Tips on How to Manage Your Eyebrows

Your brows and lashes give your face structure. This is why it’s important that you keep those tiny arches clean and on point. However, it can be quite exhausting to wake up every day and tame your eyebrows with a spoolie brush and fill in the gaps so they are on fleek. The alternative is them being wonky and you don’t want weird looks while you are standing in the elevator to get off on your office floor.

We have extensively talked about lash lifting and how a simple DIY kit can help you achieve longer and lusher-looking eyelashes. We know you have been eagerly waiting to receive the same kind of advice for your eyebrows so here we are. 

First, let’s take a look at some of the reasons your eyebrows look so tragic: 

Eyebrow Mania – Shaping Them Wrong 

You Are Shaping Your Eyebrows Wrong

The fashion world has given us different types of eyebrow shapes. Remember the Cruella de Vil phase? Those were some harsh eyebrows. They made a woman’s face look pinched in and too sharp. The straight ones didn’t fare any better. They took the softness off your face. In our opinion, the peaked eyebrows made a person look like they were in a perpetual state of thoughts. 

The trick to getting full eyebrows is to keep your original brows and just give them a round look.

You Are Extending the Tail Too Far

The longer your eyebrows, the more your eyes will look droopy. So, make sure that they end on the right diagonal length, extending from the corner of your eye.

The Arch Is Very Sharp

While we are not against peaked eyebrows, if you make the arches too pointy, your face will get this look of anger or surprise. The arch should always be subtle and in center with your eye. 

You Don’t Groom Your Brows

Unruly brows are in right now but we never got the appeal of them. Besides, unkempt eyebrows make you look disheveled. So, pick up your spoolie brush, give your eyebrows a round shape and fill in the gaps with a matching color brow pencil.

You Are Applying Too Much Product

Eyebrow serums help you achieve longer-lasting eyebrows. However, when applying serum, make sure to blend in the product well. Visible, dry product will make your eyebrows look stiff.

Whipping Your Eyebrows Into Shape – Brow Lamination

Put down the tweezers my friend. You have tortured your eyebrows enough. You know what would be the best thing for your eyebrows right now? 

A brow lamination. 

You are probably wondering how to shape eyebrows at home and this is the answer. A DIY brow lamination kit gives your eyebrows a perm without any chemicals or painful plucking. 

A setting lotion is applied on your brows and they are brushed upwards. Once the lotion works its magic, the bonds of each hair break and make them susceptible to change. A neutralizer is then applied to shape the brows. Lastly, nourishing oil is applied, which moisturizes the brows.

Here are a few tips on how to maintain the natural look of your eyebrows:

Encourage Growth

Apply plant botanical serums on your brows daily to encourage their growth. Such serums prolong the life of your eyebrows and remove the hassle of filling in the gaps with a color pencil.

Fill Em In

Nowadays, you can do just about any beauty procedure at home and by yourself. Threading eyebrows at home can be a little difficult but it saves you a lot of money, particularly if you have thick hair growth. If something goes wrong, you can always go for eyebrow tinting for sparse brows. Make sure to choose the right color that matches your head hair and eyelashes. 

Find the Right Brow Shape According to Your Face Cut

Your eyebrows are a powerful communication tool. They also lend your face softness and sharpness based on your personality. This is why it is important that you choose the right brow shape, some of which we have mentioned below according to specific face cuts:

  • Heart Face: Round eyebrows with standard length
  • Longa Face: Slightly arched eyebrows from the end
  • Oval Face: Thicker eyebrows at the start and going thin
  • Triangle Face: Peaked eyebrows at the start
  • Square Face: Straight, slightly thick eyebrows
  • Round Face: Round, slightly thick eyebrows

Don’t Use a Magnifying Mirror

No doubt a magnifying mirror allows you to apply your makeup flawlessly. In fact, it will make brow lamination at home easier. However, when shaping or tinting them, avoid using such mirrors. With all the single hairs magnified, you will get caught in perfection. It’s possible that you might extend the tint above the hairline and make your eyebrows look thicker than they are.

Make the Arches Believable

We can’t stress enough the importance of keeping the brows free of high arches. If the arch is too pointy, your eyebrows might look like they are fake.

Keep an Eyebrow Pencil in Your Purse

A little tint on your lips and sleek-looking eyebrows are the only two touch-ups you need to make yourself look presentable. Simply tame your brow hairs with your finger and make them look fuller by using a color pencil.

And that’s how to shape eyebrows at home! Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Imagine waking up and not spending precious minutes on getting those unruly brow hairs in place. How amazing would it be to do your 5-minute makeup routine, followed by brushing your eyebrow… and you are ready. This will make your mornings much brighter because when you feel beautiful, you feel like you can conquer the world.
