Keep Them Thick
You’ve probably seen women with brows so narrow and perfectly arched it looks like someone painted them on. Women can get away with that look. You, on the other hand, would just look foolish. You want controlled chaos; brows with a natural shape that have been helped along with some judicious plucking. To go from one brow to two, it’s pretty simple: Start above your nose at the center of your face between your eyes, where a bunch of peach fuzz and hairy stragglers have formed a bridge. Using the flat edge of your tweezers, grasp hair as close to the skin as possible, and pull. “Always pull hairs in the direction of hair growth to avoid breakage,” says Duran. Remove hair until a space about the width of your thumb has been cleared. “Then apply a cold washcloth to close the pores.” If your skin feels itchy or looks a little red, apply a soothing lotion.
What You Need: Hydrocortizone cream calms swelling and reduces skin irritation after tweezing. Apply a dot between your brows and massage into your skin in a circular motion. One to try: Cortizone-10 Hydratensive Healing Lotion [$10; Walmart.com]
