Beauty trends come and go throughout the years. Some are fads that don’t last very long, while others stick around for ages, providing timeless advice to women through generations.

This year, some of the biggest beauty trends have been about the eyes. Specifically, the best ways to make your eyelashes and eyebrows stand out. Recently, there’s been a shift from thinner, less prominent brows to fuller, more noticeable ones. Same goes for lashes. While women have always been after longer, stronger lashes, this year we’ve seen an ever greater emphasis on achieving this look.

Eyebrow Shaping

Your eyebrows help define your face and display your emotions, in addition to protecting your eyes from dust and dirt. The eyebrows are having a major moment this year, so you’ll want to make sure that yours are looking spectacular. You can use your eyebrows’ natural shape to better define the lines. 

To find your best eyebrow shape, start by holding a tweezer to the outermost part of one nostril and straight up to your eyebrow; this is where your eyebrow should start. Next, hold the tweezer horizontally across the top of your brows to ensure they’re the same height. Finally, hold the tweezer diagonally from the outermost part of your nostril to the outermost part of your eye; this is where your eyebrow should end. You can mark the areas in white eyeliner to show you where you need to tweeze or wax.

Once you’ve cleaned up your brow shape, you can fill them in with an eyebrow pencil or powder, especially if your eyebrows are on the thinner side.

Microblading 

If you don’t want the hassle of having to fill in your brows every day, there is another option: microblading. This procedure essentially “tattoos” eyebrows on your face. The artist creates a shape for your brows, then fills it in with hair-like lines drawn across your eyebrows. This semi-permanent procedure lasts between one-to-three years. If you opt to go this route, be sure to do your research and find a skilled, recommended and sought-after microblading professional to ensure that you get the results you want.

Fake Eyelashes

Fake eyelashes are nothing new. But stronger, longer, darker lashes have been very popular this year. If you’re looking for a temporary solution to boost your own eyelash look, fake eyelashes are simple, cost-effective solution. They come as a full set of lashes, or you can opt for individual lashes to provide some thickness is more sparse areas on your lash line. False eyelashes are applied with a special eyelash glue, making them easy to put on for a night on the town or a big meeting. You can simply peel them off when your day is done as you’re removing your makeup.

Eyelash Lifts

Like your eyebrows, you can also give your lashes a longer lasting boost with an eyelash lift. An eyelash lift adds definition and curl to your natural lashes, and it lasts about two months. With an eyelash lift, you can save time in the morning by foregoing using a handheld eyelash curler. Simply swipe some mascara on your already curled lashes and go!
