In recent years, the eyebrow obsession has completely dominated the beauty world. If you are familiar with the frustration of misshaped, sparse or uneven eyebrows, then you may already know why they are so important to your overall appearance. Not only do they help frame the eyes and shape your face but they are also important tools in how we communicate. While not everyone can be born with perfect brows, regular maintenance can go a long way to helping you achieve a look that suits you best.
4 Simple Steps for the Perfect Eyebrow Shape
Eyebrows have become an integral part in helping us express emotion and enhancing our natural beauty. As a result, it is absolutely necessary to have them trimmed, shaped and filled in to ensure that they make the right statement. Here are a few simple tips you can follow to get the perfect eyebrow shape for your face:
- Prepare Your Tools: You need to have the right tools before you begin shaping your brows. If you shape your eyebrows at home, invest in a good pair of tweezers as plucking is your best DIY option. Treatments like threading or waxing should be left to the professionals.
- Outline the Desired Shape: Determining the best eyebrow shape depends on the shape of your face. For instance, round faces should create as high of an arch as you can and avoid rounded brow shapes. Conversely, square faces may be more suited to a curved brow shape and avoid overly thin and short shapes. If you have a heart-shaped face, a low arch with a rounded curve looks the most natural and if your face is oval shaped, a flat and softly-angled eyebrow shape will work best. Once you have determined your face shape, take an eyebrow pencil and map out the desired shape. Anything outside the line can and should be plucked.
- Take Your Time Plucking: The best time to shape your brows is after a warm shower which will help reduce pain and allow the hairs to come out more easily. Make sure you are sitting in a brightly lit room or in natural daylight if possible. Use a large or magnified mirror to help you as you take your time forming the shape.
- Maintenance: Brow maintenance is an important step once you are happy with the final result. Tweezing one or two hairs on a daily basis is much more efficient than trying to maintain your perfect eyebrow shape towards the end of the week when several stray hairs have already grown back.
