The power of your brows!

brows

A lot of people tend to underestimate exactly what their eyebrows do for their face, why? I’ll never know!  But what I do know is that beautifully groomed eyebrows really do transform your face and if something takes very little time and also makes a huge difference to your appearance, then why not invest in it!

Doing my eyebrows almost comes as a second nature to me and I genuinely can’t imagine myself ever leaving the house without my brows done especially since it only takes about 5 mins! But I should probably ‘fess up in case it ever comes out in the near future; there was a time in my life where I would spent almost 40 mins doing my eyebrows alone, I’d use hair removal cream, tweezers, brow pencil,  brow shadow and the whole shebang!! But looking back at my old pictures now, I can honestly say that all my efforts didn’t really do me any justice!

Over the years I learnt that less is more and that the less time I spend on my eyebrows the higher the chances of them turning out to be a tad bit normal!

The picture above is basically a sketch of what an ideal brow should look like. The first line represents the start of the brow, and this should be aligned  with the inner corner of the eye and the side of your nostril. The second line is the arch and it really does break my heart to see so many people getting this all wrong!  The arch should always be two-thirds of the way across the brow so unless you dress up as a drag queen  from time to time, there really is no reason why you should have your arch anywhere else. Finally,the last line represents where the brow should end and as you can see it doesn’t extend past the corner of the eye.

It’s that simple!

I have seen some cases where  people barely have any brows due to over tweezing and other cases where the brows are too far a part. All that can be fixed by adding a few strokes of a light eyebrow pencil. I like to use a brow shadow with a brow brush on top of my pencil because personally I think it adds more definition to my brows but at the end of the day, it all comes down to personal preference. Lastly use a brow gel to keep all the hairs in place, if you have extra long hairs on your brows just use baby scissors to trim them off.

Now that I’ve gotten all that off my chest, let’s have a bit of a laugh! Here is a link I found  of a few celebrities without eyebrows:

Are you still convinced that eyebrows don’t make a difference?
