Essential Guidelines and Tips to Get Perfect Looking Eyebrows
Every woman loves beautiful natural looking eyebrows but to get them you need to maintain them as well. Follow these tips for gorgeous eyebrows without the pocket pinch of having to visit an expensive beauty salon.
1 How to get thick eyebrows
If your eyebrows aren’t thick enough, you can always try remedies to help them grow. At bedtime, massage them for 3-5 minutes with castor oil, olive oil or almond oil. This will help them grow faster. Maintain a healthy nutritious diet essential for hair growth. Eat plenty of fish like salmon, nuts raisins and soy products to stimulate and strengthen your hair follicles.
2 How to find the perfect eyebrow shape to match your face shape
For a round face, create a high arch. The brow shape should follow a straight line to the peak of the brow. Avoid round brow shapes as it may make your face also look very round. If your face is square, then go for a curved brow, soft, or hard angled shape. Avoid thin and short brow shapes. Those with a heart shaped face should keep a low arch and rounded brow shape for a natural look. Avoid a high arch as it can make a shorter heart shape face appear longer.
If your face is oval in shape, go for a flat, soft-angled eyebrow shape. Go straight up, and then gently make a curve around at the top.
3 Identifying the three points when shaping your eyebrow
To identify the three points for shaping your eyebrow, use the pencil method. A pencil should be placed in a straight line alongside your nose. This will be the beginning inside of the brow. The next thing to do is to place the pencil along your nose and across your pupil. This is the arch and highest point of your brow. Next move the pencil so the end of the nostril and outer edge of your eye are in a line which marks the end of the brow.
4 How to pluck the perfect eyebrows
Always pluck your brows under good lighting and make sure you use a high-quality pair of tweezers. Rub an ice cube over your brows after plucking to reduce pain, redness and swelling. You can also apply some moisturizer. When plucking the area above the brow, be extra careful to avoid over plucking and making your eyebrow appear too thin. Always judge your looks from a distance to evaluate the result.
When combing your eyebrows, use a special brush and trim the hairs that stick out above the brow line. For this use nail scissors or eyebrow scissors.
5 How to fill in eyebrows
The most difficult part is filling in eyebrows to make them look thicker and natural; for brows lighter than hair color, use a special eyebrow dye. The color of your eyebrows should be close to the color tone of your hair in order to appear natural.
To fill in eyebrows, use a pencil, eyebrow powder or shadow. A pencil creates a more natural look by concealing sparseness. Brow powder can help your eyebrows look thicker. Your brow mascara is a must have especially if you have over thick eyebrows.
6 Guidelines while filling in your eyebrows
- An eyebrow brush can be used to lightly brush brow hairs. First, line the bottom of the curve and then fill in hairless spots.
- You can make the tail of your brow if necessary. Outline the top and bottom edges of your brow. Maintain the margins of your natural brow shape and avoid adding too much color especially near the bridge of your nose.
- To get a more well-defined eye brow shape, highlight the skin between the eyebrow and the eyelid. First, apply a few drops of concealed and blend this thoroughly, then apply highlighter under the eyebrow.
