We've all spotted those women with the perfect set of eyebrows and wondered, how exactly do they do it? While those blessed with clean, groomed arches definitely take steps to achieve them, the process is not as extensive and involved as you'd think. However, there are a few key steps to take in order to achieve the best arches of your life. Ahead, the things that women with perfect eyebrows always do.
If you think you can identify the exact shape of your brows by simply looking in the mirror, think again. Getting yourself an eyebrow brush can help you see the shape better. You'll be able to point out anything that may need to be trimmed and tweezed.
There are several methods you can follow, when it comes to grooming your eyebrows. However, you have to find the one that works best for your hair texture and skin. Some women can't do traditional waxing, so they turn to threading instead. Others don't enjoy threading and stick to tweezing at home. We also have new trends like microblading that are also growing in popularity, but aren't for everyone. It's all a process of trial and error.
It seems every day there's a new eyebrow product being rolled out. This is another opportunity in which to test the waters. Maybe you have a go-to eyebrow gel that sets them perfectly but you're dying to try the latest filling powder. Try them all, even if you already have a favorite. You'll likely find a new item that serves as a solid substitute or new go-to.
Having excessively long hair fibers is one of the main reasons brows don't look their best. Some hairs have the tendency to outgrow the others and end up looking unruly and noticeable, so this is where trimming comes in. Getting yourself a pair of eyebrow shears will make this so much easier. Just brush your brows upward and see which strands stick out from the rest—those are the ones to snip.
One of the biggest eyebrow blunders is over-tweezing. Plucking out too many hairs can cause sparse areas and noticeable bare spots. Instead, when you notice that hair is growing in specific areas, go ahead and pluck them out right away. If you wait too long, you'll likely grab too many since the new ones are no longer noticeable.
You've likely heard the saying "eyebrows are sisters, not twins," and it's actually true. There's no way that both of your brows can look entirely identical. Sure, you can get them shaped the same but one is likely a bit longer than the other, or the arches are in a different place—but that's okay! Our faces aren't symmetrical and neither are our eyebrows. What's important is that they're groomed and shaped how you like them.
