Eyes wide open

The Sun (Malaysia) - - STYLE -

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.
