Eyebrow powder: The gentle filler for brows
Eyebrow powder is one of those items of eyebrow make-up that is super simple to apply. With powder you can shape your eyebrows in the twinkling of an eye. Unlike eyebrow pencils, you don’t need to practice to use powder. You can get perfect brows with powder even if you have no artistic talent.
Eyebrow powder creates a more subtle effect than eyebrow pencils. It does not simulate individual hairs but rather shadows the eyebrows. Powder stays on the skin and clings to the fine hairs, thus creating an optical effect similar to a shadow. However, for the result to look convincing after applying eyebrow powder, there must be a certain number of hairs present. If the brows are very thin or there are distinct gaps, a different type of eyebrow make-up is more suitable, such as an eyebrow pencil.
What do you need to watch out for with eyebrow powder?
Powder can dry out the skin. The fine components of the powder stick to the skin and absorb moisture and oil. Therefore, eyebrow powder is perfect for oily or combination skin. The powder not only defines the eyebrows, it soaks up excess oil and mattifies the skin.
When using eyebrow powder, you should also note that powder does not have the same coverage power as an eyebrow pencil or gel. If your eyebrows are very pale or you want to change the colour of your eyebrows with make-up, it would therefore be better to go for an eyebrow gel. Unlike eyebrow powder, eyebrow mascara does require a little practice but it covers the natural colour of the eyebrows well. If you want to define your eyebrows quickly and easily as part of your morning make-up routine, powder is a good choice.
Choosing the right shade of eyebrow powder
The colour of most people’s eyebrows is somewhat darker than their natural hair colour. The shade of the powder should only be slightly darker than the hair colour so it does not look unnatural. In addition, you should consider your skin tone when choosing a shade of eyebrow powder. The eyebrows should always look somewhat cooler than the skin tone. The brush with which the powder is applied is also important for a perfect result. For a precision application, it is important that the brush is not too soft. If it is too stiff, the powder cannot be distributed evenly. Parfumdreams has a wide selection of eyebrow products at great prices, so every woman can find the perfect product for her requirements.
