Why is eyebrow grooming and styling important?
Bobbi Brown said: "You have seen what a difference a great frame can make to a painting. It is the eyebrows that form a frame for your eyes." A picture can look a certain way in one frame, and look completely different in another. This is what your eyebrows do to your face. Whether you want to achieve a sexy look, a natural look or a bold look, it all starts with your eyebrows.
What's the best way to groom the eyebrows?
You can pluck, shave or wax, depending on the shape of your eyebrows and the hair. Thick hair is best removed by plucking with a tweezer because shaving will leave dark stubble visible on the skin. Waxing can irritate the skin but is convenient and the least time consuming. I would say you need a tweezer, a razor and a pair of scissors to make your eyebrows perfectly shaped.
Which is better - eyebrow pencil or eyeshadow?
Most eyebrow pencils are made from greasy ingredients, which might look good when applying, but get clumpy during the day when mixed with the skin's natural oil. If you are more comfortable with eyebrow pencils, choose one made with pressed powder because it looks more natural. The best way is to use eyeshadow with an eyebrow brush. This gives you a softer, more natural look that stays throughout the day.
How do I pick the colour for my eyebrows?
Regardless of your current hair colour, go with the natural colour, as in the roots of your hair. Nature has picked the right colour for you, so go with it. Painting your eyebrows light brown when your hair is dark will just look weird. Most Thais look good with dark brown eyebrows.
What is the trend for eyebrows now?
Strong eyebrows are very popular at the moment. It doesn't mean thick, dark, bold eyebrows. It just means your eyebrows should be one colour from head to end. In the past we used to like lighter colour at the head and darker at the end, but now one colour is enough.
What are your grooming tips for eyebrows?
If you have concerns, it's best to consult an eyebrow expert. You can have them professionally shaped and maintain the shape by tweezing once a week. Sometimes people see eyebrows on models and want to have the same eyebrows without considering their face shape. The right eyebrows for you should go well with everything on your face, not anyone else's.
What does an ideal eyebrow look like?
The head should be on the same line as the bridge of your nose. The end should make a 45-degree angle with your nose [as pictured]. The highest point should be on the same line as the outer edge of your iris. If you draw a line from the head to the end, it should be a straight horizontal line.
The perfect eyebrows should be go with your face, measuring from your nose and eyes.
