I Got My Eyebrows Microbladed and Here’s What Happened

I Got My Eyebrows Microbladed and Here’s What Happened

 

I’ve always had pretty scarce and bare nothing like brows. Plus, I remember wearing a pair of Ray-Ban sunnies one summer where the beginning of my brows always got caught in the sunglasses and would literately rip out. I’m not sure if that is that even normal? I’m sure that’s contributed to my arch’s disappearing act.

What’s more, I pencil in my brows every day and I do this even on a lazy Sunday morning. Cue the cruel cycle of wanting to be able to swim or workout with Cara Delevingne-like brows but slowly and surely losing the effort involved in creating these every day. 

I longed to wake up with Brooke Shields brows — so I instantaneously called up not just my local brow expert but one that’s highly suggested and recommended in any forum online, you type in ‘micro-bladed brows in the Surf Coast’ and wah-lah cosmetic tattoo specialist, Chrissy, shows up (aka the eyebrow queen from Peep Studio and I shortly booked myself in for an appointment.)

I’m not going to lie, I was kind of shitting myself about the whole semi-permanent part of this procedure but at the beginning of my appointment, Chrissy reassured me that’d she’d draw in my brows first to make sure I was into them. Plus, Chrissy’s looked amazing, so I knew I was in good hands.

 

 

These are my sparse eyebrows (below)

I had an initial appointment with Chrissy from Peep Studio (https://peepstudio.com.au/) and a follow up list of what to do ‘pre treatment’. The list of instructions were as follows:

Client pre- care to appointment: 
• No alcohol 24hrs prior to apt as this effects normal blood clotting.
• Limit caffeine intake as it causes you to bleed more and we need your pigment to stay within the skin.
• Minimum 4weeks prior to apt, you can not have Botox, injectables, chemical peels or any other skin treatment. If so, please check with your therapist.
• Avoid blood thinning medications 72hrs prior to apt. This includes Vit E, Asprin, Niacin, Ibuprofen & fish oil.
• Avoiding sun exposure 4 weeks prior as can impact on pigment absorption.
• Wash your hair the night before or morning of apt as you can not get your brows wet for 7 days.

To start, Chrissy began to outline my brows and create the shape that she would eventually work within when she began microblading my arches. It was like I had Da Vinicis Vitruvian Man of the golden ratio drawn on my face. The brows are drawn up with a waxed pencil as as she explains,  “this gives her a frame to work within”. Once the drawing is complete, she begins to blade.

 

Gloved up, with a disposable pigment ring on her finger that she dips the blade into to scoop up the pigment. Then she blades the pigment into the skin. Starting at the beginning of the brow, she begins her first lot of hair strokes and follows through to the arch and finishing at the tail of the brow. After the first pass, the brows are soaked with the pigment to get into the small incisions. She then begins the same on the other brow. She will then do a ‘second pass’ on the brows. This is filling in any gaps. Once finished, the brows are soaked again for 10-15min. The pigment is removed and the liquid bandaid is applied. I realise this all sounds super-painful, but I promise it’s not; if you’ve ever gotten your eyebrows threaded, microblading feels unusually similar.

The whole procedure took about two hours, she would show me a mirror to make sure I liked my results, and if I wanted another hair or two here and there, she made it happen for me. Straight after the MB treatment, Chrissy applied a liquid bandaid immediately after the treatment. Chrissy explains that its ‘an antibacterial sealer and prevents any bacteria from penetrating, & reduces crust & scab formation. It also allows the colour to adhere to the skin better. Chrissy explained that “in the next coming days, the brows will tighten and a slight scab will form over the wound” and that “the colour will still look dark. Little flakes start to form and this is caused by the natural cell renewal of the skin.” She continued to say that when the flakes, flake off, the brows will then look patchy & the result will be 40% lighter (see photos below I was very concerned during this stage). I was also told that during this stage, do not use any cosmetic products, soaps or oils to the area. Do not rub, scratch the treated area.

She then supplies me with take home aftercare which includes 2 sterile water wipes & aftercare balm. 2-3hrs after my appointment, I gentle remove the liquid bandaid with the water wipes provided. 1 for each brow. Then I leave them till day 3. Day 3 I start to apply the balm on my brows morning and night, for 7 days. Not too much, as it can inhibit the healing process that needs to take place. After the 7 days, a shiny layer of healed skin has covered the area, I can now wet my brows.

Details of MB
MB is the art of drawing fine like hair strokes into the skin to create a natural brow. It’s done by using a small hand-tool which consists of micro needles positioned next to each other to blade fine hair strokes into the skin. It’s a very precise and quite difficult procedure. The pigment needs to be placed into the basal germinal layer. To shallow, in the epidermis, the pigment will fall out. She listens for a scratching sound on the skin, and the blade should glide through like butter. It should not be painful and unbearable. It feels much like scratching on the skin.

My eyebrows au natural. 

Immediately after my first session. 

What the actual fuck has happened to my eyebrows?

oh dear lord… Chrissy did warn me they’d go dark at first!

A week after my eyebrows calmed down and started to flake away!

After my second session where Chrissy filled in the missed sections and I was that happy!

I am told I need to not wash my face for a week and apply an ointment on them morning and night for a week. She did warn me that the pigment gets SUPER dark the next day and to not freak out as it’ll fade and scab within the next week. I must say I woke up the next day and I was freaking out, they were dark. I knew she pre warned me but they were so dark. I fought every urge to send a panicked txt message to her. It felt like my boyfriend couldn’t even look at me or that I was the laughing stock of Coles. I felt like I was meant to come out looking like Cara or Brooke. What happened? After a few days, it was like the heavens opened. Everything faded and my brows looked maybe 5 shades later. I was so pleased. I then had to go back after a few weeks for another session to fill in any missed spots. I must say I LOVE them and I am ready for Bali and a 5 minute makeup routine!

The most important product you can use after a microblading treatment is sunscreen. As Chrissy from Peep Studio explains “the pigment will last anywhere between 12-24 months, depending on the clients skin type and lifestyle factors. The more care you take of your brows the longer the colour will last in your skin. This can be done by using a SPF on your brows, as the sun will fade the pigment if exposed for long periods”. Like with other tattoos, sunscreens helps extend the longevity of your brows and prevent against fading from the sun. As Chrissy stated in the intial consultation “Tattoo balm, such as ‘Hustle butter’, can be applied everyday (evening), to keep the brightness of the pigment. Treat your tattoo brows the same way you take care of the skin on your face, moisturise daily!”

 

All in all I am VERY happy with my brows and bring on Bali!

Microblading Eyebrows: Why you ought to get your eyebrows done with the Sydney’s brow queen Kristin Fisher

Meet Kristin Fisher the most sought after brow queen in Sydney. Precision brows are her signature and there is no doubt she practices what she preaches, having the most impeccably groomed brows we’ve seen. Have your brows never fully recovered from the ‘tad pole phase’ seen in the early 2000s, a thick circular bulb that tapered into a thin line? Well I raise my hand to that and unfortunately I am haunted by my teen years every morning when I strenuously fill in those gaps. Need a fix? Enter- Microblading. 

It’s the beauty trend that’s taken off in recent years, with celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Australia’s own Jesinta Franklin and Elle Ferguson swearing by it.

Unless you’ve been chilling under a rock lately, you’ve probably heard of microblading, the new-ish, semi-permanent version of eyebrow tattoos. They’re not your grandma’s stamped-on brows; instead, the delicate, super-fine hair strokes look natural and realistic in a way that the first-gen versions never did. 

But there’s no doubt microblading, a form of semi-permanent makeup, has raised a few eyebrows. 

Microblading, feathering, brow tattooing – whatever you want to call it, the last few years have seen a huge surge in the professional long-lasting, brow-filling treatment. 

And while women are flocking to their nearest brow salons and handing over their hard-earned cash to transform their brows from thin and sparse to power brows Cara Delevingne would be jealous of, it must be known that Kristin Fisher is our top go-to. 

Fresh new brows for this lucky gal 🔥 Roxy has some last minute openings this Monday coming, for regular brow shape and tint appointments. Jump online ASAP to book! #

Ooh baby baby! Our birthday gal @deborahsymondoneil and her baby blues, showing off those FAB brows by our Delly! 💙💫 #kristinfishereyebrows#naturalbrows #bookonline 
BROW ARTIST: Delphine 👩🏻‍🎨

 

From a humble, little studio in Paddington to a luxe salon with 8 private rooms in Double Bay, Kristin and her team of Brow Artists deliver a bespoke brow service distinctly setting them apart within Beauty industry.

Forever educating herself and steadily building her repertoire, semi-permanent brows became Kristin’s passion and speciality. She delights in the transformational results she has achieved for now thousands of thrilled clients.

Is it a tattoo?

It is essentially a tattoo because we are depositing ink into the skin, however it is completley unlike a traditional body tattoo. We most commmonly use a feather touch technique to create individual hair strokes on the skin. This is performed using a tiny micro blade. We prefer to refer to the treatment as “semi permanent brows”. The word tattoo tends to frighten some clients away from the procedure, and also implies that the results are permanent. A feather touch tattoo is soft and workable, and can be left to fade out naturually or can be refreshed to perfection annually.

What does an initial consultation offer?

A consultation is the first step and a very important part of the process. It gives us a chance to assess your skin type and exisiting brows. We can then start to map out the shape and colour we would recommend. We also take you through the specific pre and after care instructions and just generally work out if this is the best treatment for you. Some clients have come in convinced they need the feather touch treatment, only to show them that a shape and tint can give them the result they’re after!

Who is a good candidate? 

Most people are good candidates, provided they can follow the pre and aftercare correctly! Certain skin types are better suited than others, but we can usually customise the treatment to suit both drier and oilier skinned clients. We don’t perform the treatment on pregnant or breastfeeding clients, and recommend they wait at least 3 months after they’ve had their bub or ceased breastfeeding.  

Why get the procedure done? 

Some clients are simply adding adding fullness and definition to their existing brows, and some are creating a brow from scratch (due to over plucking or medical treatments). The treatment is a semi permanent solution for those of us that depend on brow pencil or powder (most of us!) to fill in our brows. Particularly amazing for when you are on holidays, swimming or exercising. Having a professional design the right shape and colour for you can balance out and compliment your features in a really beautiful way!

Does it hurt?

There is a level of discomfort involved, however your skin is numbed before the tretament begins. This really takes away most of the feeling and allows the treatment to be fairly comfortable.

 

What’s the down time like? 

After treatment your brows will go on a little bit of a journey! Over the first few days your brows will appear very dark in colour. Once you have your first shower the colour will have started to settle and the tiny flakes should’ve all come away.

You can’t wet your face for 7- 10 days after the treatment so as to keep the area clean and dry. You can’t exercise or excessively sweat for this day period either (so no saunas, swimming etc). After the 5-day mark you will feel comfortable in public, however some people are fine from day 1.

For those of us who want to stick to a tint and wax what products do you swear by? I love the Benefit Brow range! I think creamy pencils are great to achieve a soft and natural look, and gel is a must for keeping unruly hairs neat and in place.

Give us your top 3 tips to creating the perfect brow?

Brow shape is so unique to each individual!

  1. As a general guide, don’t remove any hairs from the body of your brow.
  2. Let an expert help you to achieve the ultimate shape and colour for you.
  3. Be subtle with brow products and keep as close to your natural shape as possible.

Expert Advice For Glowing Skin

Expert Advice For Glowing Skin

Derya Koch, Director of Victorian Dermal Clinic and owner of Dermal Hub ‘Halo’. 

Consider this your pre-wedding check list. Optional, of course – but everything is laid out so you can navigate this whole “pre-wedding beauty routine” situation with some confidence and more importantly know when to start.

Talking to The Bridal Journey, Victorian Dermal dermal clinician Derya Koch has handed over a plethora of skincare tips and tricks and considering she’s the woman the Melbourne Models and Celebrities look to and depend upon for perfect skin – we’re taking notes.

Victorian Dermal also have ‘Wedding Packages’ for The Bridal Journey Readers. These are customised packages to ensure your skin is looking its best on your wedding day. 

Derya is kicking goals also founding Dermal Hub which she created with her sister and launched the ‘Halo’ last year. Did you know 80% of facial ageing is caused by the sun? That’s why Derya designed the ‘halo’ face shield which is a visor available in a variety of coloured lenses which covers the majority of the face, providing a UV 400 protection shield against damage caused by harmful sun rays.

Does “preventative botox” actually work? We also spoke to Dr Master (who also works at Vic Dermal) about Dermal Fillers and Anti-wrinkle injections.

When is the best time pre wedding to start seeing a specialist to get that loved up bridal glow?

I would recommend brides to start a minimum of 8 weeks prior to the wedding day, this will enable a thorough skin consultation tailoring the most appropriate skin care regime and treatment program suitable for your skin type and skin condition.  Our specialist assessment will give you the best chance at achieving clear and radiant skin. There are several different treatments available to help give you a beautiful complexion – each tailored to meet your specific skin concerns.

We create our wedding packages by taking into consideration different skin concerns and how much time you have. The wedding packages focus on consistent treatments that work in conjunction with high-quality skincare.

Dr Master who works at the clinic also recommends that having a consult on cosmetic treatment (dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections) at least a good 6 months before to trial what works well and is appealing. 

What do you recommend as a home care routine?

Your skin journey starts with skincare, we use cosmeceutical grade skincare, which contains active ingredients at the right concentration and technology that aids in the delivery into the skin. Cosmeceutical skincare is corrective, promoting healthy skin function. Prior to using any cosmeceutical skincare, a skin assessment is necessary. Through skin analysis we can determine your skin needs and recommend the most suitable ingredients, a skincare prepping phase for approx. Two weeks in necessary to create a healthy skin environment and accelerate results.

Products that you swear by?

Any successful skincare routine should include the following ingredients as an introductory level;

  • Cleanser- Regular cleansing is essential to keeping your skin looking radiant and healthy. Removing of dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris. Throughout the day the skin on your face is continually covered with bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt, and old (dead) skin
  • Cleansing helps anti-aging products and treatments work properly.
  • Cleansing helps maintain proper pore size.
  • Cleansing encourages proper skin hydration and prevents the production of excess oils.

Hyaluronic acid which has the greatest ability to retain moisture out of just about anything: close to 1000 times its weight in water, to be specific. This improves barrier function, improves hydration leaving the skin plump and hydrated.

Vitamin B3, is one of the best forms of the B vitamins for your skin. Also known as Niacin, Vitamin B3 can help to improve the condition of the skin, helping to treat rosacea, acne, eczema, dermatitis, hyper pigmentation, sun-damaged, ageing and dry skin – so it’s a must-have vitamin for healthy, glowing skin!

Vitamin C- when topically applied, vitamin C provides a skin-rejuvenating effect by improving collagen synthesis in the skin that slows down with ageing, as well as limiting skin damage from free radicals.6,10 Collagen is a structural support protein that is essential for firm, youthful skin.

Moisturiser – Moisturising everyday can reduce the chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness. Both extremes are harmful for skin and cause common skin conditions like acne.

Physical Sunscreen-often called sunblock, is physical: It contains active mineral ingredients zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide (which are naturally broad spectrum, meaning they protect against both UVA and UVB rays). Physical Sunscreens contain active mineral ingredients which work by sitting on top of the skin to deflect and scatter damaging UV rays away from the skin. They are often referred to as physical blockers.

Pros of Physical Sunscreen:

  • Offers protection against both UVA and UVB rays and is naturally broad spectrum
  • Protects from the sun as soon as it’s applied, no wait needed
  • Lasts longer when in direct UV light (but not when doing physical activities that cause the skin to get wet or sweat)
  • Less likely to cause a stinging irritation on the skin, making it better for sensitive skin
  • Better for those with heat-activated skin conditions such as (Pigmentation- Melasma, Rosacea and redness) since it deflects the heat and energy given off by the sun away from the skin
  • Less likely to be pore-clogging, making it ideal for acne-prone skin
  • Longer shelf life

What are your top tips for getting wedding ready?

Do’s

Start a skin rich diet; Your diet is a constant reminder that what you put into your body will impact your skin’s appearance. Skin food includes a diet rich in vitamins and minerals, Omega 3 fatty acids such as those found in herring, salmon and mackerel are necessary for plump and supple skin. Leafy green vegetables such as kale, spinach and broccoli promote your iron intake, and sweet potatoes, tomatoes and walnuts also have essential benefits. Green tea also boasts detoxifying properties with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities, as well as being known as a metabolic booster.

Minimise your UV exposure that can lead to pigmentation, collagen breakdown, dry and dehydrated skin.

Start your skin treatment journey as soon as possible.

Start an active skincare regime, sure to have your skin analysed to ensure the appropriate ingredients are recommend for your skin type.

– be sure to have your skin analysed prior to trying any products. Do not use any new products or have any treatment a month prior to the wedding day – although there are some specific events treatments that are best to have a week prior to the wedding day to give that ultimate glow such as; ULTRAEVENTS  which we use to tighten, lift and smooth out the skin’s texture, creating a smooth base for makeup application best performed a week prior to.

Dr Master suggests when talking about injectables is to see exactly what you like. Enhance the lips, test the units of Botulinium toxin in areas that may need some love and use the same formula within about 2 months of your big day!

One of the biggest issues we experience once we get into our late 20s is aging around the eye. How do we prevent lines or perhaps even hollowness around that area for the big day?

Eyes are an important feature contributing to a fresh youthful look. The cause of hollow eyes is due to the skin in this area being thinner than elsewhere on the body and becomes looser under the eyes as we age. Hollowness is due to fat loss in the lower eyelids, this is due to hereditary factors, aging and volume loss.

Topical ingredients such as growth factors, kojic acid and vitamin c can improve collagen production leading to an increase in volume and lighten the darkness in this area.

Some of the options for dark hollow eyes include; laser resurfacing – Improving fine lines and increasing volume through new collagen formation. Q-Switch laser which stimulates collagen production and treats the pigmentation resulting in a reduction in the darkness. Ultraformer- (HIFU) Is particularly good for dropping eyelids, loss of elasticity and hollowness in the tear trough.

 

Let’s talk, décolletage and patchy skin from sun damage on the chest area. How does one get rid of this particularly for brides who are wearing something strapless or low cut?

Remembering on your wedding day, it’s not just about your face, there are many treatment options that can improve the skin on your chest, neck, décolletage and backs of your hands. The treatments are focused on removing pigmentation, facial veins and redness and rejuvenate the skin. The type of treatment/laser will depend on the diagnosis and individual skin type and condition.

 

Nothing makes people run the other way faster than seeing someone in real life who went overboard and looks like a statue of themselves: zero facial expression and overly puffy. What about cosmetic enhancements? What do you recommend for brides and the timeline to get these treatments done?

Dr Mobin clarifies that “My mantra is to enhance, refresh and look natural. Movement is not a bad thing! I usually treat patients with deep wrinkles initially with Botulinium toxin, gradually reducing the dose as we top it up on a regular basis. Once the deep wrinkles are under control, then lower doses can be used to achieve the same result.  I believe in cycling medication and less is often more. Any imbalances can be naturally enhanced without being noticed. My patients are often treated and no one noticed, they simply comment you look great or fresh.”

 

What is preventative botox?

Dr Mobin suggests that “Preventative Botulinium Toxin is the use of this “Neuromodulator” (which come in a number of brand names, such as above), is to slow the movement of the muscles that keep traumatising the skin and causing permanent trauma to the epidermis. These wrinkles cannot recover as well when contributed by ageing process –  loss of hydration in the epidermis (superficial), loss of collagen in the dermis (middle layer) and loss of fat (deep layer).  If prevention is used, the the skin has a chance to recover from that trauma and it also changes the habit of “frowning”, “raising” and “squinting”.

There are dream jobs and then there are dream jobs like Cassandra Lusi’s. 

Cassandra Lusi has been a full-time makeup artist for almost 3 years, and let me tell you, the girl can paint a face. She is a regular makeup artist to Steph Claire Smith, Laura Henshaw and not to mention Olivia Molly Rodgers, Eleanor Pendleton &  Rachel Finch. 

What started as a creative outlet, while working as a full-time accountant, soon turned into more than a hobby. Sure everyone needs an accountant, but we need makeup artists like Cass more. 

We asked Cass some of her advice when it comes to working with a makeup artist for the big day and how to go about doing your makeup yourself! 

‘Keeping it fresh is a trend I don’t see going anywhere

anytime soon.’

How do wedding makeup trials work?

A bridal trial should be used for the makeup artist to get to know the bride, the vibe and feel of the wedding, and what the ascetic of the whole day will be. And for the bride to get to know the makeup artist, their style and to discuss the expectations of the bridal makeup.  We get to test how foundations/ primers and moisturisers all sit and wear on the skin so on the day there are no surprises. It’s also a great time we can discuss any pre wedding skin treatments that might be good in the lead up to the big day. 

If a bride chooses to do her own makeup or needs tips for the wedding rehearsal dinner or recovery lunch what are your top tips for.. 

Skin prepping?

To achieve the best base it all starts with good skin, so skin preparation is so important. Never try anything new too close to any big events, and keep it simple. A good cleanse and hydrating serum the night before should tick all the boxes if you are new to a skincare regime. Also an eye masks before a makeup application for puffy tired eyes never goes astray. 

Foundation? What’s the best and how does she go about getting a flawless base?

For longevity and flawless complexion for a dewy base I can’t go past Nars sheer glow foundation. But my biggest tip is use a damp beauty blender! Right now I am obsessed with YSL All in One Glow Foundation– it’s oil free and light weight but coverage is light to medium buildable (personal makeup kit staple).

What are your must have tools/ products?

Number one – damp beauty blender always helps achieve the perfect base. (Not for matte foundations) also a primer that works for your skin – my go to is Charlotte Tilbury wonder glow.

How does she go about contouring? 

Less is more, and make sure you use a matte bronzer and use a small/ medium size bronzing brush to get a defined contour line. I like creams but for longevity and looking more fresh not as cakey I always opt for a powder. 

Glow- how does one get a glow without looking like you’ve walked into a strobe light?

Use a natural glow (try a light cream base highlighter – I love RMS living luminizer because it’s coconut oil based) on the high points of your cheek bones, and a tiny amount on your brow bone and Cupid bow. Set with a soft highlighter  (Tom Ford sculpting highlight is my go-to)

Which makeup mistake do you see perpetrated most often?

Going too hard on the brows and using strip lashes. Last thing you want is looking too dark around the eye area in photos. Less is more!!!

What else makes a winning bridal look?

Simple elegance and keeping the bride looking like herself. There is nothing more beautiful than a glowing bride looking the best version of her.

What’s the one product that you have repurchased the most over the years?

There is a list of about 5 but two I can’t seem to replace with another brand are Tom Ford fibre brow gel and Nars creamy concealer!
