How to get bold eyebrows?8:00 PM
Ever since I started posting head-shots (aka selfies) on Instagram, one question I am frequently asked is how I have such bold eyebrows. And like most other vain things in my life, I hadn't thought about them up until someone mentioned them to me. However, like all girls I went through the phase of over plucked eyebrows. In my defense it was not my choice, but due to lack to resources. Once I moved away from home (for college and then work) there was no one who did 'threading' and I was not willing to give eyebrow waxing a shot! I had to rely on my own skills of plucking, which were needless to say, non-existent. Hence, the too thin brows. This continued for 3-4 years unfortunately and then once I was back to civilization (where there was ample Indian population and therefore easy to find someone who did threading!) I took matters in my own hand.
I patiently (read: restlessly) waited for about 3-4 months (this was 2007!) and let my brows grow out and reach their natural maximum growth (with minimum maintainance by the professionals only!). Few months of frustration has come a long way! I get threading done bi-monthly (and sometimes even once a month), moisturize them with oil several times in the week, and brush them daily with a brow comb. Since I like a natural-looking-brows, I get them trimmed very lightly from the top, maintaining the natural look, without any sharp cuts.
We are in 2013 and I have never ever tried to change my eye brow shape. I don't care whether its in fashion or not, I am sticking with my full brows.
P.S. Everyone who requested this post: I hope it helps!
