Hands up who has a hate-hate relationship with their brows? Well up until last week I was well and truly in that group! So I went to Tracie Giles Bespoke Permanent Make-Up Salon in Knightsbridge, London to get my brows looking fine as part of my ‘I’m getting married!’ beauty overhaul.
So the story behind my bad brows was due to over-plucking in my teenage years. Throughout my 20’s I’ve tried every single brow pencil and product out there and nothing has made life easier. The problem being my eyebrows were not even and so as a result I would often spend at least half an hour each day trying to get even brows. I resorted to using a stencil and some brow powder in the end as it was the quickest method to getting something close to symmetrical brows but they just didn’t look natural. About a year and a half ago I went to a brow specialist in London where I had a semi-permanent procedure done (Using micro-blading) to enhance and fill in my brows, unfortunately this didn’t last any longer than about 3 months and eventually what was left of the “tattoos” had faded to a not-so-pretty grey colour and I fast noticed them to become more and more uneven as the semi-perm make-up wore off.
I had heard on the London grapevine that there was a salon in Knightsbridge that offered a permanent solution to bad brows. Well it soon emerged that this was the Tracie Giles salon and an explosion of celebs were all going to her for these new brows and the press were giving rave reviews. I had to check this out!
Which brings us up to last week where I was able to go and see Tracie and experience this treatment for myself. I couldn’t be happier with the results, despite Tracie having to work over my existing brows tattoos she has created some very fine natural looking brows which suit my face perfectly! No more brow products needed and my daily make-up routine is so much easier, I don’t have to touch them!
