A flawless face is more than just foundation and lipstick. Gorgeous brows play a major role in the flattering your facial features. Luckily for beauty lovers, a trip to the salon is so unnecessary to get killer brows on a budget.
The first step toward gorgeous eyebrows is to determine the best shape to flatter your face. Gals with small eyes benefit from a thicker brown that builds up just a bit at the top while deep-set eyes are better proportioned with enlarged space between the eyes and brows. Those with close-set peepers will look fab when the space between brows is widened and the length is extended with an eyebrow pencil.
Tweezing is a great way to groom brows, but we’d be lying if we didn’t mention it hurts like hell. Lessen the discomfort of tweezing by wiping your brow area with an astringent-soaked cotton ball that can serve as a numbing agent.
Shape is extremely important when it comes to brows. Take a lip liner and hold it vertically in line with the side of your nose. This is where brows should begin. Find the end of your brow by using the same lip pencil and positioning it diagonally across opposite corners of the eye, nose and mouth. Tweeze hairs outside of this point.
For best results, brush eyebrows up and snip the longer hairs beyond your natural arch using tiny nail scissors. Next, brush the brows down and trim anything below the brow line in a similar fashion. To get a natural look, brush brows brow powder in upward and outward strokes. Using brown eyeshadow or powder provides a more natural look than that of pencil.
