Key Takeaways:

"I love Karen Betts' eyebrow guides. When she first came out with these measurement guides, I was like, 'Genius; this is amazing! I had bought these other little sticks on strips that were like triple the price and nowhere near as good because they didn't form around the eyes." - April Meese

"I really do love these tiny little tweezers. And I love that you can give them to your client after you use them. It's just like a little gift." - April Meese

"I know some people like a heavy handpiece, I've had heavier machines, and I really liked the Bellar because there's very little vibration. And I like that and I like that it also is a very light handpiece." - April Meese

"Just love what I call brow definers which helps draw brows really natural fine detail strokes of brow hair." - Karen Betts

"I learned many, many years ago never to pluck your client's eyebrows before getting the 'okay' from the client. I'll always block them out first with a tool, a cream pencil." - Karen Betts

"I just use blue tack to keep my pigment pot in a secure place." - Vicky Martin

"I use double-sided tape. I can put them on my tray and then put all of my inkpots, and then they stick so they don't move around." - Dawna Maynard

"What I normally do is, I put a lump of Vaseline in the middle of the chest, and I mix in a little bit of anesthetic in with it as well so that I can just keep because I use the anesthetic to take the redness away from the areola and so that I can see the color." - Vicky Martin

"I have to say that Mary Ritcherson brow pencils are the best pencils that I've used because it's actually a reminder that I can't live without them." - Shauna Magrath

"I also really love working with my headlamp. That's something that I can't work without. And string; I love using string when I'm working to check my measurement." - Charlotte Duke
