What do I do about my eye­brows?

Sharp - - STYLE -

You might be ig­nor­ing them, but un­less you’re Peter Gal­lagher, you’re def­i­nitely not pulling off the bushy look. But han­dle with ex­treme care when it comes to hack­ing away at two of your face’s most prom­i­nent fea­tures. You don’t want to overdo it and be left with barely-there wisps that pre­vent you from look­ing sur­prised by the next crazy thing Trump does.

If your brows are too bushy:

1. Brush them up with a comb. 2. Run scis­sors or a trim­mer along your brow line, re­mov­ing the top mil­lime­tre of hair. Brush your brows back down to as­sess, and re­peat if they still look overly bushy. 3. Tweeze any strays that sur­face be­yond

your nat­u­ral brow line.

If your brows are in­dis­tin­guish­able from one an­other:

Use the rule of thumb: place your thumb at the cen­tre­point be­tween your brows, a bit above your actual brow line, then re­move all of the stray hairs di­rectly be­low it. We rec­om­mend plucking so the patch doesn’t grow back prickly within a few days.

If you just don’t know where to be­gin:

En­list the ser­vices of a pro. Com­mu­ni­cate that you want a nat­u­ral but still de­fined shape. This will make at-home main­te­nance a lot eas­ier go­ing for­ward — just trim back any­thing that pops up be­yond the de­fined brow line.
