One of the things I have always struggled with when it comes to beauty is styling my eyebrows. I have tried grooming them on my own, but can’t seem to perfect it like how the professionals do. I have tried many companies out and had my brows tweezed, waxed and threaded, all doing a good job but never having a Wow Factor. Until………..
I had heard from quite a few people about an eyebrow stylist in Vancouver, so I thought I would check her out. I went to see Alisha Noon at Beauty Mark and honestly she has true talent at what she does. I can honestly say that I have never had my eyebrows look so good. After styling, Alisha finished my brows off with Paula Dorf 2+1 brow color in “brunette” and the brow gel. The line also has “blonde” which is great to use on any hair color.
I knew that I must not be the only one out there that has struggled to have the perfect brow. With this being said I thought I would take the opportunity to pick her brain and find out some key points when styling your brows . Here is the Q&A~
BB411~What is the biggest mistake that people do when styling their brows?
AN~ Oh there are so many! But it goes without saying, OVERTWEEZING! A lot of people think that thinner brows open your eyes up therefore making you look younger, but that is not the case…in fact, brows that are too thin for your face shape actually make you look OLDER and draw the focus AWAY from your beautiful eyes and onto your poor overtweezed brows
BB411~Advice for someone who is growing out their brows?
AN~ That would be to PUT THE TWEEZERS DOWN…HIDE THEM~FREEZE THEM! And stay strong! Growing out your brows can be a painstakingly unbearable task but the hardest part is just to get through the first 2-3 weeks and after that, it just doesn’t seem so bad. A good idea is to book a date with a professional a few weeks after you start the grow out process and then you have a goal, something to look forward to. That way every time you have a moment of weakness where you feel like you might break the tweezers out of the cup of water you froze them in, you know that it will all be better soon because you’ve got a plan…and an appointment that guarantees you won’t look like Oscar the Grouch forever
BB411~ What are the key items for beautifying your brows at home?
AN~ A great pair of slant tweezers (I recommend Tweezerman or Rubis), a spooly brush or dry mascara wand to comb your brows, and a standup mirror that you can sit close to with really good lighting, preferably daylight…and stay away from magnifying mirrors! They are breeders of overtweezer achievers!!
BB411~ Which celebrity has the best brows?
AN~ Oh my goodness, there are so many it’s tough to choose. But to name a few off the top of my head, Ashley Judd, Kate Winslet, and Jennifer Lopez.
BB411~ Top 3 items in your makeup bag that you can’t live without?
AN~ Just 3?? YSL Touche Éclat, Shu Uemura eyelash curler, and a tie for Paula Dorf Clear Brow Gel, Bobbi Brown “Peony” blush, and Q-tips
BB411~ What does beauty mean to you?
AN~ Being true to who you are and letting your light shine from the inside out…and good brows and a little lip gloss never hurt 😉
