Guide to Eyebrow Products
There's a lot more to perfect brows than just hair removal. To get the ideal brows, you need fullness and definition. Many women have light, thin eyebrows with spaces in them. Eyebrows typically thin out as we age, and full brows are a sign of youth. That's where these products come in. There are so many eyebrow products on the market, from gels and waxes to powders and pencils. They're available at just about every price point, and you can try out different formulas to see which one works best for you. When choosing a brow color, you may want to choose a color that's the same depth as your hair color if you're a brunette. If you're blonde or light-haired, you may want to go a shade or two darker to add some definition. The most essential part of choosing a brow color is the tone. If your hair color is cool, stick with cool colors, and if it's warm, stick with warmer colors. You can play around with depth of color until you find the one that looks best on you. Taupe is a great color for most women, whether you're blonde or brunette.

Drawing your eyebrows
When grooming your eyebrows, remember that you do not have to draw it to achieve the look that you want. All you need to do is enhance it and fill in its natural look. If you have dark hair, your eyebrow color should be one or two shades lighter than your hair. If you have light hair, your eyebrow color should be two shades darker than your hair. This will balance the overall look of your face and hair. Below is the basic procedure of filling in your brows.
- Spray water on your brow brush. This will make the brow powder stick on your brush and stay on your eyebrows longer.
- Pick the eyebrow color that you want. Pick your color carefully. One to two shades lighter for dark hair and two shades darker for light hair.
- Start from the outer part of the brow and draw your desired shape. This way it will be easier for you to fill it in once your done shaping it.
- Fill in the rest of the brows with the thickness that you want to achieve. Do the same procedure with the other eyebrow and you should be all set.
- If you are still unsure of the brow shape that will work best for you, you can go to a salon and consult a professional to get some advice.
- Practice grooming your eyebrows every now and then and you will get the hang of it later on.
- If an eyebrow product doesn't work for you, don't stick with it. Explore your options until you find the best product for you.
