This part of the face, as a rule, is inferior in popularity to the eyes, and this is absolutely unfair. Eyebrows play a huge role in creating our holistic image, which is why it is so important to be able to properly care for it.
Thick or thin, natural or carefully plucked, curved or straight, bare or highlighted with makeup, these are just some of the options we come across when it comes to brow shaping. Therefore, today I would like to offer you some tips on how to achieve the perfect look for your eyebrows.
Set them free
Many girls systematically pluck their eyebrows for years to a certain shape, completely forgetting about their natural appearance. Creator of the sensational feather brow trend, Stella Sironen, advises letting your brows grow out for six to eight weeks to reach their full potential:
The longer the better, as it allows you to see your natural shape, which can be fine-tuned in the future.
Whatever shape you choose for your eyebrows in the future, the healthier it is, the better it will look. Just like the hair on the head, which we constantly pamper with various masks and oils, eyebrows also need extra care. I advise you to pay attention to the intake of vitamins, especially vitamins A , C and E , because it's of great importance for healthy hair growth. In addition, you could try some methods to stimulate the growth of healthy hairs.
One of the methods is to use natural oils. Castor oil is especially helpful for stimulating hair growth, but don't overlook lemon, rose, and lavender oils. In addition to the obvious benefits for your brows, it also smells great, which is definitely an added benefit.
Correct eyebrow shape
Over the past 15 years, we have seen a lot of absolutely opposite fashion trends in the design of eyebrows - from fully plucked and made up, to thick, "eared" eyebrows. Despite the variety of styles, experts agree on one thing - ideal eyebrows should start at the top of an imaginary vertical line drawn from the center of the nostril upwards, and end at the point of drawing a vertical line from the center of the nostril to the outer end of the eye.
It sounds a little confusing, but if you just put a cosmetic pencil on the indicated points, you will quickly determine everything.
But even despite a fairly affordable scheme, there are some of the most common mistakes that girls make when shaping their eyebrows. First, they do not highlight the bend. It turns out something like an inverted letter U, it looks a little comical :)
This is followed by a bend located in the first third of the eyes. The next problem is too long eyebrows. Fortunately, all of these errors are correctable with correction or modeling .
Most often, we can correct the eyebrows at home with the help of ordinary tweezers. Most of the girls are sure that they know how to properly pluck their eyebrows, because it's so simple. But in fact, even such a seemingly elementary procedure has its own nuances. When plucking, pull the hairs strictly in the direction of hair growth, and never touch the top line of hairs on the eyebrows. Otherwise, you risk disrupting the natural growth of the eyebrows once and for all. Experts also advise preparing the plucking area by gently rubbing any facial cosmetic oil, such as coconut oil.
This will hydrate and lubricate your skin and hair follicle, prevent hair from breaking, and relieve tension in sensitive skin from plucking.
In order not to overdo it in the number of removed hairs, the masters advise doing the procedure in natural daylight and not using a magnifying mirror.
Pluck out a few hairs and step away from the mirror to get a sense of perspective.
Also a great way to correct the shape of the eyebrows is waxing, and, gaining popularity, thread depilation .
Many clients believe that correction and modeling are one and the same. But this opinion is wrong. Now you can still find the expression "brow architecture" . Here I would combine it with a semantic meaning with modeling. And correction, rather, is a part of modeling, because modeling is a broader concept and includes the following steps:
- Individual selection of the shape of the eyebrows (A professional master will design a shape that will perfectly fit into your face and type of appearance.
- Applying cleansers
- Contour new eyebrows with organic paste.
- Hair coloring
- Washing paint and paste
- Correction of the shape of the eyebrows (hairs that have gone beyond the dyed contour are removed)
