Eyebrows can make or break your summer look

All it takes is 15 minutes and you can get a whole new look.

We're not talking about your thighs or your stomach, wrinkles or lines. We're talking about you're eyebrows and how they look can change your face entirely.

Dominque Williams looks forward to this visit because in 15 minutes, she'll come away with a look she loves. And it's all about her eyebrows.

"Brows are so important because they make or break a face," says Eliza Petrsecu, of Eliza's Eyes.

And she should know. She's been shaping eyebrows for decades.

"When you look at the eyes, the brows are the frame," she added.

And that frame has got to work with the face. So she starts by snipping the long hairs, and then applying slim strips of wax both below and above the brows. And off it comes.

She works on men too, who she says, all need some grooming. That can make a difference especially since men don't wear make up.

And during the summer months, when you sweat more, women tend to wear less make up themselves, so that's why a well shaped brow becomes an asset, poolside or at the beach.

Once Eliza waxes and plucks any strays, she fills in with some pencil. Hers is water-resistant so you won't sweat or swim it off. And for women in their 20s, very full brows are in.

But whether it's full or just polished, it's all about putting your best face forward.

It costs 128 dollars to have Eliza do your brows. She also sells a kit you can use at home to keep them groomed. The kit is $99.

Eliza's Eyes is located at 30 East 76th Street. Call 1-800-EYE-BROW to schedule an appointment.
