Benefit Brow Bar Review

The last time that I got my eyebrows waxed was almost a year ago, and after I got them done I wanted to hide away in shame. I was left looking a little bit like Marlene Dietrich, but only she can pull off super skinny brows. As strange as it sounds I decided to grow them out and then maintain myself, which I did up until June when I gave up and just let them go crazy, so please excuse the horrific state of them in the before picture. I'd heard so much about Benefit Brow Bars and decided that I needed to make an appointment with my local one ASAP.

Before

The first thing that happened, and that surprised me because I was only booked in for a tint and wax, was that one of the lovely make up girls told me that the first thing that they did was have a chat to you about your make up. Firstly she put some of their 'That Gal Brightening Face Primer' on and, after I cheekily asked about it, some 'Porefessional' primer on my t-zone. Porefessional was amazing, she showed me how it filled in my pores to make them disappear before she applied the foundation and I was really impressed, I even caved in and bought a tube of it. I have a really hard time finding foundation that works for me because I'm really pale so she used Ivory, the lightest shade in their 'Hello Flawless Foundation' range. The coverage was really impressive and combined with the two primers my skin looked great but I still felt that it was a tad too dark for my skin tone. I did an outfit post on the day that I had it done so you can see the results of my make up here.

When it came time to have my eyebrows done they sat me down and explained where the three points of your eyebrow (start, arch and end) should be. The start of your eyebrow should be aligned with the side of your nose and you can see in the photos that the eyebrow on the left isn't quite there yet (boo!) so there wasn't anything that they could do about that. I was asked what colour I'd like them tinted and I opted for the lightest brown because I have blonde hair and as much as I love dark brows I think they'd look a little odd on me. After this came the moment of truth; the wax. I'm being completely honest when I say that I didn't feel a thing, and considering the lovely woman tamed my slugs she must have took off an incredible amount of eyebrow hair. When it was all over I was passed on to another make up girl who used their Boi-ing concealer to cover up any redness and then coloured them in using Brow Zings, which I luckily already had myself. I do think that she put the Brow Zings on a little heavily because I've coloured them in using the same kit myself ever since and they've never come out looking like the after picture.

After
Overall I'd definitely recommend going to a Brow Bar. I'm really pleased with how my brows turned out. It cost £18 for a wax and tint which isn't too bad considering how they came out, it's only a little more than I used to pay at the old place that I went to. All of the girls there were lovely and really helpful which is always a bonus and just makes you want to go back. I plan on attempting to just maintain them for the time being but if they ever get out of control again I'll definitely go running to Benefit!
