Brows and the Trans Girl

Recently I ran a post here in Cyrsti's Condo which basically went into my adventures over the years with eyebrows. Taking care of your brows once again proves this "girl thing" is intense and sometimes painful!

Of course as Karma usually dictates I just ran into the "10 rules for creating perfect brows" from Lucky Magazine.
With all of these "rules" I know many, if not most of us in the cross dressing -  transgender community are still closeted and can not apply all the tips.
But we can pick and choose the most helpful ones and make a dramatic change to our appearance.

Here are a few I picked that may help:

1. “Draw an invisible line straight up from the outer corner of your nose: Your brow should start here and end along a line from the corner of your nose to the outer corner of your eye. The highest part of your arch should line up just outside your pupil.”
2. “Shower first to open your pores, soften your skin and make tweezing easier. After, use aloe gel to prevent redness and bumps.”
3. “Pull hairs in the direction of growth, one by one, working in natural light.”
4. “Use a regular (not magnifying) mirror;otherwise you can end up with a hole. If you can’t see the hair in a regular mirror, neither can anyone else.”

For my successes and failures in this all so important beauty area go here.
