Billion Dollar Brows – Product Feature – September

bdb_header

As you know, we love bdb at Star Brows, this “brows only” company was the inspiration for Star Brows when we first moved to Cali!

During September all Billion Dollar Brows’ products will be on double Rewards with 20% back to YOU in service.

Choose from:

Brow Boost: I use this at least 4 times a week, and it really works to keep the brows as thick and full as possible.

Brow Gel: Make-up the perfect brow and then set it so it stays all day! I wouldn’t go without it it – ever.

Universal Brow Pencil: I can use this color for almost all the brows I do. It has a tone that works with almost all hair colors.

These days I also carry Youngblood’s Brow Pencils (they’re new), but before that UBP was it!

Brow Brush: A brow brush is mandatory for applying  Brow Powder and the spoolie on the other end is used for pencil too.

Brow Powder: Great colors, especially Taupe. Also comes in Blond, Brown, and Raven (a nice ashy-dark color).

See you at the spa!

Brow Boost – New & Improved: June Product Feature 2013

brow boost

Kelli JuneHi! It’s Kelli, bringing you this month’s Product Feature.

At Star Brows we’re all about amazing eyebrow shape and design and most of us, including me, are doing what we can to get them.  I’ve been using Billion Dollar Brows’ Brow Boost for the last six months to help re-grow my poor hacked-off brows and with this product’s help (and the brow magic that comes from the Brow Boss, Linda), my eyebrows are becoming what I’ve always wanted. Now a reformulation of this product boosts brow growth three times more than before!

This new and improved formula will help you get thicker, fuller brows and can be applied to your lashes too. Buy two (one for lashes and one for brows) while they’re our Monthly Feature!

The deep-conditioning treatment is designed to help strengthen and condition thin, over-tweezed brows and weak lashes. It contains three times the amount of Laminaria Digitata and Pelvetia Canaliculata Extracts, two types of seaweed found off the coast of Brittany, France that are clinically proven to help strengthen weakened hair follicles.

In honor of this new product release, we are offering Double Reward points which you can redeem for Enhancements! I don’t know about you, but I am very excited to try this out. 🙂

 

See you at the spa!

Brow B.F.F. Kit January Product Feature 2012

This darling Makeup Bag is yours FREE in January when you purchase any three Billion Dollar Brows Products! And, when you can double your Rewards points, you’re really getting a great deal.

Brow Boost is my biggest seller, I use it, and it really works to grow stubborn brows. It also helps you keep the brows you have! $20

Brow Duo Highlighter is awesome to carry in your purse (in this little bag!). I use it for touch-ups with the concealer end throughout the day. Using the highlighter end can transform your makeup quickly from day to evening: Apply to the inner corners of your eyes, the “cupid’s bow” of your lip, the high-point of your brow arch, or make your eyes  look bigger and clearer by putting highlighter on the tear-line. This big, fat,  2 in 1 pencil contains jojoba seed oil so it’s good for your skin too. $18

The Brow Gel is a must-have for setting perfect brows as well as holding the color you’ve applied, and the chamomile flower extract conditions. $15

Since Trucco went out of business, taking with it my beloved Hi-Brow Trio (which, by the way, if you bought it, you’ll be glad you did because now it’s on ebay for $133!) I’ve had to find eyebrow colors I like as well to replace it. And I’d say BDB Brow Powder in Blond, Taupe, Light Brown and Raven (new), do a great job. Using two or three of these versatile colors make a great shadow collection as well: Use Blond as your all-over base, Light Brown to begin to contour (I’ll teach you to do this next time your in), and finish with Taupe, or for more drama – Raven. $16

The Universal Brow Pencil is pretty versatile because it matches most eyebrow colors. Pencils are great for those with sparse brows. I like to use pencil first to define and make my Powder “stick”. $15

And finally the Brow Brush, a two-in-one tool with an angle brush for applying brow powder on one end and a spoolie on the other for softening the effect. You don’t know how much flaking I see on the skin under the average brow. Use the spoolie to soften and provide a bit of exfoliation after pencil, powder, and even gel. $15

New Years Eve Makeup 2012!

Happy New Year’s Eve party preparations to all of you! We’ll be ringing in the New Year at A Twilight Masquerade at my dad’s place: Robert Hall Winery.

I want to look my best, and I want you to look your best, too – even if you’re not planning to go out for NYE! So, here are ten steps to flawless looking makeup:

1. Healthy Skin is the most important start to great makeup, and while you can’t change your skin in 24 hours, you can do the following:

  • Drink a ton of water the day of and the proceeding days. If you’ll be drinking, this is mandatory.
  • Eat healthy and regular meals the day of the bash.
  • Get plenty of rest the night before.

2. Cleanse A proper morning cleanse and evening cleanse are vital. The correct cleanser for your skin type is probably the most important decision you’ll make toward having the best skin possible.

3. Exfoliate – A few days before the big night, start using masks, peels, and scrubs. The Cleansing Oil is also an excellent way to polish, exfoliate, and brighten your skin: Do a 20-minute massage with it instead of the normal quick cleanse. (Did you know the Cleansing Oil takes off makeup really well? Buh-bye, makeup dissolver.)

Of course, hopefully you have consulted a skincare professional about which products are best for your skin. If you trust your exfoliant not to cause a breakout or irritate your skin, using one even the night before will help your skin look radiant.

My picks: Gyco-A GelCrystal C Serum and Peeling Cream.

4. Moisturize – Those of you who read my blog regularly know that when you discipline the skin, you also need to use plenty of TLC. Moisturize the entire face, neck, and décolleté, as well as the eye area. Even oily and acne-prone skin types need moisturizer. Your makeup will look so much better if your skin is well-hydrated.

My picks: Hy-DrateVitamin CreamChamomileEye Plus Cream, Lipo-Gen.

5. Prime – Every great artist knows that preparing the canvas is key. Getting the skin ready for the application of cosmetics makes the finished “look” so much better. Absorb Oil Control is perfect for oily and acne-prone skin: It is an oil controller and hydrator in one. Mineral Primer will fill in the fine lines and imperfections and make your foundation last. Use Concealer around the eye area or any other area where skin color is irregular.

6. Apply Foundation – Youngblood Mineral Makeup is my favorite makeup base. Use a small brush for extra coverage in the areas that need it. Use a darker color to contour, like the hollows of your cheeks or the sides of your nose. Contour the eyes with shades of brown, especially if you have droopy lids. (Remember: dark recedes, light brings forward.) Highlighter under the brow bone accentuates the arch. I carry BDB Duo Concealer: it’s a pencil with concealer on one end and highlighter on the other – another “twofer”!

7. Add Color – Glitter (small particles, used sparingly) is a hot look for NYE. Aging skin doesn’t do well with glitter, though. I personally like the Youngblood Mineral Makeup in the color Sunglow for sparkle and pop. Blush should be applied to the apple of the cheek only if you have a very thin and long face, so you can create width. If your face is round, apply blush on the cheek starting at the edge of the iris and swooping up to the temples and into the hairline.

Shadow color can be added next. Remember: if you are playing up the eyes, go easy on the lips, and vice versa. Youngblood Mineral Eyeshadow is amazing – long-lasting and smudge-proof.

Eyeliner (MUA Michelle Phan gives some options), is probably the biggest statement in makeup. Youngblood Pencils with Rhus Succedanea Fruit Wax and Coco- Glycerides is so easy to use. If your lids are crepey/droopy you may not be able to rock the winged effect on the upper lid but try this:

Stretch the edge of the eye so the skin is taught (be careful not to pull too tight, it can damage the delicate eye area), then line the lower lid very close to the lashes and wing it up and out!

8. Lashes – Lash Extensions in a tube! Blackout Mineral Mascara by Youngblood is great.  It has little fibers, and is thickening and lengthening.  Lash Primer, underwear for the lashes. 🙂 is also excellent for extra volume and conditioning. For those of us who need to curl our lashes, I like the MAC curler best.

9. Lips – I recommend a lip pencil and plumping colored gloss – both by Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. You’ll get rich, highly pigmented color with the pencil and hydration with the gloss.

10. Eyebrows – Getting the right shape requires professional help – at least to get you started and at best for maintenance. You’re not stuck with the eyebrows you have: You can create the perfect brows at home.  How? If you have thinning brows, start using Brow Boost right away. All the Billion Dollar Brows products rock! Cosmetics for creating the perfect eyebrows – like pencils, powders, and brow-setting gel – will transform blah brows into bomb brows!

Have a great time, and Happy New Year to you all!

See you at the spa!

Brow Boost – July Product Feature 2011

Over-plucked, thinning, or misshapen eyebrows? Or do you just want to keep the great brows you have?

This month’s product feature is Brow Boost for brows and lashes! Check this out:  Laura Spencer dishes about Billion Dollar Brows’ Brow Boost with Rachael Ray on YouTube.

This deep conditioning treatment is designed to help strengthen and thicken brows and lashes in 30 days – naturally.

Brow Boost is dermatologist tested, prostaglandin free, and safe for all skin types. I love it’s affordable, reasonable price too – $20.

I was recently published in the national magazine Skin Deep by Associated Skincare Professionals! The piece is in the July issue on page 24. I wrote an article called: Succeed Big By Thinking Small “How to develop your market niche.” It’s about small business marketing and included examples of a few of my favorite niche companies. Billion Dollar Brows by Natalie and Bob Plain was one of the stories I spotlighted. They in turn, gave me a discount on product – which I extend to you, by way of Star Brows’ Rewards program. 🙂

Here is the Facts about Brow Boost. Check out the full line of Billion Dollar Brows products at Star Brows!

If you’re new to Star Brows, you may not know about The Product Feature or Rewards yet. To put it simply, 10% of all your product purchases, all the time, go toward free Service Enhancements, like Raindrop Therapy, Deep Muscle Work, Lash Tint, Chemical Peels, or Star Massage.

When a product is the Monthly Feature, however, you’ll get 20% back in Rewards! This month’s feature, Brow Boost, is $20. That means $4 toward a service Enhancement!

See you soon at the new spa!

 

New Years Eve Makeup 2011!

Unfortunately my “pre-bash massage” was just cancelled – dang 🙁 – so I’m writing an NYE makeup post instead!

Happy New Year’s party preparations to all of you! I’m getting ready for The Golden Era event at my father’s winery. I want to look my best, and I want you to look your best too – even if you’re not planning to go out for NYE! Here are eight steps to a flawless look:

1. Exfoliate – Perfect makeup requires well-tended skin. A week to a couple of days before the big night start doing masks, peels, and scrubs. The Cleansing Oil is also an excellent way to polish, exfoliate, and brighten your skin: Do a 20-minute massage with it instead of the normal quick cleanse. (Did you know the Cleansing Oil takes off makeup really well? Buh-bye makeup dissolver.)

Of course, hopefully you have consulted a skincare professional about what products are best for your skin. If you trust your exfoliant not to cause a breakout or irritate your skin, using one even the night before will help your skin look radiant.

My picks: Gyco-A Gel, Crystal C Serum and Peeling Cream. Just so happens two of these are January’s Product Feature with Double Rewards!

2. Moisturize – Those of you who read my blog regularly know that when you discipline the skin, you also need to use plenty of TLC. Moisturize the entire face, neck, and décolleté, as well as the eye area. Even oily and acne-prone skin types need moisturizer. Your makeup will look so much better if your skin is well hydrated.

My picks: Hy-Drate, Vitamin Cream, Chamomile, Eye Plus Cream, Lipo-Gen.

3. Prime – Every great artist knows that preparing the canvas is key. Getting the skin ready for the application of cosmetics makes the finished product look so much better. Absorb Oil Control is perfect for oily and acne-prone skin: It is an oil controller and hydrator in one. Mineral Primer will fill in the fine lines and imperfections and make your foundation last. Use Concealer around the eye area.

4. Apply FoundationMineral Makeup is my favorite for your base. Use a small brush for extra coverage in the areas that need it. Use a darker color to contour, like the hollows of your cheeks or the sides of your nose. Contour the eyes with shades of brown, especially if you have droopy lids. (Remember: dark recedes, light brings forward.) Highlighter under the brow bone accentuates the arch. I carry BDB Duo Concealer: it’s a pencil with concealer on one end and highlighter on the other – another “twofer”!

5. Add Color – Glitter (small particles, used sparingly) is a hot look for NYE. Aging skin doesn’t do well with glitter though. I personally like the Youngblood Mineral Makeup in the color Sunglow for sparkle and pop. Blush should be applied to the apple of the cheek only if you have a very thin and long face, so you can create width. If your face is round, apply blush on the cheek starting at the edge of the iris and swooping up to the temples and into the hairline.

Shadow color can be added next. Remember: if you are playing up the eyes, go easy on the lips, and vice versa.

6. Lashes – Blackout Mineral Mascara by Youngblood. I always use two mascaras. I find I get the best lashes that way. Lash Primer is also excellent for extra volume and conditioning. For those of us who need to curl our lashes, I like the MAC curler best.

7. Lips Bright and bold is on trend for both NYE and spring 2011. I like recommending a lip pencil and plumping colored gloss – both by Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics.

8. Eyebrows – Getting the right shape requires professional help – at least to get you started, at best for maintenance. You’re not stuck with the eyebrows you have: You can create the perfect brows at home.  How? If you have thinning brows, start using Brow Boost right away. All the Billion Dollar Brows products rock! Cosmetics for creating the perfect eyebrows – like pencils, powders, and brow-setting gel – will transform blah brows to bomb brows!
