Over lunch break, instead of eating lunch or reading a book, I decided to head over to Sasa, located near Carrefour in Suntec City second floor. This morning I had noticed that my eyebrows were a mess, and I realized that it was time to pay a visit to Sasa‘s resident makeup artist for a free eyebrow grooming session. I like having Suriatie groom my brows not only because it’s free but because she doesn’t use a blade, which would have been easier but more short-lived as the hairs removed would immediately grow back, and thicker, at that. Instead she wields fine-tipped tweezers to remove unwanted hair and a pair of small scissors to trim the ones that need to remain but are too long for aesthetic purposes. It’s a more painful process, though, and if you’re not used to it, you may even find yourself in tears. It does not end there, though. She goes on to shade her masterpiece with brow powder for a polished look.
Interesting tip from Sue: for those who want to grow out their eyebrow hairs quickly, apply brandy on the affected area. This is perfect for those who are no good at shaping their brows and accidentally take off too much… people like me, for example. I wonder if this will also work for hair on the head, though? Not for me, my hair is thick enough as it is, thank you, but for… you know who you are! 😉
