Well-groomed eyebrows can significantly enhance your overall appearance and frame your face beautifully. While visiting a professional aesthetician or salon is a common option, shaping your eyebrows at home is a cost-effective and convenient alternative. With a little practice and the right technique, you can achieve perfectly shaped eyebrows in the comfort of your own home. In this blog, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of shaping your eyebrows at home like a pro following simple DIY techniques.
Tools You’ll Need
Tweezers: Choose a pair with slanted tipped tweezer to easily grip and pluck individual hair. Vega Tweezer - Slant Tip is designed to offer the same and it is also made with stainless steel to ensure durability. This is a fine-quality tweezer that comes with a hand-polished and perfectly aligned slant tip to grab unwanted hair with ease and precision.
Brow Brush: An angled brush or spoolie brush will help you comb and shape your eyebrows. Vega Eye Groomer is a dual-sided make-up tool. It comes with a flexible brush side with bristles on one side to shape and groom eyebrow hair into place, while the solid comb on the other side separates lashes and removes mascara clumps after application. It can also be used on the eyebrows to give them a more polished look.
Small Scissors: Use a small pair of scissors if there is the need to trim any long or unruly eyebrow hair that cannot be plucked.
Here’s a detailed guide on how you can shape your eyebrows using a tweezer. If you do not like the idea of plucking, you can also go for Vega EZY 2-in-1 Unisex Trimmer that’s designed for to smoothly trim unwanted hair from face as well as nose.
Determine Your Eyebrow Shape:
Begin by identifying the natural shape of your eyebrow. This will help you decide on the desired shape and ensure a better and sharper look. Keep in mind your face shape and personal preferences while determining the shape.
Brush and Trim:
Using the brow brush, comb your eyebrows upward to identify any long hair that extend beyond your desired shape. Use a pair of small scissors to trim those excess hair, being careful not to cut too much at once.
Outline Your Desired Shape:
With an eyebrow pencil or a thin eyebrow brush, outline the shape that you want to achieve. Ensure that the outline is symmetrical and follows the natural curve of your eyebrows.
Pluck Stray Hair:
Using the outlined shape as your guide, start plucking the stray hair outside the outline. Be cautious and pluck one hair at a time to avoid over-plucking. Pull each hair in the direction of its growth to minimize pain and discomfort.
Define the Arch:
To create a well-defined arch, focus on shaping the area just above the outer corner of your iris. Tweeze any stray hair that come in between the smooth curve of the arch, but be careful not to over-tweeze and flatten the arch. You can pick Vega Smooth Eyebrow Shaper Set for this purpose. Made from wheat straw material, the eyebrow shaper has a non-slip grip, safety-first design, highly effective blade, and protective cap to shape and trim the relevant areas to perfection.
Pay attention to the overall proportion of your eyebrows. The beginning of each brow should align with the bridge of your nose, and the arch should be carefully shaped from the beginning to the end of your brow. Adjust the shape as needed by maintaining the proportions.
Check for Symmetry:
Regularly step back and check the shape. Compare both eyebrows to ensure they are symmetrical in shape and size. Minor adjustments can be made by plucking off stray hair or filling in the gaps with an eyebrow pencil or powder.
Soothe and Nourish:
After shaping, apply a soothing lotion or aloe vera gel to calm the skin and reduce any redness or inflammation caused by tweezing.
By following these step-by-step instructions, you can confidently shape your eyebrows at home and achieve a polished, well-defined look. You only need a little practice to achieve perfection, so don't be discouraged if it takes a few attempts to master the technique. With time, you'll become more comfortable and skilled at shaping your eyebrows, allowing yourself to maintain a well-groomed appearance effortlessly.
