Today, I will be sharing "my way" on how to trim and groom the brows the easiest way! Keep in mind that it takes practice, patience and a whole lot of effort! I hope my mini tutorial will help you guys who are scared to fix their own brows!
If I haven't stress enough, well, let me say this again. Eyebrows can make or break your appearance and I learned that a bit too late! I'm not asking you to start staring at your brows in front of the mirror right this very moment and start plucking like there's no tomorrow! Since this tutorial is done for beginners, here are some tips you should at least consider before trimming and grooming your brows.
Have your brows shaped, cut and groomed by professionals! Professionals consider your face shape before grooming your brows and the right arch and thickness are also considered to match your face. You can go for an inexpensive Php50.00 (approx $1.00) eyebrow shaving from neighborhood salon. If you're used to having your brows done, you may try Benefit Brow Bar or Browhaus for eyebrow waxing needs. Or if you have super high tolerance to pain, you may also give Eyebrow Threading a try!
I've done all three, and my favorite would be eyebrow waxing but due to time constraint, I always end up in our neighboring salon for a quick shave at a super affordable price!
Now that you took your pick on how to have your brows professionally done, what's next? Well, let's start taking care of the perfect shape to prolong the professional visit and trust me, it helps save your hard-earned money!
Stand in front of the mirror and check the "original" shape done by the professional. Always start with clean brows free from brow products.
Use any eye cream or moisturizing face cream. I picked Clinique's Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief.
Apply tiny amount of the moisturizer below your brows as shown on photo below. The reason for this is to prevent friction between the skin and blade.
I personally prefer the short eyebrow shavers which I got from Daiso. Gently lift your brows upwards and shave the short eyebrows that are just starting to grow.
With Charm Dream Brow Duo, use the spoolie side and brush the brow hairs and check if you missed any "new hair growth".
Step 5: (optional)
This step is optional and is needed only if your brows tend to grow longer than usual. With a spoolie brush, gently brush the inner corner of your brows upwards. Using a small scissors, trim only the sharp edges of the hair.
Continue doing so on the mid-section of your eyebrows...
last but not the least, the outer edge of your brows.
Some are more comfortable trimming the brows directly without the help of eyebrow comb or spoolie. This can be done only if you're used to trimming your own brows!
