HD Brows

Hey guys,

On Saturday I went and got myself some HD brows did!  I've heard a lot of fuss about these in the beauty world at the moment and wanted to see what it was all about.  It's quite a trend amongst celebrities too and I heard the likes of The Saturdays and of course the cast of TOWIE have been getting these done.

Before you have them done you need to go for a patch test as they will be dying your eyebrows so you need to make sure you do not have any allergic reaction to the dye.

The process consists of 7 stages to create the 'perfect' symmetrical brow shape and all in all it took about 45 minutes.

The first step was to assess my face shape and colouring to get the best brow shape for me.  She noticed that one of my brows was slightly more arched than the other, which she said is very common.  There are a few different styles that you can go for.  There is a quite soft looking brow which is probably more suitable for blondes and there is also a more strong and sharp brow shape.  I went for something between the two.  I liked the look of the sharp brow but at the same time I didn't want to look too scary and 'scouse brow' like!  Also, my face is quite small so I didn't think I would suit anything too strong.

After we had decided on a desired result the next step was to tint them.  She will try to tint to a similar colour to your hair or if you want darker then you can.  My hair is pretty dark so she went for a dark brown.

Whilst waiting for the dye to take she then waxed under and over my eyebrow into the correct shape, trying to get them as symmetrical as possible.  HD brows are all about being symmetrical.

The next step is threading to get rid of any little baby hairs and blend them into the hairline.

Then she tweezed them to go over the shape and to doubly make sure it was right.

After that she cut any of the longer hairs that stuck out so that they were well groomed.

Lastly she removed the tint as the colour had now been on long enough to take.  She then used an eyebrow powder to fill in any gaps where the hairs need to grow still and set them in place using a brow gel.

(Before)                                                   (Directly after)

At first when I looked at them in the mirror I was quite shocked because of how different they looked.  I always thought my eyebrows were quite dark and thick so I didn't think they would look so different but I am really really happy with them.  They were really dark at first and took a bit of getting used to but now I just love them.  She did say that the dye would wear down slightly after a few days and be a more natural colour so if you are a bit surprised at first, don't worry.

(With make-up)

I can't tell you how pleased I am with them and will definitely be going back again and again.  She said that they last 4-6 weeks and mine cost £25.  She also told me not to touch them during this time, only tweezing the odd hairs that look really out of place.  She said to leave any of the hairs near the hairline because there are some that need to grow back into place as there were a few gaps in some places.  So don't expect to achieve the perfect brow after your first time because it's all about maintaining them and growing them in the right places to achieve the symmetrical HD brows result.  I would highly recommend this treatment.

I hope you found this post helpful and please feel free to ask me any questions on my experience that I can try to answer.

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here .

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too!

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
