2 weeks moved into our new home in California and I scheduled a brow appointment. Read more about our move here.
Not just any appointment. My make-up artist Morgan Grimes suggested I get a brow tint and shape. I got a lot of questions about my experience yesterday, so I wrote about it below.
What is a brow tint and shape?
The brow artist essentially color “tints” your brows a desired color, I chose a shade darker than my hair color but you can discuss this with your brow artist ahead of time. Along with tinting my brows a darker shade to make them look “colored in,” she also shaped my brows. First, she outlined them, like a stencil and showed me how they looked before she went in to wax and pluck them. Since I recently used retinol products on my face, she suggested that we tweeze the hairs at the top of my brows, since waxing after retinol can thin the skin. I had no idea!
I can’t remember the last time I had my brows shaped. She went a shade darker than my hair and shaped my brows using waxing method (at the lower part of my brows) and tweezing on the top portion of my brows. My right eyebrow has been thicker and making my right eye more hooded, so I knew that I needed a professional to even them out. Keep in mind, your brows are supposed to look like cousins, not twins. Around 30 min later, I felt like Brooke Shields with a new set of brows. Knowing that I have 5 kids and barely any time for myself most days, you girls know I’ll gladly take any shortcuts. I’ll see her in 6 weeks and look forward to that nice quiet time laying flat on her table without any child asking me to cut their apple or help with homework. When was the last time you got your brows done?
