This only worked for the late and great Greta Garbo.
However, there is a way to shave your brows that is perfectly fine. And not clown like. There are teeny miniature razors called eyebrow razors. Target sells a brand called Stiles. They run a few dollars, but you can find them at Big Lots, same brand, for around a buck.
This razor replaces tweezing (which is terribly painful) and waxing (which isn't always convenient). I haven't had my brows waxed in years. I refuse to pay for something I can do myself....like my brows or my hair or my nails. I love to remind my husband how low maintenance I am and how much money I save him.
Generally we use a Sally Hansen facial hair removal lotion. I've taught my daughters to do the same. It's stinky, but they can easily shape their brows with a Q-Tip and do it themselves. When I came across the Stiles Eyebrow Razor, we all fell in love. It's very convenient.
In the 80s when I was a teen, I had what was referred to as Brooke Sheilds eyebrows. I loved them, very full. Back then we loved big bushy eyebrows. Now that I'm in my 40s, my brows are less full and thick so I've learned to implement with brow shadows. Below, I let my brows grow like a crazy person, just for this tutorial. It has nothing to do with me being lazy or busy or never spending too much time in front of the mirror. Not at all. It was just for THIS post. I swear.
There are photos of me here with no make-up. Please make sure you
are seated and not under the care of a physician.
You have been warned.
Here it is.
And there's the teenie little razor.
And here is the monster scary brow.

Now, for some more help.
There are literally tons of brow
kits out there. This is mine.
Now, that looks better.
