Making your eyebrows look fuller is one of those beauty steps where a little bit of effort goes a long way, but it’s easy to make a mess of it if you don’t know what you’re doing. So here, we’ll try to help you get the brows that you want. Don’t worry, it’s easier than you think!
Finding the perfect eyebrow shape for your face shape
You can’t just choose a brow shape that fits your fancy, as some brow shapes are not flattering for the shape of your face. If your face is round, try to create as high an arch as you can. Look for a brow shape that follows a straight line to the peak of the brow, and stay away from a rounded brow shape. For a square face, consider a curved brow shape, soft, or hard-angled shape. Women with a heart-shaped face should stick with a low arch and rounded brow shape, as it creates a more natural look. And if you have an oval face, choose a flat and soft-angled eyebrow shape. Those should go straight up, and then gently curve around at the top.
Plucking and trimming your brows the right way
To create shape for your brows, sometimes it’s best to stick with the basics. Yes, take your tweezers and start plucking! Run an ice cube over your brows to reduce the redness, swelling, and pain, or apply some skin moisturizer. Now, trace the natural shape of your brows. Any sparse hair beyond the outline should be plucked. Be careful when plucking the area above the brow: if you go too far and over-pluck it, the brow will look unnaturally thin. After every few tweezes, take a couple of steps back to see the bigger picture and evaluate the result. You can also use a special brush to comb your eyebrows, and trim any hairs that stick up above the brow line with a small pair of nail scissors or eyebrow scissors.
Filling them out
Now it’s time to fill in your eyebrows. Keep in mind that the color of your eyebrows should be very close to the tone of your hair. You can fill in your eyebrows using a pencil, eyebrow powder or shadow, and brow mascara. Whatever you choose, the basic steps for getting your perfect eyebrows are almost the same. First, use an eyebrow brush to lightly brush brow hairs. Then line the bottom curve of the brow, and fill in the hairless spots. You can make the tail of your brow if needed, and outline the top and bottom edges of your brow, but be careful with the margins of your natural brow shape. It’s also important not to add too much color near the bridge of the nose. If you want the brow shape to look more well defined, try to highlight the skin between the eyebrow and the eyelid using concealer.
