There's a reason the Real Housewives have such perfectly sculpted brows — their secret weapon is celebrity eyebrow stylist Joey Healy.We asked Healy to reveal the tricks he uses with the ladies, most recently Aviva Drescher of Real Housewives of New York City. Find out how you can get the perfect brow below!1. Tweeze, Never Wax“Once I starting working on Aviva's brows, she realized that tweezing is the way to go,” Joey said. “Waxing involves chemicals, can cause burns, and will ultimately break down collagen — creating unsightly wrinkles. Artistically speaking, tweezers give complete control to sculpt the brow in a hair-by-hair manner best suited to your bone structure. Additionally, chances of ingrown are highly diminished and it is a method that you can uphold at home.”2. Add Structure to Your BrowsJoey uses his Brow Structure Clear Set ($25, joeyhealy.com) to add a non-crispy, non-crunchy, pliable hold to Aviva’s brows. “Aviva’s most prominent feature is her eyes. I want to set a stage for them, so thicker shaping is ideal. I sweep her eyebrows upwards at a 45 degree angle, then use my gel to keep them in place.”3. Find Your Shade and Stick With ItAviva’s eyebrow shade is consistent — she always uses Joey’s Luxe Brow Powder in Corduroy ($28, joeyhealy.com). “It doesn’t matter if she’s sunning in St. Barths or spending a Christmas in New York — we always apply the same shade of brow powder. For her hair coloring and complexion, the Corduroy shade creates great balance and depth. Depending on the event or look, we will change her lip color or eye makeup accordingly, but never her brow shade.”
