Frum Fashionista’s Summer Beauty Guide (Face & Lips continued…)

Most people say that my eyes are my most striking feature. You can have beautiful eyes and muck it all up by screwing up your eyebrows. Either by letting them get overgrown or going crazy with the tweezer! 

Eyebrow maintenance is a must! IMHO, eyebrows frame the face! When done correctly, great brows make you look pulled together w/o much effort. I find many women take too much off the top.

Here’s a D-I-Y perfect brows article from Lucky Magazine. If you never did your brows get them done professionally before you try and do it yourself. That way you know what shape your going for. I was happy when I found out Sephora has an Anastasia Brow studio in the city. I hit the one at Times Square. Here’s a pic with my eyebrows from last summer…I have to get them done again but you’ll get the idea…

If you don’t live in the NYC, run, don’t walk, to the nearest newstand and pick this month’s Allure magazine for the Salon/Spa Directory. You can find the best place to get your eyebrows done in your area!
