The eyes are said to be the window to the soul. That being said, the eyebrows are the frames. Eyebrows are a very distinctive feature because they do a great deal of framing the face. Brows bring attention to all the parts of your face and having eyebrows that frame your facial structure properly can improve your appearance and modify the way your they are perceived.
Eyebrows have gone through so many trends throughout the decades from the pencil thing round brow of the 20s to the defined brows of the 2010s. Whatever look you are going for, here are 5 eyebrow tips to help you put your best face forward.
Brows Are Sisters, Not Twins
There is no use trying to get your brows to look symmetrical. The pursuit of perfection in getting symmetrical brows is useless and frustrating. Faces aren’t symmetrical so your eyebrows don’t need to be. Accentuating the natural brow shape will fit the structure of your face better
You might be confused here but the a few years ago soap brows were the in thing. The waxiness of soap helps the brows to stay in place for long periods. They are very good in taming bushy brows and actress, Priyanka Chopra swears by it. Use a spoolie to pick some of the product and glide on your brows.
Strokes Go Up, Not Across
When filling your brows, draw your strokes in the direction of your natural brow hairs. This is vertical or at a 45 degree. Drawing against the natural direction will give an artificial look.
Fill In Your Brows Before Plucking
If you plan on shaping your brows yourself, it’s best to fill in your hand beforehand. This will give you a guide to follow and prevent too-thin brows. Less is more in this scenario.
A Bit Lighter
When choosing an eyebrow pencil, gel or powder, choose a shade that is a bit lighter than your natural eyebrows. The oils in your skin oxidise the pigment and makes it darker through out the day. Starting out with a shade that is a bit lighter gives it a natural finish.
