On Brows

I can't go a single day without seeing something about eyebrows. It's not something I hate, but it's something that makes me think. Personally, I had a run in with tweezers when I was fourteen, and I feel like it took years to grow them back. Now that I have them, I try not to do much to them. This is one thing that makes me feel a bit off, because it seems like everyone is off to get their brows done, and I heavily guard mine. They're still small anyway, and they do grow out to a length that needs to be trimmed, but even then I don't feel like myself anymore. 

I suppose I fully embrace the "boy" brow. I say boy brow because I can't think of another phrase, and this is the one I read about the most. I fill them in a bit with a pencil, and brush over them with clear mascara (it's cheaper and lasts longer than eyebrow gel)*, and that's it. I'm even wary of rubbing them at the end of the day when I take my makeup off, so I usually just leave the makeup in, which I know is probably bad. I don't want to lose any hairs if I can help it.

I want to know what you do with your eyebrows. Do you fill them in religiously, or do you opt to keep them clean? Tweezing, threading, anything else? Am I the only person in the world without a strict eyebrow care routine? I think I have a bit of brow FOMO.

*I would like to try the toothbrush-as-an-eyebrow brush thing...

I've been styling sets with Yoins on Polyvore. You can check that out here.


  1. Ah, you're not alone Amber! I've never once touched my eyebrows; they're not perfect, but it's far less hassle that way. My mum plucked her eyebrows as a teenager and they never grew back... no way am I taking that chance haha!

    1. Thanks Gabrielle, so glad I'm not alone! Plucking is risky business!

  2. I leave mine be as much as possible! I do not pluck them often and will occasionally trim them if needed, but I've definitely embraced the bushy caterpillar brows I was given. Don't mess with a good thing is my motto.


    1. Oh, I like that motto! Thanks for the comment Elizabeth!
