What do you think about eyebrows? Are they important to you?

If you think they are important than read on. Now that I specialize in eyebrow shaping (as well as makeup) I can see how important eyebrows are to the human face. I have seen my fair share of people without eyebrows whether it was of their own choice or because of some health reason. I have found that they are the frame to your face. They give expression to your face (not that other parts don’t) but they help with surprise and many facial expressions and when they look groomed they give your face that groomed clean look.

I have seen bushy eyebrows, barely there eyebrows and the perfect eyebrow. There are a few ways of keeping your brows from (as my husband and i put it) Attacking your face. There is waxing, threading and tweezing. I specialize in tweezing. Waxing isn,t good for your skin, and threading OMG it kills and makes you tear. i like tweezing coz it pulls out the hairs that you need and nothing extra. Personally i think i am pretty gentle and have been told i am but that is for you to decide. Trimming the brows is another part of the Shaping process and really cleans the brows up.

Duane Reade just opened what they call a Look Boutique which is like a mini sephora but nicer. We do skin analysis there for free – we can tell you if your skin is dehydrated by our hydrometer. We also have a 8x zoom machine which you can see your skin really close up and see everything from dehydration to sun damage – its really worth coming down to check it out. eyebrow shaping is also done there and no appointment is necessary – walk ins are welcome. Makeup consultations are a fun and informative way to get to know how to do your makeup either for everyday or for a special occassion and are free.

Hopefully we will see you there soon. Check us out on 8th Ave between w16th and w17th Aves in Chelsea.

mineralized eye shadowA sheer, pearled, mineralized powder Eye Shadow with two shades baked together in one pan. Superfine, lightweight: provides a softly tinted, reflective shimmer on the skin with a delicate sense of dimension. Subtly builds colour and shine. Can be worn on face, eyes or body.

It comes in four colors:
Mineralize black w/ gold bronze pearl (Frost)
Mineralize black w/ pinkish purple pearl (Frost)
Mineralize black w/ silver pearl (Frost)
Mineralize black with blue pearl (Frost)

I bought it in the black with the blue pearl. It is a gorgeous color and can be used either wet or dry and as a liner as well as an eyeshadow.
The only problem with it is that it was a limited edition and is not sold anymore! I went to macy’s to go buy it and the woman said that there wasnt anymore, but i went back later and the woman had it. I now regret not buying it in all colors!!

A friend of mine gave me a tester of this and this morning i finally tried it!! It is really really good and gives a great cover and feels as light as a feather (actually lighter). i just brushed it on and saw the flawless effect one wants, immediately!

I would def recommend this to everyone out there!!
