As we get older, just as the hair on our head can begin to thin, so can the hair that makes up our eyebrows. It’s not uncommon for women to begin losing their eyebrows, even at a young age. Also, after years and years of plucking and waxing, many women find that the hairs just don’t grow back anymore, and would now like the appearance of a fuller, shapelier brow.
So what’s a woman to do with these disappearing eyebrows? Luckily, there are a few options. For those of us that want a more permanent solution, permanent makeup will do the trick. Permanent eyebrow makeup application is on the rise. And groomed eyebrows are now considered a beauty must for any woman…or man.
Permanent makeup is essentially a tattoo. The ‘makeup’ is applied by a skilled makeup artist using a feathering technique which can simulate the look of real hair be creating extremely fine lines. The result is a soft, natural look. The advantages of permanent eyebrow makeup are that it is permanent (obviously), looks natural, and never needs to be applied again. Disadvantages—price. It’s not the cheapest route to go.
If you are looking for a more cost effective solution to your thinning eyebrows, Stila has a great fix for under $20. Brow shadow is a great way to compliment your existing brows and add a little ‘oomph’ to thinning or sparse areas. Stila makes a wonderful brow powder kit with two shades, one light and one dark. Choose the color that matches your brows or mix them together to find your perfect shade.

It doesn’t have to be Stila, many other well known makeup lines make similar products. I didn’t find one with Cover Girl or Revlon however. Regardless, for under $20, you can turn drab brows to fab brows!
