Brooke Shields: Beauty, Brows, & Aging Gracefully
Those of you that know me know that I am a long-time Brooke Shields fan. And for many reasons! First, she has been in the limelight since she was 14 years old, and at 47 now she continues to radiate natural beauty. I also love that she maintains her youth with easy and inexpensive beauty rituals that we should all be following. From her beauty, to her brows, Brooke Shields is basically my aging guru, which is why I want to share some of her beauty secrets with you.
Brooke’s Steps to Success
Sunscreen – I am such a huge advocate of sunscreen. And if you didn’t believe me before, perhaps Brooke can serve as living proof. Shields uses a quality SPF of a daily basis and it has helped to slow down the aging process significantly. I can’t tell you how many people tell me “they don’t spend time in the sun regularly”. But the truth is, most of us are getting a lot of sun exposure during the day, whether it be walking into the grocery store, driving in the car, or sitting in our sun-lit offices. Applying sunscreen everyday will help you stay beautiful
Beauty Sleep – As a business owner, mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend I know what its like to be busy. But making those 8 hours a priority will not only help you feel better, it will help you look better. If you need to be up early, plan to go to bed earlier to match.
Healthy Eating – This is yet another generic step to maintaining your beauty. And I personally don’t think enough of us take advantage of it! Eating healthy can be delicious, helps with our internal health, as well as our external appearance. Not only will your skin look better, but your waistline will likely enjoy the benefits as well.
Limit the Alcohol – We all know that alcohol isn’t great for your body in general, but it can wreak absolute havoc on your skin. I’m not telling you to say goodbye to your favorite wine or brew forever, just enjoy it in moderation! Much like beauty sleep and eating healthy, your body will feel better as well.
Know What Works For You – There are lots of women who resort to Botox to reduce the appearance of aging. And while it may work for some, it is simply not a good solution for others. Brooke does admit to having some Botox done, and was not a fan of the procedure, calling it “claustrophobic”. This doesn’t make it wrong for everyone, but consider your natural options before heading to more drastic measures!
Beautiful bold brows have exploded in the fashion industry over the past couple of years. But of course the lovely Brooke was naturally endowed with a perfectly full pair decades before the trend made its presence know. Lets be honest, not all of us are born with Brooke brows, SO I want to share some of my favorite brow-enhancing products with you!
LiBrow Eyebrow Growth Serum - This is far and beyond my favorite long-term brow enhancing product. Of course, LiBrow does require some patience, with results being their strongest 6-8 weeks after beginning use. But I can personally testify that this product really does work. I started seeing results about 3 weeks in, and was amazed with how much progress my brows made between then and week 8. Something that makes this product extra-special to me is the fact that it is tinted - so even in the short term I get to enjoy fuller looking brows.
La Bella Donna Complete Brow Kit - I absolutely love this kit for a number of different reasons. First, it comes in three shades so you don't really have to be a "one size fits all" kind of customer. It comes with a highlighting cream
Glo Minerals Precision Brow Pencil - If you like to do things in a quick-and-easy sweep, then this product is definitely perfect for your purse. It comes in four shades for different hair colors
Youngblood Brow Artiste - This is a celebrity favorite and is a definite contender to La Bella Donna's brow kit. You have four different shade options, a fabulous brow brush that helps achieve perfect application, and of course tweezers for those days you just need a quick touch-up. I absolutely love the long-lasting results of this compact, and that it is easy to carry around in my purse as well!
Blinc Eyebrow Mousse - I recommend this product to my brow-fanatics that don't want quite that "filled in look". Those color glides onto your hairs to enhance the color, and it helps them stay in the perfect shape all day, which I love! You have a whopping 6 different shades to choose from, and you can rest assured that your prows will not fade, run, or smudge even if you sweat, or the weather is just terrible outside. One of my favorite additions to this product though is the fact that it delivers anti-aging benefits to the underlying skin.
Big, Bold, Beautiful brows are here to stay, and Brooke Shields is certainly a pioneer for the trend.
