No woman has not asked themselves, how did they achieve that? Ladies, technology has gone far enough to develop a tool and gave these artistic people an idea of how they can apply it to humans.

Can we call it a face enhancer? Probably, yes! Most celebrities have gone through almost all kind of plastic surgeries, applied and even took all kinds of beauty products to maintain their glow! However, not all have an idea that our brows could make us look young and thin. Did it make you raise your brows? Yes, it’s true! A bold and in angular shape can make your face look thinner. However, your thought makes you wanna cry! Why? Thinking of doing your brows would eat so much of your time. You gotta do some tweezing, or plucking. Wax, everyone? Or, a little ouch on threading! And, that makes you want to give up and just live with it!

Worry no more, Ladies and even gents! The history of tattoo traveled so far and evolve into a more modern way of creating art on the skin. Let us have some little trivia. Have you ever asked yourself where did Microblading start? Many said that it started in Japan, some mentioned China. However, the origin of Microblading has not been known yet, it originated in Asia. Then, just a few years ago, the cosmetic tattoo was born again. Many estheticians went through extensive training and enhanced their skills in permanent makeup. Now, a lot of women are into it and everyone wants to have that young looking and timeless eyebrows.

Our artist is here to help achieve your long dreamed brows. With the latest tools, we are going to measure, draw the brows that suit your skin tone and let you choose the size, shape, and color to your liking.

So, what is Microblading? It is a technique that yields hair-like stroke brows. This procedure is great for people that have Alopecia, or probably have suffered some hair loss. You can choose between microblading, microshading and a combination of microblading and microshading. Microblading is done using a manual tool – hair-like stroke while But, there is more! Microshading or ombre, on the other hand, is another technique that results in a powder-filled look. This is a self-confidence booster!  Isn’t it great? Plus, these last for 2-3 years. When the two combines, then, you will always have that “ I woke up like this” brows.

Just like the quote ” Behind every great beauty is a great brow”. So, let your brows talk for you!

Everyone wanted to look younger, no matter what age you are in.

Nowadays, some men and women sometimes think that they wish they could be a little younger. Yes! I really do think on that sometimes. We are all beautiful in our own way but for those mornings that you wake up, seeing yourself not like the same anymore as you were younger before. You really might want to know the best way to turn the clock back.

Benefits of Permanent makeup

You will save absolutely a lot of time. For women, it is a daily routine which spending 15 minutes every morning filling in your eyebrows. Some women simply find it a big struggle to draw their brows themselves and are not confident in their work. You will be relieved to know that microblading/microshading will allow you to skip that part of your morning routine and most importantly, have the confidence you deserve.

Want a dewy glow of a teenager or just like a fresh look every day? Here are ways on how to keep your look younger.

 

Thin and messy eyebrows

Waking up seeing your brows so thin and messy. You need to draw and fill in some eyebrow pencil on it every day. Making sure you will go out with bolder and darker brows. Like how it takes a lot of your time. As it gives attention to your eyes.

On the other hand, with microblading and microshading, everything is possible. You can achieve the perfect brows that blend on your appearance.

It will also give a big role by determining the right shape for your brows. There are six kinds of face shape that we should know. Choosing the right shape that compliments to your face will be a great.

  1. For oval face shape – softly angled brow
  2. For round face shape – an angled brow is perfect for this
  3. For long face shape – extend the tails of your brows
  4. For square face shape – don’t make your brows too angular
  5. For heart face shape – keep brows well-manicured and groomed.
  6. For diamond face shape – need more arch on the brows

Who will benefit from the eyebrow microblading/microshading?

Eyebrows are an important part of how your face looks. Not everyone is born with perfect eyebrows so that is why makeup was invented. Makeup is not the most convenient thing to use every day and in some cases very hard to use. Permanent makeup will allow an expert artist to shape it to your features and bring out the best in you. The following cases benefit the most from microblading.

  1. If you have no eyebrows or thin eyebrows.
  2. If your eyebrows are sparse or over-plucked.
  3. If fair/blond eyebrows and find that pencil wears off quickly.
  4. If you suffer from sensitive skin or allergies.
  5. If you suffer or have suffered from alopecia.
  6. If you have undergone chemotherapy.

 

Give your lips a fuller and plumper look

 

Lip augmentation or lip enhancement can give you a boost in both self-esteem and self-confidence. The end result should be a balance within the face, allowing your eyes, cheeks, nose and lips to become harmonious. Augmenting the lips so they appear fuller and more luscious creates a healthier appearance and sensual appeal. This improved appearance can have a big effect on how you feel about yourself.

What is done before and during the procedure?

First of all, avoid all platelet inhibitors such as aspirin, alcohol and NSAID’s (and anything that contains those ingredients) for 7-10 days before your procedure. Also, eat pineapple during this time period. Make sure that your injector is very experienced in lip augmentation, and ask them to inject very slowly since the faster the injection, the more it hurts and the more chance of bruising. After the injections, do not “use” your lips for anything except eating…..and use ice packs at least 20 minutes per hour until the swelling goes down. Remember to sleep with your head elevated so that there is less chance of swelling in your lips overnight.

 

Have it wide and make it look lush

Cosmetic makeup is advantageous not only for those who wish to save time applying it but also for those with allergies or sensitive skin who may not otherwise be able to wear eyeliner. It may also help those women who have visual impairment who may not able to apply to make up daily.

The art of tattooing and permanent makeup have been practised for centuries all around the world. For many people, it drastically improves the quality of life by reducing the time needed for preparation before leaving the house and also from cleaning up after returning home at night. Many people who do not have the skills to draw in eyebrows or eyeliner can now be worry free. Be on the look! And walk every day with the youthfulness in you.

 

Micro-pigment brands and types

 

 

 

 

We use a few different brands of micro-pigment at our studio. There are many different skin types and they react differently to each person. We use the combinations that we know work best for your skin type. All ink used is specially made for semi-permanent makeup, not tattoo ink. There are minor, but important differences between the two.

We use micropigment from a few different companies to get the optimal result for each skin type. All the manufacturers that we work with have stringent quality control and meet the USA or EU standards.

We use the following brands:

  • Biotouch – one of the most well known micro-pigment companies.
  • SofTap Permanent Cosmetics – another well-known company.
  • Li Pigments – Li Pigments have been manufacturing for over 25 years.
  • Phibrows – Phibrows is another famous company in the eyebrows industry.

Do you also use an organic ink?

Colors plays a vital role in permanent makeup. Here are two types of pigments that are normally used; organic and inorganic pigments. Whenever we hear organic or natural pigment, we tend to be attracted assuming that it is the best product, but don’t be fooled. Organic pigment is anything that is vegetable based, chemical compounds can be used during color production to stabilized the organic pigments. It is more risky for it’s the natural products in vegetables and herbs that can cause allergic reactions for some people. On the other hand, inorganic pigments use chemical formulations. Iron oxide rarely cause allergic reactions and had shown to be the safest pigment. It is well known for it’s color durability and stability. Exposure to sunlight or chemicals can take away the bright color of organic pigments

How to determine the right lip color?

Choosing the right lip shade

Many women have dealt with finding the right color for their lips. Plus, the hassle of putting a lipstick on. Also, women tend to bite their lips and it causes for the lipstick to fade. Permanent makeup has been a solution for many. However, how will we know what color will fit for you?

Know your skin tone – In a natural lighting, check your skin tone to determine your real complexion.

√ Fair or Light Skin – light pink, coral, peach, nude, and dusty red colors
√ Medium – rose, berry, cherry red, and mauve lipstick
√ Tan – rock coral, deep pink, bright red except for brown and purple shades
√ Deep – brown and purple shades like plum, caramel, wine, and blue-based reds

Check your under skin tone – Those with cool undertones tend to have fairer skin, while those with warm undertones have a golden or olive hue. Neutral undertones have mixtures of warm and cool undertones.

“The perfect shade is the one that makes you feel the best. Even if it breaks all the color rules, you should always wear colors that make you happy,” says Le.

 

Important things before and during lip enhancement procedure and it’s recovery time

Avoid all platelet inhibitors such as aspirin, alcohol and NSAID’s (and anything that contains those ingredients) for 7-10 days before your procedure. Also eat pineapple during this time period. Make sure that your injector is very experienced in lip augmentation, and ask them to inject very slowly since the faster the injection, the more it hurts and the more chance of bruising. After the injections, do not “use” your lips for anything except eating…..and use ice packs at least 20 minutes per hour until the swelling goes down. Remember to sleep with your head elevated so that there is less chance of swelling in your lips overnight.

Every patient’s recovery time is different after any procedure. Typically, lip swelling after filler will significantly decrease after 2-3 days but for some patients it may last as long as 5-7 days. Any swelling or bruising should be completely gone by two weeks. We recommend that you increase your water in-take before and after injection.

Lip augmentation or lip enhancement can give you a boost in both self-esteem and self-confidence. The end result should be a balance within the face, allowing your eyes, cheeks, nose and lips to become harmonious. Augmenting the lips so they appear fuller and more luscious creates a healthier appearance and sensual appeal.

Is Microblading recommended with dark skin tone?

 

The previous salon where I inquire decline me to have my brows Microbladed. I was told I can’t have mine done.

Everyone is welcome to have this treatment done. May it be light skin tone or dark depending on their need threshold. Women with darker skin tend to have an oilier skin that causes blurry out hair-like stroke. In other words, pigment implanted in the brows area will not stay longer. Expert enhances the pigment by adding vitamin C as a color brightener in order to hold the pigment to lighten gradually. In this line, technology is improving to meet the needs of the client for precision. Women with dark skin tone must be very careful enough in choosing the perfect place for their Microblading procedure. Not all specialist can perform this treatment on non-caucasian skin. Rarely of contrast between the dark skin tones and pigments that was being used, so the aestheticians may not used on work across the skin tones won’t be able to deliver realistic results.

Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing procedure that is helping folks like me get their entire lives in order.

There is no difference in microblading for dark skin, fair skin or medium skin. In each category there are different skin types, undertones and thickness. The only difference is in the healed results.

Aftercare is extremely important! And you should remember that microblading is a team effort between you and your technician. Make sure you follow all the instructions and use only the product you were provided by your artist. Do not google. There is no one right way in the aftercare and it different depends on the place you choose. You’ll be provided with aftercare kit right after procedure, aftercare will be explained in detail and you’ll have a copy of the instructions to take home.

In permanent make up, skin types can be a factor in choosing which technique best suits each client. Having oily skin is a bit challenging with Microblading because it tends to push-out the ink when applied. For clients who has this type of skin, we recommend the Microshading technique.

Yes! Microblading works on all skin tones and colors. Dark skin will look powdery and you would see less hair details than in light complexion. Both techniques can be applied for this.

Permanent eyeliner benefits and its effects

 

Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eyelining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids.

Cosmetic makeup is advantageous not only for those who wish to save time applying it, but also for those with allergies or sensitive skin who may not otherwise be able to wear eyeliner. It may also help those women who have visual impairment who may not able to apply make up daily.

Immediate side effects following permanent eyeliner application include swelling that lasts anywhere from two to 72 hours after application. Also, the eyeliner color typically appears much darker for up to as many as 10 days after the procedure. Upper Eyeliner procedure takes 1 hour and for the regular upper and lower eyeliner procedure will take 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete.

Aftercare instructions for eyeliner:
To achieve the best results of the permanent make up, you must follow the aftercare instructions provided by your artist. For eyeliner, you must avoid the following:

  • No contact lenses on the day of your procedure
  • Sauna or Jacuzzi for at least 3 days
  • Hot showers
  • Eyelash curlers for 2-3 days
  • Any eye makeup for 5 days until flaking is done
  • No soaps, or facial wash on the pigmented area for 2-3 days
  • Chlorine pools for at least a week
  • Terry towels
  • Mascara for 5 days
  • Driving for 8 hours long before and after the procedure
  • Take a shower with no direct contact of the pigmented area. Do not rub your eyes. Fading on the first application is part of the healing period.

Can I do the eyeliner service if I have lash extensions?
Eyelash extension should be remove as it interfere with the service so you will need to get it removed before the procedure. After your procedure, we recommend refraining from applying make up for three days (72 hours). Avoid using an eyelash curler for two weeks. Do not expose your healing skin to direct shower spray, skin creams, ointments, or lotions other than what you have been instructed to use for at least 3 days following your procedure.

Can I do two services in one day?
Yes, a combination of all of our services can be done in the same day.

Permanent makeup can last up to 1 year before needing to be retouched. It all depends on your skin type, how often your skin gets exposed to the sun and how your body reacts to the ink. Typically it goes like this. You get the procedure done and four to six weeks later you come back in for a touch-up. Every six month from that point you would come back for touch-ups to keep the shape and the strokes fresh. Many people do retain the pigment very well and are able to keep the permanent makeup looking good for over a year.

All our artist are well-trained and certified to do the procedure as they are determined to give happiness through permanent makeup.

Will the procedure be 100% satisfaction guaranteed?

 

We want our clients to be completely satisfied with the results of their permanent makeup procedures. Therefore, we spend a quality amount of time throughout the whole process of our service to ensure that our clients are happy with the results. We also encourage clients to come in for a follow-up visit 6-8 weeks after the initial treatment.

Our brows are not identical but with the help of microblading procedure uneven brows may be corrected. Its normal for the first procedure to appear mismatched. It may look like your brows are coming completely off, but don’t let it freak you out because some of it is normal. It takes time for your brows to settle. You may experience patchy and may have uneven areas.

Immediately after the procedure, it will look natural but will darken up while healing. Eventually they will lighten up when fully heal. Every hair stroke is hand drawn by the professional to mimic natural hair strands to achieve a less made-up look.

The art of tattooing and permanent makeup have been practiced for centuries all around the world. All the pigments that we use are cosmetic-grade, which means that they are sterilized and purified for cosmetic use. The ingredients used in the ink are also approved by the FDA for cosmetic applications. The brand that we use also meets EU guidelines for cosmetics.

Be careful with artists using low-quality brands or counterfeit products which have not met stringent safety standards. It is the technician’s responsibility to ensure proper sanitation and prevent possible infection. Clients should advise their service provider if they plan to undergo laser treatment, Botox, dermabrasion, peels, etc. MRIs do not present a problem with the type of ink we use, but it is always good to inform your service provider if you have concerns.

Individuals should not make their choices lightly. We always recommend clients do their research, understand the procedure and compare different artists’ work and portfolio when making their decisions. Our brow technicians will do their utmost to shape and style the eyebrows to the clients satisfaction prior to the procedure. Every effort will be made to achieve an even appearance, but please realize our faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Uneven appearance can be fixed during the touch up session. Pigment discoloration and color correction can also be fixed during the the touch up session. Microbladed brows will eventually fade away if no additional touch ups are done.

Important things before and during Lip enhancement procedure

 

First of all, avoid all platelet inhibitors such as aspirin, alcohol and NSAID’s (and anything that contains those ingredients) for 7-10 days before your procedure. Also eat pineapple during this time period. Make sure that your injector is very experienced in lip augmentation, and ask them to inject very slowly since the faster the injection, the more it hurts and the more chance of bruising. After the injections, do not “use” your lips for anything except eating  and use ice packs at least 20 minutes per hour until the swelling goes down. Remember to sleep with your head elevated so that there is less chance of swelling in your lips overnight.

Full Lips/Ombre Lips procedure is one of the latest techniques in the line of permanent make up. The initial must be followed by a touch up procedure 3 months from the first session. The more natural look effect, the more fading effect. So touch up must be done to freshen up. Also, it is required since the lips are very vascular and the body metabolizes the lip color at a rapid rate compared to other body parts which are not as vascularized. It is a surgical or non-surgical lip enhancement technique. A procedure that would give a fuller and plumper appearance to the lips giving clients a more desirable result.

Recovery time for Lip Enhancement

Every patient’s recovery time is different after any procedure. Typically, lip swelling after filler will significantly decrease after 2-3 days but for some patients it may last as long as 5-7 days. Any swelling or bruising should be completely gone by two weeks. We recommend that you increase your water in-take before and after injection.

What are the aftercare instructions for lips?

It takes about a month for the lips to be fully healed from the initial procedure. You must avoid the following during the healing process:

  • You must drink with a straw
  • When it feels chap, do not peel it
  • Do not apply any soap
  • Avoid too much UV exposure
  • No oral activity
  • Apply some gloss as it helps during healing period

The end result should be a balance within the face, allowing your eyes, cheeks, nose and lips to become harmonious. Augmenting the lips so they appear fuller and more luscious creates a healthier appearance and sensual appeal. This improved appearance can have a big effect on how you feel about yourself.
