5 Easy Eyebrow Hacks That Actually Work

Eyebrows are something most women spent ten minutes a day "doing." Especially on days that they wear makeup. Think about it. ten minutes a day goes to "doing" your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil or whatever it may be that you use. Fifteen minutes every other week getting them waxed/plucked/trimmed. That's 4,080 minutes a year.

So, here are some eyebrow hacks that will save you time and make your eyebrows look perfect.

1. Stop going to your hair dresser to get your eyebrows "done"

Hairdressers are head hair dressers... most of them don't have the proper training to wax your eyebrows. I learned this after going to my hair dresser for years and then going into an Ulta Beauty store to get my eyebrows done. The experience was totally different and the woman that did my eyebrows at Ulta mapped them out and took her time. My hair dresser usually just took a look at my brows, threw some wax on them, ripped it off, and called it a day. Find an Ulta or another eyebrow particular business to go to rather than your hair dresser! It makes a huge difference.

2. As bad as it sucks, let those suckers grow out 

When I was in seventh grade, I started plucking my eyebrows and I plucked them down to almost nothing. I still regret it and if I could go back and change five things about my early teenage years, that would be one of them (and there were many mistakes made that should be far more important than eyebrows...)

3. Stop buying products online to make your eyebrows grow 

Although the products you see advertised on Facebook by your friends and family seem like they would work, in my experience, they don't. I spent a couple hundred dollars altogether on eyebrow/eyelash growth serum and all it did was irritate my eye area and make my lash line and eyebrows extremely red. Try using castor oil instead. I used this for a while and it helped my eyebrows even out!

4. Using a skinny eyebrow pencil showed me a new world 

I use something called "Precisely, My Brow Pencil." This particular eyebrow pencil looks more natural than not and it's quick and easy to use.

5. "Eyebrows are sisters, not twins" 

When my brows are uneven it drives me crazy. After spending 30 minutes of your day to apply your makeup, having uneven brows makes you feel "unfinished." Buuut the sooner you can accept the fact that eyebrows are sisters and not twins, the happier you'll be with your finished look.

Even though this is a short list, it's a useful one. Eyebrows are one of the first things people see when they look at you aside from your eyes and your smile, so it's easy to feel insecure about them. The last thing you want it for your eyebrows to look almost non-existent or like they're drawn on with a sharpie. Follow this list for a few months and watch your eyebrows change into the brows you've always wanted!
