You know when something is trending when they have their own phrase like “eyebrows on fleek”. With every trend though, there’s the good, the bad and the ugly. The good is that everyone’s paying attention to their eyebrows (even guys!), the bad is that some people pay too much attention to eyebrows and that’s when it turns ugly – when you remove too much hair and then you forget about an eyebrow is supposed to look like and you end up with something like this.
Even if you haven’t severely murdered your eyebrows but you’re looking for a fuller shape or darker fill, you might be interested in knowing about eyebrow sculpting gel. Winks Eyelash Boutique, located in Yorkville, Toronto, is brows obsessed. They offer different services to get your #BrowGameStrong including Semi Permanent Textured Gel. This innovative gel is applied directly to the skin to either mimic hair strokes or brushed on for a makeup effect – plus it lasts for about four weeks! So you can stop colouring in your eyebrows every morning and wake up looking a little more flawless every morning.
I’ve never really had a problem with my eyebrows but I’d never pass down the opportunity to step up my brow game. I get my eyebrows threaded and never had to colour them in so I was pleasantly surprised to see what a difference a little bit of shading in can do – I honestly feel like it changed my face a little bit (for the better, of course). However, I made a few mistakes after my first treatment but hopefully you can learn from them and make your treatment last.
Mistake: I got my brows done the day before a huge event (in this case it was our cover shoot with Marianas Trench). You shouldn’t wash your face for 24 hours after the treatment so that the gel can settle well.
Solution: Book your appointment a few days before a big event and arrive with no makeup on.
Mistake: I use oil based cleansing products so every time I took a swipe on my eyebrows, it probably removed a bit of the gel.
Solution: If oil based makeup remover is your thing then be a little more cautious when removing makeup around your brows.
Remembering that it’s semi-permanent gel, the gel will come off on it’s own.
A before and after shot of my eyebrows. It seriously makes a difference!
