A make-up artist has revealed how you should be plucking your eyebrows – but her technique is slightly controversial.
Typically if you’re taming your brows from home, you’ll remove any product from them and the surrounding area, before brushing the hair into place, plucking out the offending hairs and filling in as usual.
But apparently we’ve been doing it all wrong reports RSVP live.
Nikkie Makeup has revealed how she gets her clients eyebrows picture perfect – and she swears by this technique.
Instead of plucking your brows and then filling them in, the experienced MUA does it the other way around.
Although we’ve never swapped the steps in our usual technique before, we see the method behind the madness.
By filling in your eyebrows first like you would normally before you bring out the tweezers, there’s less chance that you’ll over-pluck them – and we’re all guilty of doing that at one point in our lives.
Also, by doing it this way it’s almost guaranteed that you won’t stray from the shape you like.
Instead, follow these steps:
- Firstly, brush the hairs upwards and outwards with a spooley so you can see the natural shape of your brow.
After that, grab a clear bar of soap or a soap brow product – these have become very popular recently. Spritz a little bit of water on your soap and use your spooley to pick some of the product up on your brush. Then apply it to your brows in the same direction as you did before.
- Then, fills in any gaps with your brow product of choice to create a full look.
- Once the brows are complete, bring in the tweezers. Since the desired shape and fullness of the brows is already taken care of, all you need to do is pluck any stray hair that sits outside of the brow.
