Tuck it into your recyclable backpack where it's easily accessible.

Stow a few of these magical pencil-like devices in your pocket or purse. You'll always be prepared for emergency eyebrow situations. No one will know if you were born with those black lines around your eyes, or if you manually drew them onto your face while looking into the bathroom mirror.
