Eyebrows are one of my most favorite topics. I most definitely had my own bad experiences with some bad brow jobs...too thin, too much hair left in the wrong areas, too much off the front and too much off the end. Sound familiar?

Dark circles under your eyes may be caused by allergies, genetics or age, but when you wake up with them, you're probably more concerned about how to make them go away than how they got there. If you get dark circles frequently, try sleeping on two pillows with your head propped up, which helps to prevent fluid from collecting under your eyes and causing shadows.
Give your hairstyle some life and lift with a spiky haircut. You don't need to get a mohawk to rock some spiky locks. You can add layers, use hair products or insert clips to create a spiky hairstyle that works for you. Remember that maintaining a spiky haircut requires more frequent cuts and often more styling products than longer haircuts. On the plus side, you will use less shampoo with spikes than with long hair.
Short and thinning eyelashes can be about more than just your looks. Like the hair on your head, eyelashes can be an indication of your overall health, especially if there are changes in the length or growth pattern of your eyelashes. Whatever the cause, when taking steps to grow your eyelashes longer, you will have to be patient, because eyelashes grow very slowly. It may be several weeks before you notice a difference.
Sparse eyelashes may be a cosmetic problem you can change with a little help from your doctor. Eyelash hypotrichosis, the term used to describe inadequate or not enough eyelashes, can be treated with a topical medication approved by the FDA. However, this medication, bimatoprost, can cause odd and even permanent side effects.
It's not the years of laughing and frowning that leave you with wrinkles at the corners of your mouth, but the gradual erosion of tissue beneath the skin, explains dermatologist Mary Lupo, MD, in Oprah's magazine, "O." Although habitual expressions can contribute to wrinkles around your mouth, age and sun damage are the primary culprits. The best treatment for your mouth wrinkles depends on whether you have just a few creases or very deep wrinkles.
Few things age you quite like dark circles and puffy eyes. The circles and puffiness will also make you look tired, even if you got a full night of sleep. The causes of dark circles and puffiness differ, so if you suffer from both, you may need to take two steps to get rid of them.
Dying light colored hair to a darker color can bring out your eye color and enhance your skin tones. Lighter colored hair tends to absorb the darker color well, making it possible to get the color you want with the first try. However once your hair is colored dark, it can be difficult to fix a mistake. The right color selection, prepping, and knowing what mistakes to avoid will help you achieve a dark color that makes you want to show off your hair rather than hide it under a hat.
While you may not like noticing them in the mirror, those little wrinkles that form around your eyes are a common sign of aging. Known as crow's feet, those small creases that materialize on the outer corners of your eyes appear due to repeated facial movements such as squinting and smiling. Various types of treatments may help minimize the appearance of these facial wrinkles.
