Natural, thick, thin, shaved, drawn on, etc. I'm talking about eyebrows. People seem to love to discuss eyebrows, as there are many tips and tricks, products to use and advice on how to pluck, wax, sugar your brows. I honestly can't remember a time before the late 00's when eyebrows were such a hot topic!
Meagan, why are you boring us this? Well, my dear readers I am curious about the sudden brow debates and people putting in their two cents, especially about those of us who 'enhance' our brows. I was reading a friend's comment that said, "This girl would have been really cute, but I don't know why she does THAT to her eyebrows!". Grant it, it's a personal choice to find another person attractive, just as much as it's that person's choice to do whatever they want to their face.
Mind you, I'm not trying to BROW beat you with this topic! *Badumching* (sorry I had to)
There is a reason why I fill in my brows, I am a natural blonde who over plucked in the 90s/early 00's and all I'm left with are little stumps and no tails for eyebrows and a unibrow if I don't pluck. I've done it all; plucked, used wax strips, sugared, shaved, phew! I'm exhausted just thinking about it. If I don't fill in my eyebrows, I tend to look a little odd, which I never noticed until a friend suggested it while getting my photograph taken. I never realized how much it changed my face and thus my experimentation with the brow powders, pencils, waxes, etc. started.
Natural - Thin, but filled-in - Almost non-existent
My routine with my brows has changed drastically and I have my good days and my bad days when it comes to filling them in, especially getting the tail drawn on evenly. I use a brown water-proof gel liner by Rimmel and I line the top and bottom of the brow and fill in with a brown powders with an angled brush. My routine is much like the photo below.
Not shown is lots of blending, dropping my brushes and I usually make a giant mess. My brows are not perfect, but neither am I. (And if my brows offend you, it's okay they are just judging you anyways...I kid! I kid!)
So, what do you prefer for your own eyebrows? Do you have any tips and/or tricks to share? Are you brow obsessed?
Thank you for reading!
