The Way to Eyebrow Make Up
The eyebrows are the most important feature in defining the face. The trick to applying a natural eyebrow shape is using a hard stiff, short brush, and working with colorations instead of pencils.
Pencils can be used, but it takes practice and patience to get a natural look.
The first step is tweezing. Start by thinning the eyebrow, then slowly begin to define the arch. The arch should reach the highest point above the middle of your iris. Thin from that point out. The brows are the frame of your eyes. Don't be afraid to tweeze your eyebrows - BUT NEVER SHAVE YOUR EYEBROWS. Spend your money on a good tweezer.
The general rule of determining the shape of your eyebrow is to hold a pencil vertically alongside your face to the point where the pencil meets your eyebrow. That is the natural starting point. Tweeze the stray hairs between the two starting points. The end point is found by angling the pencil past the outer corner of your eye. Remove stray hairs beyond that spot, and from below your natural arch.
The shape and grooming of your eyebrows will make your eyes look bigger and open up your face more naturally then wearing a lot of makeup. Be careful, as heavy brows will overpower your face. Shape your eyebrows by tweezing the hairs from underneath, not from above.
TIP: Tweeze after a shower and it will be less painful. Most people have a good natural shape; it just needs to be defined better.
TIP: Take the color that is the closest to your eyebrow color and fill in the gaps to make a nicely groomed brow. If in doubt, always go a little lighter then your brow.
Control Your Brows :
- Brush brows straight up and then check for hairs that are too long.
- Snip any offending hair one at a time with a small pair of scissors.
- Brush brows downward and check again.
- Repeat the previous step, snipping any hair that seems to be too long.
- Brush brows into place and check for any hairs that still might need attention.
- Continue brushing and snipping until your brows can be brushed into place naturally.
