Forget the Pencil: It’s All about the Brow Pen

If I can dish one bit of beauty advice, it’s NEVER get your brows tinted. And definitely NEVER get them bleached.

Nothing says “youthful” better than a set of thick and beautiful brows. While many have tried (and few have succeeded), Chantecaille has perfected the technique with their Perfect Brow trio.

I don’t even know exactly how many months ago, but at least a solid eight, I had my brows bleached. I had no idea that the odds were they would turn orange and it’s been somewhat of a nightmare ever since…
