Holly: Beauty Perspective Changed after Baby

Holly: Beauty Perspective Changed after Baby

I have always been self-conscious about my eyebrows for two reasons: 1) they are extremely thick and bushy, 2) they are so blonde that you can’t see them! Because of my blonde hair, eyebrows and eyelashes I was called an albino all through elementary school. As soon as my mom would allow make-up (the 7th grade) I wore mascara. Then, around 16 years old I realized I should do something about the eyebrows so I started plucking them and dying them and, eventually, waxing them.

I always had a thing that I didn’t want people, especially boyfriends, to see me without my make-up on because I look so drastically different without mascara on and without my eyebrows colored in. Without going in to too much detail, I was dating a guy that had never seen me without make-up on. I took a shower at his house and he came into the bathroom before I had my make-up on. He exclaimed, “did you shave all the hair on your face off?” Uh, yeah, that’s what I did. Needless to say, I broke it off with him the next day. Another boyfriend once told me, “Some girls look better with make-up and some look better without. You are just one of those girls that look better with make-up on.”  See any reason why I might be self-concsious?

When I started dating my husband, and eventually let him see me without make-up, he actually said I looked beautiful without make-up on! I guess that is one way I knew he was the one.
When Brett was born it was apparent that she was going to have light hair, light eyebrows and light eyelashes. Although she is only 16-months old she still has strawberry blonde hair, and blonde brows and lashes. While a part of me already understood what she was most likely going to go through as she got older the other part of me thought that I should be proud of my own blonde brows and lashes (something my dad, who also has blonde eyebrows and lashes, has always told me do!)! I actually wear less make-up now than I did before and I haven’t gotten my brows dyed in over a year.  I like that my daughter and I have matching light hair and I like showing it off.

This just was a small example of how my perspective changed on things after my daughter was born.

By the way- if you’ve haven’t tried eyebrow threading for your brow grooming I highly recommend it! These ‘threading’ boutiques have been popping up at all of our local malls.  Eyebrow threading is a preferred hair removal technique for a number of reasons. Unlike tweezing or plucking, eyebrow threading removes one clean line of hair all at once, making it much quicker and easier to shape the brows. Eyebrow threading also will not harm the skin like wax and some depilatory creams can. If done correctly, the skin should not be red or irritated for more than a few minutes after the eyebrow threading session. Some aestheticians also find it easier to shape eyebrows using this technique than other methods available. In my opinion, eyebrow threading hurts much less than waxing, is quicker and looks a lot cleaner. Now that I’ve done it I will never go back to waxing!
