|Home E Eyebrows: How to Get Perfect Eyebrows|
Eyebrows are a natural frame for the eyes and should be in proportion to the face. Perfectly shaped eyebrows will enhance the look of your eyes and face and will accentuate your makeup while ill-kept, unruly eyebrows will hide the beauty of your eyes.
1. Pluck only from the underside of the brow in the direction that the hair is growing. Don't pluck from the top of the brow and chance plucking too much, thereby losing the shape of the brow. You may also want to pluck any stray hairs between the brows. If you find it painful apply a lubricant before you pluck, preferably one that has a dulling effect like oral gel.
2. If you find your eyebrows are starting to thin, use a brow color to fill them in using feather strokes; do not draw on lines in place of eyebrows.
3. Brows should be the same color as your hair or a shade lighter.
4. Your brow should start right above the inner corner of your eye. To determine where the eyebrow should start, place a pencil against the nostril and line it up with the inner corner of your eye. Your eyebrow should end at a diagonal with the outer corner of your eye. To determine this, place a pencil at the side of your nose ending at the outer corner of your eye. The eyebrow should arch above the outer rim of the iris.
Be careful when you tweeze; if you are unsure go to a professional. Incorrect tweezing can ruin the look of your eyebrows and after a certain time the eyebrow will not grow back. If you do use a professional, keep regular appointments and don't let your eyebrows get too unruly between appointments. Or, after you've had a professional do your eyebrows, keep them in shape by plucking the stray hairs as they grow.
