Our lovely Siobhan tells us why she chose to have semi permanent eyebrows…
Semi permanent makeup is a game changer. Without a doubt one of the best decisions I have ever made! We are always looking for ways to make our morning routine as easy and quick as possible and having permanent eyebrows has definitely helped!
We all know the struggle of trying to get our eyebrows to sit even and sometimes the eyebrow pencil isn’t your best friend. I found that I could spend ages in the mornings just trying to perfect my brows and as a HD brow stylist, I felt the pressure to make sure my eyebrows were PERFECT every day but this just isn’t always possible or realistic.
I had never been too unhappy with my natural brows but there just wasn’t as much definition there as I wanted. Some people are blessed with amazing full brows but this just wasn’t the case for me. I had never over plucked in the past but my brows just weren’t growing and full as I’d like. When I joined the boutique, I saw some of our semi-permanent makeup artist Jasmin’s amazing work and soon realised that this is exactly what I needed. It really helped me to put my trust in her when I could see her amazing work that she was creating for so many happy clients.
First I had to decide what style I wanted. I could either have hair strokes to keep it super natural, or have combination brows which is a mixture of hair strokes and shading, or I could go bolder and more defined with full shading!
I came to the decision that I was going to start with just hair strokes and see how I liked them, knowing that I would be having an initial top up a few weeks after my first treatment so I could always go bolder then if I felt a bit braver. I loved them! but found that I was still pencilling over the top of them which made me realise that I wanted to go a little bolder.
In my top up I had some shading added through my brows but kept some hair strokes at the fronts. This created a lovely combination brow which was just the perfect amount of definition for me. What’s great about this treatment is that it is only a yearly top up they need. I tend to time my top up just before I go on holiday, so a couple of months before, I book in with Jasmin which gives them plenty of time to heal before going in the sun.
I personally still like to have the full HD brow sculpt treatment as well just to add a little texture back into the brows. Lifting the hairs of the brows to a more upright position can make a big difference as it makes them appear a lot fluffier. You can create such an amazing full brow with HD sculpt, especially with the semi-permanent makeup underneath!
I now look back at pictures from before I had my semi permanent eyebrows and I can’t believe I never had it sooner! It is so important to make sure you are choosing the right artist to let loose your brows. Jasmine really takes the time to make sure she gets them just right for you, along with her advice you should be able to create those brows you have always dreamed of!
I hope this has helped you if you were unsure whether semi permanent makeup is for you. It can be daunting the first time you have it but it is one of the best decisions i’ve ever made! Jasmine offers consultations which gives you a chance to discuss with her your thoughts and ask any questions you may have before fully committing to the treatment.
