My current eyebrow routine | How I dye my eyebrows at home

Image
Hello everyone! I love eyebrow products and have a wide variety in my makeup collection; pencils, pomades, powders, tinted gels, pens, etc. Still, a few years ago, I discovered the magic of eyebrow tinting. Tinting makes your brows appear thicker and darker. I adore the results and the fact that I no longer need to use products daily.  Many use at-home kits to tint their eyebrow themselves instead of having them done by a professional. A dye kit costs much less than one professional appointment, and you can use it for many applications. And if you do not like the results, it fades in about a week and a half. I have been dyeing my brows, as well as my mum's, for years now. Doing my own eyebrow tinting every few weeks is easy, effective, and budget-friendly. You can purchase an  at-home eyebrow dye  or use  Just for Men Mustache & Beard Brush-In Gel  or  L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Rescue. Want to try eyebrow tinting at home?  Here is everything you will need...   Your dye of choice

Taylor's Wonderland eyebrows

Hello everyone! Have you seen the latest   Wonderland   cover yet?  Everyone is talking about Taylor's eyebrows.  She went for a totally different look on the cover of  Wonderland   magazine (Nov-Dec issue) , rocking darker, bolder brows.  It’s kind of amazing how eyebrows can change a person’s entire appearance.  Sure, Taylor's skin looks way tanner than her natural fair skin-tone but, it’s really her dark, bold brows that completely transform her face.   Overall, it’s a big change for Taylor, who usually has fair eyebrows, like she sported on the cover of  British Vogue  magazine (November issue) .   What do you think of Taylor Swift’s look?  Are you a fan?   I just LOVE bold brows.   Share your thoughts below!  

Re-grow over-plucked eyebrows! (part 2)

Hello everyone! In this post I will give you more tips on how to grow back your eyebrows.  Read part 1 here ! Exfoliation is a method that can help the growth of eyebrow hair.  You can use a soft toothbrush or a spoolie to scrub and exfoliate the area.  Using the brush in circular motion will help to remove dead skin and will enhance the blood circulation.  Another way to exfoliate is by using an exfoliating scrub.  Try a DIY  recipe   here !  Apply the scrub in a circular motion and BE GENTLE .  Too much pressure can damage the fine, fragile hair that is already there.   The row-growing method: You need to STOP plucking, waxing and threading!   Although this seem like a no-brainer, the messy look that will develop when you leave your brows un-touched for a while is not  flattering. If you can't stand the idea of letting all your hairs grow out before you shape your eyebrows, try the row-growing method.   Allow hairs closest to the existing brow to grow out and SH

DIY: Eyebrow growth serum

Hello everyone! Today I want to share with you a recipe for a DIY serum formulated for encouraging the growth of healthier , fuller-looking brows . You will need:  rosemary essential oil castor oil empty clear mascara tube/small jar Rosemary  is a well-known hair growth stimulant that is also used on the scalp to promote hair growth.  It can be used anywhere on the body including the eyebrows to make them grow faster.  It is important to dilute it with a base oil (like castor oil) before applying to the skin. Castor oil helps the hair grow thicker and longer, and can keep it from breaking.  It can also help you grow new eyebrow hair in bare areas that might have been over-plucked. Method: Pour 1 tablespoon castor oil and 8 to 10 drops of rosemary essential oil in an empty clear mascara tube (or a small jar) and shake to mix the oils. Wash your face and make sure your eyebrows and the surrounding area is free of any make-up.  Pat your face and eyebrows dry.

Hello everyone! Today's post is  another   eyebrow post - I told you I'm obsessed! ;-) Eyebrows can change the way your face looks, so it’s important to have perfectly shaped brows that complement and balance your face . If you don't know your face shape, take this quiz and find out! Here are some tips to help you choose the most flattering eyebrow shape to complement your facial features: Oval face Oval faces are lucky; oval faces are considered the perfect shape.  Full brows with a prominent arch are most complementing and to create the appearance of fuller cheeks, shorter length brows work amazingly.  Round face Choose medium to full brows that are more angular than round, an arch will complement your natural features and offset the roundness of your face.  Angular face  ( Heart, Inverted triangle,   Diamond, Pear ) Your face already has angles so medium brows that are rounded with a soft arch work best.  A high arch will only make you look

Re-grow over-plucked eyebrows! (part 1)

Hello everyone! I have to admit, I’m kind of obsessed with eyebrows.   And I mean eyebrows in general, not just my own.  Some things I notice right away are over-waxed brows, over-tweezed brows, drawn-on brows and unibrows.   Just like a great hairstyle, the right eyebrow shape can and will make a remarkable difference in the way you look. Eyebrow shaping can be done in various ways.  The most popular methods are tweezing, waxing and threading.  I do not suggest waxing your eyebrows (unless you have a unibrow).  With tweezing and threading, you have great control, and can accurately choose the hairs you're removing. Plucking   is the most popular method of eyebrow shaping since it is easy to do and  doesn't  require anybody’s assistance. So, what can you do if you over-plucked your eyebrows? Ideally, you should wait for all of the hair to grow back before you begin plucking.  Leave stray hairs alone to prevent over-plucking again.  But the truth is that doi
