Eyebrows - Frame Your Eyes

Eyebrows frame our face and give expression to our eyes.  Finding the right arch for your eyes is essential, and mistakes can lead to irregularities, patchiness, or worse, like having a clown-like surprised look on you face all day, a disaster that happened to my mother once.

If you don't feel up to shaping your own, "brow bars" are popping up all over the place, inside of Sephora, at some specialized make up counters, or at your trusted esthetician's.  It is now easy to find someone to help you define the initial shape.  At that point, maintenance becomes key, and no great brow can keep its form without a little help.
In my experience, Tweezerman makes the best tweezers on the market.  They are super fine and accurate, making it easy to pluck even the finest, tiniest and most stubborn of hairs.  Great for shaping and maintenance, they stay sharp for ages and can be sent to the manufacturer for free sharpening.

To minimize irregularities or fill in areas with less hair growth, a good natural-colored eyebrow pencil is key.  I love Shiseido's light brown eyebrow pencil, because it is a very neutral, cool brown that doesn't draw attention to itself, but really gives my brows more definition.  If you really want to perfect your look, I suggest an eyebrow gel such as MAC's Brow Set.  Although they make it in several tones, the clear gel is the easiest to use and most versatile.
