eyebrows :/

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell my how to shape my eyebrows (without shaving, they just take over more face that way, on me at least, i've had them shaved off at so many parties they almost touch my hairline O.O)

plucking or *gulp* waxing them?

i dunno what to do other than start from the bottom :)

i did bleach and dye and one eyebrow blue once, it didn't last long :?

any advice would be a godsend!

thank you :)

I've never had a problem with my brows being waxed. It's the tweezing that's painful if it isn't done right. Still it takes less than 15 minutes to complete.

start by waxing and maintain by plucking with some really good tweezers.

haha i intend on keeping them Dee Jay, there is jus too much i can do with eyebrows this long (from middle outwards... very outwards lol. not bushy lol)

the reason i suppose i used to get rid of them at any given chance (for instance the party where people are like "woo gonna shave off some eyebrows!!" and when they didn't i'd be like "i wanted to see some eyesbrow loss!!" and shave mine off lol) was so i could get people (usually female cos they had eyeliner) to draw them on hehe. not to mention they were more skilled and usually drew more feminine eyebrows.

i see now about waxing first, that makes sense :) but what to do on shape? i'm intriqued :) lol any thoughts?

and has the word "eyebrows" lost its meaning to anyone else? *dizzy face* O.o

Greetings,

Waxing it the quickest and easiest way to get your brows down and then us tweezers to maintain them. It you're having problems with the shaping of your brows there are numerous websites that have excellent articles on how to shape your brows.

As for tweezing the hair on your leg, use an epilator which basically rips the hair out from the roots like tweezing but is much faster. Now, some people find them painful to use but I happen to be a masochist, so what's a little pain???

Peace, love, and contentment,

Isabelle

I got mine done professionally, only cost me £7 which isn't much and it meant I didn't make any mistakes. After that it was just a case of maintaining them myself with tweezers. After about 6 months they need touching up by a pro again (I'm getting them redone on sunday :P) but it's just so much easier and so worth the cost of getting them done properly. Plus they'll look way better :)

I tend to shave the top part above the eyebrow and then to pluck the bottom hairs to thin out the whole eyebrow.

I don't mind pucking and once pulled out every hair from the back of both hands up to the wrist. Unfortunately this is not permanent and I now shave them every 2 or 3 days as I do my legs.

How many times would I have to pluck a hair before it decided not to bother to grow again?

What about nasal hair? I have always plucked these. What do other do please?

Thanks and best wishes,

Sarahw

I dunno. I just go and see this sweet little oriental lady for my eyebrows. I can't understand a word she says. She spends about a half hour waxing, plucking and fussing. And then charges me $10. I always tip her real good...

      There once was a deputy named Fife. He carried a gun and a knife. The gun was all dusty. And the knife was all rusty. Cause he never caught a crook in his life   That's for you fans of Andy!   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      I am less than keen of the idea of posting personal information on Discord, which makes money by selling data. Mattermost would be a better option.

      In my opinion you have not really separated your finances at all. It's just bits and pieces that have been hived off. It sounds like it's time to take her decision to seperate finances and form a plan between yourselves to do it. I am not familiar with your type of lifestyle. My partner and I have always had seperate finances except for the mortgage account , which was used just for buying the house, which I always handled, so I am not in the ideal position to advise you how to do things. Perhaps pay off the credit card with a fresh one opened by yourself then close the original one, saying you got a good deal to work it out.   There again, it seems like symptoms of deeper issues. Your wife may well not see things the way you do. I can only say that the way I did things in the end was to move ahead and trust that things would workout. That is not to say I was inconsiderate, but being confident in myself, rather than uncertain, trying placate someone who was probably very unsure herself too, has seemed to make all the difference.   Hope it helps!   Tracy

      Okay.   Background and context first.   My wife of 13 years has been working on becoming my best friend and roommate. (Hella long story there, let's just move on.) So after she found out that she was going to get some money from an insurance policy (something like $10k), she suddenly decided that she wanted to separate our finances. At first, this crushed me because it meant that she felt she couldn't trust me. It hurt me on another level because despite my making more money than her the entire time we've been together and the 2 years of her not working and me paying the bills, she didn't want to put any of it toward my surgery. Then, I saw the advantages because rather than constantly having to try and get her to agree to a budget that put money in the bank for my surgery, I would be free to save as much as I wanted!   But the separating of the finances isn't going so well. I pay off a credit card, tell her it's paid and that we shouldn't use it. Then discover two months later that she's used it and that no payments have been made. Late fees abound, joy. The Amazon account that we shared was in my name, so of course we just left it alone, she pays me for anything she orders. But every time she orders something, she uses the points on the card to reduce her bill. I finally said something about it and she acted like I was being a penny pinching jerk, when I'm the one building up the points. We'll be out doing something and she'll offer to pay for whatever (dinner, coffee, drinks, etc), but she puts it on the joint account and when it comes time to settle up she's suddenly "forgotten" she offered to pay! And to top it all off, because she works for the leasing company that runs our apartment complex, she gets a discount for the rent. SHE gets a discount on the rent... $268 a month for an approximate bill of $1400. Oh, and she makes as much as I do now....   I'll be honest, I don't think she's being malicious, but I'm kinda getting $(*%&. I'm thinking about removing myself from the joint credit card and the joint account. I already have my direct deposits going into a new bank with my new checking account. I don't know whats going on with her, but I feel like I need to protect myself, my credit. I had thought she didn't trust me and it hurt. But her actions seem to be telling me to stop trusting her.   There are many other factors here, many other emotions and things going on. I don't want to make a wrong step and ruin what we have left. But lately I'm wondering, what the hell DO we have left? It's been very important to me to keep her in my life in whatever way possible. Unfortunately I've learned she doesn't see things the same way that I do and that love isn't always enough in this world....   So I'm wondering, is it time to finally make a hard break? This halfway, quasi-break up is beginning to get under my skin. I'm finally starting to understand myself and how to navigate this world as me (STARTING!) And between her depression and this passive-aggressive behavior, I'm kinda done with it all. I'm beginning to pull myself out of a pit of depression that I've lived in for my entire life. And it seems to me that every time I've managed to pull myself out of that swirling maelstrom of black madness, I'm getting pulled back in. If it isn't one thing, it's another. Frankly, I'm sick of it. I can't get a man and I can't have my best friend. I'm feeling like it's time to go solo again.... But I hate that lonely road too.... Advice is REALLY welcome here, and thank you.

      Hey Jae Bear, Yeah, I can understand your poetry problems. I have the same issue a large majority of the time. I use both writing and drawing as an outlet, so a lot of my feeling goes into them. This can be both good and bad, but it can definitely help sometimes. As for my drawing, I do not plan on stopping anytime soon. I also doubt you're as bad as you're making yourself out to be. If you want to do a comic style, go for it! ~Alex

      What do you call the new Disneyland ‘Alice in wonderland’ ride where they pass out estradot patches?     It’s an E ticket ride

      Hi Bobbi Sue, Yes it has been a long time, 27 years goes by so much quicker than you could imagine. And yet I find myself so impatient with my HRT? I’m sorry about the tissue supply but it’s nice to know I’m not just a sentimental fool and cry for any reason, all of these words are very personal parts of myself I am so glad I have someone to share them and people like you to read them. squishy hug, Jae
    • jae bear
      Hi Alex, I love to draw to relax, I honestly wish I was good enough to do a comic style antro set of characters, I would style it after my poems. Those poems are rough, I didn’t think that I’d cry the whole way through or every time I read them, they’re terrible and the form is awful but the content came from a place I keep locked up... I think I want to do a lot more writing, the poems seem to come easily to my head, almost like listening to music but sometimes I can’t shut it off. I hear it when I go to bed and I hear it when I wake up now and it’s really a bit tough as I nearly cry every time and it makes me late for work. But I know that it’s good for me and it opens parts of me that would never be heard if I didn’t allow myself to listen. so I encourage you to do the same, if you’re a writer you should write everything that you can imagine and let others see it so we can all benefit from your gift. If you love to draw you should draw as often as you can even if you’re terrible like me, the good artists are the ones that never quit. big squishy hug, Jae

      What's most disturbing is that it is espoused by the party that wants smaller government, i.e less intrusion in personal lives.  I guess only when it suits their agendas.    Jani
    • Hey, it's Alex!
      Hey Jae Bear, That's amazing. I'm a big fan of poetry and yeah, it can be pretty intense sometimes. It's pretty cool that you're an artist. Drawing (and writing) is great and you are very correct, they are both very good for you. ~Alex
