3 Steps to Perfect Brows from Our Cary NC Salon Stylists

Want magazine worthy eyebrows? Its easy with the right shape, color and the help of a little makeup.

Most people don’t have the brows they had at age 14, thick, full, maybe even a little bushy?! But thats all the rage these days. Big, full brows are in and you can have them too! All it takes is a little practice and some make-up.

From pencils, to gels, to powders, there are tons of products on the market today. I fill in my brows everyday and it takes 2 minutes tops. My top tips for getting those Vogue worthy brows are:

  1. Prime– I use eyeshadow primer daily and apply it from the base of my eyelid, all the way to and THROUGH my brow. Yes a little eyeshadow primer lightly brushed through your brow hair will give your brow product something to adhere to.
  2. Fill– I like the look of a powder brow filler more than a pencil, its less drastic looking and is easier to blend. Use an angled brow brush to outline the bottom of your eyebrow, start to end. Use short strokes to blend powder upwards into the hair. Set with a brow gel. I like Benefit’s Gimme Brow in Dark.
  3. Highlight– Make your brows pop, and erase any mistakes with a highlighting pencil or concealer. Use a few quick dabs along your brow bone, and blend. This gives your brow a lift and opens the eye.

What’s Brow Mapping & How Does It Benefit You?

How do we create the perfect brow shape for each of our clients here in Cary, NC? We brow map them!

What is a brow map you ask?

Well, its a pretty fool proof way to ensure that you are happy with your brow shape each and every month. No surprises, misshapen or uneven eyebrows here!

We start by finding three points on your face. We are looking for the appropriate point for your eyebrow to START, ARCH and END. Each person’s brows will differ, and we want yours to be customized to your facial structure.

See below for a quick walkthrough!

Brow Mapping Step 1

Once we mark our points, we outline the natural hair growth around your brow, creating an ideal shape. This looks startling, but is used as an outline so your brow expert knows where to remove hair and where to let it grow. Once your consultation is complete your brow expert will wax around the brow map outline, and you are left with full, youthful brows.

Brow mapping is a great way to repair past waxing or tweezing mistakes. Toss out your tweezers at home, your perfect brow is just a brow map away.
