We all know the power of a well-groomed brow. After all, they can totally transform our face, which is why they need to be routinely maintained. From minor upkeep’s like threading to more full-on treatments like microblading, our eyebrows are truly spoilt for choice. With this quick brow makeover guide, your brows are bound to look like twins rather than sisters.
Do Your Brow Homework
It all begins with studying your face for the perfect brow. Keep in mind that there’s little room for experimenting when it comes to brows, as it takes months for them to grow back. So assess your brow situation, know whether you want them cleaned up, defined or reshaped, and move on from there. If you’re still unsure, book a consultation with an aesthetician.
Find Your Perfect Brow
Part of your research involves finding the best brow shape and colour based on your face shape and hair colour. For example, high arches suit round faces, whereas subtle arches fit a square face. For colour, go one to two shades lighter or darker than your hair colour, and avoid an overly dark colour if you’ve already got a big, bold brow going on. However, as a rule of thumb, the best brow type is our natural brow after some professional enhancements.
Choose a Method
Brow professionals have various grooming methods for giving you Insta-worthy brows, which is why you need to specify what you want so there are no surprises. For cleaning and reshaping, you can choose between waxing, tweezing or threading, the latter being the most precise and natural. If you’re after a fuller, more defined brow, consider tinting or lamination. For more semi-permanent results, go for microblading.
To ensure a smooth process, avoid trimming or plucking your brows a few weeks prior to your appointment so your aesthetician has enough hairs to work with. It’s best to go in with a freshly washed face, so don’t apply any eye makeup, specifically brow powder, so the artist can easily achieve the optimal shape.
