This lovely lady who is 60 next week came to me to have her brows shaped and tinted (I know she seriously doesn’t look nearly 60!!) Although the full defined eyebrows are very trendy at the moment they really aren’t for everyone. You need to apply a full face of make-up every day to match the look really and often run the risk of making your brows look like drawn on Lego. Not everyone’s personality suits them.

This lady’s natural brows are extremely fair and very sparse. She has been trimming them at home, so they are also slightly shorter then I would like them. However, she has promised to leave me to do them now on. For this treatment I tinted the brows with brown tint leaving it on the brows for around 2 minutes, then I shaped them with threading. If you know me you will know that I much prefer threading over waxing for eyebrows as I find I get better results as I can blend out the hair removal. Sometimes with waxing, you are often left with a very clear area which the hairs have been removed. After threading for eyebrows I applied witch hazel to close the pores. Then leaving application of the make-up until last. It’s much easier to do this with the client sitting up.

As this lady already has the Bodyshop brow kit shade o1, I thought I would try the 02 shade. I used the lighter colour in the palette. I think these brows really suit this lady’s personality and shape her face lovely. At this appointment, I also tinted her eyelashes, so she can go swimming on holiday without the stress of having panda eyes!

With time hopefully more eyebrow hairs will grow, so I can create a slightly thicker brow at her next appointment. Also by not trimming them, they will look fuller.
