Brow Beating

I just read this little tidbit - for the Perfect Eyebrows... Mind you, I take the time to shape my brows. I shadow and line - when they get weird looking, I do get them waxed... However -I had no idea how badly I was neglecting this clearly underattended to body part (price of all the advice below is $88, a small price to pay for flawless brows):

All this from Helen Andreos, Brow Specialist... Andreos has worked with celebrities such as Allison Janney from The West Wing, Angela Bassett, Tori Spelling, Doris Roberts Everybody Loves Raymond, Debra Messing, Cheryl Hines Curb Your Enthusiasm, Kathy Bates and the Fab Five from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

Helen offers these brow tips:

Powder skin. This helps brow pencil go on smoothly and evenly. Apply powder with the Blending Brush #4.
Find the right brow pencil shade. Try Le Crayon Poudre and select a shade that blends with your hair color, not one that is too dark.
Keep brow gel on hand. It can slightly deepen the brow hair color if brows appear too grey or too light. It also helps control and hold brow hair in place.
To define the brow, use the flat edge of Precision Brush #14 plus a concealer of your choice. To soften the definition, apply a touch of powder over the brow using Blending Brush #4.
Highlight the brow bone by applying a lighter shade of Color Design Eye Shadow in Daylight or Filigree using Precision Shadow Brush #12. Apply color both under and over the brow bone.

    I have no idea what any of that means! I'm a brunette so I don't have to do anything to my eyebrows but pluck them. I'll be sure to forward your advice to my blond/redhead freinds though.

    Oh my gosh. This is insane - people actually buy brushes only to do their brows with?!?!

    This is far to much work for me! I use to have them waxed regularly but then started saving my hard earned $$ for the adoption. I also had them "threaded" when I was in DC this Spring and GOD did that hurt! I guess furry eyebrows are best for this brunette. Cheap and pain free!
