Throughout Beauty Week I have been giving you tips, tricks and advice from experienced professionals in their own craft. Today I wanted to switch it up a bit! I wanted to share a client’s perspective as well as some more info on brows…
Let’s jump right in…
Sabrina Dandridge is an actor and model currently living in NYC. I had the pleasure of meeting Sabrina many years ago when she modeled for my makeup line in Rhode Island where we both happen to be from. She was fantastic of course! I asked Sabrina to share her thoughts with me about getting her makeup done professionally.
Hear Sabrina’s point of view below on what it is like to be the one sitting in the chair…
In my opinion, brows are the bane of the face. It is important to have a groomed brow, and shaped nicely. I get my makeup done fairly often in the line of work I am in (actor, model) and the one thing I notice, that is consistent across the board, is the lack of knowledge, attention and tools involving eyebrow presentation. I almost always have to touch up my brows with my own researched products and proven tools, in order to achieve a more polished and flattering look. Glossier has a product, called Boy Brow, that has changed the game of brow enhancing (for me). I can’t recommend the product enough. It is by far one of the best on the market right now. I’m not being paid to say that, either. Makeup Artists, listen up!
A few things I love about getting my makeup done are the obvious pampering aspect. I won’t deny I enjoy that! Another is access to knowledge. I learn something valuable from every Makeup Artist I meet and work with. They are the experts, after-all, and they all have different information, tips, techniques and tools I like to absorb. I then apply what I learn to enhance my own routines and add to my beauty regime necessities.
Lastly, I love the creative aspect of what can be created and the stories that can be told through the medium of makeup and beauty platforms. I love being a canvas for that sort of expression. It’s a type of art, and I can appreciate the artistry that goes into it.
Chelsea Barber has another perspective I would like to share. Chelsea also modeled for my makeup line many years ago when we both lived in Los Angeles. She is now living in New Orleans and is one of the hair stylists I featured in HAIR TIPS-PART ONE.
Hear what Chelsea has to say below…
Getting your makeup done is fun because it’s someone’s else’s vision of the beauty they see in you. Whether it is enhancing your eyes, your jawline, lips etc. a canvas through an artist’s unique mind.
You get to see different versions of yourself. Find out what you like and do not like.

Back to BROWS…
Eyebrow Microblading is becoming more and more popular by the day. I know I have been dying to get them done. I just wish I was in Florida right now so that my good friend Gina could help a sister out!
What is Microblading?
It’s a Semi-Permanent tattooing technique that has hair like strokes to look like real hair. You will no longer need to fill in your sparse eyebrows or if you don’t have any.
Great for people who have lost their eyebrows or just want to open up their eye area.
As eyebrows frame your face for an amazing natural lift and feel like you can leave the house without any makeup.
Thanks again Gina for being a part of Beauty Week! If you are in Southern Florida you can find Gina’s contact info below. Be sure to tell her I sent you!
As always if you have a question for any of us leave it in the comments.
