Brows 101

Thanks to Cara Delevingne, brows are all the rage right now. Gone are the days of tweezing and shaping with dark pencils! Natural, thick brows are so in right now. I have a few tips and tricks on how to get perfect, natural brows.

The Length

Growing out your brows can be frustrating and mortifying. It’s not going to happen overnight, which means you’re going to have to experience the awful in-between stage – like when you’re trying to grow out your bangs. But, stick with it because the results are fabulous. Depending on how quickly your hair grows, this could take 1-6 weeks. As long as you’re good at maintaining them, it shouldn’t be too traumatic for you – and everyone else.

The Shape

This is the most important part. This is the difference between looking like you have natural browns and looking like you have un-groomed brows. I like to use tweezers – they are the easiest and fastest way to get the job done. Also, they allow you to have more control. The best way to shape your browns is to draw, with a brow pencil, the shape you would like them to have. Then, it’s easy! Just pluck any hairs on the outside of the line. At the beginning of growing out your brows, try not to get tweezer crazy, otherwise you will never reach brow paradise. 

The Thickness

While many people think growing out their eyebrows will give them super luscious, thick brows, it doesn’t always happen. Sometimes, eyebrow hairs grow too sparsely. This creates gaps in the brows, but it’s super easy to fix. Just grab a brow pencil or even an eye shadow and angled brush and start filling in the gaps. The key here is to only focus on the gaps. Also, a tip to get the most natural looking brows is to use short strokes and go against the grain of your hair, lifting the hairs and adding color directly onto the skin, not the hair.
