Caterpillars Are Cute...

...but not on your face. Well-groomed eyebrows are non-negotiable. Sorry. A make-up artist friend of mine made this crystal clear eons years ago and I've not looked back! I've gone to the same waxing specialist for nearly 4 years and it's oftentimes the best $7 that is swiped on my Visa.

The shape of your brows frame your face and make your eyes "POP!" unless, of course, you intend to have a butterfly spring from your T-Zone. Ha!

Check out Elke Von Freudenberg's (that's her pictured above) blog, The Model Brow, for tips, tricks and tools for your brows. If you're in NY or LA, there's a chance that you might snag an appointment.
How do you maintain your brows and how much do you pay? Waxing? Threading? Plucking? Not?
If your brow stylist is great, feel free to leave your city and their contact info here for others!

  1. I am so happy I stumbled across your blog. I am destined to live a fabulous lifestyle, but right now I do not have fabulous money and I shouldn't let that, or two kids, a husband, a job, and a blog hinder that.

  2. @Felicia: Broke is not Broken! Please join me on this ride, we'll learn together, swap tips and tricks and emerge victoriously:-) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I go to the same lady everytime and she is the eyebrow queen on a low budget ($7). The best kept secret ever! For preciseness my eyebrow goddess uses waxing, tweezing and a razor to create the best eyebrow shape!

  4. Thanks so much for the mention! So appreciated. I spend (sadly) the majority of my 12-15 eyebrow shapings per day, fixing and reshaping badly botched up eyebrows. Tip: Always look at the technician's brows first to get an idea of what you might get and don't be afraid to ask for a mirror so you can watch. Better to be safe than sorry. :)

  5. I need to revisit my threader. I haven't been in a while and trying to maintain at home. I really shouldn't be so cheap!
