Semi permanent make-up techniques for brows
Feather Touch Brows
Feather touch brows also known as hair stroke brows mimic natural hairs. Fine ‘hair strokes’ of pigment are implanted under the skin to create a natural looking brow. This treatment is ideal for people experiencing hair loss and not after brow wow. Colours are customised to compliment your skin tone and hair colour. This technique offers a structured natural looking brow.
Exactly what the name means the ‘powder brow’ aims to look like your brow powder or pencil. Pigment is applied using a technique that covers the brow area keeping softer in the bulb and upper part of the brow to look soft and natural. Powder brows give depth, definition, and results in a more ‘made up’ make up look. When healed, you will enjoy a permanent, defined but soft powdered effect. Colour is carefully combined to compliment your skin tone and hair colour to naturally blend with your facial features.
Powder brows are the absolute best option for oily skin types and cost effective for people on a budget.
Wanting brow wow then this is the ultimate brow procedure. Both powder brow and hair stroke techniques are combined to achieve a natural defined brow. The inner brow is feathered with hair strokes while the tails are powdered for perfect definition. Hair strokes are also added around the outer line of the arch to soften the powdered tails. The ‘combination brow’ is for those wanting to achieve celebrity looks.
For feather and solid eyebrow tattooing procedures are customised for each individual client. We like to allow two and half to three hours for these procedures. We use this time to take before/after photos, consult with you, help you choose your perfect colour, and help you with the perfect eyebrow that best suits your face.
Various tattooing techniques are used to achieve different looks.
An eyelash enhancement is a favoured technique for an extremely natural look. Pigment is placed only between the eyelashes making eyes pop and look bigger without obvious eyeliner look.
Eyeliner is placed in a thin, medium or thick line around eye line, depending on how you wear your makeup everyday. Winged effects can be done with complete consultation to avoid big wings as this can be an issue when getting older and eye area dropping.
It’s important to note that you will need to wait two weeks after eyelash perm. Also no false eyelashes and no contact lenses in. Clients should bring glasses if needed.
Gorgeous lip line and blend or full lip tattoo is the perfect way to achieve more definition and wakeup in your makeup colour for busy ladies. Lip line only is NOT an option. Clients are guided with the choice of defined lip line or undefined lip line (like a soft colour wash). Most clients like a defined lip line resulting in a full bigger lip aesthetic. Tattoing close towards the lips white boarder will give impression of a fuller lip (definitely no tattooing outside the lip line). The ’thing’ with all tattooing is how it looks after 6 and 12 months. Tattooing outside the lip line can look good for 3 months then again…. terrible after that time requiring tattoo removal. Lip tattoos are an amazing effect to enhance overall facial features and brighton complexion.
Clients get to choose from softest pink pigments or natural colour to the brightest coral, red or pink. A large colour choice is available using best quality pigments. Lip colouring is superb for busy women, women getting older and loosing their lip colour and definition, or women who have lost their natural lip line after having lip filler. Most womens lips get paler and bluer with age so lip tattoo is great for them. There is the addd bonus that the tattooing will stimulate collagen production (similar to skin needling). Younger clients with freckles have benefited from a lip tattoo to make freckles less visible.
