In my last post I shared with you 3 top tips on achieving the perfect natural brow.? Once you have achieved the perfect shape for your face, don?t let it go to waste, you need to maintain the grooming. We don?t want to have untamed brows, with unsightly growth so to avoid this follow this regular maintenance routine.
- Using an antiseptic wipe, cleanse your brow area.
- Brush your brows upward as this will reveal all the awkwardly positioned hairs. Then, carefully trim any hairs that stray above the top of your natural arch.? Don’t be too zealous – you will end up with bald spots!
- Always keep an eye on the shape of your brow, ensuring that it begins at your tear duct, arches at the outer edge of your iris and ends at the outer corner of your eye. If need be you can invest in a great eyebrow stencil as pictured below. This will help you maintain the shape!
- Holding the tweezers at a 45 degree angle, pluck any stray hairs below the brow line.? Pull them off in the direction of the hair growth, so you don?t end up breaking the hair.? Remember to always follow your natural brow shape and not over pluck.
- Fill in any bare areas with a brow pencil, using light and quick strokes.? Instead of thickening them with eyebrow pencil, you can fill them with color, subtly and attractively. MAC 208 Angled Brow Brush is a favorite of mine; its precise angled tip provides a great application! Always remember to choose a brow color that compliments and flatters your natural coloring.

Remember that your brows help shape your face and they can either make you look old and harsh or soft and young…
If you do not feel confident plucking your own eyebrows, consider visiting a professional to have them shaped.? Threading is also a great option and several brow bars across Australia offer both threading and tweezing. Going to a professional salon is a good idea if you are not sure what the natural shape of your brow is because you have over plucked them.
Creating the most flattering shape and arch for your eyebrows may be challenging. If you have any questions, please call us for a free consultation or visit www.imageconsultantstraining.com and contact a consultant near you.
