August, 2014 (New York, NY) – Heading off to university and not able to maintain the regular monthly brow shaping appointments? Boom Boom, owner of Boom Boom Brow Bar, says “Get a professional wax before you leave and then take matters into your own hands with these tweezing tips….just remember, the biggest mistake people make is tweezing too much, so avoid over plucking, it can take months for brows to grow back,”
BEFORE diving in, do the homework: The space between brows should be equal to, or a little wider than eyes. Take an eye shadow brush and hold it parallel to the side of the nose, where the brush meets the brow is where the brow should begin. Then, extend the brush diagonally from the nostril, following the outside edge of the eye toward the brow – where the inside edge of the brush hits is where the brow should end. The best brows have a slight arch, hold the brush parallel to the outside edge of the colored part of the eye, where the brush meets the brow is where the highest part of the brow should be.
Give it the old college try…
1. Always have a plan (see above) and pair of clean sharp tweezers. Having a mirror in your room might be better than heading to the dorm bathroom, let ‘em think you were born with your FAB brows.
2. Use Boom Boom’s Push Up brow highlighting pencil (or a white eyeliner) to draw how you want brows to look – follow the shape your professional created before you left. Remember the 3 basics, 1) do not make them too far apart in the center – brows should start at the inside corner of the eye, 2) identify where the arch is and make sure to not over tweeze on the brow bone, it should be a straight line, 3) brows should not be too short length-wise, take it easy on the tweezing, better safe than sorry.
3. Tweeze anything below and above the line – remove the liner and you should have a clean brow that is not over-tweezed. If not, fill in with a Boom Boom Brow Boostier brow powder
