DIY Beauty: How often do you…..
Dye your hair? I’ve had every colour under the sun and some colours that you would never find in the natural world. But in the last few years I’ve stuck with varying shades in the brown family. This Light Golden Brown from L’oreal really works with my pale skintone and green eyes. My natural hair colour is a dull mousy brown that now has silver/grey running through it and not by choice! In an ideal world I would dye my hair every two weeks to hide them but I normally leave eight weeks between each sesh.
Pluck your eyebrows – These are my lovely surgical point tweezers from Tweezerman and I wouldn’t be without them. They may look vicious but they help dig out those little hairs that just sit below the surface. I used to pluck my eyebrows everyday when I was wearing them razor thin but now I wait seven days before I start ripping hairs out of my face. I also use these on Jamie otherwise he’d be sporting the Gallagher Brother uni-brow.
Dye your eyelashes/eyebrows – I’ve only ever dyed my eyebrows at home as it’s pretty tricky to dye your own eyelashes unless you get someone to help you. I’ve never known a ’30′ day eyebrow dye to last 30 days, I would say after about two weeks I need to do them again.
Wax – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, thanks to my Italian heritage I will be inheriting a Tom Selleck in later years if I don’t do something about it now. Yes it hurts ripping hairs out of your upper lip but no one ever said beauty wasn’t painful. I’ve been using Elegant Touch for years now, and it’s really easy to use and I can control where the wax goes with the little wooden spatula.
So ladies/gents do you do these things yourself or leave it in the capable hands of a professional?
