Midlife Brow Maintenance
As we age (and after menopause ) we produce less of the hormone prostaglandin. This is the hormone that stimulates eyebrow growth. This can result in brows becoming thinner, the hair changing texture (often becoming a little more coarse), changing colour and the occasional longer hair can randomly appear. So for beautifully maintained midlife brows, invest in a good magnifying mirror and check which of the following tips are relevant to you.
1. Rethink the shape-
quite simply, thinning brows are ageing. Now is the time to book a professional eyebrow expert to tell you which shape is going to be the most flattering for your face. Tinting them will deal with random grey hairs and also make thinning brows appear thicker.
2. Skinny and sparse?
Now may be the time to consider semi permanent microblading if your brows really have stopped growing or if they are simply too thin. Our team’s results are beautifully realistic and natural looking – it’s a process you can be involved with step by step and is a far cry from old school brow tattooing.
3. Don’t go too dark -
When tinting or using brow pencil to cover greys don’t be tempted to go too dark with the pigment. Makeup supremo Mary Greenwell always says if in doubt, always choose the paler shade. You’ll just look prettier and more natural.
4. Beware of tadpole brows –
if the tale of your brow has thinned out - it’s not flattering on anyone so make sure you have a good pencil in your makeup bag for everyday maintenance in between appointments. Feather on pencil lines to make the brow look thicker all over.
5. Highlight the arch –
use our clever Arch Enhancer pencil to add a subtle lift to the eye area as gravity takes hold ! There’s no shimmer or glitter in our pencil – just a clever pigment that works on all skintones to make the brow look more lifted. No injections required for this anti-ageing makeup tweak we love.
