A History of my Eyebrows
I’ve done everything to my eyebrows from waxing, plucking, threading and dying. I first got my eyebrows shaped at a Benefit Waxing counter which wasn’t at all painful, like I had imagined. I was curious though so I tried threading. I won’t lie, I found the threading painful for a while but that’s been my preferred course of action. I used The Body Shop for a while which cost €12 and they were great. My obsession with eyebrows led me to to The Brow Artist a few months ago. It was a hefty cost at €45 but my eyebrows looked amazing and that really sparked my obsession with my brows. The girls work some serious magic over there especially with their 18-24 Month Brows and fixing any past mistakes. At the moment I get them threaded at Beauty With Grace in Wexford Town which costs €10 for the threading and tinting-Grace does a really lovely job on them!
Getting a proper shape on your eyebrows is half the battle. I think that it’s a good investment to go get them shaped by a professional. I know, I know you probably think that you are doing an awesome job yourself but you haven’t lived until you get them done properly! I get mine done every 3-4 months and in the meantime I maintain them myself with my trusty tweezers and by threading them myself. I taught myself how to do basic threading via the wonders of YouTube. I advise threading over waxing as it’s so much safer for your skin and you get a better shape. Waxing removes some of the collagen in your skin each time you wax which you’ll regret in years to come.
For a long time I only got my eyebrows shaped because I’m so fair I was terrified to colour them. It was a big mistake. I stopped being afraid of colour after Lorna at The Brow Artist got hold of them and showed me what I was missing. Since then I’ve been a women obsessed. I’ve always tinted my own eyelashes black because they’re white, which I do using a lash tint that I bought from a local beauty suppliers, but Boots and most chemists sell similar kits. I now top up my eyebrows with the brown dye.
