We are aware of the effect of our eyebrows on the rest of the face and especially on the eyes. Our eyebrows play an important role, with more sophisticated, trendy or natural designs. At Beter we like all designs, although we are fans of the natural finish, the one that adapts to the shape of our eyebrows and makes the face more harmonious. Here are some simple tips so that you can keep your brows in shape with a professional finish during this break from the routine. Eyebrow design is not just for experts,
What do you need?
- Micellar water
- Cotton wool
- Eyebrow pencil, volumizing gel (in case you want to make them up)
- Eyebrow brush with goupillon
Step by Step
Define the shape you want to give your eyebrow. Take a well-sharpened eyebrow pencil, place it against the side of the nostril reaching up to the eyebrow and mark just below the brow as the first reference point, this way we will know what hairs to remove between the brows.
At this point we must take into account the separation of the eyes, since if they are very close together, more hairs can be removed (without going too far) to create the optical effect of more separated eyes, and on the contrary, if the eyes are very separated, it will be necessary to avoid plucking the area too much
The second reference point defines the arch of the eyebrow. This point is where the pencil is placed on the side of the nostril and coincides with the iris of the eye or the pencil crosses the last third of the eye. The point where the pencil crosses the eyebrow is where you should mark.
And the third point of reference, the one that indicates the length of the eyebrow, is where the pencil reaches from the side of the nose to the outer corner of the eye and then to the eyebrow, as seen in the image below. Also mark this point.
Remember that the first reference point must always be at the same level or higher than the last point, that is, the beginning of the eyebrow must not be lower than the end of it.
With the help of a goupillon eyebrow brush, comb your eyebrows while looking in the mirror, do it in different directions as it will be easier for you to see the hairs that need to be removed.
With tweezers, remove the hairs that come out of the line you have drawn previously. Pull decisively in the same direction as the hair growth. Be careful to avoid touching the upper part of the eyebrow. Keep in mind that it is better to go from less to more, adapting the result to the effect you are looking for.
As you go through this process, stop a few times to check your progress and comb your brows up, down and to both sides again to see what shape you're getting. If there is any hair that is too long, you can cut it with the help of small scissors. After plucking, disinfect the area with a little alcohol and refresh it with micellar water or aloe vera to help reduce any redness that may have occurred in the case of more sensitive skin.
This step is completely optional. Sometimes, even if we are not going to leave the house, seeing that we look good makes us feel good, and that alone makes it worthwhile. It’s up to you, you don't need makeup to be pretty. If you do want to use a little makeup, use the previous eyebrow pencil to cover the empty spaces that may have remained. Always opt for shades that are similar to yours or, failing that, a little lighter, never darker, as this will harden the look. Apply the pencil in small touches, covering any spaces that may have remained and comb with the goupillon of your brush or pencil to better blend the colour with your eyebrows. Finish with a touch of setting gel or volumizing gel, the latter will give your eyebrows more density, especially if they are sparse.
We hope that these tips have helped you to define your eyes and give your look a professional finish.
