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!

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!

LaVaque Professional Artist

Check this out! I’m featured as an Eyebrow Design Professional in the company of some of the best designers and Makeup Artists in the country:

Linda Ruberto is the owner of Star Brows, a solo spa on California’s Central Coast. She has been in practice since 1995. Linda has transformed the look of thousands of clients with her signature eyebrow design approach and has employed and mentored hundreds of beauty professionals.

She has published articles in some of the skincare industry’s premier magazines, and writes a beauty and wellness blog at Starbrows.com.

Her professional credentials include a Certified Massage Practitioner certification from the California Massage Therapy Council and a California State Licensed Esthetician credential. Linda is also a member of Associated Skin Care Professionals and Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals.

Linda’s Philosophy:

I operate from the notion that every woman wants to be treated like a star. Every service I do includes a touch of spa luxury, and every client is a VIP.

The term Beauty Therapist best describes my professional role. Like my mentor, the fabulous late David Starr, I really need to feel and know the heart of each individual woman to bring out her beauty and create the perfect look and experience just for her.

My premier offerings, Couture Eyebrow Design and Heather Gardner jewelry, reflect my belief in luxury, haute couture, and personalized service. Once a woman’s brows are perfect, her makeup is just right, and she’s totally relaxed, slipping on a gorgeous pair of earrings or the perfect necklace helps bring out each woman’s unique beauty.

I’ve made it my personal mission to eradicate the term Anti-Aging from the industry at large. The age-biased beauty propaganda our culture espouses and directs toward women through the media needs to change. Aging is inevitable, aging women are spectacular, and really, isn’t Healthy Aging the desired outcome for us all?

“Many thanks to Juliana and Barry, LaVaque Professional’s owners, for honoring industry artists! I appreciate their receptiveness to those of us who earn our living with their fabulous tools and products. What genius to come up with tweezers that are friendly to the repetitive use issues facing industry professionals.” –Linda Ruberto

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!

 

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

What are Rewards?

If you’re new to Star Brows, you may not know about The Monthly 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, 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 featured product: Pick 3 BDB Products with FREE Makeup Bag ($8 value). Depending on which products you choose, you’ll get at least $9 in rewards, and up to $12.

See you at the spa!
