Eyebrows are possibly the most powerful facial feature. They can make you look younger or older. They can make you look strict or kind. You can’t change the size of your eyes, but your eyebrows can draw attention to them. You can’t change the shape of your face, but your brows can make it softer, less round, wide or long, whatever works for you.
This is why it is important to find a perfect shape, size and colour of your brows.
Well, let’s first eliminate thin eyebrows – they don’t fit anyone anymore. Everybody knows that thicker brows have been a trend for years now.
You should choose the shape of your eyebrows based on the shape of your face, skin tone and hair colour. For example, if you have a round face, high-arched brows will lengthen it. To soften your heart-shaped face, go for rounded brow shape. Long flat brows will add width to your long face.
Before you start shaping them, research online for the best shape for you. The better option is not to do it on your own if you don’t have experience. Visit a professional, who will shape your brows and you can later just pluck the extra hairs and maintain the shape.
If you are not blessed with naturally thick and precise eyebrows (very few people are) you will need to fill them with a pencil or a mascara. The colour of the brows is also important because you want to make them look as natural as possible. If you have dark hair, you should choose a shade that is 1-2 shades lighter than your hair colour. With blond hair, you should go for 1-2 shades darker.
Thick eyebrows are trendy right now, and they really fit everyone. If you have light and patchy eyebrows, you have to fill them in every day in order to gain the shape you want. Also, if your brows are over-plucked, you need to draw them until they grow back (if they ever will). Some makeup will help, but in the long run, it is advisable to change your grooming technique, apply certain oils or even your change dietary habits. However, another solution is to opt for permanent makeup. That way you can also have impeccable brows for a year or two, without having to reapply makeup every morning.
Permanent makeup treatments that are popular right now are similar to a tattoo, but not that invasive. They don’t last forever, which makes them semi-permanent. With adequate aftercare, they will last 2-3 years.
The most popular ones are microblading procedure and microshading procedure. The difference between these two procedures is that microblading leaves tiny, natural-looking hair strokes, while microshading leaves small, pinpoint dots and feathery look. If you are not satisfied with the shape of your brows at all, microblading might be a better solution for you. Microshading is perfect for people who just want to enhance the natural shape of their brows and fill in the empty spots.
The combination of these two procedures is very popular right now. If you have microshading plus microblading treatment, you will get hybrid brows, also known as combo brows. They look very natural and are perfect for people with sensitive skin. On the other hand, if you’re more into fluffy brow look, opt for feather eyebrows, a microblading treatment’s spin-off.
The look of your eyebrows is of great importance and even if you have perfect makeup on your face, it will look unfinished if you neglect your brows. Their shape and colour will affect your facial expression. If you want to look good, care for your brows. Follow the latest trends, research which shape is the best for your face and think about permanent makeup for always perfect eyebrows.
