I don’t know about you but my eyebrows have a mind of their own. Getting them to stay in place has never been an easy task. I’ve tried products geared toward eyebrow wrangling, but they either don’t hold effectively enough, or they get crunchy and flaky. Here are two easy and cheap tricks for taming those brows into submission, while repurposing something you already own.
1. Grab a colorless natural lip balm, like the Weleda Everon Lip Balm (review to follow) or the Jao Lip Balm my beauty partner, Jaclyn Ferber, recommended. Swipe it lightly over each brow. Then take a spoolie brush and brush those brows into the shape you want, while working in the balm.
2. Another great brow groomer in a pinch is using your hairspray. Grab that spoolie brush again, spray it lightly with your favorite hairspray and run it through your brows.
And presto, beautifully groomed brows that last, without needing to add another product to your arsenal!
Skin Food is truly food for parched skin! Nothing cures flaky patches better. Dry elbows, knees, lips, hands, feet have met their match with this certified natural ointment. Say goodbye to chapped lips, cracked heels and callouses. Overnight, the essential fatty acids and Vitamin E in this intensive, super-moisturizing balm will heal and restore over-stressed, dry skin.
Drawbacks? The thick texture and herby scent might feel greasy and overwhelming to some, but both subside. Personally, I love to slather Skin Food on for baby-soft, resilient skin. I prefer to use this at night to really let it soak in, but it does impart a nice sheen for the daytime, if you like that look. The results? Consistently smooth, radiant and well-fed skin.
Really work/rub it with your fingers before applying it on your face or body.
Mix a bit into your foundation and then apply for a gorgeous, well-nourished, hydrated glow.
Pat some in under your eyes overnight. Any puffiness will have subsided by the time you get up.
