Over the last few years my brows have become one of the most important steps in my makeup routine. Even on no makeup days I don't feel complete without doing something to my brows.
Naturally my brows are really sparse, unruly and strangely long. No matter how much brow gel or wax I use, I always find that a stray hair or two ends up making my brows look really messy. I have come to realise that occasionally trimming my brows makes my daily brow routine a lot easier. This post is a quick demonstration of how to trim your brows.
It is important to invest in a good pair of brow scissors. They need to be sharp, small and precise, otherwise you can accidentally cut into the brow shape (we've all been there).
Step 1: Brush the brow hairs up with the brush/spooley
Step 2: Trim the hairs above the brow line
Step 3: Brush the hairs down with the brush/spooley
Step 4: Trim the hairs below the brow line
I find that this does make my brows even more sparse than they usually are, but they are also a lot neater, are much easier to fill in, and they stay in place all day. Below is the final result after I have filled in my brows with only a brow powder.
If you're like me and you have long unruly brows, instead of worrying about a good brow gel/wax to hold your hairs in place, maybe consider trimming your brows!
