Among the things I’ve accomplished thus far in my life…
- Met the sweetest, most loving, most fashionable feline in the greater Bay Area and quite possibly the world, and it officially turned me into a full-tilt crazy cat lady.
- Found THE ULTIMATE BROWNIE RECIPE.
- Totally embarrassed myself in front of François Nars.
And now I can add witnessing the setting of a Guinness world record in the brow arts to the list!
Dude, I was obsessed with the Guinness Book of World’s Records when I was a kid (was I the only one?). The latest edition was always the first book I grabbed off the shelf at the school book fair.
So, when Benefit asked me if I wanted to bear witness to Guinness World Record history (and that it would also have something to do with brows), you better believe Raul and I said yes.
The event took place last Friday in San Francisco’s Union Square, where Benefit set a new Guinness World Record for — wait for it — the most people filling in their eyebrows simultaneously, and hi — they did it just in time for October 2nd, which is National Brow Day, a.k.a. the Super Bowl of Brows in Benefit’s world.
Yes, brow history was set by 295 Bene-babes and dudes (a few were dudes) of all ages…
Fun fact: If you’re going to set a record for filling in brows, all of the participants need to remove their existing brow product first…because you gotta take ’em off before you can put them back on.
The actual brow products were provided by Benefit goody bags, and the participants then waited to make history in one of the two designated hot pink brow waiting areas marked in the middle of the square.
