Lash Out This Summer Season

Woman eye

By Gunner Glam

At Studio Brow, our lash services, coined Illumilash Lash Extensions, can are performed in one place; the Lash Lounge.

We thought we would share some tidbits on ways you can keep your lashes looking amazing =)

One of the pretty features of the eyes are the eyelashes. Taking care of eyelashes and maintaining them should be a routine.

– Condition your eyelash by the time you sleep. Eyelashes tend to break easily when they get dry. Make it a point to remove your eye makeup before you get to bed. Remove your mascara from an eyelashes. Put some petroleum jelly on a little cotton swab and stroke it on your eyelashes gently. Another easy way is to hold the cotton swab and allow some butterfly kisses by fluttering your lashes for some seconds. For pretty, long lashes, applying castor oil before you sleep is advised.

– To get a pretty, curled look, use an eyelash curler before applying a mascara. They always give you a natural look and when applied in the right manner, they allow no clumping of lashes.

– Make sure you coat both the top and bottom of your eyelashes. Start by coating the eyelashes slightly with a powder, as this will help hold the mascara that you will apply. make sure you don’t hold the mascara brush for long, instead, wiggle the brush to apply mascara. Apply on both top and cotton coats.

Studio Brow Presents ILLUMILASH Eyelash Extensions

Illumilash (1)By Gunner Glam

        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!

Why Brows? Part Two

By Gunner Glam

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.

Nine Common Beauty Problems, Solved

By Gunner Glam

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!
