Raising Eyebrows Book coverFashion Flash Book Review– Raising Eyebrows

I love drilling down  into a subject and Raising Eyebrows by Cameron Tuttle ( Chronicle Books)  is just my kind  of book.

According  to Ms Tuttle, there are groomed brows, droopy brows, strong  brows, wispy brows, and what she calls “wow” brows.  But author Tuttle believes that all brows can be beutiful  and deserves to be loved.  She feels that a great brow can make you  look younger, thinner, happier and richer and  she backs that  promise with over 100 pages of illustrations, fun facts, beauty tips,  brow history.  For example did  you know  that camels have three eyebrows  and there are now eye brow extensions for the over-plucked.

Raising Eyebrows  goes up close and personal to explain which eye shape  works best for different eye shapes and how to match hair and brow color.  The book closes with a terriffic guide to the different   brow tools and make-up and how and why to use each one.   For example, I  had always thought that brow  wax was a gimmick. This  entertaining  book  explained how  brow wax can both color and shape even the most unruly brows.   Raising Eyebrows is my kind of book  and has definately  earned a spot  on my beauty  book shelf.
