A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
Kidding. My last confessions post wasn’t too long ago and it was still published in this galaxy, but I decided it was time to do something about my brows!
Now if you read my last confessions post, you guys will recall this man
and how he and I had similarities in our brows. Now, I know winter is coming and actually keeping my brows unruly and thick would benefit me cause they would help keep my face warm, but I just couldn’t stand the way they looked anymore.
Enter in: my tweezers.
I wasn’t and still am not ready to go and get my brows waxed/threaded so this was the next best thing. I mentally prepared for this self-inflicting pain and I knew the consequences of over-plucking my brows.
I’m giving you a written warning on my brows in these next images right now. This content may not be suitable for kids under 18.
These pictures aren’t doing my brow hair justice. I had so many hairs on my brow bone that I probably could’ve started to make a braid out of them. #TRUST
I used this shape chart to figure out my face shape and brow shape. However, I couldn’t decide if I was oval or round or maybe even a dash of diamond. So i kind of just went with a mixture of all three.
I then followed this eyebrow chart to see how short/long my eyebrows should be.
And then I got to plucking!
Lots of tears happened during this part…lots. But the end result was worth it. #chewbaccabegone
SO much better and cleaner. And obviously, happier.
On the left is before and on the right is after. What a difference!
I decided to get ready for work and then show you guys the completed look.
There is no product on my brows! When I do use brow product (which is only when I go out), I use the Zoey Van Jones Tinted Brow Gel that I got in my November Birchbox, I absolutely love it! In combination, I use a little eyebrow brush that I got in my LE Sonia Kashuk brush set!
I know it’s going to be a long journey on the road to eyebrows on fleek, but I’m making progress…one plucked hair at a time.
