To Look Instantly Awake: Groom Your Brows

Erin thought she could get away with infrequent plucking because her brows are blond. “But even light fuzz on the lids can give eyes a sleepy, enclosed look,” says Turnbow. So she removed the hairs that grew below Erin’s brow line. Next, she filled in Erin’s brows with pencil one shade deeper than her brow hairs. “The combination of tweezing and darkening your brows helps frame your eyes and makes them sparkle,” says Turnbow. “I’m surprised by how much more open my eyes seem. I promise I’ll keep this up! It took less than five minutes,” says Erin.
