Maintaining Perfectly Shaped Eyebrows
One of the features that factors into a person’s beauty is his or her eyebrows. It is important that you maintain your eyebrows correctly.
One of the aspects of the face that is considered to either add to or take away from beauty depending on how you take care of it is your eyebrows. Tastefully plucked and shaped eyebrows can make a face appear much cleaner and elegant.
Some people choose to shape their eyebrows at home while others have them tweezed or threaded by a professional. Many beauty salons are specializing in this area because it is in high demand across America.
Some salons focus only on this service when they are located in a big city where there is high demand. If you have never tweezed your eyebrows before, but you are thinking about it, it is generally recommended that you visit a professional to have it done the first time.
By allowing a professional to do it the first time, the correct shape will be set and you will have a template to follow if you decide to tweeze them yourself later on as the hair grows back in. A professional waxing is relatively affordable compared to other beauty related services.
Most of the time, you should be able to get a professional waxing for about $20. However, this price will vary depending on what city you live in and the services that are available.
After you have had a professional do it for the first time, you can maintain the shape yourself so that you do not have spend as much money getting it done at a salon every time the hair begins to grow back in. There are several things you should remember as you begin doing it for yourself.
The first thing that you should know is that the biggest or most common error that is made when it comes to tweezing yourself is that you will do it too often or too much. If you pull out too many hairs, you will be left with an odd shape until the hair completely grows back.
In some cases, this could take several months while in others it will take several weeks. Either way, this is quite a long time to be stuck with your embarrassing mistake.
There is a simple rule that should be followed when it comes to your brows. As you pluck, you should make sure that they stay the same length or a little wider than your eyes.
If you are having trouble determining how wide your eye is, you should take a long eyeshadow brush or a pencil and hold it straight up and down next to the corner of your eye. Where the brush crosses your eyebrow is where it should be plucked to.
You can also hold the pencil straight up and down next to your nose. This will let you know how much you should pluck on the inside of your eye as well.
As you try to define the shape, you will want to make sure that you maintain a natural arch. You do not want to have completely flat brows because this is unnatural and unsightly.
Flat lines over your eyes will not add to your beauty in the way that you were hoping. At the same time, you do not want them to be too arched or it will look funny as well.
If you are not sure where the highest part of the arch should be, take the brush and hold it vertical on the outside of the colored part of your eye. Where the pencil crosses the hair is where the highest point should be.
An arch in this position will draw the most attention to the correct part of your eye and make you appear more beautiful. Of course, another element to developing beautiful eyebrows is to have clean and clear skin.
No matter how perfectly shaped your brows are, they will not look as good if they are surrounded by acne. It is important to make sure that you clean your skin thoroughly twice a day with a soap that matches your skin type.
When you are done cleaning your skin, you will want to brush the hair in your eyebrows in the right direction so that they flow smoothly. In general, you should brush up and out.
Another important tool to have when it comes to plucking yourself is a good pair of tweezers. A pair with a slanted edge is generally the easiest to use for this particular task.
You will also want to make sure that you are working in front of a good mirror with the proper amount of light. As you follow these tips, you will be able to maintain beautiful eyebrows.
