When it comes to style, there’s no debating whether or not Frida Kahlo was an icon. Her distinctive fashion sense has been both applauded and appropriated the world over. In fact, long before Vogue used her as a “muse” for their own pieces, they featured her as a subject in their pages during the height of her popularity.
Now, lovers of their own Latina culture, body hair and Kahlo are getting a chance to pay tribute to the artist’s looks thanks to a new reveal of her best-kept beauty secret: a brow pencil.
