I’ve butchered my eye brows more times than I care to admit. I’ve taken off too many hairs, thinned them out, accidentally reshaped them and disrupted the shape of my arch so that my brows looked lopsided. You name it I’ve done it which is why I’ve been spending a lot of money to get them done professionally. The problem is that it gets expensive and there are times that I just don’t feel like driving for half an hour to get to the threading salon. After seeing the video of how Anastasia’s new brow kit can make cleaning up my brows so much easier I was very excited to see how well a woman like me would do with it. After all I’m no brow guru and my hand isn’t steady at all. Here are the results.
First I used the brow brush to apply some wax onto your eyebrow and found that the wax laid down my brows nicely and even started to give them some shape. It didn’t feel heavy as you would think that it would but you can definitely tell that it’s there.
Next I chose a stencil shape from the kit. There are five to choose from including petite arch, slim arch, medium arch, high arch and full arch. I have pretty big eyebrows so I went for the full arch which is thicker and longer than the other stencils. If your is thicker than the stencil size you can move the stencil up or down a bit so that you keep the fullness of your brow, but I found that they’re pretty true to size.
Finally, I used the stencil to apply one of the brown shadows onto my eyebrow area. I had to make sure to have a proper hold on the stencil in order to be able to bend it to fit the shape of my eyebrow properly. After applying the shadow I immediately saw that it really made my immediate brow area stand out so that I could see exactly which hairs had to be removed and which ones had to be cut to create a nice crisp line. This allowed the plucking process to go very smoothly because I didn’t have to think twice about every hair that I was going to remove. The wax and the shadow worked beautifully to create such an outline that there would be no need to second guess or hesitate about which hairs should go and which ones should stay. The picture below will show the before and after results of how well it worked. The left brow has been untouched and the right brow has been cleaned up with the help of the kit.
The kit made it made it as easy as possible to get exquisite brows in a short amount of time. There was no mess, no fuss and no traveling required. If your eyebrows grow as fast as mine do or if you’re not very good and doing them yourself, I highly recommend picking up the Anastasia brow kit.
