One of the things she brought up was eyebrows. Something I know a little about - as you can see for yourself.Okay there are so many things wrong with this picture - the crazy spiral perm, the dark eye makeup - but that is for another time. Today we are focusing on the brows.
My mom taught me early in my teen years how to use tweezers, as the thick eyebrow gene runs in our family. I hate to tweeze - it hurts so bad!! I once heard Elisabeth Hasselbeck say that she loves to tweeze her brows in bed because it relaxes her so much that she falls right to sleep when she's finished. That is the craziest thing I have ever heard!!
As I was looking for a picture, I found so many I could share of how not to shape your eyebrows. I found pictures of the not tweezed enough, the afraid to get a uni-brow look so I tweezed too much in the middle (see the left eye in the picture) and my favorite of all - the over tweezed (so sad). Maybe I will share them some other time, but I think one picture is enough humiliation for one day.
It has been a long uphill battle, but I think I finally have my arsenal of products to tame my woolly brows and finally shape them properly. I think it is important to have someone shape them for you the first time to get you on the right track. Once that is done here are two products that have been lifesavers for me.
To keep my brow shape from getting too thick or thin I use these Anastasia stencils. These are great because there is a stencil for everyone (High Arch for me). You can buy these at Nordstrom or order them here.
So that is my two cents on eyebrow grooming. Now I am off to read Karla's post again - why don't you check it out with me?
