Social media in general and beauty bloggers in particular have been going gaga over the trend of thick eyebrows. Fuller and natural-looking eyebrows are one of the hottest beauty trends. And why not? Thick and perfectly groomed eyebrows can make your face look more sculpted and framed, without wearing a ton of makeup. However, maintaining perfectly shaped eyebrows can be a tad difficult for girls who like to apply minimum makeup.

So, the burning question is how to get the perfect eyebrows without breaking the bank and spending too much time on them? Don’t fret! Here are the answers you need.

Get professional shaping at first

Plucking and tweezing your eyebrows can be really easy and less stressful after a good professional eyebrow shaping session. This will give you a perfect outline as a foundation for your eyebrows that you can maintain on your own by just tweezing and plucking the extra hairs. This becomes more crucial if you have thin eyebrows, as plucking a single hair can ruin your eyebrows for weeks but once you get it shaped by a professional it will be a much easier task.

Maintain the shape

Once you get the professional help, you just need to maintain the shape. Get rid of the extraneous hair from the top, bottom, and side of your eyebrows. The best way to shape your brows at home is by drawing the outline according to the previous thickness and shape with the help of an eyebrow pencil. Once you trace the basic shape of your brows, pluck the hairs one by one outside of the outline. If you feel like the hairs are getting unruly, you can use a spoolie and brush your hair with it. This way the hair will settle as per the outline. Use a pair of small scissors to trim the extra long hair if needed. Remember not to overdo it. Go easy and pluck the hairs one by one. Do not use a magnifying mirror for this purpose and take a few steps back to check the distant shape of the brows.

Reduce the pain

Plucking or tweezing can be painful at times. The best way to reduce the pain is by plucking the hair in the growth direction. Prepare your skin for plucking beforehand by washing your face with lukewarm water, or by taking a shower, as it will open the hair follicles and it will be a lot easier to remove the extra hair. Also, try to keep the area taut while plucking the hair. Once done plucking, calm the irritation or pain and tighten the pores by applying a cooling gel or your best moisturizer.

Be mindful of your overall health

Your overall health is important from inside as well to look great from outside. A good diet is essential to have thick eyebrows. Include foods rich in Vitamins and minerals in your diet to boost hair growth, such as nuts, fresh fruits, and vegetables. You can also help your eyebrows grow by massaging with oils like castor oil, coconut oil, and olive oil. Egg yolk and Fenugreek Seeds are also considered to boost hair growth. Exfoliate the skin around your eyebrows once in a while to remove dead skin cells, which also increases the blood circulation.
