Five Simple Beauty Tips To Achieve Perfect Eyebrows.

Eyebrows are one of the most important yet most neglected features of the face. The eyebrow has the ever important role of framing the windows to the soul, the eyes. Having eyebrows that are over-plucked or the wrong shape can completely unbalance the rest of your facial features. On the other hand, having perfect eyebrows that are shaped and coloured to suit your other facial features, can enhance your look dramatically.

From eyebrow plucking and eyebrow waxing through to the use of eyebrow threading and eyebrow tinting, there are many beauty tips to ensure your eyebrows are kept looking their best. Remember these simple guidelines before embarking on your quest for perfect eyebrows.

  1. The Right Eyebrow Shape.

    The ideal eyebrow shape is as different for each individual as the rest of the features on their face. To find out your ‘ideal’ shape, arm yourself with a mirror and an eyebrow pencil and do the following:

    • Use the eyebrow pencil to line up the inner corner of your eye with the outer edge of your nose. Draw a dot where the pencil crosses your eyebrow line. This is where your eyebrow should start. Over plucking can sometimes result in the eyebrow starting too far out from the centre.

    • Use the eyebrow pencil to line up the outer edge of your nose with your iris. Draw a dot where the pencil meets your eyebrow to mark where your arch should peak.

    • Now line up the eyebrow pencil with the outer edge of your nose and the outer corner of your eye. Where the pencil intersects with your brow line is where your eyebrow should finish.

  2. Bushy Eyebrows or Sleek Eyebrows?

    Over the years we have seen many eyebrow trends and weird beauty tips come and go. Try to avoid the current fashion and focus on designing your eyebrow to suit your face. After all, natural beauty is an everlasting fashion statement. When considering how thin or bushy your eyebrows should be, remember that thicker eyebrows suit larger eyes and thinner eyebrows suit smaller eyes. Also consider the thickness of your lips and balance your eyebrows accordingly. Eyebrows that are a similar thickness to your top lip will help create a balanced look for your face.

  3. To Tweeze OR Not To Tweeze?

    When shaping your eyebrows, use good lighting, and tweeze only the hairs that sit outside the dots and lines you have created using the instructions above. Once you have achieved your eyebrow shape, keep eyebrow plucking to an absolute minimum. When maintaining your new shape, stand at least 30cm away from the mirror and tweeze only the hairs that are visibly out of place at that distance. Avoid the temptation to keep plucking in order to ‘even up’ your eyebrows… before you know it you will have lost all your shape! Worse still, eyebrow hairs can take up to 6-8 weeks to grow back and sometimes don’t grow back at all.

  4. Does Eyebrow Colour Matter?

    If your hair is it’s natural colour, chances are that your natural eyebrow colour will suit your look. If your hair is significantly lighter or darker than your natural colour, it’s a good idea to bleach or tint your eyebrows to match your new hair colour. If you need to make your eyebrows lighter the best option is to have your eyebrows bleached lighter by a qualified beauty therapist. If you want to make your eyebrows darker, you can have them professionally tinted or you may like to invest in a good quality eyebrow pencil or eyebrow shadow.

  5. Eyebrow Styling Is A Must.

    Regularly styling your eyebrows not only looks great, it also trains the hairs to sit in alignment over time. Use a good eyebrow brush and eyebrow gel to keep your newly shaped eyebrows in perfect form. If you don’t have eyebrow gel handy, clear mascara or a little bit of hair spray sprayed onto your eyebrow brush will also do a great job.

Achieving the perfect eyebrows doesn’t have to be overwhelming or confusing. Just follow the simple beauty tips above and you will be well on your way to achieving the brow that is perfect just for you. If your eyebrows have been the victim of over-plucking, be patient and give them some time to grow. If you are concerned or nervous, book a consultation with a qualified beauty therapist. A beauty therapist will also be able to explain the benefits of eyebrow waxing and eyebrow threading.
