Its all About the Eyes: The importance of a Beautiful Eye Brow

January 9, 2008 at 10:05 am 4 comments

How often do you see a woman with an odd shape, color, or lack of eye brows?

I am reminded of the women I see weekly at church services.  While I should be paying attention to “Higher Thoughts” my mind wanders and I study the faces of the women sitting around me.  Please forgive me!


My own brows have always been very thick and dark, with several stray hairs between my eyes and above the brow line.  Tweezers have always been my best friend. 

In the last few years, my eye brows have started to lighten (yes, a few grays are in there), and are not growing in as thick.  The texture of my brow hairs are a bit coarse and don’t lay down as smoothly as they used to.

And, what do you do when you go a little tweezer-crazy?  You know what I am talking about.  Many times, with very good intentions, I will pluck one too many brow hairs and create a bald spot or gap in my brow line.  I have a very good friend who goes a little too crazy on the area between her eyes.  I suppose she must be unibrow-phobic, and as a result over compensates for it by plucking her brows a bit too far inward. 

I recommend investing in an eye brow kit.  Beautiful Makeup Search wrote up a great post today about a basic set from Anastasia called “Brows in Bloom.”  I own their “All About Brows” kits and love their Tweezers, it is a great investment for anyone who loves and uses tweezers regularly. also carries a similar product to Sephora’s “Brows in Bloom” called “Anastasia Brow Ex-press,” and this includes the 4 eyebrow stencils and costs 10 dollars more. 

The Anastasia Kit is fabulous, but for a gal on the go, which is me most days, a little impractical for everyday use.  What I usually need is a product to slightly darken and smooth my brows in one quick step.  Their are several Tinted Eyebrow Gels/Mascaras on the market, to make this possible.

One thing I always took for granted, was the beautiful frame great eye brows create for your face.  It is an indispensable part of any beauty routine, but you have to do it right or else, the odd shape, color issues, etc …

How do you tame those eye brows of yours?

    I tweeze and use the tweezerman ones. Very handy and not too harsh. And lately I’ve been so lazy I do nothing else with them but a bit of clear mascara brushed in to keep them in line.

    I have heard good things about the NYX and NYC brow kits though and they are pretty darn affordable. 🙂

    Great post. Keep up the good work Jen!

    Great suggestions BB! Clear mascara, that is on my to-get list.

    NYX eyeliner pencils are almost identical to the Urban Decay 24/7’s for about 1/3rd of the price.

    You are awesome!

    Nice to hear from you Simmi! Do you have a favorite brand of tweezers? I too could not live without mine, and a good magnification mirror 😉
