    One of the biggest problem I’ve faced as a girl is, I’ve got too much hair. I’ve too much facial hair, too much body hair, etc. My body hair issue used affect my self-esteem quite a bit because my friends and classmates would always point out my facial hair (upper lip) and hair on my arms and legs. Hence, ever since I discovered ways to tame my body hair, I’ve never stopped keeping them at bay. You can check out my 10 years transformation post where I shared about how I looked like during teenage years. At around 15, I discovered the importance of eyebrow shaping.

    Shaping your eyebrows is important because:

    1. It helps to lift your eyes, and hence, brighten your face. You will look more refreshed and approachable. 
    2. A set of nicely shaped eyebrows will accentuate your facial features.
    3. It gives a more polished look overall. Unkempt eyebrows make you look like you haven’t slept for ages and you definitely want to avoid that.

    Here is how my eyebrows look like without shaping.

    Without Waxing

    You can tell that they are growing everywhere! On top of the brow bones and below them. My hair follicles are too active for their own good. Without Waxing-2

    Also, you can see that my brow area has some pimple scars. I’d blame the hair for this because they tend to trap dirt and eyebrows are often one of the areas we forget to wash during our facial regime.

    If I don’t trim or shape my brows, I look really tired and messy. Whenever I take a selfie and feel like I don’t look right, I know it’s definitely gotta be my brows issue. For sure!!

    I’m really happy and lucky to have Benefit Cosmetics wax my eyebrows for me. With professional care, I’m sure my hair bush will be nicely tamed. 🙂

    Here is a front view of my bushy brows. Let me assure you that they look even worse than these when they are fully grown out. Benefit Brow bar

    Here, I  have the Benefit Brow Expert measuring the my face and eyebrows proportion. Let’s not forget Benefit’s Signature Arch look where they measure the highest point of your eyes and where the arch should be at.

    You see, I told you I look really tired and unkempt with those bushy brows right. Benefit Brow Waxing-4

    And here we go!! The first area for the treatment is in between the brows, above the nose. The brow expert applied a layer of wax.Benefit Brow Waxing-9

    And then a waxing strip on top of the hot wax. And before you know it, the wax strip will be pulled against the direction of growth of your hair. In this way, it is easier to grip stubborn hair and ensure the hair will come off with the waxing strip. I rate the pain 2/10!! It’s definitely A LOT A LOT less painful than eye brow plucking or threading! I have quite a high threshold for pain but THREADING is a big no no for me. It always never fails to make me tear.

    For me, I have really thick and coarse hair. Every individual strand is very thick and stubborn so plucking can get very painful at times because  you can feel the person plucking every single strand of hair out. Benefit Brow Waxing-10

    OMG LOOK AT THAT DIFFERENCE. The waxed brow is a lot more cleaner and polished than the other right? You can tell that the waxed brow looks a lot more tamed and neat. Benefit Brow Waxing-12

    Another picture for your reference. Your brow area may turn red depending on your skin reaction but it will go away. Mine went away in a couple of hours.

    I cannot be more thankful that I have discovered eyebrow waxing so I never have to go through the pain of eyebrow plucking again.

    I used to pluck my eyebrows but recently it seems I cannot withstand the pain, not too sure if it’s due to my hormones or what. And also, sometimes the person may pluck a bit too much and I end up with very thin brows and overly-arched brows.

    Here is the price chart for all you lovelies who are interested in taming your facial hair. Trust me, it makes a freaking lot of difference!!

      Hi V,

      It depends on your hair growth. For me, I wax every once a month! My hair grows quickly so it may start growing within one week but I can follow the shape that Benefit created for me. So anything that falls out of the eyebrow shape, I pluck them by myself! 🙂

    Hi. I have the worst eyebrow after threading now. It’s Super thin and I’m flying off to my Cousin wedding next week. I thought of doing eyebrow tinting to make it thicker. Do you think it’ll help ?

      Depends on your current brow colour. If it’s already dark brown or black, then if you tint it darker, it will not make much of a difference. If your brow is lighter shader, then maybe if you tint it dark, it will enhance the look even more. 🙂
