(Please note the “after” is immediately after removing the wax, which is why the pencil isn’t blended and the skin is a little red.)
The first time I ever shaped by eyebrows I was in 7th grade. My mom whipped out some eyeliner and traced where my eyebrows should be. She then instructed me to pluck the hairs that fell outside of that shape. The more I plucked, the better I looked (I thought). So I kept going. Ambitiously. Fervently. Until my mom came back in and said, “Oh. You should probably stop now.” But it was too late, and I had to live the next few months with the infamous “tadpole” eyebrows. Luckily, back then thin eyebrows were all the rage, so I didn’t look too out of place. Funny how times change. Nowadays when I do my eyebrows,they usually come out looking thicker than they did when I started (see above).
A few years ago, I got tired of plucking and decided to try out waxing. I got some Surgi-Wax from my local Sally’s and went for it. With some practice, it’s actually quite easy. They have 4 stars out of 5 on Amazon. It’s the best wax I’ve used as it’s great at pulling out the hair without sticking to the skin.
