BROW TINTING

 

Matching the color of your eyebrows to the color of your hair is important. If you dye your hair, you should consider tinting your eyebrows so that both colors go together.

SPECIFIC TIPS

 

  • For pale or thin eyebrows, try tinting as it looks more natural than an eyebrow pencil. Just be sure to use a professional, licensed cosmetologist, and never try tinting at home. You don't want to risk your eyesight, just for beauty!

 

  • Embrace the natural shape of your eyebrows and don't try to change them completely. You are born with the correct eyebrow shape for your face, so let it guide you.

 

  • Preview the look of your eyebrows before shaping by hiding the hairs with a white eyeliner pencil.

 

  • Avoid overdoing eyebrow shaping, as less is truly better. Thin eyebrows tend to make your face look instantly older.

 

  • Tweezing is usually more effective than waxing as the wax process can lead to a change in the hair direction and skin texture if overused.

 

  • Ultimately the point of eyebrow shaping is to adjust the viewer's focus away from your eyebrows, to your eyes instead.

 

  • While it is not preferred to completely change your eyebrow structure, you can make minor changes to what nature recommended in order to alter some eye appearances. For example, remove a few extra hairs from your eyebrows at the starting point to make close-set eyes appear wider.

 

  • Consider permanent makeup techniques if you have very sparse eyebrows.
