They say the eyes are the window to the soul. That may be true, but it would also mean that the eyebrows are the frame. It’s no secret that eyebrows can make or break a look. They provide definition to the face, enhance other prominent features, and bring a youthful lift when shaped and shaded correctly.
There are a handful of ways to augment the brows, some more permanent than others. Choosing to enhance your eyebrows through any of these temporary, semi-permanent, or permanent makeup methods, can save time in your daily routine and provide a feeling of confidence in knowing that your face is always beautifully framed no matter the circumstance.
A semi-permanent treatment like Powder Brows lasts 1-2 years and is done using a tool that applies a layer of pigment onto the skin. This is great for shading sparse, thin areas and provides a soft, almost velvety look to the brows. This method gently supports the shape and color of the eyebrows without overpowering the face. This technique can also be used to create Ombre Powder Brows. The result of ombre is that the outer corners of the eyebrows have more pigment and are more defined than the front of the eyebrows. This gentle fade provides a bit more definition at the ends and can be mapped out for symmetry and a perfect shape.
Next is Microblading. This is a less permanent option than Powder Brows as it requires touch-ups every 6 months-1 year. It is perfect for providing more definition, or creating the appearance of more hair in thin areas or even where there is none at all. This technique uses a blade to create hairline strokes that are then filled with pigment, matched to your needs, in order to create the appearance of depth, fullness, and more eyebrow hair. At Coco Med Spa, Halley is a PhiBrows artist which means she will be able to beautifully map out the perfect semi-permanent brow shape specifically for you and your features to create symmetry.
Of course, if you’re not ready for the full commitment of a semi-permanent or permanent makeup treatment, one of the simplest ways for a temporary enhancement is an eyebrow tint. This service is fast, non-invasive, and lasts about 6-8 weeks. A skin-safe vegetable dye is used to add depth, color, and definition to the brow and is a low commitment way to try out brow enhancement.
No matter what you choose, it’s hard to deny the convenience and confidence of having eyebrows that are ready to go at all times. Saving time and product is never a bad thing either, right? Your service provider will consult with you to determine the best enhancement method for your permanent makeup for eyebrows, lifestyle, and commitment level. All you have to do is enjoy the benefits of your gorgeous new eyebrows!
