Just a few years ago every woman whether office going or housewife or even every college going girl would be seen with thin narrow eyebrows. There wouldn’t be any lady sporting an eyebrow pencil in her makeup kit. In fact, every girl with thick eyebrows would be ogled at, in not such a good manner.
But that’s all in the past. Now most ladies keep an eyebrow pencil and go to the parlor for getting big bold eyebrows done. Why? Well, the thick eyebrows trend is in! Now, on flipping through any magazine you’ll see all the models don bushy or thick eyebrows. All your favourite actresses, like Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are keeping their eyebrows bold too!
Everything You Need To Know About The Bushy Eyebrows Trend
So now you’re probably wondering how the bushy eyebrows trend has seemed to make its way back? This is solely due to the fact that thick eyebrows make your face look much younger. The less you pluck off, the more naturally young your face looks. They appear to suit each lady’s face best and stay in shape for much longer. Also, just by removing minimal hair from your brows your face instantly becomes more symmetrical.
So How To Tweeze And Manage Bushy Eyebrows –
1. Comb And Snip Eyebrows

2. Numb Eyebrows
Desensitize your eyebrow area with ice cubes one minute before using the tweezer. You will do this by gripping ice over the eyebrow until you’re no longer able to feel how cold it is on your brows. This will assist in painless tweezing.
3. Go From Bottom To The Top
Pluck each hair carefully. By using slant-edge tweezers it will be much easier to grasp and remove each strand. Begin by plucking from beneath the brow and with rapid hand movement pull the hair in the upward direction and pull. While plucking from the top portion of your eyebrow be cautious to not ruin the shape of your arch.
4. Check Your Work
Tweezing your eye brows will require more time than waxing them does, however, it is much more accurate. If your eyebrows require a huge amount of shaping try waxing first and then tweeze to get the right shape. Ensure to keep checking your work by taking a step back from the mirror and analyzing your whole face.
5. Finishing Up
Once you’ve curtailed your eyebrows apply clear brow gel. This will help keep your thick brows in one position. If you don’t have access to gel, hairspray will do. Just spray a bit of it on an old toothbrush and brush through your eyebrows.
There you have it! Thick bushy gorgeous eyebrows.
However, if you’re uncomfortable with tweezing and shaping your brows or just don’t have enough time to do it; try creating bushy and thick edges with your eyebrow pencil. How to become a part of the bold eyebrows fashion with simply an eyebrow pencil? Here’s how –
1. Length And Arch Of Brow
Arrange the pencil parallel to the side of your nose from where the nostril starts. This is your starting point. Now incline the pencil slightly over your pupil’s middle to understand where the arch is. The crest of the arch will be made where the pencil goes past the eyebrow. Now direct the pencil towards the exterior section of your eye from the side of the nose, at an approximate 45 degrees. This is where the arch ends.
2. Combing And Trimming
Again, comb hair in direction of growth and snip off the excess length (as mentioned before)
3. Slight Plucking
Highlight the excess hair going outside the main brow with a white pencil. With a tweezer pluck the extra strands out.
4. Use Pencil
With an eyebrow pencil fill in the scanty regions of your eyebrow with short and swift pencil strokes.
Now you have quickly made thick eyebrows. For keeping the eyebrows bushy (if that’s the style you were going for) don’t trim or pluck much of the extra hair. Just tweeze enough so that it doesn’t look shabby.
