Eyebrows: Some tips and tricks
I am starting this series where I will be sharing some secrets, tips or quick fixes that can come as a savior for us. They can be anything from skin care, hair, makeup etc and etc. Girls!! I will appreciate your inputs too, if you want to share something.
First topic in the series would be Eyebrows:
Try to fill in with powders as they give more natural finish and are easily blendable rather than pencils that make harsh strokes. Use a clear mascara wand afterwards to blend the filled in brows. During rainy season, leave the powders and go for brow filling creams or gels or even the pencils will be better as powders can wash off but creamy texture of pencils and gels will be long lasting even during the monsoons.
Tame your eyebrows
If you have unruly eye brows and you do not have brow gel then spray some hair spray on a clear mascara wand and just brush it across your eye brows. It will help them stay in place.
If you do not have hair spray at the moment then, try using some Vaseline, just a tiny amount on your finger tip is more than enough. Swipe it over your brows. It will help them stay in place all day.
If you are amongst those who like to tweeze their brows on their own, (count me in) then try to rub ice cubes first on that area as the skin gets tight and hairs can be easily pulled off. Always tweeze from the direction of the hair growth, that way, it will be less painful.
Brush them up
Before filling your brows, comb them up so that they look clean and neat.
As a preventive measure, try using some oil like castor, coconut or almond on your eyebrows at night to condition them.
Thick is in
Do not tweeze or shape your brows too thin as thicker brows look youthful on most of the face. If you have thin or sparse brows then try to get rid of the extra hairs only.
You may get carried away by arched, angled eyebrows that some supermodels or celebrities may have but it is always better to stick to your natural eyebrows shape as altering them too much can make your face very harsh looking. Minor tweaks should be the key!
At night try to massage the eyebrows!! Really?? Yup, use your middle and ring finger and gently swipe the fingers across the brows right from the beginning towards the ends, with gently raising it upwards. This helps relaxing the eye area.
So, these very the eyebrows related tips from me. Next Friday the topic would be mascara.
