Maintaining your eyebrows can end up at the bottom of the beauty regiment, and sometimes it takes a close look in the mirror after a little while of skipping this step to realize how necessary it is (eep!)! Artistry by Danika shows us how to avoid overgrown brows with this simple shape up. These easy steps prove shaping your brows doesn’t have to be a dreaded task. From where brows should start, to how far they should reach, Danika tells us what we need to know to prep the forgotten part of our eyes, before we add the eye makeup.
1. Brush your brows upward using a brow brush.
2. Next, trim the hairs that are overlapping your brow line.
3. Next use the same brow brush (or a pencil) to measure where each brow should start. The best way to decide this, is by lining the brush up with the outer corner of your nose. Where the brush hits at the top, is where the brow should begin.
4. To measure where the arch should be, align the brush from the outer corner of the nose with the iris.
5. To find where the brow should end, line the brow up from the outer corner of your nose up to the outer corner of your eye.
6. Use tweezers (take this fun set on the go!) to remove any stray hairs that aren’t a part of the “meat” of the brow.
7. Lastly, use a brow powder and brush (I personally love Laura Mercier’s) to fill in any sparse areas. Brow gels are also helpful for holding brows into place.
