So when you’re trying to get your brows to look better in the meantime, here’s how to save your brows with these little fixes to make them look a lot better in the process. In the process of making your eyebrows look better while growing in, it’s the little things that make a difference. Remember, it’s what you keep that matters, not what you take off.
HOW DO YOU CLEAN UP YOUR BROWS WHEN YOU’RE TRYING TO GROW THEM IN?
To make your overly tweezed eyebrows look better, try by just trimming them. Put the tweezers down and see which hairs are way too long. Start by brushing the hair up and slightly sideways with a clean mascara wand. Take your manicure or brow scissors and very lightly, trim just 1 hair at a time. Not across. Not a bunch at once. Just one. The trick is to trim them to slightly above your brow. Not all the way down to the brow line. Just above by 1/4″. That’s it. Brush them back into place.
FILL THEM IN FOR THICKER BROWS
If you want your brows to look thicker in the meantime, that’s where brow makeup comes into play. I’m always amazed at how many clients want great eyebrows, but they don’t want to do anything to make them look better in the meantime. The goal is to go soft and lighter than your actual brow hair. Here are 3 types of brow makeup you can choose from.
Brow Pencil. Pencils are great if you have a lot of spaces and gaps still trying to grow in. Choose a shade that’s 1 shade lighter than your brows. This allows your eyebrows to look softer, shaded in, and more natural looking. Painted on is so yesterday.
Brow Mascara. Looking for the most natural looking brow makeup you can do? Brow mascara is the trick. Pick a shade as close to your brow hairs as possible. A brow mascara will pick up the newly growing in and lighter hairs . It does a great job in making brows look thicker and fuller because you actually see all the hairs you have growing in. Instant perfection.
Brow Powder. This is the softest brow makeup you can do. Go softer, lighter than your hair color and try to think of your shadow as just that, a shadow. Fill in only where needed and buff and blend with a super soft spoolie brush.
