Are you feeling on fleek? Do you know what that means? It roughly translates to a trendy saying that means, ‘Your eyebrows look good.’ Especially good looking eyebrows would be thicker than usual. The 2015 year brought thick eyebrows and natural looking girls to the forefront of fashion and beauty. The trend started within the fashion world (which trends don’t these days?) with thicker eyebrows growing into a coveted favorite by all. Currently, there are even eyebrow implants for those of the fairer or less hairy who still want to be part of this trend.
If eyes are the windows to the soul then the eyebrows would be the frames. How do you like your frames to look? Have full eyebrows taken their trend course? Doesn’t look like it. Full brows are certainly still a fan favorite. The most natural vision “is not too blocky or too fake,” says makeup artist Pat McGrath. “It’s about giving a little depth to the brows you already have.” Allure magazine states that “The basic rule is that your arch should line up with the outer edge of your pupil. How high, how long, and how thick you go depends on your face shape.”
One of the most difficult aspects of eyebrows is that most of us don’t have enough of them! Each little hair if over-plucked will look like a little scar that left its mark among your brows. Even trimming and plucking brows yourself can be cheaper but create an uneven look. A good rule of thumb is to pay once for your eyebrow wax or trim and watch where they are going with their tweezers, take a picture after and then follow up yourself. Professionals really do know best. Eyebrows can make or break a face.
So what to do if there is just not enough hair? A simple temporary solution is to use an eyebrow pencil. They come in all different shapes and colors but usually go a shade darker than your natural color as to enhance your face by darkening your own frames! The pencils come in either a genuine pencil form or more like a soft crayon. They can be bought almost anywhere.
Another temporary but not so simple solution: eyebrow dye. This can sometimes work for those unwilling to apply makeup daily this may be the easiest solution. But for those who have a softer hue of hair or fairer skin, this eyebrow dye that is usually used, may fade rather quickly.
A longer-term solution is permanent eyebrows to augment your natural ones. New techniques also mean that now it is possible to create eyebrows with a three-dimensional appearance. It also may be a better solution in the long run than spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on eyebrow pencils and creams over the course of years. This is one of the most popular permanent makeup applications the Permanent Makeup Clinic provides, and for good reason. It’s proven to be highly successful.

Permanent makeup is a big choice. It’s something that is worth your time and effort to make sure your decisions are safe and effective. Take a look at some advice that is shared by common professionals in the industry.
If it’s cheap or expensive, always do your research
No matter if it’s a butterfly tattoo on the small of your back or a new eyeliner permanent makeup tattoo, it’s part of your personal safety to make sure you do your research. Hopefully each place you look into helps give you personal testimonials and lets you talk to a past customer. Try to see if you can see photos and then follow up photos
Try not to go for an electric purple or current trends when going for a permanent makeup tattoo. Think about going for something that will look good in 30+ years. Remember, this is a tattoo on your face! Ask for tips and make sure to try out different makeup before you make any large decisions. It’s always hard to make a decision but think about going for a classic look that maybe isn’t as daring as you might want. You can always go back!
Make sure to take before and after pictures of yourself when you decide to go for permanent makeup. Test some different images and ask for pictures of others. This needs to be stressed at any permanent makeup clinic so you can track your own changes and see how others looked a couple of months, years and decades afterwards.
Permanent makeup can lead to bumps
Depending on the type of dye and the ink that is used during the tattooing process it is possible that allergies may arise. It would be best practice to have a test and make sure that there are no apparent skin allergies present. The skin is also super sensitive and can have different reactions in alternative places. So your eyebrows may react differently than the dolphin tattoo around your ankle. Just check in and make sure your skin reacts appropriately.
If you don’t feel comfortable, leave.
If any clinic or technician is making you feel uncomfortable or pushing you into any quick decisions, feel free to leave. No parlor should make you feel uncomfortable and like you have to make a quick choice on anything. Again, this is your face and tattoo on your face! Take the time you need to make the correct choices and feel comfortable with the staff. They are there to help you and help you find what you need.
Age affects healing time
The younger you are the quicker your skin heals.
Most importantly, choose the right permanent makeup clinic. Trinkette Parker, our experienced permanent makeup technician has years of experience and meets all State of Florida requirements for Permanent Makeup Application. Learn more here or call us today at 850-912-8650.
Ever wonder how to get the windows to your soul look wider, bigger and more ‘come hither’ if you will? Take a look at some of these tips below or talk to us. We can help you as well!
1. Use White Eye Shadow
So you don’t actually have to use an entire lid of white shadow to do the job but you can make sure to use a different white eyeliner than your usual black. Try to use the white both over and underneath your lids to create space. Think about it, if you have some space between your lashes instead of coloring them black, it helps create an illusion of fullness within your lashes.
2. Condition your eyes
One of the most important cosmetic things to do is to take care of your lashes. You DO NOT have to actually condition your eyes, but you probably should be taking care of your eye lashes. Use a decent makeup remover, not just whatever is closest. Use nice eye cream. Get some rest and make sure to curl your lashes and use a decent mascara. Remember to LOOK at the ingredients when you buy products.
3. Shape Your Eyebrows
Be on fleek! Take care of your brows girly! Fill in, pencil in, tattoo your eyebrows and make them as thick as looks good and full. A full eyebrow can change your face. Honest! Make sure you are taking a look at all of those important steps.
6. Play with Different Colors
Color is super important when trying to make your face look different. Remember that just because a solid teal color looks great on your best friend, doesn’t mean it will do the same for you. Play with your colors, use different palettes and ASK the staff at makeup stores. They are there to help you figure out what works best for you! Sit through the upsell to get a different version of what might work for your eyes, you never know, one of the staff could help you find your must-have liner!
7. Use Your Lips
Forget your eyes for the moment. Go for a bold lip and forget any heavy eye makeup all together. Yeah, that simple. Get a great mascara or apply some false lashes and leave your lids bare. A solid lip will attract different attention than you think.
8. Do you
Being yourself and holding yourself to look happy and sexy is the best thing you can do. It does sound cliche but confidence is sexy as hell. If you want to look good, feel good. Grab some lash lengthener, apply the black mascara and a red lip and get your butt outta the house! You will feel better when you know that you have done everything to look your best and have a good laugh. Those eyes will sparkle the more you giggle!
Each winter and spring we start realizing how important our skin is when we see the drier air and changing seasons. Use some of these simple tips to start keeping your skin healthy and looking great year round.
Eating Well. UGH! What a drag to hear about how your diet affects your skin! Sometimes pepperoni pizza just tastes SO GOOD… but it’s not great for your potential dryness and eczema. You are what you eat. It is that simple. Themore green, fresh food, organic ingredients, the more your skin improves. It isn’t always that easy to eat one salad and see an effect on your face… but it is important. The cells that make up your body are directly affected by each nutrient and piece of ingested food. When you think about food on a cellular level, it is very important.
Use DECENT skincare products. Not every single $100 product is necessarily worth its weight in gold but there is value in using quality ingredients. When thinking about your skin, figure out what you need. Are you dry and you need to have all day moisture? Then make sure that the due diligence is done and you know what you are seeking. Just because you are needing to keep yourself within a budget, try to see what ingredients could be damaging to your skin and keep them OUT OF the products you buy.
Don’t let your hard work to keep your skin healthy be canceled out by your makeup. Let your makeup compliment your skin care. If you spent your days eating healthy and trying to drink enough water, using your research to get some great products and then you apply a $2 powder and $.50 eye shadow. Oh no! Have you done your research on what products are good or bad for your skin? Any lotions that claim to moisturize but have alcohol within them… not good. Check your moisturizers for any of these: SD alcohol, ethanol, denatured, isopropyl, methanol or ethyl alcohol. Be on ALERT if you see these alcohols within your skincare. These are a problem. Although for the moment, they may seem to be helpful for quick drying or primers, they can lead to potential regular skincare issues.
OIL SLICK. Before even using moisturizer or lotion have you tried pure oil either argan, coconut or rosehip directly onto your face? It helps seal in moisture and provides your skin with extra moisture and nutrients that your skin may need and is not available in your daily lotion. Ensure these oils also do not have alcohol involved in their ingredients. These oils are cheaper than you can imagine. Another great skincare oil to prime your face, nails and hair with is Argan oil. It’s become quite popular amongst the hair crowd with Moroccan Argan oil being added into many new shampoos and conditioners.
Sleep – Like it or not, this is one of the best things you can do to look good. Staying out all night and being up late wreaks havoc on your skin. Little makeup is needed under the eyes for those who get a good night’s rest. It is also important to have an evening skin routine as well to ensure the best wake up look you can get!
False lashes- I bet you didn’t think we’d suggest to use fake lashes! But guess what? Getting eyelash extensions or using fake lashes can potentially save you a lot of time and money that you’d waste on mascara. So save some time for yourself in the morning and get lashes for yourself.
COCONUT OIL. We can not stress this enough, coconut oil is magic. It works on your skin, cuticles, hair, face, in your mouth, for your food. Not only does it provide nutrients for your hair and skin, it also is a cheap alternative to other expensive products. BEST OF ALL- It’s natural. It’s nature’s miracle and gift to you, so go head to your organic market and grab a jar for yourself.
Shut eye- Now that we have you sleeping so soundly… we will ask that you change up what you sleep on. Get a satin pillowcase. Not that we are asking you to relive the ‘80s but satin is soft on your skin, doesn’t mess or tousle your hair and keeps your potentially dry skin smooth.
Hydrate – You know this has been told to you from day one on your skin care journey, drink water. Yes, it really is that important. As each nutrient you take in does get dissolved into each cell of your body, make sure that you are ingesting the right things to make your beautiful face shine. It’s hard to remember, but just keep a bottle of water with you at all times, it can be easier than you think.
Got kink? Curls got you in a frizz? Instead of going to bed with wet hair and waking up to an unholy mess on top of your head, wrap your hair. Make a small turban with a towel or best yet, a t-shirt. Wrap it around your head and get it ready for bed and let your hair dry naturally within your shirt.
Puffer nutter. So if you insist on staying out all night, then we have some tricks to help your puffy eyes in the morning. First wake up and take a shower, always a good start. Before showering make sure to keep your eye gel in the freezer or a couple of metal spoons as well for about 30 minutes. When you come out, gently elevate your head and rest the spoons or the eye gel on for about 10-15 minutes. After this you will see the swelling go down and your eyes ready for your makeup brigade.
Psychological studies have shown how self-confidence can improve as a person sees their body image improve. Do you feel better after you have perfectly applied your makeup for the day? For many of us, it makes us feel put together, ready to take on the day. Some may be dealing with skin color loss (pigmentation) that can also occur from accidents, burns, medical procedures and various skin diseases. However, medical treatments are successful in improving the appearance of many kinds of skin abnormalities and scars. That being said, some patients may need the skin color of the area to be re-applied so that it looks normal and natural.
What Is Scar and Skin Camouflage?
Scar and skin camouflage treatment has to do with tattooing the skin with various color tones to create a natural, balanced looks where there previously wasn’t. The purpose of this treatment is to disguise a skin area or scar that is missing the body’s natural color pigments. Other than scar camouflage, there are many terms that are used to refer to this treatment including corrective camouflage, skin camouflage, skin color tattooing, camouflage tattooing, and skin re-pigmentation. Keep this in mind when doing your research.
Like most medical or cosmetic procedures, the science behind the color pigments and the physiology is usually best understood by a specialist who is performing such procedures. Procedures such as these need training, skills, advanced knowledge, and experience with permanent cosmetics along with an artistic eye for skin color tones.
Is Scar Camouflage A Good Fit For You?
You may be a candidate for this procedure if you are going through one of the following:
You need to have a healed scar that is not pink and neither does it change color. A scar that is almost a year old needs to have stable color. If the scar is still red or still changing color, it means the tissue is still healing. Be patient. An experienced tattooist will never work prematurely on scar tissue because that incurs permanent damage.
The scar needs to be smooth. Camouflage tattoos never aim to correct the texture of the skin. If the scar you are considering having camouflaged is bumpy or raised then the process may not be as effective as you hope it to be.
The scar must not have any dark edges. Borders around a scar show Post Inflammatory Hyper Pigmentation from the surgery to the initial trauma. It is also possible that the camouflage tattooing increases the hyper pigmentation and make for a darker and wider border.
You can get a scar camouflage treatment if you do not have any of the following: spider veins, age spots, freckles, unstable vitiligo or hyper pigmentation.
Remember that camouflage tattooing does not restore the skin the way it was pre-damage. It does its best to make it look as close to the way the skin used to look like before it went through any injuries. The procedure makes the scar appear as if it is completely gone and makes it look as if the area is ‘perfect’ all over again.
