Now I thought I would tell you more about the make-up tattoos, and I start with the tattoo I did first - the eyebrows!
The eyebrows are the tattoo that I feel was most worth doing. Having a pair of well-shaped eyebrows that suits your face shape - and also waking up with them every morning, it makes a big difference to the whole impression!
I tattooed my eyebrows because I have too sparse eyebrows to be able to pick the shape I want. And since I still put on so much make-up, I picked them narrow enough to be able to paint my "dream shape" without any straws sticking out. Which resulted in them not being so pretty unmade up.
And when I still tattooed, I took the opportunity to raise the highest point a little too, because I think it's so nice!
My eyebrows, before and immediately after.
1. What you start with when you get to the tattoo artist, is that together draw a shape and determine the color. The makeup artist draws a flattering shape that fits the face. Usually you make two slightly different eyebrows, so that the customer can choose the most beautiful.
2. After that picks remove all straws that are out of shape. A common misconception is that you have to shave your real eyebrows before, which is not true!
Then add one anesthetic cream which works for 15 minutes.
4. Then tattoo the shape once without color. This is done to be able to wash away what you have drawn up, but still keep the shape to tattoo after.
5. Now it's time to tattoo "for real". The technology that most people use today is a so-called hair strand technique, which means that you tattoo small lines to get a more natural result. Annika on Creative Make Up, with whom I got a tattoo, has developed my own hair straightening technique that looks even more natural!
6. You always tattoo in several rounds during a treatment, and replenishes with anesthesia. Partly to get as even a result as possible, but also to keep the area stunned at all times. If you constantly switch between the eyebrows, the anesthetic has time to act on one eyebrow while tattooing the other.
7. The tattoo looks great dark out when done, and is often red and slightly swollen. The swelling usually lasts only a few hours, but the dark color can last for a few days.
8. When the tattoo heals so flakes the. I got a greasy cream that helped a lot, so that they flaked did not actually bother me at all.
9. After the tattoo has healed, you come to one revisit, when looking at whether the color feels right, and if there is something that needs to be corrected or filled in.
Here are more examples of eyebrows, tattooed at the same salon as me:
Did it hurt?
No, in the places where it felt a little more, it still did no worse than plucking the eyebrows.
What color do you choose?
You usually start from the hair color, but a tip is to bring a brow pencil / shadow that you usually fill in with. So you can start from it. You must also keep in mind that the tattoo should look good even without make-up, so you often choose a shade that is a little lighter than the one you are painting.
Should you pick your eyebrows before?
No, it is always best to start from where your own hairs are when choosing an eyebrow shape. So save as much straw as possible in advance.
