Powder Power

Powder eyeshadows and brow powers can provide great effects. However, it’s important to use them effectively. Make sure to choose a soft matte powder and use a liner brush (thin) or soft wedge to put them on.

Start putting on the powder in the middle of the eyebrow. Then work out towards the tip of the brow, and then move in the direction of the beginning of the brow. Use light and short strokes in between the eyebrow hairs. Then add a little pressure if you want a stronger color when you define the bottom part of the eyebrow.

Use a toothbrush (clean) to soften the powder’s color and to groom the eyebrow. If the brow is out of control, you could add a clear eyebrow gel. That will help to keep them in the right place. Another option is to put a little hairspray onto a toothbrush, then comb it through your eyebrow in order to have more hold as well as control.

The Right Length

Getting the length of the eyebrows right is definitely one of the most important issues. It’s important that the eyebrows follow the eye’s entire length, but shouldn’t go into the temple region. The front region shouldn’t dip below the brow’s back region. This could happen in how you draw on the brows or tweezer them. However, it creates the result that you’re frowning even when you’re not. It also over-stresses the back part of the eye moving downward.

Tweezing Trouble

If you tweeze your eyebrows, keep in mind that if you keep doing that there’s a chance that within time they won’t grow back. The reason is that eyebrow hair is quite sensitive to injuries. If you keep plucking the hairs you can permanently damage the root of the hair, which can in turn prevent hair from growing back ever. This is definitely an important issue to consider if you start plucking your eyebrows. If you keep doing it within time it might be the last time your pull the hairs.

Color is Key

You should use an eyebrow powder or pencil that matches up with the color of your natural eyebrow color. However, an exception is if you have pale/blonde eyebrows. In that case you should use a color that’s 1-2 shades darker than your natural color of your eyebrows. This will help to prevent the blond eyebrows from looking like they’re washed out. This is especially true when you wear other eye makeup.

Also, don’t put your eyebrow color over ¼ an inch away from where the natural eyebrow hair growth ends. This could highlight the fact that there’s no eyebrow there. Keep in mind that eyebrow color should look soft and shaded. It should not have the appearance of a straight, rigid line.

Bringing Back Brows

After plucking hairs from different parts of the body, the time needed to grow back differs based on where it was plucked. For example, it takes about 4 months for hair on the scalp to grow back, but about 2 months for plucked eyebrows to grow back fully. This is an important issue to consider if you’re considering plucking your eyebrows. The reason is that if you’re not happy with the results you will have to wait a while for the hairs to grow back. This is important to remember since you shouldn’t expect the eyebrows to grow back overnight, although they won’t take forever either.

If you want perfect eyebrows you can achieve that by following some basic steps. They include the above-mentioned tips for having great eyebrows.
