eyebrow mistakes to avoid

Eyebrows are crucial in the maintenance of facial tissues. They give faces symmetry and definition. Every girl's desire is to have strong, defined brows, but every time you go to the salon to get them done, you leave disappointed. Have you experienced something similar? It could be because you're making one of these five eyebrow blunders. 

These are some of the most typical blunders people make when it comes to brow shaping and maintenance. Learn why they're bad ideas and see whether you've been making them yourself!

Eyebrow Plucking

Those tweezers are frightening your brows, so keep from them. When you tweeze at home, your eyebrow hair grows in an inconsistent manner, making it harder for the salon expert to see how to shape your brows. So, between salon sessions, resist the impulse to pluck your brows. 

Although it may appear to be harmless, plucking your brows exposes your pores to microorganisms. If your tweezers aren't clean, you could end up with an unattractive and unpleasant infection - so give them a quick wipe with a cotton pad soaked in antiseptic solutions to decrease the dangers. 

You should avoid overplucking because the hairs don't always come back, and you risk permanently losing your most attractive shape. It's always a good idea to employ a combination of threading, waxing, and tweezing to achieve the perfect arch.

Over Defining Your Eyebrows

Defining your brows is essential for giving your face a more defined appearance. You lose the natural quality of attractiveness when you over-define your brows to make them symmetrical and prominent. Keep it natural and uncomplicated, with minimum definition and asymmetry. Yes, imperfection is perfection.

Eyebrow Colouring

Filling in your brows with the proper colour is just as crucial as choosing the right hair colour for your skin. Filling in your brows with a tint that is the same colour as your hair or darker than your natural hair colour is not recommended. The colour of your brows must be one shade lighter than the colour of your hair.

Space Between Eyebrows

You can get carried away and create a wide space between your brows, which looks unnatural and makes your forehead appear broader than it actually is. Consult your salon technician to ensure that your brows begin at the proper angle. Hold a pencil along the nose's edge; your brows should begin where the line crosses the region.

People frequently pluck a gap between their brows that is wider than the Grand Canyon when caring for a unibrow or simply extra shaggy ends. It appears quite strange and unappealing.
