There’s no girl out there that has missed the hype over eyebrows lately. Nowadays it’s an art form getting them just right and I’m sure that for many girls it’s a jungle out there with all these different tools and methods. Do you use an eyebrow pencil? Shadow? Top off with a mascara to fix them? Some have even gone as far as to create eyebrow stencils and wigs, no I’m not joking, you can actually buy eyebrow wigs now! Wether the method you use, I wanted to take the time to write a post about the talent that is Malin from Perfect Beauty.
I left the fate of my eyebrows in the hands of a professional after years of struggling almost daily filling them in in with a pen or shadow for that fuller look and perfect arch. I felt naked without my brows on and if it was summer I was constantly worrying that if I sweat or wanted to go for a swim, it would run off or even worse, smudge all over my forehead. I realise now that thinking like this is beyond ridiculous, but if you’re a girl reading this, you know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s just not worth the time and effort!
For a while now I’ve been hearing about this “3D-brow” thing getting more and more popular and it always looked so natural as the end result.
The 3D-brow is a cosmetic tattoo where they use a tool to cut small incisions on the skin and add colour to. They do one “straw” at a time and the result looks so natural you won’t be able to tell from the real thing!
When I got to the salon, I had to fill out a form before getting down to business. We sat down and talked a little bit about what I wanted, but mostly I just gave Malin free hands to do what she thought would suit me best. She shaped my eyebrows and did them a little differently to how I usually did them, who knew the way I used to do them was completely wrong to the shape of my face?! This girls, is why you trust the professionals.
After agreeing on the shape I had to stay on their very warm and comfortable bed with a numbing cream for about 20 min before doing the procedure. When it was numb, she started working her magic. Now, in all honesty it didn’t hurt per say but it was unsettling knowing she was cutting into my skin and I could hear each little cut being done. But once you relax and just go with it, it wasn’t that big of a deal at all, I even think I managed to fall asleep for a second!
After the whole procedure you see the result, but keep in mind that it’ll always be darker in the beginning. As time goes on this will fade down a lot, which is why you have to go back for a check up 6 weeks after to see if you need to fill in more.
All in all, I’m beyond happy with my result and waking up each morning not having to do anything to my eyebrows is such a luxurious feeling to me. I can relax more and I feel so much better in myself now. Like you can see in the before picture my eyebrows are quite thin and I wanted them shaped and fuller looking. This tattoo lasts between 1-3 years depending on skin type, age and how you look after it, definitely worth it!
I definitely recommend you try this or any other treatment from the talented girls from Perfect Beauty. The salon is beautiful, warm and welcoming and it’s a nice place to go to get pampered and feel like a million bucks! It’s located in Årstadal only one station from Liljeholmen with the tvärbana.
