Bold and bushy brows are the hottest trend in the entertainment industry. Models and actresses everywhere are striving for bolder, bushier lashes than the rest – and that means so are we! The once thin and barely there eyebrow trend is out – and thick lashes are the newest way to add definition to the face. “But my brows are dull and light” – no problem! With today’s latest cosmetic advances, you can change almost anything you want to. Here’s a few different methods you can use to add the “wow” factor to your brows:
1) Eyebrow makeup
This is the simplest way to add colour and definition to your brows. Just find some eyebrow makeup that matches the colour of your brows, and use it to fill in the gaps to achieve a fuller appearance.
2) Eyebrow tinting
We’ve all dyed our hair – well now we can actually dye our lashes too! The process is very similar, but the chemicals used are slightly different for safe use around the eyes. Regardless, the process and outcomes are the same. You can make your brows either lighter or darker using specially formulated dyes. While the outcome is not permanent, it does usually last several weeks.
Micropigmentation is a form of semi-permanent makeup. When using micropigmentation, natural pigments are implanted into the dermal (second) layer of the skin by needle. The results look similar to that of eyebrow makeup, but are permanent and replace the daily need to apply eyebrow pencils and other makeup.
Many people often confuse micropigmentation with tattooing, but the two are actually quite different. Tattoo needles reach deeper layers of the skin than do micropigmentation needles. If they were used on the brows, the results could look unnatural, and even blotchy.
Microblading is also a type of semi-permanent makeup that uses a thin electric machine to apply pigments to the skin. For this reason it is often confused with micropigmentation. While on the surface, both procedures seem similar, they are actually worlds apart. What’s the difference? Ultimately its in the results. Micropigmenation adds colour to the brows, while microblading uses thin hair-like strokes to create the illusion of more brow hairs. In return, micropigmentation provides a more delicate and crisp look to the brows, while microblading provides a more natural effect. To look at it in another light, micropigmentation mimics the look of eyebrow makeup, while microblading mimics the look of the actual eyebrows.
In conclusion, the easiest way to get thicker and more luscious brows is to apply makeup everyday. But if you’re tired of applying makeup, or simply don’t have the time, looking at a more permanent solution may be the best way to go.
