The Shape of your eyebrows can completely change the appearance of your face. Makeup can be used to add depth, fill in any gaps and help your eyebrows appear as symmetrical as possible. (Remember, eyebrows are sisters, not twins!)
There are three different techniques for shaping eyebrows:
- Waxing – Removing hair from the root of the follicle. This gradually starts to reduce hair growth.
- Threading – This works best for sensitive skin. It’s an ancient Indian method using cotton thread.
- Tweezing – Effective method for removing unwanted stray hairs.
- Take a spoolie brush and brush the brows upwards. This instantly neatens the brow up and gives a better idea of the overall shape.
- Add a little moisturizer to the brow area and let it soak in. This will help to reduce any pain.
- Remove any unwanted stray hairs with tweezers. Ideally, the beginning of the brow should align with the center of the nostril and the arch should align with the back third of the eye.
- Use a powder in your desired shade – my favorite powders are included in the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pro Palette. Take a thin, angled brush and begin drawing a soft line on the inner edge of the eyebrow.
- Brush the powder through at an upward angle with the spoolie brush and gradually build up with the product until you have your desired depth. Think of your spoolie brush as you would a blending brush when using eyeshadow. It reduces any harsh edges when adding color, making the brows appear as natural as possible.
- Add a little more powder to the arch of the brow and then bring it down to the tail using one, soft sweep.
- If you want more definition and precision, take a clean angled brush and a cream concealer and apply directly under your brow, making sure it’s well blended.
