The one brow trick that you haven’t heard before
When it comes to applying makeup, you have to focus on the small things, because they can create a massive impact on how you look. You may use the highest quality of makeup products and accessories, but when you don’t get the basics right, the purpose of looking elegant is defeated.
You spend a lot of time in getting your eye-makeup right, but do you spend the same amount of time and effort in doing your eyebrows? Of course, not! Though it may be surprising for you to know this, the reality is that doing your brows can accentuate the beauty of your eyes to a large extent.
If there is one brow trick that can make a huge, positive impact on your looks, it is henna brows. Henna brows are especially great for women who have sparse eyebrows. Now, you don’t have to feel embarrassed about your thin eyebrows, before stepping out. With the help of the colour pigments in the henna, you can give a rich, brown colour to your eyebrows, without spending a lot of money.
Here are some essential points that you have to know about brow henna:
You can use the henna trick on your eyebrows to highlight your brows and your eyes. However, you should have some natural eyebrow hairs before you proceed to apply the henna on it.
Before using henna on your brows, you need to understand that it would only give a darker and browner shade to your brows than before. Henna doesn’t help you alter the natural shape of your eyebrows. If any brand claims to give you a better shape of eyebrows with their henna brand, there is no truth to it.
The effects of henna can last for about 5 to 15 days on your brows. It depends on several factors such as:
- Type of your skin (on oily skin, the effects wear off soon)
- Number of times you wet your face
- Frequency of applying cleaning & makeup products on your face
- How much your sweat
In short, when your henna-applied brows are exposed to a lot of moisture, the effects fade away soon. If a professional promises to apply long-lasting henna application on your brows, you should know that it isn’t possible. It is quite natural for the colour of your eyebrows to fade off around 15 days after usage, at the maximum.
It is always better to shape your eyebrows (through threading or waxing) first before application of henna. When your eyebrows are shapely, the rich and brown shade of the henna helps in highlighting them better than before. Also, before applying, always ensure that you clean your eyebrows thoroughly to remove traces of oil or dirt.
Never apply henna to your brows with your hand, as it can cover more area than required. Always use an angled brush to apply the henna. It is highly recommended that you start from the lower part of your eyebrows and work your way forward. Follow the instructions on the manual properly to get the consistency of the henna right before application.
Wash off after 20 minutes or the time mentioned in the product to watch your eyebrows turn a deep and rich brown. Now, there’s nothing stopping you from stepping out with confidence.
