If I start thinking about eyebrows before I go to bed I won’t be able to sleep.
They fascinate me.
I am completely open to so many different kind of eyebrows and trust me when I say there are no brow rules that apply to every girl! I think women look gorgeous with everything from big thick brows to pencil thin ones. Although, through the years ladies have come to me with brows they did not like or feel comfortable in and they didn’t know how to fix them. That hairy stuff above your eyes is a powerful thing and there are a few common pitfalls that can really distract from the natural beauty and balance of a face.
So, naturally I wanted to share them and explain the possible downfall of certain brow shapes and how to fix them.
TIP: If you have been plucking the same hair for years it may not grow back fully so whatever info I give about where to regrow applies to using an angled brush/brow shadow and fill in instead.
This is Megan with her real brows. Gorgeous. Although, she sometimes has a higher arch or a thicker brow and those are perfect too…
Plucking the space between your brows is good, but I recommend not getting carried away.
It can make your eyes look farther apart and your forehead look out of balance.
This is a bit of an exaggeration but I really like bold brows so the only way it becomes a potential problem (IMO) is when they become a distraction and take the focus away from your other features. You don’t want your brows stealing the show! Plus the sparse ones in your brow bone can make eyeshadow look chalky or uneven.
p.s. I know I misspelled sparse below but it’s midnight and I don’t have the energy to fix it..maybe tomorrow…spelling OCDers shield your eyes!
2 biggest problems with over-plucking is that they are very difficult to keep up (who wants to be plucking all that hair every day!?) and it is also hard to keep a good shape. I also think having a little more substance in your brow can draw attention to your eyes and give you more true expressions.
Thin with flair.
The main problem with these guys are that they can be un-natural looking which makes them distracting.
I prefer a more soft and natural brow on most people. Plus they are usually pretty thin and require a lot of upkeep.
So do you guys agree/disagree? Have other brow tips?
Talk to you soon! I have a REALLY fun post i’ve been working on that I am 98% sure will be done by tomorrow!
