It’s all about the arch, baby!
By Sheena Shaw
Eyebrows can tell a lot about the person you are. You can have the “I’m surprise” eyebrows or even the “hey baby” eyebrows. Oh trust, that the arch is important. You can use wax, razor, tweeze, or thread to accomplish the perfect eyebrows.
Every person has their own preference of what is best for their brows, but keep in mind your skin could be affected as well. Waxing sounds quick, but it could be quite painful. Hot wax on a stick and a strip of cloth doesn’t sound like the ideal spa trip, but pain is beauty. Unfortunately, in my experience I had an allergic reaction. I know right, my luck. Ever since that tragedy, I tried another approach. I decided that using a razor blade would be suitable.
Using razor blades is so dangerous if your not careful. Also, note that you have to know the way an eyebrow is supposed to be shaped because one false move will have you looking like Whoopi Goldberg. Remember to put some type of water and soap on the brows to avoid razor bumps. Tweezing can pinch skin and it’s very tedious to do. If you do not remove the hair in the direction it lays, it will feel like someone is ripping your skin off. It is best to buy a good pair of tweezers so it can catch the hair. Always soothe the skin after with a type of lotion or alcohol.
One of the most heard about eyebrow method, that I must admit I have never tried, is threading. Beauty specialists use a cotton thread to pluck unwanted hair. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove an entire row of hair, resulting in a straighter line. The result can last for 2-3 weeks.
For the money saver out there, you can always use your concealers to cover those misbehaving hairs that stand out. Now, if you do decide to use some form of make up, please blend. I cannot stress this enough. BLEND, BLEND, BLEND! Not only will you have irresistible eyebrows, but also you will feel like a better person on top of that.
