When I was a teenager, thin eyebrows seemed to be the fashionable way to go – but as I got older, I’ve realized that well-groomed, natural brows are more flattering to my face. Full eyebrows are also very fashionable now, so it’s a great time to find the eyebrow shape that looks best on you. The right eyebrow shape frames your eyes and complements your entire look – and don’t worry, great eyebrows don’t require frequent trips to a salon just to have a nice shape. When you choose a great style that frames your eyes you can easily maintain the look with a pair of tweezers at home. Here are a few tips to choosing the perfect eyebrow shape:
Choose the right shape your face – Depending on the shape of your face, an eyebrow can detract or enhance your overall look. Beauty experts suggest a fuller brow for square-shaped faces, arched eyebrows for a round face and straight eyebrows for a long face. Each of these styles creates balance and symmetry to your forehead and jaw line.
Allow a professional to shape your brows – For the initial shaping of your eyebrow, it’s best to allow a professional to wax or tweeze the eyebrows so you don’t have to worry about making a mistake. Once the professional has created the perfect eyebrow for your face, you can easily use a pair of tweezers at home to maintain a shape. A professional is always the best way to go for your first time shaping your eyebrows because they will tell you exactly what you need to do to maintain the current look and give you tips on how to style your brows.
Enhance your eyebrows – Once you have the shape of your eyebrows in place, the tools you have at home will keep your eyebrows looking great. For beginners, a quality pair of tweezers is all you need to maintain the shape of your eyebrow. Products you should have on hand include an eyebrow pencil or wax to keep your brows looking amazing when you use makeup.
I’m sure everyone has heard of horror stories when it comes to over-tweezing eyebrows. In just a few minutes a slight upkeep can turn into over-tweezing, so just pluck hairs that are visibly outside of the brow line, and use your cosmetic products to enhance the arch of the brow rather than trying to shape it yourself. If you think your brows are losing shape, see a professional to get them groom them to the ideal shape.
