About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Files from the Brow Whisperer

Look at this intriguing contraption from Billion Dollar Brows that promises to deliver the most perfect of results. Really? It looks like a compass I used in geometry class- someone could poke their eye out with this... In my career, I have had to do a lot of tweezer interventions over the years on clients self shaping their arches. By accident you take a little more than you intended, try to even out the other side to match & pretty soon you've taken a lot of your brow off!

In terms of establishing a brow shape, I take an eyeliner & line it up with where a client's eye begins. This is where the brow should begin. The arch should be when you line the eyeliner in the center of the tip of the nose & angle it towards the hairline (see illustration). It's important to know that placement of an arch varies for everyone & you can't cookie cutter it. This is just the school of thought, since everyone's face & brows are different. I rarely if ever shorten the 'tail' or end of the brow, I just clean it up. It's important to be be conservative, since brows can thin as you age. I wax for a clean crisp shape, then tweeze to further customize the brow for the face. I truly think it's best when trying to define your brow shape to invest the money in having your brows professionally done. It's important to have an objective eye & an experienced technician that knows what works best on your face. Trust us!
Peace. Love. Brow Whisperer. M

I've had many bad experiences with brow waxing before but I think I've found the right one to handle them. I hope so at least, because I will be in 2 weddings next month and I need them perfect!

I'm sorry to hear that Ms. Housewife! Find someone whose brows you like & ask where they get them done. I've built my entire business by word of mouth.

I'm the example of too thin brows from year and years of tweezing and waxing. I've tried numerous times to let them grow in but it's a tough thing to look at for those months.

Thanks Melinda- I can't say enough about the SITS girls, I'm glad to be one of them now! As a last resort people are turning to Latisse or Rogaine to apply on their brows to get them to grow...just an FYI:)
