Well-arched, groomed eyebrows play an important role in balancing features, such as the forehead, nose, eyes, and the length of the face. If you want to achieve that perfect eyebrow shape and to have a fabulous face, follow these 7 tips on how to shape your eyebrows and remember that the shape of your eyebrows can dramatically enhance your appearance.
1. Hot water
Many women claim that applying ice helps numb the skin before plucking eyebrows and makes the process less painful. In fact, ice makes your skin more firm and it increases the pain. To open up your pores and make the process a bit easier, make sure you wash your face with warm (or even hot) water. I usually pluck my eyebrows in the shower or right after the shower.
2. Magnifying mirror
I think every woman should have a magnifying mirror at home. When plucking your eyebrows, use this mirror to see hair more clearly so that you will not miss any of them. Ladies, if you really want your eyebrows to look fabulous, it’s worth buying at least one magnifying mirror.
3. Eyebrow brush
A good eyebrow brush can do wonders for your eyebrows. If you don’t have time for plucking, just smooth the hairs down with your eyebrow brush and you are ready to go. The best thing about it is that it takes a few seconds, but drastically enhances your look and makes your face look gorgeous.
4. Begin and end
To determine where your brows should start and end, take a pen, place it vertically against the edge of your nose, and mark the beginning of your brow with your liner. Find the end point by placing pen on an angle – one end should be on the bottom of the nose, and the other should be against your eye’s outer corner. After marking the spot, pluck any hair that lie outside of it.
5. Eyebrow powder
Are you happy with the fullness of your brows? No? Try filling them in. Purchase a special eyebrow powder (it must be the same shade of the brows), take a brush and outline the edges of your brows with this powder. Then, work on the inside of the eyebrow area. If you want to have longer eyebrows, extend them by using an eyebrow powder. A lot of women use an eyebrow pencil to fill their brows in, but I suggest using an eyebrow powder since I tried it and I use it regularly, and I can say it really works.
6. Make them arched
The next step to shaping your eyebrows is making them arched. Take an eyebrow pencil and draw on various styles and see what style looks best. Once you decide, pluck your brows accordingly. If you can’t decide how to shape your eyebrows, look up a few celeb photos and pick the shape of the eyebrows you like. Yes, it takes a lot of time and effort, but it will be well worth it in the end.
7. Go to the beauty salon
If you doubt or you don’t have enough time to shape your eyebrows, go to the beauty salon and get your brows done professionally. You will pay a few bucks, but it will save your time and your nerves. After all, not every woman has those eyebrow shaping abilities, so a salon is a great option.
