Hi beautiful !
Today I would like to share on how I do my eyebrows, I’ll be sharing some tips and tricks on how to shape your eyebrows. As for me, I don’t have much eyebrows, so I clean them a bit and draw them. But for someone who has fuller eyebrows can follow this tips and tricks as well.
We know that eyebrows can really change your face, it actually shows your mood, whether you’re happy, angry or sad. We can tell that by the eyebrows. So that is why it is important to keep your eyebrows well groomed.
So now what you got to do is;
1 ) Figure out which method suits you best
In Malaysia, we have three common methods, waxing, threading and tweezing
Waxing may be pricey for some, and it may hurt a bit. If your planning to wax it, make sure your going to a professional. You don’t want to end up with funny eyebrows. Other than that, your hair will grow back a little slower, which takes about 6 weeks. Whoever has sensitive skin should avoid this, and it can actually burn your skin.
This is the most common eyebrow shaping in Malaysia, and it is cheap. It uses a cotton thread the pluck multiple hair at the same time, unlike tweezing where you pluck your hair one by one. But you do need to find a professional, it is less painful compare to waxing.
This is my method of shaping my eyebrows. Tweezing is more time consuming, and when you just started tweezing, you may mess it up. It does require practice, but eventually you’ll get the hang of it. Besides that, it isn’t painful to me but my hair does grow back faster. Do use a high quality tweezer, to pluck more precise and it will look cleaner and neater.
