Star Brow: Cara Delivingne

Cara DelivingneVogue rates her #17 of 50 top models. Cara Delivingne is also featured on the Style and Culture Facebook page (worth looking at).

Love her long, flat, close to the eye, brow-look. Want it? Use Brow Boost if you are re-growth-challenged, tint them every 3 weeks, and use Brow Gel (both by Billion Dollar Brows) to get the fly-away, natural style.

See you at the spa!

Star Brow of the Week – Lily Collins

 

Actress Lily Jane Collins is 23, was born in Guildford, England, and is the daughter of  musician Phil Collins. I recently saw her in Mirror Mirror with Julia Roberts (which I’d give three  stars).

Lily’s brows, as seen in the movie, were a real distraction for me. I can’t imagine why they’d draw so much attention to one feature and create such a big, dark, bold brow with the natural, youthful makeup she wore.

Oh well, her brows are simply gorgeous here with the perfect makeup and dress. Notice how the head (fan) of the brow is more mid-line than the traditional brow placement above the tear duct? Nice and full, well shaped, but not overdone.

See you at the spa!

Star Brow – Vanessa Hudgen

Star Brow of the Week is Vanessa Hudgen, and not just because she wears Heather Gardner ALL the time!

Her eyebrows are perfection. Notice the fan at the head of the brow? It’s soft, irregular, and gauzy. The color, just a hint lighter than her hair. The arch a long, gradual taper.

This look is dreamy, natural, and very boho-chic.

Love to see you at the spa Vanessa!

 

Adele – Star Brow of the Week

Adele is amazing! I just burned a new CD for the spa that features her. Have you heard her song  Someone Like You? Taylor Swift beat her out for Artist of the Year at the AMA…really?

But she, and not Taylor, is the Star Brow of the Week. 🙂 I love her creamy skin, her facial contouring makeup looks really pretty, too.

Although her brows are not perfect – a bit short and same width-y – they are pretty in auburn, and her eyes dazzle.

How would I transform her brows?

1. I would have her use Brow Boost to grow them in.

2. She needs more length at the head and tail to support her huge eyes.

3. More fullness in the brow itself would work better for her.

4. Although I like the contouring above the eye crease, it doesn’t quite make up for the fact that her arch is too high. I’d work that down over time.

5. The brow on the right is higher so as we are lowering both brows we’d be more aggressive with to-line waxing/tweezing that one.

6. When the head of the brow (by the nose)  grows in I’d make it a little gauzy and messy so it makes the brow look more bohemian/earthy and less “perfect”.

You go, Adele Laurie Blue Adkins!  And if you’re reading this Adele, I’d love to see you, call me. 805-722-8222

Star Brows of the Week – Agyness Deyn

British supermodel Agyness Deyn is my pick for Star Brows of the Week.  Obviously I like bleached hair and dark brows.  Agyness, born Laura Hollins, is very unmodel-y and a little rebel-looking. The look feels liberated, with a sense of the “healthy masculine.”

My husband gave me a card for our 33rd anniversary the other day that read, “From the one who wears the pants in the family, to the one who tells him which ones to wear.” 😀

Ms. Deyn’s brows are very flat, the arch is way outside the rim of the iris, and the thickness is the same throughout the body of the brow.  So what? Her brows are much darker than her hair, as well, so she appears to be breaking all the rules, right?

Here’s the deal: You cannot design everyone’s brows with a cookie-cutter method. That’s why when people ask me about “Threading,” I tell them that more important than how you remove the hair is the designer’s skill at interpreting the best look for you.

Our Star Brows feature this week has got a distinctive look that works. She has taken into consideration her “brand” as a model. She’s not just trying to have “the perfect brows.” Look at all the light around her eyes (probably a white pencil), the pale lip, the cheek contouring, and the way her hair draws attention to the center of her face.

See you at the spa!

Star Brow of the Week

I adore fashion designer Christian Cota’s collection, but what the heck is up with his eyebrows? Yes, it’s true the eyebrows are not twins, the are sisters, as I like to say – or in Christian’s case, brothers!

He has beautiful eyes and lips, and even though I don’t see men except by referral – I would see him.

Not that countless makeup artists haven’t probably told him he needed help – he may have said what a recent client of mine said, “My brows are me.” No! Your brows aren’t you – they can change, just like your hair, clothing and makeup.

He has beautiful eyes and lips, and even though I don’t see men except by referral, I would see him – as an act of mercy, lol.

Star Brow of the Week

For Star Brow of the Week I chose Katy Perry, she is very “Old Hollywood” here, and it is stunning.

What do I love about her look?

1. Beautiful brows are really only part of the picture, you can see that in this photo – the hair, the foundation, the lips, and her beauty mark – all help show off perfect brows.

I have a $24 service called Express Brow Design  that is supposed to be 10 minutes long, but in order to send perfect brows out the door, I need to fix up the rest, which can take a little (sometimes a lot) longer.

2. The arch is really stretched out here – it helps accomadate her big eyes, high cheek bones and long jaw.

3. The color and density of the brow shape are strong, which works well with the rich colored lip and blue-black hair.

4. There is perfect placement of the anatomy of the brow.

5. Her complexion and dress are very soft and peachy – nice contrast. Ten!

Star Brow of the Week

For my first winner of Star Brow of the Week I choose the inimitable Audrey Hepburn. The camera loved her. I saw a documentary on her life last night, and she was every bit as beautiful on the inside. Her acting was wonderful, but her humanitarian efforts were most remarkable.

What do I love about her eyebrows?

1. The “head” of the brow draws the viewer’s eye gracefully down her nose, to her mouth and back up to her eyes. I call this the Aesthetic Triangle, the communication hub of the face. This is why I preach, “keep the brow on the “nose side” of the tear duct”.  If it falls short, it will draw the viewer’s eye to the dreaded under-eye circles. 🙁

2. Notice how the arch is located above the outside edge of the iris?

3. And my favorite part – see how the “tail” of the brow swoops up slightly? Lovely. It mimics the curve of her lips.
