When you think about it, it makes sense. When you engage with someone in the eyes, and the brows are one of the most prominent features in your line of sight. Your eyes tell a story after all, so don’t spare the details around them.

Apart from this, it also has other functions, and can help you become more attractive as it can emphasize parts of your face.  Eyebrows can shape the face, accentuate the eyes, and can even play a powerful role in communication.

Unfortunately, not everyone is born with perfect eyebrows. These days, thankfully, there are ways to make them more aesthetically pleasing, including trimming, shaping, and filling. There are even more advanced ways available, even ones that are more permanent and without the use of cosmetics.

I have been going to Browhaus probably for almost 10 years now for shaping and trimming. A franchise from Singapore, the grooming chain is a pioneer of microblading. The tattooing technique has gained popularity in Manila in the last few years.

For 15 years now, this brow expert has been perfecting its microblading technique to achieve what it calls the “transformational power” of the procedure. This can improve the eye area, including lashes that need a little length or lids that need a big lift.

They have the knowledge, skills, tools, and expertise to give you the eyes that you desire. Here are a few of what they can do:

Brow Resurrection

As needs differ from client to client, this procedure is customized after consultation with their experts.

I had their most picked type, the 2.4. It’s popular because it makes your brows look so natural.  This results in finer-looking hair, and more natural-looking brows that last a year or so.

Browhaus has mastered this technique of brow contouring and embroidery. Their enhancement techniques  and strand design has been perfected to mimic real brow hair. They employ an FDA approved vegetable dye, making it safe for all skin types.

I felt no discomfort during the procedure so if you have a low tolerance for pain, I would recommend the procedure. As a result, I have more defined natural looking brows.

Brow lamination

This is the first time I’ve heard of this revolutionary brow perm, which lifts, sets, and styles. I think that it’s perfect for men as it creates a more fluffy, fuller, slicked-up and editorial high-shine brows.  

I don’t need to use extra brow fillers or enhancers. I was quite excited to try this new service as not a lot of brow salons would have this.

The procuedure originated from Russia, and many Hollywood celebrities have tried this trend; Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, and Dua Lipa all have these bold, edgy-looking brows.

The process took about 50 minutes, with a three-step process technique. The first thing they do is to lift the brows with a perming cream. Brows are being brushed upward to fill any small gaps while defining the arches at the same time. 

Second step is to set. A neutralizing cream is applied to keep them in its full position. As a finishing touch, the Browhaus undercoat lash and brow condition is applied. It moisturizes and nourishes.

Eye define

This semi-permanent treatment lines and defines eyes, making it appear brighter and fuller. They use a single needle machine to lightly etch the surface of this skin. It deposits the same vegetable dye to create a more defined and semi-permanent eyeliner that lasts for three to five years.

Now that holiday is upon us, this is the perfect time for you to consider fixing your eyebrows and making that bold statement about your eye. Here are some benefits of having a more defined, fuller and picture perfect eyebrows.

1. Frames the Eye

It is true that the right eyebrow shape can frame and flatter the eye. If you have the wrong eyebrow then it will just make you look aged or tired and worst angry. We don’t want that right? The shape and thickness of your eyebrow are critical for you to look fresh.

2. Puts Symmetry to the  Face

When your eyebrows are not symmetrical, it can throw off your facial balance, making one eye appear larger than the other. It changes the whole look of the face, so well-structured brows that are more symmetrical make us look more pleasing.

3. Refines Your Look

A well-groomed and maintained eyebrows can create a more polished look. So if you want that clean and more refined look then you better fix your eyebrows quick. For men, it can be less polished and made more manly by doing brow lamination. It works not only for women, but also for men.

4. Corrects the Flaws

Whether your eyes are too small or eyes are too far apart, the right brow shape can do the job.  The right brow shape can also add lengths to the face or even define your face. Hence, your eyebrows should only be touched by experts.

5. Make You Look Younger

Last but the least, and certainly the most important for me is to make me look younger. Eyebrows that are beautifully groomed can be your anti-aging secret. And it is also instant, too! A proper eyebrow can lift your face and make the eyes appear larger and fresher.
