Growing up, I always wanted to pluck my eyebrows. At the time, I felt I had been cursed with the bushiest biggest eyebrows a girl could have. My mom would not let me pluck them. She told me about how she plucked hers way back when, when the style was thin, and she regretted it. Plus, Brooke Shields was the hot beauty and fashion icon at the time, and she kept telling me how I had the same eyebrows.
Well, needless to say, much like SO many things, I have to admit. Mom was right. And I’m glad I didn’t tweeze and pluck them all back then, because now, I have eyebrows that people comment on… as in weekly. I kid you not.
Part of it is simply good luck and good genes. You either got em or you don’t. My daughter got them. In fact, it’s kinda a joke in our family, but one of my cousins and I have the same eyebrows, and we identify them with our last name. And when my girl was born, the first thing I said to him when I talked to him was, “She got the eyebrows!”
But bold thick beautiful eyebrows are the hot thing in eyes.
Beautifully groomed bold brows I will say is one of my favorite things when it comes to beauty. It frames the face and can totally transform the whole look of a face. And, it’s a distinct feature for sure that’s not duplicatable, either. You’re brows are unique to you!
So how do we get this look if we aren’t naturally blessed with great brows of our own?
1. Get an eyebrow gal. In other words, ask around. If you see someone with amazing eyebrows, compliment them and ask who does them. I cannot TELL you how many times I get stopped for my eyebrows, I’m not kidding! I have a set appointment literally every 3 weeks for a full out GROOMING appointment. She trims, waxes, plucks, the whole 9 yards.
2. If you don’t have an eyebrow gal, here are some tips and tools to make your brows beautiful on your own.
