I know ya’ll think the title of today’s post is genius.
There is nothing better than ending your bank holiday weekend with a cup of hot chocolate whilst writing a blog post. It was a good weekend too. I went to see the new Big Bang Comics store. I am a big fan of those lads and was delighted to see them move to a bigger unit. They needed it. I also went to see Antman AND Jurrasic World. Seriously good movies. Highly recommended.
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post on my eyebrows because I have gotten them done for the first time in a year and I feel like a new woman. I always go to Benefit’s Brow Bar in Arnotts in Dublin. I normally get a wax and tint. I go for the tint because there are days I might not wear make up, or when I am at the gym, and it is nice to have a bit of colour on my brows. One of the main reasons I consistently return to Benefit is because my natural brow shape is very similar to their signature brow arch so their process works well for me. Of course finding a brow artist is something that takes time and Benefit may not be the place to suit you so I recommend trying a few places and methods until you find one you are happy with,
I have also been using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow pomade now I have tamed my brows. I have been trying to find a brand that does a pomade I could buy in Ireland and I had no luck. i had heard the ABH pomade was good though, if not a bit pricey. Elysian Brows on South William Street popped up in my searches as stocking the pomade so I went over to them for a chat and to get myself kitted out. I got the pomade in chocolate which is a medium to dark shade and also picked up the Anastasia Beverly Hills number 12 brush which is a dual ended eyebrow brush with an angled brush at one end and a spoolie at the other. Altogether I spent €55 on the two but I must say it is worth it. I have been using the product for almost two weeks and have barely made a dint in it and I use it every day. You need very little product as it gives a lot of coverage and also the brush is the perfect tool for application. An added bonus is that you can wash the brush and get a very long time out of it. Check out my before and after pictures below. You can check Elysian Brows out here.
I realise my brows may not have been entirely ‘on fleek’ today as I was in a rush, you can see them in better form on instagram, but you get an idea of the product anyway. I highly recommended.
On Wednesday I will be working on judging the Health and Wellbeing category for Blog Awards Ireland so instead of a post from me I will be featuring my next “how I am spending my summer” piece from Jade Rebecca over at https://edgyandelegant.wordpress.com/.
