You've heard it before — your eyes are the windows to your soul, and your eyebrows are the window treatments. That might be true, but having a great set of brows goes beyond that. Nothing, not even your favorite red lipstick, says "I've got my life together" quite like a set of full, thick, symmetrical brows — and there is no balancing act quite like the one of keeping your brows looking salon perfect.
