Thanks to a certain Cara Delevingne, eyebrows are big news in the beauty world – and with good reason. When shaped well, eyebrows can sculpt your face and open up the eye area. If your brows are in need of some TLC, take at look at our definitive guide to all things eyebrows:
Have eyebrows shaped by a professional
When it comes to eyebrow grooming, shaping them well is an essential first step. For many of us, this means visiting a professional. There are several options you can take here, you could get them tweezed, waxed or threaded. Here at Beauty Resource, our favourite method is threading as it is incredibly precise. Once you have the right shape in place you can maintain your brows at home – visit a professional now and again though just to keep them in check.
Which brow shape should I go for?
When it comes to choosing a brow shape, consider your face shape.
- Round faces look best with angled brows with a high arch as this makes the face look longer.
- Long faces look more balanced with low-arched brows.
- Square faces suit thick, bold eyebrows perfectly.
Maintain at home
Most of us opt for tweezing or waxing at home to remove stray hairs and keep brows looking tidy. If you do tweeze, ensure you are using a pair of tweezers that are sharp and slanted. Another tip is to wait until after a hot shower or bath before tweezing or waxing as your pores will be more open (this should make it less painful!).
Add some definition
Whether you have overplucked or have naturally fair hair, using a touch of make-up can really help define your brows. There are hundreds of products out there especially designed to boost your brow – one of our favourites is the Shavata brow perfector (£19.50).
