The Brow Studio Experience

“If the eyes are the window to the soul, then the brows are the window frame.”

As with my ever sparse lashes, my brows understandably have the same fate, not a very convenient thing, I must say. Because this means I am to perpetually fill them in, unlike if it were bushy, I can always shape them to my liking. Since I am a firm believer that brows are what frame the face, how we shape them, or fill them in can be critical in one’s over all look. The very reason I can leave the house without powder, lipstick or any other makeup on, but you can’t make me leave the house without (filling) my “brows” in. “If the eyes are the window to the soul, then the brows are the window frame.”

The Brow Studio

 I had a lovely and interesting time with The Brow Studio owner, Teng Tobillo and other bloggers a couple of weeks back. It was my first time to get some decent brow treatment, since the place I used to go to for waxing have always told me off from getting my brows shaped or threaded, because “I had no brows to start with.” I know, that may sound I little harsh. But I don’t really mind the rejection since I’ve known for a fact that I’ve always had little brows to work with anyway. And I just learned to make do of what I have. This is why I appreciated that The Brow Studio welcomed me and my very sparse brows. I love the brushing up on how I should have my brows shaped. I have learned quite a bit since I attended MakeUp Forever’s Personal Makeup Course in 2011.

Emy of The Brow Studio

 

The brow designer who took care of me was Ate Emy. As with any other salon I go to, I have kind of made it a habit to ask them how long they’ve been with the company. Ate Emy has been with The Brow Studio since it was launched at its very first location in Eastwood City in 2010. I love that. For my first brow-grooming experience, I wouldn’t want to just entrust my already problematic brows to a noob.

The Brow Studio brow designers go through rigorous classroom and hands-on training sessions. They are trained to master thread handling and eyebrow arch creation and facial shape assessment. What I totally dig is how The Brow Studio have every brow designer thread over 100 pairs of eyebrows before releasing them on the floor to work on actual clients. How’s that for quality control? It was my first time ever to experience having my wayward brows threaded and I did not once flinch! And all the while I thought it was painful.

Vouching for Mariano Dental Clinic

There was no way I would have thought that after more than a decade of having my braces removed, I was gonna have it back on! Blame it on my impacted wisdom tooth that made its way to crash on adjacent molars. One of which I lost during the odontectomy procedure that I had done in April.  Surgery was more than an hour and I went home with 7 bloody stitches! Before I scare off anyone who is undergoing odontectomy procedure, know that it was something that has to be done. Else, I’d end up losing all the molars on that side where the impacted wisdom tooth was.

What’s the Shape of Your Face?

Why is it important to know what the shape of your face is? One basic benefit is that by knowing what your face shape is, you practically are able to pinpoint what hair style best fits you.

There are six different face shapes: ROUND, SQUARE, HEART, OVAL AND LONG. Oval shape is called the ideal face shape. The oval face has no major irregularities, considered as a make up artist’s dream face. The square face has a heavy jawline, weak chine and wide forehead. The round face has a weak chin, soft roundness with no edges. A heart shaped face has pointed chin and a broad and high forehead.

 

There are faces that are combination of different types. You might want to consult your make up artist or hairdresser. They would know what the best make up or hairstyle to enhace your assets and downplay liabilities.
