Our beauty routine is… extensive. As such, we’re constantly looking for ways to streamline it by finding multipurpose products that save us makeup-bag space and a little money. One product we recently kicked to the curb? Brow gel. Here’s how to achieve that trendy bold look without it.
What you need: Hair spray and your own two hands.
What you do: Spritz a little bit of hair spray on the tips of your middle fingers, then swipe them over your brows, moving from the inside out a few times. You can even mimic a spoolie brush by feathering your strokes upward as you go.
That’s it? Yep. You’ll obviously have the staying power from the hair spray, but they might appear a little darker, too (kind of like how your hair looks darker when it’s wet). Sure, if you need to fill in gaps or color-correct, you should probably stick to a precision pencil. But if you’re only looking to tame a few unruly pieces, a little Sleek & Shine might be all you need.
Now all you have to do is decide how to spend the $15 you just saved.
