Have You Ever Thought About Getting Your Brows Tattooed?
As a lady who is seriously lacking in the eyebrow department — getting brows that aim to resemble Cara Delevingne's, or the Kardashian's, is a full-time job — brow tattooing has always fascinated me. I've always been very wary of permanent beauty solutions, and usually err on the side of caution when it comes to doing something that's going to last a really long time. I usually pore over every tip and trick out there, but the other day I got two tattoos . . . on my face, and I love them!
Almost a year ago I went to see the brow guru Amy Jean from Amy Jean Eye Couture and got to experience first-hand her amazing Feather Touch Tattoo technique. In this artistic-style brow feathering tattoo, a row of needles is used to hand-draw in each brow hair, then a dye is applied on top and allowed to absorb into the small incisions. This is done three to five times until it looks perfect! This means if a mistake is made, you can just not apply the dye to this area — i.e. it's almost impossible get it wrong (phew). Even though I knew this, to say I was a little apprehensive would be an understatement, so these are all the things you need to know before you commit to getting this done for yourself. After nearly a year my brows are still looking defined, the brow strokes have faded a little, but they look really natural and I have to say I'm super happy with the results — I'll definitely be getting a touch-up in six to nine months.
