Your eyebrows play a key role in framing the visage so it’s a huge no-no to step out of the house without properly groomed brows. Admittedly, not all of us have mastered the skills required to achieve perfect brows using just a pencil and a bit of brow pomade or gel. But there’s a solution for every beauty crisis these days. For the eyebrows, you can always turn to semi-permanent makeup: brow embroidery. The popular beauty treatment, which is also known as microblading, finds its roots in ancient China. Some may say this art form began decades or even centuries ago and was only popularised in the Western world in the early 2010s.
Evidently, this beauty treatment has made its way around the world and is now appreciated as a long-lasting makeup step that shortens your daily beauty routine. As with every semi-permanent makeup treatment, there are several things to know before going under the ‘knife’, or in this case—a thin blade.
We ask Cassandra Lim, the founder and owner of local beauty salon Smitten Beauty studio, to share with us what to expect out of eyebrow embroidery.
Who are best suited for this service?
Anyone with normal to combination skin looking to enhance their natural brow shape can opt for brow embroidery if they are keen on trying the treatment, according to Lim.
It is, of course, advisable to consult your beauty technician prior to the treatment and explain in depth your skin needs in order to avoid any potential complications.
