Chances are, you’ve never had full-on Carabrows, but you’ve probably over-plucked at least once (haven’t we all!). A few years ago, the full brow trend came back in full force and actually stuck around, proving not to be a “trend” at all. And unfortunately leaving the skinny-browed gals among us wondering how we’d ever recover from bad wax jobs and bring our brows back to their former glory!
Luckily, The Pink Ladies have 3 tips to help you transform your brows from weak… to fleek!
1.) Put down the tweezers. We repeat: Put. Down. The. Tweezers.
It usually takes about three to four weeks for eyebrows to grow back from a shaping, good or bad. But, if you have thin brows, it can take up to three months or more. The best advice is patience: don’t be tempted to pluck the “odd stray hair” just stop tweezing and give your brows a chance to grow back.
2.) Get your hands on some LiBrow serum LiBrow is the second chance you never thought your eyebrows would get. No other eyebrow conditioner on the market uses true cosmeceutical technology to give you full, bold brows. It’s Physician formulated & clinically tested and we stock it in Phoenix stores nationwide!
3.) Fake it till you make it We love to use powders for the illusion of thick brows until they actually do grow back thick! You can easily manipulate how bold you want them to be, just be careful not to apply too much brow powder. Pro tip: Your brows should never walk into a room before you do.
White eyeliner is making a decidedly non-80’s comeback. Didn’t you hear it’s the new black? No matter how you choose to apply it, it’s a fresh, eye-brightening look that instantly makes you look more awake. And couldn’t we all use the visual likeness of a shot of espresso every once in a while? Are you nodding your head but don’t know where to start? The Pink Ladies have compiled their top 5 favourite white eyeliner techniques for you (note: they actually work!)…
On your waterline When applied on the inner rim, white liner causes your eyes to appear bigger by extending the white colour of them. This technique works on everyone but can be especially effective on an oriental eye type to help widen the eyes. Opt for a super-creamy pencil to avoid irritating that sensitive part of the eye.
Blended into the inner corner Try tracing the inner “V” corner of your eyes, then use a small liner brush to blend a shimmery cream shadow over top. Instant eyes that POP! Yet still understated enough for an everyday option.
On the lid Use a white liner all over your entire eyelid. Blend it out with a fluffy eyeshadow brush and then apply your eyeshadow as usual. The white base will really cause your shadows to stand out, be more vibrant and also last longer – win, win, win!
Dusted Lower Liner Smudge a tiny bit of white eyeliner underneath the waterline and blend out, for a muted, yet effectively brightening look.
Shaping Eyebrows and Highlighting Brow Bones White eyeliners can also be used in shaping your eyebrows i.e. applied around the outside of your eyebrows to help create more definition for the shape you want. In addition, you can use it for highlighting your brow bone. Apply it just below your brow and then slightly smudge it along this bone.
