We've all been there—a little tweezer happy, and now you're stuck with uneven eyebrows for the next few weeks. Yes, over-plucking your brows can seem like a bit of a headache to deal with; we're here to tell you it's not as bad as you think! Of course, it's not ideal; but that's not to say you have to call out sick from the office for the next six weeks either.
Makeup has catapulted into its prime years. With tons of new products invented every day, you're bound to find one that can fix your minor eyebrow mishap. So, with no further ado, let's figure out how to fix those uneven brows.
Before we can fix the problem, it's best to have some knowledge on those soon-to-be on fleek brows of yours.
The structure of your eyebrow can tell a lot about someone's bone structure and how they should do their brows. Following the structure of your face and the flow of your natural brow is the best way to avoid any brow incidents.
The eyebrow is divided into three separate parts: the head, body, and tail. Where your brow hair decides to grow is dependent on where your supraorbital ridge (brow ridge) lays. This ridge is often more prominent in men and less prominent in women.
Although it may not seem like this, your eyebrows start as mirrored images of each other. We get it; they may be more like sisters rather than twins now—-we can thank the over-plucked brow trends of the early 2000s for this one. Thankfully we've got all the resources and supplies to help get your brows back on track!
What Causes Uneven Brows?
If you have uneven eyebrows, it was probably caused by one of these reasons, but all that matters is that you know how to fix them, right?
If your brows are super uneven and you can't figure out why or how then let's look at some of the reasons.
Over-plucking: A common reason for uneven brows is over-plucking. It can be easy to unknowingly over-pluck your brows if you're not following the natural shape of your brow.
Hair Loss: Your eyebrows may be uneven due to hair thinning. One eyebrow could be losing hair a little quicker than the other one. It's best not to panic if you believe this is causing uneven brows. Just keep an eye on them; if you notice that they are continuing to thin, then you should consider a growth serum.
#1: Go Back to Your Roots and Find Your Natural Brow
Trust, the first step to reinventing your brow game is returning to your original shape! If you allow your brows to grow to their natural shape, managing and doing them is much easier.
The best way to figure out where your natural brow shape goes is by first finding your face shape. Knowing your face shape is key to having fleek brows!
Ways To Determine Your Face Shape
We think the easiest way to figure out your face shape is by simply measuring.
Forehead Width: It's best to start with your forehead. Measure the distance from your forehead at its widest point, from hairline to hairline.
Cheekbone Width: Start at your hairline above your cheekbone, measure the distance across your face on the other side.
Jawline Width: Start under your ears (the base of your jaw); now, measure the distance along the edge until you reach the chin—repeat steps on both sides.
Face Length: Start at the center of your hairline, and measure to the bottom of your face (the chin).
Once you have these measurements, you have all the information you need to figure out your exact face shape.
