Do you still not believe us? Continue reading for the step-by-step instruction on how to groom and style bushy brows for a beautiful appearance that will make you envious.
STEP #1: PICK YOUR SHAPE
Prior to anything else, you’ll want to figure out what kind of form you want for your brows. Allow your brows to develop naturally for a few weeks before attempting to shape or fill them in. It will be irritating at the moment, but it will provide you with a thick, complete canvas to work with once you’ve decided on your exact form and design. Speaking of which, be sure to select a form that is proportional to your face shape, as this will be the most flattering for your overall beauty appearance. Are you unsure about where to begin?
STEP #2: TRACE YOUR SHAPE
After you’ve selected the best brow shape for you, draw it out with an eyebrow pencil to make sure it looks natural. Make no effort to draw a perfect brow contour; the form you create with your pencil will serve as a guide for trimming and tweezing later on. You may use the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Eyebrow Mechanical Pencil to draw out your brows because it has an ultra-fine 0.5mm tip that will result in accurate, defined lines. Feel free to get as heavy-handed as you need with your outline; you’ll be washing it off afterward, so there’s no need to be concerned about looking messy.
STEP #3: TRIM AWAY
Following that, it’s time to make the cut! Even if this isn’t quite the chop you’re picturing, trimming your bushy brows is essential. For this, use a spoolie to brush your brow hairs upward in a vertical direction, starting at the bottom of your brow. Use a tiny pair of scissors designed particularly for brow grooming to clip any brow hairs that fall outside of your parameters once you’ve finished. Keep in mind that little is more in this situation. Trim only a few hairs at a time, and remember that you may always trim more if necessary. On the other hand, if you trim too much, you won’t be able to get it back!
If your hairs begin to fall back into place, continue to brush them upward. By cutting long hairs, you’ll be able to avoid the problem of stray hairs that wind up in awkward positions during the day.
STEP #4: TWEEZE LIKE A PRO
Using tweezers to shape unruly brows is the next step in the grooming process, which you can probably anticipate by now. Carefully pluck away any hairs that fall outside of your brow boundaries to get a clean, polished brow appearance. Make careful to tweeze in natural light while using a magnifying mirror to ensure that no (stay) hair is left unattended.
STEP #5: REMOVE YOUR OUTLINE
You have finished grooming your bushy eyebrows to perfection, and it is time to let go of the outline you drew on earlier in the process. Using a cotton swab, dunk it into a little amount of micellar water, such as the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types, and then wipe away the brow pencil with your fingers.
STEP #6: APPLY BROW GEL OR MASCARA TO THE HAIR
The truth is that when it comes to really shape your bushy brows, there isn’t a lot of labor involved. This is due to the fact that bushy eyebrows are already thick and dense; all they want is a solution that will keep them in check throughout the day and night. Is there a product that does exactly that? Make use of a brow gel or mascara! Because your brows are already prominent, a clear brow gel should be used to hold your hairs in place rather than a colored brow gel, which may overpower their natural intensity. Once your hairs are in position, use the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara in Clear to define and set your brows into place even more.
