Brow Shaping

Brow Shaping

Beautifully shaped eyebrows with a nice arch are an important part of a polished look. When done well, eyebrow shaping calls attention to your eyes, frames them, and makes them appear more open. Eyebrows have a big impact on how you look. Your look changes dramatically if you go from full, bushy eyebrows or pencil thin brows. You want to be ahead of the beauty game. You can go to a professional to get your brows perfected; then keep them that way on your own!

It's easy to make mistakes when you do it yourself. The most common mistake is over-tweezing into a thin, high, rounded eyebrow that gives your face a permanently surprised look.

Another common mistake of do-it-yourselfers is creating an unflattering fish-hook shape where the thickest part of the brow gets much thinner abruptly. For people with thin, blonde eyebrows, it's easy to take too much off the sides so the brow seems to disappear.

So what's the secret to getting the best brows for your face? Here are some tips:

  • Don't ever shape your eyebrows yourself. It's too easy to ruin your whole look with a badly shaped brow.
  • Do find an eyebrow designer who specializes in eyebrows. A good eyebrow designer will create a brow shape that is right for your face shape and the kind of eyebrow you have to work with - light, medium or full.
  • Do build a monthly visit to the eyebrow designer into your beauty budget, just like haircuts, color, and manicures and pedicures.
  • If you can't afford a monthly visit, don't do anything beside cleaning up the strays that are well below your eyebrow.
  • To find a good eyebrow designer in your area, start looking at other people's eyebrows. If you see someone with beautiful eyebrows, ask them who did it.
  • Don't get your eyebrows waxed if you're using a product like Accutane or Retin-A. It can take off the outer layer of skin.
  • Do check out products that can help thin brows look fuller.
