5 rookie eyebrow mistakes you might be making

As a beauty obsessed person, it is very natural for you to spend the longest part of your beauty routine just trying to perfect your eyebrows, because you know brows can make or break your look. But grooming your brows and making them look natural and perfect is a struggle that we girls know only too well.

But whether you are a seasoned brow enthusiast or someone learning how to define your brows for the first time, you could still be making certain mistakes while filling them in. Here are some common eyebrow filling mistakes that you must avoid to ace the brow game like never before!

Using the wrong shade of brow product

Choosing the correct shade for your brows is quite a daunting task. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be so. Here’s a simple trick to help you get it right each time - choose a brow product that is one shade lighter than your hair colour. Lighter tones look a lot more natural and help conceal mistakes more easily.

You’re using the wrong product

The sheer number of brow products available in the market can leave the best of us confused. But here’s a little help to pick that very product that works perfectly for you. Use a brow powder if you have sparse areas that need to be filled in as they provide a softer, more natural appearance to your brows. An eyebrow pencil is perfect for filling in a few hair that might be missing. If you want to create a bold brow or simply want to darken them, pomades are what you need. Waxes and gels are best for women with full brows because they have a light tint and help keep unruly brow hair in place.

Applying too much highlighter on the brow bone

Adding a highlight under the arch of the brow is an easy way to make your face look brighter. But using the wrong colour or formula can take attention away from your eyebrows. Apply a concealer that’s one shade lighter than your skin tone, and you should be good.

You’re using the wrong brush

If you use a cream or powder filler, you can't use just any old makeup brush to fill your brows in. If it's too wide or flat, it can give you messy or unnatural-looking lines. Opt for a thin, angled brush to make your strokes appear much more natural and perfectly fill in your brows.

Using brow stencils

In theory, eyebrow stencils seem like a great way to attain the perfect shape. In reality, you can wind up with brows that look too 'drawn' that aren't right for your face. You don’t want to end up with brows that are either too short, too angular or too thin for your face, right?
