Brow Know-How

91955776.jpg 

Want to know how to acheive the perfect brows?  Try these 3 simple steps!! (I’ve got it all down except the not plucking above the brow…I always have a few I’ve gotta pluck!) 

  • Trace: Use a white eye pencil to outline your ideal brow shape, then plucking hairs outside the line.
  • Pluck: Only tweeze beneath and between the brows. (Most pros prefer slant-tip tweezers) Removing hairs above can result in a lower arch.
  • Perfect: Use a pencil the shade of your brows to fill in gaps, blen with brow powder two shades lighter and set with.
