How to get perfect brows
Craving a movie star’s eyebrows? The perfect brow size and shape for your face depends on your features. If your brow were divided into thirds, the thick end should start at the base of your nose. The arch should be around the middle of your eye. The thin end should go just past the corner of your eye.
Get thicker brows
Fill in sparse brows with a powder, pencil, or gel. Go two shades lighter than your hair colour if you’re brunette, two shades darker if you have pale blonde or silver hair. When in doubt, taupe works on almost everyone. Use tiny strokes over your arches and blend with a brow brush to remove extra colour.
Skip the stencils
The perfect brow is based on your unique bone structure. Using a stencil to draw on your brows may seem like it takes the guesswork out of shaping. But you may not like the results. A stencilled brow that’s just a little bit off can make you look angry, surprised, older, or even lopsided. No thanks! Better to work with your natural brow shape.
If you aren’t sure about your brow judgment, a salon specialist can find the best shape for your face. Snap a few photos for reference at home. To keep your new look fresh, lightly pluck new hair growth once a week. For best results, make another appointment four to six weeks later.
Use the right tweezers
Rounded tip or pointy? Experts like a pointed, slanted tip, especially if you haven’t plucked before. You can hold that shape easily and grab longer hairs. For those short, stubborn hairs, turn the tweezer at an angle and pull from the pointed edge.
Let brows and hair color match
If you make a dramatic hair colour change, your brows should change, too. You’ll want to see a professional colourist. Don’t dye your brows at home, even if you have a steady hand. Need a quick fix? Blend mascara or concealer into your brows to instantly go darker or lighter.
