The wonderful world of Eyebrows!

Hi Ladies and Gents!
So I thought this was an important post for my readers because I get a lot of compliments about my eyebrows and questions about how I get that perfect arch, so here is how I do it. Before i get to the how to, let me give you the history of my eyebrows.So as a teenager I use to go get my eyebrows waxed at the local nail salon and looking back at pictures I cringe at how horrific my eyebrows use to look. My eyebrows looked like a rainbow painted on my face, they were uneven and didn't do anything for my features. Not a lot of people realize how eyebrows can change your appearance drastically. As I got older I grew out my eyebrows and just started tweezing myself because I didn't trust anyone to ever do them again, that is till my girlfriend introduced me to Azmeena. This woman is amazing with eyebrows and she really made a difference in the way my eyebrows look. When I first met Azmeena she said to me "Sweetie if you listen to me you will have your dream eyebrows," and boy was she right. The hardest part about achieving that perfect eyebrow is the regrowing process. I had to grow my eyebrows for a month. The first two weeks were fine but the last two weeks I avoided going out because I looked like chumbaca,lol. Ladies this is the most important part, do not touch your eyebrows at all, it's hard but worth it. After a month I went back and she gave me a great arch. It took four months for the perfect look because one eyebrow was shorter than the other. Azmeena told me as long as I didn't touch my eyebrows, they will grow and they did. I drive 45mins once a month for to get my eyebrows threaded, but for me it's  well worth it. Here are some pictures of me and my eyebrows through the years, can you see the difference and how it helps accentuate my features ? Also a link to Azmeena's website and tips to achieve the perfect eyebrows. Feel free to leave a comment or questions.

Me at 15! Eyebrows waxed at nail salon.
Over plucking, too thin!
Not bad but still thin.
I just started going to Azmeena at this point.
about 4 months ago and just right

Well-groomed eyebrows are a part of a complete and effective makeup application.  Begin by slightly trimming overgrown eyebrow hair.  This step must be followed by threading of the eyebrows.

What is “threading”?  Threading is an ancient and unique technique for all ages, both male and female.  This method is used in many countries in the Middle East as well as countries in Asia and Eastern Africa.  Threading is suitable for the removal of unwanted vellus facial hair.

This method is gaining world wide popularity.  Using special eyebrow threading, the technician twists and rolls the thread along the surface of the skin entwining the hair which is then pulled out from the follicle.
·        It takes approximately 2 to 4 weeks for hair to grow back.
·        Threading is less painful in comparison to other methods of hair removal such as tweezing and waxing.
·        Unlike the use of depilatories, threading has minimal side effects of irritation and puffiness.
·        Threading is highly recommended by dermatologists for those who use Retin-A, Accutone, and other similar products.
·        Over sensitive skin may experience some discomfort but far less than waxing.
·        Optional:  Apply emollient cream or antiseptic lotion and massage for a few minutes.  Gently remove excess cream/lotion with a cotton pad.
Well shaped eyebrows will also give you an instant face-lift, enhance your appearance and make you look a few years younger than your age.  It also takes away a few pounds from your face.


Enhance your eyebrow by applying brow shadow to fill in the brow.  Begin the application from the tail of the eyebrow to the peak of the arch, and from the arch to the thickness and inner corner.  Next, apply the shadow on the inner side of the eyebrow by blending toward the arch.
Use eyebrow pencil for sparsed or brow area with no hair before applying brow shadow.

Hope this tip helps! I would love to see before and afters if you guys change to threading.
