Beautiful Brows

25 Aug

Your eyebrows frame your face, adding strength and definition.

Well groomed eyebrows enhance your beauty. You should pluck eyebrows before bedtime so any redness will disappear overnight. When shaping your eyebrows, the arch should line up with the outside of your iris.

Draw an imaginary line from the outside of your nose upwards to determine the inside of the brow and another line diagonal from the outside of your nose towards your temple to determine the end of the brow.

Use a white eye pencil to mark these with guidelines if desired.

Brush hairs in both directions to remove any loose hairs; then brush up the hairs to keep and downward on the ones you wish to remove. Use a pair of slant edge tweezers which grip hairs easily.

Pluck any hairs between the brows and any stragglers. Do not remove the hairs from above your eyebrows.

Pluck each hair individually close to the root, working in the direction of the growth. Always avoid over plucking. Less is more and a few hairs can make a huge difference.

To define your eyebrows choose a shade similar to your natural hair color. Use brow powder or a pencil that is a shade similar to your natural hair color to define the brows.

When using a pencil you should apply in small, feathered strokes. Starting at the inner corner work outwards. Blend the color with a brush.

To tame stray hairs just use hair gel or hair spray and comb through to neaten.

Keep in mind, your brows are sisters and not twins!
