Hint of the day: eyebrows, everyone!

A few years back, I got a gentle but still tough to hear tip from a girlfriend, and it was this: You know, you need to draw your eyebrows in.

It may not sound like a big deal, but it was!  I had thought my make-up routine was A-ok, and to be told I was missing a piece made me question the whole operation!  The truth was that I had been committing a mistake so many of us do: overlooking the frame.  I did a little research, then bought the tools and filled in my “half-brows”.  The result?  I looked like my hair colour wasn’t a mistake, and my face for some reason looked a lot more memorable.  Thanks for the tough love, friend of mine!  Since then, I have been filling my brows in a dark brown every day, and it takes about 5 seconds a side.  I have also given my Mom the same advice, and she fills hers in too.  Whatever kind of brow you were born with more likely than not needs some attention.  Unibrow is not the only thing we need to take care of.  I have sparse brows myself, and no real arch.  My Mom on the other hand, has strong brows with a great arch, but they still need some attention.  I found a great brow tutorial if you’d like to brush up on brow care.  It takes a minute, but makes a big difference!

Here are my "before" brows: see how they disappear halfway?

...and after!  Can you see how they extend all the way?  I'm on the left btw, but the girl on the right has great brows for sure!

  1. I JUST started filling my brows in with a powder and they are almost identical to yours without a fill in. They just get sparse halfway through lol especially when I’m keeping up on my brow care and shape. Can’t leave the house without at least a bit of mineral powder and my brow powder now 🙂 Love your tips!
