if you wear lipstick and pluck your eyebrows, you could wear nothing else.


I remember when I was younger, my Grandma told me never to pluck my eyebrows. According to her, they were strong. As sweet as this sentiment was, my eyebrows were absolutely awful. I felt too guilty to pluck them, not wanting to disrespect her wishes. This is the reason why every awkward teenaged picture of me features the worst eyebrows you can imagine.

Eventually, I ignored my Grandma's wishes and did something about those unruly brows. I have never looked back! Even though I don't have the perfect eyebrows, I've made them work for me.

Given my past, brow care is something I tend to focus on. I do them myself, so a good brow kit is essential. Recently, I picked up this super handy brow kit that is perfect for traveling. (I love to travel, so it never hurts to have something travel friendly!)


When it's put together, it essentially looks like a pen or eyeliner. But when you take it apart, there are all of these travel-sized brow tools to keep your eyebrows looking perfect anywhere! It includes a pair of tweezers, a brow comb, an angled brush and a rounded brush. The pieces click together to create that pen-like shape. It's a really great concept and I am definitely loving the convenience of having everything all in one place.


Have you tried anything like this? How do you take care of your eyebrows?

  4. My mother told me never to pluck my eyebrows or shave my legs. She said its not something you want to start because it's never ending once you do! I listened to her about the eyebrows, I was fortunate enough to have well shaped brows. :o). Now the legs? That's a different story lol...

  12. oh wow that little 'pen' would be so handy!
    My mum was the one who told me to leave my eyebrows alone. I think I listened to her until I was 15, then started doing them myself

  14. I had such horrible thick eyebrows as a young girl, and then started tweezing myself....after having them too thin for a while and learning how to have the appropriate shape, I am proud of mine now! LOL that pen looks so convenient. I currently use smashbox for my brows but I would love to try something new!!

  21. Your Eyebrows look fantastic! I am a fan of natural eyebrows - without too much unnatural plucking like Cara Delevigne or Audrey Hepburn, this got so much style and class! Great tips by the way!
