This is an appreciation post for my new eyebrow lady. I don’t actually know her name yet, therefore she will remain anonymous for the time being, but what a legend she is.
I’ve been to see her twice thus far because my last eyebrow lady seems to be going on 6 month holidays twice a year! Lucky babe! I mean, how else would you explain never being in your place of work without a reason? I went to her salon on several ocassions in the space of 4-6 months and she was constantly “off on holiday”. She took my eyebrow game with her to Lanzarote and left me with Epping Forest growing under my forehead and above my eye. 😭
This post isn’t about my old eyebrow lady (who by the way is very sweet and lovely – albeit selfish! 😂).
My new eyebrow lady though – amazing. I’ve been to see her twice. The first time she saw me, she was like “OMG!” I was like: “tell me about it, girlfriend!” Then she says: “do you not have one regular eyebrow lady? Your eyebrows seem to be all over the place…” I could’ve got offended by that comment, but it takes a lot to get me offended so I just replied with: “does it LOOK LIKE I DO?” – in a more sincere tone. The cheeky so-and-so! Anyway, she tried pulling it back by saying: “no, it’s just there’ve been some chunks taken out in the top and bottom.” FML! Never tweeze them yoursleves unless you’re a pro, girls! I was so worried that she wouldn’t be able to fix it, but I’d worn a fringe for much of the year anyway that I could just put it down to cover what lay beneath…
Cut a longer than this story short (I could go on forever, but I’ll spare you because it’s Christmas, Hannukah and almost the New Year), she sorted my eyebrows out there and then, HURRAY! I loved what I saw then so much that I pulled my ‘at a really annoying length-stage’ fringe back and enjoyed showing off my new stronger than ever ‘eyebrow game’ whilst also getting some much anticipated (and needed) fresh air to my previously suffocated forehead pores.
The second time I saw her, today, she sorted them out even more as the “missing chunks” had started growing. YAY for hair growth in the right places! I love how feathered they look. You can see each hair strand by strand. 😍

My eyebrow lady is boss. She better not go on holiday or else I’m going with her – the beach. I legit will just invite myself and when I see her I’ll just shout: “fancy seeing you here *insert name here*, want to do my eyebrows here on the sun-lounger as we sip on some pina coladas and catch a golden glow or two?”
I am thinking of revamping Beauty Bae in time for 2017. Ideally, I’d like to start by changing the theme (web design) of this site along with the logo. However, I’m struggling to come up with ideas… That’s where YOU come in!
Anyone care to offer me some advice? What would YOU like to see on Beauty Bae? How can I improve it for your viewing (…reading) pleasure?
This could be anything from suggestions on how to make the logo or web design/theme look better to new ideas for posts or topics.
Get in touch with me via Facebook, Twitter,YouTube, Snapchat/Instagram: @miamii.mansour or here in the comments section below and share your thoughts.
Above all, Beauty Bae is for YOU! With that in mind – it’ll be good to know what YOU want to see more (or less) of, and how you’d want this blog to look.
Have a good rest of 2016 (or try to, anyway). I know it’s hard, but don’t let the sudden and shocking passing of icons get you down too much. It’s been an awful year on the face of it, but there are plenty of blessings in our lives that outweigh the crap that’s occurring around us… RIP to all the greats.
My make-up routine has changed yet again… I told you it would, didn’t I? 😆
This post discusses my way of creating a festive, Christmas 🎄 look easier and simpler than most. This look took me half an hour to do. (Excuse the hair, coconut oil is my best friend and a brush is my worst enemy, God bless). ❤️
I’ve discovered that you do need more than three things in your make up bag to pull off an extremely flawless and photo ready face. So, I’ll walk you through my new routine. 💁🏻
