Difference between Powder Brows, Microblading and Hairstroke Brows

Difference between Powder Brows, Microblading and Hairstroke Brows

With many various eyebrow tattooing techniques, it is easy to get confused as to which one you should go for. Here I wanted to discuss thethree main methods I offer at my beauty clinic and hopefully help you understand what each involves.

Hair Strokes Brows

This technique is also called 3D Hair Strokes Brows which is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that produces the most natural eyebrow look. The colour pigment is implanted using fine hair strokes. This way it allows tattooed area look as if it is filled with natural hair. This method suits people with no eyebrows, minimal eyebrows or those who want the most natural look. With the incredibly realistic looking results, many people are choosing this method for their eyebrow tattooing over other options.

Powder Filled Brows

This cosmetic tattoo technique produces soft eyebrows resembling eyebrows that have been powdered with conventional eyebrow makeup. Colour pigment is implanted into the skin with the help of two needle types, which are gradually built to look like full eyebrows. You can achieve well-defined eyebrows using this technique. This technique will look quite dark initially however will fade out to get that beautiful soft powdered, groomed look you will love. Eyebrows created with this method will last longer than the hair stroke method, because the pigment covers a larger area of the brow area. Refreshers should be carried out every 2-3years.

Microblading

This technique is produced with a manual tool to create strokes and colour mimicking natural hairs. Microblading is still a tattoo, however it will fade away with time and your lifestyle factors will play a big part in its longevity. Eyebrows tattooed using this method will last a little less than powder filled brows and also less than Hairstroke Nano Brows.

Hairstroke Technique

Hairstroke Technique

It is no secret that eyebrows frame a face and are an essential part of the facial expression. However, years of plucking, unwanted scars, very fair hair or simply no luck given by the Mother Nature can resolve in long and painful hours of an eyebrow drawing beauty routine.

Unfortunately, most of us are no professional makeup artists or beauty technicians either. Sometimes a rushed job half asleep in the morning leaves a lot to be desired for. Poorly defined or uneven brows may make your face appear tired giving a prematurely aged look. This is where the technicians with various brow tattooing techniques come in. You should not hesitate to trust a professional who’s been trained and knows what brow shape, colour and arch will suit your face.

Sometimes technicians combine tattooing techniques to achieve a custom result, however, I would like to talk about the popular hair stroke technique. This wonderful method creates depth, texture and movement producing very realistic eyebrows. Sometimes shading can be added to increase depth and density for a maximum effect. So what do hair stroke eyebrows look like?

The colour pigment is implanted into the skin using very fine needles which produce hair-like strokes imitating natural eyebrows. This clever method gives the most natural results with a very soft healed effect. For the best results, the hair strokes must follow the growth pattern of natural hairs left. If there is no hair left, the beauty technician improvises using their training, knowledge and creativity.

Using a finer needle will provide more delicate hair strokes. The needle implants pigment into the skin with very little trauma at all. The results should last 1-2 years before a touch up is required.

Cosmetic Tattoo Aftercare

Cosmetic Tattoo Aftercare

Once your cosmetic tattoo session is completed, the colour will look around 50% darker than what it will after healing. The colour will lighten and soften over the next few days. The area will feel a little tender, which is normal.

You will be advised to use a good aftercare balm to help with your cosmetic tattoo aftercare which aids the skin in its healing process. You will need to apply it on a SPARINGLY over the first week and then twice a day for the second week. Half a rice grain amount is enough, any more you will smother the area, and stop the air getting to the area needing to heal.

Aftercare points:

  • Avoid sun exposure on the area for the first 14 days. It can cause fading and colour change. Make sure to apply sunscreen to protect the area;
  • Do not apply makeup for at least 48 hours after the treatment;
  • Do not use soap or cleansers on the area for one day following the treatment;
  • Once crusting begins, do not pick it. It will fall off naturally;
  • If you’ve had cosmetic tattoo on your lips, do not use teeth whitening toothpaste, as chemicals in it can affect the colour;
  • If you’ve had cosmetic tattoo on your lips, you need to apply cream constantly as your lips will be very dry;
  • Do not stay in hot sauna or steam room for the next two weeks after the treatment;
  • If you had a cosmetic tattoo on your eyelids, then it is not necessary to apply any cream, but only a small amount if needed.

Summer-proof makeup.

Summer-proof makeup.

With daylight savings and temperatures rising, we are finally getting the first glimpse of summer.

The warm season doesn’t just bring happy moments and fun in the sun, but unfortunately, it also brings the hassle of reapplying your make up after swimming or sweating. Lots of women can relate to the scary moment of getting out of a swimming pool or sea to find their eyebrows are ‘no longer there’!

Summer can also get super busy with dates, coffee catch ups, events, meetings and so on. Time becomes more and more precious to have to do your make up in the morning and then to have to reapply it during the day.

Sweating in the sun or while exercising doesn’t help the situation either let along needing to apply sunscreen which messes up your make up as well.

And of course it needs to be mentioned that summer wouldn’t be the same without outdoor events and festivals! It’s all about spending quality time with your friends while roughing it for a few days and listening to sweet tunes!

Luckily there is a straightforward and effective solution to all of the above – permanent cosmetic tattooing! Not having to stress about the way you look, feeling confident, saving yourself precious time and enjoying your summer is what it’s all about! Frame your face with gorgeous brows, define your eyes and make them pop with perfect eyeliner and enhance your lips with beautiful ombre lip blend tattoo.

Permanent make-up is for women of all ages!

Permanent make-up is for women of all ages!

There is a reason why so many women of all ages are taking advantage of the super quick way of enhancing their natural beauty – permanent make up or Cosmetic Tattooing. It is accessible and affordable, so there is no reason why you shouldn’t try it too. The benefit is priceless – you wake up with already applied make up that suits your face shape and individual preferences.

For older women, permanent make up takes years off their appearance providing more youthful look. It is a much better and less drastic way than plastic surgery.

MICROBLADING/EYEBROW TATTOO

With age, we all lose body hair and this also applies to our eyebrows.

Getting your eyebrows tattooed provides a lifted, more awake look which also freshens the face. You’ll also be getting the brows to compliment your face shape.

 

EYELINER/LASH ENCHANCEMENT

We all know that tired eyes can add years to our appearance! Unfortunately, skin’s elasticity doesn’t last forever and as we age, we start getting wrinkles around our precious eyes.

With permanent eyeliner, the eyes look defined and lashes look fuller. Conventional eyeliner is also difficult to apply, so the benefit here is that you wake up every morning with the makeup done by an expert.

 

OMBRE LIP BLEND TATTOO

Thin lips without colour or definition can certainly make us look older. As we age, we lose pigment and the vermillion border is less defined. By defining lips with colour suitable to your face will make them look fuller and more youthful.
