Making This One Tiny Change Is The Secret To Perfect Eyebrows

It appears changing just one element of our brow routine could help us avoid disaster.


Bigger is better, at least when it comes to brows these days. Full, fluffy arches like these haven’t been this popular since Brooke Shields slipped into her Calvins back in the ’80s. But, if years of plucking, waxing, and threading have left your brows looking slimmer than you’d like, don’t worry, going forward, there’s hope.

That’s cos according to brow expert Sania Vucetaj many of us are making one crucial mistake, and it’s tweezing in bright, natural light that’s doing the damage. You should instead be using your tweezers in dull light, she confirms.

Why so?

“The more lighting you have, the more chances you have to tweeze too much and get obsessive,” she explains. “Many of my clients who have homes in suburban areas all have that natural, bright light that comes through the windows and it causes them to tweeze more, resulting in thinner brows.” Instead, “let your hair follicles breathe, and you’ll see your brows come in fuller,” she advises.

So ladies, next time you’re plucking, in the words of Nelly Furtado, turn off the light. Or y’know, dim it at least.
