How to Refine Your Eyelashes and Eyebrows

It is no secret that long eyelashes and eyebrows are associated with youth and health. With celebrities such as Cara Delevingne bringing the fuller eyebrow to the forefront of fashion - much like Audrey Hepburn in the 1960’s - brow envy is stronger than ever, especially if you struggle to get your arches into shape. EYELASH TIPS It can often be confusing when choosing what products to purchase, to get your quick and easy, longer and thicker lash and brow fix. Massacres in all shapes and sizes claim to give dramatic and striking changes to the way your lashes look. But here are a few tips and tricks that could improve the look an health of your eyelashes. Brush your lashes It might sound a little strange, but you can actually purchase little combs that you can use to comb out your eyelashes before applying mascara. This will keep your eyelashes smooth and can actually help to make them grow – the results can be fairly rewarding for something that is so easy to do. Use Vaseline. Although it may take a while to see the results, applying a small swipe of Vaseline to your eyelashes before you go to bed, will increase your lash growth. Don't pull. It is important to find the right mascara for you that lasts all day, but is still fairly easy to remove. Taking off mascara that clings too heavily to the lash can stunt the growth of your lashes. Be careful not to pull or tug on your eyelashes when washing your makeup off, as this may undo any of the hard work you have done into making your eyelashes beautiful. There are also heaps of lengthening mascaras and lash accelerators on the market. Although some have proven to be very good, they can often take a long time to see changes. While these products can be beneficial on a day-to-day basis, you might be looking for something that can give you an instant quick fix, that they cant provide.

EYEBROW TIPS There are a few easy sets to shape and maintain your eyebrow shape, which can transform the appearance of your face drastically. It is important to know the dos and don’ts for good brows. Filling your eyebrows. Those with deep-set eyes should fill in their eyebrows with a pencil or powder that is two shades lighter than your hair and for round eyes: make sure to match the eyebrow pencil shade with your hair. Softening the brow, if you have small eyes, means that your eyes will appear bigger, so try to choose a soft shade of brow pencil or powder. For adding a striking and glamorous quality, opt for our Apollo Eyebrow tint, or simply keep them looking sleek and defined with an Eyebrow Re-shape or trim.
