Beauty Tip: Moisturise Your Eyebrows

3 Nov

There’s no denying it: my eyebrows have dandruff.  I won’t post a photo of it because, eurgh.

Blogging curse:

self-conscious about my eyebrows.

I post a lot of photos of myself on my blog (and yet I am not at all vain; aren’t I lovely?).  I began to notice a while back that my eyebrows look massive in photographs.  They are not massive, but they look it.  

I keep my eyebrows trim with Spud’s nose hair clippers* but, despite being quite narrow, they look bushy.  It may be my glasses making them look like an old man’s because, when I take off the glasses and look at my eyebrows in the mirror, they are definitely not bushy.  Not now I have had at them with my Mum’s old tweezers.

*The clippers he gave to me one Christmas, not any clippers he might use on his own nose. Eurgh again.  What’s wrong with you people?

I have pared them back to look almost pencilled in but now I am afraid to take a photograph because what if I’m wrong and they are still as bushy as a squirrel’s tail?

Also, I noticed something when I was de-hairing myself: the skin on my eyebrows is really dry.   I moisturise regularly so I don’t understand it.  I slather that stuff on my face every day, as my mother taught me (I wish I had listened to her when she said slap it on your chin to keep it from doubling and your neck to keep it from wrinkling but you know what teenage daughters are like).  I always have cream in the house because I have a friend who is allergic to everything and she always gives me her handcream gift sets after Christmas (do I own nothing in my beauty regimen that I bought for myself?).  

I don’t understand it.  

Ah well.  Time to trim my moustache.  Where are the Hub’s clippers?
