Makeup Forever Aqua Brow

Brace yourself: this confession may rattle you. 

I’ve never waxed my eyebrows.

Perhaps my aversion to the beauty treatment so many women regard as essential as teeth brushing originated when I saw the explosion of angry red bumps the wax caused to sprout from my sister’s adolescent forehead. Not wanting to invite the same complexion catastrophe, I began the less intrusive method of tweezing and never broke the habit.

Twelve years later the task’s tediousness is wearing on me and for the first time I desire the cleaner look a wax job generates.

I plan to make an appointment soon, but upkeep isn’t the biggest battle if your brows are barely-there slivers.

Nothing reveals amateurism quite like overly-plucked eyebrows. It’s challenging to regain fullness in a way that doesn’t look like you’ve neglected to cut the grass in a couple months, but concealing imperfections, enhancing what we have and painting on what we don’t is exactly what makeup is for (right?!). Fake it til you make it, girl.

Lightly filling in sparse spots with a pencil yields a healthy, refined look that is a happy medium between rolling out of bed and wearing a white lab coat at the Clinique counter.

For a little more polish when you primp, Makeup Forever’s Aqua Brow is the answer – and currently listed on InStyle's  “Best Fall Makeup Under $25.”

In addition to providing fullness and definition, the gel lengthens so arches evenly frame eyes. The creamy formula of volatile oil and carnauba wax tames and holds wayward hairs for a smooth, combed finish that resists the elements while still managing to make you look born that way.

Eyebrows seem a negligible feature, but the arresting sight of a face without proves how imperative is a well-formed, well-groomed pair. A tiny tweak – or tweeze – and Aqua Brow squeeze will show you’re a pro.

Check out these pics of stars with awesome eyebrows. Is it coincidence they're also some of the most beautiful?
