Grooming and shaping your eyebrows can be a struggle. Even if you’ve become proficient in contouring or have mastered the dark magic of making your winged eyeliner symmetrical, your brows may still be an enigma. But don’t feel bad it’s just one of those things.
Because of the hustle that comes with this, some women have eventually turned to microblading — a type of semipermanent tattoos used to create fuller-looking brows. While this can be a great way to achieve near-perfect eyebrows, it can be expensive and, yes, painful.
If you are one of those people who still do their eyebrows, here are some of the tips that you can use to avoid messing up your brows.
Filling in from the beginning to the end
This is the most normal thing to do however, experts advise that always start filling from where the eyebrow hair is thick, which is the midsection of the brow.
After filling in the middle, you should work lightly toward the tail. This doesn’t mean you totally neglect where your brow begins. Once you’re done filling in the middle and the tail, go back to the start of your brow, add a few, fine flicks, so the inner corner is lighter and more natural-looking than the outer one.
Doing your brow first
If you thought that the order in which you did your makeup didn’t matter well, I’m sorry to disappoint you but it does. Your eyebrows should be left toward the end of your regimen.
If you start with foundation and concealer, move on to bronzer, then blush, and then your eyebrows, you’ll better be able to create a cohesive and balanced look.
After you do your brows, you can then start on your eye makeup, lip colour, and anything else you care to add.
Not considering your face shape
When doing your eyebrows, your face shape matters just like when getting a hair cut. You face shape determines the shaping that you get.
For those with round faces, sharp-angled brows will be just perfect. If you have a heart-shaped face, you’ll want to avoid “heavy shaping” and instead just clean up your natural brows.
If you have a long face, you can experiment with either a high or low arch, but you’ll want to make sure your brows extend far enough horizontally to add balance. If you have a square-shaped face going thick with a nice, strong arch will be nice. Last but not least, those with oval faces, you’re in luck. Thick, thin, dark, light, there are no hard and fast rules for oval faces.
Over-plucking your brows
In the quest to have well-shaped eyebrow, most people find themselves over plucking the brows, this happens every once in a while and it’s okay. But if you keep up this habit, you’re never going to get the brows you really want. If you find yourself routinely over-plucking your eyebrows, then its time that you let somebody else do it for you
