In the basket of “ultra-difficult DIY beauty treatments” is shaping your own brows. Trust me on this. Before starting my job as beauty editor of The Glow, I panicked and used nail scissors to cut my brow hairs until they were really short. It was a gigantic disaster, and I’ve been growing my brows out ever since.
Enter: The Brow Buddy Kit by Billion Dollar Brows, $29.00, a brow-shaping tool which is newly available at Mecca Cosmetica. It’s a plastic contraption which guides you in designing the perfect shape for your eyebrows from the start, to the arch, to the tail.
It’s kind of like a ruler, or a set-square, for your brows. By using the plastic “arms” of this tool to align parts of your eyebrows to your nose and eyes, you can ideally create gorgeously symmetrical eyebrows. It’s enough to make Cara Delevingne jealous.
Before Brow Buddy.
Here's my eyebrows in their natural state. I've used a tinted brow wax to fill in a few bald patches, as well as a clear gel to groom everything into place. But apart from that, I've just let my eyebrows grow out into their natural shape.
