It is said that the beauty industry is valued at a whopping $445 BILLION right now and with the ever changing beauty trends that I’ve seen over the years, it is really no surprise. Make up products are constantly flying off the racks (I’m talk about you, @sunniesface) and recently semi permanent make up has been the greatest thing since cheese. I take that back, NOTHING IS BETTER THAN CHEESE. But you get the gist.
It took me a while to get on the bandwagon for the reason that the industry was so new and I couldn’t take any risks. Up until this day there are semi permanent make up artists popping up left & right and it was crucial for me to watch the industry grow so I could eventually weed out the choices and select the one artist that I absolutely trusted. It’s not being elitists or anything ha, bati na gani ko ug kilay daan delikado ug ma bati pa gyud ug samot.
I have no regrets in trusting Mikee Libi of Winked because her light hand & keenness to detail is really what you are investing in. Anyone with hands can learn how to micro blade but it takes someone with her skill and precision to turn a clump of hair on your forehead into a set of beautiful brows you can actually be proud of.
If you watch the video, you will see how anxious I was about the entire procedure but now, I have no regret in my heart that I trusted Mikee. You will also see that I bombarded her with questions pre-procedure because I really could not risk anything going wrong but the results were and are AMAZING!
Shocking, I know.
And while this is only the 1st part of my blog/ vlog entries, you can tell as early as now that the transformation is nothing short of amazing. At P8,000.00/ 2 sessions (1 month interval per session) for brows that will last up to 2 years, I would definitely say that it is worth the investment.
Should you be interested in contacting Mikee Libi, feel free to message her Facebook and/ or Instagram.
Winked is located at Le Beau Monde Salon, Rivergate Bldg., Gen. Maxillom Ave, Cebu City.
I’ve previously talked about NoStrips Waxing Salon on this blog before and I constantly rave about them on social media. In the last 3 months, I’ve consistently relied on them to take care of my eyebrows, upper lip, underarms, lower legs and my Brazilian waxing and/ or threading.
It felt a little risque to talk about something COMPLETELY NORMAL/ NATURAL as a vagina on Facebook and Youtube but I’m a woman and I am not ashamed to talk about the part of my body that gives me so much power and surprisingly, the outcome was pleasant.
If I’m being honest, I think it’s so taboo and so unmodern of people to be ashamed to talk about their vaginas and the care that it needs. Not only is it naive, it also brings up a larger problem such as: are women given the proper education about their bodies?
At a party I attended recently, I shared the importance of Kegel exercises in women especially after birth and other vaginal exercises which are important for any and every woman and I was surprised at the reaction of my peers. It was so foreign to them that in return, I felt like I shouldn’t be talking about it so openly. But you know, I never know when it’s ok or not ok to say stuff so I have nothing to be sorry about. It’s just a vagina. It’s not like I was being racist.
So I decided to create this video where I sat down and talked to my waxpert Jen about Brazilian waxing and everything that any typical person would ask them. I am literally just touching the SURFACE (literally & figuratively) in this video, but the feedback I’ve received has definitely made me realize how much more we still have to learn. I like that I am realizing these things though.
I would love to talk about it so more but maybe in another post as I think there is potential for this topic. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this video and the insight I have to share with you this afternoon.
Again especially to the ladies, do not feel ashamed to get the care/ help that you need. It’s so liberating.
