How to Clean Up your Look with Eyebrow Waxing

To help groom and maintain eyebrows, you have many options, including plucking or eyebrow waxing.

Eyebrows are one of the most overlooked yet important facial features, because they help define the way the rest of your face looks.

When waxed the right way, they can highlight your eyes and make them look larger, widen your forehead, and make you look younger.

Getting a proper waxing job can help take the mystery out of maintenance, so that you don't run the risk of over tweezing them or missing any stray hairs.

Process and Techniques

One of the reasons why many people choose waxing over other methods of maintenance is the fact that waxing lasts longer.

Because large sets of hair can be removed all at once, this is an effective way to get rid of all of your excess hairs in one go.

However, if you have sensitive skin you might want to look for eyebrow wax that contains soothing botanicals or other ingredients that will keep your skin from getting too irritated.

Makeup Looks and Eyebrow Shapes

The top makeup looks for eyebrows go through trends, just like every other feature of your face. At the moment, the most current look for eyebrows is a more natural one.

If you look at the red carpet, you'll see less of the barely there brows of ten years ago and more of a bushy, natural, Brooke Shields look.
This may seem like it requires less maintenance, but you will still need to use techniques like eyebrow waxing to achieve the desired look.

To begin with, there are different shapes to the eyebrows, even if they are kept fairly natural.

The most flattering shape or arch will depend on your own facial structure. If you have an oval face, you will want to wax your eyebrows into gentle arches, while those with a longer face might want a straight eyebrow shape.

Tips for Touchups

Despite the fact that eyebrow waxing lasts for months when done correctly, you might still want to change the shape of your eyebrows in between waxing sessions.

Supplementing your waxing with tweezing can get rid of more hairs in the meantime, or you could choose to fill in your eyebrows with makeup if you decide that you actually want the appearance of more hair there while your natural hair is growing out.

Brushes, pencils, or even eye shadow can be used for these basic touchups, to give you a more natural look.
