Eyebrows are what some call thee most important facial feature. Well-arched brows are imperative in defining a clean and  finished made-up face. Let’s be real, eyebrows can make or break your entire look.

The first obvious remedy to dressing your brows, for most, involve wax, tweezers or razors. For others like myself whose brows generally grow clean, there is still much to be desired. I opt for the use of concealer to fake the arch and define my brows.

I recommend being very careful and blending well. Failure to do so can lead to being a victim of a captioned Instagram photo lol. I am guilty of that crime. See  photo below.

Are you a plucker or waxer of brows?

I use wax and the razor. I have been using razor because eyebrows are getting sparse. Latisse is now my new friend.

I get threading and although it’s not the best feeling in the world, it leaves my brows *in my Martin voice* looking like the bomb LOL

s/n I personally thought your brows looked cute in that second pic but I don’t wear make up or know anything about it so…..

YES!!! A fresh pair of brows gives you a totally different look. I get mine done every 2 weeks faithfully. It’s a must

Mainly, I’m a threadder. I feel like it gives better definition and the thought of hot wax on my face does nothing for me -_-

On the in between days, I rather a tweezer.

What is better threading or make -up in your opinion and why?

Also can u have threading and make up at the same time?

Hi Shennell, Whether someone decides to thread, pluck, wax or conceal with makeup has most to do with the natural shape of their brows. I choose to conceal only because my brows are naturally arched and I don’t think the headache of grooming them is necessary in my case. I simply use the concealer to define them a bit more.

If my brows were not naturally shaped like this, grooming, concealing and filling in would probably be necessary.
