By the time a woman is in her 50’s, she has surely seen the changes in the face, particularly in the eye area. This includes heavy eye lids, under eye bags and wrinkles. The eyebrows are also affected as they lose their shape and definition, partly due to the natural aging process and partly from over-tweezing when you were younger. You then need to use an eyebrow pencil to re-create a stronger, and more defined eyebrow shape. When doing this, women will generally follow along their natural shape, but this is where the problem lies. Accentuating a drooping, flat brow only accentuates a women’s age.
So the trick is this. As crazy as it sounds, tweeze ALL of the outer half of your eyebrows. (Yes, literally remove what I know you are trying desperately to keep.) Then, take your eyebrow pencil and create a new outer half with a higher arch. You’ve now just given yourself an instant eye lift taking years off your looks in the process! Why accentuate the shape of a 50 year old flat eyebrow when you can create a younger, more youthful-looking shape like a 30 year old? Since the eyes are the windows to the soul, having a strong nicely arched eyebrow matters. Yes, you need to part with a few of your eyebrows and commit to using an eye brow pencil daily (if you’re not already doing so), but this is far easier and cheaper than getting an eye lift, that’s for sure.
