye can tell a lot about a person’s feelings, but what they don’t tell you is that the shape of an eyebrow does an equally important job. If your expression is the news, the eyebrows are like a newspaper vendor, yelling “Extra extra - Read all about it!” Indeed, they are of the utmost importance. To have a better idea of how important eyebrows are, look up “famous celebrities without eyebrows”. And Yes! It sure does look a whole lot worse.
Taking care and maintaining eyebrows is one of the most important beauty tips one can perform, as it drastically changes how you look. It’s something you can’t just pass by! To help you maintain your eyebrows with or without make up, here are a few tips which you would love to know about:
Figure out the shape of your face and your eyebrow’s shape.This step needs to be worked on quite closely as your face shape will eventually decide on how to shape up your eyebrow. For example, strong jaws will call for rounded eyebrows as they will complement the overall shape. Another example is angled or ‘edgy’ eyebrows for round faces. As there is not much detail related to a round face, the eyebrows will bring out your exact features.
If you plan on using a tweezer...
...Always remember to fill in your eyebrows before you go down that lane! This way you can quickly correct any mistakes you make, like over plucking. To fill in, start from the nose bridge and follow on three quarters of the way, casually following the eye bridge.
Waxing is also a great way to shape your eyebrows. The benefit of this method is that, this way, hair doesn’t grow back as fast. This means that if you are working on a shape, it will stay that way longer. One should use this method with caution, as it does hurt!
Spoolies and other eyebrow dedicated apparatus will help you a lot because that’s their main purpose. For example, a spoolie can be used to brush your eyebrows upwards for the purpose of giving them volume. If you notice any hair that is longer than the rest when you brush them upwards, you can trim that hair by using manicure scissors. Just be sure not to overdo trimming, because any hair that you cut this way, it will grow back thicker. Tweezers are also a tool to efficiently shape eyebrows. Just be careful about being too plucky! Also be careful in general, as sometimes plucking hurts and leaves the skin around the plucked area sore.
Threading is possibly the best way to shape eyebrows efficiently. This method uses cotton threads to get rid of hair, and it does so with great precision. You can learn threading on your own from online videos. It is tough to learn but once you get the hang of it, it will be the best way to get near perfect shapes.
Set a style for yourself and own it. Shape those eyebrows for a tempting and awe inspiring look that leaves everyone absolutely flabbergasted.
