It’s all about the eyes…

Eyebrows, eyelashes, under eye care- we do and have it all. We are frequently asked the question- “How can I get a more youthful appearance around my eyes? They look so tired!” So here are 5 tips to brighten, lift and tighten the appearance of your eyes all done right here at Mindful Women Spa!

1. Brow Wax. Although this seems simple, it is probably the most important thing you can do to give the appearance of a clean, bright youthful look. It’s important you go to a licensed professional for this. Professionals are trained to look at the dimensions of your face, note where your arch should be according to your pupil, where your brows start according to your nostrils….need I go on? Each brow wax at Mindful Women is done custom just for your face shape, and we couldn’t be happier to assist you in getting your desired look.


2. Brow Dye. This goes hand in hand with the brow wax and is somewhat of a bolder look that some are timid to at first, but once you get used to it- it becomes a must! At Mindful Women we use a special brow dye that lasts much longer than traditional hair dye and is formulated to be a flattering and natural eyebrow color. Brow dye enhances richness to the brow, makes them appear thicker and gives a crisper look to the brow. Communicate with your Esthetician with the darkness you’d like and you’ll be thrilled with the results!


3. Brow Gel and Filling In . If you weren’t blessed with thick, luscious brows- no worries! Jane Iredale carried right here at Mindful Women has so many easy options! First- and the quickest and easiest way to enhance your thickness and richness is a brow gel. A lot like a mascara for your brows, brow gel is applied in upward strokes and coats the hairs for a thicker look without clumping or leaving behind a mess. The brow gel also comes in all different shades to match your color accordingly! So what if you have some bare patches that need more assistance than just a brow gel? That’s where the brow kit comes in. The brow kit comes with a pigmented brow powder and brushes to line and fill your brows to the desired shape! Curly or unruly brows? It also comes with a brow wax to keep those strays in place!


4. Eyelash Extensions. To compliment those new beautiful brows, try some longer thicker eyelashes! Performed right here at Mindful Women by qualified, licensed Master Estheticians- eyelash extensions give a darker lash line, longer-thicker lashes and the best part? No mascara! Using an eyelash extension with a good curl creates an upwards, lifted appearance which brightens the eye for that fun youthful eye! And have we mentioned the side profile with eyelash extensions? It’s adorable. Come see us for a full set (average procedure time 2 hours) and upkeep with fills every 2-3 weeks.

5. A Professional Eye Cream. We may sound like a broken record on this subject, but *professional* in professional eye cream is the key word. A professional cosmeceutical and/or prescription eye cream can legally have the active ingredients for results whereas cosmetic cream (ie: department store or drug store products) cannot and can sometimes have similar price tags! A good eye cream in necessary for tired, dehydrated, thin under eye skin. Come get a consult from one of our knowledgable Estheticians and find out which eye cream suits you best!
