After popular demand I finally have a special How to Shape Eyebrows tutorial here for you all!
I have always gotten tons of requests to do a brow tips and tricks for you all and it’s finally here! Yay!
As many of you know, (and for those of you who don’t) I am a licensed Esthetician and it’s actually what I do for a living so these brow tips come from a professional stance and I am going to share with you all my little secrets to achieving the best brows around town.
First, let me tell you all a little background on me and my brows…for giggles. I have always…and I repeat always had extremely big, dark and bushy brows. No I don’t dye them, no I don’t fill them in and yes they grow at an alarming rate, but I love them regardless. Somewhere between my mom’s (French) and Dad’s (Middle Eastern) sides I developed these large brows and let me tell you, I paid the price growing up. I cannot tell you how many times I was made fun of in Middle School about my brows. I honestly would run home crying and my mom would always ask what was wrong. I refused to tell her because I was embarrassed until one day I finally did let it out. She reassured me not to worry (as she was an Esthetician) and cleaned them up for me immediately.
Problem solved? You would think but.. no.
After I fixed the bushy-ness problem I was now being made fun of because my brows were TOO perfect. HA! You can never win with these kids can you?! Fast-forward 5 to 10 years later and I now had/have the most coveted brows. Sheesh, at least all that humiliation paid off, right?! 😉
Growing up my mom always always told me, “Olia never ever let someone touch your brows or tell you they were too big,” and I’m glad I listened. Never in my 26 years have I ever had someone other than my Mother (or myself) wax, tweeze, pluck or thread my brows. Now that’s not to say that you shouldn’t, I’m just lucky because I had someone to do them for me. What I will say is do your research, be adamant and don’t ever ever pluck too much!!
That leads me to Rule #1: Do NOT over-pluck
6. To determine where your brows should start, take a makeup brush and hold it along one side of your nose. Where it crosses the inner corner of your brow, that is where it should begin.
Keep in mind, brows can TOTALLY make your face so be cautious and if going somewhere do your research. Make sure to tell them exactly what you want! If you have made a mistake or are desperately trying to grow out your brows I would say to use a growth serum like this one. Also, another important thing when it comes to growing them out — I know it’s hard but put the tweezers down! I don’t know how many clients try to grow them out and can’t handle it and pick up the tweezers again. Just do clean ups in between and it will make the growth process way more manageable.
