10 Eyebrow Hacks Everyone Should Know
Having pencil thin eyebrows, is a thing of the past. Thick, coarse and wild brows are in. At the same time, very artificial, off-coloured and sharpie-d kind of thick brows are looked down upon. Therefore, the challenge is, to achieve that effortless yet full and polished eyebrow look. Today, I am going to list out 10 eyebrow hacks which will help you achieve, full, beautiful brows without spending too much money or time:
1)Â Â Â Â Â Try and get your eyebrows done professionally, if not possible use a white eye pencil to outline your ideal brow shape and tweeze out all the hair that falls outside of that outline.
2)Â Â Â Â Â Tweeze after a bath- If you are going to shape your eyebrows through tweezing, do it after a hot bath as the hair-follicles will soften and as a result easier to remove.
3)Â Â Â Â Â Get familiar with different eyebrow grooming techniques- Thereâ€™s a lot to choose from, waxing, threading, tweezing, brow-razor, eyebrow tinting, peel-off eyebrow makeup, microblading or laser removal etc. Choose whatever feels convenient and falls within your budget.
4)Â Â Â Â Â Know the color of the eyebrow filling product- If you have darker hair, use a product that is one or two shades lighter than your hair. For example: If you have black hair, use dark brown or black brown eyebrow product to fill in your eyebrows. Also, using a cool-toned eyebrow product is always a plus as it looks more natural.
5)Â Â Â Â Â Concentrate on that arch- You should have a good idea of how you want your arch to look. For example- sharp, high, soft or low arch.
6)Â Â Â Â Â Donâ€™t forget that brow bone- If you want more lifted and dramatic eyebrows, highlight that brow bone. You donâ€™t always need an eyebrow highlight for that purpose, you can grab your favorite shimmery, light colored shadow or face highlighter for it.
7)Â Â Â Â Â Donâ€™t take a closer look! The more zoomed in view you get of your eyebrows, the more you might mess up, be it tweezing them or filling them in. Always stand a foot away, preferably in natural lighting and achieve your dream brows!
8)Â Â Â Â Â Let it fade away! Keep the front of your eyebrows soft and faded for a natural look. Most people make the common mistake of creating thick blocks at the front edges of their brows making them look very unnatural and drawn-on.
9)Â Â Â Â Â Get innovative with makeup- Grab that dark brown matte eyeshadow or dark brown mascara if you have run out of your regular eyebrow filling products. If you want to do the â€œbrushed-upâ€ look, get a regular hair gel/ hairspray or even a clear soap and shape them how you like.
10)Â Â Bald brows due to overtweezing? Use a clean mascara wand as a spoolie to apply castor oil on your eyebrows. Castor oil is known to facilitate and nourish hair growth.
