HOW TO ACHIEVE A PERFECT SET OF BROWS By Elise Firestone
Did you know that your eyebrows shape your face? Having the perfect brows can really make your eyes stand out and enhance your natural facial features. Here are some quick-tips on shaping and maintaining your brows.
Always know where the brow line is. To measure, use a pencil to guide where the arch should be. The front of your brow should align with the bridge of your nose. The arch should be ¾ of the way across the eye, and the tail of your brow should taper off at the end of your eye.
Never over tweeze the hairs. Most people make the mistake of taking off too much hair, and then the hair doesn’t want to grow back.
Waxing? Well, just be careful. Again, if you take too much hair off you will regret it. Using a pair of tweezers allows you to control what exact hairs you are pulling.
To fill in your brows use a pencil or a powder. I highly recommend this if you have little hair or perhaps the hair doesn’t grow in certain spots.
MEN! Do not shave your brows! The biggest mistake I see is men using a razor blade to cut their brows. No! Find a professional brow person who can shape your brows. Trust me! Having nice full brows is super attractive on a guy.
