DIY Brow Control



Got nicely shaped brows but still find the odd few stubborn hair stray, slides, budge out of shape? It’s ok, it happens with us too and yes it’s annoying. To fix it and make sure your brows stay in perfect shape till the time you hit bed at night, we’ve come down to the top 5 DIY brow control!

The comb makes it easy to brush the brow back in shape whilst applying the clear mascara –  the best method out of all to keep the brow in place all day .

2. Vaseline (petroleum jelly)

Applied with a cotton bud/ tip of finger over the brow then comb with a disposable mascara brush or even a normal hair comb.

3. Castor oil

Dab a little castor oil on brows and avoid using too much – or else you will walk out with shiny gunky eyebrows – yikes! Not the attention your brows want!
