MAC Brow Clear Finisher

One of my many lazy traits is that I don't like plucking my eye brows too much. Many girls I know pluck them into these perfect and narrow arches, and while that looks great on some people, it just looks so superficial on others. Some of my brow hair is a bit long and they droop down so they make it look like I've got hair under the brows and mess up the arches. One way to deal with this (not from solid knowledge) is that you can cut long eye brow hair shorter. I can' t even figure out how to pluck my eye brows to get that arch, so I definitely don't want to start cutting my brow hair. (And I'm still way too cheap to get a professional plucker to do my brows.)

The second way is use a product to make the brow hair stay in position. This way can be done in a variety of products. You've probably seen those eye brow shapers that look like mascaras, such as from Bobbi Brown. I've thought about trying those mascara-looking brow shapers out but I figured since I wouldn't be using it often, I wanted a product that I wouldn't have to replace after six months usage. Thankfully, when I visited MAC to look at eye shadows, the saleslady recommended me MAC's Brow Finisher (picture above,) which is basically a wax stick. It applies on clear so you can't really tell you've applied makeup on there. Most importantly, I just really like how simple it is to just stroke the finisher at the outer ends of the brow to keep the brow in position. So even if you're only so-and-so eyebrows, fixing their shape really helps define them. It is now a must-have in my makeup bag. Loves it!

Try getting them waxed
It's pretty cheap, $15, and doesn't hurt at all. And your brows look great afterward.

OMG this is heaven sent!

I get mine waxed, about $15 a pop every 3 weeks or so. But they grow so fast that it's hard to keep them tamed even in between. I always just used water to smooth them down. I have to try this stuff!

i've been plucking my eyebrows since i was 15 (now 23). Since i've done it for so many years my hairs have gotten thin around the shape so i can go a couple of weeks without plucking them and they still look decend. I don't like getting them wax cause the one time i did at 15, they left me looking like i had plastic surgery on my eyebrows ( you know all going up, an evil look). So i bowed to not let anyone touch them ever since. From time to time i use aloe vera gel on them and it works the same as any other gel.

I get my brows threaded, there's a chain in Los Angeles called Ziba, you can find them at zibabeauty.com. they're really quick and $8 or $9. I do it every 3 weeks.

I trim my brows too, they droop down like you said, but I use a little comb thingy, to keep from getting too close to my skin, so they're even.

Getting them waxed doesn't cost much (in Australia anyway)... just get them waxed once to get the general shape, then as they grow back, pluck any strays. That way you get the shape, but only need to was every 6 months or so.

if you want to cut the longer hairs shorter jsut brush them upwards and use small scissors to clip the longer ones. it works great.

I've been looking for something like that MAC wax stick because I hate to pluck my brows and can't afford to get them waxed every three weeks...so it sounds good to me. As a side-note, getting your eyes waxed every month for $15 costs $180 a year. Wow.

Plucking your own eyebrows really isn't that hard, you just pluck the stray hairs in the bottom of your brows that mess up the arch. You can also do what Katie said, too. Anyways, I really want to try that stick-thing...but, Vaseline works just as well- I use it several times a day on my eyebrows to keep them looking nice.

If you are dead set against plucking, you should really consider trimming. I recommend using a pair of nail scissors, they are small and easy to work with. You probably have a pair lying around from a manicure set. If not they are super cheap and can be picked up at the drugstore.

To prep brush the eyebrows upwards using a clean mascara brush. Then trim along the very top of the eyebrows. Brush back in place and voila, no more bushy brows. In less than a minute you can achieve a more polished face. I've even got my brother and boyfriend trimming their brows!

this product seems completely unnecessary to me.. i have been using hair mousse for years, it's completely harmless and better than any brow product there is, and totally free since most of us already have hair mousse. and all i have to do is apply a tiny drop in the morning, and my eyebrows stay in shape for the rest of the day. if I accidentally mess them up during the day, i just go over them with a wet finger, and i can re-shape them.
if i don't have mousse, or forgot to apply it, i use a tiny bit of clear lipgloss(use the tip of your finger), and it also works fine.

To Harrods Girl and those who have tried it or similar products, Does the product work with more stubborn and courser brow hairs? My eyebrows are not out of shape but they just STICK OUT. I've tried clear mascara and it doesn't work. I tried trimming them once and it made them worse.

i just started using this product and it is fabulous. i have full brows, and i'm asian so they grow from various directions...mostly downwards. i like this wax stick because you get a better hold compared to the clear mascara. i like that it is not slick or shiny-looking, i hate the wet eyebrow look. it has a very natural effect and makes my eyebrows behave. i have tried everything, even the suggestions of vaseline or mousse, but vaseline wipes off and makes your forehead break out, and mousse can be dry and flaky at the end of the day. this stuff really rocks and is super quick and easy to use. i highly recommend this product.
