When applying makeup, women spend time on accentuating such features as their eyes, lips, and cheeks, but often forget one important feature - their eyebrows! Eyebrows are made up of hair, which can get just as out of control as the hair on your head. In order to manage and keep your brows in place, you can apply eyebrow gel as part of your makeup routine.
Eyebrow gel holds the shape of your eyebrows in place, as well as shapes them to your eyes. What you get in return are eyebrows that perfectly outline the eyes, making them appear larger and more vibrant. In order to get the most out of your eyebrow gel, you must know how to apply it properly.
To apply eyebrow gel, you must first get your brows looking the way you want them to, meaning that they are shaped and plucked to your liking. You can do this on your own using a pair of tweezers or you can have them professionally waxed at a hair or nail salon. Usually it’s best to have your eyebrows waxed if they are overgrown or need a new shape. You can then continue to pluck them on your own to maintain the brow’s shape.
Next, you will need to brush your eyebrows using a brow brush. This will help you to achieve the desired shape of your eyebrows, while also making the hair flow in the right direction. Keep in mind that your eyebrow gel should come with a small brow brush that you can use if needed. To complete the look, use an eyebrow pencil to fill in the eyebrow.
Now you will need to decide which type of eyebrow gel you would like to use. There are two types to choose from; tinted or clear. Tinted eyebrow gels use a bit of color that helps to fill in eyebrows that are thin. Clear eyebrow gels on the other hand, have no color and simply help to keep the eyebrows in place. In order to choose the best eyebrow gel, also consider other factors such as the ingredients and formula that the gel is made of. Products that are 100% natural and use a non-sticky formula are ideal.
When you have chosen between a tinted or clear eyebrow gel, you are now ready to apply it to your groomed eyebrows. Start by brushing the eyebrow gel onto your eyebrows in one even motion. Begin at the inner corner of your eye and work your way to the outer corner. Use just a bit of gel because using too much will cause your eyebrows to look dried out or flaky. When finished, you can use the brow brush that came with the gel to straighten out your eyebrows and break up any clumps.
