It’s been said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder… I don’t really believe in this idiom because when you know you look stunning, you don’t need the world to affirm you, if you believe in yourself, that is. Though sometimes we tend to go the extra mile to look beautiful, the ‘beholder’ is within!
“The eyebrow is an area of thick, delicate hairs above the eye that follows the shape of the lower margin of the brow ridges of some mammals. Their main function is to prevent sweat, water, and other debris from falling down into the eye socket, but they are also important to human communication and facial expression.” – (Wikipedia)
For as long as I have noticed, there’s been one thing that traumatizes my already unhealthy eyes and I find it very cringe worthy! DRAWN EYEBROWS! Oh wow, I’m sure every lady has a story to tell about this controversial subject. Eyebrows come in different shapes and sizes, some are as thick as of my Israeli friends, some naturally thin and a few people have almost no eyebrows to speak of.
There is this tendency to shave off eyebrows, then draw them with a pencil ((not HB)). It’s a technique so popular yet so appalling when done badly. Some have mastered this art and you can rarely tell if its
pencil over brows. I suppose it would be better if these ladies kept their God given hairs and shape them nicely! Its a little disturbing to be served food by someone in a restaurant with a drawn brow up to the ear. With their original ‘hair’ out of sight, all you can see is the pencil which I think keeps fading with the summer heat!
I’m a firm believer in comfort but I vehemently condemn drawn eyebrows, no matter how comfortable you are in them, they are the worst thing to ever happen to ‘beauty’. Jozichicks, we love you too much to allow you to fall into that trap. Shape them nicely, darken them if you must but be warned that shaving them all off is not a wise move. When you decide to draw them try to be more convincing even if its to the hobo on the roadside, brush them nicely. An old toothbrush can be used and it works well on attaining beautiful eyebrows. Even when waxing or shaving them, leave a little…after all there is a reason you have them.
Happy New year dear Jozichics, its been epic, but I’m convinced it will be even better with you not looking hideous in crooked drawn eyebrows as thin as a thread in a needle! Mega love to all of you!
