How to Shape Your Best Brows

How to Shape Your Best Brows

Full, well-shaped brows can make such a difference when it comes to looking healthy, natural and youthful. (Plus, well-shaped brows mean you can usually get away with wearing less makeup. True story!)

The Key to perfect brows

The key to brows - whether you’re plucking them, filling them in, or both - is restraint. Do less than you think you need to, stand back to evaluate, and only go back in to do more if you’re absolutely sure.

Plucking your own brows is doable at home, but unless you’re super confident, go at least once to a salon or makeup counter to have them plucked; once an expert creates a shape you like, you can follow it at home with tweezers (and a bit of face oil, which can soften the hairs and make them easier to pluck). Wait a month to six weeks between tweezings.

Filling in brows - whether you’re looking to just darken them or create the appearance of more hair - is more intuitive, but again, take it slow. Effortless-looking makeup definition is best accomplished by many small marks or brushstrokes, as opposed to drawing a single bold line.

How to choose the best shade

To choose the most flattering shade, find a tint that’s a notch lighter than your natural hair colour. Though it’s easy to imagine darker will define better, a pigment that’s too dark for your complexion can look harsh. Note that gels and creams are generally subtler in terms of pigment, while powders and pencils tend to be more intense. A gel can add volume and sculpt brows all at once, so choose whichever type of formula seems easiest, most natural, and, of course, prettiest to you.
