So you just need a little extra something.....

This lovely client is another perfect example of the type of person who can really benefit from cosmetic tattoo, despite not wearing much makeup day to day. She is very low maintenance but still filled in her brows every day because of a scar and bald areas from over plucking. We re-created her made up look so she won't need to spend time in the morning doing brow makeup. Once healed (10-14 days) the fresh tattoo will fade into a natural, subtle look.

Microstroke training with Daria Chuprys!

IMG_0167.JPG

Last weekend I attended advanced training in micro blade technique with Daria Chuprys! I am SO glad I went and am very excited to apply all of my learnings in the studio going forward. I personally believe that the best results for most people come from a combination of hair strokes (micro blade) and a powder fill. This photo is of a 100% hair stroke brow. I will post some combo photos in the next posts for comparison. 

Powder Filled Brow Progression

This is a front view of a powder filled brow with an ombre effect.  This client really wanted to have a natural effect and keep the front part of her brow completely bare to give an emphasized ombre effect. Each client will want very different effects which is why we do not use a one-size fits all approach at Adorn. She healed really well so we barely had to add any more color in her touch up. Top to bottom: Bare brows, healed after the 1st appointment, and immediately after her touch up.

The Design Process

Of utmost importance in the process of microblade or any other brow service is designing and marking out the brows to insure they are even. This can actually take longer than the service itself!  On my About Me page I share that I had always had massively uneven brows, so much so that I had to avoid certain styles of sunglasses because one brow would peek out above the glasses but not the other! Once I had my brows done I no longer had this problem and I am so glad I am able to help others who have significant brow asymmetry. Some schools of permanent makeup theory say that you should freehand the design of the brow to work with the natural shape. I am more than happy to accommodate that request but please know that if you would like to even out your brow shape I will take all the time we need to make sure they are as even as possible.

Before and After!

This photo shows the progression from the client's own makeup to her brows with no makeup, to right after the procedure. In the "Baby Blues" post you can see the clients healed brows after one session. This is a powder filled brow. We will be adding hair strokes to add dimension in her second appointment. For very pale blondes with little naturally visible hair it is important to add a background to the brow for a polished look.

Baby Blues with Beautiful Powder Filled Brows!

Here is a photo I was just sent by a client who wanted to re-create her day-to-day makeup look so went for a powder fill.  She is very particular since she is a makeup artist herself so I am beyond thrilled with how happy she is with her new brows! I will post a before and after of her with no makeup but suffice to say this will be saving her a lot of time in her day-to-day routine! This is the healed result after two sessions.

During the Healing Process....

This is a selfie I got the other day from my client with the very sharp arches (sorry about the fuzzy picture quality!). She is most of the way through the healing process in this picture.  As you can see the color has softened quite a bit and the brows are still in the process of exfoliating.  The initial healing process takes about 10 days, during which time you must avoid pools, saunas, and hot tubs, major sun exposure, facials, and wearing makeup.
