The truth is that we never recommend you grooming your own eyebrows all on your own without our professional help. The first reason is that we may go out of business, and the second reason is that you are going to mess them up
and double our work when you come back.
Although, you might be feeling stressed over the state of your brows these days. Salons and many other beauty services across the world have been closing in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, visiting professionals and having them breathe too close to your face is simply off the table right now, and no one's really know how long it may take for all of us to go back to normal days, so let’s get started with all of our eyebrow tips and tricks.
• Tweezers- surely you all have a pair of tweezers at home which you should know they are the worst enemy of your beautiful eyebrows, but in this very specific case, we can use them.
• Spoolie Brush- disposable mascara wand also does the same job.
• Disinfection- make sure to clean the tools with alcohol or any disinfection before you use them around your clean makeup free skin.
• Cotton balls- you need to clean the skin before and after and also wipe the eyebrow hair away during the work.
• Lighting- it is important that you see exactly what hairs you are pulling out while avoiding amazing tempting magnified mirrors of any kind.
• Eyebrow gel- using the gel is optional, only if you don’t feel so experienced to do it freehand.
• Brow Pen- we need to make your brows look flawless and fuller. We use Long Lasting Brow Pen
Okay, I’m assuming you clean all your tools and your skin, now using the Spoolie brush to brush your brows up and down repeatedly, brush the hairs from the inner edge of your eyebrow to your arch upwards. Always remember to hold the scissors parallel to your brows and brush in the same direction the hair grows, and the same rule applies for tweezing. Trim the hairs that reach farther up than the top edge of your eyebrow, making sure to snip carefully and slowly to ensure no tragic mishaps even if it takes longer just to be on the safe side. Again, the key is to cut on a straight angle, using the natural shape of your brow as a guide, do not trim too deep, do not follow where the hair goes, let the long hair reach your scissors blades. Don’t trim too much or your brows would look patchy.
Mapping and Plucking
Now that your brows are shorter and cleaner and somehow under control, it’s time to get rid of all those unwanted hairs.
If possible, take a mirror near a window with even lighting on your face, and seriously avoid magnifying mirrors because you can only see a field of tiny hair versus the actual shape and what it’s doing for your entire face. Consider a decent, not too dreamy, and simple shape to start with. You can even draw your ideal shape with a pencil and try to get a visual gist of where you should be focusing on later when plucking. However, for a safe result, I still recommend staying farther from these boundaries.
Now that you have a perfect vision and lighting go ahead and pull all those hairs out of line and if they seem too risky it’s always safer to keep them around. Do not overpluck, remember you’re only doing this to keep your brows reasonable.
Fake a Fuller Finish
Looks like trimming and tweezing was a success, now we can use our magical pen to make those bald spots and lighter eyebrows look bolder. Eyebrow products can take your brows from good to perfect if used correctly. It's just that little touch you need to frame your face in a more defined way. Tinted or clear brow gels make easy everyday helpers as well, but for now, let’s focus on pencils and powder. They are your way to get filled-in brows that still look soft and natural.
