First off, let me say, in no way am I a Fashionista. My sense of “style” – if you can even call it that – is comfortable. I’m all about jeans, flip flops, and comfy, flowy shirts. I rarely wear makeup and my accessory choices are my studded earrings and my heart pendent. My hair is a whole other story…It’s usually down or in a messy bun. I think you could say I rock the “Mom Look,” except I’m 22 and kidless. I suppose you could say I’m just practicing for down the road.
The one thing that I have learned over the years? Good eyebrows make for great confidence.
How your eyebrows are shaped and maintained can change the entire look of your face. For me, it makes a huge difference. That being said, I inherited my dad’s horrible eyebrows. They’re really wiry and when they grow, they curve outwards. And yes, I get that awesome unibrow every woman just raves about.
When my eyebrows aren’t maintained, they make my face look dirty because they’re so dark. And I become self-conscious that people are talking to the bush that’s growing on my face. I know, I know. I’m probably exaggerating about that part.
Personally, I prefer my natural shape, which is a bit rounded and of medium thickness. I’ve had thinner, but it makes my forehead look even bigger than it already does.
One other things I’ve learned – if you have to shade in your eyebrow, make sure you choose a color that matches the hair on your eyebrows. This is what I looked like when I accidently bought the wrong colored eyebrow powder and let a guy friend draw them on for me:
