This question was posed to me recently, and I had to think hard about my answer. Was it a good hair day? Nice lipstick? Being in good shape? Having a manicure? High heels? The answer to all of those was "no", although they all help, especially a good hair day. My answer is having my brows done, preferably with a good arch.
For many years I didn't realize what an effect good eye brows have. Then I saw a movie with Angelina Jolie in it. She was one of the most stunning women I'd ever seen. Over time I pondered what made her so attractive. The full lips were an easy thing to choose. But the longer I looked at her, the more I realized that for me, it was her eyes. Specifically, her eye brows. They had such a great arch. She always looked like she was saying "come here, baby" without saying a word. (see the following photos)
|Look at the arch in Angelina Jolie's brows - a fabulous seductive look|
|Hardly any make up, but the arch in the brow still makes her look fantastic|
|Angelina's brows are a little thicker now (as that is the current look), but they still have a great arch|
Recently I've been very short on cash, so instead of my monthly waxing, I've been plucking my own. It's not nearly as painful as I remembered, and I'm pleased with the results. I will never be able to get an arch like Olivia Wilde (see below), but my own is not too shabby (scroll to the last photos).
|Olivia Wilde's brows are favorites of mine, too. All in all, her eyes are beautiful.|
|This photo of Olivia Wilde shows that it doesn't matter what color your brows are, as long as they're visible|
|My own brows aren't even - my right one is higher and has a better arch than the left|
|Make sure that your brows are dark enough to be a frame for your eyes|
