As I've mentioned countless times, I'm plagued with rubbish eyebrows; partly through my own doing and partly just naturally.. I had a bit of a disaster with a HD Brows rip off last year so I decided to treat myself to a trip to the Benefit Brow bar in Meadowhall; I'd seen all the Benebabes with their admirable arches and I just had to try it out because I don't think I've ever had a proper brow arch.
Here are the before pictures:
Pretty shapeless, light coloured, bits sticking out everywhere, mono-brow kinda eyebrows... not attractive in the slightest.
The Benefit Brow bar experience is really quite nice; better than any salon eyebrow experience I've ever had! Basically one of the brow experts will sit you down and 'Map' your brows, asking what you'd like yours to look like and they'll try their best to do it for you. I personally didn't want really oddly dark eyebrows because I'm blonde, I asked for a decent arch and just a general tidy up.
So my lovely Benebabe, Amy, did all that for me and checked that it was ok before she sat me at the brow bar. Instead of using the dark tint she mixed the light and dark together to get a shade more suited to my face and hair, before applying she put the some vaseline on the skin around my brows and then she popped the tint on for 2 minutes. I've just had a thought, this might not have been in the right order but I'm just trying to give you an idea of what its like.
The tint was then wiped away and the waxing and tweezing commenced. Before she applied the wax she tested it on my palm to make sure it wasn't too hot for me and then she began working her magic; there's no escaping the fact that waxing/tweezing flipping hurts, but for whatever reason this process doesn't seem to hurt as much, whether its the wax or the technique I don't know!
Once she'd shown me the finished product (which I was obviously over the moon with) she popped some Boi-ing concealer on just to reduce some of the redness. And this is what they looked like...
What do you think? I absolutely love them and although it takes me like 40 minutes to get to my nearest Benefit Brow Bar I consider it totally worth it! It's £18 which is a little bit more than some salons, but again... Totally worth it!!! If you do want to try it out you can look for your nearest Brow Bar online and get the phone number to book; although booking isn't always essential I think it's best to do so to avoid disappointment!
Have you tried Benefit Brow Bars? If not will you be?
