I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with my eyebrows. For the first few days after I have them 'done' it's love, the other 90% of the time it's hate. They are blonde and shapeless and grow in far too quickly. UGH.
You can catch up on my exciting adventures with my eyebrows from these posts:
HERE to read about (and see a wee video of) the torture that is threading; and
HERE to read about my salon HD Brows experience with before/after pics.
But to summarise, my eyebrows, left untamed and undyed, look like this:
Once threaded, they look like this:
Not too bad.
Once HD-ified, they look like this:
The only problem is, the tint fades so quickly and my eyebrows grow in so fast that ideally I would have them re-done every two weeks, but I clearly can't afford that. So I invested in a 'brow tidying/shaping' kit.
Ta da - Christian Semi Permanent Eyebrows in 'Taupe' (comes in other shades)
It comes with instructions, your chosen shade of wax, a double ended brush for precision or shading, and three stencils for your eyebrow shape - thin, natural and thick.
The idea is that you position the stencil over your eyebrow and shade in with the wax, which enhances your natural shape and tidies it up. I got blonde because I use this kit. once the tint fades and my eyebrows start to become unruly.
My current eyebrows without using Christian Brows:
And after using it:
The left brow has been shaded in completely using the foam end of the brush , the right brow has had 'strokes' of wax applied using the angled end of the brush.
What do you think? I like that it makes my eyebrows look a little neater, especially when I just shade them in like the brow on the left, and helps me prolong HD Brow sessions! The kit is not cheap, I got mine for £18.50 at FeelUnique, but it's probably gonna last me about five years and the wax really stays put until you remove it with makeup remover - it even stays on in the shower!
Do any of you guys have any eyebrow tips for me to keep these bushes under control? Have you tried a different brow kit? And also, have any of you tried dying your eyebrows at home??Let me know!
