Eyebrows, the one thing you can get into shape without exercising.We are all looking for the perfect eyebrow. Unless you are blessed with beautiful full dark eyebrows of your own, but unfortunately this is unique! Nowadays there are also many eyebrow trends: thin, thick, bushy, tight. Fortunately, there are enough tools and examples to create a perfect eyebrow. Which color should you use? What about eyebrow dye? Let us help you find the right products for your eyebrows, so that you can be confident about your eyebrows.
Shaping your eyebrows is certainly not super easy. It's also a bit scary, because what if things go wrong? It's not like your eyebrow hairs grow back in a day. You can of course have your eyebrows done by a specialist, but this is pricey and you can easily do it yourself with a little explanation! Below you will find a step-by-step plan for shaping your eyebrows and how you can shape your eyebrows daily:
Step 1 - First, it is important that you let your eyebrow hairs grow as much as possible. Before you really start shaping your eyebrows, it is important that you have a full head of eyebrows.
Step 2 - Now it's time to tweeze and shape your eyebrows. There is a certain technique for this. You can easily apply this technique with a pencil. In this video you can see how to measure where your eyebrow should start, end and shape, mark this. After this you can determine and mark the thickness. So you can epilate everything around the marked. Step 3 continues below the video!
Step 3 - Epilating your eyebrows is best done with tweezers. Avoid waxing, strips or twine. With tweezers you run the least risk and you can work more precisely. So you can epilate everything that falls outside the marking. While epilating, pull the hair out in the direction of hair growth. As you do this, pull your skin tight. That way it hurts less. Epilate your eyebrows with enough light and a clear mirror so that you can see what you are doing. Tip for good tweezers? KASHŌKI Straight Tweezers With Case .

Step 5 - If you want you can paint your eyebrows with eyebrow dye. You can read the step-by-step plan for this in the next question!
Step 6 - You can fill in your eyebrows with eyebrow makeup. There are different types of eyebrow products. For example, you have powders, pens, pencils and gels. Fill in your eyebrows in the color you want. Play a bit with your pencil/brush. Pressing less hard will give you a more natural effect.

No, eyebrow dye is not harmful to your eyebrows/skin. Eyebrow dye has been specially developed for the sensitive skin in the area of your eyebrow. Hair dye, for example, is too harmful for that area and is really not recommended. For example, the ingredients in RefectoCil's eyebrow paint have all been tested. The paint is not irritating or harmful to your eyes.
It is difficult to determine which eyebrow shape suits your face. In any case, 2 tips are paramount: do not epilate too much, rather too little! And don't deviate too much from your natural eyebrow shape when you start shaping your eyebrows.
