It seems that girls and women everywhere are obsessing over facial hair. No, not the jawline peach fuzz (which each and every one of us has, by the way), rather ladies are going crazy over stepping up their eyebrow game. Not only do defined brows give a woman a powerful demeanor, but they also frame the face, which means that defined brows will help you look pulled together even on your no-makeup days. Not only are there countless ways to groom and maintain your brows, but there are umpteen different ways to color your brows. With so many options to choose from, this article provides you with the information you need to know about the safe options for tinting your brows.
The beauty technique hitting the market these days is eyebrow dye. When the brows are dyed you are likely to have not only darker brows, but you will also have thicker, fuller looking eyebrows. The majority of women who dye their brows are looking for a darker, more dramatic look. However, some women will use this method to give their brows natural looking full appearance. The thing to remember about eyebrow dye is that it may not be totally safe. Over the past few years’ salons started dyeing client’s brows with an untested and non-FDA approved method and product. Today there are umpteen DIY eyebrow dye tutorials on the internet – which by the way are the furthest thing from FDA approved. The one way to make sure that you are safe when having your brows dyed is to not do it. There are dangers when drying your brows, which is why this method – as great as it seems – is not approved. With that said, there are other options to tint your brows which are both safe and FDA approved.
Yes, that’s right, the classic eyebrow pencil is still the safest and most used eyebrow tinting method today. When choosing an eyebrow pencil, there are a few things which you should keep in mind: first, be sure to choose a color which will match your hair color, with that said, most eyebrow pencils are only manufactured in a few different colors. If you are unsure, bring a friend with you to help you out, if you alone, ask an employee at the beauty counter. Second, opt for a roll/twist up pencil, rather than one that you have to sharpen. When applying eyebrow pencil, it’s best to outline the brow first, then go back and fill everything in. Finally, use a round eyebrow brush to brush the brows out in a feathering motion, giving it a natural look.
For those who wish to have more of a build-able color when coloring brows, eyebrow powder is the way to go. Just as with an eyebrow pencil, you’ll want to choose a color that coincides with your hair color. If you’re blonde, choose a light brown shade. The key to proper eyebrow powder application is the brush; it should be a small brush, almost like a lip or eye lining brush, except it the bristles will be flat against one another and be positioned at an angle. Look at reviews of brushes online if you’re contemplating which one to get.
