Just like with fashion, makeup goes through its own trends and styles with certain products being “hot” at one moment, only to be forgotten and taken over by the next trend without a moment’s notice. In terms of what’s hot in the makeup industry right now, it seems as though eyebrows are really enjoying a moment in the spotlight. Not too long ago they weren’t even a topic of discussion, but today, you’ll find endless products, tutorials, and blogs all geared at helping you achieve the perfect eyebrow shape.
So, what is the perfect eyebrow right now? Think fluffy, full, natural looking, and with a high arch. Those thin pencil-like brows are definitely not the trend right now, which means in order to achieve that full look, you need to put much more time and effort into it.
Achieving the perfect eyebrow is often a multi-step process that requires a pencil, pomade, and gel as you work to create a shape that is trendy yet appears natural. Before you know it, a whole chunk of your morning makeup routine is used up by your eyebrows alone. Well, thanks to advances in the cosmetic industry, brows that take skill, patience, and time each and every morning to carve out are no longer a necessity. Today, semi permanent eyebrows have become a real trend, and for good reason, as we will discuss.
What are Semi-Permanent Eyebrows?
Just when you think you’ve familiarised yourself with all the brow products out there, “semi-permanent brows” are thrown into the mix. With this process, eyebrows will actually be tattooed on your face using small needles rather than the traditional large tattoo gun. The needles deposit the colour right under your skin for semi-permanent results.
You will be able to pick a colour that matches your hair colour or works best for your complexion, allowing for a much more customised look. All too often with brow products, you are limited to a particular shade range, which may not actually be the best colours for you. Because the technique is so specific, technicians are actually able to achieve the look of tiny hair strokes, resulting in a very natural looking brow. Again, that can be next to impossible to achieve on your own with the various brow products in your arsenal.
How Long Will the Eyebrows Last?
Typically, the treatment can take anywhere from 40 minutes to two hours, and there will be a bit of aftercare involved. Aftercare usually includes instructions such as not scratching the area while it heals, not swimming for a week, using a special cream to help with healing, and avoiding direct sun.
As for longevity, these eyebrows can last anywhere from six months to two years depending on your skin type. If you feel like it’s fading but you aren’t quite ready to have them totally re-done, you can always opt for a re-touch. This will just refresh the colour and make it look rich once again.
Who Can Benefit Most from Semi-Permanent Eyebrows?
Unsure if you are a good candidate for the procedure or not? It is recommended that those who have thin, uneven, or over-plucked eyebrows will benefit the most. As well, those who want to have perfect-looking, matching eyebrows without any effort on their part can benefit.
The Perfect Shape Each and Every Day
What women are enjoying the most about semi-permanent eyebrows is the fact they are able to enjoy perfectly shaped, full, and natural looking brows every single day with literally zero effort. They can wake up in the morning and their brows are in place, looking great, and don’t require any additional steps at all.
Obviously, this is great for those who are pressed for time and don’t want to be fiddling with creating a brow each morning, and it’s also perfect for those who find it difficult to shape their eyebrows and then have them match up.
Why the Shape Matters So Much?
If you’ve never really been one to do much with your eyebrows, you may be wondering what the fuss is about. Why put all the work into eyebrows in the first place? Well, eyebrows act as the frame on your face. They can provide a lifted look and help to balance out other features. It just helps to complete your look whether you are the type that wears no makeup or a full face of makeup.
Stay On Trend without the Time and Effort
At the end of the day, semi-permanent eyebrows give women a way to stay on trend with the latest eyebrow styles each and every day, without putting in any time and effort. This convenience factor alone is enough to catch the attention of many women.
