Some women feel they can’t leave the house without their makeup, or at the very least, a certain element of their makeup. Some say they could never go out without lipstick, others say foundation, powder or eyeliner. However, most often it’s mascara. Today’s deal can give you a head start on your makeup routine by getting an Eyelash Lift and Tint at Dadi’s Beauty Salon in Maple Ridge.
Wake Up to Lashes you Love!
And if you’re ever wondering what the experience feels like, why not listen to one UK gal’s experience.
THE THREADING PART
- It DOES hurt, but it’s bearable. It depends on your therapist (some are more aggressive than others…), your pain threshold, and your time of the month.
- If you know you’re getting your brows done, I’d advise against applying eye makeup that day. Watering eyes are a common side effect, and we all know that doesn’t mix well with mascara.
- The therapist will ask you to ‘PULL/HOLD’ the skin around your eyebrow with both hands to keep it taut. If you’ve never done it before, they’ll show you how to do it.
- Don’t be afraid to tell the therapist exactly what you want. If you’ve been growing out your arches or want to keep a certain level of thickness, let them know.
- The therapist will hand you a mirror once your brows are done. Now’s the time to have a good ol’ inspection to make sure they’re the exact shape you wanted.
- Be aware that there’ll be some redness around your eyebrows as the skin is particularly thin in this area.
- This brings me to my last piece of threading advice. Say yes to the offer of aloe vera gel, which helps to reduce redness, and cools and soothes the area.
THE TINTING PART
- If you’ve never had your eyebrows tinted at Superdrug before, you’ll need a patch test done 24 hours before treatment, to ensure you’re not allergic to the product used.
- Therapists will usually thread your brows before tinting them. If not, no need to panic! It just depends on their preference. A bit like the whole tea and milk debate…
- They will ask you which colour you’d like to go – the shades range from light brown to black. I’d say always go a shade darker than you’d think; the results will last longer.
- Vaseline is often applied around the brow to help prevent any dye from getting onto your skin.
- Once the dye is applied, it will be left on for about five minutes. Don’t scream to the high heavens if you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror at this point…
- The therapist will then wipe off the tint with a cotton pad and water and will pass you a mirror to assess your new brows. Don’t be alarmed if they look quite a lot darker than expected. Remember the skin underneath will also have tint on it, which will come off when you wash your face.
