In the dynamic landscape of beauty, one often neglected aspect deserving our attention is the world of eyebrows.
Navigating the world of brow styling can be a bit trickier than mastering eyelashes, in my opinion!
As we gracefully age, mastering the art of brow styling becomes more nuanced and requires a tailored approach.
Many of us have experienced the challenges of taming them, which, let's be honest, aren't always naturally cooperative (especially if you've ventured into experimenting with them before, and who hasn't, right?).
I too have navigated the insecurities that accompany the evolution of my brows.
There's something profound about realizing that while inner beauty is paramount, the visible changes in our brows (and our whole face & body) can impact our self-confidence.
Suddenly, your brows start to fade, and your face doesn't look quite the same...
You start noticing more and more tiny changes in your appearance and it takes a bit of time and love to get used to it.
Whether you have a couple of breakdowns along the way or take it calmly - it becomes a call for a pivotal change.
Age, biology, and perhaps some past overzealous plucking contribute to the transformation of our brows.
With age, the eyebrow hair follicles become senescent, often producing thinner, finer hairs.
Around the time you reach your 40s (for some it's 50s or 60s), your levels of the hormones estrogen or testosterone start to decline. And with that comes hair thinning (including your eyebrows and eyelashes) and hair loss.
Thinning and unruly behavior become part of the narrative, challenging us to find a way to celebrate our timeless beauty without resorting to heavy makeup.
Today I have prepared some tips - both “skincare” and make-up, so you can navigate this change in your brows like a real superwoman.
These will help you achieve natural yet perfectly enhanced brows that frame your face beautifully.
End your day by applying BrowCare+ Eyebrow Serum. Yes, about an hour or right before bedtime. I suggest a thin layer only to your upper lash line.
Apply your serum onto clean, dry eyebrows, making this a mindful ritual that extends beyond beauty – a moment of self-love that sets the tone for your nighttime routine.
I somehow have come to believe that when you are mindful during such processes, your body responds differently. I find the same thing happens to me in the gym - if I think about my arms getting more toned and truly focus all my attention on them whilst doing the exercises - I notice results quicker!
Always put your BrowCare+ Serum next to your usual nighttime products - moisturizer or toothpaste - so that you don't forget to apply it! Remember, consistency is key!
A holistic approach to healthy brows starts from within... Hear me out!
Ensure your diet is rich in nutrients, as what you consume reflects in the vitality of your brows (of course less as you age). Hydrating well and including foods high in biotin, like organ meats, eggs, nuts and avocados, will help you reach optimal results!
Now, let's be completely real here...
It can help but honestly as I have gotten older (and my diet even better!), my brows still showed signs of thinning and losing pigment.
So a great eyebrow serum like BrowCare+ does all the necessary work for you! It's the proper nutrition your brows wish to get.
As most of us don't have much 'eyebrow material' to work with, we need to start with drawing our base.
Picture this: a brow pencil that effortlessly enhances your natural brows, stays put even through a sweaty afternoon, and looks like your own brows!
What's not to miss? Easy application with precision and ease (yes, even with shaky hands)!
Our InstantBrow+ Eyebrow Pencil is more than just a make-up tool - it's a statement of timeless elegance.
And it's honestly the best I have used for my brows as I really need that triangular-shaped tip!
In short - a great eyebrow pencil, brow pomade, or shadow will do the work! Choose a colour that's not too dark, you can always build it up if you wish!
If you are one of those lucky ones who still have bushy eyebrows - step this step with confidence!
Brow gel provides definition to your brows and makes them appear fuller and more lush for the duration of the day. It's like a mascara for your brows!
Our latest innovation PowerBrow+ Tinted Eyebrow Gel complements your ageless allure, providing depth, definition, and a natural touch of color to your brows.
And yes, girls, I have some tips!
PowerBrow+ Tinted Eyebrow Gel is your perfect tool for embracing your brows' natural shape.
Use gentle strokes to enhance without overdoing it, allowing your brows to frame your face authentically!
It won't be too rigid or cement your brows so don't be afraid to apply a second coat if that feels right!
By combing the gel evenly through your brows, you'll be blending in any product that has already been put beforehand for an effortlessly chic look - one that suits the modern mature woman best!
The brush is perfectly made for this step as it doesn't load a lot of product. The first strokes lightly tint your brows and the following strokes help you fixate them in the desired direction and blend everything together.
PowerBrow+ effortlessly adds definition without the need for heavy makeup, giving you a polished appearance that's quick and easy!
I know so many of you are busy during the week and love to have fewer make-up products to think about.
And even if you aren't running around like crazy and everything isn't written out by minutes - I know my Rumi ladies value simplicity.
And I completely agree - having fewer products that can create the most beautiful make-up look is what a modern woman, in my opinion, strives for! When creating Rumi products, I always keep it in mind!
In a world where the modern woman no longer desires to hide behind layers of make-up (thank God!), Rumi Cosmetiques offers an exclusively limited range of products that honour the natural evolution of YOUR beauty.
As your body changes as you age, so do (or at least should, in my opinion) your beauty products.
Embrace your age, work on your health, happiness, and confidence, and let your brows, lashes, and skin tell a story of timeless celebration. Pour into your own cup, revel in your unique beauty, and let Rumi be your companion on this journey of self-love and authenticity.
I love how our by-monthly Confidence Challenge celebrates just that! If you want to be in our wonderful community and receive more of this loveliness - sign up for our newsletter (at the very bottom of this page) & follow us on Instagram!
What started as a blog about brows, turned into something so much deeper and more beautiful - a space to share our message, a space to connect and remind you that it's truly time to romanticise your life, pay attention to smaller details and find joy in the smallest of things - even if it's just a new hair strand on your left brow - it's still something!
Until later, ladies!
