Man and the Mascara: Brows, brows, brows

browsLast weekend I had a friend ask me to do her makeup for Halloween, she was being Harley Quinn from the Batman series. Toward the end of doing her makeup I had asked her if she wanted me to fill in her eyebrows.

She was very surprised when I asked her and thought I was referring to her eyelashes. She had never had her eyebrows done before. This was a weird concept to me. How in 2015, could a girl have gone without getting her brows done?

I filled them and immediately she was blown away by the results, she loved it. So that sparked my interest for my topic this week, the importance of filling in your eyebrows.

I personally fill in my eyebrows every single day before I go anywhere. It’s just become a part of my daily routine, I brush my teeth, wash my face and fill in my eyebrows. My grandmother cursed me with poor eyebrow genes and (especially when I’m tan) it looks like I don’t have anything there. Filling them in just gives me that natural bushy look, keeping my eyebrows full and my confidence high.

Being a man, I want my brows to look a little bushier, since that is considered “manly.” If you are a woman, you probably don’t want your brows to look bushy, unless you are dressing up as Frida Kahlo. Girls, you want to keep them crisp and keep them clean.

Eyebrows frame the face and can even change the way face shape looks in some cases. Eyebrows that are too short can make your face look fuller, and eyebrows that are too intense or arched will make your face look angry.

The key when filling in and shaping your brows is to not to go crazy. I’ve seen too many people plastering on the dark pencil to create a full brow look, but it just looks fake, and not as cute as they were hoping for.

If your brows are lighter than your hair color, go ahead and add some depth to your brows to harmonize with your hair color.

Overall, brows are perhaps the most important part of doing your makeup every day. Even on days when you don’t do your makeup, you should fill in your brows.
