Bomb Brows

Eyebrows are like the windows to your face, and if you don't have the right curtains, their just plain old windows.

So, here are a few simple steps to follow to achieve your best brows!

Take a pencil & hold it straight up to the side of your nose, wherever it hits, this is where your eyebrows should begin.

...then, gently move the pencil to the middle of your pupil, thats where your arch should be.

...After you've found your beginning & arch, time to find the end!

Move the pencil to the outer corner of your eye, that's where your eyebrow ends!!

OK!! Now that we've covered the basics of your eyebrows, let's get to the real work!


Always clean the area you'll be working on with a Q-TIP soaked in toner. This will keep you from breaking out in that area and getting bacteria into your pores.

After you've cleaned the area, TRIM THAT BUSH!!! Take an eyebrow brush and comb upwards, trim the extra hairs that are sticking out. Make sure not to go crazy and cut too much!!


Start under the beginning of your eyebrows (the side closest to your nose) and work outwards. Pluck each hair one by one.

* When dying your hair, remember to also dye your eyebrows!
* In case you have some gaps, fill it in with color! Just don't
be too heavy, put just enough to fill in the gap.

Here's an example of Angie's Perfect brows!!

Eyebrows are meant to FRAME your face...if they look like've gone too far!!

Embrace your imperfections!

HAPPPPPPPPPY NEW YEAR!!! New year, new you! Every single year, we all make that one resolution that always seems to die out a few months into the year, make this year different. As for us... we're gonna try something different this year! We're gonna start scheduling our weeks, and writing down our priorities so we can actually get something done. One main reason people don't reach their goals is because their not organized. ORGANIZATION IS KEY! ..So is preparing ahead of time. When you wake up and your day is planned for you, there are no excuses to forget. It's easier to forget when you say you'll remember something, we know you've all been there!!! So we encourage you all to make weekly schedules and put it where you can see it at all times, because if you don't do whats on the list, it won't disappear into the air, it'll still be on that paper, staring at you!! Make this year different and reach your goals!!

Put an inspirational quote, picture or anything that inspires you, next to your bedside so it'll kick your ass out of bed & get you going! You'll be surprised at how much you can get done.

And this year, instead of trying to change your flaws, embrace them. No one can rock your look like you can!! Try to play up your unique style of beauty, but warning: DON'T OVERDUE IT! Whether you have, nice skin, high cheekbones, luscious lips, big eyes, perfect eyebrows, or whatever it maybe, trying playing it up.

The order we usually do make-up is:
#1: Foundation
#2: Concealer
#3: Eyeshadow
#4: Eyeliner
#5: Mascara
#6: Powder
#7: Blush
#8: Lipstick (or Lip gloss)

That's our typical make-up routine, but there are NO RULES WHEN IT COMES TO MAKE-UP!!! Make-up is an art, so express yourself!!
