Nicely groomed brows can do absolute wonders for your face; however, they also hold the ability to bring down your beauty game when not done correctly. When your brows are all groomed and filled in, they not only help in accentuating your eyes and making them look attractive, but they also add some definition to your face and make it look more defined. While it’s quite understandable all that plucking, threading, or waxing can be quite painful and torturous, the end result is always rewarding, hence, you should never leave your brows ungroomed and all bushy as they can easily ruin your entire look.
While this whole pandemic situation may have put an abrupt and temporary break to your salon visits, it doesn’t mean you would give up on your brows and leave them untamed only to bring your beauty game down. No, we won’t allow that. You don’t have to step out of your house looking shabby, and what if we told you that you can groom and tame your brows right at your home? Sounds amazing right? Well, lucky for you, we have got some really amazing tips for you on how to groom your bushy and overgrown brows at home.
Pluck extra strands of brow hair carefully
While you can’t really do much when it comes to shaping your brows, the least you can do is to give them a groomed and lived-in appearance. If this is your first time grooming your brows, you shouldn’t mess with your brow’s natural shape and only stick to plucking extra strands of hair that are grown past the outline of your brows. You can use a slant-tip tweezer to pluck stray hair from around the brows, just make sure to not go too close to your brows or you can accidentally mess things up.
Trim your brows
Overgrown and bushy brows can look super wild and messy, and you certainly don’t want to roam outside with such wild brows. The easiest way to take care of this messy situation is to trim your brows using eyebrows scissors. Giving your brows a nice trim won’t only help in making them look more uniform but will also make them appear bushy without looking untamed. Take an eyebrow brush or spoolie, brush the brows upward, and then very carefully cut the extra length above the brow outline. Also, you shouldn’t use any other scissor than brow scissors to trim the brows for extra precision. Just be very careful during this step as you don’t want to ruin your brows.
Fill in your brows
Tweezing and trimming can make a significant difference to your brows, but that isn’t sufficient to make your brows look tamed and groomed. Take your eyebrow pencil and start to fill in the gaps or sparse areas in your brows to open up your peepers and make your features look more defined. Also, you should use eyebrow pencil sparingly and always create small, feather-like strokes to make your brows look more natural.
Highlight your brow bone
Highlighting the brow bone is one of the easiest and simplest ways to make your brows look more defined and groomed. Take your favorite concealer (preferably a shade that is lighter than your natural skin tone) and apply it to your brow bone to add a highlighting effect. Highlighting the brow bone using concealer won’t only help to conceal fine hair, but it will also make the arches look more defined and your brows more groomed.
Pro tip: Use an eyebrow pencil that is one shade lighter than your natural brows to keep them looking natural.
