Eyebrow Transformation and Tips

Not only are eyebrows “in” right now, but they are so important in shaping your face. Eyebrows can literally make or break you!

Ever since I started getting my eyebrows done, I’ve always had uneven eyebrows. One person messed up my eyebrows and they’ve been messed up ever since. When I was younger I also used to pluck my eyebrows and that did NOT end up well (who else has fallen victim to this?)
Here is a picture from those horrible eyebrow days (I apologize for the bad quality):

Besides being uneven, they were so thin and the shape was terrible.

Fast forward a couple of years and this is what they look like now:

You can see that they are still a little uneven but they have come a far way! I know that my eyebrows are nowhere near perfect, but I still wanted to share some tips with you guys!

Tips on eyebrow grooming and maintenance:

  1. Find an eyebrow lady that you like, and stick with that person! Do not let anyone else touch your eyebrows.
  2. Tell your eyebrow lady exactly what you want and how you like your eyebrows.
    • I always tell mine that I want to work on evening out my eyebrows and she works with me and tells me exactly which areas I need to grow out.
  3. Use castor oil to grow out certain areas – I’ve linked the one that I use below (it does work)
  4. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN YOU TWEEZE
    • I only pluck the growth that is farther away from my eyebrows, just to CLEAN my eyebrows.
    • I NEVER ATTEMPT TO SHAPE MY OWN EYEBROWS
      • Trust me, you might think you know what you are doing, but all it takes is one wrong pluck for you to mess it all up.
  5. Filling in brows:
    • Pencil=more natural and more control
    • Pomade=darker and more defined, less fine control
      • I personally use Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Chocolate
        • It is my favorite!! It’s crazy because I never used to fill my brows in but now I feel so weird if I don’t!
        • It has some red undertones so it isn’t too dark/deep of a brown but still rich enough for my tan/brown complexion
