Most Basic Beautiful

By Gunner Glam

Without having to spend a fortune on makeup, clothes or accessories, learning the style which makes you look beautiful in absence everything is very important.

Studio Brow would like to share some suggestions according to the web site, Overall Beauty.

  • Got to get ready fast after-work that dinner party or date? Here’s how to get your makeup done quickly.

1- Strengthen eye shadow, a little darker at outer corner and on eyebrow bone.
2- Add a touch of iridescence, if desired.
3- Line under bottom eyelashes with brown or black pencil. Smudge with cotton swab for a smoky eye.
4- Add extra coat of mascara.
5- Add a touch of shimmer to your lips.
6- Strengthen lower lip pout by using a darker lip pencil in the center of lower lip line – All this can be down after work in the bathroom if need be. If you are not the only one that is, in the bathroom. If so then keep at your desk a good size hand mirror, better still the type with lights.

  • If you’re not happy with the texture of your hair, switch shampoos. Sometimes a slight difference in ingredients will change the way your hair looks.
  • The job of foundation is to create a smooth, flawless, clear palette upon which you design and emphasize your best features.
  • When people look at you, where do you want them to focus? If your best asset is your face, wear:

A good makeup job,
A great haircut,
A flattering color near your face,
Outstanding earrings,
A flattering shade of hair color.

  • A final, color-rinse will make your hair shinier!

“Self-confidence is not looking at yourself in the mirror when you’re in public.”

  • A bright red lipstick can make your teeth look yellow, but a blue-red makes them look whiter. As you hunt for that perfect red remember that tip.
  • Don’t use non-waterproof mascara on lower lashes, it smudges into your eye shadow and under-eye cream. It is sometimes better to wear a waterproof mascara on the lower lashes and a non-waterproof on your upper lashes. Waterproof mascara is hard on your lashes is worn all the time so why not wear it on just one set of lashes?
  • Always make your nails an even length by filing them down to match the  shortest one. As much as that might kill you. Short and even beats all different degrees of long. Nail Polish will help hide the fact your nails are short.
  • Makeup on the beach is just inappropriate. Like they are looking at your face, not if bath suit you been working hard on looking good in is doing its trick. Just be natural, all you really need with waterproof mascara and lip balm with sunscreen. Don’t forget your suntan lotion and be willing to ask for and offer a helping hand when need be with putting it on. True fun in the sun!
  • Nails that are not well groomed detract from your style. Keep them perfect withthe use of a emery board, hand cream, polish remover, cuticle scissors, base coat and your favorite color.

“Self-confidence is always being willing to help a friend look better.”

  • For an instant lift, highlight your hair. You can benefit with bring light to your face.
  • What we think “style” means: Your clothes look like they belong to you. Your accessories polish your look, your makeup is quietly correct; your beauty allows your personal charm to show though.
  • Eye shadow technique for every shape eye: Stroke on a light base all over the lid. Place a medium-tone shadow in the corner and drag it about one-third towards the center. Line the crease with a medium tone, blend gently and you’re done!

“Self-confidence is keeping a friend’s secret. You’ll end being better friends.”

  • When putting on eye shadow blow slightly on the brush before starting to put it on your eye lid. By doing that you can save time by not having to clean so much of it off your cheek when you are done putting it on.
  • Beauty routines that are a must! Create your own routine and stick to it!

Moisturize your face,
Rub creamy lotion on your hands and feet,
Shampoo frequently,
Get a manicure,
A pedicure,
and a brow wax (wink) to keep their shape as regularly as you can. You would be surprised how much differences it makes when you do.

  • Use your favorite choice of fragrance to change your mood, as well as that of others around you. A beautiful scent is hard to beat as a mood changer.
  • Don’t be afraid to switch products. Even though you like a particular makeup, technology, is always developing new products and one may more effective for you. Experiment. You can always go back. Who doesn’t get bored sometimes using the same product everyday and not want to change?
  • A facial is something that you deserve! It will work for you as it cleans, softens and revitalizes your skin. Its very relaxing to have someone cleanse your face.
  • A light foundation color is always a better choice than a dark one, which may just muddy your skin.
  • If you want your eyes to stand out, line the outer two-thirds of your eye, top and bottom, then smudge the lines to soften the effect. Depending the look your going for, Blues, Purples, Gold, Brown, Charcoal or your basic Black are great choices.
  • Buy only foundation with sun block. Most foundations have sun block these days anyway.
  • Always remember a great haircut eliminates bad hair days.

“Most of all, being self-confidence is being able to give away a personal beauty secret and not think twice about it.”

Might As Well Jump!

By Gunner Glam

Instead of just being the action of springing clear off the ground or other support by a sudden muscular effort, jumping can also take on different meanings.

Studio Brow thought we would share just how many ways there are to JUMP!

  • Jump the Shark – An idiom created by American radio personality, Jon Hein, that is used to describe the moment in the evolution of a television show when it begins a decline in quality that is beyond recovery. The phrase is also used to refer to a particular scene, episode or aspect of a show in which the writers use some type of “gimmick” in a desperate attempt to keep viewers’ interest.

In its initial usage, it referred to the point in a television program’s history when the program had outlived its freshness and viewers had begun to feel that the show’s writers were out of new ideas. Often, it is after great effort was made to revive interest in the show by the writers, producers or network, particularly in Happy Days when Fonzy literally jumped over a shark using water skis.

The usage of “jump the shark” has subsequently broadened beyond television, indicating the moment in its evolution when a brand, design or creative effort moves beyond the essential qualities that initially defined its success, beyond relevance or recovery.

  • Jump the Gun – To being before the starting signal, originally used in sports contests that are started by firing a gun. Also to do something too soon, especially without thinking carefully about it.
  • Jump Ship –  When someone leaves a job or activity suddenly before it is finished, especially to go and work for someone else.
  • Jumping Jacks – A physical jumping exercise performed by jumping to a position with the legs spread wide and the hands touching overhead and then returning to a position with the feet together and the arms at the sides. The name comes from the traditional toy of the same title.
  • Get Jumped – When a person gets attacked by a group of two or more of people.
  • Feeling Jumpy – When a person feels nervous, high-strung, edgy characterized by fitful, jerky movements.
  • Long Jump – A Track & Field event in which athletes combine speed, strength and agility in an attempt to leap as far as possible from a take off point. This event has been an Olympic medal event since the first modern Olympics in 1896 and has a history in the Ancient Olympic Games.
  • Jump Suit – Originally referred to the utilitarian one-piece garments used by skydivers, but has come to be used as a common term for any one-piece garment with sleeves and legs. Particular usage includes for pilots, drivers, sportspersons and prisoners.

How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?

By Gunner Glam

Studio Brow drives to deliver the best customer service possible and through the web deliver tips on ways to stay beautiful.

Here is some advice on washing your hair on a regular basis, according to an article on Yahoo.com:

About 90 percent of Americans shampoo on a daily basis.

A hundred years ago, people only washed their hair monthly and in the 1950s, it was customary for women to have their hair washed and set once a week at the salon.

A clean head of hair feels fresh and smells great but over-washing can turn one’s healthy locks into a pile of straw.

The average person’s hair grows less than half an inch per month so long strands that have been subjected to a lot of shampooing (as well as chemical treatments, blow drying and the elements), tend to get dried out and dull at the ends and even break off. Dirtier hair-gasp-also holds a style better.

How often you need to shampoo depends on how oily your scalp is and your hair’s texture. Oil-known as sebum-travels more easily down smooth, straight hair, making it look greasier faster.

Sounds a little gross, but sebum helps moisturize and waterproof the hair shaft. This is one reason why curly or coarse hair is drier.

When you wash every day, you typically strip off this natural moisturizer and then have to slather it back on in the form of commercial conditioner.

Joe Murray, owner of Hale Organic Salon in New York City, told Yahoo! Shine that shampooing a couple of times a week is plenty.

“If you can’t stand a being a little oily,” Murray said. “Then coat your wet hair with conditioner up to the ears to protect it and then just wash the scalp.”

On gym days, try simply rinsing with water instead of shampooing and finish with a light conditioner to detangle.

Another tip Murray offered is to “spot clean around the hairline with a little dry shampoo. It will also help stretch the time between blow outs.”

Shampooing does stimulate the scalp, which brings blood flow and healthy nutrients to the hair follicles. As an alternative, Murray said he is a fan of a gentle daily scalp massage and regular brushing with a good quality hairbrush.

People with flaky scalps may be inclined to shampoo frequently, but dermatologist and spokesperson for the American Academy of Dermatology, Nia Terezakis, MD said this can actually exacerbate the problem.

“When you have a flaky scalp its not dirty, its dandruff or a form of psoriasis,” she explained to Yahoo! Shine. “Use a shampoo formulated for dandruff and let it sit on your scalp for 20 seconds before rinsing.”

You can follow up with a separate shampoo and conditioner of your choice, “But don’t scrub,” she advised. “It will flake even more.”

When you choose a shampoo, Terezakis said to pick a product that is made for your specific hair type whether it be oily, dry, limp, curly, etc.

“Companies spend a lot of money on cosmetic chemists and different products really do work.” One exception: “Baby shampoos aren’t necessarily gentle on adult hair,” she warned. “They are made because babies squirm. They don’t sting the eyes but they can be drying.”

If you are used to washing your hair daily, it can take a few weeks to get used to a new routine. You may be over producing sebum to compensate for stripping the scalp. Gradually increase the days between shampooing and see if your hair becomes healthier and takes more time to appear dirty as a result.

The Journey: As Simple as a Nature Walk

By Gunner Glam

There are many different ways to go on a journey; walking, car trip, boat ride and so on.

Studio Brow is not only a central cosmetic destination, we are here to help people realize their true look and beauty while taking life’s journey.

Going on a nature walk can help clear the mind while getting exercise.

A walk along the beach where the sun sets the stage is always a good way to explore the inner self.

In addition to going out among the green, a car ride can help bring back memories of places people used to go.

A boat ride can help a person engage in the ocean or rivers and get a feel of life around and below.

At times, the better part of an event is going there.

When do people know who they are and who they are meant to become?

At times, does it seem like people are not living the life they dreamed of when you were children?

Does the life people are living feel sometimes like it belongs to someone else?

The only way to discover the life people were destined for is to take a journey of self discovery.

Journeys of self discovery are the stuff of legends, myths and fairy tales.

Regardless of the differing names, lands and rewards they all speak about the same journey to know and value oneself.

Often people ask themselves, “Where does the hero begin?”

Where is the heroine going?

And who are they becoming as they move along on the path of self discovery?

What path is the right one?

Who will help them on their quest to find the treasure inside themselves?

Master storytellers from every generation and culture spin tales about how to discover who you are and become it.

Whether a king in search of the lost spirit of his kingdom, princes questing for fame and fortune or maidens overcoming overwhelming odds to take their rightful place — they all give hints about what lies ahead and how to master the challenges that lie on the path of self discovery.
