I spent a good part of my life not thinking about my eyebrows at all. I mean, they were neither really thick (like Brooke Shields' brows), nor a skinny line drawn on with pencil, like so many older women I would see.
A few years ago, I noticed that they were a little bit sparse at the ends, and sort of heavy on the part near my nose. The place where I was getting my hair cut did other beauty-related things, so I tried getting my brows waxed. BIG MISTAKE. My sensitive skin bled, and I walked around with two bright pink lines near my eyebrows for two weeks.
Then a place near where we live advertised brow-threading, so I gave that a try. Uncomfortable, but not bloody, though I still had the telltale pink lines.
So I decided I would take care of my own brows, by tweezing them. That, however, didn't work because even with a magnifying mirror, I couldn't see well enough in the mirror to tweeze them ... and I couldn't tweeze them while wearing my glasses!
Yesterday, I decided that enough was enough, and called the local Blue Mercury to ask if they tweezed brows. I was able to schedule an appt this morning. Success! The woman who did my brows was very nice, very careful, and she did a wonderful job. You can bet I'll go back there!
And it's funny, but all day when I've caught a glance of myself in the mirror, I feel like I look a WHOLE LOT better. Maybe I do, and maybe I look exactly the same. But I feel like my brows look a whole lot neater.
Now I just need to figure out what product works best on them. For a while, I used Anastasia Brow Powder Duo, in the Strawburn shade. I like it, but decided to try something less involved. I've had luck with Bobbi Brown products when I've tried them, so when I say they had a new Brow Shaper, I decided to give it a try. But it seems to deposit too much product onto my brows - maybe I have a heavy hand - so only time will tell.
In the meantime, at least my brows look better on their own ... :-)
