The Perfect Consultation

No comments

What goes into a perfect brow consultation?  First I want to hear from you, and what your expectations are.  Some clients bring in photos, or pencil in their brows to show what they are used to. Usually it is enough to describe what you want, or just leave it to me.

I then take our own brow pencil, and DRAW the brow on your face.  I draw each stroke and both brows so you can see the overall effect and balance.  This is very important.  And if you are doing a consult elsewhere, insist on the specialist drawing BOTH brows and drawing each stroke.  If they can’t do it with a brow pencil, they certainly won’t be able to do it with the microblading tool!

Every face is structured differently, and so every brow is different too.

I also discuss color, what is most appropriate for your hair color and skin tone/ undertone.

And I review the entire procedure, and answer any questions.  The whole consult usually takes 30 minutes.

I love doing consults– when clients see what is possible, the excitement is real!

What is Microblading?

No comments

There’s been a lot of talk on here about semi-permanent fabulous eyebrows, knows as “everlasting brows”, using a technique called microblading. But what exactly IS microblading? We’ve pooled together sources from everywhere to give you the most comprehensive explanation we can, to answer all those burning questions about this hot new trend!

Here are the basics:

  • Microblading uses a row of thin needles to create a semi-permanent tattoo
  • The thin needles make fine marks on the skin that resemble hairs
  • Pigment (colour) is applied into each fine etch to mimic eyebrow hairs exactly
  • Colours from blonde through red to brown and black are possible with custom mixes made for each person
  • The manual technique creates much finer hair strokes than traditional eyebrow tattooing can
  • The results last up to 18 months
  • Microblading does not affect your natural hair growth in any way
  • The initial result is slightly darker/more vibrant than the final healed look 4 weeks later which is a softer result

The Benefits of Microblading

No comments

Eyebrows give a distinct beauty to your face. If your eyebrows are too light or too sparse, Microblading enhances the look of your eyebrows without having to use any expensive kits. Microblading provides an uplifting and refreshing look to your eyebrows and your face looks gorgeous!

How does it work?
Microblading applies a perfectly matched color pigment under your skin that gives your eyebrows a fuller, darker look. The pigmentation is not applied deep within the skin as in permanent makeup. This makes your eyebrows look more natural.

How does microblading help?

Reduces the time to get ready in the morning
Before you go to work or move out of the house, you spend a lot of time making yourself look presentable. Makeup takes a lot of time and can be a tiresome task to do every day! With Microblading, your eyebrows are already perfect, and you can spend less amount of time on makeup every day.

It does not smudge or smear
The pigment is implanted into the first 3 layers of the skin and will not smudge due to water or smear off if you touch it. You no longer have to worry about touch ups throughout the day.

It lasts long enough
Depending on environmental factors, Microblading lasts for around 1 – 3 years. It is kind of a semi permanent makeup.

It’s safe
Microblading, when performed by an experienced makeup artist, is definitely safe.
Microblading is virtually painless and gives a new charm and glamour to your face!
