I actually been struggling for ages whether should I go for an eyebrow embroidery or not, thank goodness I’ve finally made up my mind and did it! I’m sorry, I just have to give up that everyday time-consuming routine to do my eyebrows perfectly even if it may sometimes doesn’t look so perfect. lol!
Okay, let’s have an eyebrow talk. I couldn’t be more excited to share that eyebrow embroidery experience which I had recently.
Many would say that our eyebrows play a significant role as far as physiognomy is concerned. Agree? Yes or Yes? :p
I’m actually not fond of having full make-up. At certain times, I can survive with just a lip tint and a powder on and I’m good to go. Ain’t too boring yah. lol. But wait.. Forget about lip tints and powder but not the eyebrows. haha! Well, most of the time I pluck, draw and color my brows just to have it on fleek.
So how do you girls shape and maintain your brows?
Some of my friends and even me would usually go for eyebrow threading just to shape the brows from time to time but honestly it’s just too painful! I did it for many times and believe me, each time seems like forever a first time. Seriously! I hate that Ouchy thing! Teary eyed, shouting and keep pausing in between. Phew! I wish I knew how to shave my brows, at least in that way it’d be painless but hell I don’t have the skill. So I’m stuck with plucking, twee-zing and then draw and color. Uggh! Doing it everyday is just taking a lot of time. (Sigh) Do you have the same agony as mine? Yes? Then, Iv’e got your back there! You better consider doing what I did to get you out from that agony. 🙂
I Finally did it! Yaay! So, what is eyebrow embroidery?
Eyebrow embroidery is a new beauty trend that efficiently accentuates the eyes by adding coloured pigment to the skin by filling in empty spots on your brows to give them a fuller and more flawless look. Singapore and Korea is among the many nationalities where eyebrow embroidery is being popular. And since I’m currently living in Singapore, to be honest, Iv’e been influenced by its fame here. lol.
It is NOT a tattoo procedure (which is permanent, by the way) in which ink penetrates deep into the dermis. Eyebrow embroidery introduces pigment to the epidermis – the superficial layer of the skin – with minimal intrusion. Using pigment matched to the actual brow color, eyebrow embroidery produces a semi-permanent natural look. The cosmetic procedure is definitely safe (not unless you go for disreputable salon). New and sterilized equipment should be used, and high quality brow color with numbing and antiseptic capabilities to avoid infection and lessen pain. It lasts for up to 2 years. And once it fades, then your time to do the touch up! Ain’t that easy?
I did my brow embroidery at Charme, Far east plaza. Look for Jess or Lee! 🙂
Thank you Ladies!
The embroidery process:
Excuse my thin and long brows. haha!
The entire process took roughly 2 hours and half with quite a portion of the time dedicated to the consultation. Ms. Lee Peng was so patient in shaping my brows, I was too fussy and pretty apprehensive. I worried a lot since this has to do with my face after all. But the service is admirable. I do appreciate Ms. Lee’s patience as she needed to erase and draw again just to achieve the shape which suits me.
Time for numbing cream application and after which, the brow area was covered with a cling wrap for about 20-30mins before the actual process starts.
Voilaaa! Painless and I love it! When I say no pain, trust me. I’m too reliable to say so. Coming from a person whose pain threshold scores 2 out of 10. Oh, Come on! I felt no pain at all, like real!
The process of eyebrow embroidery uses a blade to continuously make small cuts into your skin to place the dye. It’s almost like a tattoo though, except that embroidery deposits the dye only at near the surface of the skin, making it semi-permanent. Too thankful to Ms. Jess Leow, the artist who was so nice and friendly. Keeping me assured that everything is fine since I keep worrying a lot. I know I was so annoying then. haha! I’m sorry, I’m such a worrywart. :p
Jeez! I love it!
I was given a cream to apply twice a day until the color will peel off making it look natural. And PLEASE bare in mind, when some parts start to peel, don’t ever strip off the remaining parts. Just a no-no! Let it peel off completely by itself. It usually will take about a week time but mine started to scab on the 9th day and lucky as I was, on the 10th day all completely removed. Aye!
Day 1 until Day 8 was pretty dark! But I love it still! 🙂
Not until Day 9th and 10th when it actually look so weird. haha! Lucky I have fringes to cover, so it wasn’t really that much of an issue. Eee!
This is the reality you have to face. haha! It will definitely scab once it is completely healed. Fortunately, mine was only for 2 days. 🙂
Are you ready for the effortless eyebrows on fleek?
Didn’t it look more natural? Take note, it’s effortless! Woohoo!
Now I’m thinking for another semi-permanent procedure. Can you actually guess what it is? haha!
