I Had My Brows Laminated — and This Is Exactly What the Process Is Like
When asked what one cosmetic item you'd take to a desert island, there are a lot of people who'd answer mascara. Not me. I'd be tossing up between two items: tinted moisturiser, and clear brow gel. The former, because it's multipurpose and I really don't think you can underestimate the combination of coverage, hydration, and (if you're lucky) a whisper of SPF all rolled into one product. The latter, because I always feel more "put together" with a brushed-up brow.
That being said, when I heard about brow lamination, it got my cogs turning. Brow lamination is a noninvasive beauty treatment (done in-salon) that essentially involves restructuring brow hairs to keep them in a desired shape. That means that I could conceivably find myself on a desert island with my face slathered in tinted moisturiser and with brushed-up brows, without needing to take brow gel.
After a quick Google I was officially intrigued and quickly booked an appointment at Lash Perfect Beauty Bar in Soho, London, to have my brows transformed. And yes, they truly were transformed.
