7 Common Eyebrow Mistakes You're Probably Making

Your eyebrows are often considered the most important feature on your face. This is because they bring out your eyes and accentuate your best features - when they're done properly. For that reason, it's important to note some common mistakes that people tend to make when doing their brows.

  1. Trying to make them identical
  2. A common misconception is that brows are supposed to be identical. The truth is, however, that while it is important for them to be similar, focusing on making them identical is a huge mistake. That's when people get carried away and end up over-plucking them, which then results in a bigger problem.
  3. Over-plucking
  4. Over-plucked brows, although a common mistake, is a big problem that should be avoided at all costs. Brows are meant to complement your face and to frame it, but when they're over-plucked, they don't serve their purpose very well. Additionally, if you leave your brows too thin, you'll find it harder to achieve a natural look when filling them in.
  5. Not blending
  6. Your makeup routine probably already consists of filling in your brows. What you may not know, however, is the importance of blending them, after filling them in with a brow pencil or powder. Forgetting to do this will result in a visible pencil line under your brows that will disrupt that natural look you need.
  7. Overly dark filler
  8. Another common mistake that you might be making with your brows is applying filler that is either too thick or too dark. This is a mistake because the results are harsh-looking brows that also look fake. The last thing you want is for your brows to look as if you painted them on. Instead, go for a subtle filler that will allow you to keep that natural arched-brow look.
  9. Matching brow color to hair color
  10. If you've dyed your hair before, you've probably made the mistake of trying to get your brow color to be an exact match of your new hair color. However, that's not necessary. When choosing the right filler, it's recommended that you choose a brown one with just a hint of your new hair color. This will allow your brows to match your hair, while still looking natural.
  11. Too short or too long
  12. The length of your brows is another important factor that affects how your face is framed. Many people are unaware of this, and therefore accidentally leave their brows either too short, or too long. When left too short, your eyes and your nose will look bigger. Conversely, when left too long, the eyes and nose will appear smaller.
  13. Doing them before your makeup
  14. The purpose of brows is to complement your face. When you wear makeup, your complexion may change a little bit, and you'll want to make sure that your brows match properly. For that reason, it's best to do your makeup first, and your brows last.
