If the eyes are the window to the soul, then your Brows are the frame of it. Before building your look, remember: the frame is what holds the window together!

It is always best to have a professional shape your brows, and you can do the maintenance and fill in to create a more perfect and defined brow.

Eyebrows can make or break your entire look. They can age you or take years off your face. How would you like it to be? Follow these simple steps and let your eyes do the talking.

 

1. Try shaping your brows with a pencil, or even better a powder that is similar to your brow color or one shade darker. A brow powder or even an eye shadow can be used with an angled liner/brow brush.

TIP: whether you are using a pencil or a powder it is best to start in the inner corner of the brow (towards the nose) and work your way out.

2. Have a disposable mascara wand or an old toothbrush available to gently brush through the brows to blend the color. This will blend any harsh lines away and help lighten if you happen to add too much color.

3. It will create a more natural look if you either use a slightly deeper color or place more color to line the entire bottom of the brows and lighten as you work your way up towards the forehead. Then, use upward strokes with your blending brush to blend the darker into the lighter.

4. You can tweeze the sparse hairs that grow below the arch or the random hairs that seem to be almost on your eyelid or even towards the end over the cheekbones. This will help to keep that clean look in between waxing or threading appointments. But DO NOT go crazy- tweezing too much can ruin the entire look of the brow and it is true that if you tweeze your brows to thin for too long- you run the risk of them not growing back. So BEWARE!!!

 

Tip: take a quick picture of yourself before and after so you can see what a huge difference it will make, and how it really does lift the brow and open your eyes.  And if you are worried that you will not be able to do it (which is not true by the way), this will  give you a chance to practice until you find the most natural shape and color for your brows.  Take a picture of yourself before and after you do your brows and email it to us and Racco will send you a beauty code, giving you a free gift with your first purchase!
