Well-groomed, well-formed eyebrows make the face more harmonious visually, and the image as a whole - more memorable, because it is this part of the face that can tell a lot about the character and beauty habits of its owner. Together with the national Lancôme make-up artist Ekaterina Ponomareva, we have compiled a short guide to the “golden” rules of eyebrow makeup, which will surprise you with its thickness, delineation and naturalness.
Don't forget about correction
Today wide eyebrows, like those of Brooke Shields and Cara Delevingne, are in great demand and are almost at the peak of the trend agenda. But this does not mean at all that you need to forget about tweezers, because an overgrown eyebrow creates a feeling of sloppiness. Therefore, timely and correct correction and coloring by a specialist is the key to beautiful and thick eyebrows. Also remember that to create and maintain a voluminous eyebrow, it is better not to pluck naughty hairs, but to trim them.
Never paint over the beginning of the eyebrow too clearly: it will look graphical and unnatural. Moreover, at the beginning of the eyebrow, the hairs always grow less densely, and this only complicates the task.
Here, two shades of eye shadow or pencils will come to the rescue. Apply a lighter shade to the base, and a darker one to the ponytail to emphasize the curve. If you want to achieve the effect of a voluminous eyebrow, this drawing will be ideal and, moreover, it will look very natural (see also: "The secret of beautiful eyebrows: new technologies").
We increase the volume
To create the effect of thickness, you need to comb the eyebrows "up" with a brush and fix them with a special gel. In this case, a clear line is not needed at all. You can also use a strong hold gel and glue the hairs to the skin: this makes the eyebrows look even wider, and the hold will double. If too much staining remains on the brush, simply wipe off the excess with a tissue.
Let's reveal a little secret: the most convenient and effective tool for filling voids and improvising a wide eyebrow is eyebrow powder. Its small pigment particles quickly adhere to the skin and do not part with it for a long time. 3D volume effect guaranteed!
