- Brush on a mid-taupe/ grey-ish powder shadow to color your brows: This is most flattering for almost all brows, at this stage, to define them.
- Extend the brows outwards, not downwards: You need to follow the natural line of the brow. If you need to recreate the ‘end’ of the brow with make-up that may have lost with the age, make sure the line wings out towards the temples rather than down.
- Brush your brows to groom them: For many of us, brow hairs are literally all over the place. Brush them using brow brush/ old mascara wand washed thoroughly, apply colour, brush gently again. It gives a much more natural effect.
- Brush them again in case you use face powder: If you use face powder after your brush your brows, you need to brush them again else they’ll look “dusty” and “clean” brows is something really important.
- Try a stencil: This creates a stronger brow look. Choose a shape that’s most flattering for you, then literally fill it with brow pencil.
- Balance the brows with face makeup: More on your eyes means subtler brows; less eye make-up means you can play up your brows.
Eyebrow Facelift: ‘Clean’ and ‘Tidy’ brows are essential to a glossy, groomed look. If you have thick brows, then getting them professionally shaped can be very helpful. Even if the brows become sparse, a professional can often improve the shape.
There is tweezing, waxing, threading, depilatories - a bunch of professional ways of shaping and tidying your brows. A word of warning: avoid over-plucking, if your brows are scanty, neglect them for a bit; applying olive oil or Vaseline every night may help them grow.
