Besides yearning for the ease of not having to draw my eyebrow every single day, I have the problem of uneven eyebrow bone (is there such a name for that bone?). My left side of my brow bone is slightly elevated than the left. It's like, my face looks loopsided, and LOOPSIDED BROWS ARE DEFINITELY NOT SEXY!!!!
Which type of eyebrows do you have?
Worse, people might think that I am a terrible Brow Plucker™ and I simply cannot allow that accusation to happen! No!
Keep in mind that eyebrows are to enhance our beauty. SO many times we have seen Hollywood female artists who aren't famous with disatrous eyebrows (too bushy, too thin, too black, too arched, too bleached etc) and when they altered it, BOOM, they become the next HOT female artist in town!
Not that I want to become an actress or anything like that. But imagine facing customers daily, and them telling me, "Ehh, your brows.. not balance leh". That is pretty embarrassing lah.
So couple of weeks ago, I finally did the Brownaissance™. Since this is not an advert and I do not wish to help the company to promote their services, simply because 1) it is damn expensive 2) it is damn expensive 3) it is damn expensive 4) it is not painless.
Anyway, that grumpy and whinny me aside. Let me describe to you, how the whole process works. OKay?
1) Starts off with a beautician artist / therapist scrutinizing my face.
2) She, then, will use a brow pencil to draw out a sketch of the eyebrow and enquires if you like it.
3) If you like it on first sketch, please head to step 4. If not, go back step 2.
4) Slowly she'll fill in the brow with the brow pencil. Little at a time
5) Erasing off those out of line errors.
6) Sketching back the brows again.
7) Opps. Brows aren't balanced. Erase again.
8) Sketch again... filling in the gaps
9) Shave off those unwanted rowdy brow hair.
10) Sketch and erase process again.
Tada! The whole sketching process, which took almost 45mins, is done! Next the beautician artist / therapist asked me to head over to one of their beauty cubicle.
Me: Ehhh. Painful ar?
Beautician artist/therapist: No lah. Like pluck eyebrow liddat only!
Me: Oh. Liddat ar. So can tahan lah?
Beautician artist/therapist: Can wan.
That calmed me for a bit. And I thought to myself, if I can survive through labour pain, for sure this kinda pain isn't much to complain about lah.
Truth to be told, it wasn't painless! The knife is in fact a blade consisted of tiny needles. I was being told there are about 16-21 needles in each blade. The beautician artist/therapist will then use the blade, dip into the dye and then start pricking the eyebrow. The process took about 45 mins, of which I scolded myself for becoming RM300plus poorer just to suffer through pain.
Apparently I was told to avoid seafood and peanuts for the first 2 days, in case there is a flare of allergy. Then I was given this cream, which I highly suspect to consist of steroids, to apply 3 times a day. Avoid water on the brow area for 1 week is the toughest. How to wash face?
