There have been several ‘brow trends’ over the years with the worst offender being the over plucked brow! The most beautiful brows are the natural, big and bold brows.
Brows frame your eyes and really can be your best feature. To quote Jack Black “You should never underestimate the power of the brow!”
Thin brows tend to make you look older, and too much of an arch can leave you looking permanently startled. Brows that are too heavy can make your eyes look hooded and tired.
It can take up to 4 months or more for you to grow back your brow, so be patient, use the tips below and start your fabulous brow journey …..
How to get the best from your brows:
Suzi White Weddings offers Bridal Hair and Make-up in addition to a customised Bride-to-be Skin Gym and Brow Program at Suzi White’s renowned Northern Beaches studio.
Here are your top tips and tricks for Makeup, Hair & Skin for your Big Day! Xx
“Crikey! I’m getting hitched….HELP!”
Don’t panic! The first thing to do is take a breath, smile and start to feel excited about your life ahead and the day you will start that new chapter of your life
“OK, so I’m getting married in 7 months time. What do I need to do and when do I need to start doing it?”
Use the most of this amazing place we live in! Get out there in the sunshine (protect your skin with a good sunscreen), take in the fresh air, exercise and eat beautiful nourishing foods from our plentiful supply at Farmers Markets, cafes and restaurants. This will get your skin off to a great start – what we do to the inside, shows on the outside…..
Specifically, get your Skin Glow on! Come in for an Oxygen Facial to set things going and let us tailor a skin programme just for you. We will combine in house sessions along with do-it-yourself home top-ups to keep your budget moving and your skin performing
Prep your Brows. If you want these beauties to look their best (and therefore frame your face in just the right way), then start your Hollywood Brow programme 4 months before your wedding day. This will give you time to grow, nurture and get your brows in glorious shape
Decide what you’d like from your Hair. Do you need to grow it out, change the colour, have extensions? Talk to us about your preferred look and styles and we can help inspire you with some great ideas. In the meantime, treat yourself to a hot oil treatment, scalp massage or a hair repair quick fix to get you started.
Finally, we need to talk Make-Up. Whether you want a sun kissed natural beach look, a 1920’s inspired feel or a full strong bold look, we can create something that works for you and have a play around with themes and colour at your make-up trial session.
“Time is precious and it feels like there is a LOT of organizing to do. How do I stop from stressing and make sure I focus on the important stuff”
On your first meeting with us, we will set you up a package that covers all the areas you need to get you in the best shape possible with our Bride-to-be Skin Gym and Brow Program. This could be a fortnightly, monthly or two-visit package depending on your needs and goals. Like any gym program you need to commit and we will be your awesome training team to get you the results you want.
“OK, I’m feeling calmer, bring on the inspiration!”
First off, check out the Gorgeous March Brides for some fantastic make-up hints and tips – especially the lippy!

Two: Be prepared! Ask yourself what you want on your day and start pulling together your ideas. Set a Pinterest board up or get the glue out and stick your favourite images on a mood and inspiration board. Bring it along when you come and meet us.
Three: Remember that this is the beginning … set yourself up for success for your married life ahead. Invest in your body and well being now and let your work and commitment shine through
Some of you will have met the lovely Eden who works from our Avalon HQ. Being the amazing chick she is, she has allowed us to share her story with you.
Eden has suffered from cystic acne and super sensitive skin for many years and has been on quite a journey in trying to get on top of these issues.
Eden skin issues were caused from hormonal imbalances and a lack of understanding of how she could help herself with the correct home care regime. With a lot of conflicting advise out there, she was given incorrect informationregarding her acne and she couldn't conquer her breakouts.
After being prescribed heavy acne medication, which came with many side effects and sickness, she took on a new skin journey. She started to listen to her body and understand her triggers, especially what foods affected her and what products caused a reaction. She has been working with Sarah, who continues to educate Eden on all things “skin” and the results are impressive!
These photos show the results of Eden’s Cosmedix skin care journey and we now have one very happy gal working on our team. The results are from 4 x customised treatments and 2 x Cosmedix Deep Sea Peels.
Amazing results in only a few sessions.
The Power Of Cosmedix!

Start off your Makeup with your favorite moisturiser, I am using Cosmedix's Rescue +
I have primed my face with Curtis collection's radiant glow illuminator in " Pink diamond drops"
The foundation I used in my tutorial is Melli Cosmetic's Custom Skin Foundation, I have used a dry makeup sponge to apply my foundation for a bit of a heavier coverage, for a lighter, sheerer coverage wet your sponge and squeeze excess water out with a towel and apply your foundation with your damp sponge.
Stipple ( Pat-Roll-Dab ) over the places you need extra coverage, use little amounts of product at a time, use foundation over eyelids.
Concealer goes on after foundation and only in the places its needed ( Undereye, spots, redness )
Use your finger to blend concealer into foundation and for a heavier coverage us a synthetic concealer brush.
The concealers I have used in the video are Ellis Fass and Clinique's smoothing line concealer.
The brush I used is the Synthetic Tappered Concealer by Designer Brushes available in studio.

Lets talk about facials, why is it that people see Facials as a high maintenance, woman only zone?
Facials are the same as having a mechanic work on your car or getting trained by a PT- they know more about the subject and can do it better than you can!
More than ladies, Men actually need facials! Thanks to whom ever or what ever created us Men have coarser skin, larger pores and an increased chance of sun damage. ( Most Men are lazy with skin care and most likely sun care too )
Why is there such a feminine bubble around having your skin looked at by a professional and understanding and being educated on what your skin wants and NEEDS!
The continuous drag of a razor over the sensitive facial skin causes grazes, redness and inflammation which unfortunately isn't fixed with soap and water.
Men suffer from acne, dehydration, fine lines and scarring just like many do, so why do men feel its not for me? or that taking care of your skin is gender specific. take control and start your skin routine.
"Its just like taking your skin to the gym"
At the Hollywood Brows HQ we're introducing "The Man Facial" no salon slippers or random vegetable placed on your eyes, just a 45 minute appointment where your skin will be analysed, cleaned, exfoliated and your skin concerns will be targeted.!
Our "Skin Doc" Sarah works with 1st grade, high performance athletes and On Tuesdays she is here specially for you.
Its that time again where I have discovered or re- discovered products that I absolutely LOVE.
With the crazy Sydney weather I have needed intense hydration for my face and lips!
A new brow product that may actually save lives, and a Lip colour that I have been reaching for all month.
Lets start off with skin care, Cosmedix's Emulsion - Intense moisturiser, provides deep and lasting hydration with liquid crystals and shea butter to quench dry skin, great for all skin types, I don't recommend wearing it under foundation as I noticed the product would ball up, a fantastic night moisturiser to go over your unique serums.
Curtis Collections Brow Styler may be one of the best brow pencils I have ever used, it creates fine hair like strokes for a natural, fuller looking brow. Smudge proof and up to 10 hours of wear.
Available in Blonde, Brunette and Deep Brunette.
Do you struggle filling your eyebrows in once your tint has faded??
I have been absolutely loving the Curtis Collection eyebrow creme!
The luxurious, multi tasking product glides on to skin and hair smoothly, blending seamlessly and creating the most natural looking brows. An all in one stand out formula. Brows stay in place for hours of wear.
This smudge proof product is available in 3 shades.
Start filling your brows in at the front use your brush the same way your hair grows- at the front of the brow the hairs grow upwards, you then move on to underneath making sure you have a straight line from the front of the brow to the peak, this opens up the eye area.
Move to the top of the arch and use your brush down to finish off the brow.
It's that simple!
