Ask Louise: Eyebrow Etiquette

“Hi! How can I keep my eyebrows in perfect shape all the time? Do you think that I should use all these new products like eyebrow mascara when I want my make up to look flawless? Thanks” – Sammy

 

I’m obsessed with eyebrows, I think they are such an important part of the face, they frame everything and give expression! First, grow your brows out for at least 3 weeks (it’s hard not to pluck or shape them, but this is really crucial). Then, have them professionally threaded (just once is enough, and you can upkeep and maintain them afterwards). I use tiny scissors to keep mine even, and pluck stray hairs away with my tweezers. Pluck slowly and carefully, always taking the time to sit back and look in a regular mirror (not a close up) after every couple of hairs. This is important to make sure both brows stay even.

Pluck from underneath, and aim to have your arch as wide as possible.

Never over pluck, as thin brows are very ageing: I love mine as thick as possible! Once you’ve got a good shape, take the time to match a brow powder (this looks better than pencils) to the hairs. Apply with a very thin brush, to thicken and shape. A finishing brow mascara sets everything into place, I love the one by Benefit. Check out my book, Front Roe, for a detailed step-by-step of how to create the perfect brows!

    Hi Louise!

    I totally agree with you that eyebrows are a very important part of our facial expression, at least my mom use to remind me that all the time. But for me lashes are my weakness, when make up is about of course. Since you are also giving us advice I wanted to recommend you Lancome’s Cils Tint Lash Enhancer. Do not get me wrong, I am not trying to make some publicity here, believe me If I get paid for every time I recommended this product, I would be rich by now. Anyway, this mascara is permanent, and last for 2 days without taking off, and not expensive at all.

    Also I wanted to tell your blog is amazing and that I love your style! Thank you for sharing it with us!

    P.S: Sorry about my english by the way, I’m Spanish and I am still on Sofia Vergara’s accent phase.

    Love,
    Bea

    Dear Louise,

    Firstly, I would like to congratulate for your book. I
    absolutely loved it from the beginning to the end!!! Moreover, it is a fantastic
    tool for women like me that used to think, “ fashion is not for me, it is for
    my sister but not for me”. Your book provided me very useful tips and clear
    understanding about essential concepts. For example, my body shape is an apple so it was very revealing to
    understand why I always felt attractive and sexy with miniskirts and skinny
    pants as well as empire T-shirts and totally the opposite with loose pants.

    I wonder if you are planning to do a workshop in London
    using the format of “Front Roe”. I am sure that it will be a great
    success. Definitely, I would sign up for it.

    I would like also to tell you that you have a lovely energy and that It was touched what you
    wrote to your mum and dad in your book, so truth!!!

    By the way, I am Spanish too as Bea, but living in London, well currently in NYC for several weeks.

    Many thanks for making fashion fun and for being so humble.

    All the best.

    Marta xx

    Hi Louise,

    I wish I could buy your book, but I don’t think my country has it 🙁

    Hi Louise,
    What an amazing topic have you choose, because eyebrows as you have said are something you have to love and take care of it. I used to pluck them every single week, but I stopped when I realised that thick brows gave a a better shape and impression to my face.
    You are an inspiration to me, and my wardrobe tries very hard to have such a beautiful style as yours.
    All the best from Spain,

    Andrea

    share some of the love with them.

  9. I constantly spent my half an hour to read this website’s content everyday along with a mug of coffee.

  10. Hey there! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.

    Does managing a well-established website like yours take a massive amount work?

    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    terrific blog!

  12. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I found this during my search for something relating to this.

    restraint what exactly a lot of folks might have sold for an e book to generate some cash
    for themselves, most notably considering
    that you could have tried it in case you considered necessary.

    way to fully grasp someone else have the same desire really like my own to
    know the truth a whole lot more on the subject of this problem.

Thank you for the whole thing!
