Do you have good and bad eyebrow days? I sure do. My eyebrows are high maintenance. They somehow are both too bushy and wild AND too thin in spots at the same time. I guess they are just paying me back for some unfortunate tweezing mishaps over the years. So I use an eyebrow brush, brow gel and powder and I fill in those suckers. My brow brush seems to work great for a while but then it will disintegrate on a morning when my brows are especially rebellious. My favorite brush for taming eyebrows is only sold in a set and I really don’t feel like spending money to replace all of those brushes when I only need one.
The last time my eyebrow brush broke I went to go buy a new one and was suddenly hit with an Oprah moment of enlightenment in the toothpaste aisle. Toothbrushes! My local grocery store sells individual ones for just 65 cents. So yes, I now use a toothbrush on my eyebrows; it works great, lasts a long time, and is easy to clean.
Have a secret tool that isn’t found in the beauty department? Spread the love!
