Damone RobertsEyebrow Guru
Damone Roberts has undoubtedly raised more than a few eyebrows, in the best way possible. Beginning as a makeup artist, Damone turned a passion for “the most important part of the face” (the eyebrows, of course) into a full-blown beauty brand that now includes not just the range of tools needed to sculpt the perfect arch, but also less expected items such as candles (Damone’s favorite scent: the new “Cassandra”). Never one to settle for just his current level of success, Damone recently signed on to be the well-browed face of TheLookBag.com, a member-based site that allows women to try out a selection of beauty products before deciding to purchase them. Alan Mruvka, creator of E! Entertainment Network and founder of the Look Bag, enlisted Damone to represent the concept and is incorporating Damone Roberts products—such as brow highlighters and gels—into the bag’s beauty bevy.
