When you find the "right" product it can make your life much easier. I thought I'd share a few of my personal favorites in case you are looking to try something new!
A great semi-permanent eyebrow pen is the Magic Stylo. My personal favorite color (for brunettes) is espresso. It gives you a natural look that does not run, smudge or clump like traditional liners.
