Eyebrow Shaping Tips
If you haven’t already heard, one of the biggest of-the-moment trends in beauty is a thick, full brow. Think Kim Kardashian, Cara Delevigne, and Lily Collins. But for anyone with thinning or sparse brows, this trend can be tough to master. Read on for some eyebrow shaping tips to help you get Hollywood-ready brows in no time, even if you’re a makeup newbie.
Choose Your Eyebrow Products Wisely
There are several options when it comes to eyebrow makeup, the most common being a makeup pencil. You can also use powder makeup. With products like these, you need to be extra careful. Going too heavy on your brow makeup can be very obvious with makeup pencils and powders. The idea is to get a natural look so always go easy on pencils and powders. Plus, they’re not very forgiving, so you if you aren’t careful, you’ll have to wipe it all off and start from scratch.
Of course, we have a fabulous product to help make flawless eyebrows easy as pie. Our all-new Eyebrow Thickening Fibers are a quick, easy, and natural way to better brows. The finish is so real because the fibres are actually made of sheep’s wool. They’re real hair fibres that mix in with your own natural hairs to create a finish that looks effortlessly chic. Plus, we promise it’s really easy to use.
Each eyebrow kit comes with a double-ended applicator brush, a pot of beeswax, and a pot of hair fibres in the colour of your choice. Start by using the angled end of the brush to apply the beeswax base. This is an all-natural beeswax that won’t irritate the eyes or the skin. (The zinc oxide in there makes sure of it!) It’s what will allow the fibres to stick in place but it’s also very smooth and hydrating – no clumpy mess! Once the brow shape has been defined by the wax, use the other end of the brush to literally dab on the powder. Once it’s on, it won’t budge. You can rub your brows and your fibres will not move. Next, go back to the angled side that has a slight beeswax residue and use the side of it to clean up rough edges and smooth your brow line.
But it’s important to remember that no matter how great the product, you also need to stick to a few basic brow rules if you want absolutely perfect eyebrows. Here are a few other tips to help you keep your brows on the right track.
Choose the Right Shade
Regardless of the product you choose, it’s crucial you choose the right colour. Always stick with a colour closest to your hair colour or natural brow colour. If the makeup you apply is too light, it will stand out and that fuller, thicker effect you’re going for won’t pan out. When in doubt, always go one shade darker.
Follow Your Brow Line
You may want to slightly exaggerate your brow thickness to capture this trend but remember not to overdo it. Straying too far from your brow’s natural line and shape can look off. The best way to shape and define your brows is to follow the natural line back and forth, thickening it slowly. This is probably the best eyebrow shaping tip you’ll ever hear: build slowly.
With your product of choice, start by just filling in the gaps and refining the edges. Once the fullness is to your satisfaction, then you can work on the thickness. You may desperately want a perfect Kim K brow line, but a natural look is always better. Stick close enough to your brow line to keep the look natural and to maintain your own personal style.
Another important brow shaping tip is to make sure they’re both even. Align the start of your brow with the inner corner of your eye. Then use an object (let’s say tweezers) and hold them against that line. Compare with the other side to make sure each brow is starting at the same point relative to your nose on either side. Then do the same for the outer end of the brows to make sure each one is even.
Refine Your Eyebrows and the Surrounding Area
Once you have designed your killer brows, be sure to smooth out the edges with a makeup brush. This is especially true if you’re using eyebrow stencils to help you along. If you don’t blend the edges slightly, your brows will look painted on, which is never a good look for anyone.
And be sure to clean up. All the time spent thickening and perfecting your brows with your best eyebrow makeup will be all for nothing if your brow area is littered with strays. Pluck the extras out of the way to give a smooth, clean look. The cleaner the surrounding area is, the more defined and refined your eyebrows will appear to be.
More About Eyebrow Thickening Fibres…
Now that we’ve piqued your interest with your all new Eyebrow Thickening Fibers, here are some more fun facts you’re probably wondering about. If sweat or heat is a concern for you, set your mind at ease. The water resistant formula will stay in place until you scrub the area clean with soap or makeup remover. No one wants to be stuck with melting brows on a hot day!
Another great part about using the fibres is that it’s a very easy way to cover up white or grey hairs. For women who are starting to deal with this issue, these fibres are the answer. They completely cover up the lack of pigment to help your eyebrows look even and full. In fact, because of the beeswax base, you can cover up basically anything. We’ve even used this product over scars running straight through a brow. The beeswax adheres to the skin and the fibres stick on top, covering up unsightly scars instantly.
Because the product is also not a permanent fix, you’re free to design your eyebrows however you like. You can go thicker or thinner, depending on the occasion. There are loads of pricey treatments out there to help fill in sparse brows. But semi-permanent treatments require maintenance, and permanent ones – well, there’s just no going back. Eyebrow styles and shapes change often enough. But our washable eyebrow thickening fibers are the perfect solution for perfect brows that are always in style.
Another great part about the eyebrow fibers is that they don’t leave a trail of powder behind. The particles stick to the applicator brush with static electricity and then adhere to the eyebrows with their beeswax coating. Flaking or crumbling products are never the solution, especially when you’re finishing off your entire look with that step. A mess could mean having to wash up and start all over again. These fibres will not spill and once you start dabbing them on, they just stay in place.
But quite possibly the best part, is that application only takes a few minutes and anyone can do it. You don’t need to go to the salon and have a professional shape your brows everyday. You can easily apply the product yourself in no more than five minutes. There’s definitely a learning curve as you get comfortable with the product (as with any product), but once you get the hang of it and discover the best looks for your brows and your face, you’ll never even consider using another eyebrow pencil again!
