On Fleek: Four Steps to Perfect Brows
If we were to ask you what is a key feature on the face that stands out the most, what would your answer be? Nose, eyes or mouth? You would be wrong, it’s the BROWS!
Eyebrows are multi functional, they filter against dust, dirt and the sweat that might get in your eyes, and brows have social significance, allowing people to see one another’s emotional expressions.
In a recent study conducted by the University of Lethbridge in Canada, researchers showed people 25 images of celebrities without eyebrows, followed by 25 images of celebrities without eyes. Participants were able to correctly identify 56 percent of the celebrities shown without eyes, but only 46 percent of the celebrities without eyebrows. The result? Brows are more important than eyes if you want to make a lasting impression.
Rowena Maree Campbell, make up artist, Face Plus Medispa share the four steps to perfect brows:
- Firstly, brush the brows into place and desired shape.
- Choose the product you wish to use to lightly fill in any sparse areas and to create soft lines giving definition to the brow.
“ I prefer using a pencil, using light, little strokes”.
- ALWAYS brush your brows after you have applied product, it helps to take away any harshness and gives a more natural look.
- To keep everything in place, brush through some Brow Set, which is a clear gel that holds it all in place.
Traditionally symmetry is considered to be a sign of beauty, however when it comes to the eyebrows they are meant to be sisters not twins.
