My cousin once said to me that she believes the key to a woman's beauty are her eyebrows.
I used to never pluck/fill in my brows and man were they bushy and very fobby looking. But now I pluck them and clean them up whenever it gets messy because it can really give make a difference. When I don't clean up my brows, my eyes start to look tired and small, but I noticed that when I tweeze and shape them, they definitely bring life to my face.

1. naked brow, i just tweezed them and there's still some thin hairs around! i've been looking for a good home wax kit. we'll see.
2. i start by filling in the ends of my brows because usally that lets me test to see if my powder is too dark or not :P but filling in at the ends is usually a start for most girls too.
3. with my eyebrow brush outline my brows from the beginning and to where it meets up with the ends.
4. lastly, i fill in the rest and blend it in to make sure the lines don't look too harsh.

I use the Ardell powder. You can find this at walgreens or cvs, this one came in an kit with arch stencils. Usually I dip my eyebrow brush into the second and third color. i usually use the first color underneath my brows to neutralize it, that's why there's so much of it gone! :)

A few tips when tweezing:
///////////////////////////////////////////
1. Sanitize your tweezer. Oils from before can cause breakouts! (i've learned plenty of times)
2. After you are done tweezing, put toner onto a cotton ball to wipe up the mess and close up some pores :) Or simply cold water on a cotton ball if you don't want to use toner.
3. Let your brows rest and get the redness out before applying moisturizer or anything.

I never plucked before, it was too painful. But my boyfriend had me thread my eyebrows (the left one grows funny and I always complained about it) and I LOVED it and since them I started plucking. I lost the shape though, I need to reshape them.

Hey leslie! Great tips. How did you like the arch stencils? I've always wanted to try it but I have heard some bad reviews on it .. By the way I've tried the vinegar and dish soap trick to lure the fruit flies and it worked! It only killed one, I was waiting and waiting for more to fly in lol, I might change the location of the dish. thanks for the tip once again :)

I would agree that eyebrows are the key to beauty. I always have to fill in my eyebrows if I wear makeup or else I would look soooo plain. It gives definition to my eyes=D Unfortunately I have naturally light ass eyebrows so I have to do alot of filling! And they're kinda jacked up from all the years of overplucking when I was a dumb kid. Haha. You can barely see them if I don't fill them in. Your eyebrows look really good. I'm jealous. Hehe.
