Most of the time, you don’t really think about your eyebrows. They tend to be some of the most neglected hairs on your body. But if they don’t look great, then it can really affect how you look.
You are asking yourself, and how do you know that Glinda?
Because for my sister’s wedding almost ten years ago, I had the bright idea of tweezing my eyebrows for the big day, as I was the maid of honor. I am actually blessed with really good eyebrows that need minimal upkeep, but for some reason, I decided more upkeep equaled better upkeep, and began tweezing away. And tweezing away some more. Just to even it out, you know?
Now, forever immortalized in her wedding pictures are my sparse, very thin brows that remind me of when guys half-heartedly grow those moustaches that are all thin and scraggly. You know the ones I’m talking about. But, these happened to be above my eyes. You can imagine how not flattering that was.
If only I had access back then to this kit by Bare Escentuals, the trauma could have been averted.
Instead of using pencil, which I have never bothered using because I always thought it looked fake, (or at the very least, required great skill not to look fake) this kit uses a brush and powder to help you fill in, shape, and make the most of your brows. Also included is brow gel to tame those unruly strays.
I wouldn’t say that this is for everyday use, but from what I hear, it can get a bit addicting because you see how fab you look with it, so you want to use it for more than just special occasions. Like all Bare Escentuals products, it comes in a nice array of different shades to complement all skin colors.
