Widening the Eyebrow Gap
A lot of us make the mistakes of fixing our uni-brow or removing excess hair near the gap by completely removing them or trimming them. It’s important to remove this excess hair to make the eyebrows look shapely and clean, though there is such a thing as too much. You don’t want to create a gap that a plane can use it as a runway. Overly plucking your gap to the point that you can place three fingers on the gap should be a crime. This looks incredibly unnatural and can affect the whole face. The extra space on your forehead area can make it appear too wide. The next time you plan to pluck out hair near your gap, place a thin makeup brush vertically along your inner tear duct and corner of your nostrils. Draw a line on where the brush is. Use this as a guide and stop plucking beyond the line.
The bold and feathery type brows are the new in thing in beauty. This look is known for giving you that innocent yet bold appeal. Though, there is a difference between bold and unkempt.

You can maintain a good arch in your brow while making it look natural by trimming the edges with excess hair. First, brush your hair to your desired shape, use a clear mascara to help. After this, trim the excess and pluck those that are way beyond your ideal shape.
Matching Hair Color

There are some hair shades that may appear way too unnatural when placed in the eyebrows such as platinum blondes, reds and light copper colors. Remember, your eyebrow and hair color doesn’t have to match to make it look good. Your brow color can be one to two shades lighter or darker than your natural color. So, consider this when filling your eyebrows. Have you ever seen someone with bleach hair with light to invisible eyebrows? This look may appear high fashion, but It’s not really acceptable in the corporate world. You can match these types of hair colors with darker ones, though it won’t appear as natural.
