We all weren't born with Jennifer Connelly's eyebrows. Or maybe you were, but after getting a little tweeze-happy in the nineties you were be left with thin brows. I get a lot of clients asking me how to make their brows fuller. There are so many products on the market right now to get you the brows you have always dreamed of, and if not, there is always makeup. I have had people tell me that they got their eyebrows to grow by using household products such as olive oil, vaseline, and castor oil. I have also seen the great effects of revitabrow and latisse. It is best to do the research yourself and try out a few products and find what is right for you. If all else fails, I recommend trying the combination of a waxy brow pencil combined with brow powder. The pencil will stick to the skin and the powder will set it while giving it a more natural look. Just fill in the gaps with the pencil and use an angled brush to apply the powder. When you are done, use a spooly and brush out the excess powder and set it with some brow gel. Also, it is important to not tweeze in your hair line in between brow appointments. Leave the shaping to the professionals.

Brows at Studio 68 inside the West Hollywood Salon Republic is officially open! My sister Megan and I are very excited to have opened a studio completely dedicated to creating beautiful brows. We are open Tuesday-Saturday to take care of all you brow needs. I am also offering makeup application and makeup lessons upon request. Appointments can be made by booking online through our website, www.gibbonsbrows.com. You can also reach us at (323) 989-BROW.
I am always searching for different ways to fill in my brows. I use pencil, powder and sometimes both depending on my mood. I recently found a great brow pencil. It is just the right shade for my eyebrows and it's reasonably priced too. It's called Vanitymark by Brett Freedman, a Los Angeles based brow artist. It comes in different colors that match a variety of skin tones. You can buy it online for $16.

I read a review in a beauty magazine about this dry shampoo and I decided I had to try it. Not too long after I was browsing through the beauty section at Bed Bath and Beyond and there it was. I knew I had to get it. I was surprised to see that it was so affordable. I always feel a little frustrated when I spend more than $20 on a dry shampoo only to go through it in a few weeks. Got2b is less than $6. It has a nice smell and rivals some of the other top label dry shampoos. I highly recommend this one. It even made my hair look nice on the 3rd day!
