We all are aware about the importance of perfectly shaped eyebrows. Though, both men and women shape their eyebrows, it is more common among women. I am yet to come across a woman who would mind having nicely groomed eyebrows. When it comes to eyebrows, not just the shape, but how we fill it matters too. So, with this post, I would like to share my tips to get perfectly shaped eyebrows, regardless of the face shape and how to fill them, the best way!
How To Get Perfectly Shaped Eyebrows
So, have you missed your last brow appointment? Don’t worry! Because missing your appointment with the beautician need not mean that you have lost control over your eyebrows. Correctly shaped eyebrows can help you look younger. Therefore, neglecting them is not advised.
Get those perfectly shaped brows by going through the following facts. These facts will help you know what ‘correctly-shaped’ brows should actually look like-
1. The inner edge of your brow, i.e. the beginning of the brow should line up with the outside of your nose.
2. The peak of the brow arch should be where the diagonal line extending from the outside of your nose touches the inner corner of your pupil.
3. The outer edge of your brow should lessen gradually from where your eyebrow & the diagonal line from the outside of your nose intersects.
4. The lower point of the inner & outer edges of your brow should be in a horizontal line.
Now, let’s proceed towards filling up those eyebrows which is as important and crucial as shaping them well.
How To Fill Up Your Brows Correctly
For super dark eyebrows, you may need to lighten them first. If you have a fair complexion, very dark brows would look odd. I have seen many people with fair skin and black brows. One of my friends falls into the same category. She bleaches them slightly with facial bleach.
[Tip -Leave the bleach on for about 5 minutes or you will colour them orange! (Believe me its true)]
Never fill in your brows with black pencil unless you want the black violent brows. Even if you have black brows, fill them with a dark brown pencil. Dark brown/khaki tint should be used for filling up the brows as these shades look more natural. You could use brow powders, pencils or gels.
The best products I’ve found are Rimmel London Professional Eye Brow Pencil 001-Dark Brown & MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Spiked. You may find these products to be expensive, if so then go for Lakme Eyebrow Pencil (costs Rs.50/- INR). These products do not smudge, look natural & have a water resistant formula.
The best way to get natural brows is to use an eyebrow powder rather than using an eyebrow pencil.
Entire eyebrow should not have the same darkness. Generally, the tail and the arch of the brow should be the most defined and the darkest. Inner edge should be lighter.
So, follow the above tips and tricks to complete your look. Cherish your brows and don’t forget the most important thing – stay happy! 🙂
