Everyone has that one eyebrow that never lets them down… the one that doesn’t misbehave and let’s you fill it in perfectly (even on the days when you’re running late for work). Well this is an appreciation piece for that good brow. Let us take a moment to identify areas in which our not so good brow can learn and grow from the example that her sister (not her twin) sets. Let us learn to love and appreciate them as the individuals they are. Understanding that we must do our best to allow them to be themselves and not shape them into arches they are not meant for. This is not only unflattering to them, but also to the pallet that is the face. But in all seriousness-shout outs to the good brow!
Here are a few tips for you to create the brows of your dreams:
1. Find the appropriate color and medium for the brow you want. For example, those who want a natural look should use a brow pencil as opposed to a powder or pomade. It creates subtle strokes that look like hairs as opposed to a harsh line. For more bold, dramatic brows, you should use a pomade to outline and the desired shape and a powder to fill it in. Some of my go to brow products are the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade and Duo Brush #12. The angular brush helps me to create any shape I desire (bold or natural). Also, I could probably never do without my European Wax Center “Sucha Tweeze” Slant Tweezers. The quality and shape of the tweezers allow a more precise and effective grip.
2.The most common thing I hear from my clients is their desire to grow out their brows. The best advice I can give for this is leave them alone! This means you’ll go through an ugly duckling phase when you have sparse little hairs that won’t look as polished as you’re used to. That’s part of the growing process you have to live with. Also, try to avoid putting heavy oils that you heard will help grow your brows back. They usually just create congestion and ingrowns in the brow area.
3.If you want good brows, see a professional. Every woman has an eyebrow horror story. Whether it was themselves or another (unqualified) individual who messed them up, it could’ve been prevented by simply booong an appointment with someone who can give you a proper consultation about the state of your brows and where you’d like to go with them.
