They Really Should Put Warning Labels On These Things...

I am a natural blond and therefore my eyebrows are obsolete. I have never been able to find a eyebrow pencil that matches how light they are and when I do try to apply an eyebrow pencil, or powder, or ink, I end up looking like a blond Brooke Shields circa 1982. It is not pretty.

I used to get my brows waxed, because although you cannot see them, there were indeed bushy. Eventually I decided to wax them myself and finally I have settled on the handy dandy nose/eyebrow/bikini hair trimmer.


These are great little appliances and I have been able to keep my invisible eyebrows trimmed and shapely. One piece of advice though-if you are going to buy one of these, you need to show it to your husband and tell him that he is not to use it on any part of his body whatsoever! Imagine my horror when I walked into the bathroom one day to find my husband with my eyebrow trimmer several inches up his nose. Turns out he had been using my trimmer to tame those Wiley nose hairs. I cringe to think of my trimmer in his ear.

Anyway... the other day I was trimming my eyebrows when I thought they looked a little long in the length. I put on the trimming protector that helps to keep retards like me from shaving your eyebrow right off. Well, I thought I had put in on the "long length" side, but I guess I put it on the"short length" side.

They should put a warning on the label that the short length attachment is purely for women who shave their entire eyebrow off and then pencil in a 1950's eyebrow.

Now my invisible eyebrows are gone. What is a girl to do...

Oh my goodness! That sucks! I have the opposite problem, my eyebrows look like Brooke's all on their own. If I would let them they would no longer be eyebrowS but eyebrow!

LOL! Can you tell they're gone? My sister had a friend who shaved her eyebrows on a bet and she had so many freckles you couldn't tell they were gone.

I have Bert's eyebrow. You may want to try Bare Escentuals. They have eyebrow stuff that looks really soft. I have a friend with red hair whose eyebrows and lashes are visually non-existant. When she tried Bare Escentuals, it looked really nice and natural.

Forgive me for laughing at your pain. It's been that kind of week so that when someone else is getting a dose of Murhpy, I can laugh with you/around you. I love that you keep it real.
