If our eyes are the windows to our soul, then I suppose our eyebrows are the window frames to our soul! I don’t know about you, but ever since I’ve started putting on makeup and drawing on my eyebrows, I can’t help but notice people’s eyebrows when I meet them. I always appreciate a thick yet defined set of eyebrows, and personally don’t fancy messy, unruly eyebrows or thin and sparse eyebrows with no defined shape.
How I usually draw my eye brows on… 🙂
You might not know this, but I got an injury that cut through my left eyebrow when I was 15, while foolishly “free-cycling” (read: cycling with my hands off the handle bars) while going down a slope. And for that
silliness bravado, I have a broken badass left eyebrow, like yunno, the kind Korean actor Key has as well:
Well, I’m not Key or a guy for that matter and scars don’t look half as cool on me as it does on him. I prefer to have full and feminine brows! In addition to the eyebrow scars, I also generally have quite sparse eyebrows… So much so that towards the end of the brows, they’re almost missing. Like this:
So a while back, I popped by Browtisan’s again (See my first post on eyelash extension here) for an eyebrow embroidery session. And here’s how it went!
First of all, Coco and I had a chat, she wanted to know what image I wanted and she also gave her expertise as to what eyebrows would suit me. I told her that I like the current thick and straight Korean eyebrow trend and have been sporting it for a while now. Like this:
You can even check out a tutorial on how to get this Korean thick eyebrows here.
She then advised me to get a more feminine set of brows without the edge that I usually draw in for my mid brows. Something like this which looks more feminine:
Instead of this which is more harsh:
So after the little chat, she proceeded to draw on the eyebrows which she designed for me and asked me if I was happy with it. I love the new set of eyebrows she designed for me and then we proceeded to the next step, which is to apply anaesthetic cream before the embroidery:
Then the embroidery session took place. If you’re worried about the pain like I am, don’t be. I have very little tolerance for pain and it didn’t hurt due to the anaesthetic cream. For the most part of the session, it feels like a pin is scratching against your skin. When it did start to hurt towards the end of the embroidery after the effect of the cream is starting is wear off, I told Coco about the pain and she proceeded to apply more anaesthetic cream before resuming again. 🙂 Then there’s application of colouring to darken the embroidered brows:
Who looks cuter, crayon Shin Chan aka 蜡笔小新 or me? 😛
Watch the video and check out how 3D and awesome it looks!:
After the embroidery session, I had to apply a gel on for the next 5 days and also prevent my eyebrows from getting wet when I shower. This is so that the embroidered eyebrow lines won’t get infection and also last longer. Also given is a helpful After Care Tips to follow up on: This is how it looks like with the sticker film on my eyebrows before shower:
How my brows look like in the first 5 days with the gel on, which totally reminded me of Spring Summer 2013 Wet Hair runway fashion trend, albeit on the eyebrows, haha. Who knows, maybe that’s gonna be Spring Summer 2016 Wet Eyebrows look eh? 😉
And here’s how I’ve been sporting my new, definitive yet feminine and, if I may say so myself, all around lovely new eyebrows, much thanks to Coco from Browtisan!
If you want to have definitive and feminine eyebrows, book your appointment with Browtisan via their hotline 6235 2355, they’re conveniently located in Delfi Orchard, 402 Orchard Road, #03-17.
While Coco’s design and embroidery fees will be higher, you can trust her staff which are trained by her to deliver the same service and results. You can also request for her to design the brows and then let her staff to do the embroidery. 🙂
I’ll update again after my touch up session, and also with my newer/current hair colour! 😀
