As we age, it is important that you start to pay special attention to eyebrows. Afterall, your eyebrows are the ‘coat hangers of your face’ and can completely transform your whole look.
Here Kintija Belska, International Brow Expert and Co-Founder of Everlasting Brows shares her expert tips on how to Anti-Age your Eyebrows to achieve a more youthful look:
HIGHLIGHT YOUR BROW BONE
A simple and quick trick that can work wonders for everyone is applying a touch of highlighter, just below your brows to accentuate the brow bone. This is a daily ritual that I personally swear by, and if there's only one thing you can do to enhance your brows, this should be it! The transformation is truly remarkable as it instantly lifts the brows, giving your eyes a brighter and more captivating look. Don't underestimate the power of this effortless step for achieving beautifully lifted brows and enhancing your overall facial appearance. My favourite product to achieve this look is Everlasting Brows Highlighter & Concealer Duo, £7.95 from www.everlastingbrows.com.
ENHANCE YOUR EYEBROW SHAPE
As you age, it is crucial to maintain well-shaped eyebrows that complement your face. Consult with a professional Brow Artist who can analyse your facial features to help you achieve a flattering eyebrow shape. Avoid over-plucking or creating overly thin brows, as fuller brows tend to be more youthful-looking.
Over time, eyebrows may become sparser, losing their density and definition. Use a brow pencil that matches your natural hair colour, such as Everlasting Brows Predraw Pencils £7.95 (for a pack of 5) from www.everlastingbrows.com to fill in any sparse areas. Apply the brow pencil using gentle strokes to mimic the appearance of real hair, creating a fuller and more youthful look.
LIFT THE BROW ARCH
As we age, the skin around the eyebrows may start to droop, making the eyes look tired. Use a setting or brow wax, such as the Elleebana Elleefix Brow Styling Wax, £19.95 from www.everlastingatelier.com to brush the eyebrow hairs upward, creating the illusion of a lifted brow arch. This technique can help open up the eyes and give a more youthful appearance.
HYDRATE & NOURISH
Condition your brows on a daily basis for healthy skin and brow hair growth. Brow dandruff, and flaky skin are becoming increasingly common, however this can easily be avoided with a good daily brow care regime. Moisturise your brow area just like you would rest of your face with a nourishing brow treatment, such as the Elleebana Elleeplex Hyaluronic Boost Serum, £24.50 from www.everlastingatelier.com, this 100% pure and soothing serum helps prevent dehydration of the skin and hair to make it supple again. Apply it to your brow area before applying makeup or apply it as a brow mask before bed to give your brows some much needed TLC.
AVOID EXCESSIVE SUN EXPOSURE
Ensuring your eyebrows are shielded from the sun is crucial to avoid premature aging. While it's common knowledge that UV rays can lighten hair, making brows less visible, what's less known is that these rays can also harm the proteins in brow hair, leading to brittle, dry, and thinner eyebrows. Any sunscreen applied directly on brows will help prevent this.
If you have sparse eyebrows and are looking for a longer-term solution, you could opt for a professional treatment, such as Microblading, which can completely transform the appearance of your eyebrows. Microblading is the manual process of introducing semi-permanent makeup, in the form of coloured pigments, to mimic hair on the eyebrows. The treatment generally takes approximately 2 hours and will leave you with more defined, fuller and natural looking eyebrows. Results last for up to 18 months, after which time the pigment fades leaving a need for a booster procedure to revive the colour or you can leave it until eventually it disappears within a few years. Everlasting Brows Microblading treatment starts from £350 and is available at salons nationwide https://everlastingbrows.com/.
As eyebrows age, they tend to become dull, lighter in colour, and may also appear sparse. However, there's an effective solution to address this concern through regular brow tinting services. For optimal results, we recommend getting your brows tinted every 3 weeks at a reputable salon that specialises in brow services. This ensures your eyebrows will always look their best, regardless of your age. A simple tinting session can make a remarkable difference and enhance your overall appearance. An Elleebana Brow Tint starts from £ INSERT and is available at salons nationwide https://elleebana.com/salon-finder/.
Staying up-to-date with brow trends can have a transformative effect, making your eyebrows appear more youthful and vibrant. Among these trends, brow lamination stands out not only as a passing fad, but as a valuable service that beautifully grooms natural brows, particularly beneficial for those experiencing unruliness due to ageing (I can certainly relate!). This remarkable procedure sets your brows into a youthful shape that perfectly complements your face, while also lifting them upwards, resulting in a refreshed and awakened look. AnElleebana Brow Lamination Treatment starts from £ INSERT and is available at salons nationwide https://elleebana.com/salon-finder/.
Everyone’s eyebrows are unique, therefore it's important to embrace and work with the natural shape and characteristics of your brows to achieve the best results.
