Broadcasted on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey’s channel, Bill Duke’s movie had a huge success. For those who didn’t get a chance to see it, you can do it by clicking here.

Big Bold Brows

Beauty

The other day, I read an article about eyebrows in the AM NewYork. I often see People columns but rarely beauty topics. However, I found interesting information and I wanted to share it with you.

According to the consuming market research firm NPD group, the brows segment generated 122 millions $ in sales and is the fasted-growing category in the eye makeup arena with 28% sales increase in the 12 months ending in March 2014.

The trigger?

Many people believe that is the supermodel Cara Delevingne which spawned the trend. At 22 years old, the model is actually known for her prominent brows, which by the way, have their own Twitter account @eyebrow_cara.

The newspaper UKs Daily Mail thinks that Cara would be responsible for falling tweezer sales.

This is the first time I heard about an event like this in France. Actually, were not used to see a lot of afro-american movies here. I mean, in a movie theater, not on the couch. If your name is not Will Smith or Denzel Washington, its difficult.
