Bleaching your eyebrows lighter can compliment even dark hair.
Bleaching can compliment any face at any age, it brings a softness to the countenance as seen on celebrities like Madonna, Tyra Banks, Queen Latifa, Iman, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, and so many others.
When Fashion Fair Cosmetics contracted us to update their image, we decided on stripping them of their old look and stereotypes and bring relevance to their look.
We declined the eyeliner, the mascara, the lip liner, the contouring and bleached the models eyebrows, giving them a fresh new image that could compete with the high end brands.
For Fashion Fair Cosmetics, we bleached the eyebrows to create a modern and youthful look on model Zen
When posing the suggestion to those with thick #eyebrows to consider a good grooming or having a clean up, their first response is usually one of horror, skepticism and fear at the thought of turning their luxe frames in to #tadpoles. Convincing them that a good #shape would elevate their countenance even that much more can be a herculean task.
Save the plucking for the chickens — lush brows are back in a big way. While full, thick arches are a mainstay and not a fad, it can be hard to join in on the movement if you’ve gotten too neurotic with removing stray hairs in the past. We gathered three experts to help you figure out how to fake the fullness — at least until your actual brows return to their luster! Read on to discover more.
Find a Brow Muse, A picture is worth a thousand words, especially when it comes Find Someone You Trust “Unfortunately, some eyebrow areas may never grow back due to dead hair follicles,” explains celebrity makeup artist and eyebrow specialist, Vanessa Evelyn of Petra Alexandra, Inc. “Look for a specialist who can work with your present shape and recreate a brow that complements your individual face shape. Fill in sparse brows with a pencil using light, feather-like strokes to mimic the appearance of hair. I personally tend to stay away from powders because they can register as artificial-looking.”
BROW THREADING and EVERYTHING ELSE about EYEBROWS in NYC –
A Petra Alexandra, Inc. Review
EVENTS & EDUCATION APRIL 1, 2015
That’s where I was headed when I first stepped into Miss Evelyn’s “ALL ABOUT EYES” class.
It went like this: For a long time, I waited to delve deeper into the art of brows but for some reason, I could not find someone who focused on the type of brow I admired in magazines.
Miss Evelyn and I met for the first time at The Makeup Show 2014. We had a short chat at the Crown brush booth and after that conversation, it was solidified in my mind, that I would be taking her class. I’m a big believer in education, as if forces you to look at your work with a new eye. To me, building a career is like building a house – its better to lay your bricks on a solid foundation. Taking time to become better at what I do is my desire. After all, it takes 6 months to build a Rolls Royce and 13 hours to build a Toyota.
Miss Evelyn, the founder of Petra Alexandra, Inc. is very well known for her brow perfection. Don’t believe me? Just watch! Her work has graced both celebrities and the pages of countless magazines. The class was intricately dissected into understandable parts. Miss Evelyn first touched on tools – then followed by an evaluation of own brow arsenal (ouch!) We followed up by learning about bleaching, threading, and brow shape correction. It was a pleasure learning from her as she went in a pace that was just suited for me and encouraged me all the way
Two days later, I decided to take the plunge and get my own brows bleached. It took awhile because my brow hairs are very thick. I got so scared at first because it turned a weird orange color. *straight face* but guess what…
I ENDED UP LOVING IT!
Sitting on the other side of the chair, I felt how it would feel for a client who would get their makeup done or their brows threaded. It was a true boost of confidence. (I was feeling myself- lol) and that is why I love my career and truly enjoyed the “ALL ABOUT EYES” class at Petra Alexandra, Inc. with Miss Evelyn herself.
Looking forward to sharing my progress with you all!
