Eyebrow Love

When grooming your eyebrows on your own, its best to pluck them.  Here are a few tips on plucking your eyebrows.

1) Tweeze brows with a nice slanted tip tweezer
2) To make tweezing less painful, try plucking hairs after a hot shower or facial steam
3) Always pluck brow hairs in the direction of hair growth
4) Keep your brows in place by using a brow wax or clear mascara

Beauty Tip ~ Makeup

If you want to wear blush, but don't want to wear blush (?), try wearing a little pressed powder instead.  Use a pressed powder thats a couple of shades darker than your natural complexion and apply it where you would apply blush.

Beauty Tip ~ Hair

With fine hair, it is not recommended that multiple chemical services (relaxers, color treatments, etc) are done on the same day.  This may cause hair breakage and/or hair loss, as well as lack of body.  Its best to wait at least 2 weeks after applying the first chemical treatment.
