Whether you have naturally nice full brows as a basic foundation or you are blond and have light eyebrows or sporadic growth, no growth or a uni-brow like poor Bert from Sesame Street, beautiful brows can be in your future. I’ll share with you a fun, easy approach to getting professional styled eyebrows on your own. Start now and in 6 weeks you will have beautiful professional styled eyebrows!
Your eyebrows are one of the most important features on your face. Eyebrows frame your eyes and move with your facial expressions and balance your whole face. when they are styled properly you actually look better and need less makeup which is a boon for women in their 30’s and 40’s. Think a young Brook Shields good eyebrows are youthful. While Brook’s eyebrows of the 1980’s Calvin Kline days are fuller in style than eye brows fashionable today, they are are still youthful and alluring in-their naturalness.
If you shave, over pluck or just have sporadic growth leave them alone for at least 6 weeks so you can see how much of an eyebrow you are going to have to work with and to start to define what kind of shape they naturally are inclined too. Because to look good your eyebrows need to be shaped in harmony with how your brows naturally grow.
The biggest mistake I see with my clients is over plucking or shaving and or over plucking the wrong parts of the eyebrow (THE WORST!) The biggest offenses are over plucking the outer corner (near your temple), the inner part near your nose and the arch area of the eyebrows. A good rule of thumb is to keep your eyebrows basic shape in perfect harmony to the inner and outer corners of your eyes at each point.
To accomplish this use a thin makeup brush handle to make an imaginary line at each corner, mark it with a brow pencil if you have to even it there is no hair at the outer temple corners this will allow you to see where you need to grow the hair in, and don’t worry you can fake it in the mean time. Just remember all good things come to those who wait!
I am going to show you how you can study eyebrows so you do not have to go spend up to $50.00 a pop for a a basic first time eyebrow shaping. Instead spend $4.00 on any good fashion or beauty magazine that shows women’s faces in advertisements and layouts, examples of good studies are : In-Style, Vogue, Allure, Bazar, and or Marie Claire etc.
With magazine in hand and a little time, at least a half hour (grab some herbal tea and a sharpie and a hand mirror) sit in a cozy chair in a well lit area and look..really study the eyebrows of these models and actresses in the ads and layouts. Study how their eyebrows work with their eye shape & face shape. See where they start and where they end, and compare brows.
Then the fun part, take a your sharpie and (no, don’t draw mustaches on the models…though I know it is tempting) start to circle those eyebrows that are most similar in coloring as yours. Notice how they are shaped just keep looking and you will see a definite style among the brows. Then grab your mirror and take a good look at your brows and see how they are the same or different than those in the photographs. Are they groomed? slightly arched? Too thin? To thick? etc…cut out or tear out the photos of eyebrows that are most applicable to your eyebrow shape, and color.
I cannot express more the difference a little eyebrow dye can make especially for blondes and those with light or gray hair. It is a great asset to dye them before shaping because you will see you had eyebrow hairs you never knew about. Think Gwen Stephanie with platinum brows to match her hair…not good.
