Have you ever wondered why you have eyebrows? Well, if you have wondered but never really bothered to find out, you will here! Eyebrows serve a twofold functionality. They are responsible for trapping dust and dirt within them so that your eyes are unaffected and they are also responsible for giving your face a shape. Although they may seem rather insignificant, you will find just how much of a difference they make when they are not there. Which is why, those who suffer from alopecia (condition of hair loss) for instance, opt for semi permanent makeup that can mimic the real thing quite well. However, nothing can help you (real or otherwise) if you do not know what works for you. So consider this your all-time eyebrow guide.
If you have ever come across someone who looks as though their eyebrows do not fit their face, it is because they are doing it wrong and it is glaringly obvious. Shape is the most basic mistake that many make. It is not a matter of what shape you like as much as it is about what shape suits you the most. You see, people fall under five main face-categories and the trick is to find out which of these you belong to. From round, oval, square, heart and diamond, you can compare your face to a few charts and decide which is yours. Whether you need to figure out your brow shape for an eyebrow tattoo Dubai or just as a makeup tool, it can be useful.
Believe it or not, this too plays an important role in the final result. Although yes this depends in part on what your personal preferences are, (Cara Delevigne anyone?) it also depends on what suits you. Just like the shape of the brow, thickness is something you should play around with. Obviously do not use semi permanent makeup to play around, use an eyebrow pencil instead! This way, you will be able to tell which areas should be thicker and which should be elongated. If you have at least a basic idea, you can let the linergist know what you have in mind and go from there.
This might be beginning to sound like an arts-‘n-crafts project, however colour too is an important feature of stunning brows. Genetics have a role to play with the eyebrows you are born with so they might be jet black, more brown or very light and wispy. With the first you need not really worry so much seeing as how many are concerned with darkening their brows to make them look thicker. If however you want them another colour, you can do so with tinting. You can darken and thicken thin brows with semi permanent makeup however you need to look at different options first.
With colour, be especially careful and ask for some before and after pictures. Generally, immediately after the treatment the colour can really darken which will look unnatural at first however as the scabs begin to fall away and the area heals, the colour begins to lighten up with time. Request to see a picture of someone who has passed this phase so you get a better idea of what to expect.
