Fashion FLash Book Review: How to Fake Real BeautyFashion Flash Book Review: How to Fake Beauty by Ramy Gafni

In 2015 eyebrows have been  the feature of the year. There  has been no shortage of advice on shaping and styling, but not much really worked for me.   Ramy Gafni, author of How to Fake Real Beauty” is a true brow guru. In fact the Today Show called him  the “Brow Whisperer”.  He offers   honest and genunely hepful advice. He is the first expert who admits tht we can’t really “choose”  our brow shapes.  Rather he explains how to work with our existing brow bone.  I also felt validated when he warned against  shaping the brow into the dreaded “C”.  This is what I wound  up with from  my”celebrity” brow expert.:(

By contrast Remy demonstrates how to cut the brows into a clear line.  He takes the same care to illustrate how to use powder and wax to add width and length to any brow. The book takes the same care to illustrate how to “fake”  radiant, healthy glow,  youthful  lips, white teeth and full smooth hair.

Remy has his own line of products but he also includes other brands  in his recommendations.  It adds an admirable credability to his advice.
