Why You Should Focus on Eyebrow Shaping Before Anything Else

Eyebrow ShapingYou can have perfectly applied foundation, eye make-up, and lipstick, but if your eyebrows are untamed, it detracts from your look. Pairing flawless make-up with eyebrows that are in desperate need of shaping is difficult. If you start with perfectly shaped brows before you apply your make-up, you will end up with a much better result.

Think of the eyes as artworks and your eyebrows as their frames. The frame makes a big difference to how the artwork looks when displayed. If you have a beautiful picture but a bad frame, the picture will not look as good as it would with a frame that matches its beauty.

Eyebrow shaping does not have to be difficult. You can go to a professional to have them waxed, plucked, or threaded or shape them yourself at home. A good idea, if you want to take care of your own eyebrow maintenance, is to get your eyebrows professionally shaped the first time and then use wax strips or tweezers to maintain them at home. Whenever you see a stray hair start to make its appearance, you can get rid of it.

Beyond waxing, plucking, and threading your eyebrows to perfection, you can further emphasize and enhance their shape by using a pencil or powder to improve their colour and shape. If your hairs are quite sparse, you can fill them in. In order to get a more natural look, go in the direction the hairs lie. If you do not feel like spending that much time and effort on maintenance, a more permanent solution is to opt for microblading, where a professional tattoos your brows semi-permanently to get a certain look and shape. Even if you are not the type of person who wears make-up often, simply shaping your brows can make a big difference to your appearance. If you have not given your brows a lot of attention before, hopefully you will now.
