I Styled My Eyebrows With Soap And I’m Never Going Back

Oct 31, 2016

I have a complicated relationship with my eyebrows. I had a Frida Kahlo-style unibrow until I was 14 (it looked a lot better on her than it did on me), and recently had a tweezing accident that left me without half of my left brow. I also happen to have a vicious cowlick, which makes styling my brows on a daily basis a major pain in the butt. So when I heard that beauty bloggers were using soap to style their eyebrows, I figured what the hell? It couldn’t possibly be worse than anything my brows and I have already been through together.
