Beautiful Brows

 

Many women often forget about their eyebrows in their daily beauty routine, or are simply at a loss for how to groom them. Considering eyebrows can really impact your look, we want to emphasize how to achieve beautiful brows to keep you looking your best!
The first thing to do is brush them out. (Quick tip: If you don’t own a brow brush, you can use a disposable mascara wand). This allows you to pin point the out-of-place hairs that need to be plucked or trimmed.
From there, the first area to tweeze is the space between eyebrows. To determine where to start, take a pencil and hold it parallel to the side of your nose. Where the brush meets your brow is where your brow should begin (about parallel to the inner corner of your eye).
For the area underneath the brow, tweeze hairs under your arch in the direction they grow while holding skin taut. Note: never over-tweeze! Eyebrows don’t always grow back the same after being plucked so it’s best to tweeze slowly and carefully, ensuring you’re tweezing the right amount.
To define eyebrows, fill them in with a brow pencil or powder. We love using “hitch” from the Sigma Beauty Bare Palette as a brow-filler. Simply dampen the Sigma Beauty Small Angle brush E65, dip in the shadow and apply it to areas of brows that need a bit more color using light, feathery strokes.

Final tips:

- Situate yourself next to a window that provides natural light prior to tweezing
- Use a magnifying mirror
- Make sure your tweezers are sharp and have a slanted edge
- To keep tweezers clean, periodically wipe with rubbing alcohol
- Accentuate your brow bone by applying a highlighting powder directly under brow (as we mentioned back in our "Conquering Contouring and Hints on Highlighting” post)
- Keep your brows in place all day with a brow gel. If you don’t have any, you can apply a dab of hairspray to your finger and use it to keep unruly hairs in place.

So there you have it – the basics of achieving beautiful brows. What tricks do you have for keeping your eyebrows well-groomed?

  8. i use clear mascara as a brow gel, its does the trick and doesnt add any colour to the brows and the wand helps to reshape the brow and soften it out again,
    hope this helped
