Megan Fox - Perfect Brows!
“The eyebrows frame your face”. That’s something you may have heard before because… it’s true! Not only do they frame your face, they are one of the first things people see and they open up and define your eyes.
BUT, often there are brow-tastrophes.
Like the following:
1) Wooly Beast
Do you think it’s sophisticated or chic when you see a lady with caveman brows? Or God forbid the Frida? These are the native brows, never before tamed by the hands of professionals. If you are the owner of said brows, please stop scaring small children and clean them up!
2) Paper Thin
The reverse problem is just as bad, over-plucked! The paper thin, anorexic eyebrow. Poor things. Why do people go to this extreme. If that describes your brows…first – STOP. Second – grow them out. You can speed this up by buying a lash grower and put the serum on your brows every morning and night before bed. Then, (when they’ve grown back) visit a professional.
3) Baby Brow
Another common brow-tastophe…when you pluck too far inward, hence creating the itty bitty baby brow. Ah, isn’t it cute? NO! You should be able to hold a pencil straight against your nose and line it up with the edge of your brow. If the brow is short of the pencil, grow em’. Got it?
4) Holey Brow!
The fourth and final brow blunder is the one with chunks taken out and/or blatant holes. Kinda like the Beirut of brows (guilty of this one myself). Ladies, you fix this beauty disaster by using a great brow pencil. I suggest the Anastacia Universal Brown Pencil. Or the Perfect Brow Pencil (also by Anastacia, pictured above)
So now that we have those covered, let’s talk about fixing the problems.
Here are the two options:
Ulta/Benefit Brow Bar
1) Brow Bar
Ulta Beauty (at The Rim) and Benefit Cosmetics have teamed up to bring you the brow bar. You can set up an appointment to consult with a brow specialist. They will ask you (in very clear English) what you want to do with your brows before dipping anything in wax.
I prefer this to waxing because it doesn’t pull off those tiny hairs on your face. Everytime I wax there is a clear marker between the waxed and unwaxed part above my eye. (I might be hairier than most). Threading hurts about the same. I recommend visiting Monie and JcPenny Salon at the Rim. Yes, I meant to write JcPenny. You’re not there to shop so don’t worry about it.
I suggest visiting above professionals for regular maintenance and/or if you’re a brow virgin.
In other words, unless you’re really skilled at plucking, don’t try this at home.
Okay, I’m done brow beating.
