Brow Shaping and Taming with Makeup

I always pay special attention to the eyebrows when doing a makeup. 

Brows frame the eyes, give us character and expression, and can give away our age.

Young brows are thick in shape, the hairs are dense and can be a bit unruly. They need to be cleaned up and given a natural shape but left thick and full then, be tamed with a bit of brow gel.

Older brows are thin looking. The hairs have become sparse. There may be holes in the brows. They have become shorter from both ends and can have long wild stray hairs from time to time.


These brows need some TLC to look fuller and thicker like younger brows. 

How to Shape and Tame Unruly Brows

Remove the Strays
Removal of stay hairs from under the brows will define the shape. Taking out the strays can actually make the brows look a little thicker. Strange but true!

Be careful not to take too many hairs out. You want to keep the brows as thick as possible.

Trim
Wild, wiry hairs must be trimmed with scissors. Brush them up and trim them to be in line with the other brushed up hairs.
 
Fill them
Then, use a little makeup magic to fill in the spareness creating a younger looking brow.
Use a flatliner brush and brow powder to fill in the brows. Make strokes with the brush to resemble hairs.

Gel them
Use a clear of tinted brow gel to keep the hairs in place.

Here is the older brow groomed and defined with brow powder. Makeup Magic!
