Eyebrows - What you need to know
Using make-up to create eyebrows
With a little know how and some practice you can create very realistic looking eyebrows or go for something bold and striking. Even if you have no eyebrow hair at all or your hairs are very sparse there will be a technique to create a brow that can work for you.
At Cancer Hair Care we really understand what a challenge it can be to lose your hair on your scalp as well as dealing with loss of eyelashes and eyebrows. Our experience tells us that it really is worth taking some time to explore how you may be able to use make-up to re-create brows.
The reason for this is that many women have told us that despite having a great wig or headscarf, it was the lack of eyebrows that revealed their hair loss and cancer treatment and so took away their privacy.
Advantages of learning how to re-create eyebrows
Reduces image anxiety – a lack of eyebrows can reveal to others that you are experiencing hair loss. This in turn may make you feel that you have to explain your circumstances and hair loss.
Communication - our eyebrows are one of our core non verbal communication tools. It really can help to use make-up on the brow bone as your face will then continue to use the brow to express and reflect your reactions.
Define your features – many women tell us that they use this experience to try something new, such as using new colours, to create their brows and define their facial features
Ways to re-create eyebrows
Over the last few years eyebrow shaping and make-up have become a real beauty trend. This is good news because the variety of good quality brow make-up has dramatically improved. Additionally, some trends encourage women to pluck most of their lashes out and rely entirely upon make-up to create their brow. This helps when experiencing hair loss because it means that items such as eyebrow stencils, wax kits accessories and specialist make-up are available on the High Street.
