Benefit Brow Bars

Warning: up close up unfortunate picture of my face!

On Saturday I went to a Benefit opening of a Brow Bar in Debenhams Preston and was so excited. I get my eyebrows waxed at a salon every 4 weeks and normally was quite happy with that, but felt differently after the Benefit brow experience. I hate my eyebrow shape but learnt how to work with it to the best of my abilities, and I must say it impressed me a lot.

Firstly, Leanne @ Benefit taught me about brow mapping which is finding the a,b and c parts of your eyebrow. An easy way to do this is get a pencil and line it up to the inner corner of your nose and the inner corner of your eye. Then you can make a mark, this is where your eyebrow should start.

Secondly, you then hold the pencil horizontally from the outside corner of your nose through the outer corner of your pupil and make another mark as this is where your arch should be. Apparently mine is in the right place, so they are perfect in some way!

Thirdly, you line up the outer corner of your nose with the outer corner of your eye to make the final mark, this is the ending point of your eyebrow. Then you can fill in between the marks for your perfect Benefit Brow.

It was getting dark by the time I got home so excuse the bad lighting, you get the idea!
Shell did a fantastic job and I couldn't thank her enough. I was amazed how it changed my face shape and I love this trademark brow. I believe I will now be starting to sport this look for a while! I was happy with the end result and also got a fab goody bag which I will be testing and reviewing soon.

It was great meeting all the Benefit girls and also Lisa, Danielle and Laura. Hopefully there will be more events up North for us ladies :-)

Disclaimer: This was a complimentary service for the opening of the brow bar however, this in no way affects my judgement. Shell @ Benefit changed my opinion for life though!

  1. I've been looking for a review on the brow bars for agessss!! I'm not really happy with mine and want to try getting them professionally shaped I'm definitely going to book and appointment now x

  2. I'd definitely recommend it. They personalise it to your wants too so everybody doesn't look the same which put me off at first. I learnt a lot and think it's worth it. Do it! :) x
