PERMANENT MAKE-UP / MICROBLADING
Everything you need to know about Microblading, Permanent Makeup or Micropigmentation
To start with... Any method of implanting pigment into your skin is by definition a tattoo. Yes! But the skin depth and pigments make the difference between permanent and permanent. Truth be told residual pigment will always linger in your skin even if you stop redoing your PMU yearly, but we call it 'permanent' because its intensity fades over time. If done correctly that is!
Permanent Makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing, also known as Micropigmentation. It has been around since at least the 20th century, possibly even longer. It is a cosmetic technique where pigment is inserted into the skin to resemble makeup. It is typically achieved using a digital machine or manual hand tool to create permanent enhancements to the Eyebrows, Eyes, Lips, and Scalp.
It can be used to create beautiful and sexy Ombre Brows (soft shading technique), enhance the shape of your Lips or make your eyes pop with Eyeliner. More about it here.
Microblading is a technique of cosmetic tattooing performed specifically on the eyebrows. Very similar to the first methods of tattooing, it is done by manually depositing pigment into the second layer of the skin (dermis). But what makes it truly unique is the hand tool used. The unique formation of micro-needles allows the artist to create the look of real eyebrow hairs by tattooing very fine hair-mimicking strokes in the skin.
Microblading is a great solution for people who have over-plucked their eyebrows, or who have naturally very thin/light eyebrows and want to accentuate the look of eyebrows on their face. More about it here.
How long does it last? Does Microblading last less than the method done with machine?
Any form of doing permanent cosmetic tattooing means working at the same depth (top layer of the dermis). Whether done with a digital machine or hand held tool, if implanted correctly the results should last the same. Many say 1-2 or even more years... in reality they will last anything between 10-18 month, depending on many factors. The younger the skin, the stronger metabolism and faster regeneration of the skin layers where pigment is implanted. And the more mature the skin, the longer it can last.
Not to worry, all our prices include one Touch-up treatment done generally 4-6 weeks later but not sooner than 4 weeks. In fact, because they are a superficial cosmetic tattoo, all Permanent Makeup procedures require a follow-up session to correct any patchiness and colour unevenness. And yearly Colour Boosts have a special price for our clients.
Do you have to shave off your eyebrows to get it done?
No! Microblading/PMU is done to enhance what you already have to make you look as natural as possible. It is not necessary, nor recommended for a client to remove any natural hair already there. We want to see how your natural eyebrows grow and follow their natural growth direction as much as possible. More about Pre & After info clicking on the links.

Because we are not perfect
Every face has a weak point. Whether it‘s uneven eyebrows, unequally sized eyes or lips with a distorted contour. This is where micropigmentation offers the most natural solution with absolutely stunning results.
Eyebrows build the main frame around the face. Shape irregularities, unevenness and patchiness can create an inharmonious look. With just a few correctly placed hair strokes, micropigmentation can create a natural, harmonious and symmetrical look, without drastically changing a person’s appearance.
A well-defined lips line can look beautiful and that Cupid's Bow can reshape them completely! Just adding pigments into the lip contour can take off years of a person’s face. And emphasizing your eyeline will enhance the expression of the eyes making them stand out and your lashes richer and darker.
Is micropigmentation the same as permanent tattooing?
Micropigmentation and permanent tattooing are based on the same technology but different at the same time. For the first technique we use hypoallergenic pigments implanted into the dermis (below the first layer of skin) by needle micro-insertion. The difference between permanent tattooing and Permanent Makeup is in duration, the pigments used and skin depth where they are implanted. PMU is long-lasting but inserted more superficial into the skin, the special pigments slowly fade away and you can change the shape and colour to best fit your needs over the years.
Permanent Makeup builds the foundation for a perfect finish without looking made-up. You can look your best all day, every day.
Hi, I'm Alexandra
My Dream, my Work, my Passion!
The thought of becoming a Microblading and Permanent Makeup (Micropigmentation) Artist came after I had my eyebrows done a few years back. After many failed attempts of tweezing done by unprofessional beauticians I ended up losing a lot of time every morning applying eyebrow makeup. I was so happy with the result and how it improved my facial expressivity that I decided to resign from my job as a Commercial Director and start a new venture to bring people the same delight and confidence I felt. Plus I always did have an eye for beauty ;)
I am now an established and respected practitioner in the field of Permanent Makeup and Microblading. I pride myself with being an Artist of PhiAcademy, the world renowned Microblading Academy.
