Eyebrows are the one thing you can get in shape, without exercising! And if you still don’t want to ace the perfect the brow shape, we can’t be friends!
Having said that, grooming and shaping your brows is no easy feat. While you may have mastered the art of contouring and creating even wings; making sure that your eyebrow game is on fleek all day, every day, can be a little tricky. You’ll be happy to know that to achieve flawless brows, you don’t have to necessarily rely on high-end treatments (such as, microblading).
We’ve got you covered with simple ways in which you can flaunt perfect brows or correct any brow gaffes that you could be making...
- Thin brows
- Going too dark
- Using a magnifying mirror
- Too much highlighter
- Applying face cream on your brows
In order to keep up with the current beauty trends, you need to stop flashing thin brows RN. While thin brows were the biggest eyebrow trend of the 90s, they are not at all appealing in present day. From celebrities to beauty gurus, everybody has been embracing fuller and more flattering brows. And you should jump onto the bandwagon too!
Going too dark
The only rule of flawless brows is that they should look natural and not made up. Precisely why, you need to go one shade lighter than your hair colour when you pick a brow product. Brows should complement your face, not overpower your features. And going too dark can make your brows look fake and at the same time unappealing.
Using a magnifying mirror
Keep your magnifying mirror aside while tweezing. It is not possible to get the right proportions when you’re looking at your face so closely. There are also chances of you ruining the arch. Instead, use a wall mirror as you pluck so you can focus on the entire face at once. Also, use as much natural light as possible while plucking.
Too much highlighter
While highlighting your brow bone is a great way of enhancing your brows, avoid going OTT. To keep the highlight gentle as well as striking, we suggest you take a flat brush to apply highlighting powder underneath your brow. Apply in a back-and-forth sweeping motion and see the magic it does in lifting your face.
Applying face cream on your brows
Did you know? Your face creams, gels, sunscreens and foundations are not good for your brows. These products seep into the brows and prevent hair growth, or worse, cause the hair to fall out. If you have scanty brows, then we suggest you massage coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil or aloe vera for hair growth.
