I personally think that they are extremely important, after all, messy eyebrows make you look sloppy. I make sure to groom mine every day, plucking, brushing, filling in and of course adding clear wax/mascara to set.

I have really dark hair and really white skin, so my eyebrows (and upper lip…sigh) have to be maintained or else I just look like Bigfoot. So I pluck them pretty religiously, and go to the waxer every couple of months to catch any strays or the near-invisible ones that I miss, yet which love to attract my eyeshadow. I also fill in any sparse spots, and if they’re being particularly unruly I’ll use a gel to slick them down. But I don’t do stenciling, laser removal or anything like that, so I guess I’m…average? Not sure.

I let nature take its course – since my brows are nearly in line, and are thick and lustrous enough (thank God!) But I do tweeze some hair around the lower portion to keep it looking neat – though this is not very frequent – more like once a month or so!

Eyebrows are very important to me. Unfortunately, my eyebrows were overtweezed by someone and haven’t grown back since. I use Paula Dorf’s Brow Stencil Kit along with MAC Espresso eyeshadow and it is awesome! I never leave my house without drawing my eyebrows on.

Eyebrows are HUGELY important to me. More important than the eyes. Nothing wrecks a great makeup look like wonky brows. I am a tweezing fanatic and even keep a pair in the car … for some reason, when the sun streams in the side windows I notice all sorts of extra hairs. I always comb them and fill them in with Anastasia brow powder. If I have extra time I’ll put on brow gel.

I try to keep them natural, only plucking in the center. I think a lot of women make the mistake of overtweezing. It’s much easier to fix someone’s eyebrows who’ve been underplucked then overplucked. I do brush them out and fill in anywhere that seems sparse with an eyebrow pencil a shade lighter than my own brows.

i tweeze some, but not much. i need to trim them though because they get long and then they freak out and go everywhere! its out of control

eyebrows make a huge difference in the way we present ourselves, and sloppy ones make us look almost uncouth and tribalistic. i’m not joking! well-trimmed brows are vital to looking good-it makes us look fresher and just so much better.

If I let nature run it’s course, I’d look horrendous.. So it’s waxing the eyebrows + constant plucking.

Mine are naturally well-shaped, so I just have to tweeze a few strays every couple weeks and I’m good. If I mess up in the slightest though, I freak out. I also fill in the outer half of them… for some reason it’s lighter than the inner half o_O

I think eyebrows need to be put in their place. I’m Chinese and my g-pa has graciously passed on some triangular eyebrows that exploded, they would work if i was old and wise and didn’t give a shiet but HELLS NAW. when i look @ my driver’s license pic i feel like they’re taking over my face HAHAHA yeah, seriously they were growing down onto my eyelids HAHAH maybe i can get of my brother’s which are like the same :]
I got them waxed and then have started plucking them in place. I actually keep them more thick than most pple do but i think it looks more natural, plus thin eyebrows take a lot of maintenance. I don’t color them in bc then i’d look like a man, but they’re aite now πŸ˜€

thanks! Christine! <3

I’m just a tad obsessed. I tweeze between waxes, I always fill them in (except for really really natural looks, or when I’m too lazy to do any makeup- but if I only have time for one thing before I run out the door, it’s brows). I find myself drawn to other peoples’ really nice brows and irritated by bad ones. Haha!

Unfortunately I can’t let mine be like some lucky people, mine are sparse and get bushy so I HAVE to groom mine. All I do though is tweeze them and trim the tips so they don’t go all over the place. I started doing this when I was 13, and my mom taught me about “training” them by pushing the arches up after you wash and moisturize your face, it really helps but it takes a while.

Eyebrows are so important it’s not even funny. If I had to choose 3 things to put on before leaving the house, it would be my brow stuff (Lorac Take a Brow in Dark Brown), blush, and lipgloss. So polished and beautiful.

Brows really frame the face and eyes and will make or break a girl! I get them threaded and do some light tweezing in between. The one thing I can’t stand is unnatural brows (for the most part, brow pencils) and people that use black (dark brown or smoky gray black please!)

My mother has medium blondish brown brows that have never needed any grooming a day in her life. They are naturally perfect. Got my brows from my darker haired dad, sadly…

Mine were thick as a teenager. Looking back at pictures I now realize they were the perfect “heavy” brow. I tweezed them into oblivion in my 20’s and now in my 30’s am learning to love them. I tweeze the strays and trim the ends so they don’t end up super long. I also fill in the sparse (overplucked) spots with a long-wearing non-smudging pencil, and groom with brow gel. Hard to find these products in shades for redheads but I get by.

I try to make them look as natural as possible while still looking well groomed. See my link above, and scroll down to the skincare post, for a picture.

Can we talk about eyelashes? Mine occasionally fall out in patches if I use the wrong product (or benzoyl peroxide) on my face. I never learned to put on fake ones because my natural lashes are long and thick and just need darkening.

I love the MAC falsh eyelashes.. i have full lashes too but they’re fun to wear if you’re going out for a special occasion. Try them!

I have thick, black eyebrows that would turn into unibrow if not contained and shaped. Eyebrows are hugely important to me and I can’t and won’t leave the house unless they are groomed. I had the top faint hairs above my eyebrows and the area between my brows lasered. I get the actual brows waxed every 2-3 weeks b/c I can’t stand stray hairs. They show up on me b/c my eyebrow hairs are so thick and black…but I love they are that way b/c I get lots of compliments on them!

Last, I’m obsessed with Anastasia dark brown brow gel and I get them waxed at the Anastasia counter at the Nordstrom near me. Anastasia rocks!

I’m blessed with nicely shaped eyebrows (it’s the Indian genes!) but I still get them threaded every 2-3 weeks. Maintaining your brows is a beauty-must I learned from from my mom and aunt early on!

I love getting my nose waxed! So awesome. Then again, I have the kind of nose where you can see they are there.

Aim, have an MA at a mac counter show you, it’s pretty easy. Create a little bubble with the adhesive, you don’t want too much or it won’t dry clear. Run the bubble along the edge of the lash, let it sit a minute to dry (some people blow on it to pass the time), then when it’s slightly tacky place it as close to the lashes as you can. It’s better if you curl your lashes and apply mascara before, then you can use a clean mascara brush to fit the lashes in with yours.

Thankfully I donΒ΄t have to do very much. My brows are a nice shape, so I have to pluck only one or two hairs every few weeks,thatΒ΄s it.
