Halal Eyebrows - 6 years of no plucking!

In Modest Makeup 0 comment

I waxed my eyebrows once,
felt the pain,
and decided I would never do that again,
so then I proceeded to take on what seemed like a less painful route:
pluck them out one by one,or
just put a razor to them every other day,
(great alternative, right?😒

But that's how it was, until about 6 years ago,

And now, i share some updates with you once in a while, because I know it's a struggle, specially in the beginning, and *specially* when we are seeing perfectly plucked and groomed eyebrows everywhere,

and you feel like you are the only crazy one that's over here with your stubby hairs and unkept looks....

but you are not alone, far from it!, these conversations bring out a lot of comments from sisters who are either starting, are halfway or some that have passed the uncomfortable phase and are finally comfortable with their natural, beautiful and God given brows,

(I'm finally on the last category now, yay!)

And isn't it interesting how eyebrows take up such a small amount of space in our face and yet they can have such a big effect on us, making us feel happy/stressed/anxious/confident/enter-your-feelings-here?

But a lot of what we think about them comes from society and whatever the trends are, so I think is key to let go of the ever changing norms that say that your brows should be pencil thin one season and bushy and full the next, and really reflect on the established rulings given to us by Islam,

ones that don't change and that make you feel better about yourself no matter what Vogue says,

And that is not to say you have to struggle and look like a mess, #TheStruggleIsReal

There ARE options for you, no matter where you are on your brow journey:

First option (and the one I have done until now) is to fill your eyebrows. This has allowed me to grow my eyebrows peacefully and and without noticing much of a difference, check out this "tutorial" (Im using the Eye and Brow pot).



    The second option would be to  dye the strays hairs to have a more clean look without having to remove anything, there are some very helpful tutorials on youtube. Although I haven't tried this myself.

    Another option is an extra step from option #1 and that is to use makeup to cover the hairs around your eyebrows. This also works for many sisters, specially when wearing heavier makeup. 

    I like to keep things simple, so filling my eyebrows with the Eye and Brow pot has been working for the past 6 years!

    And most importantly, embrace your brows the way Allah made them, because humans are always changing their mind about them! <---(click to read more on this small patch of hair on our face has changed historically)
