I have always admired beautiful brows and since becoming an esthetician, I admire them even more. Properly maintained brows automatically enhance a woman’s beauty. It fills her face and gives her a complete look. Brows play an important role in our daily beauty routine.
Apart from eyebrows functioning as a barrier that prevents sweat and dust from falling down into our eyes, they also make one’s face more aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. With that being said, how we care and maintain our eyebrows either complements our beauty or takes away from it. The perfect brows can help one look more attractive and younger by simply emphasizing their eyes.
Some people choose to get their brows done professionally which comes at a cost while some do it themselves. Simple cosmetic tools like a spiral brush, brow shaping scissors, tweezers and brow pencil are good enough to groom your eyebrows once you understand how the shape will complement your face.
Grooming them once a month is good enough so whether you choose to maintain them yourself or have it done professionally, just make sure it complements your face structure.
Natural Look of HD Brown vs. Artistic Look of HD Brows
Some people choose to go the extra mile and attend to their eyebrows in a more fashionable manner by shaping, shading and contouring them. These kind of brows have been given the name HD Brow or the fade which is today’s hottest eyebrow trend. Make-up artists have perfected this trend as it works great in complimenting one’s face in a photo shoot. On the other hand, it is a bit tricky for the average person to try this kind of artistic brow at home as in the look can go horribly wrong. By all means, nothing is wrong by trying this look at home but moderation is the key. Going for a more natural look shown in the image above will definitely turn heads.
Last but not least, one last trend that cannot be forgotten is ‘tattooed eyebrows’. This phenomenon, which is mainly popular in Singapore and Malaysia, is otherwise known as cosmetic tattooing, semi-permanent makeup, pigment embroidery, 3-D eyebrow embroidery or microblading. It’s a more permanent solution to filling one’s brows everyday to get that desired look of fuller eyebrows. People who have naturally thin faint brows due to genetics tend to go for this option. They do require a touch up at least once a year as overtime it fades due to the fact that is done with a semi-permanent pigment. The technique used is natural feathering of hair like strokes to create fuller and bolder looking brows. In fact, the process requires no tattoo gun, no ink, and no bleeding or downtime and the results are flawless, natural looking brows.
To sum it all up, however one chooses to maintain their brows is entirely up to them. Some people feel more confident with the bold look while others feel more comfortable with the more natural looking brows.
