Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Beauty Bazaar -

BAZAAR talks eye­brow main­te­nance with Ben­e­fit Na­tional Brow Artist Rileen Chua. Tra­di­tional tech­niques vs. wax­ing. “When you are thread­ing your brows, you are ly­ing down, but we don’t walk around ly­ing down! So, when you stand up again, the shapes of your brows will be un­even. It is also rather un­hy­gienic. Shap­ing re­quires tweez­ing and shav­ing, and that pro­pels the pos­si­bil­ity of in­grown hair. Wax­ing, how­ever, pulls out your finest hair without leaving the pores open. It also con­trols the growth rate of your hair, so ev­ery­thing grows back at the same time, and they tend to be finer and lighter, too.” Why does it hurt? “Wax­ing around the up­per lip is frag­ile be­cause we don’t work on the hair fol­li­cle as much as we do around the eyes. Our eyes blink 16,800 times on av­er­age ev­ery day. We put our eyes through a lot, that’s why it has a much higher pain tol­er­ance!”

Ben­e­fit takes eye­brow con­tour­ing very se­ri­ously
