THE 5 MINUTE FACELIFT-THE EYEBROW WAX

Follow Me on Pinterest

 It is best to look at all of your options before you choose to undergo a facelift. Surgery is risky and highly dangerous. However, as an attempt to remain youthful, many people overlook the possible side effects of surgery. If you have not noticed by now, a facelift does not guarantee that you will look younger. Most of the time face lifts can make an individual look constipated. Their face is very tight and without expression. Wrinkles make you look older, but so does a super tight face.



 

RISKS ASSOCIATED
 WITH PLASTIC SURGERY


 
If you have not heard by now, your eyebrows are the clue to an instant face lift. Shaping and waxing your eyebrows is extremely pertinent to maintain a relaxed and youthful look. Here are some brief eyebrow tips that may change the way you see yourself.





 
#1.
 GET THEM DONE
PROFESSIONALLY!
 
The first time you have your eyebrows waxed, you should always get them done professionally. If you do not know what you are doing, it is extremely easy to make mistakes if possible it is best to avoid walking around with a really bad arch. Eyebrows are something that we rarely notice, but if it can instantly make a huge difference, both good and bad.  

Take the time to do a little research. Usually, you can stop by your nearest hair salon or nail parlor and ask them to wax your eyebrows. Price should range anywhere from $7.00- $10.00. Once you have initially gotten them waxed, then if you are bold enough, it can be easy to maintain that look by waxing around the corners and plucking the extra hair that may grow in.







 
 
 

#2.
ARCH THEM HIGHER!

Ask the person who is doing your eyebrow to arch them slightly higher. Having slightly higher eyebrows will draw your face upward.  Be careful not to have them arched too high, you do not want to walk around all day looking surprised because of your bad eyebrow wax.


#3.
THICK EYEBROWS ARE BETTER!

Try not to overwax or pluck your eyebrows. Getting them shaped is one thing, having your eyebrows looking like a thin line is another. Thin eyebrows can change your entire appearance. Youth is associated with having thicker eyebrows. If you naturally do not have thick eyebrows, go to your nearest drugstore and purchase an eyebrow pencil. Faintly shade in the areas where it may appear thinner.  You will be surprised at how much a simple wax can do for you.

#4.
 SHADE OPTIONS!

In order to make your eyes pop  (which also gives you a more youthful look), if you have dark hair (black, dark brown), use an eyebrow pencil that is one to two shades lighter.  If you have lighter hair (blond), go a couple of shades darker.





#5.
 HIGHLIGHT UNDERNEATH
THE EYEBROW!

Take an eyebrow highlighter and softly draw a faint line underneath  the eyebrow. An eyebrow highlighter can be purchased at you local drugstore, ie CVS or Walgreens.  This will automatically draw the face upward.  Sometimes people who have darker skin have tendencies for their highlighter to look like a white line underneath their eyebrows when they are trying to attempt this process. If you are having this issue, use concealer instead. Yes! Highlight underneath your brow with a concealer that is slightly lighter then your skin. This can work miracles and keep your skin from looking ashy underneath your brows!

Also, primer can be used to have long lasting make-up. If you have primer at home for your face, I would recommend putting a little bit of it underneath your eyebrows. There is no reason to buy separate primer. THINK INEXPENSIVE!

DO'S AND DON'T S OF EYEBROWS:
  • DO NOT OVER PLUCK YOUR EYEBROWS. THE OLDER YOU GET, THE LONGER IT TAKES FOR YOUR EYEBROWS TO GROW BACK. THE STANDARD IS WAXING ONCE EVERY OTHER WEEK OR ONCE A MONTH. HOWEVER, IF YOU LEARN HOW TO UPKEEP, YOU CAN DO THIS ONCE EVERY 6 MONTHS.
  • USE A GEL, LIKE WHAT IS FEATURED IN THE PICTURE ABOVE, TO HOLD THE EYEBROWS INTO PLACE AND GIVE YOU A MORE POLISHED LOOK.
  • ALWAYS GET THEM DONE PROFESSIONALLY THE FIRST TIME.
  • DO NOT SHAVE YOUR ENTIRE EYEBROW AND REPLACE IT WITH A PENCIL DRAWING. THIS LOOKS FAKE AND AUTOMATICALLY AGES YOUR FACE.
  •  
  • DO NOT OVERSPEND ON PRODUCTS! IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO GET TWEEZERS OR AN EYEBROW PENCIL FROM YOUR LOCAL DRUGSTORE. THEY ARE ALL BASICALLY THE SAME. SOME MAY BE SLIGHTLY BETTER THAN OTHERS, BUT UNLESS YOU ARE USING YOUR EYEBROW PENCIL AS AN EYELINER, IT SHOULD NOT BE SUPER EXPENSIVE.
  • TRY NOT TO WAX BEFORE AN IMPORTANT EVENT. IF YOUR SKIN IS SENSITIVE IT MAY SHOW UP RED OR IRRITATED.
  • THICKER IS BETTER, BUT UNIBROWS ARE NOT CUTE.
  • DO NOT HESITATE TO USE AN EYELINER THAT MATCHES FOR YOUR SHADE ON YOUR EYEBROWS. THIS WILL SAVE YOU MONEY. RECOGNIZE WHICH ITEMS YOU CAN USE IN YOUR MAKE-UP DRAWER FOR MULTIPLE UTENSILS.
  • ASK SOMEONE BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO WAX!
