The Daily Eyebrow Challenge

Before- Clients drawing



  Like many women, this client struggled everyday to create symmetrical eyebrows. Sometimes our facial morphology or bone structures, or artistic flair make this task difficult.  I often hear that women spend 30 minutes a day applying their eyebrows.
Permanent makeup can definitely save you time.

Permanent Eyebrows can be done many ways. Heavy, soft, barely there, transparent in color, solid in color, feathery, hair strokes, the combination is endless. My preference is of course the most natural possible....however, that doesn't always satisfy the clients desire. What permanent makeup goers should understand is that you can always apply just a dash of eyebrow powder or pencil over your permanent makeup when you want more color. Ask yourself this:

Immediately after permanent makeup
 "Do you want to wake up everyday feeling like you need to catch up rest of your makeup to your permanent makeup, especially before yoga class, your run or bike ride?" Don't get me wrong, I wear makeup everyday. I just don't want to have to hide or disguise something relatively permanent.

Somehow our traditional topical makeup resonates just fine in the public eye, however once someone knows you have tattooed brows, liner or lips there is a hesitation of sorts...So make your end goal with permanent makeup natural, pretty, not too heavy...you can always add more. Wake up comfortable.


        Of course I don't always win this "do it more natural" conversation, but I will try.

Who can benefit from permanent makeup?
Some women are too busy to apply makeup and want to look their best all day, or they may find it physically difficult to apply makeup due to poor eyesight, impaired motor skills, or unsteady hands. Active and athletic people, as well as those with oily skin or little defining facial hair also benefit from the smudge-free and lasting effects of permanent cosmetics.

What is Eyebrow Embroidery?


 Have you heard of  'Eyebrow Embroidery'?

Before
I recently traveled to Asia to refine the hand tool method of eyebrow embroidery.  That word embroidery just didn’t make sense until I actually did the technique.  Using a  hand tool like a pen with several needles, which are soldered together forming a curve shape, the needles are inserted into the pen and then color is delicately placed into the skin with a rocking like sewing motion...hence eyebrow embroidery. Working hair by hair building the brow color requires patience and focus. Just as important as the technique is the eyebrow design.

After -permanent eyebrows
Is Eyebrow Embroidery the same as Permanent Eyebrows?  Yes, they are both intended to leave permanent color in the skin.  The permanency of the color will fade with time, hence semi-permanent makeup, and also fades with sun exposure, activities and body chemistry.  Eyebrow embroidery is a typical Asian name for eyebrow tattooing.  However, it is typically a softer looking technique (than the harsh solid block stenciled tattoo) when done using hand tools and can produce an incredibly fine hair stroke.   Hair stroke eyebrows or feather stroke eyebrows is a technique simulating the natural eyebrow hair. Artfully placed strokes, adds dimension, movement and volume to the sparse eyebrow.

The hair stroke technique can produces fine wisp of color however it can get blurry especially with certain skin types. In general, the smaller the stroke the better. The downside is that  hair strokes are less color than doing a full background color in an eyebrow and typically fade faster. However, they add a natural dimension to the brow.  Often shading and strokes are combined depending on the desired outcome.

Needle Inspection-I have a research mind and always want to know more!
As a permanent makeup artist working on a variety of  skin types including post cancer skin, scarred skin, young and old,  I have found the combination of techniques I’ve learned to be very useful.
This manual technique is wonderful to add for my diverse clientele as well as students who are taking the advanced eyebrow curriculum.  It comes down to the saying “ the more you know”… 

The field of permanent makeup is ever changing and so are techniques. In my opinion educating myself and researching the international field is very important for continued growth.
