Steal this Look! David Beckham “Guybrows”

Posted by dorcasgarcia on Sat, April 2nd, 2011 @ 1:42 am

This eye-opening beauty article: the New York Times reports that more men are hitting the salon to deal with their “guybrows.” All the cool kids are doing it — including Ryan Seacrest and David Beckham.

Yes indeed, men are spending more time refining their grooming habits. Whether you’re looking to control those few wild hairs that become more common as you grow older, or just finally do something about your unibrow, you can easily shape your eyebrows for a cleaner, more uniform look. Your eyebrows lend emphasis to your eyes. There may be a need on shaping the brow above each eye in order to add or enhance the angles of your face. A pair of well-shaped eyebrows may even highlight your personality.

Eyebrow hair removal options:

— Plucking- hair is plucked out one by one with the use of tweezers.

— Threading- hairs are pulled out using a thread.

— Waxing- hair is removed with the use of wax.

If you feel conscious in going to a salon or spa to have your eyebrows shaped, there are available waxing kits for sale. This kit is not recommended for first timers since precision and experience are required. It is best to rely on the expertise of those people who are familiar in eyebrow waxing. At Beauty Strategy we offer Eyebrow Waxing services for Men.

What’s HOT? … Fuschia for Spring!!!

Posted by dorcasgarcia on Fri, April 1st, 2011 @ 10:38 pm

A makeup trend that keeps cropping up over and over is hot, bright fuschia lips. The original runway inspiration for this trend comes from the Marc by Marc Jacobs S/S 10 show, where the models’ lips were painted electric magenta for a brazen beauty look with punk rock undertones. Created by the masterful maquillage maestro Dick Page, who is also the Artistic Director for Shiseido, these bright fuchsia lips are obviously the most outrageous example of the trend, but we think they actually translate to real-life quite nicely.

Quick tips:

— Keep the rest of your makeup super simple so that your makeup doesn’t compete with the fuschia!
— Fuschia is as strong as the red color. So treat it with respect. Eyes can be gold and bronzed or dark and lined, but not overdone. Keep cheeks bronzed or very subtly blushed.
— If you’re very fair, a bright cool-toned pink with shine is a great option for day, or if you want to test the trend. When you’re ready to try it, simply layer a clear red gloss over it for full on fuschia power.
— If you’re prone to lipstick bleed, line and blot before applying your fuschia lipstick.
— Because the color is so strong you might find it easier to apply with a lipbrush instead of straight from the tube.

Fuschia is such a fab addition to any outfit, making it more interesting and highlighting your most sensual feature- your lips.  Give it a try and you won’t regret it! Explore with different lipsticks in pink, mix them o get that perfect shade that just feels right until to get the fabulous fuschia look!
