Because nothing’s better than an arch that’s on point
Well-groomed brows can transform your face in ways no amount of make-up ever can. They are an instant head turner. Here’s how to keep your brow game strong.
Grow them – The thicker your eyebrows before you head to the salon, the more scope of shaping them better. And less reason to fill in with a brow pencil. We recommend you get your eyebrows threaded once every three weeks.
Groom them – Go over to your trusted salon/eyebrow expert (we all have one) and get an eyebrow clean up in a shape that flatters your face (see next point). Trim any delinquent strands with scissors. When threading, remove only as much as needed. Thin eyebrows, unless they’re naturally sparse, look like eyebrow threading gone wrong (somebody had to break that to you).
Shape them – Different brow shapes flatter different face shapes. If you have a square face, you need well-defined eyebrows with softly-rounded (not too rounded) arches to balance out the strong jawline. For a round face, eyebrows with sharp, angular lines give it structure. If you have an oval face, opt for a slight arch. On a long face, extend the tails of your brows from east-to-west to play up horizontal features. If you have a heart shaped face, the right eyebrow shape can be a little tricky; keep the brows well-manicured, neither bushy nor thin.
Arch them – The basic rule of the arch is that it should be about two-thirds of the way out. Don’t centre it or you’ll end up with ugly rainbow-shaped eyebrows.
MyGlamm Pro Tip – Define your arch with some light gold/pearl highlighter. Use a small, flat eyeshadow brush to apply the highlighter underneath the arch, along the brow bone.
Fill them – For this, you’ll need an eyebrow pencil, in a shade that closely matches the colour of your brow, and an angled brush. Use the eyebrow pencil in short, light strokes between the brow hairs and obvious bald spots. Next, use the brush to soften the colour and blend it in well. Your eyebrows should look more defined but still natural.
