I’m BACK with this post!
Been a while since I last wrote and I’ve got complaints that people are bored coz I haven’t updated!
I was busy clearing backlog ever since I left for my honeymoon in Santorini & of course, that’s gonna be another entry~
Before the holiday, I got my brows done!
It’s been 2 years since my last eyebrow embroidery and thought I should get them renewed after drawing for the umpteen times and it’s indeed piling on to my total makeup time daily
Beauty Recipe is your neighbourhood one stop beauty salon with nails, eyelash and eyebrow solutions
Best of all, it’s right in my WEST neighbourhood — an 8 minute drive away from me!
With its awards and accolades, customers are reassured that their therapists are well trained and totally know what they’re doing!
My Original Brows
I’ve got this natural arch which I’ve been dying to conceal
– yea, I’m telling you that I’m pretty good at drawing my brows #browgamestrong
I dedicate about a good 5 minutes on sculpting these thicker brows before heading out everyday
Well, the arch-trend is not always prevalent especially when korean styled brows are totally in right now
The laziest way out is to get a semi-permanent embroidery for the moment
I like how Jade (my therapist) uses calipers for accurate measurement of each brow
Thereafter, a ruler to assist in straighter drawings
Go without make up on for the procedure
Otherwise you might exit the salon with beautiful make up but your forehead and eye make up will be non-existent or smudged
Total time required: 2.5 hours
Don’t rush the therapist into the job as it will stress her out and in turn, not good for your own brows
Despite the fact that numbing cream is set on 30 minutes prior to the procedure, you will still experience pain
It is bearable but it was more painful than I expected
Prepare your family, friends & loved ones that they might look at you and laugh really hard for the first 3 to 5 days after the embroidery
Please tell them to refrain damaging your self esteem for these few days and hold back the laughter
Mr R’s first expression totally gave it away that he find me absolutely hilarious and he advised me to put on full make up before he wakes up so that I won’t scare him awake

He also laughed so hard before leaving for work in the morning
Don’t worry, this humiliation lasted for only 3 days
I actually really like the shape of the brows!!!
The arch is GONE!
Before & After
& along the way, I told Jade what I prefer in terms of where the brow should end
She delivered my exact instructions and I love it!
Only YOU know how your full make up will turn out, so you need to know your brows well~
Apply on aloe vera gel which will help to heal
Optionally, you can purchase the aftercare cream from Beauty Recipe which helps with better color absorption and faster healing for $28
& it can be used again after touch up
One month after the procedure, I was called back for a touch up session
Time taken: 1 hour
Jade basically ensured that more colour gets captured and the brows will last longer!
