How-To: Fake a Brow Wax

Sometimes it only takes one glance in the wrong mirror to decide my brows are out of control and something must be done about them immediately. Brow kits are smart, but you may be at a loss about what to do with multiple shades of powder and a pan of wax or not want to mess with those tiny tweezers. Here are some no-pluck tips for the novice using tools you probably already have.

  • Brush brows up and to the right with a clear brow gel. Don't have any? Use hairspray and a toothbrush (preferably a spare).
  • Put some concealer on your middle finger and trace around the outline of your brows. You can't conceal an errant hair per se, but increasing the contrast between your skin and your eyebrow hair can work wonders.
  • Find a shade of shadow the color of your brows with no shimmer. Fill in lightly, ideally with an angled brush. If the color looks too dark, follow by pressing on loose powder with a puff.
