A Boon To At-Home Brow Maintenance


I swear by my brow groomer. Jimena and I have been together for almost three years now and I won’t let anyone else tend to my arches—except, of course, myself, when intense workloads and social obligations conflict with my ability to get to Robin Evans Skincare every three weeks. While I’m fairly confident in my tweezing and trimming abilities (a borderline OCD personality demands bright light, a magnifying mirror, and a very sharp set of Tweezerman tweezers), every once in a while I take it a little too far, plucking one too many hairs and leaving some sparse areas. I still haven’t completely mastered the art of brow powders, pencils, and waxes, but it’s at these moments that I try to hone my skills. Dior’s Diorshow Brow Styler was the subject of my latest trial and error effort; it comes in one universal shade with a brush on the other end for blending. The deep brown color was a surprisingly good match for my onyx hairs once I realized that the trick was to tread lightly when using its ultra-fine point (a heavy-handed application is very, um, apparent and can leave you worse off than when you started). A few quick upward brushstrokes and my brows looked almost as good as if Jimena’s divine hands had shaped them herself. Almost.
