Brow Check

In beauty, makeup on August 14, 2008 at 1:02 pm

This one is for all you DIYers out there.

I have always been the type of person that never wanted to depend on anyone for anything – not even my own beauty needs and maintenance.  I learned how to cut my own hair and even do my own pedicures.  I have also learned how to do my own eyebrows.  One of the greatest inventions ever is Ardell Brow Shapers (cold wax strips).  They can be found at any drugstore (I love CVS) and they only cost around $4.99.  You get 21 pre-cut strips (for above and below the brow) that are quick, safe and easy to use.  Great for in between visits to your brow stylist or even better if you’ve given them a pink slip.  All you have to do is figure out the direction of hair growth (these strips are perfect for thick or thin eyebrows), cleanse the area, select a strip, carefully apply, use one hand to pull skin taut and with the other hand gently but firmly peel strip in opposite direction of hair growth.  Fill in your brows with a brown pencil or brow powder (if necessary) and there you have it – beautiful eyebrows.
