Every true Professional in the beauty industry (in the United States at least) should be Licensed.
If you are Licensed now, raise your hand. My hand is up, is yours? I am Licensed in not one, but two states.
We get a lot of questions here, but the most frustrating one is will our certificate be a substitute for a real License. No. No it will not. Then we often hear a lot of whining. But why do I need a License if I only want to perform (brow threading, makeup application, microblading, etc.)?
Basically, not getting your License means you probably are not committed. Or you are simply lazy. Yes, this is harsh, but it is also true. Why should you "waste your time&............

So the big buzz in brows right now is Microblading. If you perform brow services, you may be fielding questions about what exactly Microblading is and if your client should get it done.
So let's start with...
Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery, has been around awhile now. Some parts of the world, like the United States, are just catching on. But other parts of the world, like Japan for example, have offered Microblading for many years.
So Microblading works like this: a pigment is manually deposited into the skin by use of a pen-like instrument, which contains several fine needles organized in a line, that resembles a scalpel. When the Microblading tool is pressed .........

What was trending at New York's Fashion Week?
BIG BOLD BROWS.
Bigger has been better for a few seasons now, but the brows on the runway were very thick, lush and enhanced with lots of powders and pencils.
not every client can pull off such a full brow, but those who can will be spot on trend.

Emma Stone dazzled at the Oscars this past week, and her brows were Red Carpet worthy as well!
Not only are they perfectly balanced and proportioned for her features, they are a great example of how brow powders and pencils are used to give brows a little more depth and fullness.
She would look great with a blond that has a hint of red or a very soft auburn powder brushed though the brows.

Thought we would now take a look at Michelle as Marilyn.
They did a very good job of getting Michelle's normally delicate brows amped up. But notice Marilyn's signature mark of the time period - the very sharp, pointed top of the brow. Michelle's brows do have quite the point on top that Marilyn's did in this photo.
Marilyn also wore a much darker brow than her hair. Not everyone can pull that off, but she always looked amazing with a dark brow. The makeup artists did a great job on Michelle!

Thought we would take a look at Golden Globe nominee Michelle Williams Brows.
Michelle's delicate features need an equally delicate brow, and we feel that she achieves this.
Her brows start and end well, are not too thick for her features and have a modern, loose line.
The only thing we would suggest is that she lighten her brow powder by one shade. But notice how you are drawn immediately to her eyes, exactly what a great pair of brows should do.
Next week, we will look at her brows from the film My Week with Marilyn, where she portrays Marilyn Monroe.

This week will will talk about Lea Michele.
Now, usually, her brows are way too far apart. And she has an unusual growth pattern in her brows. They always seem to "lay funny". And they are trimmed far too much.
But in this month's issue of Allure, her brows have come around. Very Elizabeth Taylor, sumptuous and exactly where they should start.
Her brows have never looked better, and I am sure she owes that to her makeup artist.

We can all admit that Sofia is one of the most beautiful women in the world.
What is interesting, is the recent trend in "loose" eyebrows.
Eyebrow design can be "tight" or "loose". Tight brows have very sharp, defined edges, are often heavily penciled or powdered. There are no strays to speak of and the look is uber-groomed.
A loose brow still has shape, but is not artificially defined, it flows more with the natural shape of the brow. There is no severe definition and much less maintenance.
Sofia, along with may other celebs this season, are sporting the looser brow. Although this brow is not as defined, it is never sloppy, just...loose!

Angelina Jolie actually has a spot in our curriculum - as one of the Six Deadly Brow Shaping Sins.
But recently, she has dramatically cleaned up her brow act!
Ms. Jolie now has a near perfect brow. She has a modern starting point, a full brow to frame the eye and a not too harsh arch to help soften her amazing bone structure.
Overall, a beautiful brow that finally fits her face spectacularly.

Kristen Stewart is such a beauty, but her brows are never consistent.
Her main problem is that she regularly has the top of her arch taken off.
Her face shape can handle a flatter brow, but sometimes it is just too flat.
Also, her beginning point often falls too far away from her nose.
But other than that...she is a stunner!
