As far as I’m concerned, eyebrows are the most important facial feature. The shape of your eyebrows can enhance your appearance by flattering your face shape, balancing your features and framing your eyes.
Just like you do when you have questions about your hair, you can talk to a Root Salon stylist about your eyebrows. Tell us your eyebrow likes, dislikes and how you’d like them shaped.
How to Create the Best Shape for Your Face
Every face has its own unique shape. Use your face as your guide when creating your ideal eyebrow:
- The inner edge of the brow should line up with the outside of the corresponding nostril.
- The highest point of the arch should be just at the outer edge of the eyeball.
- The outer edge of the brow should end at outermost edge of your eye.
And, keep in mind, it’s totally okay if your eyebrows are not symmetrical. Eyebrows are sisters, not twins.
How to Fill in Your Brow
Now that you’ve got the shape, it’s time to deal with sparse areas. It’s not uncommon to need a little help in achieving a fuller, natural-looking brow. We can show you how to fill any gaps with an eyebrow pencil, powder, cream, or eyebrow wax. Here’s the how-to:
- Avoid eyebrow stencils (I think they make the eyebrows look drastic and unnatural).
- Select a color that most flatters your skin tone and hair color.
- Brush eyebrows up.
- Set the brows with eyebrow wax or alcohol free gel.
- Start filling the eyebrow at the outermost part of your brow and work your way to the center.
- Using a clean and flat eyeliner brush, blend the filling of your choice to soften any lines that might have been caused when filling the brow.
- After blending, brush the eyebrow up gently with a clean mascara brush to give the brow an even softer look.
- Finally, touch up the area around the eyebrow with a little concealer to give your eyebrows a defined and flawless look.
Something to Consider
It’s important to know that not everyone is a candidate for waxing. If you are a under any medication for acne such as Accutane or your medication contains Retin A, you cannot be waxed. If you are sunburned, have used Salicylic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide (Proactiv), a hair bleaching system, or are using topical or oral antibiotic you cannot be waxed.
If you are not a candidate for waxing don’t get discouraged! Tweezing is still an option.
And, remember, it’s called tweezing, not plucking. You pluck a chicken, not an eyebrow.
