Eyebrows for Chemo Patients is our Bella PINK Alert topic as October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For many women losing their hair can be more emotional than the cancer itself. The absence of eyebrows or eyelashes can be a signal that you are not well. The little bit of confidence that you have left can be boosted by bridging the gap between the ravages of cancer and the vegan side of beauty.

Not only are there cancer causing beauty products, but once you have cancer, there are the side effects of treatment. One of the biggest side effects is the loss of hair, especially eyebrows.

Don’t know about you, but when we look good, we feel much better. There is something to be said about wanting to look our best. Here are some of our ideas for creating eyebrows for chemo patients.

Create Your Own Brow with Makeup

  • Create eyebrows using vegan and cruelty-free makeup that is good for you. With a combination of the Bella Reina Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil and the Translucent Powder, you can create brows that look real. It is all about the hairline stroke and keeping the pencil stroke short.

Other clients comment that they love the range of colors, because we offer auburn, black and three different browns. Creating eyebrows for chemo patients is all about making the eyebrow look real.
  • Use a combination of colors, like light brown and medium brown, so that the brow has a 3D effect. Mark a dot from the side of the nose to the brow bone and start the brow. Use the eye to judge the arch. The end of the brow should taper off with a vertical line from the nose to the corner of the eye. Set the final brow with powder to hold in place.
  • If the techniques above seem beyond your makeup skills, schedule a makeup application with a special brow lesson. This can help you learn how to highlight your best features and cover the changes in your appearance from chemo.

Permanent makeup or cosmetic tattoos have been around for years. The perfection in the technique and the ink colors can help a chemo patient by creating gorgeous eyebrows. The skill of the artist requires that the colors and the shape appear as real hair-strokes and have a 3D effect.
