Some Tips & Tricks
Powder creates both volume and color. Volume not
just color is badly needed in sparse areas. Color alone (via
pencils can look too harsh).
Most people truly won't know what you have done.
Expect to hear "What have you done to your hair?"
This tip makes the application look smooth and
uniform and waterproofs the brow powder. Lightly stroke the white
stick into the stencil area and smooth lightly with
your finger. Do this before you apply the powder.
Stick with thinner shapes as they will look more
Combining powder with the stencil helps create a
perfect brow edge- a must in getting a natural looking effect.
If you have very
little brow hair to start the puff brush works best to evenly and
lightly spread out the powder over the stencil hole area.
If you have some brow
hair present, an angled brush works best to accurately and lightly
place the powder in the areas that require it.
stencil works together with the powder to create an edge that is
soft yet visible. It is this edge that helps create the illusion of hair
translucent face powder over your brow area once you are done will
both soften the look and help hold the powder especially if you have
very oily skin.
What about products
that promote hair growth?
What about products
that stimulate eyebrow hair regrowth?
Products that stimulate hair growth usually
work in one of two ways. They either:
effect the hormones, which can stimulate
hair growth (as in say propecia). In this case hair growth will not
be limited to brows, if the product works.
vasodilate the blood vessels (make them
bigger) to increase the flow of blood (as in rogaine) and
presumably, nourish the follicles.
When it comes to hair growth no one
ingredient has proven effective for all individuals, all the time. Individuals
respond to different treatments in different ways. What may work for one
person may be ineffective in another, and so on.
What is certain though is that dilating blood
vessels around the eyes is a contributing factor to dark circles. Dark
circles are most caused by dilated blood vessels in conjunction with
thin skin around the eyes. For more information on
