Imagine this; you wake up, late for a tut only to find that one eyebrow has been shaved off!
What would your first reaction be?
Too confusing to answer?
The answer is simple; just shave the remaining one off, replace both with eye pencil, and bounce to your tut. Never mind if anyone on campus is giving you the “WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST SEE” look. Eyebrows are important, they frame one’s face but ultimately they’re yours to do with as you please! There are thousands of eyebrow tutorials out there that show one exactly how to get the “perfect brow”, however, the perfect brow remains subjective!
It is quite common for some womxn to shave off their eyebrows if they are dissatisfied with them, they then have their desired eyebrows drawn or tattooed onto their faces. However, they draw what is trending or what suits their face shape. Then there is shading, brushing, plucking, tweezing, and threading, all more painful than the next! But, if you want your “eyebrows on fleek” then you have to deal. Just remember that we are all different and it is okay to not be the same as everyone else!
