While lockdown has made everybody an expert at grooming, there is one area we all still face trouble – the brows. Styling them can be a problematic endeavor. Here’s the experts-suggested step by step guide on getting the perfect brows at home.
Step 1: Letting the Brows Grow
According to beauty experts, a good arch primarily needs enough brow hair to work with. Brow serums packed with vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidants are best to strengthen and nourish brow hairs.
Step 2: Determining the Brow Shape
Hold a long pencil up to the right or left nostril and point it straight up. This indicates where your brows should start. Now hold the pencil in line with the nostril and turn it diagonally, until it gets past the eye’s outer corner. It’s the point where your brow should end. Next hold the pencil next to the nostril at a 45-degree angle, letting it go just past your pupil. That’s the exact point your brow arch should be.
Step 3: Taming the Targeted Area
Priming the brows means making them ready to be plucked. According to the experts, a steamy shower before plucking is helpful, as the warm water softens the brow hairs considerably, making the plucking process less painful.
Step 4: Plucking
Now start plucking. To see the shape, start by brushing the brows up and across. Experts suggest sticking to the rogue hair while plucking. To achieve the ultimate clean-cut, you can try to draw the measured shape first and pluck it accordingly.
Step 5: Filling the Gaps
The next step is using a fine brow pencil to fill in the sparse areas. Create sparse, small, hair-like strokes. According to makeup artists, forked tip products can work wonders in the case of larger gaps, mimicking a more realistic and microbladed look.
Step 6: Adding a Brow Gel
A hint of brow gel adds the finishing touch by holding everything in place. Apply a good quality brow gel, and brush the brows up to make it fuller-looking for a longer period.
Bridesmaids Wear Crocs to Prank Bride After She Banned the Shoes
Imagine Crocs are your least favorite type of shoes. How would you feel if, on your wedding day, your bridesmaids all showed up wearing matching Crocs after you have officially banned them for the ceremony? Sounds like one hell of a prank, right? Well, one unlucky bride actually fell victim to it when her friends decided to trick her on her special day.
The Prank Was Uploaded on TikTok
Earlier last month, a TikTok user by the name of @gabyrojas992 uploaded a curious video. It shows six bridesmaids in matching purple dresses and wearing light purple Crocs arriving at a wedding venue. Not only that, but the video has also captured the reaction of the bride when she turns to see her best friends showcasing their matching outfits… and shoes. Although we don’t get to see her full-on reaction, you can definitely tell she’s stunned and not at all happy when she first sees them. To top things off, the background music of the clip is “Marry You” by Bruno Mars.
As you can probably guess, the video quickly went viral, garnering nearly 9 million views in the first weeks of being published. The caption of the clip is where viewers understand the origin of the prank because it is captioned: “When she said no to crocs.”
All Is Well When It Ends Well
Despite the bride’s initial disappointment, it all went well in the end. The photo session actually included the Crocs outfits to forever capture this brilliant prank on camera. It’s safe to say that social media users had pretty strong opinions about the situation. Some said it was an act of disrespect to the bride, while others saw the humor in it. Most users were, however, hopeful that the bridesmaids had brought a change of shoes with them.
