3 Tips to Get Brows Just Right for Your Face

Are eyebrows reeeeeaaally that important? Any beauty expert would scream: YES! Even studies from anthropologists and psychologists have shown brows transcend the beauty world and play both a physiological and psychological role in our daily lives from expressions, face framing and feature definition.  

With these tips, unlock the flawless eyebrows you've been looking for because flawless brows will elevate your look and make you feel that much more beautiful and fierce!

1. Choose Your Groom... but not the husband kind

Whether you prefer to do it yourself or leave it to the pros, there are endless ways to groom your brows. So here's a quick guide:

Tweezing- Can be done at home or professionally 

Pros: DIY savings & amazing precision

Cons: Time-consuming & risks of skin-irritation

Sugaring- Also possible at home, but we don't recommend

Pros: Natural & great for sensitive skin

Cons: Not as precise 

Waxing - We'd leave this one to the pros

Pros: Time-saving & lasting results

Cons: Skin-irritation & possible burning

Threading- Too scared to even think about trying this ourselves

Pros: Reach pesky fine hairs

Cons: Not so great for acne 

2. In case you've wondered, your face matters

No one shape fits all. Eyebrows are the highlight to your face and the "right shape" is a personal (and frankly, important) choice. When making your decision, take your entire face into consideration and not just a new trend. Begin with your brow bone and follow your brows' natural arch. Hairs a little sparse or just need an extra 'oomph' to make the shape pop? Brow pencils, stamps & powders can work magic to enhance that natural beauty of yours!

3. Compliment Yourself, Complement Your Hair Color

Think your brow color is supposed to match your hair color? WRONG! Brow color rule of thumb: If you have dark hair, brow shade should be lighter- optimally, 1 to 2 shades lighter. Lighter hair, play up the color and go darker with your brows; again, about 1 to 2 shades. 

The reasoning? Brows too dark will draw too much focus, and in a weird way. The goal is to accentuate the entire face and the more natural, the better. With brows juuussst dark enough, you will highlight your eyes and complement your hair, whether that's your natural colors or not (shhh, we won't tell).
