Fall brings about so many of my favorite things: cooler temperatures, pumpkin-flavored everything, and cute new autumn outfits. But along with the new season, I always feel the need to refresh my look, and this fall my favorite accessory is bold, beautiful brows. After all, eyebrows are a girl’s best friend, right?
I am so thrilled to partner with European Wax Center® for this post, because they’re my all-time favorite place to get my brows done.
Years ago, I used to have my brows plucked or threaded, but I found that to be way too time-consuming and painful for me to keep up on a regular basis. (Seriously, that stuff hurts!) My sensitive skin didn’t react well to threading. That’s when a friend recommended I get my eyebrows waxed instead and I haven’t looked back since.
Last week I took a trip to my local European Wax Center® to have my eyebrows waxed, and my experience was fantastic. If you’ve never been, you need to make a reservation ASAP, because my esthetician completely upped my brow game and put me on the path to #browfection.
My esthetician took plenty of time to explain the process to me and look at the shape of my brows to determine what shape would best frame my face.
I was so surprised that that I had absolutely the least amount of pain I have ever experienced during a brow wax. I was in and out in less than 20 minutes, but didn’t feel rushed at all.
During my reservation, they also took the time to explain and give me a few eyebrow makeup pointers using the Strut Boldly™ eyebrow collection, eyebrow products from the European Wax Center®’s product portfolio, Strut 365 ™.
I find that I need several eyebrow makeup products to give me the full, bold look I’ve been obsessing over.
First, I start by outlining and filling in my brows with Browfection™ Brow Powder Duo using the Brow Pals Dual-Ended Brow Brush. My eyebrows were left with a really nice shape after my wax, but they do need filled in a bit, and this powder does the trick.
After that, I brush my eyebrows straight up and then go over them with Ready., Set., Brow!,™ Perfect Brow Groomer, which is a really nice gel to keep the hairs in place throughout the day.
What really takes the eyebrow look to the next level though is the Oh My Brow! ™ Highlighter. I smudge a little bit on the arch of my eyelid and it makes the whole look pop!
The Strut Boldly™ products keep me feeling confident in my eyebrow game until my next wax.
The best eyebrow advice I’ve ever been given is that your eyebrows are sisters, not twins! No two eyebrows are alike, and it’s perfectly natural for your eyebrows to be a little different from each other. Don’t worry too much about making them look identical, because they never will. Just work with what you have and concentrate on giving them a similar shape. Rock your brows with confidence, girls!
