[13 Minimum] Eyebrow Mistakes You Might Be Making And How To Avoid Them
There’s a real sweet spot when it comes to the thickness of the eyebrows that’s most flattering, it seems. Some believe that brows that are too thin will instantly age a person, because it’s natural to lose those hairs as we enter our older years. “Facial features like eyebrows become less noticeable as hairs become more sparse, and so most makeup artists would recommend full, bushy brows to help signify your youth,” permanent makeup artist and founder of K.P Pro, Karen Betts, told Safety in Beauty. But, equally, a brow that’s too far the other way won’t do many people many favors, either. “Make sure you don’t overdo it though, as thick, overdrawn brows can portray a harsh look, giving the opposite of a youthful effect. Less is more,” Jamie Long, HD Brows lead stylist explained. In fact, Ursula Cervellone told Daily Mail that a brow that’s super thick and essentially block shaped may even end up making your eyes look smaller.
So how the heck do you actually work out the ideal brow volume for your face? One of the easiest ways is to follow the natural thickness of your brow rather than trying to create something new. If you’ve already over plucked though and need to build something thicker, we’d recommend booking an appointment with an eyebrow professional who can give you some personalized advice and create a specialized shape you can then maintain.
