Relax when it comes to eyebrow hairstrokes

E-mail Print PDF
Eyebrow_hairsEyebrow hairs grow more like a meteor shower than soldiers in a row tilted like the leaning tower of Pisa.  They are thick and thin.  Brow hairs are both solid and translucent.  They are different colors and shades of the same color.  They are short and long.  They grow up and out and down and out.  They overlap and cross each other.  They merge, like cars into traffic on a freeway.  Where they converge the color becomes dense and dark.  The skin is visible underneath sparce hairs and invisible under a thick blanket of hairs.

There are no "solid" brows in nature.  Only a meteor shower of hairs.  And when they're gone, on goes the makeup. Or better yet, we have a chance to help restore the shape and color that's gone missing.  Eyebrows are the ultimate challenge and you'll do well to study them closely.  Get a book like "Secrets to Drawing Realistic Faces, by Carrie Stuart Parks" and practice drawing faces, including brows.  Those who do calligraphy can tell you that the pressure aBrows_Before_After_Convention_AAMnd duration of each stroke will allow you to make "hairs" that taper from thick to thin.  Needle size, configuration and depth help us get finer hairstrokes.  Colors provide dimension.  Patience and practice will reward you with pleasing brows with texture and dimension.  Subtle, "you'd never guess they were tattooed!" eyebrows.  Do yourself a favor.  For best "no orangey" results use the Kolorsource™ NuBrown Eyebrow colors and save 25% on a kit of 10 colors today. For eyebrow hair highlights, try Yellow Flesh or Neutral Flesh and make a fine line next to your hairstroke at the top 1/3 only.

Deep Set Eyes? Glamorous Granny? No Problem.

E-mail Print PDF
Grandmother_Glamourous_eyesDeep set eyes?  No problem.  Purple eyeshadow?  No problem.  This 75 y/o granny wanted both.  She is thrilled with the result. Eyeliner (3 years old) with Kolorsource NuBlack.  Eyeshadow (3 months old) Kolorsource Plum Mist.  Don't shy away from Eyeshadow on grannys.  Use a #5 Slope® needle (digital machine preferred) and brush in the color.  The needle should barely be out as the eyelid is incredibly thin.  Their skin will bruise temporarily. The result?  Great looking eyes.  Smoke and Plum Mist are my favorites!  Add a drop or two of Neutral Flesh to lighten eyeshadow.  Use NuBlack alone or with Brunet for black eyeliner without any blue undertones.  I use a lot of Black Suede for a rich, dimensional black eyeliner too.
