Empower Studio - HD Brows

This post is a little bit different to what I usually write about but I may possibly start doing (sporadic) beauty posts!?
On Wednesday I trotted along to Empower Studio on 51 South William St. (above Project 51). I found these guys through twitter when I saw that they were giving away a special deal to get HD brows for €15 as opposed to the usual price of around €50! I've never had my eyebrows done before but after seeing some of their work on other people I was dead set on giving it a go!
There's a few steps to HD brows, I can't exactly remember ALL of them but there is dying, shaping, waxing and plucking to name a few. Fionnuala did my brows and she was brilliant! Totally friendly and chatty and was really knowledgeable about products and gave me loads of tips!

Unfortunately I didn't take a photo before I left for the studio but this is the closest one I could find that showed clearly how my brows looked before.

It takes a few sessions to get the complete look of a HD brow. Depending on the shape and thickness of your brows decides how many times you should go back to get them shaped, dyed etc. 

I was told I had a pretty good shape and thickness to my brows but I was missing a few small patches that could do with some growing. I was recommended the HD Brows Grow Baby Grow which pulls hair from the follicles where hair has stopped growing. It literally pulls hair up from the dead! And here's a fun tip; this Grow Baby Grow also works on your lashes! So if you're suffering from short or barely there lashes, use this  product over a period of a few weeks and your lashes will have grown!
Although the session only cost €15 I splurged a little and bought the Grow Baby Grow which cost €30 from Empower but I'm sure it's gonna be totally worth it! I can't wait to try it on my lashes! Whooo!

If you're one of those people like me who don't particularly want to pay loooooads of money for beauty treatments then I can't recommend Empower Studio enough! They are doing a few really good deals at the moment like Brows for €15 on Wednesday and Make Up for €20 on Saturdays! Just check out their twitter HERE to follow and redeem the offers!
