BERRY BEAUTY: Eyebrows Class at Luxe Beauty Lounge

Eyebrows on fleek anyone?

If you're social media conscious, and into makeup and beauty, you know that one of the "greatest" achievements is getting your eyebrows looking as fleeky as possible. Lol, that didn't sound right but you get the gist. In Nigeria here, where women are generally image conscious, you see a lot of us doing everything possible to look good - eyebrows on fleek, check; winged liner on fleek, check; matte lips on fleek, check.... it's all about the fleekdom. *rolls eyes*

Anyways, a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned the free eyebrows class happening at Luxe Beauty Lounge in Lekki. The last time I went to a makeup class was st Stella's Addiction's studio. While I learned a lot there, I still felt (and feel) that I need more practice and help. I watch tutorials on Youtube sometimes, but there's nothing like having a live teacher in front of you. A lot of makeup classes are springing up all over Lagos and Abuja, but I find that most of them aren't hands-on. I think the best way to learn these skills is via classes that allow you to practice at the same time. I'm not knocking classes where they show you and you watch, but that's only slightly better than watching Youtube videos.


So I got there bright and early, but most of the class showed up late. While waiting I took photos of the owner, Blondie (that's her real name for real) and some of her handmade skincare products.












When more people showed up, we sat down and started the class. Blondie showed us what brows should and shouldn't look like, using a white board. The perfect eyebrow follows YOUR natural brow line, which means everyone's eyebrows can't look the same.




Blondie then had everyone practice doing one eyebrow on a partner, and then we practiced on the other eyebrow by ourselves.

This is me with one eyebrow done.



I then finished the other one. think I tried sha. Blondie had to help with minor fixes because I was afraid of having too dark eyebrows, that they ended up too light.








Since then, I think I've been doing a better job with my eyebrows, but never enough time to use concealer for that "done" look. Ah well.

Be sure to follow Luxe Beauty Lounge on Instagram. Christmas is coming up, and I think the products would make for great Christmas presents. Also gifts for bridesmaids, bridal showers, etc.

    1. You should! And definitely stop by her store. In fact, Lagos has soooo much to offer and so many things to do - if only the traffic issue were a non-issue. And thanks for the compliment - especially coming from you!

    2. You know what's funny? I must have watched like 50 videos on how to do eyebrows on Youtube, but it wasn't until I sat in her class and applied the techniques she shared that I got it.
