Brow Envy

famous eyebrows

I’m an eyebrow girl. I know that sounds weird, but I promise you it’s not. I appreciate a good set of eyebrows and think that they change the entire look of your face. Brows that are too thin can age you and make you look like a Barbie doll (in a bad way), while brows that are too thick or unruly resemble a caterpillar.

One piece of advice my mother gave me growing up was to “never over-pluck your eyebrows”. This couldn’t be more true, and as I started to see girls my age over-doing it, I was glad I still had my original ones in-tact. Although I look back at photos of myself from junior high and even high school and cringe at my brows (and lack of makeup), I like to think that now I know what looks best and what doesn’t.

However, there is one thing I wish I could change about my brows- the shape. Some women have beautiful, natural arches, and some have thick and perfectly-straight ones. The truth of the matter is that my natural hair line only can do so much for me. If I were to let my brows fully grow out (this would take a few months) and then tried to re-shape them, I still wouldn’t be able to achieve a high arch because my brow hair doesn’t grow up that high on my face.

So all I can do is work with what I’ve got and envy these brows:

    I love this post! Besides being a stylist eyebrows are kind of my passion and I do them on the side for clients, friends and family. You’re right about them making a HUGE difference in the way someone’s entire face looks ^_^ xo
