Problem: Your Brows Are Bushy
Solution: First of all, congrats. Most women over 35 suffer from increasing sparseness, so consider yourself lucky, says Eliza Petrescu, an expert brow shaper whose clients include Jennifer Lopez. To prune overgrown arches, Petrescu recommends small, curved brow scissors, not tweezers. "In many cases, a good haircut is all your brows need," she says. Brush your brows up using a spoolie brush (a small, coarse brush similar to a mascara wand). Then take your shears and carefully trim the longest hairs across the top edge of your brows, effectively giving yourself a blunt cut. Next, tweeze any strays that fall above or below the brow line, or have a pro wax the area around your brow. "Wax cleans up peach fuzz, which, when allowed to run amok, can make even a neatly trimmed brow look unkempt. Waxing is like dusting off yourface," Petrescu says.
