Brows frame the face. It adds symmetry, depth, and personality to one's facial structure---taking your look from soft and demure, to bold and defined depending on how you groom and fill your brows. For most women, brows can sometimes be a daily frustration--a constant struggle to get it looking just right to suit your makeup-of-the-day.
But for Jared Bailey, brows are a cinch. After all, when it comes to truly knowing brows and what it takes to getting it looking just right, he's the go-to brow expert of women everywhere. As Benefit Cosmetic's International Spokesperson for Global Services and a licensed aesthetician and global brow expert, Jared has made it his mission to achieve “arch” excellence for women and Benebabes around the globe.
So to get us on the path of arch-excellence, we sent our GlamAsia Editor, Becks Ko, to spend an afternoon with Jared when he recently dropped by Singapore with the #BeneSleigh all decked out and ready for the holidays.
What’s the best thing about being the International Spokesperson & Global Brow Expert for Benefit Cosmetics?
You know, I think the number one best thing is meeting people around the world. I mean, no matter (if I’m) meeting them at airports, meeting them at interviews, meeting them at brow bars… it just gives you a different perspective on life in general. This has been like the biggest thing to me. It’s like being able to meet and experience different people from different cultures.
Tell us about your most unforgettable brow revival experience.
I’ve seen a lot of – I’d call them – DIY brow disasters. I think my biggest brow ah-ha moment was… there was a woman who came in with her brows, for all intents and purposes, were a disaster. I don’t know if she had set them on fire or she over tweezed, but they were just scraps of eyebrows. So we took her on a little journey – a brow journey. And it took a matter of about three and a half (to) four months. I had to get her to promise me that she wouldn’t tweeze in between appointments or anything. And we really recreated her entire brows. I’m actually still in touch with this lady. She lives in San Francisco (and) I’ve been to her house for dinners and things like that… I changed her life!
