EASY EYEBROW TUTORIAL – THE LITTLE-KNOWN TIPS YOU NEED

Eyebrows are an element of beauty that has eluded me forever. I’d get them waxed and would endlessly pluck them because that was what you did. But I’d never really paid attention to the most important parts of how to groom your eyebrows – the right placement of arches, where the brows should start and stop, and the proper fullness to best complement my face.

BLOW DRY TOOLS AND TIPS YOU NEED

Let’s face it. Achieving a salon blow out at home is impossible. There. I said it. Impossible. I’m not even going to claim that there’s anything you can possibly do to achieve it because that is simply a lie.
