I’m a professional makeup artist. This means I regularly apply makeup on other people. This also means that, after years of practicing on my own face, I basically know how to do my makeup with my eyes closed. Except for my eyebrows. The bane of doing my own face has always been my eyebrows. Thick yet sparse distribution, uneven from one to the other and wiry hairs with a mind of their own, my brows are in constant need of being pampered, trimmed, filled in and gelled down. Just shy of being coddled like a poodle, they are the epitome of high maintenance.
With all that being stated, I’d pretty much come to my wits end until I heard the latest in the world of all things trend y and extension-like: eyebrow extensions.
The promises swirl through my head: natural looking, say bye-bye to smudges and fading, no more melting away, last for weeks, eliminate brow grooming time…
I’m dizzy with excitement and the fulfillment of these prospects. So, enter Winks Eyelash Boutique with the latest in all things lash and brow extension services. Their reputation was built on superior eyelash extensions and, after a move to the heart of Yorkville, they’ve become a staple in the city for ladies who lash. I’m booked and prepped for what feels like a life altering appointment.
Just like before a trip to the dentist, I make sure I floss (aka tweeze any random hairs) so as not to embarrass myself in front of the professional. A step rather unnecessary on my part as, with this service from Winks, a brow shaping happens to be included.
