Hi ladies, I decided to write about picking “The Right RTWM Look” for the everyday woman’s look that can transform from day to evening.  You may not know it is very hard for me being a glam lady on the go with the multiple jobs being tasked as a CEO and Hostess of Real Talk with Monica in addition to attending online graduate school at Grand Canyon University for my Ph.D. in Business Management. Therefore, I wanted to share some of my favorite beauty tips, techniques and products to help my RTWM fans out. Check out more of my articles only on That’s Real Talk!


First, I want to talk about making sure about getting the perfect eyebrow arch. Normally, I go to my favorite nail location “Lady Nails” on 2911 Williamsburg Road, in Richmond, Virginia 23231, to get the perfect RTWM eyebrow arch as well my Shellac manicure and pedicure. In selecting the perfect RTWM eyebrow arch, I have the nail technician to perform the desired High Arch Brow.


Example: High Arch Brow

Please note: The following information provided on waxing is not a paid advertisement it’s just helpful tips for anyone looking to know about waxing at their preferable or desirable professional service location. I highly recommend that if you are seeking a professional waxing salon that you use a professional esthetician or cosmetology license individual that is required to professionally apply wax to skin. Nail technicians who only have a manicuring license won’t be permitted to do waxing.

What to expect at a typical waxing salon?

All of these questions should be asked by your esthetician or cosmetology licensed technician into before he or she starts waxing away.

  • First comes the consultation.
  • Do you want a pronounced arch or straight shape?
  • Full brows or thinner ones?

For ladies, like me that have brows are on the bushier side, they may need to be combed and trimmed with scissors before waxing.  Next, your brow technician will cleanse the skin along the eyebrow area and (apply a powder) to prevent the wax from clinging to sensitive skin area. He or she will apply the wax and adhere a strip to the area. Once the wax has cooled, the esthetician will rip off the strip quickly. Finally, he or she will use a wax cleanser to remove any residue and apply an aloe solution to soothe the skin.

Cost of Eyebrow Waxing

Typically, a very popular waxing service for eyebrow grooming can cost you between $10 to 21 dollars. Unless, you’re Oprah Winfrey’s eyebrow guru Anastasia Soare of Anastasia Beverly Hills. In Anastasia’s Beverly Hills salon, eyebrow shaping service starts at $45.00 to $55.00.

Average Price Range: $10-21

Estimated Time of Service: 10-20 minutes

Important RTWM Reminder: Anytime you wax the face, and especially the eyebrows, you need to ask your client a lot of questions before you start. If they had botox in the eye area within the last 72 hours, you can disrupt the botox under the skin and cause bruising. Also, if a client is on Acutane or has just received a facial with alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), her skin may not be as strong and can be injured during the waxing.

Examples: Mary Kay’s Nourishine plus lip gloss  


I became a lover of Mary Kay’s Lip gloss due primarily to Vera Spencer-Gray, Mary Kay Independent Sales Director in Mechanicsville, Virginia. I can remember just like yesterday when I attended Vera’s open house event on a Saturday in December of 2014. When I walked in the doors of the Pink Studio lounge in Mechanicsville, Virginia, I didn’t realize that I became a fan of “Harmony “ and “ Berry Dazzle” vibrant Nourishine plus lip gloss. Mary Kay advertises that  Nourishine plus lip gloss gives a brilliant shine and an instant boost of moisture that leaves lips feeling nourished. In addition, Nourishine plus lip gloss is loaded with good-for-you ingredients, smooths, protects and conditions lips.

Yes, I’m a fan of wearing Shellac Nail Polish because its gives me a long lasting perfect manicure look that won’t peel or get a chipped nail in only a few days like a typical nail polish. Therefore, when I visit my favorite nail salon. I always asked for shellac nail polish because it’s better than gel polish and acts like a shield to protect your natural nails so you can grow them as long as you want.

What is Shellac manicures?

“Shellac,” a technology invented by Creative Nail Design, is similar to a gel manicure in that it also uses UV light to cure each coat. Shellac manicures can be simply described as a gel manicure like a coat of colored “gel” (that looks like nail polish) is applied to the nails. When the nail technician applies shellac polish, a base coat is first apply followed by two coats of Shellac, and then a top coat to finish.  After each coat, you put your hands under a UV light to cure (dry) the shellac polish one minute per hand twice.
