Windows of the Style

If the eyes are the windows of the soul…then surely the eyebrows have to be the windows of the style.

This favorite was sparked by a conversation at work.  My teacher pal, B,  asked my about my eyebrows, how do the look like that, and what do I use?  As we began we began to converse, we both realized that I am OBSESSED with a perfectly coiffed brow.  So obsessed… that in the middle of our talk…I literally ran out of her classroom and went to the store to get her started on the path of brow lavishness .  When I returned I immediately began with my version of a tutorial.  We even joked that this could put on my blog (well one of us was joking… the other was thinking).  Care to guess which one was which?

I remember when one of my nieces was born and grew into a young girl she acquired  the most unruly and disrespectful eyebrows EVER.  A constant family statement was “Sweetheart, fix your brows.” She would promptly smooth them with her tiny finger and continue with whatever she was destroying previously.  I must admit eyebrows were not top of beauty list UNTIL I looked at old photos and those brows looked very sad to be on attached to my face.  Sorry brows for how I neglected you…please forgive me.

Once I realized the error of my ways, I went on an eyebrow beautification mission.  Getting to tools was easy…the difficult part was the application.  Oh Boy! Sometimes those babies looked angry, melancholy, surprised or in a constant state of confusion. Not to mention it took forever  to make them absolutely perfect.  Then many years later, that same niece made a statement that changed the relationship between me and my eyebrows.  She professed “Auntie, eyebrows are meant to be SISTERS not TWINS.” That girl saved my live and a 20 hour morning routine with that one declaration. Who knew the eyebrow Gods would speak through my brother’s daughter?!

You know by now that my “favorites” are really my “obsessions” and of course I have MANY tools for two things that make up a small portion of our beautiful faces. However, I have narrowed these tools down to a few tried and true favs that eagerly wait every morning to be used. By no means, am I the “eyebrow whisperer” but I have come a LONG way baby!  By the way B., thank you for sparking this favorite and I can’t way to see your perfectly coiffed brows very soon!
