It doesn’t matter if you’re a bride-to-be, getting your eyebrows ‘on fleek ‘is an absolute fashion requirement for any female. But if you are a bride-to-be, perfect eyebrows become a law you have to abide by if you want to avoid whispers and comments about your makeup look behind your back.
But perfecting eyebrow makeup is never easy. No matter how skilled you are, there are days when your eyebrows will lose symmetry, look unrelated or just plain tacky.
While there is no easy way out of eyebrow makeup, there are a few tips you can use to help you out through the process.
#1: Get the Right Tools
You cannot attempt to do your brows if you don’t have the right tools and product. Purchase a spool brush, tweezers/thread, an angled brush, eyebrow gel, the right shade of eyebrow powder. If you have even one of these missing, it could potentiate a fashion disaster.
#2: Shape the Brows Before Anything Else
It’s pretty rare to have naturally flawless shaped eyebrows. In fact, it’s almost impossible. You’ll have to do some threading or tweezing to shape your eyebrows the way you want it. Stray hairs on your brow bone should be the first to go.
Trends in eyebrow fashion are constantly changing. There was a time you could get away and actually be considered attractive with almost thin to no eyebrows. Now, however, more natural think eyebrows are the norm. And no, we don’t mean the extra thick ones; staying a moderate size will be your best pick of shape.
#3: Don’t Forget to Brush Them
Before applying your eyebrow gel or filling your brows in, always brush the hairs of your brow in an upward direction using your spoolie brush. If you forget to brush, you could have perfectly filled in brows but still look floppy.
#4: Fill in the Right Way
Small strokes are the way to go with eyebrow makeup. Fill in with a lighter shade near the nose end of your eyebrows and build the shade and product up as you reach the other end. Of course, this takes a lot of practice and experimenting with what shade looks best on your brow. That’s why you need to be an expert before you attempt to do your own wedding makeup look.
#5: …But What if I’m Not An Expert?
If you’re not well versed in the art of eyebrow makeup, choose the safer road and hire a professional makeup artist to do your eyebrows. It might be less economical but at least you’ll get your eyebrows on fleek look!
