Every woman I know seems to have a love/hate relationship with her eyebrows. Some are waxing them, plucking them with tweezers, combing them, grooming them, and I have even seen people flossing them as a form of plucking. I have the opposite problem. I don’t even put tweezers near mine. I am trying to keep the little eyebrows that I do have! I have very fair skin, and my eyebrows are a white blonde with a touch of light brown. Don’t believe me? Please see Exhibit A.
I have to draw my eyebrows in. The eyebrow pens are awful because I look like I am trying to bring back the 1990’s eyebrow trend/ a blind person did my eyebrows. I even had a day where I was watching my toddler behind me in the mirror while applying makeup. I accidentally used 24 hour black eyeliner instead of the brown eyebrow pencil. I got some stares that day! I have now graduated to using a small angled brush and apply something that looks like eyeshadow on to my balding eyebrow area.
Ok, so here the is the dilemma. There is so much pressure to make my brows look the same. Both of them need to be twins, but most days I just go for sisters. Plus, how my eyebrows look defines my whole facial expression for that day. As we all know, eyebrows can speak louder than words. The following are all exaggerated examples of eyebrow drawings gone wrong.
Too flat= I look like Bert from Sesame Street or I am mad. It is like resting B face without even trying.
Too close= I have a unibrow
Too high = I look surprised all day.
One higher than the other =I look intrigued all day.
The struggle is real guys and the grass is always greener on the other side. I would loved to have enough eyebrows to pluck and get waxed. At least that way a professional could shape my eyebrows for me and I could just pluck when needed.
Point of the story, be careful judging how someone feels based on what their eyebrows are saying. They might have just done a bad job doing them that morning!
