Shape, density, color… every detail counts for pretty eyebrows. But often during hair removal, it only takes a small gesture to damage the brow bone and lose the harmony of the face. What are the mistakes you shouldn't make for perfect eyebrows? Eyebrow expert Joss Devilleneuve shares his tips for avoiding beauty missteps!
Eyebrow shape: mistakes to avoid during hair removal
Go against your natural line
Some are lucky enough to have naturally shaped eyebrows, others are less so. If your eyebrow is straight, you don't have to want to create a curve effect. Know how to appreciate your natural eyebrow shape to highlight it!
Touching the head with the eyebrow
Eyebrows too close together or on the contrary too far apart will modify a face either by hardening it, or on the contrary by weakening its expression. Be careful not to touch the head of the eyebrows while waxing. Taking the bridge of the nose as a landmark, as a precaution it is better to clean the inter-brow bone area. Like the head, always keep the outer tip, a short eyebrow will make your eyes appear smaller.
Make an arch too pronounced
Often without realizing it, the tweezers are too greedy and will dig a bit too deep into the lower brow line. As a result, the arc is too pronounced and the facial expression is constantly surprised. To avoid the rounded brow effect, avoid digging in and do not touch below the center of the browbone.
"The most common mistake: too much waxing, too thin, too deep in the line, which immediately tires the expression." Joss says.
Mistakes to avoid when plucking your eyebrows
Eyebrow hair removal is preferable to tweezers
Eyebrow depilation with depilatory cream or even a razor should be avoided.
Tweezing is best done, although wax and thread are both quick and convenient. Tweezerswill always offer better precision to restructure the arcade. Especially since it allows better hair regrowth and does not sag the eyelid unlike wax.
Too often epilate them
Repetitive waxing attacks the brow bone and especially makes holes in the eyebrows. And the more holes there are, the more you refine them ... You shouldn't try hard on the down between the eyebrows, otherwise you will have more and more regrowth. After defining the shape of your eyebrows, a simple maintenance session every 3 weeks is more than enough to clean them.
Warning: Do not confuse the down of the face and the eyebrows!
“It is better to discipline an eyebrow with a fixer, use powders and a pencil rather than going to massacre it with repetitive waxing. ” Joss says.
Waxing in front of a magnifying mirror
To pluck your eyebrows to the nearest hair, there's nothing like a magnifying mirror. But to avoid any mishap, don't hesitate to take a step back. Indeed, when you are too close, the magnifying mirror tends to distort the perspective. Worse, you might end up with asymmetrical eyebrows.
When you have failed hair removal, it is tempting to want to start from scratch and remove all of the hair and redraw it with a felt-tip pen. This should be avoided because hair removal with a razor makes the hair grow thicker. Not to mention the lack of naturalness that an eyebrow without hair could have ...
Eyebrow makeup, restructuring or semi-permanent makeup, there is always a way to catch his eyebrows after a failed hair removal.
Do not go to the beautician
To have well-defined and natural eyebrows, entrust your arch to a professional who will be able to advise you. Go to a beauty salon to define the line that suits you best and avoid mishaps. Remember, beautiful, well-defined brows are the guarantee of a beautiful look!
