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.
