Eyebrows are like shoes. When someone is wearing worn out, scruffy shoes, you notice. When someone is wearing a new, well made shoe, you notice. It’s a feature many take for granted and since they follow us wherever we go, they sometimes forget that they need grooming too! Typically when someone notices your eyebrows they’re either so perfect the person can’t take their eyes off of them or they’re so hairy, one can’t help but stare. Eyebrows help frame the eyes, play a big role when it comes to conveying emotion, and, can enhance ones beauty if shaped the correct way.
People in their mid thirties tend to suffer from eyebrow loss. It’s been proven that those who tweeze the most are affected the worst. Some say age has a lot to do with it but also some medications play a huge role in eyebrow loss as well. Birth control, Prozac, certain medications, thyroid issues, menopause and pregnancy can all contribute to eyebrow loss.
Back in the 1990’s, those who suffered from eyebrow loss would turn to “permanent makeup” which is more or less a tattoo in place of the eyebrow. Currently, there are brow implants available. Either service is personal preference but when deciding, one must always go towards the service that looks more natural and less obvious.
I’ve noticed some women still use the affordable option of a good old-fashioned brow pencil to pencil their brows in. I think it’s okay to use makeup to fill in brows but would rather the makeup junkies out there use a shadow and an angled brush for a softer more natural look. If a pencil must be used, light feathery strokes will help the brow look more natural. A straight pencil line does not enhance ones natural beauty in terms of brows and does not look more appealing than other options. If you are one who chooses the pencil, go light and practice different techniques before you decide whether or not the pencil is working for you.
Many of these options are for those who are losing their brows or have thin brows. If you are one who has an over abundance of hair, be sure to have your brows professionally groomed or waxed on a regular basis. This will help keep your brows up to date and flawless.
