I'm Tonya... a classically trained makeup artist, brow expert, the founder of global beauty brand The BrowGal™, a student of life and here to inspire the crap out of you. Welcome to my world.
It all began...
Tonya Crooks is a true artist with an unwavering passion for beauty that has grown into a mission – to make every eyebrow flawless. Known by her celebrity and industry following as ‘The Brow Gal,’ Tonya’s keen eye developed at a young age and burgeoned early into a career. Following her dreams, she studied fine arts at The Royal Academy of Art in London where she learned the skills and habits of a classically trained, fine artist with a particular propensity toward color.
This creative path led to a developed interest in the mastery of personal beauty, prompting her to expand her services beyond sketching and painting into the fashion world as a makeup expert on photo shoots. Tonya’s ability for treating each face as a uniquely blank canvas was quickly noticed and created steady demand from talent and colleagues for her services on and off the set. By applying her unique background in fine arts to cosmetic techniques, she garnered a reputation for perfection and precision that has lasted for more than a decade.

"I have really coarse wiry brow hairs and Tonya manages to tame them. And the espresso brow pencil helps define and add density to the outer tails where my brows had previously been over plucked as a teenager without being too opaque like some other brow pencils. "

It all started when...
After returning to the United States, Tonya began working as the Regional Beauty Director for Nordstrom growing her corporate beauty experience. She was eventually offered a position to work as an Account Executive with Make Up For Ever in Paris, where she received direct apprenticeship from Make Up For Ever founder Dany Sanz. While working backstage at Parisian fashion shows with the industry’s top models, Tonya realized that many of the runway’s best needed help to groom and maintain their eyebrows – which were often overlooked.

Featured in publications, television shows and media outlets around the world, she is internationally recognized as a leading brow expert in her industry. When it comes to eyebrow correction, creation and maintenance with a VIP experience, Tonya Crooks is the only Brow Gal you will ever need.
