Give your brows a big (or little) boost
I honestly can’t remember the last time I got my eyebrows done—but I can tell you that it was sometime before the holidays. Making an appointment has been on my to-do list for about a month, and there’s no specific reason I haven’t gone (I guess I’m just feeling lazy in the personal-maintenance department). Last night I took a good look at my brows and realized I don’t even need to go, so now I’m wondering what’s going on. I used to go every six to eight weeks and pluck almost daily between appointments. Could my brow growth be slowing down with age? If so, it’s not really a problem.
It seems all I really need these days is a bit of product intervention with It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil topped off with a light swipe of Brow Power Pomade, so naturally I started exploring other enhancement options, and Josie Maran’s new The Good Brow caught my attention. With a brow pencil on one end for shaping and filling and a highlighting pencil on the other, just a little handiwork is all it takes to create natural-looking definition and give the eyes a lift. And it’s available in Light/Medium and Medium/Deep so all of us can get in on the action.
If you have under-achieving brows and need a more significant boost (or you just want to rock a Brooke Shields/Cara Delevingne-esque look), check out LashFood’s BrowFood Velvet 3D Brow Glide. Packed with pigment, this one product acts as a conditioner, thickening gel, styling wax and pomade—and growth-stimulator. The dual-purpose applicator features a sponge tip for precise color placement and a spoolie brush to blend and smooth stray hairs, and the waterproof formula stays put all day without smudging or flaking. It’s also available in five shades so you’re sure to find your perfect match. (See the transformation for yourself here.)
Regardless of which end of the spectrum your brows lie, I’m sure we can all agree the one 90s trend we don’t want to see again is thin, overplucked arches, right?
