Re: Benebaby's "Brows Across the Universe" Campaign

My brows are so much better thanks to Amanda. She introduced me to Brow Zings and the Benefit Beauty Bar. Whoo hoo!

I wanted to share how thin they were last year, I like how they look now. They look drawn in, but they were just shaded.

Re: Benebaby's "Brows Across the Universe" Campaign

I stay away from getting mine waxed because they always leave me with thin little brows. I havent had many good experiences getting my brows waxed, one time i had nearly half my brow taken off.

I think I'd like to find someone who was really good and get them to do it though. That would be awesome!

Love the new brows Aquilah!!

Re: Benebaby's "Brows Across the Universe" Campaign

I have huge thick werewolf brows. I've been too lazy too pluck at all recently because I've been wearing glasses. I figure that my glasses are so huge that nobody will notice my brows. I get them waxed every few months and theoretically pluck to keep them in shape. I did pluck this morning because I'm wearing contacts tonight! I'd really like a more dramatic arch, but I don't think I can change the shape that dramatically.

Re: Benebaby's "Brows Across the Universe" Campaign

I'm completely obsessed with eyebrows and have always been. I've been growing them out for 2 months and tomorrow I'm going to get them threaded! I'm so excited, as the growth makes them look such a mess. I've been complimented on my eyebrows, many times in the past, however I am never pleased with them myself (too much of a perfectionist!)

Re: Benebaby's "Brows Across the Universe" Campaign

Get them threaded and talk to the person, who will advise you the best shape to suit your facial features. From what I've heard, waxinf can cause the skin to sag.

Re: Benebaby's "Brows Across the Universe" Campaign

Thanks benebaby for the suggestions =]. I got them done about a week ago and they messed them up soo much (that's why they are so far away from my nose). Right now I'm working on growing them in so I will try to follow that!
Another question....I was born with dark brown eyebrows and light brown/dark blonde hair. Now that I have gotten my hair lightened even more, should I have my eyebrows lightened? Any suggestions?

Apparently, blondes should be 2 shades darker than their hair colour and others should ensure their eyebrows are lighter than their hair. I would say, it really depends on how they actually look; lightening eyebrows can make the face appear softer, although they may appear two toned, when growing in.

I like a guys brows to look clean, but not "metro". A guy should never get his brows arched!! If anything have a pro cleean-up the middle and TWEEZE any stray hairs. Waxing looks to obvious on Men.

You could use a cream bleach like Jolen to lighten your brows. You just paint it on and leave it for a few seconds to lighten them to the desired shade. Be careful though because you could end up with orangey brows. Also be advised that you will have to continue to do it because they will grow back in and look "highlighted"...LOL

Do you have a picture showing the front of your face, hair and eyebrows? I have blonde hair and darker eyebrows as well. I imagined myself that it looked really silly and let them lighten professional once. I regretted it afterwards. It like all the attention was drawn away from my eyes. Darker brows frame your eyes and make your eyes pop out. My eyebrows are my natural colour again and I appreciate the colour now.

I had a point in this story.... Oh yeah, I'm pretty sure your eyebrow colour looks just fine. Fact is, most natural blondes have darker brows. It are usually the fake blondes who have matching blonde eyebrows.

I really like the NYX brow kit. It comes with a wax and a powder and retails a few dollars. The brush it comes with is crap but the product is good. I prefer Benefit Browzings but the NYX is a pretty good alternative.

This may seem rant-like but I am TIRED of seeing the World filled with bad brows. We're talkin tweezed until one inch of life brows, overly arched brows, comma brows, no brows...it's a Universal Epidemic. Being a self-proclaimed Brow Expert I have decided to take matters into my own hands. Here are some of my tips....

-I know mistakes are made, shoot I've been overtweezed before! But grow those bad boys out for at least 3 weeks...don't touch, and have them shaped professionally. I know the pros aren't always right so communicate your wants and needs to your waxer.

-When it comes to brows More is better than less. I'd rather see a unibrow than 3 hairs floating above your eyes. When in doubt about a hair..don't tweeze it.

-If you have sparse brows or brows significantly lighter than your hair, look into tinting or a brow product like Benefit Browzing...it makes an amazing difference. When your brows are in check you look more polished and your eye makeup looks sooo much better.

-Never try to change the shape of your arch/brows you were born with. It will always look artifical and not quite right.

Questions??? Concerns??? Wanna be part of my campaign???
OK what about me. When I was 15, everybody plucked half of the brow to form what they called an "angel wing."
Mine never grew back. That was 30 years ago. I would love to have eyebrows. Everyday I have to "put on" my brows. I was going to have them tatooed at one time, but needed the money for something else.
Any advice.

Well....I have seen some great tattooed brows and I have seen some horrible ones. What ever you decide, do a lot of research!! The ones that look great are done to look like actual hairs, not blocks of color. Also go a little lighter, tattoos change color over time and I have seen green and blue brows!!!

Re: Benebaby's "Brows Across the Universe" Campaign

Okay, these are my brows. What do you think? I really do need help!
The way the one in the last picture looks is how I want them both to look close up, too, but I don't know if that looks good on me or how to achieve it.

Well...your brows are not bad at all. You have a good amount to work with. They just need to be cleaned up a bit, and you have the potential for a great arch. You could fill in some of the sparse areas with a brow kit and then they'd be perfect!

Re: Benebaby's "Brows Across the Universe" Campaign

My eyebrows were threaded today after 2+ months, so there was quite a lot of growth. Although painful, it was worth it as it is so smooth and clean.

I used to get threaded...she totally ruined the end of my brows. Now I just tweeze myself and once in awhile have them done by my fave Brow Lady.

I grew my ends back in during those two months, as they were thin before. I'm sorry to hear about that- although these people are meant to be professionals, it's really hard to trust them.

Re: Benebaby's "Brows Across the Universe" Campaign

Well....your brows would look amazing if you filled them in a bit. I would recommend a brow kit like Benefit Browzing in Dark. Just m\mix a bit of wax and powder and lightly apply where needed...for you the end and a bit in the front.

Wish I had your brows. I am missing half a brow from plucking years ago and they never grew back.
Yours need just a little fill in the front and fill in the ends I little bit. You are a beautiful girl. Your smile says it all.
