You can always count on Lil’ Kim to change up her
face style game. For a while she was looking a bit like Kim Kardashian’s distant, older relative, but all that changed when she got rid of her eyebrows. She didn’t need those things anyway. This particular trend would look ridiculous on me, but I marvel at women who can pull it off. Click through to see what I’m talking about.
Dear Anastasia Brow Wiz (or as I fondly call you, Stasi),
We’ve only known each other for a few months now, but you’ve already saved me from moments of embarrassment, and I love you for that. You’ve helped my brows look as if they’re groomed, even though it’s been months since I’ve had them done. After having to grow out my brows twice already this year, I’m wary of letting someone new shape my brows. The only problem is my beloved eyebrow threader is an hour-long train ride away.

We’ve spent much time and money waxing, tweezing, and threading the hairs that grow between our two eyebrows (and we imagine so have you). But this process, it turns out, isn’t shared by all women in the world. Over in Tajikistan (a small country just north of Afghanistan), women pride themselves on their full-grown brows as a mark of beauty. And for those who don’t naturally have pronounced unibrows, one can easily purchase pigmented herbs to color in the space, much like an eyebrow pencil. Keep reading »
