Hi everyone, Just curious, do you maintain the shape of your eyebrows regularly? What kind of 'equipment' do you boast of? Tweezers, eyebrow blade, eyebrow brush, eyebrow pencil, template of shapes? Personally I must confess that I'm quite lousy at maintaining nice eyebrows. I don't pluck the stray hairs regularly - I'm sure some of you do it on a daily basis, and I used to get them shaped when i was still doing facials regularly, but now I've stopped and have just let them eyebrows grow!! But my eyebrows are kinda sparse so they don't look too unruly. Recently I bought a new eyebrow pencil from The Face Shop which is Korean owned - think it's quite a funky shop. Share your eyebrow maintenance routine if you have one!

Guess what, I am blessed with beautiful eyebrows. They are in perfect shape. I have luckily passed this on to my daughter too. The only thing what i do is before leaving the house for the function, I brush my eyebrow with the tip of the comb.

I'm cursed with the dreaded uni-brow, so I at least yank the hairs between the two brows out. When it gets to bad, I wax mine, it's a lot easier and faster for me.

I don't use any of them to shape my eyebrows. If I need to, I will go to a salon and have them done at the same time my hair is done. I look older whenever my eyebrows are thin, so I them grow a little more, not too thick but not too thin and still in regular shape. I like Angelina Jolie's eyebrow but I think having that eyebrow will make me look 30 and I prefer not to look my age.

can share if i don't have one? i have thick eyebrows but i'm a lazy person. so like you i have them shaped when i go for my facials. it's like three or fours months once. as for the rest of the time, i just let them grow. even with my eyebrows shaped, i still don't use a eyebrow pencil. coz my eyebrows are really thick - think Zhong Kui the ghost catcher :p

I maintain mine about twice a week by plucking the little hairs that have grown in that look bad. About once a year I end up getting really sick and I neglect them for a week or two which prompts me to go to the salon to have them waxed. Then I start my twice weekly routine again just by plucking the new stuff that grew in. My brows are kind of getting grey so on a daily basis I color them with brown pencil and then brush them under control with a small brow brush.

I've not tried waxing, but I've tried threading - if done by someone really experienced it hardly hurts!

I just tweeze every month or sometimes everyother month depending on if I remember and I sometimes darken my eyebrows alittle with an eyebrow pencil since I have dark hair and light eye brows it looks a little funny sometimes.

I am usually lazy when it comes to eyebrow maintenance. I use tweezers to pluck them and whenever I can afford to get a pedicure or manicure done, then I get my eyebrows and any other facial hair waxed properly. It's only when I notice them,like really notice them, then I do something about it. Other than that, its probably only a few times a month I pluck them, maybe less LOL

using tweezers is already better than me! I don't have thick eyebrows so not so confident of plucking properly!

My eyebrow maintenance includes, tweezers, epilator, angled brush, special brow shadow that I make myself, scissors. That's it I think. I only do brow maintenance about every 2 weeks, my brows are a little sparse also so I fill them in a bit with shadow.
