How to: Shape Brows

 

 

You have seen the difference a great frame can make to a painting.  It is the eyebrows that form a frame for your eyes.  Beautifully groomed eyebrows make a huge difference.  It is possible to transform a face with just tweezers, shadow, a brow brush, and brow gel.  A professional will help you find your ideal shape.  Once the brows have been groomed, it is easy to do your own upkeep.

The Perfect Brow: The start of the brow should be aligned with the inner corner of the eye. The arch is three-quarters of the way across the brow from there.

How to: Shape Brows 

The start of the brow should follow an imaginary line drawn from the outside of the nose to the inside corner of the eye.

Special Cases:

-Nonexistent brows- Use a pencil the color of original brows, and softly draw in the shape.  Layer a complimentary color of powder shadow with a brow     brush to fill in and soften.

-Bare spots-  Bare spots can be filled in with light strokes of pencil or with powder shadow.  If neither works, try layering both.

-Brows too far apart- Brows too far apart can be corrected by filling in missing brow areas with light pencil strokes.  Balance the brows carefully. Layer powder shadow on top.

-Tadpole brows- Tadpole brows can be reshaped with shadow.  Fill them in to create a straight line.

 

It’s easy to keep your brows groomed with our Brow Kit featuring two shadows to define and fill in the brows, a two-sided mirror (with one side magnified) plus a mini tweezer and brow brush.  Light and Dark Brow Kits available.

  2. I am African-American with mid-tone skin…(think beyonce, but a touch darker) I was reading the color chart and noticed Dark Gray works as well for brows..does that work on my skin tone as well?
