How to Get the Perfect Brow EVERYTIME



You must NEVER underestimate the power of the eyebrow.-Jack Black


Picture yourself with the eyebrows of Cruella De Vil.... now. picture yourself with the brows of  Cara Delevingne.  I’m pretty confident you looked a lot more glamorous with Cara's eyebrows.

 A well defined brow  will increase your level of attractiveness faster than any "quick" beauty fix out there. 

Full defined brows instantly create the look of a younger and   more polished you. But, Ohhhhh.... the frustration of achieving the perfect brow. 



We’ve all been there. We Try to create the “perfect brow” and instead we create an unrealistic arch that looks like that of  Ronald McDonald. 

                                    BROWRAGEOUS!

We then tend to go into a  brow frenzy.  We head for the beauty ammo.  We grab pencils, waxes, gels, powders,  tweezers and sealants. Some of us end up so brow crazy, we’ll tweeze all of our eyebrows off until we look like a Sphynx, NOW the only option for new brows is to head to the tattoo parlor. 

This may work for a few people, but usually tattoos aren’t a good idea. As the face ages, brows tend to take on a different shape.  Tattooed brows stop you from filling in the natural shape of your brow leaving you with an unnatural look.


What can you do to stop the brow mania???  



Well, first-you need to find YOUR perfect brow shape and arch.  Grab a pencil, pen or anything straight. (So Richard Simmons is obviously not an option)




Take your chosen object and place it  against the outermost part of your nose and the inside corner of your eye.  This is where you eyebrow should start.

Next, place it at outer edge of your iris.  This is where your arch should start, and finally, the brow should end at the outer nose  on the outer corner of the eye.   Mark all of these areas, place a stencil over the areas you marked.  I recommend Anastasia Beverly Hills Stencils for a perfect arch every time!


Finally, use a tinted brow gel or a waterproof pencil and fill in the brows.



    I do recommend matching your hair color or going  a shade lighter than the color of your hair.  

After they are shaped and you have filled in your color, remove the stencil, and pluck or trim any strays that are not in your perfect brow and Voila!  How Browliciously stunning you now are.

Lashes are NOT created equal.

The question,  "What is the best mascara?"  CAN NOT  be answered  without a little trial and error, because no one has an identical lash twin. 

 We're all looking for the perfect mascara, but what one considers perfect may be a nightmare for another. Imagine if a  doctor prescribed the same medication  for two very different disorders. It wouldn't be pretty, but don't fret, there is a "Lashscription"  for   short, long,  straight, curled, bald and/or brittle lashes and everything in between.  




                                   Not all lashes are created equal





 🔺If you already have long, dark, lashes,  this blog is not for you. Just curl, tint, and I hope you get acne. (I kid, I kid, I'm jealous, that's all ) 🔻


There are four types of lashes that mascaras tend to focus on- thin, sparse, short, and, straight.  You can have a mixture of these and YOU ARE ALLOWED to use more than one mascara- but first, decide what your biggest concern is and start there. 

Lets start with straight lashes lacking a curling effect- most of the time,  a good curl of the lash can make ALL lashes appear longer, thicker, and bigger. You don't have to get picky when it comes to eyelash curlers, but the right curling technique is important-You should lift your head upwards about 2 inches, place the curler close to the lash line and squeeze for 3 to 5 seconds.Repeat this on the middle lashes, and top of the lashes.

You're F****ing Perfect.... Just the way you are ;p



Who isn't a huge fan of the rebellious beauty Pink!? She's always bringing us fresh beats, new looks and very powerful messages about the real meaning of beauty.   We ran across Pink's oldie, but goodie songs/videos "Stupid Girls"  and  "F&^*ing Perfect. We love the strong message that beauty IS power but only if it's accompanied by brains and a strong sense of who you are. 





In the age of photoshop and filters, it's no wonder,  men and woman, of all ages, feel "less than perfect." They feel misunderstood because they don't agree with the "status quo" or their self-image doesn't mold into the media's definition of  "perfect."
