Ever since I discovered thick, angular eyebrows make your face look longer and slimmer, I have been really particular about my eyebrows, but after 6 months of trying to grow them with minimal intervention, I decided it was time to visit the brow bar at the mall, which proved to be a huge mistake. You see, despite asking the gal not to touch the thickness of my eyebrows, they were thinner than Kelly Taylor’s were back in the 1990s when she was done with me.
I was not happy.
And since I still wasn’t over the horrendous experience I had last summer, when I walked out of a different brow bar with jet-black eyebrows that DID NOT match my strawberry-blonde hair (true story), I decided enough is enough, and from this point forward, I’m going to do my eyebrows myself.
But before I can do that, I knew I needed to learn some basics, and since I don’t want any of you to go through the ridiculousness that I’ve experienced in relation to my eyebrows, I decided to share 5 fantastic tutorials to teach YOU how to shape and groom your eyebrows properly as well. I love all of the different tips and tricks each of these tutorials offers, and after finally convincing myself to splurge on a proper set of tweezers (I got the Tweezerman LTD Stainless Steel Slant Tweezer in HOT PINK!), I finally look like a normal human being again. Good luck!
