Your eyebrows are probably the most important feature on your face, as they frame your features and accentuate your eyes. This is why it’s a bad idea to remove or shave them off as has been a trend in the past, as this radically alters how you look.

The best approach is to have your eyebrows professionally shaped either by waxing, tweezing or threading for a cleaner, fuller arch. Here are our tips to maintain perfect eyebrows in between visits to the salon.

For perfect brows:

  1. Always begin by removing makeup, and cleansing the eye area Using an eyebrow brush or mascara wand to brush out your eyebrows.
  2. Apply a warm compress to the eyebrows to open the pores and make plucking less painful.
  3. Apply moisturiser to the area or a aloe-based balm before tweezing to avoid broken or bruised skin.
  4. Start by removing stray hairs between your brows — remember to remove one hair at a time to avoid misshaping the eyebrows.

To complete the look, use a sharp eyebrow pencil that is one shade lighter than the colour of your eyebrow. When you’re done, use mascara on your eyelashes and eyeliner to instantly make your eyes more glamorous.
