Nothing transforms a face like the shape of your eyebrows, which is why it’s important to give your arches the right kind of attention they deserve. Many of you have reached out to me over the months asking questions about my own brows and how I go about making them look the way they do. So today, we’re talking brows!
Keep reading for your crash course in the do’s and don’ts of getting the best brows ever.
I am a classic tale of a girl growing up in the late ‘90s who took tweezing too far. Fast forward lots of years and I’m a grown woman with little to no brow hair. Now, a couple years back I did do my brows a favor and had them microbladed (which is a semi permanent tattoo) and I love the results of that. However, I still need to fill in the shape on makeup days to help them pop a little. I’ll talk about that in a bit!
Everyone has different eye and face shapes which means making your brows look their best takes a customized approach. There are three main components to creating a brow shape that looks natural for your face.
When I first started filling in my brows, I found it helpful to make marks on my brows in these places so I knew where to connect everything. It also gives you the most natural shape for your face.
I will point out that if you, like me, overdid it on your brows and you wish you had more hair, the RevitaLash brand that we carry makes a brow conditioner! This will help feed your brows and help fill in holes where hair is sparse and lacking. I have not yet used this product as I’ve been happy with my microblading, but I have SO many testimonials from clients and coworkers alike that are in love with the fullness of their brows thanks to RevitaLash.
We have three brow tools that I love (and use) to help achieve that #browsonfleek look:
This the fun but often frustrating part—practice, practice, and more practice (and tons of patience, of course)! Taking pictures of yourself shows clearly if one brow is off or not. I took a ton of selfies at first just to see where I needed to adjust my work. I now could probably draw on brows blindfolded!
