Brow Maintenance | Trompe l’oeil Cosmetiques
by Guest Glossist Noelani Zervas | Mon Petit Chou Chou
“Eyebrows should never be trendy,” per brow expert and Trompe l’Oeil Cosmetiques make up studio founder Jill Markowicz. “If you make a mistake, they may not grow back.”
Don’t you wish someone had given this sage advice to your 14 year old self, wielding tweezers with nary a thought in the world? Over plucking is a lesson most of us have learned the hard way, but take heart, the brow can rebound.
As we enter the sizzling months of summer, it is a great time to give your brows a break. Hair growth can actually increase during the warmer season, as our body sees a spike in hormones related to growth during the dog days of summer.
Take a cue from our browtiful sisters in arms out there- Kim Kardashian, Scarlett Johansson and of course, the timeless (and full brow standard) Brooke Shields and let your brow grow to its fullest potential.
In the interim, fake it til you make it, or groom what you have, with Markowicz’s line of Trompe l’oeil brow pencils.
