Shaping your eyebrows

Shaping your eyebrows-1

Eyebrows are the frame of our eyes. Shapely eyebrows enhance the eyes. They should be plucked or threaded in the desired shape regularly for a neat look. If they are over plucked, the gaps can be filled in with eyebrow or kohl pencil, black or brown depending on the color of your brow (you could try a shade darker also). The other way is to use brow powder or eye shadow with an angled brush to fill in the sparse spots. After filling the gaps, the brows should be combed in the right direction with an eyebrow brush; a comb or toothbrush will also do. Brow gel in the end will give a finished smooth look.

A little goes a long way. The eyebrows are perfectly threaded, the lashes are curled and eyes are lined with kohl.

Don’t overdo the filling of the eyebrows with a dark color. The above picture is a good example of over-filled eyebrows.

Lashes highlight the eyes. Long healthy lashes are on the wish list of every woman. We can be our worst enemy when it comes to losing lashes. Wear and tear is caused by extensive rubbing of the eyes and eyelids. Sleeping without removing eye makeup, especially mascara, can prove disastrous in the long run. The stiffness of the mascara by morning will lead to fall out of lashes. And for some who have sensitive skin, wearing waterproof mascara is a strict no no. It is more difficult to remove and may result in harsh rubbing, leading to unwanted friction and falling out of the dry lashes.

Always condition your lashes with petroleum jelly or castor oil. One can also buy a lash primer which has to be applied before coating lashes with mascara.

Never coat your lower lashes with too much mascara and especially not like the picture above; don’t try and make these clusters, they look hideous.

Here is a trick for tired eyes. A white or beige liner or eye crayon can be put on the lower lash line to open up the eyes instantly.
