So, we all have those little stragglers surrounding our actual eyebrows. Maybe you don't have time to go get those babies waxed. Take just a few minutes after washing your face before bed, and follow these steps to really clean-up your brows!
Make sure to have good lighting and a large mirror - AND tweezers of course!
1. middle - take an eyeshadow brush or pencil and lay it against the side of your nose. Now, tilt it so that it is at a 90 degree angle (straight up and down), intersecting the inner corner of your eye. Any hairs that are to the left of the brush, should be tweezed!
Repeat on the opposite side!
2. outer tip - use the same brush/pencil and start again, laying it against the side of your nose. Now, tilt it even farther than before, intersecting the outer corner of your eye. Rock it back to lay flat against your temple. This is where the brow should end. Tweeze any hairs that go past the line of the brush!
If you want to actually SHAPE your brows, continue. If you want to just CLEAN-UP, skip to #4. If you have never shaped your own brows, I would recommend going to a professional first. You can follow the shape they create after the hairs start to grow back in. You don't want to make those guys too thin! - you never know when the hairs might stop growing back in, you may be stuck with the shape you create for life!
3. arch - look straight ahead into a mirror. Now, use the brush to connect the outer corner of your mouth and the very center of your pupil. The brush should go right through where the highest part of your arch should be!
4. all around - go ahead and tweeze any hairs lingering anywhere around your actual brow. This includes the very middle area that is the very top of your nose (no one wants a unibrow!!) Only go at the ones that are noticeably NOT part of the shape of your brow. If you go too close to the brow, you may alter the shape without trying!
5. trimming - take a small comb and brush upward following the natural angle of your brow, holding that position at the very top of your brow shape. Trim off any hairs that peek through the comb. You may have to change positions a few times to continue following the angle of your brow.
Take the comb and brush inward, trim.
Now, brush your brows back to their normal shape and voila! Whether this saves you in between waxes, OR helps eliminate trips, I hope this was useful information!
