In my last post, I explained why makeup is not the burden most women make it out to be. Yes, it helps us bring out our best features so that we can be more attractive to potential mates, but we should really use it to protect and preserve our natural beauty.
Our faces are analogous to a business card, and our eyes are the business’ logo. Think about Nike for a split second… what comes to mind? I know, I know. Dumb question because everybody knows about the Nike Swoosh. We should treat our eyes like Nike treats it’s Swoosh. Nike would NEVER let anyone steal or tarnish that logo, so why are we so willing to dismiss our eyes as ordinary.
Remember that old adage: “The eyes are the window to the soul?” Anyone who hesitates to agree that that statement is most apropos is quite frankly kidding themselves. Every woman I’ve ever met has gorgeous eyes and we should do whatever we can to highlight them. In this post, I want to share with you the first of three secrets to ensuring that your eyes are always exquisitely exhibited. Step #1 is to pay special attention to our eyebrows.
Our eyebrows are important because they frame our eyes – they should be thick and properly shaped. Whenever I see a picture of Marlene Dietrich, I cringe a little – not because she is ugly (she is absolutely GORGEOUS – but because she aged herself unnecessarily. Look at a picture of her in her prime:
How old would you guess she is here? When I first saw this picture, I thought she was in her late 40s, but she was actually in her 20s!!
Now, look at this picture of Sofia Vergara:
How old would you guess she is? She will be 42 this year!!
Unfortunately for Marlene, she lived in an era before Adonia Organics from Greek Island Labs. Adonia Organics is a fabulous company that specializes in creating various organic serums that will undo the many faux-pas we commit over the years. Marlene would have benefited tremendously from their Brow Revive serum (pictured below).
Brow Revive was formulated using only the purest natural botanicals and plant extracts, also used by the ancient Greeks, to encourage over-plucked, overly-waxed eyebrows to grow back thicker and fuller. This serum sells for $99, but it lasts for about nine months, depending on how often you use it. Adonia recommends applying the serum on your brows in the morning and just before you go to sleep for the first 21 days, minimum; depending on how comfortable you are with your results, you can reduce the frequency to three days a week.
I know all about having eyebrows that are way too thin from waxing and tweezing more often than you should. Back in February 2013, I bought a tube of Brow Revive (out of sheer desperation and I really didn’t expect any results – I guess I was protecting myself from disappointment!). After using the serum as recommended for about five weeks, my self-esteem sky rocketed!! I used the serum twice a day for those first five weeks; after that I used it twice a week. Here are my eyebrows circa January 2013 – I am still in shock about how thin they are.
In my next post, I want to share with you the second secret to expose your exquisite eyes — by reinvigorating your eyelashes naturally.
