Val, how do get your brows done?
Question of the Day
Valerie how do you get your eyebrows done? Is that your natural arch? Do you fill them in?
I kid you not I’ve been asked these questions none stop since the 6th grade. I have to admit, when I was younger I had a unibrow…Yes haha laugh! …thanks Dad. I hated it.
My eyebrows are naturally thick and arched. The thickness I get from my dad and the arch from my mom. I can say that they are the highlight of my face. Its like ..you look at me… and BAM!! there they are lol
When I first started to get them done, my brother-in-law would do them for me with one of those razors that the barbers used. I would get a clean look but the hairs would grow back super quick. Then I started doing them myself with tweezers and a magnified mirror….smh..FAIL! lol I messed them up badly. Please take my advice: If you are using a mirror with magnification, please remember to pull away once in a while to check your brows..or you will get carried away.
When I started highschool I started to experiment with waxing. I would go to salons. they would come out jacked up.. So all through high school I would just tweez lightly to maintain a shape.. nothing big but I wasnt happy.
One day about 3 years ago while walking at the mall I discovered Threading. I sat there infront of the threading place “Brow Art” just mesmerized by the demo on the tv. As soon as I got home I looked up YT videos because I wanted to learn like now! lol. I learned all right! Thank God for youtube.
I now alternate between threading: when I have time, waxing: quick fix & tweezing: to clean up.
Here some threading before and after pics
Before & After
I like threading because it so sooo precise. For me it’s painless..now at least. And I can go awhile without having to re-thread just tweezing in between.
I only fill them in when I have a lil bald spot from a mistake or if I am wearing heavy makeup ect.
My eyebrows are just another thing I ♥ about my face..maybe my favorite. lol
