Browspiration


Brows, brows, brows!!!! The new rage is all about the statement brow. When it comes to the the brow the name that pops to most minds is Cara Delvingne's. Her brows take center stage on her beautiful face. Perfection!

But hang on.......have you been heavy handed with your tweezers over the years, or the owner of invisible brows or just clueless as to how to achieve your dream brow!?! Fear not, I have found you the solution girls. Introducing you to The Brow Artist, Lorna Farrelly. You can find her on Twitter HERE! Lorna is a genuine artist, having studied fine art and make up artistry. She holds an amazing eye for symmetry and attention to detail. She takes her job and your brows seriously. Lorna, along with her equally talented sister Liz, is trying to give everyone their best possible brow. 

The Brow Artist: Lorna Farrelly
I heard about Lorna from word of mouth and online. She has a room at the fabulous The Hive, 58 South George's St., Dublin 2. I booked an appointment hoping Lorna could rescue my uneven, over-plucked brows. I had never had my eyebrows shaped by anyone, so I was a little nervous. When I arrived Lorna made me feel right at home. We chatted briefly about my disastrous relationship with my tweezers and how she could rescue them.The approach is to sharpen up the brows using a combination of plucking and threading. Lorna does this with ease and precision, no tugging on your delicate skin around the eye. Once the brow is ready, Lorna creates a custom-blended tint used to enhance the new brow shape. The tint is also used to fill in any gaps and give the brow a fuller look. Now it may take a while to achieve your dream brow, but with Lorna working with you, it can be achieved. My main concern was the "Scouse brow", as my hair is so blonde. She explained that they would not be that severe and we discussed my hopes for my brows. As i have over plucked, I have a lot of gaps and uneven areas. We decided on a slightly darker tint for now until my brows grow out a bit more. Lorna can lighten or darken your brow. I will eventually go for more a blonder tone brow when I achieve the shape we want. I have put down the tweezers, I owned three, and embraced my regrowth. 



So far I have been to see Lorna twice. I love going to see her, especially for the chats!! She is a lady and a true pro. My brows are already looking fuller and have a wonderful new profile. For a brow shape and bespoke tint it is €45. For bookings you can email thebrowartist@gmail.com. With a bit more work I hope to have my dream brow very, very soon.
