5 tips to achieve your perfect eyebrows

Eyebrows can shape your whole face and give your eyes an extra WOW factor. Everything you need for a perfect brow is available in Queen Street Mall. Here’s everything you need to know. 

1. Get a good grooming routine

The perfect brow begins with good grooming. Everybody’s brows, skin and preferences are different so choosing what works for you is super important. We love getting a brow wax and tint from the expert technicians at Benefit Brow Bar in Myer. If your skin is sensitive, we also love these salons to go and get the best threading in the biz: Get Threaded in Queens Plaza, Doll Face Brow and Makeup Studio in MacArthur Central and Instyle Glamour Beauty Salon in Brisbane Arcade.

2. Keep the shape of your eyebrows in check 

Before you let any tweezers or wax near your brows, it’s helpful to know what shape will suit your face. To find the inside edges, line them up with the outer edge of your nostril. To find your arch, take a pencil and angle it across your pupil, that line will show you the perfect position for your natural arch. Take the pencil and line it up against the end of your nose and outer corner of your eye, extend until it lines up with your brow and this is where the tail should end. 

3. Have the right products on hand for maintenance

Once you’ve shaped and tinted your brows, it’s a good idea to have an at-home maintenance routine to keep them looking fresh between appointments. All you really need for a chic daily brow is good tweezers and an eyebrow pencil to fill in the gaps once your tint starts to fade. We recommend the Mecca Cosmetica Slant Tip Tweezers for touch ups and the Chanel Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil to fill out any wispy parts, available at Myer.

4. Level up your eyebrow styling for special occasions

When you have an occasion that calls for extra glam, we’ve got your eyebrows covered. To get started, give your eyebrows a brush outwards using a spoolie. Then, fill them in using the Benefit Brow Zings Pro Palette from Myer. Ensure you use a heavier hand when filling the ends and top of your brows to create a graduated look of natural fullness. You can do this with a MECCA MAX Cat Eye Angled Liner Brush. Finally, give your brows shape and hold in place using MECCA MAX Brow Guru Super Soap. Simply dampen a spoolie, rub in the brow soap, then brush up to achieve those gorgeous fluffy ‘soap brows’.

5. Use concealer to define their shape

To highlight and define your brows, don’t reach for your highlighter. Instead, opt for a more pared back, modern look by outlining your brows with concealer. Choose a shade 1-2 tones lighter than your skin and voila, beautiful matt-finish highlight. For this area we love creamy concealers like Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer from MECCA or Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Concealer from David Jones. 

There you have it! Look no further than Queen Street Mall for brow professionals and every product you need to achieve glorious, gorgeous eyebrows.
