Girl, I don’t have much to say about green lip gloss (other than this: if you can pull it off, WERK IT), but I can talk forever and a day about brows.
Because there’s just so much to say about brows! — and not just about brows, but don’t you think that brows also say a lot about us?
They’re very expressive and revealing, like, you can tell when someone is mad, glad, surprised or sad by the angle of their brows.
Aaand they can also tell you if someone follows Instagram.
You know what I’m talking about. The famous “Instagram Brow”? Sculpted arches with a razor sharp tail and a subtle ombre effect that transitions from lighter on the side closer to the nose to darker as it goes out?
I see so many gals who can rock that look, but man, oh, man! — I’m not one of ’em. On me, they’re a no-go. I tried them once, and I looked like an evil villain plotting to blackmail someone for a billion dollars…
It’s just not the look for me, but that’s perfectly OK because brows are so individual. They’re like fingerprints.
And just like there are dozens of different brow shapes and styles, there are also many ways to maintain them. You can get them waxed or threaded or shaped by a brow specialist. Or, you can do what I’ve always done, and take care of them at home.
Yup, I pluck (and I’ve always plucked) my own brows.
I’m kind of a weirdo control freak, and the thought of putting my brows in someone else’s hands kinda terrifies me. Plus, I saw a woman walk up to a makeup counter looking for help in tears once because she said that she went to a brow specialist, and they removed half of her brows!
The incident traumatized us both.
