    Great!

    I can't use false lashes anymore, because I'm developing an allergy to the glue, but when I used them on a daily basis I got really fast at adhering them. There is a learning curve, but once that's mastered it's very quick. I did love using them! My lashes are so pale (almost translucent) that I had to put mascara on, even with the false ones. It looked crazy to see my nearly white lashes against the false ones. My boss and her mom, who wear them daily, got me started wearing them. They have brown lashes, so they could just apply the lashes on top of their real ones. I think I had it down to 20 to 30 seconds per eye to adhere them.

    PGM35, How did you get your eyebrows to arch so high? I like it, but mine won't do that. I've had them professionally arched too, but they still weren't that high.

    Does anyone have any advice on electrolysis? I don't have a lot of facial hair, but lately I have noticed these hairs growing on my chin. There aren't many of them, but I hate having to tweeze them so often. They are blonde, so I don't think laser would work. Any tips would be appreciated, such as how many trips does it take, costs, pain, etc.

    Debb I had electrolysis on my eyebrows and I never have to tweeze. Best thing I have ever done. I was fortunate that my sister in law did that for a living. I got it half price.

    I had to go find a pic b/c I wasn't even aware of it!

    I am not sure - LOL - just years and years of tweezing! My mom has them the same way. Maybe it's genes too. I do have a spot on the downward curve of my right eyebrow that won't grow in anymore so I have to fill it in a bit with a pencil.

    Thanks though - no one has ever asked me that before!

    I was going to say genetic, but since they are YOUR brows, I thought you would better address that. Does your mom also have a naked spot on her downward curve??

    Just LOVE that turquoise necklace!!

    Have you tried getting your eyelashes tinted? I get it done because mine are very very light also. I get lashes and brows tinted every month because my brows are also invisible. Actually just got it done today! I go to an Aveda salon, so just look for any salon that specializes in Aveda in your area and they will probably do it... it's so nice to wake up with real eyebrows and lashes and not worry about makeup.

    I am not a fan of brows tattooing. I think it looks too fake. A lot of the women who work at the nail salon do it.

    No - she has many naked spots that she has to fill in. haha! Her eyebrows have been tweezed forever and she has the spaces where they just won't grow anymore. Mine was accidental and then I guess it stuck.

    The necklace is from my starter kit with Lia Sophia jewelry. Let me know if you would like to take a look and I'll send you the link!
