Eyebrows makeup is a forgotten art for most of the people. Most of the people don’t trim or groom of their eyebrows. Not to talk about they do good eyebrow makeup in their daily makeup routines.
If you want to start to do your eyebrows makeup, first of all, you need to trim and shape your eyebrows. Some people shape with razors, some people do eyebrow waxing or threading and some people use tweezers to shape their eyebrows.
I use razors to shape my eyebrows. I shaped my own eyebrows since i was in 8th grade. I simply use the razors and eyebrow scissors to shape my eyebrow. I always change my eyebrow shape according to my hairstyles and moods.
Eyebrows shape is very important for each person look or makeup. Your entire look can change just because of your eyebrows. Eyebrows are vital part in your face. You can make your face stronger, soft, and prettier with just your eyebrows.
In the ways of shaping your eyebrows, i believe using razors and tweezers are easiest way and best way to use. Waxing and threading are good for big ares hairs part . Grooming eyebrows is very detail and you just have to remove little bit of hairs. If you will start to tweeze your eyebrows as first time, make sure you put ice on your eyebrows and make your eyebrows numb before starting. If you will use a razor as first time, apply some cream on your eyebrow before and use a safe razor which is new, sharp and not easy to cut your skin. Always good to have little eyebrow scissors and eyebrow comb for polishing your work.
To get a perfect shape for your face, before you trim your brows, get a mirror, and some eyepencil. Look at yourself in the mirror, place your pencil beside your nose, and then you can see where should your eyebrow starts, the point your eyebrow and pencil meets, make a first mark. Then go like a clockwise, in the middle, you will get your highest point and ending point, which the pencil and corner of your eye meet. So you get 3 marks, then connect those 3 points with eyepencil. You will get your basic eyebrow shape. Then you can start trimming your eyebrows. After that, some people have very thick and bushy eyebrow starting, so you should comb with eyebrow comb and cut little ends of those brow hairs to look neat.
For eyebrow makeup, you can use eyebrow pencil or eyebrow powder or eyeshadow as you like. I always prefer eyebrow powder with an angled brush. I also use eyebrow pencil to draw the ending part though. Normally you should choose the eyebrow color to be one or tone lighter than your hairs color. I normally use dark brown and brown brow powder. I don’t use black color much as it gives you a stronger look. But some makeup style should use black brows of course.
And after your eyebrows makeup, there is a way to make your brows perfect. You can use clear mascara or eyebrow wax to brush and let the eyebrow hairs stay in the flow. If you don’t have those or don’t want to use, there is an another way, you can use a hairspray and a disposable mascara wand. Spray the hairspray on the mascara wand, then gently comb on your eyebrows. This is a tip to make perfect eyebrows 😀
Some people tattooed the eyebrows permanently or for sometimes. But i am not really a fan of those as i always like changing my eyebrow shapes according to my hairstyles and makeup trends. My mom once asked me she should tattooed her eyebrows as she can’t see things well after she is 50+, but i gave her eyebrow brush and comb, eyebrow powder and eyepencil, a big mirror and also taught her how to do her eyebrows makeup well. So she now enjoyed doing eyebrow makeup since then 😀
And i believe you should change your eyebrow style often to change your look softer or stronger. Also you can change the color tones. It is really fun actually 🙂
