These are just so wacky but leave it to the innovate Japanese or Koreans (not sure where these originated from) to come up with these guides.

Eyebrow guide:



Mascara guide (this I found sold on Amazon.com as well):

Hehe, I'm in absolute love with Japanese and Korean beauty tools and makeup styles and pretty much everything they do and when looking at things i find crazy stuff like those things all the time. It always gives me a good laugh xD sometimes they end up being really awesome though

It definitely does! My sister had to convince me to try it when I was a teenager because it freaked me out so bad.

I do too! I get squeamish every time I use one - I keep my hand REALLY steady because I'm so paranoid about ripping my lashes out.

I really like the Eyebrow Guide; I may have to get that!

If any of  you live near a Daiso, it's a Japanese dollar store - but everything's $1.50, LOL. They have those mascara mask thingies there, along with other weird (and interesting) beauty products. I'll take pictures next time. 

You can also find these types of things at Mitsuwa (Japanese supermarket chain), and to a lesser extent Ranch99 (Chinese/Asian supermarket chain).

One awesome thing I did find there were reusable 30ml (1 floz) vacuum pump bottles to de-pot my Revlon Colorstay and Neutrogena foundations from those stupid glass bottles.

I know in Seattle these kinds of tools are sold at Uwajimaya however they jack up the prices! LOL I was going to pick up the mascara guard but wasn't willing to pay $15 for it.
