Just over two years ago i did this post about my first ever experience at a Benefit brow bar. It was one of (and still is) my most popular posts to date so i thought after 25 months i'd give you a little update. I am also going to do an eyebrow story at some point so keep an eye out for that!
This is me before my brow journey, and then after my first appointment where Adele showed how she wanted the end brow goal was.
Look at those god awful brows to begin with! I dont know what i was ever thinking but honestly this may sound over the top but booking in at Benefit is one of the best things i have ever done!
I am still going to Benefit for my eyerbows waxing, however i now visit the lovely Joelle in the Leeds City Centre Debenhams store and have been doing so for the past few months now. She is amazing and an absolute god send when it comes to brows and i have no need whatsoever to go elsewhere! I still go once a month and make it a little pay day treat although i don't get them tinted anymore, i just have a wax which is £11.50, an absolute bargain if you ask me.
If you can remember from my first post my eyebrows were absolutely shocking, over plucked, thin and in dire need of much attention. There was no arch, more of just a curve. Benefit worked wonders on them, tinted the fine hairs, waxed what they could, told me what to grow and filled them in to an amazing shape. After the first appointment i pretty much just grew and grew my eyebrows (pretty much one of the worst months of my life, even concealer (and lots of it!) wasn't covering those bad boys) but in the end it gave them lots to work with and helped perfect the perfect Benefit brow arch.
So i kind of wanted to show you where i was at now brow wise. I had my brows waxed on Thursday and these pictures are from yesterday so 4 days later. As you can see with and without product in, i have started with a lot more hair than i had before and there is a definite arch. Even now, they still map your brows each visit, showing where they should start, arch and end even after all these months and just take so much care before, during and after your brows have been waxed, including applying creams and concealer afterwards to help with redness.
As you can probably tell, above is my brow with no product just combed through and below is my brow filled in with the Benefit Brow zings powder in dark mixed with a little bit of the wax. What a difference two years makes hey?
The ladies at Benefit do such a marvelous job and i honestly wouldn't go anywhere else. I recommend them to absolutely everybody i come across and have even converted lots of my friends to give them a whirl!
As always, thank you for reading! And if you haven't already, get your brows booked in at a Benefit counter! You can thank me later!
