How to get amazing eyebrows?
This morning, I asked my mom: What should I write about on my blog? What would you like to read about? She said: BROWS! She has been struggling with her brows for a while. (She has nice brows though).
So let´s talk about brows today! this post is dedicated to my mother!
First of all, the more NATURAL the BETTER. Always! I think nature is very wise and we were born with the brows that fit us.
The 90´s were awful with that trend of tweezing eyebrows super thin. I never liked that. I used to be proud of my brows even was too much for that time. (I was a kid, but I believed it was right). Just the space in between I had to remove to not to look like Frida Kahlo. (I love her!).
Apart from the nineties, 2016 is the other way around. Painting too much, thick and dark. I´ve seen in so many Instagrams, in Pinterest… also on the streets is the trend that I´ve noticed. Not everyone, but is very common. Really this is so wrong. Don´t do this. Looks like really fake and not flattering.
The shape of the eyebrows is really important, it can really change your facial expression in a good or bad way.
- Not too pointy eyebrows
- Not too black/dark
- Not too long
- Too square on the front
Basically tweeze the least excess hairs. Use a pencil to find out the right shape of your brows.
- The inner edges of the eyebrows are aligned with the outside of the nose.
- From the outside of the nose to the pupil, in your brow is the highest point.
- From the outside of the nose to the corner of the eye, is where the eyebrow ends.
Then you can use different products to groom your eyebrows. (Below I will recommend the brands that I like).
- Pencil for brows (MAC)
- Wax & powder (Browzings, Benefit)
- Brown brow mascara (Benefit)
Personally, to me the pencil is more accurate, drawing like small hair strokes filling empty spaces to make it look natural with a nice shape.
