There are tons of resources out there on how to groom eyebrows and they’re all super helpful, but the problem is they all pertain to people who actually have eyebrows. Maybe I’m exaggerating a bit here. I have eyebrows, let’s be clear, but they’re almost nonexistent. They’re patchy, the color is a dull blonde/brown, and I just don’t have that profound Megan Fox arch I’ve always dreamed of. My best friend on the other hand, has insanely amazing eyebrows and is told she resembles Megan Fox all the time. What. The. Hell. In fact, we went to get our nails done one time and I was approached by one of the salon employees in the middle of my manicure with this unsolicited question: “Would you like to get your eyebrows done?” Um, I’m sorry, what is it about my eyebrows that makes people want to ask me that? So that’s when I decided to fix this problem.
And there is a solution, my friends. For all you ladies lacking lustrous eyebrows (nice alliteration, huh?), I’ve discovered the trick. Here’s how to groom your brows:
Step 1: Let them grow out. A lot.
Step 2: Brush them upwards to prep for trimming.
Step 3: Trim.
Step 4: Tweeze.
Step 5: Brush the hairs all in the same direction.
Step 6: Sharpen your brow pencil.
Step 7: Fill in with a brow pencil (or powder).
Step 8: Finish with brow gel.
Use clear brow gel or a tinted one that matches your hair color to finish off the look. This will help make them look even more natural. I like to also rub the gel in with my finger afterwards to keep it subtle.
