All about eyebrows.

Since eyebrow shaping and eyebrow growth is extremely in demand right now, I thought it would be a good idea to recommend some products to my readers. I often get many emails asking about eyebrows and what products I use. I’ll go into detail about it in this blog post. First I would like to show you an example of awful eyebrows.

I have used adobe photoshop to the correct the eyebrow of the girl above. Look how much better she looks when the eyebrow is drawn correctly. She looks more youthful, less angry and her face even looks thinner!

Whats was wrong with her eyebrows : First off, her eyebrows are way to long for her face. With eyebrows almost touching her hair line she looks surprised and angry at the same time. Her eyebrow also starts off thick, becomes thinner in the middle and then ends off thick again. This is actually making her forehead look bigger in certain spots due to the unevenness of her dimensions. Her eyebrows are also slightly too dark and have no gradient effect making her look almost ” villain” like.

Famous Villains

Notice the trend in the eyebrows of the villains above? Eyebrows are all to long, dark and arched. This is what you want to stay away from. Unless angry and evil is the look you are going for. =)

Product Recommendations for eyebrows (Few of my faves)  | Powders ( Great if you already have a good set of brows and just want to enhance or fill in some sparse spots) : Anastasia Brow , Benefit Brows Kit , Urban Decay Brow , Laura Mercier Brow Powder Duo , Two Faced Eyebrow KitPencil : Shu Uemura Hard Formula Brow Pencil (This is what I use, 4 years and counting) , Anastasia Brow Wiz , Makeup Forever Eyebrow Pencil ( I love using this on clients, this is a easy to use powder formula in a pencil form) , Bobbi Brown Brow Pencil . Eyebrow pens ( These are great for people with no eyebrows or have very thin eyebrows. You can use these pens to create hair like strokes to make a natural brow) : Anastasia Brow Pen , Urban Decay Brow Tint Pen , Stila Stay All Day Brow Pen. Eyebrow gels ( These are used to enhance the colours of brows or to tame and keep long eyebrows neat, also great for sealing other products used on the brows for a longer lasting result : Anastasia Clear Brow Gel , Anastasia Tinted Brow GelsBenefit Brow Gel.

One thing that I forgot to mention in my last eyebrow blog is that if you are blonde your eyebrows need should be 1-2 shades darker then your hair.
