Easy Eyebrow Know-How

Eyebrows are hot right now...not only do they prevent actual sweat from dripping into your eyes (gross, but the actual purpose for this human feature!), they can refocus the dimensions of your whole  face.

Every generation has had an eyebrow icon, and styles cycle through in a flash.  Companies are devoting mega PR to their eyebrow defining tools...think Sigma's new brow duos, Anastasia is super brow-centric, MAC has an entire new collection called The Waterproof Brow...brows are always an important accessory!

So, you know I love watching YT videos, and so many girls follow such detailed brow rituals, it is unreal!  I would love to be able to spend that much time and effort on my brow-image every morning, but that's just not my life.  I need to look like a well-groomed beauty professional in a very short period of time.  ( I do have a bit more time now that the kiddos are on summer break--no more 6am lunch packing!)

Here is my easy brow tutorial.  It is what I do every day I'm in public.  Ha!  I vary products from time to time, but these are my tried and true methods.  Hope these tips help you look browtastic!!!




Cheers to preventing sweat from dripping into our eyes!!

Beautiful Brides

I've taken care of many brides during my career. So much goes into the planning, prep and execution of bridal hair and makeup, it can get overwhelming! I'm sure you've heard many horror stories of Bridezillas, but really, most girls are just excited to look like their best selves on the big day. 

I've been a professional stylist for over twelve years, and while I used to take care of any bride and their mother (lol) I now say 'I do' to just a few. This way we both know what to expect and how best to approach that One Big Day.

This is my sweet girl Cortney. She just got married last weekend. 

We've worked together for at least three or four years, and she is just such a nice, hard-working girl. It was funny when she told me of her engagement, I didn't want to be presumptuous in thinking I would be taking care of her for her wedding! I had a quick moment of wondering if I was good enough! It is one of the most important days in a person's life, and I am always honored to be tucked into such a personal corner of it.

It was fun "forcing" her to grow her hair out, talking about makeup ideas, and sending picture through Pinterest. At her prebridal appointment, it was like, 'Oh, here we are, awesome in a bottle!' And then on that Saturday, it was even more perfect...




Thank you, Cortney, for letting me be part of your big day!

Xoxo,
Lindsay
