Basic Brow Maintenance

Raise your hand if you want beautiful brows! Brows can really make or break your look. Taking care of your brows is such an easy but important step in your beauty process. So here is basic brow maintenance and how you can do it in your home!
First off, you want to make sure you have a nice shape to your brows. This may mean that you need to invest in getting them professionally waxed or threaded or tweezed. But trust me, it’s well worth the money to get started on the right foot! You will save money in the long run because you can maintain them from home.
Once your brows are a nice shape, you want to make sure that they stay within their boundaries. Brows have boundaries?! You betcha! Simply take a pencil or makeup brush and place it vertically along the side of your nose and the inner corner of your eye. You don’t want your brow hair to grow past this point. Next, take the brush and place it diagonally from your nose to the outer corner of your eye. Your brow hair should not grow past this point. Easy peasy right??

Now what do you do if your hair is growing past your boundaries? What if you have stragglers making their way away from the beautiful brow shape? All you have to do is tweeze! But you must do it properly. Take a good set of tweezers and grab a lone hair. You want to tweeze in the same direction of the hair growth. This will allow the hair to come out easily without breaking the hair. It will also prevent ingrown hairs. Do this with all the stragglers that are outside of the beautiful brow boundaries.
You have a nice brow shape, they have boundaries, and they are tweezed. Great! But you must also make sure they are trimmed! Just like you need frequent haircuts, your brows need frequent trims. You do not want long, out of control hair growing on your beautiful face! You only need two things: cuticle scissors and a mascara wand. Simply take the wand and brush the hair up. Then take your scissors and trim the excess hair growth. And that’s it!
By shaping, having boundaries, tweezing, and trimming your brows you will have beautiful brows to frame your face! I love me some beauty basics and this is basic brow maintenance that you can easily do in your home! Good luck!
