All about the brows

If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the brows are like the window decoration. Two-time Emmy-nominated celebrity makeup artist Dee Dee Marcelli says, “I don’t think women realize how important brows are. They frame your eyes like a picture frame."

Brows with strong definition are a must

Marcelli maintains that if you don’t have great brows with really strong definition, you’re not doing yourself justice. Photography makeup artist and eyebrow specialist Elke Von Freudenberg agrees. Her expertise as a licensed esthetician in both California and New York in shaping eyebrows for celebrities and models has made her a highly sought-after eyebrow expert.

Your brows tell your story without any words

"Eyebrows do much more than frame the eyes. They also tell others around you a story -- your story. Are you confident? Tired? Sad? Powerful? Once women have had their eyebrows done terribly wrong do they realize the importance of eyebrows and what they tell others about you. The goal of perfect eyebrows is to have people notice your eyes and you, not your eyebrows," says Von Freudenberg.

Get a Per-fektly easy brow routine

Tending to unruly brows could take up precious time in your already stressed schedule. Richard Anderson, Founder and President of Per-fekt Beauty, says that because of today's high performance and personally demanding world, women simply don't have the time to invest in a lengthy beauty ritual. "With never-a-spare-moment schedules, women need simple and dependable beauty products that can multi-task as gracefully as they do," says Anderson.

That's why he created Per-fekt Brow Perfection Gel, a silky smooth color gel that enhances the appearance of the brows and offers an easy alternative to traditional brow pencils, powders, sealants and waxes. It goes on just like mascara to tame brows without flaking or fading, while at the same time moisturizing with plant-based ingredients.

Variety is the spice of life

So, which is best, thick or thin brows? Marcelli explains that “everyone should have eyebrows that go with their face and that can vary from thin to thick and from face to face.”

I like the part that states it's good to switch it up. I always am changing my hair color and style, so why not my eyebrows? The best thing you can do is experiment until you find something that really works for you. Thanks for the article!

Great article! I agree that your eyebrows should bring out your face and make your eyes stand out. It doesn't matter if they're thick or thin, it just has to look right on your face.
