I have been blessed with pretty thick, long eyelashes. Unfortunately they came with a unibrow. I have been getting my eyebrows done for more years than I can remember. My regular waxer is out of town for the month, so I went to my back-up. I thought it seemed to hurt a bit more than it usually did. I got to my car and my eyes were throbbing. I looked in the mirror to find some of my skin came off!!

They look much worse in real life than they do here in this picture.

I am not even sure why she had the wax so far down. My eyebrows are big, but not that big! Of course I had them done at lunch and actually had to go back and see patients.

Ugh. I hope they don't scar.

That looks so painful! Is it any better now that 24 hours have passed?

Michelle said...

No! I think it is actually worse. And it really hurts! And I get my hair cut today so there goes any attempt at hiding them!

oh my goodness! OUCH! It does look terrible! I hope your eye lids are back to normal soon.

Andrea said...

Oh that looks so painful!!! Is there some special cream that you know of that you can put on it that will help it NOT to scar???

Pobrecita! On the bright side, they look like have a nice shape. Just put Neosporin on the red patches; that's what I do when I get waxed!

Stacey said...

Ouch. That looks like it hurts.

Oh my OUCH! You know I didn't even notice the shape of your eyebrows in that photo, like Andrea did. (cringes)

But I do enjoy your dedication to blogging. So much so that you posted a photo.

And at lunch time? That's a bummer.

Seriously!? I took a mini blog vacation and so far the tally is: 1 nightmare-inducing wax job (thank God she wasn't doing your bikini area!) and two root canals.

Wishing it was still 2008?

Hope these feel better!!!!
