Penelope’s question: How do you pluck your eyebrows so they won’t be over-plucked?
I have to admit that I go to get my brows waxed. I then follow the shape that the waxer has done when I pluck a few strays between waxes.
The universal tips for plucking all include grabbing a pencil. The space between your brows should be equal to, or a little wider than, your eyes. To find where your brow should go, take a pencil and hold it parallel to the side of your nose. Where the pencil meets your brow is where your brow should begin. To find the end of your brow, extend the brush diagonally from your nostril, following the outside edge of your eye toward the brow. Where the inside edge of the brush hits is where your brow should end.
It’s not too expensive to have your brows professionally done. I would recommend you go and do that and have the professional show you exactly what she is doing so you have an easy guide to work with. If you get a little pluck crazy, don’t worry. There are products that can help!
Senna Cosmetics’ Form-A-Brow Kit ($43) was a huge hit with the ladies when we reviewed it. This kit comes with easy-to-use stencils so you should have no trouble finding your perfect arch. The powders are the highest quality, making it worthy of any makeup artist’s kit. I know a bunch of women that have bought these for friends that have undergone chemotherapy. This is a great do-it-yourself kit.
