Through most of my life, my eyebrow shape has stayed relatively the same. Once I realised that I was at the stage where something had to be done, tame the beasts if you may, I started to get them threaded. Early last month I visited The Eyebrow Queen*, and had my eyebrows tinted and waxed, by the lovely Diana. Read on to hear about My Experience with The Eyebrow Queen.

WHO IS THE EYEBROW QUEEN?
The Eyebrow Queen is one of Australia’s top brow magicians. I say magicians because they really did perform magic on my brows haha. In proper terms, they’re a brow studio. They are situated in South Yarra, Melbourne, and have lots of celebrity clients including Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Margot Robbie.
MY EXPERIENCE AND BROW HISTORY
Before my brow tinting and waxing, my brows were very sparse. To me, I’d say my hairs were almost non-existent and the shape wasn’t very desirable. I was just getting them threaded at my local shopping centre. When it was time during my makeup routine to do my brows, I would simply fill them in with a pencil or powder during the day. I would follow the natural shape, fill in the gaps and that was it. What I was then left with, were two ‘kinda similar’ long distant cousin eyebrows.
Walking into the studio, I was quite nervous. I’ve never had tinting before and every new beauty treatment is quite daunting. When I opened the door, Diana was already smiling, and she was very approachable. She told me what was going to happen and off we went.
During the brow pimping experience, Diana kept mentioning what she was doing and I was just lying there very peacefully whilst my brows were shaped and tinted.
After, my brows were BOLD, probably a little too bold for me, so I kindly asked Diana to take them down a notch. This was what I was left with, and I was ecstatic. I walked out of there feeling on top of the world.
The next two weeks my brows were incredible. I was receiving compliments left right and centre, and quite a few of my friends were messaging me things like ‘I didn’t know brow tinting could do that’! – See, magic. I didn’t have to fill in my brows at all. The only thing I had to change in my routine was not using oil based cleansers. I just opted for micellar water and a super gentle face cleanser.
After the tinting faded, I was left with an incredible brow shape that was very easy to fill in. I now knew what my brows should look like, and I just recreated the shape I had when they were tinted. I was still receiving comments and people were asking if I had my brows done again. But nope, just a nice shape that made everything super easy for me.
WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?
Absolutely! The only reason why I haven’t gone back is because my shape is still incredible and I feel like I’m not due for it yet.
