Today, the fashion for eyebrows requires new skills from the makeup artist: you need to be able to make the correct shape even on very problematic eyebrows. Even a separate profession has appeared - the eyebrow artist. This is a person who knows how to do architecture, dyeing and eyebrow makeup, regardless of their condition. When clients come to me who once plucked their eyebrows with a thread and want a wow effect right away, I have to explain to them that everything is not so simple. In makeup and eyebrow tinting, care and the right products are very important, with which the result will be both beautiful and long-lasting.
It is very important to competently approach the issue of eyebrow skin cleansing. At home, I recommend removing eyebrow makeup with floral water. In professional use, it can also be used to wipe eyebrows after correction and before coloring. The water contains chamomile and rosemary. Chamomile removes the oily layer from the skin and soothes it, while rosemary stimulates the growth of new hairs.
The next step is to apply a scrub to the cleansed eyebrow skin. We have created a special eyebrow scrub with large particles of sea salt, cane sugar and apricot pits. They do not get stuck in the hairs, are easily washed off and are pleasant to the eyebrows. The honey in the scrub has a warming effect - it "wakes up" dormant hair follicles. Sea buckthorn moisturizes the skin, which is also very important for eyebrow growth.
I recommend applying the scrub up to three times a week for home use and each time before dyeing your eyebrows. The scrub is without an oil base, therefore it does not conflict with the coloring elements.
Like the face and scalp, the eyebrow skin also needs to be moisturized. When the skin is dehydrated, the eyebrows grow poorly. Therefore, we have made multifunctional hydrogel patches - they can be applied to the area around the eyes, nasolabial folds, or directly on the eyebrows themselves. They are impregnated with fast moisturizers: collagen, hydrogel and hyaluronic acid. After 15-30 minutes of this spa procedure, the eyebrows are reanimated and begin to grow faster.
When coloring the eyebrows, I recommend using a care paste. This is my author's patented tool, which has become popular not only in Russia. Instagram now has over 14 thousand #browpaste hashtags.
The paste contains a composition of 9 natural oils that take care of the skin and prevent the paint from drying out. Another function - with paste it is very easy to make a neat shape of the eyebrows. The viscous consistency is applied with a brush around the drawn shape and protects its borders from paint.
The final stage of care is eyebrow oil. Glossy Gold has a large dispenser bottle and a rich composition - a complex of 11 different oils, including usma, rosemary, argan, grape seed and almond oils. The first effect will be noticeable after a month of use.
