If you’re a card-carrying member of the budget-beauty crusade, then you know that it doesn’t take a lot to look fab. But, does knowing that the U.S. economy is bouncing back after seeing a significant spike in employment numbers inspire you to spend more money on your beauty routine or will you stay the course and save your extra dollars and buy that one product that highlights your best facial feature?
Case in point…

Gospel-singing diva Yolanda Adams and the unfortunate loser of last week’s HKI’s Beauty Wars is no stranger to looking fierce. As you know, a well-shaped brow is paramount to framing your eye and Ms. Adams has embraced a fuller, more defined brow.
