Permanent Make-up is Challenging and Gratifying

Permanent make-up is challenging and gratifying. And fun. Establishing a relationship with new clients is satisfying. Catching up with clients whom I have not seen for years is always renewing, and I get to feel that connection that began way back when. For this client, I am using a mixture of a 10-needle microblade manual pen with assistance of my electric rotary machine. Color pigments are a mix of taupe and pale brown since I am working with warm undertones. The client is very happy … [Read more...]

Happy Brows Using a Manual Microblade Pen

Just finished tweaking these happy brows using a manual microblade pen. This is a four week follow-up to see the final results. I added extra strokes where needed. I have a very satisfied client from Frederick, MD whose husband surprised her with a Gift Certificate for Christmas. He downloaded the certificate, printed it and paid for it all online. Technology has come a long way. But doing the actual tattooing of micro-pigmentation is void of high tech maneuvers, but is totally reliant on … [Read more...]

Natural Permanent Eyeliner

Before I begin applying permanent eyeliner, I evaluate hair, skin and eye color. My client is of neutral coloring with low contrast. She wanted a very natural look and that's what she got. I was happy my client didn't swell much. Some swelling is normal afterwards. She will apply a very cold compress for five seconds and then lift off so it normalizes temperature. Because I used the thinnest needles, the pigment is applied just under the skin so you don't want to over ice the area. In … [Read more...]

Asymmetrical Eyebrows

My client, a retired principal of a Baltimore County school shows off a highly improved eyebrow. I wanted to achieve a lifted brow without too much drama. She had had her brows done elsewhere before, but the lift you see here was not there. It was low and flat but I do see why. Many of us have a flat brow bone that is different from the other one. If one is flat and the other is not, the symmetry will need to be corrected. On her next visit, I will add a beige color to correct the symmetry. … [Read more...]

Bold Brows

My client, Nikki, came back for a brow refresher.  It had been six years so they were faded and needed a touch-up. The factors that lead to this design were her angular features, her height and personality. In the consult, I had settled on two shapes. One reserved and the other more striking . Her shoulders are broad so all the parts came together. I first laid down a light taupe tone and since it looked a bit boring I added the depth. She will be back for a follow up in four to six weeks. Keep … [Read more...]

How long do eyebrow hair strokes last?

A question I often get asked is how long do eyebrow hair strokes last. Both shading, hair strokes and microblading will fade over time. The depth of the pigment penetration, the needle or needles and diameter of needle play a role. Lifestyle and proper care also contribute to how long the strokes last. Touch-ups can be done after two years, but everyone is different. Skin types--thin, dry oily, acidic are factors that add or diminish staying power. The darker the hair strokes, the longer they … [Read more...]
