They say to never let someone with bad brows tell you anything about life. I don’t exactly know who “they” are, but as an avid brow advocate, I would have to agree with them.
The summer after 8th grade, I tweezed the crap out of my brows. Those skinny twig brows were all the rage, and despite my father’s best efforts, I continued to over pluck. Well, Dad, you were right, because I’ve regretted it ever since. Not just because full brows are all the rage, but because full brows are all the rage because they’re GORGEOUS. What I’d give to go back and slap the tweezers out of my 15-year-old hand. What a fool. So, now instead of having lush brows, I spend 5 minutes in the mirror every morning slapping some kind of brow crayon or stick or powder on my arches praying to the beauty gods that I don’t look like a complete fool when I walk out into actual real life. I kinda figured I was on my own, haphazardly filling in my eyebrows until the end of time – can people really grow out their eyebrows? Does it really work? And then I was introduced to European Wax Center®.
The reservation itself was simple enough and didn’t take that long. The expert trimmed, waxed, and then unearthed the new European Wax Center® products. THIS is what changed my brow game and to be honest, I’ll never go back.
Right after my eyebrows were shaped, she applied Renew Me Restoring Serum, which helped with soothing my skin and calming my redness. This took a different spin on a refreshed face and elevated it to a new level! The best part? The actual brow beauty products. With products straight from the European Wax Center®, Strut 365 ™ gives guests the opportunity to continue their in-Center experience, every day, through the new collections: Strut Smoothly, Strut Lavishly, and Strut Boldly. Whether you’re searching for something to maintain your skin in between waxes or something to achieve daily Browfection™ with, there is something in this collection for everyone.
The Browfection Brow Powder Duo is what really sets the stage. If you’re not filling in your brows every day, you need to do some serious reflection and then go purchase this brow powder duo; out with the pencils and the stencils – this powder is the most natural option I’ve tried. It’s two-toned; the lighter side is for the inside of your brow, and the darker is for lining the arch. Of course, you blend the two, and you’ll master it in time. But it’s more natural and forgiving than any kind of pencil I’ve tried. Next step: the Oh My Brow! Brow Highlighter. I like to put this on right under by arch and on my brow bone, then use a flat, rounded concealer brush to perfect it. This helps lift the arch and cleans up any small mistakes you absolutely didn’t make because you’re pro status. Right? Finally, finish with the Ready. Set. Brow! Perfect Brown Groomer. A few light strokes over your brows will set them (apply like mascara). Do not try to brush the gel out once they’re set. This will create a flaky mess (I learned from tutorial experience). What you do after you’ve perfected your brows is your own business; whether you choose to continue with a full face of makeup or just apply a few swipes of mascara, with maintained brows, the world is your oyster.
