Today’s women can consider themselves lucky — they have access to a wide range of beauty services to make themselves feel more confident. If you’ve ever wanted an #iwokeuplikethis look, you’re in luck. This dream is easily achievable with one of these latest inventions — semi-permanent makeup. However, if you’re late to the semi-permanent makeup trend, don’t fret. There’s more to it than just lash lifts. Here’s all you need to know about one of the most popular semi-permanent forms of makeup out there: eyebrow embroidery.
What is eyebrow embroidery?
Eyebrow embroidery is a form of semi-permanent makeup. It uses pigment to darken the skin under your eyebrows. This technique helps fill in the sparse areas of your eyebrows, thereby making them look fuller and thicker. Your brows help frame your face, and well-defined brows will make you look younger, too!
Who is eyebrow embroidery suitable for?
Eyebrow embroidery is suitable for anyone looking to define and enhance their eyebrows.
How does eyebrow embroidery work?
Before anything, your eyebrow artist will discuss what your preferred shape would be, as well as recommend shapes based on your face and facial features. Afterwards, the outline will be drawn out with an eyebrow pencil, making adjustments along the way if needed. Numbing cream will then be applied to the area. When that is done, it is time to begin the process. A needle-like blade will be used to make small cuts in the topmost layer of the skin, where the pigment will be applied. The strokes will mimic the natural growth of real hair, making it as realistic as possible. The process can take up to 2 hours.
Is eyebrow embroidery painful?
Eyebrow embroidery is not painful, but may cause slight discomfort when the incisions are made in the skin.
How long does eyebrow embroidery last?
Eyebrow embroidery can last up to 3 years, with touch-ups in between.
Where can I get eyebrow embroidery done?
While eyebrow embroidery is a relatively safe procedure, you don’t want to go just anywhere for it. For one, the blades need to be sanitised properly, or you’d be at risk of infection. In a time like this, you’d definitely want to fork out a little for to guarantee your safety. Also, the eyebrow artist should be a certified and experienced one — you certainly wouldn’t want to go 3 years with the wrong eyebrow colour!
