Bad eyebrow mistakes and how to shape them perfectly
Don't let your brows age you!
We have every solution for eyebrow needs.
" 1. Graying Brows
a). Hide a few strays with a brow marker that matches your eyebrow color; the felt-tip point lets you paint hairs precisely with a natural-looking color.
b) If you have a significant number of grays, color them temporarily by brushing on a tinted brow gel that's slightly lighter than the non-gray hairs.
c) Even if the hair on your head is silver or gray hair, it is better dyeing brows light brown. It creates a frame for your eyes that sharpens your features for a more youthful look.

2. Overgrown Brows
Bushy brows can make eyes look smaller.
And longer, coarser hairs (which appear with age) may overhang at the outer edges, making lids look droopy.
a) Brush all the hairs up with a brow brush, then use brow scissors to cut the tips of hairs that extend above the top edge of the brow line, one at a time. (Cutting them all with one snip across leaves a straight edge that looks unnatural.)
b) Using electrolysis method we can eliminate stray hairs that grow outside the swath of hair that defines your natural brow shape.
c) Finish with clear brow gel to set hairs in place without darkening them.

3. Vanishing Brows
Like thinning hair, sparse brows come with age, so they make you look older than you are. Use a brow powder to fill in patchy spots and make your arches look thicker.
a) Start by gently pulling your skin taut with one hand to create a smooth surface.
b) With a stiff, angled brow brush, dust on the powder in the same direction your hairs grow, using light, feathery strokes. Concentrate on sparse areas.
c) When you're finished, brush the hairs up and out with a bow brush (it's like a clean mascara wand); this blends and softens the powder so it looks more natural and removes any excess powder.

4. Disappearing Tails
Brows naturally thin at the outer edges (by your temples) first, but a fast fade can also be the result of over-plucking. The tail of the brow is the part that sets off the arch, which makes eyes look youthful and sexy. Without it, eyes seem droopy and tired. Lengthen your brow tails with a pencil.
a) First, determine where the tail of your brow should end by holding a pencil diagonally from the outside corner of your nostril to the outer corner of your eye. The spot where the pencil intersects with your brow is your target.
b) Extend your brows to that point by using the brow pencil to sketch light, feathery strokes in the same direction your hairs grow.
c) Set the pencil and blend the penciled-in tails with the rest of your hairs by stroking a tinted brow gel over the entire length of your eyebrows. "
