Secrets Revealed for Eyebrow Shaping

Shaping your brows can be a tricky job. If you just slipped off your hand in that split seconds. Your hair may not grow back. It was about 8 years ago, i accidentally shaved away part of my brow and it left a small part balded. I guessed most of the girls would have attempted to shape their eyebrows themselves at least once in their lifetime. I try my very best to seek the professional in trimming my eyebrows but due to my busy schedules, i often have to rely myself in trimming.

Eyebrows are a very important features on our face. It changes the look on your face too. If you shaped it too slanted up or archy, you may have that fierce look. Hence, shaping it properly placed an important part in brightening our face.

What shapes are you having now?
First, look at the mirror. Are your eyebrows in attractive shape? Have you got it trimmed the last 2 weeks? How does the thickness look like?
1) Look at the eyebrow thickness
2) They should be wider inside and thinner as it is near to the end
3) Start shaping from the Inner towards the end each time.
4) DO NOT Shape your eyebrow too thin. It will make your face look harsh.
5) If this is your first time shaping your eyebrow, i would strongly suggest you to seek the professional and get it done first. Every day or 2, you can tweeze new stray hairs that pop up. This will help your brow to stay in shape for at least 2 to 3 months.

What to do if you already have Thin Eyebrow?
if you have shaped your eyebrow too thin, not too worry. You still can fill them in with powdered eye shadow on the areas that you want to make it look thicker. Wait for your brow to grow before shaping a new one.

What to do if the "Wild hairs" that grow out are longer than the rest?
Even we continue to tweeze our stray hairs every day or 2. Some of your eyebrow hairs will grow longer than the rest especially the edge of the eyebrows Some even curl.
