Microblading/Permanent Makeup

By now you’ve probably heard of microblading. It’s a fave among beauty bloggers and celeb types, but you may have wondered what on earth’s it’s all about. Spoiler: it’s not some form of brutal knife related torcher.

Here’s the lowdown on microblading!

So, what is microblading?

Microblading is semi-permanent tattooing, which uses tiny blades (microblades) to deposit pigment under the skin of your eyebrows. It provides definition, enhances fullness and can be used to alter the shape of your brows.

How does microblading actually work?

Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery, as it’s also known) uses a specifically designed hand tool, which bleeds pigment into the small scratches on the epidermis to create fine lines mimicking strokes of hair. The overall look is natural and realistic.

Prior to using the blades, a technician will draw and fill in your brows to determine your desired look.

Permanent makeup is a revolutionary method of applying pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. It is also known as
“Micro-pigmentation” and Permanent Cosmetics. The technique is medically proven and specially designed to be completely safe. Permanent makeup is used for a variety of cosmetic enhancements such as permanent eyebrows, eyeliner and lip liner as well as lip colour.

Permanent makeup is not just about colouring your eyes and lips. Other permanent makeup procedures include scar camouflage, areola and nipple restoration, aimed at improving the injuries such as burns, trauma scars, surgery scars, cleft lip, hairline enhancements, to name a few.

Aside from simple time-saving considerations for women (and men) who always want to look their best, permanent cosmetic makeup can genuinely change the lives of those who are unable to apply makeup normally.  Other clients may have thinning, fading or just naturally very pale or narrow brows that are difficult to convincingly fill in with normal cosmetics, or they simply don’t feel comfortable with the application techniques or their ability to find products that are suitable for their skin tone.

  • Eyebrows-Intradermal pigmentation mimics the appearance of the hair in the brow line. It creates fullness.  Never use a brow pencil again.
  • Eyeliner– From very natural lash enhancements to a more defined line, the choice is yours. Never worry about smudges again. This procedure is popular with both male and female clients. Ophthalmologists recommend this procedure for those who are allergic to conventional makeup and for those who wear contact lenses
  • Lip Liner/Colour– Change the size and shape of the lips as well as the colour. This procedure helps prevent lipstick from bleeding into the surrounding skin. Many prefer a very natural look. Others may desire a more dramatic effect. A cleft lip can also be concealed
