Your Ultimate Guide To Eyebrows: There Should Be Two
One of my favorite ways to procrastinate is to get lost on Instagram, specifically makeup tutorials. Over the past few years we have seen something of an eyebrow renaissance, from halo eyebrows to squiggle brows to - yes, this is real - the high heel brows. The latest trend is literally splitting hairs all over my Instagram feed: Fishtail eyebrows.
While I do find these trends somewhat fascinating, I feel we need to come closer to reality. Today I will be sharing the ultimate guide to eyebrows: there should be two.
Your Ultimate Guide To Eyebrows: There Should Be TwoWhile I will not be giving you a how-to thread eyebrow DIY tutorial, we will review maintenance and products. Thick natural eyebrows are not just for those born with a perfectly carved pair. With proper maintenance and a little know how you can work wonders to achieve the perfect look.
DIY Eyebrow MaintenanceYou can easily maintain your brows if you are not into all that waxing or threading. You simply remove the hair that is not in your natural brow shape. If you are not sure of your natural brow shape, take a spoolie brush and comb your eyebrows up revealing the bottom of your brow.
You will be able to see your natural bottom brow line and can clean up any hairs that are outside of it. Then comb your brow hair down to see the top arch. You will do the same thing and clean up any hairs outside of your natural brow arch. Remove any hair in between your eyebrows; no unibrow, please. When cleaning up the front of your brow, be sure to not go past the inner corners of your eyes.
I have naturally long eyebrow hairs, so if you are like me, you may need to trim them. I simply comb them up and trim the hair that is super long. You never want to trim lower than your top brow line when the hair is combed up.
If you have thinner brows and want to make them thicker, or fill in spaces, the MK Lash & Brow Building Serum would be perfect for you.
Best Eyebrow ProductsThis is where it can get overwhelming. I know I was overwhelmed until I found exactly what worked for me. There are a lot of different brow products on the market now. You have brow pens, pencils, volumizing gels, pomades, powders, serums, waxes, highlighters, tints, shapers, and more. It's a lot. My best advice is to start with the oldies-but-goodies.
Keep it simple with a brow pencil. Brow pencils are easy to use, travel well, create a natural look, and are the best "starter brow product." When choosing the right shade, always think lighter rather than darker. You don't want sharpie brows.
When using a brow pencil, you want to lightly flick the pencil in the same direction as the hair grows and create tiny little lines. Then brush through your brows with a spoolie brush to blend everything, and you will have a natural looking full brow. If you have brows that don't like to stay perfectly brushed down, then you can set them with a wax or gel. I'm a big fan of brow gels. They are super easy to use and keep my brows from going all wild n' crazy.
If you don't feel like you need to fill in your brows, then a simple comb through with some clear brow gel will give you a perfect brow in one easy step.
Brow pomades and powders will give you a lot of volume and/or can densely fill in your brows if you don't have a lot of hair to work with. These are great to give you a natural looking brow when your brow hair is really light or sparse. They can be a little tricky to work with at first, there is a learning curve with these products, but once you master the technique applying these types of products is super quick.
