Bree | What a difference a brow makes

Hello! Thanks for stopping by.
 This is Bree and she had a family photo shoot that she wanted a mini makeover for. Bree has trouble with her brows not growing towards the center, well that's nothing a little Anastasia Brow Wiz can't fix. 


totally gorgeous already


As you can see, eyebrows can change the entire look of someones face. Bree was brave enough to let me make this drastic change. Eyebrows are one of the hardest things for clients to give up control on because it is so face changing. But now she is converted to a fuller and more proportioned brow and these are some of the tips I gave her to duplicate it at home:

When drawing in brows, draw an imaginary line from your tear duct up, this is where your brow should start. Use a very light hand and softly draw short lines upwards, using a "flicking"motion. This will simulate the appearance of small hairs. Be soft with it and take your time, its a lot harder to take pencil off than to put pencil on. 
If you feel more comfortable, buy a brow stencil and use an eye shadow on an angled brush to fill your brows in, it gives a softer look. Then work your way up to drawing them in freehand.

side note, her eyes are insane right? Not fair.

A couple of random facts about the makeup:
Lips: MAC Ruby Woo
Eyelashes: Red Cherry #43

So this is Mari. She's not only stunning but also my best friend in the whole world. She had a special date and wanted to look a little glamorous...but not unlike herself. She gave me freedom to do what I wanted to this is what I came up with.




Avon Ideal Flawless foundation in Medium Beige with  Sigma Flat Top Kabuki Brush (must have)
MAC Pro Longwear concealer
Benefit Hula bronzer
BH Cosmetics blush palette
Makeup Forever HD Powder to set everything

smashbox full exposure palette this palette is great because it can be used with almost any skin tone and it comes with an instruction guide on how to apply eye makeup to any eye shape. They even provided a youtube video on how to determine what your eye shape is.
I used M2 and M3 in the crease to add some depth. Then went in with M1  in the outer third of Mari's eye for more drama. For the lid I used a mixture of S2 and S3 and for the brow bone I used S3. Blend blend blend. 

For the waterline I used Jordana's 12 hr eye shadow pencil in Continuous Almond.  This opens up the eye and makes it look a bit bigger.

discontinued Avon lipstck :( 
...but a fun and affordable substitute is Maybelline Brazen Berry, if the color is too intense for you add a pink gloss over the top to tone it down. 

She's beautiful and I love her!
