I can go to makeup heaven now.
Hands that have touched the likes of Beyonce and Madonna…have touched moi!
Makeup God I ask you:
What have I done to deserve this?
Surely at some point in time I did something pleasing in the eyes of Makeup God. How else do I explain my recent experience with the man known as the “EYEBROW KING”
The internationally renowned “EYEBROW KING”, also known as Damone Roberts
, has revolutionized the beauty industry. Damone’s
philosophy is that each person exudes their own individual beauty and every face deserves the perfect frame. Damone’s
talent for sculpting the perfect arch has graced some of the world’s most famous faces. He has worked with Angela Bassett
, Madonna, Beyonce
, Mandy Moore, Vanessa Williams, Brandy, Paula Abdul, and Diva Extraordinaire, Ms Diana Ross…to name a few. He has been featured in Allure, Essence, Vogue, The New York Times, Variety, W, Elle, marie claire
, Glamour, etc….and Damone
can be seen regularly on TLC’s
national hit show “10 Year’s Younger”
Mr. Roberts’ celebrity roster is very impressive. His salon is lined with framed magazine covers featuring celebrities pledging their undying loyalty. Despite all of the glitz and glam, what I found most impressive about Damone Roberts, was Damone Roberts. Damone Roberts the man. Damone Roberts the human being. And at the risk of sounding overly dramatic, I must add that Damone Roberts is VERY HUMAN.
His genuine warmth and graciousness filled the entry way of his Fifth Avenue salon as I stepped off the elevator. And that authentic feeling of sincerity (which was also exuded by Damone’s salon colleagues (Hello, to the lovely Marilyn:-)) continued from hello to goodbye.
I am also impressed with Damone’s philanthropic work. Mr. Roberts recently hosted a very special evening at “Gilda’s Club”, an organization that supports those living with cancer.
In addition to sitting down with Damone
for an in depth interview, I was also fortunate enough to experience
his artistry on my very own brows. After sculpting my brows, Damone
explained his process/ philosophy
1) Examine facial structure and determine the proper brow shape. No stencils allowed!
2) Thicker is better. Damone encouraged me to not over pluck and allow a fuller brow to emerge for my next visit.
3) Next Damone
, and trimmed my brows to the shape of my face. And not a once did he hurt me.
4) My brows were filled in with Minx pencil
5) Then Damone
used Gold Digger Brow Highlight
to, well, highlight 🙂
6) And lastly, Damone
slicked it all down with a little brow gel
And honey, I…LOOK…FIERCE!!!!

all of my lovely NY/NJ/CT/Phila ThisThatBeauty
readers to plan a visit to Damone
Roberts New York. If Damone
himself is not available, ask for Armond
. I hear he’s very good as well (I’ll be visiting Armond
For all of my west coast ThisThatBeauty honeys, plan to hit up Damone Roberts Beverly Hills.
And for all of my beautiful ThisThatBeauty readers not near either Damone Roberts salon, fret not. Through the magic of the Internet (created by Al Gore…I kid I kid) Damone’s eye brow maintenance products can be yours.
While his full line, which I’ve been using since my visit, is great…your best value is the COMPLETE BROW KIT
THE BROW KIT includes the following essential items:
This fabulous kit includes everything you need to have World Class eyebrows (Tweezer, Brow Shadow, Brow Highlighter, Brow Pencil, Scissors, Brow Gel, Brow Smudge Brush, Brow Angled Brush, Sharpener). If you want to create the perfect frame, this kit is a must. Conceived and created by Damone Roberts, The Eyebrow King, it is the beauty must-have. When the salon is just a little too far away, beauty and perfect brows can still be at your disposal. As a bonus Damone has included some of his most useful eyebrow tips as guides.
And even though THE COMPLETE BROW KIT is, in my opinon, the best way to go…please allow me to highlight my personal favorites:
What girl doesn’t like diamonds? Well now you can have the look and sparkle of a woman’s best friend on your brow bone with this white shimmer highlighter. Perfect for evenings or applying as a highlight on cheeks, the brow highlighter produces a softer, deeper, more natural look providing the finishing touch on the perfect frame.
BROW SMUDGE BRUSH – I was skeptical when I first met this little brush. “Why does it look like a concealer brush”, I wondered. “This doesn’t resemble a typical highlighter brush”, I pondered. Much to my surprise this brush blends highlighter flawlessly and like a dream.
This Smudge Brush was made to work seamlessly with the Damone Roberts Signature brow highlighters. Exclusively selected by The Eyebrow King, the synthetic materials and soft, nylon bristles blend perfectly with the wax of the highlighter to add a smooth finish. Every face deserves the perfect frame, that goal is realized with this exclusive, industry developed brush.
BROW GAIN – While the results are not in yet, I love what this product is supposed to do. Damone says I have a naturally high arch so the over plucking that has taken place in the past need not continue going forward. Having said that, I am a prime candidate for BROW GAIN and will report results in 6-8 weeks.
The perfect eyebrows are rich, full and show the perfect arch. Whether by nature or over plucking, at times, you can suffer from a thinning of our eyebrows. This can affect the entire look of your face. Brow Gain helps to create healthier looking, fuller eyebrows by stimulating the surrounding hair follicles. Generally, results will be seen about 6 to 8 weeks after use begins. Individual results may vary. Your face deserves the perfect frame. With The Eyebrow King’s Signature Brow Gain as the catalyst, that goal is within reach.
