The ‘90s were a glorious time for a lot of things: music, movies, and even snack foods are all nostalgia-inducing. The brow game, however? Not one of ‘em. It was a time of overplucking and skinny brows, and no one, we repeat, NO ONE, was safe — not even Jessica Alba.
As the 35-year-old mother of two recently revealed to E! News, she too fell victim to trends. “I had the thinnest, thinnest brows,” she shares. “I always looked curious… or mad.” Nowadays, The Honest Company founder is all about a bolder look, á la Lucy Hale. “I love strong brows,” she said. But Rome wasn’t built in a day, and overplucked brows don’t grow back so fast, either.
While a brow filler, like the Honest Beauty Brow Filler ($15) from Alba’s own company, can certainly help, it required some serious dedication and patience to get the brows she wanted. Luckily, the Sin City actress has a little trick up her sleeve to help speed the process along: prenatal vitamins.
“I did prenatal vitamins, and I didn’t pluck my eyebrows for like two years,” she shared. “That’s how I grew [my brows] back.” Incidentally, you can also grab them at The Honest Company in a Complete Once Daily ($20) or a Whole-Food Based version ($40).
We can’t believe the transformation! Alba has always been beautiful, but her new, lusher brows draw that much more attention to her stunning brown eyes, and it’s definitely working in her favor.
