BEAUTY BASICS | Eyebrows

Wednesday, 21 December 2011


Eyebrows. They totally frame the face. I happen to be very particular about my eyebrows, and if they aren't in a good state, I get in a strop! I get mine professionally threaded at a local Brow Bar, and these can be found everywhere, from malls to beauty salons! I'd definitely recommend this method of grooming, because it leaves the brows looking clean and perfect. If you like doing your eyebrows yourself, I'd advice you to first allow a professional to thread them, so you can have a guide of how your eyebrows should look, then if you want, you can just pluck the new growth yourself in between visits to the professional.

Here's my rough guide on how your eyebrows should be shaped if you are going to shape them yourself (By either threading, waxing, shaving, filling etc..)!


In the Tutorial, I show you how I achieve my ideal shape, by filling in the gaps and perfecting the area around the brows! Enjoy! :)

You're a braver woman than me Shirley. I cannot STAND the pain! I got mine threaded once and I tell ya, it was once too many. *le sigh* Love the vid though!

You know I have been thinking about trying threading. I noticed a place in the mall here that does it. Your brows are so perfect! I am super jealous:) I am going to give it a try.
