Fill Them in With Powder or Pencil
. Use a brow shadow (like eye shadow, but for your brows) to fill in brows for a natural, soft look, says Shten. Using an angled brush, apply the shadow on and right around your brows, without straying too far from your natural hair line. If you have any bigger spots that need filling in like around a scar use an eyebrow pencil instead. Apply in thin, light strokes in the same direction your hair grows, almost like youre drawing in the hair, says S
Find the Right Shade
. Whether youre using a shadow or pencil, youll obviously want to pick a color as close to your natural eyebrows as possible (which isnt necessarily the same as the hair on your head). But if you cant find the right match, use a shade lighter, says Shten. This will look more natural than a too dark hue.
Step Away From the Tweezers
. It happens all the time: You go in to just clean things up a bit, but end up going a little (OK, a lot) overboard. Unfortunately, it can take eyebrows anywhere from six to eight weeks to grow out, says Shten so you should try to abstain from tweezing if youre going for a fuller look. Refrain from using hair dyes on your lashes, too they can damage the hair even more.
Opt for Oil
. Shten suggests rubbing a little coconut oil on your brows a few times a week before bed. Its great for skin and hair, and it can help protect those tiny strands from damage.
Shaping your brows
. Use this simple three step trick to figure out your ideal brow shape: First, take your eyebrow pencil and, using a stick, line up the inner corner of your nose with the inner corner of your eye; make a mark with your pencil there. This is where your eyebrow should start. Next, hold the stick at an angle from the outside corner of your nose through the outer corner of your pupil and make another mark this is where your arch should be. Finally, lin
. Perfect symmetry is not something that anyone should strive for when it comes to their brows. Manias warns against trying to make them identical, as the over plucking that it would take to achieve this would result in thinner, less attractive brows. Remember, brows are sisters, not twins; one will naturally differ from the other.
Trimming your brows
. Manias advises using caution when attempting to trim lengthy brows, as its easy to make a slip that causes the overall shape to change. Take an eyebrow brush, and brush brows straight up. Then, using small straight edged scissors, trim only the hairs that go above and beyond the natural brow line. Dont trim beyond the arch: Taking too much off the tail will shorten the brows.
. Manias recommends doubling up your brow cosmetics: When grooming and filling brows, its best to use two different products in order to create texture, thus resulting in a more natural, hair like appearance. For example, use a combo of powder topped with wax, or pair a pencil with a gel.
. Manias says that while plucking a grey hair will not result in having seven more grow in its place (thats an old wives tale), it could create a patchy space in your brow. Instead, salon tinting is one way of adding pigment back short term. Or, using a tinted brow product like Bene?fits BrowZings [shown here] you can disguise grey hairs in an instant. A setting brow gel can also be your best friend when attempting to keep unruly grey hairs in thei
DIY job or professional care
. Simran warns against blindly wielding a razor or pair of tweezers without due care and attention. Ninety per cent of men who come to the centre need their brows rescuing after their wife or girlfriend had tried to tackle them at home, says Simran. One man came in with one eyebrow arched upwards and another went straight across his forehead with a razor and was left with awful stubble. Weve seen it all.If you really must perform a self trim, tweez
In safe hands
. Professional beauty therapists offer painless tweezing services and also threading and waxing. Threading uses a piece of cotton to wrap around each individual brow hair to remove excess strands one by one, Simran says. For waxing treatments we use lavender based wax that shrink wraps around the brow hair and is suitable for delicate areas. These treatments are popular and widely available.So whether you choose a professional thread or a home job
. First, use an eyelash curler to curl them up and create a wide open look. It took me a long time to learn how to use an eyelash curler, and I was always nervous when a makeup artist came at me with one of those. The trick here is to look down, get it as close as you can to the base of the lashes, and gently clamp down, holding it there for 5 seconds. Keep your hands free by putting a hand held mirror down flat and stand above it while looking dow
. Next, use you favorite mascara and coat your top and bottom lashes. There are so many varieties of mascara thickening, curling, lengthening, colored, waterproof, etc. My personal favorite is DIORSHOW Extase by Dior in super black. I love it because it gives an amazingly long and thick look to my lashes. And the best part is that it doesnt smudge under my eyes in the heat and humidity throughout the day.
. If you want a more dramatic look, or if your lashes are not very long, opt to use false lashes. Falsies, as they are sometimes called, are available in all shapes, colors and sizes a mind can imagine. Heres what to do with them: cut the length to fit your lash line if you need to, and apply as close to the top lash line possible. This may take some time to master, but practice makes perfect, as we know.
. If you dont like to wear falsies or if you want more natural looking long lashes, guess what now theres a solution available from the pharmacy. Theres a product out in the market called Latisse, which is a brand name for a generic drug called Bimatoprost Opthalmic Solution. This solution was originally used to treat glaucoma in the eyes. The patients were pleasantly surprised to see that the side effect of this medicine was unusual growth of las
Plan to wait for several months
. Eyebrows take a long time to grow back fully after theyve been over plucked. For some people it might only take six weeks, but others may have to wait a full year before their eyebrows regain their former shape. The best thing you can do for your brows is be patient. Look at it this way: at least your brows wont need a lot of maintenance for awhile.
Stop plucking and waxing
. You probably already know this one, but its worth emphasizing that plucking or waxing around your eyebrows isnt going to help them grow faster. In fact, sometimes plucking and waxing eyebrows damages the hair follicle permanently, preventing the hair from ever growing back.
Grow them in rows
. If you cant stand the idea of letting all your hairs grow out before you shape your eyebrows, try the row growing strategy. Allow a row of hair to grow out and pluck the stray hairs around it. When the row is finished growing in, start on the next row. Continue growing your brows out a row at a time until theyre finished growing back.This method gives your brows a neater appearance while still allowing you to grow them back.The row growing metho
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 stenciled brow thats 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.
Make Brows Match Your Hair
. If you make a dramatic hair color change, your brows should change, too. Youll want to see a professional colorist. Dont dye your brows at home, even if you have a really steady hand. Need a quick fix Blend mascara or concealer into your brows to instantly go darker or lighter.
Use the Right Tweezers
. Rounded tip or pointy Experts like a pointed, slanted tip, especially if you havent 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.
When to Put the Tweezers Down
. If you see a teeny little dot of hair growing under the skin, resist the urge to pull it. You dont want to break the skin and risk a scar. Wait a day and that little hair probably will poke through the surface, ready to be plucked. In the meantime, if it bothers you, cover it with concealer.
Let a Pro Guide You
. If you arent sure about your own 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.
Open Your Eyes
. Curled lashes make you look wide eyed. Do it before you put on mascara. Use firm pressure but dont clamp down too hard. You dont want to pinch your skin, crease your lashes, or pull them out. You may get better results from curling in stages, moving out from the lash roots to the tips. A corner lash curler can get to hard to reach outer ones.
Brush Up on Your Mascara
. Your mascara matters for making lashes look fuller or longer. The brush matters, too! Rubber bristles coat even the tiniest lashes from root to tip, adding length. Plastic bristles give you a clean, natural looking lash line. Fiber bristles build lash thickness and boost the fringe. If you like your mascara but want a new look, try using a different brush. You can buy them at beauty stores.
Smooth Moves to Prevent Clumping
. You dont want eyes that look like scary spiders! Dip the brush in the tube and wipe it on a paper towel (not a tissue) to get rid of extra mascara. Another trick: Twirl a clean, disposable mascara wand through wet lashes. For easy, no scrub cleanup, loosen the mascara with a warm, damp washcloth. Press it against your closed eyes. Next, dip a cotton pad into a makeup remover for sensitive eyes. Wipe the pad downward on your lashes a few times.
Dont Flake Out
. By the end of the day, do you get flecks of mascara on your cheeks Look for a tubing mascara. Tubing formulas tend not to flake because they encase lashes. When you remove the mascara with warm water, it slides off as complete tubes. Expert tip: Set your regular mascara with a tubing kind.
. False lashes equal pure Hollywood glamour, but they can be tricky to master. They come in full strips and individual lashes. Hold the lash with a pair of tweezers while you put a dot of glue on your upper eyelid. Let the glue thicken, and then use the tweezers to guide the lash to your lid. If you have dark skin, try a dark tone glue made for brown or black lashes.
