My Quest for Cara D's Power Brow
One editor tries every method under the sun to bring her brows from wimpy to fierce
The Fix: Not to be discouraged, I went back to Plain for some advice on improving my technique. "Don't just draw a line. Blend with quick, short strokes and feather the pencil into your natural hairs," she says. "Use a spoolie brush to go back through the line and give it a more natural finish." Also, if you have stubby brows like me, you don't have to follow the Brow Buddy's guidelines to an exact T (um, definitely good to know!). Start by drawing in a little further in or out on the edges and increase that amount as you continue to grow your brows out. At night, apply a brow-boosting serum like BDB Brow Boost. "When we're constantly waxing and tweezing, it makes the hair follicle weak and it doesn't want to grow anymore. Just like conditioning the hair on your head, a serum applied as part of your nightly routine (after you wash your face and remove your makeup) can help your brows grow and become fuller and thicker."
