Tuesday QuickTip #30 - June 23, 2009

Calling all Boy Meets World fans!  Topanga, aka Danielle Fishel (now hosting The Dish on The Style Network) meets with Brett to get the real dish on brow grooming.

Danielle has big, thick eyebrows that she loves, but she occasionally has the habit of overplucking.  Brett gives her some expert tips to create the perfect shape that looks natural and is easy to maintain.

Click below for the inside scoop!

Q – What brow shape should you aim for when tweezing?

A - Eyebrows should have a nice swoop that gradually gets thinner towards the tail… don’t tweeze brows into a “sperm” shape!

- If you've overplucked, lightly fill in with a brow pencil to get the proper swoop shape until brows grow in. Use a brow pencil in a lighter shade than your natural brow so the pencil color doesn't compete with your real brows. Brett used Vanitymark's Ultra-Brow Pencil in Blondie on Danielle.

Q - Should you tweeze above the brow? 

A - Brett says yes!  If you have “cobwebbing” above your brows, tweeze those strays for a cleaner, tidier look.

Q – How bold should eyebrows be?

A – You want your arches to make an impact, but if the brow dips too low into the corner of the eye/top of the nose area, you can look stern.  Simply take off the bottom 1-2 rows of hair in that corner to lift the brow…instant brow Botox!

Q- Where’s the best place to tweeze?

A – Believe it or not, airplane bathrooms!  Quarters are tight in these bathrooms, which means your proximity to the mirror is perfect for up-close tweezing.  Plus, the bad lighting shows every detail.  Just don’t tweeze during turbulence!
