Extremely thin and arched in the ’30s, thick and natural today: eyebrows are the topic which fashion and make-up artist have focused on recently, giving them importance and dignity, setting trends and describing more advanced treatments and techniques to define them. Eyebrows play a fundamental role in dictating the harmony of the face, they are able to open and frame a look, give or remove expressiveness, express personality. It’s all about the brows!
The current trend is keeping eyebrows as natural as possible, respecting the natural shape of the arch and leaving them thick but always in order. Many are the stars who have abandoned the wild depilation of eyebrows and who have voted for a more natural look. Lily Collins, Jennifer Connelly, Cara Delevigne and Gigi Hadid were the first to show this look, dictating the current trend. Other showbusiness divas followed closely behind, from the Kardashians, headed by Kim, to Emily Ratjkowski, but also Emilia Clarke, Amal Alamuddin, Angelina Jolie, Rihanna, Lucy Hale and Kaia Gerber.
How to get the eyebrows of the stars? How is it possible to treat and keep them always perfect and tidy?
The first step is essential: contact a professional. Studying the right shape of the eyebrows is not simple, it is necessary to apply a series of geometrical calculations and mathematical proportions so that they are in harmony with the rest of the face respecting the structure and shape of the eyebrow arch, of the nose, of the cheekbones.
This is why it is necessary to make an appointment with a specialized technician, like Valentina, who will start the procedure to define and realize the best shape for your eyebrows.
And once at home?
Use make-up (and the right products)
Make-up is a very valuable ally for defining the shape of eyebrows, filling the empty spaces and giving depth. You do not need a thousand products, just a pencil for eyebrows (well pointed!) of a shade similar to that of the hair, a transparent or colored mascara for eyebrows, an illuminant or, even better, a translucent powder to define the area around the arch.
Total time: a few minutes.
Between one eyebrows appointment and another, it’s important to continue taking care of your eyebrows, removing only those that grow outside of the shape tailored for you, without tearing the hairs too hard, to prevent them from forming in-grown hairs.
The best time: after the shower, hair is softer and pores are open.
The perfect tool: a metal one with inclined ends.
Never cut your eyebrows. There is only one exception to this rule: shorten those hairs that are actually longer than the others. Boyish brows are the trend of the moment, that is to say the slightly masculine eyebrows, very thick and left at their natural length. Long live freedom!
Save on products
As for all cosmetic products and in particular for the face, it is essential to use cosmetics and accessories that are high quality and safe for the skin. It’s not necessary to spend astronomical amounts, on the contrary many brands allow you to buy excellent products at low prices. Why risk?
The out of control do-it-yourself
How many times have we stood in front of the mirror to remove the hairs that just bothered? And then after that another one and another… and here’s the damage! Too short or too thin Eyebrows, with holes or an improbable shape. Less is more, sometimes! Better to contact a specialist and follow her instructions to avoid disasters.
