Eyebrows are important features on your face
They determine the impression of yourself that you give to the others.
According to the shape, the intensity or the color of your eyebrows, people will perceive you differently.
For example, how would you describe a person with eyebrows like below:
Sad or miserable or negative may be the words that pop up in your head.
Whereas what about the next one:
Thick and intense eyebrows give powerful, energetic or youthful impression.
So you have the control on deciding what impression you want to give by shaping your eyebrows. However you still need to respect your natural shape; the basic actions to do your eyebrows are : leaving what you need, removing the rest, filling in what’s missing.
A face trimmer perfect to shape your eyebrows
Many western women go to a beauty / wax salon or eyebrow bars to have their eyebrows shaped properly, while in Japan, it’s really not seen as something that requires so much care; why paying for services when you can do all by yourself using common tools!? You just need to know how to do it and what to use and in a proper way.
So here is a tool that you can use like many Japanese people, nothing innovative, just common and convenient: a face trimmer.
I highly recommend the use of this product for its numerous qualities:
- easy and not dangerous to use, unlike regular razor, thanks to the protection
- catches even the very fine hairs that you cannot tweeze
- sets a defined length to trim all your eyebrows (that’s the detachable comb in the 3rd picture)
- can be used on the whole face to get rid of the downy hair on the face
- can be used for men eyebrow grooming too
- its pocket size makes it convenient to carry everywhere
Talking about the downy hair…
I’m sure you noticed, in a sunny day in your bathroom, when looking in a mirror your profile, this peach fuzz creating a shade on your face…
Removing this hair not only brightens your skin tone and brings transparency but also has dramatic change in the skin care effect and make-up: without the downy hair, the cosmetic products that you apply on the face penetrate better and directly the skin, therefore your skin is better moisturised and nourished. If you apply some foundation after, it sticks better to the skin, so it will last through the night.
In Japan, barber shops have a shaving service for ladies to treat this downy hair and this tool is the home version!
I created a tutorial on Youtube, explaining the step-by-step usage of this face trimmer.
