Major online 'zines and sites troll up-and-coming beauty blogs constantly to find new talent. Figure out what makes you unique, though. No one likes a copycat, girl."

Make sure you choose two shades lighter than your hair color if you're a brunette and make the product the background to the hairs by combing through them after application. Product should never be the focal point of your brows."
