Ten places in Fairfield County to get beautiful brows and lashes
This summer avoid make-up meltdowns and achieve a naturally gorgeous look with perfectly arched brows and long, flirty lashes with a little help from Fairfield County’s top lash and brow specialists.
Benefit’s beauty experts are trained in the art of Brow Mapping, their exclusive technique of determining the perfect brow shape for any face. Go from sparse to spectacular with the “triple glammy” - begin with a brow and lash tint to make eyes pop, wax to create a sexy arch, and finish with a professional shaping. Maintain your look with “Gimmie Brow” their volumizing brow gel that promises fuller brows in a flash.
