Perfect Eyebrows

Eyebrows, though sometimes taken for granted, makes a big impact on someone's face... It adds strength and definition to our face, hence, badly shaped eyebrows can make a person look either 5 years older, or undergoing menopausal stage, or just having a bad hair day every day... wheeeow... that bad eh??? So let's be friendly with them... Don't pull them all off!!! Stop going to the threading/waxing section of the salon every week... Remember, it takes 3 weeks to 1 month to have those eyebrows back again so you can have them reshaped... For some of us who can't take the agony of threading, this one from Sephora is worth trying... For US $65.00, you already have an Anastasia 5-piece eyebrow kit which will surely solve your eyebrow dilemmas... Providing you with just the basics, the Five Item Brow Kit provides you with these indispensable brow-shaping tools; Tweezers, Brow Powder, four Brow Stencils, one Duo Brush (Angled Cut / Spooley), and Brow Gel.


And since it is from Anastasia, I think it is worth believing... Here are some tips in having perfectly shaped eyebrows...


BEFORE ANASTASIA

First, apply the Stencil. Choose the stencil that aligns with both the front and the tail of the brow, (points A and B) and has as much of your natural brow hair inside the brow cutout as possible.

A is the point through the center of the nostril directly up to where it intersects the end point of the stencil cutout.


B is the point through the edge of the nose diagonally to the opposite end of the stencil cutout.

Fill in the arch with the Angled Brush. Arch and fill in the stencil shape with Brow Powder using an Angled Brush.


Tweeze hair.
-Using the Tweezers, remove hair outside the stenciled area

-Apply After Tweeze Cream onto the skin that has experienced hair removal to calm and soothe the pores as well as eliminate redness.


-Apply the Brow Gel.
Using the brush on the applicator, brush upward to condition and hold the shape of the brow all day.

-The Highlighter is applied underneath the eyebrow, along the brow bone and blended in to lighten the skin.


After ANASTASIA Perfect Brow Kit

See??? That's what I call perfectly shaped eyebrows... By the way, the brow powder comes in different shades also, how convenient, eh??? You can choose from:

Ash Blonde

Medium Ash



Strawburn


Brunette



And lastly, here are some more useful information in attaining perfectly shaped eyebrows....

Well groomed eyebrows enhance your beauty.

You should pluck eyebrows before bedtime so any redness will disappear overnight. In shaping your eyebrows use your facial features.

Use a pair of slant edge tweezers which grip hairs easily. Comb hairs one way and then the other to remove loose hairs.

You should pluck hairs between the brows and any stragglers. Never remove the hairs from above your eyebrows.

Pluck each hair individually close to the root. Work in the direction of the growth.

Always avoid over plucking. In defining your eyebrows choose a shade similar to your natural hair colour.

When using a pencil you should apply in small, feathered strokes. Starting at the inner corner work outwards.

Blend the colour with a brush. To tame stray hairs just use hair gel and comb through to neaten.

There you have it... I think we should just always keep in mind that eyebrows define the face of a person - they can either soften or strengthen the look... And I think I'd go for the softened look...
