Brow Magic

By Melanie

I love a good eyebrow. As a former Aesthetician, I've seen the good, the bad and the UGLY!

A properly shaped brow can do wonders for the appearance. A good brow can make you look younger, prettier and make your eye's stand out. Think of the brows as a frame for your face. A bad brow, well....just does nothing for you.

How to get the perfect brow:

Three measurements to do BEFORE waxing or tweezing. Take a pencil up to your face and line it up to your nose like the photo below.

  • #1 is where your brows begin.
  • #2 is where the arch goes.
  • #3 is where the brow ends.

This guideline will help if you're waxing your own brows or just doing touch ups with the tweezers between your brow appointments.

Other guidelines to follow:
  • Keep it natural.
  • Fill in with a brow powder and use clear mascara to keep the stray hairs in line.
  • Trim the hairs with little scissors. Don't let them get like spider legs!
  • If your getting them done by a professional and they don't look amazing, don't go back to her/him!!! Also, take a photo next time to show the aesthetician, just in case.

  5. Oh beautiful girl, what a fab self help guide! That picture of PA has made me half giggle, half cringe at remembering being at a old friend/skanks house late one night and her housemate came into the room, WITHOUT EYEBROWS. Seriously. She wore so much foundation that she had to wax off her brows and draw them on.

    Have a stunning eyebrow filled week xoxo
