Beauty Beat. Raising Eyebrows

February 12, 2008 • Beauty

Right before leaving to visit family for the holidays I had a run-in with a militant eyebrow waxer. I said I liked my brows on the thicker side. Not Brooke Shields a la 1982, but not quite Greta Garbo either. Guess who listened? Not her! I looked too severe with my wisps of furrow. I had never before needed an eyebrow filler, just gel to tame the beasts. Now I am filling like a pro while I wait for my brows to grow back…I pray. Thing is, I rather like the new look!

Enjoy the fruits of my research!

    I too have begged for mercy at the hands of a militant eyebrow plucker — unfortunately that person was me! Thank God for these great kits 🙂
