One of our faithful clients Facebooked a suggestion to discuss on our blog: how in the world to wade through the waters of the big, bold eyebrow trend. We took her suggestion seriously and did some research!
Everyone knows the full brow trend is in high demand these days. Even Cosmo has reported that big, bold brows are a Beauty “Do” instead of a “Don’t.” All you have to do is scroll through the “Famous Over Plucked Eyebrows” celebrity list and realize what a mistake we were making all those years ago. One celebrity was even quoted to say that her skinny brows made her look “permanently surprised from 1997 to 1999.”
But what if you’re super settled in your pencil-skinny brows from the 90s? How do you change? How do you make the switch?
1. Get comfortable with it feeling uncomfortable for a little bit.
As you learn how to plump up those brows, your face is going to look different to you in the mirror. It just is. You won’t be used to it. You’ll have doubts. Those are the moments when you need to scroll back through your Throwback Thursday posts and see how out of proportion your 90s eyebrows actually looked back in the day. Trust us, one glance at that old-school eyebrow photo will do the trick and keep you firmly planted in 2014 instead of 1994.
2. Don’t go overboard.
Sometimes when we feel like we’ve made a major faux pas in life, we course-correct a little too aggressively. Our advice? Dont’ let the pendulum swing too far in the other direction, or people will scroll through 2014 pictures of you and mistake you for Bert from Sesame Street. Make sure you get educated on how to properly fill those brows in, just to save yourself some time and trouble. Which leads me to my next point!
3. Come into Posh and let us give you a makeup instruction.
We love teaching people about makeup! And remember a “makeup instruction” appointment is different than a “makeup application” appointment. The applications are for days or events when you don’t feel like doing the dirty work yourself and you just want to have some makeup magic done to your face. However, the instruction appointment is all about you learning how to do it yourself! We will teach you all the up-to-date makeup application techniques so that you’ll have street-ready skin, eyes, and lips all on your own!
4. Use one of these tutorials, depending on your brow situation.
On the days you just don’t have the time to whip into Posh, use one of these videos below to help you out with your brows. One is for super thin brows, and the other is for normal-to-overgrown brows. Enjoy!
NORMAL-TO-THICK BROWS + BROW MAINTENANCE:

Merry Weekend from your web-gal,
