Guy, let’s talk about eyebrows. As travel beauty guru Stephanie Flor once said, “If eyes are the windows to the soul, eyebrows are the curtains.” Has a wiser beauty proverb ever been spoken? Not likely. We’re always trying to figure out what the secret product combination is for achieving those Cara Delevigne-esque brows and thanks to Cosmo, we may have FINALLY found it.
Last Friday, Cosmo released a live video on Facebook with celebrity makeup artist Sir Jon. The video was primarily documenting Cosmo beauty editor Carly Cardellino’s journey to bleached brows. But throughout the video, Sir Jon took questions from viewers. When asked how to achieve those natural, Brooks Sheilds kind of brows, Sir Jon dropped a totally unexpected product recommendation. He said, “Rogaine Foam is really awesome when it comes to tweezing the hair back that you tweezed away or if too much hair was taken away at one point.” Rogaine? Wow, blowing our minds over here SJ. If you’re really not down for Rogaine, he also adds that warm castor oil also has a similar effect.
So once your brows are full and perfectly shaped, how should you keep them in place? Well, you can use Glossier’s famous brow gel OR if you’re looking to save a few bucks, you can try Jon’s second beauty hack. He boldly tells viewers, “When in doubt, bust out an Elmer’s glue stick and brush those babies to the sky.”
Alright, so it looks like we’re skipping the trip to Sephora and instead heading to Walgreens for Rogaine and Elmer’s glue. Welp, we did not see that coming.
