All About Eyebrows

I used to get my eyebrows waxed every two weeks. Then it became every four weeks and gradually I stopped waxing them altogether. I just couldn't afford it anymore, plus I read that all the waxing can lead to wrinkles and other skin problems (which makes sense when you really think about it.)

Currently, I still don't wax them, and thanks to an eyebrow tutorial by Kandee Johnson, I can do them myself and I'm even more satisfied now than I was when waxing! I usually, really, sit down and do them maybe every two-three weeks. Once a week I usually have to do a bit of plucking.

When I sit down and do them, I use a spoolie, small scissors, an eyebrow razor and tweezers. (I use tweezers and scissors from Revlon, which are INCREDIBLE!) I start out by brushing my brows in place and using the razor to get rid of the little hairs surrounding my brows. I then use the spoolie to brush them up and I start trimming the hair with the scissors. Once I trim the hair to the length I want, I pluck whatever is needed.

The main reason I changed my eyebrow shape (only by a bit though, nothing drastic) was to suit my face. I have a roundish face, so sharper edges and a bit more arch help to balance my face out :)
