This might be my niece Elizabeth’s favorite post ever (she’s my niece, but she’s 24). Looking back I should have just let her write it for me. She is SERIOUS about eyebrows. You know how they say you know if a person is trustworthy within 10 seconds . . . it takes her about 2 seconds – she just has to look at your eyebrows.
So in order for you to gain her trust I wanted to share with you a little secret I’ve found.
First let me tell you that until I was about 15 my eye brows were out of control. the more I grew – they more they grew, the more directions they went, they crazier they looked, and the closer we got to a uni-brow . . . no joke. So one day my friend Ashley pinned me down and plucked them for me – put her knees on my shoulders and took some tweezers to them bad boys. It’s funny to look back on because she is very tom boyish and I am very girly now, but she someone had the tweezers down before me.
I felt instantly refreshed, more like a lady, and put together so I haven’t looked back. Fast forward 13 years (let’s act like I said 3) and add a niece who recently graduated from beauty school, and felt like I had this eyebrow thing down. I had a routine . . .
once a month I visited a professional waxer to have them shaped and trimmed up (this is now my niece, and if you’re in the Indianapolis area send me an email so I can get you in contact with her) – then once a week I use my tweezers and keep them in shape. I don’t fill them in except for special occasions – because they’re dark and thick already they don’t need it. I definitely recommend it if you’re aren’t as thick as mine – like I said I do use it for special occasions.
But what I do use daily is this gel. That shape I keep talking about . . . this gel makes your brows stay there. all.day.long. it doesn’t feel chalky, watery, thick . . . I don’t even know it’s there all day.
What is your eyebrow routine?
Even Monday’s look better when delivered with a bow. Which is why I helped put together a bow-tastic giveaway with three bow-themed prizes. Now even Monday’s look pretty!
