Grooming the brows is a quick and almost immediate way to create a more youthful and sculpted look. Trust me, not only that it frames your face but it erases years away.
There is no such thing as a perfect brow and it’s never about cookie-cutter beauty. Everyone has a unique face shape and a set of brows that complements it. So, unless you have a specific shape that you are going for, here’s 4 quick tips on how to start grooming the brow.
Locate Your Starting Points
Use a ruler or flip your makeup brush upside down and use it to locate your starting point. Place your ruler or your makeup brush vertically alongside the outer edge of the bottom of your nose. The point where the vertex lands marks the beginning of your brow. Using an eye pencil, mark a vertical line to demarcate the start of each brow. Remove the strays that fall in between both brows by plucking or shaving.
Mark Your End Points
Lay the ruler on an angle against your cheek so that the open end is at the bottom of your nose and the other end reaches the outer corner of your eye. The spot where the ruler/brush intersects your brow is where the hairs should end. Mark it with the eye pencil and clean the strays that is beyond the marked line.
Determine the shape you want
Here’s a tip if you are unsure. Always follow the natural shape of your brow's top line, which may be angled, slightly curved, or even straight. That’s the best way to identify the shape that best complements the face and most natural. What we suggest is for you to use a concealer and mark the lower line of the brow. That way, it will help you visualize the end result of the shape you like ensuring that you won’t over tweeze. Don’t worry if you don’t like shape. Just wipe the concealer off and mark the area of the lower line again until you are satisfied with the shape. Once you are sure of the shape, pluck the strays below the line which you have marked with the concealer.
Shape Your Arch
Look straight into a mirror. The arch should peak above the outer rim of your iris and lie right on your brow bone. Mark the point with your eye pencil, then remove a row of hairs along the bottom tapering at the end creating a thinner define shape of the tail of the brow.
Always remember that there are very few ( we think it's possibly 1% ) that have brows which are completely symmetrical so keep on practising your way to beautiful brow!
