Eyebrows can give our face a lift without having plastic surgery. On the other hand if the eyebrows are bad they seem to stick out like a sore thumb.
Robert Sweet William, known as the “brow man” says, What I always tell my clients is, change your haircut, your color, your makeup, but the shape of your brow always stays the same.”
Quick story: When I was in my 20s I decided that an electric beard razor (it wasn’t my beard razor it was my husbands, in case you’re wondering) would be a great way to trim my bangs. I combed my bangs straight down in front of my face and proceeded to trim. When I brushed my bangs back I realized I HAD NO EYEBROWS!! True story.
I could write a book about some of the crazy things I’ve done but needless to say it took a while for them to grow back and they’ve never really been the same. Lesson learned.
Don’ts of eyebrows:
Don’t have drawn-on brows, they make you look hard and old.
Don’t OVER pluck!
Do’s of eyebrows:
Do invest in good tweezers (I did not know this). Your tweezers need to be sharp.
Do tweeze after a shower. The warmth of the water softens skin and relaxes pores.
Do always pull in the direction of hair growth. This makes them easier to extract.
Do use short feathery strokes when filling in your brows with a pencil or brow powder. I use a brown eye shadow to fill in my brows.
To help shape your brows purchase an eyebrow stencil kit. They are goof-proof. Also remember it’s also better to go too light vs. too dark.
Having your eyebrows waxed is a good way to get rid of stray eyebrow hairs but they will still need a little plucking.
Do you struggle with your eyebrows? Have you noticed them thinning as you age?
