Brows are the Gateway to Your Face

 

Brows are the gateway to your face. They create a balance, and without them, you can look older and certainly less noticeable.

Here a couple of things to know about brows.

Like fashion, brow styles change.   Right now, full, triangle brows are all the rage.   Here is a link where you can see how brow fashion does change. 

When you shape your brows, there is a beginning point and an end point. Most people have brows that “wimp out” before they “should” on the outer side. Check out the diagram.

When shaping your brows, please don’t stress because your brows don’t match. Remember, brows are sisters, not twins. 

I am not a fan of brow tattoos. Over time, they can discolor. That’s the least of it. As I mentioned before, brow fashion changes and you don’t want to be stuck with a brow shape you no longer like. 

If you like the idea of tattoos, I would advise for a thinner shape. It is easier to use makeup to enhance them. 

I choose makeup for my brows. Its very simple. First, I shape the brows with eye defining pencil. Second, I finish the look with brow tint. 

I do change the color of the tint. When I want to look dramatic, I use Dark Brunette. When I want to soften the brow, I use Blonde. Take a look a the video.
