10 quick tricks to get your best brows


 
We all have those times when we can't make it to meet our in-the-know ladies at the salon to deal with our eyebrow emergencies. Your peepers just don't pop the way the do when they're perfectly shaped.  Good thing GL has your back.  We've got all the do's and don'ts of eyebrow maintenance.

DO pluck your brows to fit your face shape.  For a round face, a high arch works best.  Ovals should go with a more natural curve. Square divas lean toward an arch with a sharp peak. And good ol' heart shapes need a rounded curve and a sharp end.

DON'T go crazy with those tweezers! Only pluck below the brow, never above, and your brow should only taper off slightly towards the end. No tadpole brows, please!

DO plan out beforehand.  Take a lightly colored eyeliner pencil and mark these spots:
*Hold the pencil against the side of your nose and mark where the pencil meets your brow. From here, aim the tip of the pencil to the outer corner of your eye and mark there where it meets the brow. Then, mark the highest point on your brow. Find this by Holding the pencil in front of your eye, and lining it up with the outer side of your iris. The highest part of your arch should be there.

DON'T wander too far away from your natural shape.  If you normally have thick brows, don't tweeze those babies super thin.

DO brush them out pre-pluck.  If you don't have a brush made for this endeavor, whip out a spare toothbrush.  It works just as well.

DON'T expect your right eye to look exactly the same as your left.  They won't look entirely symmetrical, unless you used a stencil, and that's just not a good idea.

DO call in a helper for those tricky spots.  Hand them slim cuticle scissors and have them trim up any pieces that stick out.

DON'T create too much of an arch that it just looks unnatural.

DO pause every couple of plucks to step back a foot and take a look at your work. Brush off your brows and switch sides.  You'll be less inclined to over-pluck one spot if you trade off sides.

DON'T get caught up in the mirror.  Use a normal mirror, not a heavily magnified one. Looking in closely can cause you to lose your symmetry.
