The eyes are the window to your soul and when it comes to beauty, it is the area that you should focus on the most. Although my boyfriend may disagree, I am pretty low maintenance, and don’t want to spend too much time on upkeep. So, here’s how I make sure my brow and lash game are always on point without bothering with mascara or eyebrow pencils (you can toss them out!).
Ritual Spa in downtown Toronto (789 King Street West) is my go-to for lash extensions, brow shaping and tinting. There are many spas where you can find similar services, but their browWOW ($30) and Extreme Eyelash Extensions ($150) are my personal favourite.
Why pay to have your brows tinted and false lashes applied instead of just using makeup, you ask? I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to wake up in the morning and just quickly wash your face, apply a bit of blush and walk out the door. Not having to remove globs of mascara every night before heading to bed is life changing. False lashes can look very natural, although I go with the Extreme set, you can choose a lighter application of 40 lashes or if you love the glam look, 110.
The browWOW is bespoke tailoring for your brows. The service includes a consultation and full analysis of your brows and face, cleansing and exfoliation of the brow area. They use a vegetable based dye to tint brows before threading or waxing, tweezing and trimming to achieve perfect look. Boost your brows with a MicroCurrent Brow List ($15), which is a low level electrical current that stimulates the collagen and elastin production in your skin that will tone and lift your brow area.
