Having very thick eyebrows can be off-putting on even the nicest faces. A well-groomed and well-trimmed pair of eyebrows can really open up your face and make your eyes look bigger and better. It can also make you look younger, nicer and more attractive. Here are some ways for you to get rid of thick eyebrows and shape them according to your face shape and eyes.
How Thick Should They Be?
Generally speaking, thin eyebrows don't look good on everyone, so go easy on those tweezers. People with stronger features usually look good with thick eyebrows while those with more delicate features would be more suited to thinner eyebrows. Either way, it's always better to work with your eyebrows in moderation.
Shape Your Eyebrows
For man, getting the basic shape of his eyebrow should be enough. Women, on the other hand, usually want to have more defined eyebrows. Follow the steps to help guide you in finding a good eyebrow definition.
Wash your face, and make sure your eyelids are free of dirt or makeup.
Use a ruler, or any straight-edged object (like a pencil) to help guide you. Use an eyebrow pencil to mark the places that will guide the shape of your eyebrow.
Hold the ruler from the outermost part of your nose and line it up to the inner edge of your eyebrow. This is where your eyebrow is supposed to start. Mark it with your eyebrow pencil.
Next, line up the ruler from the outermost part of your nose, intersecting with the outermost edge of your eye's iris (make sure you are looking straight ahead). The part where it lines up with your eyebrow should be where your eyebrow's arch peak should be, starting from the topmost brow downward. Again, mark that spot with your eyebrow pencil.
Line your ruler so that it lines up the outermost part of your nose with the outermost part of your eye (the outer corner of your eye). This is where the outer edge of your eyebrow should be. Mark this with your eyebrow pencil.
Once you've marked all the three spots with your eyebrow pencil, pluck the eyebrow hairs that are straying past the markers.
Now that you know how to shape your eyebrows, you can now choose what method you wish to use in doing so.
Plucking is the most common way of thinning out your eyebrows. It's also the safest way of shaping them because you don't have to remove many hairs in one go. It's also the most painful, so be warned.
The best way to pluck your eyebrows is after washing your face with warm water. Warm water will soften your skin and make your pores a bit bigger, so it will be easier to pluck them out. You can also use an ice pack on your eyebrow to numb your skin slightly before plucking.
Plucking between your eyebrows is the best way to get rid of the much-ridiculed unibrow, which makes one look like a neanderthal.
To pluck individual hairs from your eyebrow, make sure that you use the tweezers with your dominant hand. Grasp the hair as near to the base of the hair as possible, clamp on it tightly, and pull it outwards in one quick motion.
Trimming with a pair of small scissors helps tame down the unruly tufts of hair in your eyebrows. It's also painless, but trimming your eyebrows using scissors can go wrong if you don't control your hand well enough. Trimming is usually done on the inner edge of the eyebrow. Unlike plucking, you can expect the hairs to grow back quicker than it would've with plucking.
Waxing is another method used not just for legs, but for eyebrows too. You can get your eyebrows shaped in one go using the waxing method, but this is usually done with the help of a professional. Avoid doing this on your own, as you might end up waxing all of your eyebrows off!
Threading is a lot like tweezing or waxing, as it takes off many eyebrow hairs in one go. Unlike waxing, the only thing you need for this is a stretch of sewing thread. The thread is then stretched out, folded over, and it traps eyebrow hair in between to pluck them all out in one go. This can be quite painful, so you may want to brace yourself before going through it.
Shaving is another method to remove unwanted hairs from your eyebrow without causing much pain. An eyebrow razor is the best way to do this method, as it gives you more control over the razor without risking a cut in your hand. Some women, in fact, shave their whole eyebrows off and pencil new ones in using an eyebrow pencil.
Hair Removal Creams
To use hair removal creams your eyebrows, carefully apply a small amount of cream on the areas of your eyebrows that you want to remove hair. Wait for a few minutes, and wipe the cream off. The unwanted hairs will go with them. This is relatively painless (unless you are allergic to hair removal creams) way to get rid of your thick eyebrows.
