Check Out These 10 Useful Steps For Easy DIY Eyebrow Shaping
DIY eyebrow shaping is not something many of us are brave enough to do at home. Eyebrows are two very important hairy lines, providing our face lines with totally different looks, depending on their shape. The long story made short, they’re not to mess with.
However, if you’re feeling really handy while too lazy to drop by a beauty salon, and all you need is some encourage to begin with this important beautifying mission, read our tips for DIY eyebrow shaping.
Where to begin with when you’re undertaking DIY eyebrow shaping at home?
Full, exotic-looking, groomed, luxurious eyebrows are a big thing now. Everyone has or wants to have them. However, not all of us are blessed with lovely, thick arches, so instead, we need to focus on the shape. For filling in gaps and add some depth, makeup is your loyal friend.
2- Good start
The DIY eyebrow shaping begins with a good plan. So before you take the tweezers out of your cosmetic bag, visualize your eyebrow shape. The front of your brow should align with the upper bridge of your nose.
Not to overdo the whole thing, make sure you fill in the brow before plucking. You can do this with a pencil, making sure that the arch is about three-quarters of the way back from your nose bridge. From there, the brow tail should taper off, following the angle of your eye.
4- Brush upward
After you draw your desired shape, take a spoolie brush and coax hair ups for volume and lift.
5- Get rid of the stray hairs
Once you’re done with the filling and brushing, tweeze the unwanted hair from underneath. Tweezing above the brow is not recommended unless you’re a professional, for you may accidentally tweeze into the brow and bring it down instead of lifting it up.
6- See the open spaces
Hold the tweezers against the front of the eyebrow and the inner arch to see where the hair is missing. The crucial area to fill in is the bottom portion of the arch.
7- Closing the gap
Add pigment to the areas between the inner arch and front-end, using a pencil with a minimal amount of wax to avoid the heavy and dark, sticky look.
8- Trimming excess hair
Trim only if you have to. The more you trim, the harsher the hairs get – and you don’t want to lose your beautiful feathery eyebrows. How to tell if you need trimming? Use the spoolie brush to comb the hairs upward in the direction of the brow, at an angle. Snip the hairs that are noticeably longer than the others.
9- Retracing your steps
After all the plucking and trimming, the previously used pencil will likely fade, so fill in again where you need.
Dusting a small amount of translucent powder over your brows will help to set the pencil and soak the natural skin oils.
