HD Brows… my new obsession!!

11 May

I have an obsession with eyebrows. Just putting it out there.

I LOVE big thick eyebrows and in every possible opportunity I will paint on some massive ones in a photoshoot as I think they are bold, difficult to perfect (from a Makeup artist point of view) and can change the whole look of someones’ face – See one of my previous posts! *Makeup your Eyebrows!*

For an example the below shots are of a Chester based model, Emma Dixon, I have worked with her many times and I LOVE doing her makeup as she has amazing skin and any slight change to her features dramatically changes the look of a shot!

I heard about HD brows through Niki Sheridan at Escape Hair and beauty, a stylist I have worked with on a Bridal Photoshoot a couple of months ago. She was advertising a new style of eyebrow shaping and I was intrigued!

So.. I booked in at Escape in Ellesmere Port with Ellie Finlay who is a trained HD brow specialist! You need to be specifically trained by HD Brows to be able to advertise their copyrighted name and use their products.

Before my first appointment I needed to have a patch test, this is best practice with any form of dye including hair dye, but most common with eyelash and eyebrow dyeing.

On arrival Ellie talked me through the 7 step HD Brow process.. You would never imagine so much work would go into an eyebrow shape!

Be warned.. my eyebrows were pretty bad, so I was in the salon for over 45 minutes being tweezed, threaded plucked

and dyed. All in the name of beauty!

Before!

After!

I normally colour my eyebrows in with an eyebrow pencil and a bit of brown eyeshadow as they tend to be blonder in places and they are not long enough either side for my liking. I found that the dye and technique used in the HD brows made my eyebrows seem a lot thicker (which I loved!) and gave them an elongated shape. It made such a difference to the shape of my face and also when I was applying makeup in the morning and not having to touch my brows was a treat! I got mine re-done after 5 weeks, the shape also stayed for longer and I didnt need to pluck in between appointments.
