    Top NY-LA Celebrity Makeup Artist and Eyebrow Specialist, Elke Von Freudenberg shares her expert tips on how to get your bridal brows looking model perfect for the big day.

    To get brows looking perfect, don’t feel you need to grow in your eyebrows for 2-3 months before you can even make an appointment. Growth for that length of time usually ends up with overgrown eyebrows in places you really don’t need anyway.” , states Elke Von Freudenberg. Two to three weeks is usually enough time to reshape a brow. If you’re looking to grow very thin eyebrows thicker, then expect at least a good 3-4 months time for your brows to fill in. “One to two appointments is all that’s needed to get your brows model perfect for the wedding day,” says Elke. ”The first appointment should be 1 month before your wedding, and the 2nd, as close to the wedding day as possible, at the least, 1 day before.

    Elke also offers these top makeup tips to get bridal gorgeous for the wedding photos:

    1. Avoid looking too trendy in your wedding photos.
    2. Avoid very thin, too sharply arched, or a rounded shaped brows. This can look very dated in the wedding photos, much like a too trendy hairstyle.
    3. Keep the brow shape classic, and as close to your natural growth pattern as possible to create a classic, yet elegant look on your wedding day.

    To tweeze or wax? That depends on the type of hair you have. Elke claims that thicker hair responds better to waxing, while thinner, lighter hair likes tweezing because you can keep it’s shape without worrying about hairs not growing back. She recommends waxing for the bride at least a week before the wedding date, and then a light tweezing, 1-2 days before the wedding day for picture perfect brows.

    For made up brows, avoid a brow color that is very dark or heavy. Go with a brow shade that’s 1-2 shades lighter than your hair color, to create a perfect match. I’ve always felt that the goal of great eyebrows is to have people look at your eyes, not your eyebrows.” claims Elke. For a softer brow, apply brow shadow, and then lightly brush through with a toothbrush, or brow brush to soften and blend the color, a step that is often overlooked.

    Elke’s top selling Day Brow Shadows are made without undertones of grey, green or orange, to create a softer, more natural looking brow. Shown: Day Brow Shadow in Ash Brown, Dark Brunette, Auburn and Blonde
    Avoid a very shiny or glittery brow highlight for those wedding photos. Flash photography can create a glare effect in the photos, and while it looks pretty in person, apply a brow highlight that has more of a soft shimmer, than a strong frost to compliment and bring out the brow shape. Show off great brows with Elke’s Hi-Light Shadow. Just apply under the brow to bring out and sharpen the brow line.

    Shown: Hi-Light Shadow in Sugar, White Star, Canary, Cyber Glow.

            Elke Von Freudenberg
            Eyebrow Specialist LA / NY
            http://www.elkevonfreudenberg.com

            Elke Von Freudenberg is a highly acclaimed photography makeup artist & eyebrow specialist. Her expertise as a licensed Esthetician in both CA and NY in shaping eyebrows for celebrities and models have made her a highly sought after eyebrow expert. Her makeup work has been seen at The Academy Awards®, The Golden Globes, in numerous magazines such as European Harper’s Bazaar & Elle, People Magazine, In Touch, as well as on the runways of Dolce & Gabana, Ralph Lauren, Diane Von Furstenberg and Bisou Bisou. Elke is also the creator of The Brow Collection, a makeup line of fashionable and unique brow products online at www.themodelbrow.com.

            Top 5 No No Eyebrow Looks of 2008

            For 2008, eyebrows were all the rage on the beauty front, whether in brow product must haves or in new services such as in threading. But the real story is in the look. Top NY-LA Eyebrow Specialist Elke Von Freudenberg shares her ‘DO NOT DO‘ brow looks.

            1. The round eyebrow
            Or called, “the happy eyebrow”. It borders on an almost 1/2 circle shape. This happens when the tweezer keeps trying to create more of an arch, but is not sure where it is. So they keep tweezing from underneath the eyebrow in the wrong place, creating a 1/2 circle. The round eyebrow has replaced the ‘tadpole’ eyebrow as the current most seen brow mishap.
            2. The arch in the wrong place
            Or, in most cases, the arch is too far out. This happens when the arch is created by a pencil lining up to the side of the nose to the outside iris of the eye. What happens is that the eyes actually end up looking crossed eyed (especially in photos) and too close together.
            3. The straight eyebrow
            A straight eyebrow is when the arch of the eyebrow either never existed, (rare) or too much was taken off the top of the eyebrow, which takes away the arch and creates a straight line to the eyebrow.
            4. Using stencils to create your eyebrow shape
            You really can’t do a cookie cutter approach to shaping and drawing on eyebrows. Why? Because everyone’s bone structure and eye shape is different, and your eyebrow shape really has to do with the bone that’s underneath the brow. That determines the eyebrow hairs and shape that are uniquely yours.
            5. Super cut or trimmed eyebrows
            The super cut eyebrow looks good for one day and then as it grows in, looks horrible. What happens next? You cut them again only to repeat the vicious cycle. The super cut eyebrows are cut way too short and trimmed the wrong way.
            The Model Eyebrow™ Service offers a precise eyebrow shaping every time with tweezing. With a bi-coastal clientele, Elke travels to Los Angeles, New York and Brooklyn to maintain her private celebrity and model clientele’s eyebrows. And with rave reviews already on CitySearch.com and Yelp.com, people have come in as far as San Francisco, Singapore, Chicago, and Connecticut to get Elke’s Signature Service.
