“OUR FAVORITES” – Brows
Your eyebrows create a “frame” for the face and can also make your eyes appear more prominent. It’s important to remember to groom unruly brows…early and often. Have you seen the difference groomed brows have made for “Ugly Betty?” Seriously though, a simple “pluck” here and there can save the need for an emergency trip to the salon. When it comes to color, your brows should be a couple of shades darker than your hair color as too dark of a color can be aging. Using the products and tools below will help shape your brows into the gorgeous arches that will highlight your face beautifully.
