Is Eyebrow shaping, a skill you never learned?
Some girls, are simply hacking off, whatever they see,
hoping the salon could fix it on the months that a visit could be afford.
This is a stepped guide, in order to teach you how to shape your eyebrows with professional shaping
and shading techniques.
Tools You Need
•A pair of tweezers
•A brow brush
•There are so many brow techniques out there now. How do you know what will work best?
PRO’s prefer tweezing eyebrows. They find eyebrow wax is a little harder to manage, especially when you’re doing it yourself at home. With threading, you might see one or two really amazing jobs, but it’s so easy to get the “Golden Arches” look, this very round shape that can leave you looking like Kelly Rowland. Think of tweezing as … weeding a garden, whereas waxing or threading are more like mowing the lawn.
•The question is: “Tweezing your eyebrows at home how can you make sure to get that arched shape?”
What you want to do is start tweezing is to use the brow closest to the inner corner as your guide and tweeze below the brow from thick to thin. You want to start the arch right over the brow bone. A lot of people start to arch over the pupil, but that can give you a cuckoo surprised look. If you arch over the brow bone you’ll get that relaxed countenance. A little brow gel can keep them in place and looking nice and neat. If you need to, you can trim any rogue brows with a brow scissors, but make sure not to cut them too short!
•Start shaping your eyebrows while growing them out at the same time.
We see a lot of bad brow jobs and you really just have to go cold turkey and assess the situation. You can draw in the shape of the eyebrow and pluck what’s left, but it could take up to a year to grow back.
•Some girls think that when shaping their eyebrows, it is important to fill them in with an eyebrow pencil or shadow.
Actually, you don’t have to fill them in. You can fill in eyebrows for definition or drama in the evening, but it’s not necessary all the time. If you’re going to fill them in, prefer to do it with an eyebrow pencil because the powders can end up looking artificial.
•Once you’ve shaped your eyebrows, you need to maintain that shape.
We see a lot of models now with these thick, full brows. The Fuller Brows Are In Fashion Now, so you really just have to do a little clean up every once in a while to keep that soft sweep. Visit a PRO once or twice a year to get back on track, and then maintain them at home.
•It is very important that when you are going into a salon to get your eyebrows waxed or tweezed, to know what to tell your stylist, so you don’t walk out of there with one of those nightmare eyebrow stories.
Make sure they’re not waxing or tweezing on top of the brow. You need that for a little lift.
Otherwise you’re going to end up with straight lines of brows that make you look angry all the time.
Most of all just remember that not everyone is focused on your eyebrows the way you are.
If you mess up, get an eyebrow pencil, put on some sunglasses and move on with life.
