Makeup, beauty products, and all that jazz is secondary to perhaps the single most important aspect of one’s face: eyebrows. Because brows truly shape and play a crucial role in one’s facial expressions, I firmly believe in the importance of maintaining them in whichever way possible. While everyone does things a little differently when it comes to maintenance (some wax, some pencil-in, while some simply brush them daily), I wanted to share with you my personal grooming routine for keeping my brows defined!
I like to take one day out of the week to go to the mall when I’m here in Massachusetts. During this time, I try to either get in some me time as I browse the shops, or else catch up with a friend. Without fail, however, one task that I must complete every 2-3 weeks is getting my eyebrows threaded at The Threading Spa inside of Natick Mall.
While they have a variety of services, from lash and brow tinting, to lash extensions, lash lifting, and waxing, I feel the most comfortable just going there and getting the plain eyebrow threading service for my brows. I’ve always grown up with the phrase “as natural as possible” ingrained, and I feel that threading does the least harm in the long run and is pretty effective in precisely shaping your brows. I also have just developed a love for the quick pace at which The Threading Spa does my brows (less time in pain) and the kindness they have towards me when working on them. I’ve got super sensitive skin, so they often have to bear with me shedding some tears, but they’re extremely sweet about it and even apologize (for no fault of their own) while handing me tissues.
After my brows are done, I usually feel like a completely new person, and a sense of relief comes over me. Sometimes, for even a day or two after getting them threaded, I don’t even fill them in when going through my makeup routine because I’m so confident that they look sharp anyways! After a few days do pass, however, what I usually do is use a dark brown eye-shadow and a precision brush to fill in the ends and open spaces (more on this step in my makeup routine in my vlogs on my YouTube channel!)
Whatever small routine this may require you to inculcate, I encourage you to think of your brows as extremely important when it comes to beauty. Whether it be threading, waxing, tinting, or simply brushing or filling them in, it’s important to groom them depending on what you think they may need. If you do decide that you want to thread, wax, or tint them, and you’re local in Massachusetts, definitely feel free to check out The Threading Spa (they’ve got 10 locations here). Let’s make a pact to keep our brows as bold and beautiful as we are deep down!
