My Brow Makeover With Anastasia

Brow specialist to the stars, Anastasia, took the time from her busy celebrity schedule to preen my brows. She gave me a little snip-snip and reshaping... and an **exclusive** Beauty Banter interview:

We already posted about our must-have Anastasia brow kit.... now the real question is:

What makes for good brows?!

Anastasia says that good brows are all about a person's bone structure and natural brow shape, not the current trends. A common misconception is that a darker brow makes the brow look thicker. Not true, says Anastasia. It actually makes the brow look heavier. To achieve a thicker brow, you have to allow your hairs to grow in properly. But what if your hairs just don't grow (like me) in certain places? Anastasia suggests purchasing a brow grower like her BROW, it stimulates hair growth. Anastasia also points out that lighter brows make the eyes pop more....

As far as must-have products to maintain beautiful brows: "Stencils ($20.00 for the set) to follow the shape," Anastasia urges. "And don't overpluck!"

As for my brow makeover, here's how Anastasia worked her magic:

Apparently, I have an inverted arch. I arch in ALL the wrong places (this is only good when we're speaking in sexual terms...).


So she waxed, plucked, and cut stray hairs.


Then added powder with a brush to fill in the "holes" and a brow gel to set the brows in place. Finally, a tinted highlighter to define lines and highlight brow bone (also great in between waxes to hide protruding hairs).


Voila! New Brows!
