If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the brows are the drapes. A perfectly sculpted eyebrow helps to frame the face, making it looking more symmetrical and polished. It’s the finishing touch for a completed makeup look! But just like with hair, lipstick, and lashes, there are definitely brow trends. One thing that is for sure…the fashion pendulum swings! The barely-there look of the 90s will be making a comeback…but with a twist. We will see wispy brows that are au naturel, but not over tweezed. We will also see BUSHY brows – natural, full, and thick, and brushed upward for drama! Even trendy colored eyebrows have even been spotted on the runways and streets! Think pink, purple, and green! While this kind of coloring takes some courage, we recommend simply adding a little eye shadow to your brow pomade and applying with a brush or spooley. But if you’re looking for something a little more everyday, here are our top three ways to get those perfect brows you’ve always dreamed of…no long-term commitment required!
Wax on, wax off! Beauty industry professionals have been using this technique for decades, and the results can be really beautiful. Warm or cold wax is applied to the hair removal areas. Then the wax is removed by hand or with a specific strip. Special attention is given to the area between the brows, as well as the natural arch. This will help to open the eyes and soften the face. It also allows your eye makeup to go on more smoothly! Results last about three weeks, and the quick procedure takes a matter of minutes. A little aloe will help with any redness initially. For daily care, just tame using a little gel on your brows and you’re ready to go! While it is not recommended for those using Retin-A products, brow waxing is a great solution for just about everyone!
For super blonds or those with barely visible brows, brow tinting just might be your new best friend. This safe procedure uses a vegetable dye to darken the color of the hair, resulting in a more prominent – but not totally overwhelming – look. Results last about one month and it often shaves some time off your everyday beauty routine since you no longer need to fill in your brows. Consider brow tinting to be the mascara for your eyebrows!
It is estimated that 80 million women in the U.S. use an eyebrow pencil as part of their daily makeup regime. We think you might as well use the right one! AVEDA just changed the brow pencil game with the brand new AVEDA brow definer. This multitasking tool shapes, fills, and grooms with a 100% naturally derived and vegan formula. The botanical waxes make the product glide on easily while also keeping it smudge-proof and resistant to heat and humidity. After filling in your natural brow or creating your desired brow shape with the pencil end, blend and tame using the spooley end. It doesn’t get much easier than that! With four colors to choose from, our makeup artists would love to help you find the perfect shade and show you exactly how to use the brow definer. Just ask for a free demo the next time you’re in!
