Eyebrow Kit at CVS

Have you heard the quickest and cheapest way to get a face lift and take at least 10 years off your age (assuming you are 25+)?  

Groom your eyebrows!!!

The upper end cosmetic companies are coming out with lots of products....pens, pencils, brushes, templates.....all kinds of things.  And at a pretty price.

That's why I was SO excited when I saw this at CVS for ....$6.99!!

As young girls, we heard all kinds of advice from don't pluck from the top to don't touch them at all.  I know I was plucking and shaping my brows at a young age.....11, 12 maybe?  I was in a HURRY to grow up! lol

Wellll, ladies, it is a rare girl who has NO need to trim and shape their brows....but it is common for us to be scared to mess with them.   But the result can be incredible - I've had friends who almost fell out of their chair the first time they had them shaped by an esthetician.  Family will stop and stare trying to guess WHAT you did Makeup???  It makes that huge of a difference.

Now, if you have NEVER touched your brows, please DO go get them professionally done ONCE by a esthetician at a salon.  But after that, they are SO easy to maintain.  Truly!  And with kits like these, it makes it affordable and simple.

Made by Essence of at the end of the makeup aisle, down with the other brushes and near the nail polish section.  (I've mentioned my love affair with Essence of Beauty brushes before....)

Professionals recommend the following:  (I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL!)

Keep in mind these dimensions:

1.  Hold the template up to your natural brown.

2.  Use the eye brow pencil to sketch the basic shape.

3.  Then use the angled brush and use the eye brow powder to fill in the brow - you might have sparse brows, you might have missing brows, you might have some blonde or gray spots....

4.  Everything outside the template gets plucked or shaved off (using those eye brow shavers...)

Here are some before and after photos:

Now, if $6.99 is just too frugal for you, feel free to purchase sets such as:

  1. Great idea! Awesome plug and I love the frugal price! I might have to go run out and get one of those this morning :-)

    PS. Don't forget to stop by and enter the giveaway

  2. I have my hairdresser do mine, simply because I am 61 yrs old and wear progressive lens. Just trying to pluck between visits, it is a real challenge to get the mirror, my glasses and direction of the light to all coordinate together. I am frugal, too!

  3. After trying LOTS of different brow products... Anastasia, Smashbox and several others, I've settled on Benefit Browsings.... LOVE it... am wondering, though.... why do they give you enough powder to do 43, 238, 295 brows and enough of the "paste" to do 20? :-)

    Glad to have found your blog.... Lots of pretty thing here...

    Warm blessings,

  6. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!
