Eyes wide open
THIN eyebrows are out, thicker and more natural-looking ones are in on Europe's streets and fashion catwalks. So don't overpluck them!
Excessive attacks with the tweezers in the past may have led to follicle damage, meaning the brow hair might not grow back.
If this has happened, Cornelia Harms from the Hamburg Vocational School recommends permanent makeup, or filling them in with an eyebrow pencil on a daily basis.
That doesn't mean you should stop plucking your brows completely – shaping your eyebrows is still incredibly important. It's best to start with the inner corner of the eye and end above the outer corner.
This is where brows should get narrower, explains Harms. To make the procedure less painful, Harms' advice is to stretch the skin with two or three fingers and then pull out the hairs in the natural direction of their growth. – dpa
Fashionable women's eyebrows are now wide and pronounced, not thin.
