...from the Tweezers!
I am about to COMPLETELY embarrass myself.
I am going back, way back to 2003.
And showing you all my TRAGIC eye brows.
I am hoping to get you all to understand the importance of learning HOW to do your eye brows from a professional and that skinny is NOT good for the brows.

(Yikes! I cannot believe I am showing you these pics.)
2003 and 2004
Brows are non existent, uneven, anorexic and just UGLY!
2005 and 2006
Clearly I like the surprised look and am digging a High Arch. And really??? How did I manage to be even thinner in 2006?
2007 and 2008
In 2007 my brows were scared of each other. I mean, HOW much space between them did I need? Luckily in 2008 I realized I needed some hair in the grand canyon and you can see the growth.
The year that I decided to GROW out my brows.
Then groom them myself.

I clearly thinned my brows out again...but they weren't anorexic

Starting to grow the inner brows a little thicker while maintaining a high arch

Good solid shape, like my arch, brows pretty even

Brows maintained for three months.
In early 2011 I was ready to put down my tweezers, see a professional, wax and use product.

I saw my brow lady for the first time a couple days before this pic. Waxed and using product. Working on GROWING in more of my brows. Was told NO plucking. Period.

LOVING my brows. Still slim but great shape. I have learned how the brows REALLY shape the face and highlight the eyes.

I was out on leave and had not had my eyebrows done in about 4 weeks. A little big but pretty and full.

Finally had my brows done the day before. Hair is all starting to grow in the same direction.
And a pic from a few days ago. It has been five months and I feel like I am getting better and batter at maintaining the brows. I LOVE using product and I only pluck the very random strays.
If I can give you any advice it would be to break up with your tweezers. I did, and I could not be happier.
I see an Anastasia waxer at my local Nordstrom.
I use all of the Anastasia products and I cannot get enough of them. I have the powder, pencil, highlighter and tinted brow gel along with the stencils (which have been a life saver).
Leave a comment if you have any questions!
This has been an amazing process that has taken restraint (from plucking) and patience! But I LOVE my brows now! LOVE!
