Skincare Can Be Expensive: 4 Products You Must Use
Everyone is focusing on cutting back on our expenses, saving for a rainy day, spending smarter. All these things are a great idea, but we also want quality of life. We need a few days to get away now and then, a dinner out once in awhile and to be able to take care of ourselves and our skin. While skin care can be expensive there are certain products you MUST use to maintain healthy and youthful skin.
How to Create Full Natural Looking Brows
THROUGHOUT the decades, we have had quite an eclectic variety of brow shapes and sizes. From the thin brows of the 80’s and 90’s, to the more recent ‘bold’ brow look. And if you are any type of beauty lover at all, it’s probably safe to say that you have tried to followed one, if not both of these fads throughout the last few decades. (Totally fine, we have too!)
WHEN the reality of society finally putting an ax through the days of thin brows sets in, we need to acknowledge that it's a lot harder to grow out our brows to what they once were and take action to get them to where they need to be. I'm here to help. Here's a look at few trends that 2017 will bring.
FIRST and foremost, ‘full but natural’ brows are by far the best route to go, however, if you were part of the millions of females that thinned them out in the 80’s and 90’s, then you might be having a hard time getting there. It’s ok, you are not the only one.
LUCKILY for you, there are some great products out there that can help you grow back the hair that was once there, but be patient, it may take several weeks to get them all grown back in. In the meantime, fill them in with makeup, preferably a brow powder, cream or combination of the two.
To achieve a natural brow look, follow these simple steps:
Apply powder or cream to eyebrow brush and apply to brows starting at the bottom, to create a baseline.
Next, apply more makeup to your brush and start at the center baseline, moving towards the end of your brow to create the tail.
Head back up to the middle, this time towards the top. Move in a downwards motion to meet your other line at the end of your brow. Blend both lines into each other, making a triangular shape.
Next, go back up to the start of your baseline and blend your makeup in an upwards motion to the top of your brow, keeping the makeup application light towards the beginning of the brow. Apply a little bit more makeup if looking for more of a bold brow or no more, if you are going for a natural look.
With a spooley brush, comb through the whole brow to soften as desired.
Lastly, finish off the whole look with a clear gel to set and hold the brows in place all day.
ADDITIONALLY, if you are victim of naturally super thin brows, brow scar or no brows at all, you can opt to try alternative treatments such as Brow Extensions and the semi permanent makeup procedure, Microblading. Both services, which range in price from $150-$700, have become quite popular in recent years and will continue to grow in popularity throughout the year.
HAPPY New Year! May each day in your year be filled with health, happiness and beautiful brows!
