Your eyebrows are one of the most defining features on your face. They control your expressions, give you a sense of allure, and contribute greatly to your overall appearance. Many girls over pluck their eyebrows but the days of skinny eyebrows are gone for good. Right now, it’s all about thick, defined, and dark eyebrows. You don’t have to look any further than Cara Delvigne for proof! Did you know that shaping your eyebrows doesn’t have to painless at all! Contrary to popular belief, waxing and plucking aren’t the only ways to shape your eyebrows. If you’re one of those girls who has super thin eyebrows, or if you have normal eyebrows and want to give them more definition then make sure you check out these tips!
Before you begin actually shaping your eyebrows, take a small comb designed for eyebrows and brush them upwards. You can usually find these combs on the ends of most eyeliners but if you don’t have one around you can always use your finger to brush the hairs upward. Once they have been brushed it’s time to begin filling them in.
Buy a brow pencil that matches the color of your natural eyebrows. Use the pencil to fill in your brows. You can tell where your eyebrows should start by holding a pencil straight up on the side of your nose vertically. Where the pencil touches is where your eyebrows should begin. Hold the pencil diagonally from your nose to find out where they should end. Remember now is the time to be dramatic with your eyebrows so don’t be afraid to fill in a little bit more than you normally would and try to place the most emphasis on the arch of the eyebrow. But don’t forget to blend your lines! You want the color of your pencil to blend in with your natural brows so that it doesn’t look unnatural.
After filling them you’ll feel a load of difference not just in the shape of your brows but in how they make you look overall. Remember that thicker brows always give the impression of a younger, fresher face and thinner eyebrows make you appear harsher. Like any other type of makeup, filling in your eyebrows will take some practice. Try it out a few times and you will be sure to find a shape and thickness that makes you look and feel best!
