Good-looking eyebrows can enhance your look manifold and provide for more beautiful facial expressions. The consensus is that fluffy and full eyebrows result in the best looks. However, not all people have thick, full, and lush brows. Fortunately, the tapered (or the tadpole brows as they are generally called) can be reconfigured to provide a more beautiful look.
Jared Bailey (a global bro expert with Benefit Cosmetics) states that the tadpole or tapered brows have great weight at their starting point and get pencil thin later at the end. The tapered brows are usually caused due to over-tweezing (which was popular during the earlier decade between 2000-2009). Once the brow becomes thinners, it may not grow again fully. Over tweezing can cause damage to the hair follicles and prevent the hairs from coming back. Still, there are some ways through which you can reshape your brows to be fluffier and full again. The below-given 8 tips and methods can reverse the appearance of the tadpole/tapered brows and help you get the luscious arches again.
1. Eyebrow Growth Serum
Some serums can be used for enhancing the flatter on the lashes. The same formula and trick can be used for eyebrows as well. Bailey, the expert, states that you can have a faster and fluffier bro growth by using topical products regularly for some time. These products should contain ingredients including soy proteins and carotene among others that can provide for healthy and faster brow growth. There are also natural options available that are free from prostaglandins and are entirely vegan. A brow and hair growth tropical product can be applied every day before you go to bed and the magic is done while you are asleep.
2. Use the Tweezer Carefully
It is also important to use choose a quality tweezer and use it carefully. People often remove the hair of the bros in the inner wrong direction, due to which it never grows back. All hairs on the body (including those on the bros) are connected to blood vessels (also called derma vessels). These vessels provide nutrition to the hair and help it grow back if it gets removed. If the hair is removed in the wrong direction, it will damage the blood vessel. The right method of tweezing is to pull the skin tightly of the body. Then tweeze out the hair in its growth direction. The direction of growth of a hair is towards the temple or upward, and not straight out.
3. Choose the Micro-Pointed Pencils
When you want more natural-looking and fuller brows and arches, micro-point makeup pencils can be a good option. Microliners from leading brands including Benefit Cosmetics will help you create full brows right in the direction where the brow hairs grow. The more-believable look will come when you can leave space between the different strokes. It will help it look like a real hair collection. Quality pencils will impose blendable and rich colors that do not spread. Make the applications with the light hand and use a mirror as well. Patience will help you create the best strokes that can resemble real hair. You will be perfect after some practice.
4. Brush Up
You can use a dry brush for brushing the eyebrows. Subsequently, you can use and apply a clear and quality gel (for instance the Arch shaping gels) to brush the brows well in place. The brow hairs found at the end can also be reconfigured to give a sharp point. You can easily see such brushed-bro looks on the models and in everyday life as well.
5. Have an Ombre Approach while Using the Pencil
An ombre approach is when the tones and colors can fade into each other and blend well. When you want to create eyebrows that look natural, you should be using your pencil with a light hand at the initial/head end of the brow. Using the fine strokes will provide for a stronger tail.
6. Make it 3-D
Once the brows have been properly sketched and shaped in a desirous manner, you should make them three-dimensional by adding more texture. Brow gels are a wonder that can help you here. You should be choosing the fiber-based gels for the purpose. Start by combining the gel backward through the brows (from the tail end to the start). Now move in an opposite direction for brushing the hairs on the brow upwards.
7. Go For the Perfect Shape
According to Bailey, you can find the perfect shape for your eyebrows by yourself only. He says that each face has different features including the nose and eyes. The brows and the other features are unique to an individual. Therefore before you start with the process of re-shaping your bro and use the pencil, you should try to know the starting point arch and the end of the tail of your brow. Benefit Cosmetics has for you the brow mapping methods that you can use to find out the best brow shape for yourself. The Benefits salons (the BrowBars) also have experts that can help you map your brows and suggest to you the best shape for your eyebrow. Some of the suggestive steps given by brow expert Bailey (that you can use at home) are given below.
- You can find the starting point of your brow by following the straight line from the brow's edge. It can balance the eyes and make the nose appear slimmer.
- Now you need to find the highest point of your brow. For that, you will have to follow the diagonal line from the outside of the nose and across the eye's middle. It is the arch of the brow. You can redefine and elevate the entire look when you can add some definition at this point.
- Next, you should find the end-point of the brow. For that, you need to follow the diagonal line from the brow's outside to the eye's outer corner. The length of the brow is important and should be in proportion to the entire face.
- When you have mapped the brow, you can make it look better and more stunning. You can over-extend the brow ends and/or can bring the starting points of the brows closer. It will create a stunning illusion of bold and strong brows.
Use Microblade when Nothing Works
There are cases when methods including the use of serums or the use of brow pencils (for drawing the hair-like strokes) do not work. If this is the case, you can utilize the method of microblading. It is the kind of tattooing technique for beautification. Following the technique, all the hairs on the brow will be etched in place. The method can give you complete peace of mind as you would not be required to wake up every morning while giving your brow arches a thought. However, the method of microblading is only semi-permanent. Do proper research before you choose a salon, as you may have to visit it again.
