In order to be the most beautiful version of ourselves, we women have to go through some pretty rigorous beauty routines. Now, when you’re in a relationship, do you want your man to know how much work you put into yourself, or do you want him to think you were born with it, no Maybelline needed. We checked in with our Facebook followers to see what they had to say. 

Jacque: The cellulite cream. And YOU know why, ugh! But he said I look good.

Mommy Needs Alcohol: Girl bye. I don’t hide crap. 16 years together 5 married with 2 kids. He done seen my insides cut open (c-section) so seeing me exfoliate my pores etc is really not a big deal.

Oh, eyebrows…

When we get them done, they can open your face in ways you never thought or dreamed of. And when we don’t, they can make us look like unkempt Neanderthals. A good or bad set of eyebrows can define you. I loved Lauryn Hill’s brows back in the day, hated Bette Davis’ and was just puzzled by Groucho Marx’s caterpillars. If you’re looking for inspiration on how to make your own brows do big things so that they can make your eyes pop, we’ve supplied some looks from models, and other celebrities who keep their eyebrows looking fresh and clean. Happy tweezing! Or whatever it is you do for brow maintenance…

Bey doesn’t have the thickest, nor the thinnest eyebrows out there, but somehow she manages to keep them full and arched in all the right places. Back when I used to get my brows threaded, crazy enough, Beyoncé’s eyebrows were an example of a look that you could get, and many women wanted them. Why? Maybe because they stay full up to the very end of the brow and still have enough of a prominent arch in the middle to give your face a little more flair without looking like a caricature.
