Bow to the Brow

No matter the look you are going for- trying or not, brows are part of the main focus of your entire look; they are the frames of the windows to your soul. Saying that, give them some love, wont you!!??
Tools & tips needed for shaping:

  • I prefer slanted tipped tweezers, but some prefer pointed tip- to save a few bucks, Revlon has a good tweezer as well. If you got, be sure they are clean and sanitary.
  • Brow brush or washed mascara wand ( of old mascara of course)
  • Try a white liner or foundation to cover the unwanted growth; this will give you your guideline.
  • Sit outside with a hand held mirror; you will be able to see all those little peach fuzzies that are easy to miss.
  • Brow pencil or angle brush and brow shadow or a matte eye shadow
  • Using a shade lighter than your hair color more often than not, is the best way to go

Re-shaping

  • 1. Begin plucking from inner face outwards. Follow your natural arch. Under your brow. If you are unsure of where to begin, use your brow brush as a tool and put on side of nose upward to inner brow, this is where the brow should begin for symmetry. You want your brows to frame your eyes and come down toward your nose. But avoid a uni- brow, and tad pole or hockey stick shape
  • 2. Pluck your hair in the way they grow- this is less painful and will ensure the re growth grows back flat not outward
  • 3. Keep natural length and shape, you are just removing what looks like re- growth
  • 4. Groom your brows sweeping upwards trim them if they are looking high and long, you may just want to trim the inner part of brow.

Daily grooming

  • 1. Groom the brows with your daily brow attention as well. Use your brow brush or washed mascara wand ūüėČ Some like to use a brow gel, looks fresh and opens up the eyes use your gel at the last step
  • 2. Using your brow shader (pencil or shadow with angle brush) use the tool in light sketch like motions for a natural look, rather than dark harsh lines, or even worse, one long dark line.
  • 3. Use your brow brush to lighten and or blend if necessary, you may even need to use a sponge or q -tip to take way some shader.

Good luck brow beauties J
