Tip No. 1: Sculpting your eyebrows.
The first step towards achieving perfect eyebrows and a flawless line is hair removal. We advise you to respect the natural shape of your eyebrows and ensure to maintain a greater thickness on the part covering the inner corner of the eye. When it comes to hair removal, it may also be wise not to succumb too easily to new trends, as these are very fleeting while the reconstruction of an eyebrow line can prove to be long and complicated. Finally, prioritise the hair removal of the lower part of your eyebrows, as the upper part is more difficult to work with and can result in gaps in your line.
Tweezers, thread or wax, you have a wide range of choices for carrying out your hair removal. However, we recommend the tweezers, especially if you are a beginner. Indeed, it is the simplest and most precise tool to handle. Take your time when plucking your eyebrows and be certain before removing a hair. It's better to have one hair "too many" than gaps in your eyebrows. If you don't feel confident, you can visit a beautician. They can also provide advice if you're unsure about the shape of your eyebrows.
Tip No. 2: Invest in eyebrow makeup.
Many people choose to use makeup to enhance their eyebrows. Today, there is a wide variety of products and colours available for this purpose. Whether you desire a natural look or wish to add a touch of whimsy to your eyebrows, you will undoubtedly find a makeup style that suits you. Pencil, mascara, gel, powder... the possibilities are plentiful.
One of the primary reasons why people resort to eyebrow makeup is with the intention of filling in gaps. For this, the use of a pencil is recommended. This is applied directly onto the skin to create an optical illusion. For a natural result, try to match as closely as possible to the colour of your eyebrows. If you're torn between two shades, we recommend opting for the lighter one. You can then complete your makeup by using a brow mascara, which has a fixing effect and adds volume.
If you wish, you can also utilise semi-permanent makeup. The most commonly used methods are microblading and microshading. Microblading involves pigmenting the epidermis with a needle to mimic eyebrow hairs. This procedure is usually carried out in two sessions spaced a few weeks apart. You can maintain the result for approximately a year and a half without needing an additional touch-up. Microshading employs a similar technique with the aim of creating a shading effect behind the eyebrows. It is generally better tolerated by sensitive skin because, instead of drawing lines to mimic hairs, only small dots are made.
Tip No. 3: Dare to try "brow lamination" for voluminous eyebrows.
This non-invasive eyebrow restructuring technique is aimed at individuals who wish to enhance the thickness of their eyebrows. "Brow lamination" is typically performed in a beauty salon, although an increasing number of DIY kits are being developed. Initially, the eyebrows are given a new shape by brushing them upwards and setting them with a suitable adhesive. A lifting balm is used to soften and tame the hair, directing it as desired. The eyebrows are then coated with a keratin-enriched treatment. At this stage, it is also possible to apply a dye to intensify the eyebrow colour. Finally, the hairs are brushed and a hydrating serum is applied.
Tip No. 4: Use treatments suitable for eyebrows.
To enhance your eyebrows, their maintenance should not be overlooked. Similar to the lips, face, and body, it is recommended to perform a brow scrub once a week. This treatment helps to rid the skin beneath the hairs of dead cells and reduce the risk of ingrown hairs.
In addition to exfoliation, the regular application of a strengthening serum is recommended. You might, for instance, consider our eyelash and eyebrow serum. Rich in pea peptides (INCI: Pisum Sativum (Pea) Peptide) and castor oil (INCI: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil), nourishing and densifying active ingredients, our serum strengthens and fortifies eyelashes and eyebrows. It can be applied morning and evening and does not need to be removed with a makeup remover.
