Alittle Bit of Brow Talk

Brows are such a powerful weapon for the face structure. Brows are like the frame of a picture, they always seal the face structure and always visible, front in center for everyone to see. When I decide to allow my brows to be free,bushy or go un-groomed for a while, I wonder what people are thinking in their minds. Like, "wow her eyebrows are really bushy, thick and need to be cleaned up..." But sometimes I have to let them be free and grow all over the place, due to one reason more than likely: A previous experience of allowing someone to groom my brows and they were not done correctly. I prefer a thick, full, simple shape brow, over a thin arch. Why? Thicker brows define the face more, plus I love the look of feeling beauty vintage from the 1950's and 1960's. I am in the process of learning how to correctly groom my powerful weapons (brows) right from my own bathroom. I rather mess up my own brows and deal with the annoying growth process for two months or even longer, than to have someone as mess me up. When I groom my eyebrows each morning, whether in the horrible growing back process or safistiedly perfect, I always do the following:
  • Brush brows upward and over into their defined shape pattern.
  • Apply a layer of brow gel to unruly strands of hair
  • Create more definition to the brow, by touching up with a brow shadow using an short angler brush. Magic!
Groom your own brows from home?
Here are some tips to consider.
  • Brush your brows upward and snip the tips as conservatively as possible.
  • Clear away obvious stray hairs.
  • Pluck between your brows—with restraint. They should begin just above the inner corners of your eyes.
  • Tweeze from underneath the brows to open up the arch, removing one row of hair from beginning to end.
  • Draw an imaginary line from the edge of your nostril to the outer corner of your eye: That's where your brow should end.
  • The less you do, the better off you are. A full, simple shape is most flattering.

Hi Nashe'! My brows were doing great, shape and thickness for two months after this post. Now, I am back to the bush, because the brows were trimmed to thin, ugh! lol Have you tried threading?
