An Australian eyebrow-artist named Sharon-Lee Hamilton was flown from Sydney to Los Angeles to make sure the celebs looked camera-ready for the 89th annual Academy Awards on Sunday night. The Independent reports:
Hamilton’s website states that the treatment includes: “A full face read, followed by an all-inclusive service that comprises any tints, stains or lightening required in conjunction with your full expert shaping.
“Included is an eyelash tint as well as a glycolic infused collagen eye treatment plus a full heated paraffin hand treatment followed by a light eye makeup application.”
The artist kept her client list for Sunday night's big event discreet, but her work has been seen on the likes of "Beyoncé, George Clooney, Kim Kardashian, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Serena Williams and Princess Mary of Denmark." We don't doubt her plucking is worth the thousands of dollars it undoubtedly cost for her to travel across the earth. But we're so over celebrities constantly lamenting everyone else's carbon footprint... especially as they globe-trot around the world to make their speeches on the subject.
Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the most outspoken advocates for Mother Gaia, is estimated to "emit up to 418.4 tons of C02 this year because of his globe-trotting. The average American emits 19 tons a year." In other words, Hollywood A-Listers have a private jet problem and they have a hypocrisy problem. If they want to pay an eyebrow artist to wax, pluck, or enhance their brows before a big event, more power to them. But excuse us regular folk if their eco-lecturing only causes us to raise our eyebrows in disbelief.
