Once You Shape Your Brows You’ll Never Go Back!!!

Every makeup artist I have ever spoken to says eyebrows are the most important facial feature. Eyebrows serve as the perfect frame for the rest of your face. The importance of your brows on the outcome of your overall look is truly paramount.  So how do we get the most out of these hairy things above our eyes??? Well, shaping them of course!!! You really don’t realize just how important your eyebrows are until you get them shaped.  A perfectly groomed eyebrow can make your entire face look lifted, more youthful, and perfectly in proportion.   My go-to for the perfect eyebrow fix?   Laura Webb at the Anastasia counter in Nordstrom at the Aventura Mall.   She is no joke when it comes to eyebrow shaping.

Check out my interview with her below and how to enter for a chance to win a free Anastasia eyebrow service.

What are the brow trends this season?
-Brows trends this season are focused on full and bold. Keeping a natural shape with a soft arch and using brow powder to accentuate your shape is highly recommended.

What’s the first thing you look for when assessing a client’s brows?
-The first thing we look at when assessing a client’s brow is their fullness. If the brow has had previous shaping that caused holes, unevenness, or thinness of the brow we point that out before the initial service. We go over the brow with the client every service visit to see how shape is progressing. We want your natural fullness and shape to grow in so we can perfect your eyebrows.

What is the rule of thumb for shaping a client’s brows?
-The rule of thumb when shaping a clients brow is to make sure you measure the starting, arching, and ending point of the brow before you begin your shaping. This will allow the brow specialist to make sure that the brows are symmetrical.

How would a client maintain their brow shape during appointments?
-In between appointments, we usually recommend the client not worry about their brows. Especially if growing them out from a previous over tweezing or waxing of the shape. If necessary, tweezing the hairs along the brow bone can be done to give a cleaner look until ready for your next appointment.

Why are shaping brows important?
-The eyebrow is the frame of the face. If we do not shape it can look overgrown and messy. The shaping allows us to give you a natural eyelift and to frame the face with beautiful looking brows. A fuller brow is a younger brow, so it is important to not over do the tweezing and waxing.
