Taylor's Wonderland eyebrows

November 12, 2014 0 Comments
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)

May 26, 2014 0 Comments
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 SHAVE the stray hairs with an eyebrow razor.

When the row is finished growing in, start on the next row.  Shaving the hair can enhance the growth of hair, therefore using a brow razor can also stimulate growth.  Try using a brow razor to shave the areas where you want more growth to occur.  Continue growing your brows out a row at a time until they're finished growing back.  This method gives your brows a neater appearance.

Patience is the key to your success.  You cannot expect your eyebrows to  magically grow overnight.  You will have to give it time and wait for the brows to grow back.

DIY: Eyebrow growth serum

January 08, 2014 3 Comments
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:

  1. 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.
  2. Wash your face and make sure your eyebrows and the surrounding area is free of any make-up.  Pat your face and eyebrows dry.
  3. Apply the mixture to each eyebrow.  Massage the oils into the eyebrow area for 30 to 60 seconds.
  4. Leave the oils on your eyebrows overnight to allow them to be absorbed into your skin and into the hair follicles.
  5. In the morning, wash the oil off. 
With regular use, you will achieve fuller, longer, and more youthful-looking brows with less breakage.

The best eyebrows for your face shape

December 21, 2013 1 Comments
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 permanently surprised! 
Square/Rectangle face
Like an angular face, you want medium brows that aren't overly flat or arched.  A soft arch will soften the angles of the face. 
Long/Oblong
Flat straight eyebrows will help to shorten your face vertically and a low arch will help open up your face horizontally.
Note for all:
Steer clear of thin eyebrows.  Eyebrows need to be in proportion with your face like all other features, so it’s best to get them groomed by a professional to ensure they are perfectly suited to you. 
I also came across these very useful eyebrow-shaping tips from doeadeery.com:

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

October 08, 2011 2 Comments
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 doing this would make you look messy and un-groomed!  
Instead, I suggest using a white eyeliner or concealer on the hair that you don’t want to remove when tweezing, so you don't end up plucking the hair you want to grow back.

Invert in a good quality pair of tweezers.  If your tweezers slide off or break the hair instead of pulling them out, or can't grab onto short hairs, you'll end up frustrated.  This is when you’re most likely to make a mistake and end up with over-plucked eyebrows!  Always tweeze one hair at a time.
Fill them in with an eyebrow pencil and/or powder while you wait.  Be very careful, if you use the wrong products or techniques your brows will look painted on, instead of natural.  Choose a colour that is close to your natural hair colour.  Gently pull the pencil away near the edges of your brow to prevent the dreaded painted on look.  Apply some eyebrow gel to keep everything in place.
Using a magnifying mirror (or standing too close to a mirror) is not the best way to get perspective on how your brows are looking, so you'll end up over-plucking.  Use a regular mirror and make sure you have good, natural light when tweezing.

I also recommend using this DIY eyebrow growth serum formulated for encouraging the growth of healthier, fuller-looking brows.

Always take your time and never pluck your eyebrows when you’re in a hurry!
