Ladies, here is how NOT to shape your eyebrows

The eyebrow craze among Kenyan women needs to be addressed! In every group of women, there is always one with an eyebrow disaster on her face.

Eyebrow grooming is virtually a necessity. However, I am perplexed at the great lengths some women go to pluck, tweeze, arch, wax and shave their brows. In an effort to achieve great eyebrows, some girls end up getting the opposite effect. They have taken the eyebrow grooming to a whole new level.

Eyebrows are a very important part of a girl’s face. They shape the face and give it structure. Well-groomed eyebrows can make a girl look well-polished and attractive. Overly sculpted eyebrows, on the other hand, make a girl look superficial. I am not saying that you should walk around with bushy, manly-looking brows. I am all for expressing one’s individuality through the brazenness of your eyebrow, game but some ladies need to turn it down a notch.

A lady must master the art of creating well-groomed eyebrows that look natural. Ridiculously high-arched eyebrows or eyebrows that are plucked so thin they are barely visible, are very unattractive.

I have seen girls strutting around with tragic eyebrows and I felt like weeping for them. Don’t they have mirrors or friends Where do they get the courage to walk around unashamedly with such horrible eyebrows Have you ever looked at a woman and the first thing you notice about her is her hideous eyebrows That should never be the case.

Eyebrows are there to accentuate your other facial features. If you have eyebrows that distract everyone from your other features, you are doing something horribly wrong. Before you grab those tweezers, let me let you in on a little secret. Unnatural looking eyebrows put off men. In actual fact, a man will never notice your eyebrows unless there is something wrong with them.

Even well-groomed eyebrows go unnoticed. You will never hear a man compliment a girl on her eyebrows. Have you ever heard a man say something like ‘damn, those are some fine eyebrows’ Unless he was being sarcastic, probably never.

If you can’t get your eyebrows done by a professional, kindly spare us the horror by sticking to your okay-looking natural eyebrows, lest you end up looking like a cartoon character. Let us not see another woman walking around with ghostly eyebrows.
