There’s nothing more transformative for a face than the shape of your eyebrows. Grown out or plucked, thin or thick, groomed or unkempt - no matter what look you prefer, your brows will always create a defining frame for your face. Therefore, it’s important to invest in getting the perfect brows for your features. After all, how you wear your eyebrows will determine your whole look.
But how does one know what brow style to choose and how to achieve the ideal look for your features? We’ve put together five golden rules to get flawless brows every time. Follow these steps and say goodbye to messy brows!
Know what you’re dealing with
There’s no one-size-fits-all solution to getting the perfect brows, which means you’ll need to know your natural eyebrow shape. Are your eyebrows naturally round or arched? Sparse or sprouty? Thick or patchy? Once you determine what you’re working with, you’ll be able to figure out what to change, add or subtract to get your desired brow look.
Figure out the best shape for your face
Once you know your natural eyebrow form, you’ll need to figure out the best eyebrow shape for your face. Here’s a quick guide on how to determine your eyebrow shape based on your face cut:
Oval face: Full brows will draw attention to the eyes and help flatter this face shape.
Round face: A structured brow with angled arches will add definition and sharpness to a round face.
Square face: A highlighted, accented arch will make a square face appear less boxy.
Heart face: A softer, rounder arch will make the sharp features of this wider face shape look narrow
Sculpt your brows like a pro
It’s time to pluck! Mark the starting and ending points of your eyebrows with brush. Place the brush along the side of your nose to see the ideal starting point of your brows. Now slide the brush from the side of your nose to the outer corner of your eye to find the ideal ending point of your brows. Mark these areas and use a spoolie brush to brush your eyebrows in an upward motion.
Fill in your brows
Fill in your brows by lightly applying an eyebrow powder. Choose the color that best matches your eyebrows to achieve a natural look. We recommend the Chelsea Eyebrow Powder as it not only works with all hair colours and skin tones but is water-resistant and smudge-proof, which means your brows will stay in place all day. Apply the brow powder with short, even strokes and use the angled end of the applicator brush to define and smooth over any harsh lines.
Lock them in
Lastly, lock in your brows using Chelsea Clear Brow Gel. Using the spoolie brush, apply the gel evenly on your eyebrows in an outward motion. Its waterproof and long-wearing formula will ensure that your eyebrows stay in place all day!
There you have it – you can now flaunt your newly done brows with confidence. Follow these five golden rules and be sure to have stunning brows every time!
