The Importance of Eyebrows

Many women spend a huge portion of their daily routine working on their eye makeup, because that is where the eye naturally falls. We make eye contact during conversation, to indicate interest; our eyes are very expressive, so we highlight them. That’s all well and good but have you seen what a person looks like without eyebrows?

Like the photo says, eyebrows are more important that you think. They work with the eyes, framing them. They are one of the most expressive features of your face, and need some tender loving care every so often!

One of the biggest mistakes women make with their eyebrows is over plucking. The follicles in your eyebrows are very sensitive, so if you pluck too much, it takes a long time for those hairs to grow back; they might not ever grow back at all! So, don’t go pluck happy. It could cost you your brows! Now if only upper lip hair were that sensitive…

If you have already over plucked, just stop! Give your brows some recovery time. For the time being, fill in your eyebrows with pencil or shadow. Following up with clear mascara helps hold your faux brows in place, and helps them blend into your natural browline.

One of the common mistakes men make is thinking that because they’re men, they shouldn’t groom their eyebrows, like it’s too girly or something. I’m not saying go pluck and shape them, but a guy with a nice set of eyebrows has an advantage! At least address your unibrow. You can do it in the privacy of your own bathroom so no one has to know that you pluck occasionally.
