Tarte The Toolbox Helps Even Brow-Grooming Idiots Keep Arches Presentable

What: Tarte's The Toolbox: Brow Know-How Set, $32

Why: The first thing Tarte's Brow Know-How Set instructs you to do is measure the proper length of your eyebrows with a pencil. Well, this was enlightening in an embarrassing way, as I realized one brow is oddly longer than the other, and apparently has been that way for much of my adult life. That aside, the rest of the instructions and tools in this quaint kit proved to be quite helpful. 

There are three stencils, brow gel, wax, powder, a pencil, and tweezers. The instructions are brief, but thorough, so you're not involved in an in-depth tutorial. Although I didn't end up tweezing off the left side of my face, I did use the wax and powder to fill in gaps. And the gel was great at keeping everything in place.

My only qualm was with the stencils. Their shapes were fine, but it took an awkward hand-arched-over-head position to keep steady. It would have been nice to have them adhere around the brow while I was toiling away.
