As a beauty blogger, one of the first things I notice is a woman’s eyebrows (sometimes men’s eyebrows too, especially the ‘ew’ ones). And I’ve got to say, Indian women have some of the most beautiful eyebrows in the world – and no, that doesn’t mean we should take it for granted. So, I decided to put together the ultimate eyebrow guide for Indian women. This includes every step from tweezing to filling it in.
This chart is a basic idea of the different types of eyebrows. Everyone is born with a certain shape and I prefer that you stick to it. Trying to alter the shape of your eyebrows too much can really ruin the look and cause you to thin it out too much and since we’re past the 90’s and early 2000’s, super thin eyebrows are a no-no. Once you’ve figured out your shape, draw an outline with an eyebrow pencil and make sure both sides are the same. Tweeze outside of this area.
This guide is the most important thing when you’re tweezing or threading your eyebrows. A is the point where your eyebrows should start and C is where they should end. B is the point where your arch should be, no matter how significant your arch is. That can vary depending on your brow shape. The straight D line is the lowest point your brows should reach. Whether you’re getting this done professionally or yourself, don’t pluck over the top of your brows. You need that for a lift.
An eyebrow pencil is only for filling in the gaps. It can come off a little too heavy if used to fill in the entire eyebrow. When you’re picking your brow pencil, avoid black and stick with browns.
Color in your eyeshadows using an angled brow brush and eyeshadow. Never use a black colored eyeshadow either. Stick to shades of brown, depending on how dark or light you want your eyebrows to be. In fact, sometimes, you can go in with a little red or bronze to play around with the color of your brows.
A complete understanding and mastering of these 4 steps will get you gorgeous eyebrows, and really, what else does a woman need in life? This may take a little practice and a lot of patience, but good things do come to those who wait. If you’ve been overlooking your brows or you have any eyebrow-related queries, leave me a question!
