The Best Eyebrow Grooming Tips From The Streets

Eyebrows get the brunt of our grooming woes. If burning wax wasn't enough, some of us undergo the pains of a tiny and taut thread to get our arches right.

But where there are products like eyebrow pencils and brushes, there's beauty innovation at its finest. Instead of hitting the salon, girls all over New York City are taming their brows on their own time... and in their own way.

Since we're often looking for techniques to keep up our grooming game within our budgets, we took to the streets to see how women like us stay loyal to their brow routine.

1. Believe in the power of your brush.

Natalie says: "I like to go with the shape of my brows. I fill in where they get lighter, rather than filling in the whole thing. Then, I brush it afterwards to make [my brows] look less harsh."
