Studio Brow is here to not only give great customer care, but experience as well with each service we provide.
Are eyelash extensions something you’ve thought about?
In addition to eyebrow shaping services, such as waxing threading, we offer offers semi-permanent, synthetic lashes, coined Illumilash, to show off when going to the club, party or get together that can last up to two months with proper care and maintenance.
Studio Brow offers four degrees of Illumilash Eyelash Extensions; Natural, Lovely, Elegant and Gorgeous going on your individual style and fit.
We use a surgical grade, water-resistant adhesive to bond the extensions to your natural lashes, so you can shower, swim or exercise, worry-free.
Eyelash extensions will lengthen and thicken your lashes and also can eliminate the need for mascara.
Studio Brow’s services are performed by our own certified “Browstars” who have become licensed cosmetologists taught by experienced professionals to provide eyelash extensions.
Enhancements designed to add length, thickness and fullness to natural eyelashes, eyelash extensions may be compared to hair extensions for one’s eyelashes.
Some brief history of eyelash extensions: The Greek word for eyelash is “blepharis“. This word is often used as a root in biological terms. Kohl, a black powder (usually antimony sulfide or lead sulfide), has been worn as far back as the Bronze Age to protect and enhance lashes. In Ancient Egypt, it was used as well by the wealthy and the royal to protect their eyes from the sand, dust and bugs. Modern eye makeup includes mascara, eyeliner, eye putty and eye shadow to emphasize the eyes.The invention and use of eyelashes extensions began in 1916 when director D.W. Griffith was making his film, Intolerance. He wanted actress Seena Owen to have lashes “that brushed her cheeks, to make her eyes shine larger than life.” These first eyelash extensions were made of human hair woven through fine gauze by a local wig maker. They were then attached to Owen’s eyelashes.
Illumilash will enlighten your being by taking the beauty which is already there and bring out its shine and brighten your world.
A painless and relaxing procedure, you’ll be amazed with the results; they are virtually weightless and have an incomparable look and feel.
There is only one way to experience longer, thicker and beyond imaginable lashes and that is with ILLUMILASH!

In our series of explaining the significance of eyebrows, we thought we would share how important it is to have a well-groomed pair.
From an article on Yahoo written by The Pen, Brows are the first thing people will notice about your face, even if it’s subconsciously. A thick heavy brow will bring attention to just the brows. While a pencil thin brow will take attention off of the top half of the face and onto the lower part.
The place that you want people to focus should always be the eyes themselves, because they are the windows to your soul. Having a well groomed brow will do just that, bringing the attention to your eyes and serving as a frame for the entire face.
Even if you’re not big on makeup, maintaining your brows is essential. Having an unkempt brow is just out of the question. A brow that has too many stray hairs out of the natural arch line can leave its owner looking as if they don’t care about how they look, or have just given up.
A naturally thick bushy brow that’s left in its natural state can make even the most feminine face look masculine. And the dreaded uni-brow just leaves everyone looking frightful.
On the flip side, the thin overly arched brow of the past few years is just as awful a makeup crime. It can make a woman look outdated and washed out especially if her brows are blonde or light brown.
It’s almost a requirement that she wears makeup with that kind of brow, because the look is quite severe and will age every wearer, since people’s brows naturally thin as they get older.
The brow that is in now, falls somewhere in between the pencil thin brow and the one nature gave you. It follows your natural arch instead of carving out a whole new one, and takes away those stray hairs that grow past it. It’s simple and not as high maintenance as the overly arched brow.
It will also frame your face the best, because the arch you were born with is right will define your features best. Another perk to this brow is that you can run out of the house with no makeup on and still look presentable and fresh.

Have hair, skin or makeup problems that just cannot be solved? Studio Brow would like to share what hair expert Eva Scrivo, makeup artist Mally Roncal and dermatologist Dr. Amy Wechsler answer the most challenging beauty questions, according to According to Good Housekeeping.
Hair Expert: Eva Scrivo
Eva Scrivo, owner of Eva Scrivo salons in New York City, answers three commonly asked hair questions.
Q: Is it better for your hair to change the shampoo and conditioner you use every few months?
Only if you are unhappy with how your hair looks or feels. Hair is reactive to products in general, so changing your shampoo and conditioner can create a different effect. For example, if you want more smoothness, try a hydrating shampoo, which deposits moisturizers that close the hair cuticle. But if you are using hair care that you love, there is no reason to make a change.
Q: What are some easy tricks that will help me pick a natural-looking color for an at-home hair dye?
Match the color to your eyebrows. Your brows are always a guideline to what looks natural and what would be a complimentary base color. This works even when you are going gray, since brow hair typically doesn’t lose melanin and therefore doesn’t go gray at the same pace as the hair on your head.
Q: What’s the most universally flattering hairstyle for a woman over 40?
A side-swept bang with soft layers around the face. It softens the neck and strengthens the cheekbones. The A-symmetrical line of a long bang pushed to the side also slims the face.
Dermatologist: Dr. Amy Wechsler
New York City dermatologist Dr. Amy Wechsler answers three commonly asked skincare questions.
Q: Between a cleanser, moisturizer, night cream, and eye cream, where does it make sense to spend the big bucks?
You definitely don’t have to spend big bucks to get quality skincare! You can find lots of great options for cleansers and moisturizers at the drugstore, but if you are going to splurge on one product, consider buying a pricier antioxidant serum. A good serum requires a high concentration of antioxidants – highly effective anti-agers that boost the price – so I tell my patients this is one product that’s worth the extra bucks.
Q: Do I need to change my skincare routine seasonally?
You don’t need to change it completely, just make a few minor tweaks. For example, in winter you may need to moisturize more because dry air, central heating, and wind can dry out or chap your skin. In summer, add a toner with salicylic acid to remove the layer of dead skin cells on the surface that hold onto oil; it will prevent shine, make you look refreshed, and provide a natural glow. Look for one with no more than 0.5 percent salicylic acid to avoid over-drying your skin.
Q: Do I need to exfoliate? If so, how often and with what?
Yes, but the answer really depends on your skin type and age. Exfoliation is something you want to start in your teens, and for sure by your twenties and thirties. By the time you reach your thirties, your skin begins to thin and becomes more vulnerable to the environment. At the same time, the natural enzymes in your skin begin to remove dead skin cells less efficiently, so they hang on and prevent your skin from reflecting light. As a result, you look ashy. Start by using an exfoliating cleanser once or twice weekly. Look for ingredients like sugar, oatmeal, or small synthetic beads (all of which are found in common exfoliating products). Or, if your skin is particularly dull, flaky, or red, try a cleanser with salicylic acid, which is less irritating than other chemical exfoliators.
Makeup Expert: Mally Roncal
Makeup artist and president and creator of Mally Beauty Mally Roncal answers three commonly asked makeup questions.
Q: No matter what I do, I can’t cover up my dark under eye circles, any tricks or new products?
A good trick for camouflaging under eye darkness is to brighten the outer corners of the eyes, where we all tend to have a bit of darkness and discoloration. Apply highlighter by sweeping it in a C shape from the corner of your eyelid, to the top of your cheekbone. It really opens up the eyes.
Q: What are the top three essentials I need to have in my makeup bag?
My top three must-haves: concealer, mascara, and blush. Concealer and mascara can immediately light up your eyes, and blush will perk up your complexion. Choose cream formulas of concealer and blush, and you won’t even need to carry a brush with you. Using your fingers is the fastest and easiest application method, and the best way to help blend the product seamlessly into skin.
Q: How do I choose among the many foundation formulas out there?
Use your skin type to guide your foundation choice. For example, if your skin is oily, then opt for a powder foundation. If you have dry skin, I would recommend trying a cream foundation instead. You know that old school rule about matching your foundation to your neck? Your neck is in a perpetual shadow, so it tends to be a bit paler than the rest of your face. Instead, match your foundation to your collarbone, which is on the same plane as your face and will give you a more accurate shade!

Ever had an amazing time putting makeup on in the morning but step outside in the middle of a downpour just to have it all smeared? Don’t worry, Studio Brow would like to provide some tips on how to avoid ruining makeup on rainy days.
Some of the best ways are with:
- Concealer mixed with Origins GinZing Eye Cream
- Waterproof Mascara
- Tinted moisturizer and powder
- Lipstick (because wind plus sticky lip gloss plus hair flying all over the place equals messy)
Primer mixed with foundation is helpful in the rain, along with curled lashes, tubing mascara, blush and powder. If not, use an oil-absorbing primer.
Choose powders over crèmes. Generally, powders have a better chance of absorbing oil and moisture. Most crèmes don’t. Mineral powders really do their job on rainy days, as they are water-resistant while maintaining the kind of medium coverage that’s needed in everyday makeup.
Opt for waterproof mascara. This may be more difficult to remove than your regular mascara, but it keeps you from getting those nasty black streaks under the eyes. And while you’re at it, pick for yourself waterproof eyeliner, as well, to make sure your eye makeup stays in place.
Wear the smallest amount of makeup possible if you are planning to go outdoors on rainy days. But if you have to wear eyeshadow, pat on some concealer to make the powder adhere to your lids.
Don’t forget to use waterproof mascara to prevent unsightly raccoon eyes. For blush, a cream or liquid formula is best, as long as you apply it before setting your foundation with powder. A slight swipe of powder will make the color refuse to budge, resulting in streaky cheeks.
However, waterproof makeup should not be used on a regular basis.
Never use waterproof makeup every day. At the most, use it twice a week because prolonged use of waterproof makeup can darken your skin, especially delicate areas like your lips.
Waterproof makeup strips the skin of moisture. For instance, waterproof mascara can make eyelashes brittle and silicone can dry out your skin, so always moisturize properly and remove all traces of makeup afterwards.
Also, disregard makeup when you don’t really need it. While it sounds like common sense to avoid using makeup in places such as the beach or while doing water sports, you’ll be surprised at the number of people who insist on using mascara, concealer and blush when they know they’re going to get drenched anyway.
How to fix rain-smeared makeup
Don’t spend your entire lunch break fixing your makeup. If the rain made you look like a mess, here is what you can do for a quick cleanup:
Runny mascara – First of all, don’t forget to use waterproof mascara if the weather looks overcast. Too late for that! With your ring finger, gently wipe away the smears (it should be easy enough to remove) and pat on some concealer and pressed powder over any smears that refuse to budge.
Streaky blush – Do not attempt to fix your blush by piling on more and more powder; it’ll only make the streakiness more obvious. Instead, wipe away the original layer with tissue and start anew.
Smeared eye shadow - With a sponge, blend the smeared portions so they don’t look like weird splashes of color on your lids. Then using a brush or your fingers, lightly dot fresh eye shadow onto your lids. Try to use neutral colors like cream, brown or pale pink so any mistakes will be minimized.
Caked powder – Pat, not rub, a piece of tissue over your skin. Then with a fluffy brush, swipe powder over key areas such as your T-zone. Avoid using a used powder puff, as this might contain oil deposits.
- Beginning at the base it is worth mentioning that often the main cause of smudging is the excessive foundation use. Those who find it indispensable might still use a thin coat of it however it should be preferably water resistant. Moreover choose the right shade that’s closer to your natural skin tone.
- Powder will prove to be the best tool to offer a slight shimmer and mask the beauty flaws at the same time. This will stick to your complexion rather than any kind of foundation. It will require a quick touch up during the day, however it guarantees the spotless effect.
- Those who have a great complexion should totally eliminate this product of the daily makeup list, instead it is more advisable to use a concealer than to apply a sheer powder.
- Rain immediately means waterproof mascara. Since a normal mascara would quickly smudge when in contact with humidity it is recommended to use a special formula that will resist the extreme weather conditions.
- It is a well-known fact that these products can’t be washed off so easily. However with the use of the proper makeup removers this problem will be also ruled out.
- Makeup artists also recommend switching the dark eye shadows with the more natural and sheer colors preferably also with a waterproof quality. The colors of the season offer endless options to look great even if the weather outside is gloomy.
- It is a common mistake that ladies seem to commit during each monsoon season. Namely that they use a blush with an inappropriate texture. The rainy days scream for complex compositions, that’s why it is a golden rule that when sporting a monsoon-proof makeup we should choose a mousse or cream blush that can resist the impact of humidity.
- The makeup gurus often neglect the use of blush during the fall season instead practice a smashing trick. They use a bit of lipstick you can spread with your fingernails and the effect is just as gorgeous as with the use of blush.
- Lip gloss is the top notch no-no beauty product of the monsoon season. It might get in contact with humidity which can result in smudging and at least said unflattering look. That’s why you should rather rely on high quality lipstick that will fabulously top your makeup. There are several formulas and brands on the market that guarantee a long-lasting effect.
- Make sure you test it beforehand in order to avoid any lip makeup accidents. You can either go for the blood red lips effect or rather for the classy and natural makeup trends. Choose the one you can pull off with great style in order to perfect your monsoon look.

- The bony ridge that extends over the eye.
- The arch of short hairs that covers this ridge.
Idiom – Caused raised eyebrows.
Latin origin – Supercilium.
The eyebrow is an area of thick, delicate hairs above the eye that follows the shape of the lower margin of the brow ridges of some mammals, especially humans.
Their main function is to prevent sweat, water and other debris from falling down into the eye socket, but they are also important to human communication and facial expression (our favorite part).
It is not uncommon for people – women in particular – to modify their eyebrows by means of hair addition, removal, makeup or piercings.
The typical curved shape of the eyebrow, with a slant on the side, and the direction in which eyebrow hairs are pointed, ensure that moisture has a tendency to flow sideways around the eyes, along the side of the head and along the nose.
The slightly protruding brow ridges of modern humans could also still play a supporting role in this process.
Together with the brow ridges, the eyebrows also shade the eyes from sunlight.
Eyebrows also prevent debris such as dandruff and other small objects from falling into the eyes, as well as providing a more sensitive sense for detecting objects being near the eye, like small insects.
Eyebrows also have an important function in communication by strengthening expressions, such as surprise or anger.
There are makeup artists who view eyebrows as a major feature in defining the face. The eyebrows shape the human face and give definition to one’s eyes and forehead.
Depending on the shape of the eyebrows, it sometimes can cause what is known as a false facial expression, such as a person’s eyebrows shaped to seem as if the person was angry, but really isn’t.
In a study published by MIT, where subjects were asked to identify celebrities with either their eyes or their eyebrows digitally edited out, the subjects were able to recognize the celebrity 46 percent of the time with their eyebrows edited out, compared to 60 percent of the time with their eyes edited out. The findings indicate the importance of eyebrows in providing cues to an individual’s identity.
Eyebrows are a major facial feature. Cosmetic methods, like waxing and threading, have been developed to alter the look of one’s eyebrows, whether the goal is to add or remove hair, change the color or change the position of the eyebrow.
Several options for removing hair to achieve a thinner or smaller eyebrow, or to “correct” a unibrow, including tweezing, waxing, threading and electronic tweezer.
The most common method is to use tweezers to thin out and shape the eyebrow. Waxing is becoming more popular. Lastly, there is threading eyebrows, where a cotton thread is rolled over hair to pull it out. Small scissors are sometimes used to trim the eyebrows, either with another method of hair removal or alone.
Some people wax or shave off their eyebrows and leave them bare, stencil or draw them in with eyeliner, or tattoo them on. In Western societies, it has become more common for men to pluck part of their eyebrows.
To create a fuller look, eyebrows can be cloned in an eyebrow transplant: Individual strands of the eyebrow are mimicked to create a natural-looking eyebrow of the desired shape. Eyebrow brushes and shaders are used to further define the eyebrow. A fairly recent trend in eyebrow modification is in eyebrow tinting: Permanent dye, similar hair color, is used on the eyebrow, often to darken them.
An eyebrow lift, a cosmetic surgery to raise the eyebrow, usually to create a more feminine or youthful appearance, is a new phenomenon.
They can be affected during a face lift or an eye lift. More recently, doctors inject patients’ eyebrows with botox or similar toxins to temporarily raise the eyebrow.
From the eight century, many Japanese noblewomen practiced hikimayu, shaving or plucking the eyebrow hair and painting smudge-like ones higher on the forehead. Shaving lines in eyebrows is another cosmetic alteration, more common among younger people in the 1990s and 2000s.
Eyebrows can make or break a person’s entire look, according to makeup artists and brow experts in the field.
They can make your eyes look droopy when they’re not, or make you look angry when, in fact, you’re not.
This is why it’s essential to be very cautious when grooming your brows. There is a very fine line between a perfectly shaped brow and an overly tweezed brow.
If you think about it, your brows, even when big and bushy, have very little real estate on your face. One or two plucks too many can leave you with a pretty scary shape.
See a brow expert who can help you assess what you need to do in order to get the most flattering brow shape for you. This is where Studio Brow comes in.

When it comes to going out into the real world, handbags are as essential as clothes, shoes or any item of the wardrobe. As a reflection of style, the world should see who people are and what makes them look unique. As such it is essential to be able to choose the piece that is closest to personality and stay in trend. Studio Brow would like to share a list of top 10 Bag trends for the Spring and Summer 2012 fashion season, according to Millionlooks.com.
Bag Trend #1: Knitted bags. Just as shoes come knitted in Spring/ Summer 2012 season, so do bags. Knitting looks unusual and stylish but people should be sure to have the right clothing to pair it with.
Bag Trend #2: Large clutches. While clutches are usually small and fancy those designers offer us to carry during Spring/ Summer 2012 are large enough to hold all necessary stuff a woman needs daily. Such clutches come both in neutral colors to be good for office wear and in brighter hues for less formal outfits.
Bag Trend #3: Printed bags. We are normally rather practical and choose bags which are more or less versatile. But designers advise us to be bolder during Spring/ Summer 2012 fashion season and invest into bags which are not ordinary, those which feature interesting patterns.
Bag Trend #4: Foldover bags. Foldover bags have been popular for a couple of seasons already and they will stay in fashion for the entire Spring/ Summer 2012 season. Foldover bags come in a great variety of sizes, colors and prints.
Bag Trend #5: Small shoulder bags. Shoulder bags have always been in vogue. But in Spring/ Summer 2012 only small shoulder bags will be trendy. And despite they are called ‘shoulder’ bags they can as well be carried in hands.
Bag Trend #6: Satchel bags. Satchel bags are very comfortable. They don’t look big but can hold plenty of things. So, they are best for those of us who like to have everything for every occasion just in the bag.
Bag Trend #7: Wristlets. Wristlets, which are perfect for women who often lose things, will be very trendy during Spring/ Summer 2012. They come in a variety of designs and tones.
Bag Trend #8: Totes and weekend bags. Huge bags will not be very popular during Spring/ Summer 2012 fashion season but average-sized totes and weekend bags will. Opt for vibrant hues to stand out of the crowd or neutrals if you want a bag you could accessorize your every look with.
Bag Trend #9:Tiny bags. Women have always loved small bags – they are good for special occasions and look interesting. But are people ready for a bag which is not small but tiny? Whether or not they are, these bags are to be a hit in summer.
Bag Trend #10: Chain handles. Yes, since Chanel first introduced chain handles they have always been popular with fashionistas. The secret is simple: chain handle looks even more luxurious than it really is.
