The style is casual and natural, “un-plucked” and not heavily contoured/arched compared to the more defined shape of microblading. There’s more space in-between machine hair strokes for graceful long term results. Machine hair strokes are redone every 2-3 years when they have adequately faded.
Normal to Dry Skin: Microblading is ideal for candidates with dry to normal skin and small, unnoticeable pores. Natural hair would be fine and dispersed throughout the brow. If there’s no hair in areas of the brow, addition of shading is needed.
Combination and Oily Skin: These skin types can still get permanent makeup while keeping in mind long term results will vary depending on amount of natural oils in the skin. In oily skin, cells turnover and renew faster than dry skin. That means pigment will get softer-looking faster. A touchup may be needed sooner than someone with dry skin. Adding shading is recommended to get more longevity out of the permanent makeup. Refresh appointments are typically made once a year.
Mature Skin: It’s recommended to avoid microblading the entire brow use shading to complete most of the brow shape. If individual hair strokes are pereferred, machine hair strokes will be the preferred style. The epidermal layer is typically thin so there’s risk when using a microblade to implant pigment.
Lash Enhancement: The most subtle option, adding pigment only to the base of the lashes. This give a boost of depth and color to the lashes like mascara without looking like noticeable eyeliner.
Basic Eyeliner: Thickness of liner is drawn on to the preferences of the client.
Winged Eyeliner: Length and shape of wings is determined by eye shape as well as personal style.
Dusty Eyeliner: This style creates a smokey-eye effect with layers well with eyeshadow. This style automatically comes with a bit of a wing to “hold” the shading within a shape.
Mature Skin: Be advised permanent liner is not ideal for mature clients because the epidermal layer of the eyelid is very thin. There’s risk involved even with an experienced technician.
You may show reference photos of styles you like, but keep in mind everyone’s brows, skin and face are unique, so not all styles are achievable for every person.
In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:
Please be advised permanent makeup is a delicate form of tattooing and there are some medical conditions, medications and circumstances that prevent or delay some clients from getting the service. If you have questions, please send Christina a message.
