Beauty on a Budget: Better Brows from Target
More beauty tips from the Detroit Free Press - this time on eyebrow shaping on a budget – from celebrity makeup artist Robert Jones (who has worked with Sheryl Crow, pictured, as well as the Dixie Chicks). First you'll need a good pair of tweezers; Target has many options, including the classic Tweezerman brand.
• Tweeze your brows after a hot shower; it'll be less painful because the steam will have opened your pores.
• Always tweeze in the direction that your hair grows. If you don't, the hair might grow back sticking straight out rather than lying down!
• Very few women have identical eyebrows. Start by tweezing a couple of hairs out of one brow, then switch to the other, tweeze a couple out of it, then switch back to the other. By doing this, you'll be able to constantly reevaluate what needs to be tweezed.
• To make a perfect arch: Hold a pencil or the handle of a brush vertically against the side of your nose, noting where it meets the brow; this point is where your brow should begin.
