Effects of Eyebrow Embroidery on Different Skin Types

Eyebrow embroidery is all the rage these days, especially with ladies struggling to get that perfect brow. It’s an excellent way to achieve flawless, well-defined eyebrows effortlessly without having to spend your mornings drawing them on. But as with any beauty procedure, the result of your brow embroidery depends on various factors like your skin type and your body’s healing process. Here, we’ll look into how different types of skin react to the procedure and what you can do to ensure success.

Why Does Skin Type Matter?

Skin types are all unique, with their own level of oiliness, pigmentation, texture, and pore size. And these factors can play a big role in how your skin handles the pigments used in brow embroidery. For example, how each stroke turns out and how long they last. Understanding your skin type and how it affects your eyebrow embroidery result will help you pick the perfect solution for your fabulous self.

1. Oily Skin

Individuals with oily skin may find eyebrow embroidery a little challenging. Oily skin tends to produce excess sebum that can break down pigments more rapidly than dry or normal skins. This means you might need to schedule more touch-up sessions after your initial procedure to keep those brows looking their best. 

If your skin leans towards the oily side, we’ll recommend opting for misty eyebrow embroidery, or ombre brows, as well as realistic hair stroke brows as they can generally hold up much better and longer on oily skin as compared to microblading. 

Misty or ombre, and realistic hair stroke brows are achieved through close-wound techniques, making them gentler on the skin, while microblading is an open wound technique not suitable for oily and sensitive skin.

2. Dry Skin

Dry skin is one of the most ideal canvases for eyebrow embroidery. With smaller pores and less sebum production, dry skin doesn’t produce excess amounts of oil that can dilute pigments. This translates to longer lasting results. On top of that, dry skin also tends to recover faster and with less risk of inflammation. 

But, dry skin, if not managed properly, can cause flaking and affect how your embroidered brows look. So, it’s a good idea to keep your skin well-hydrated to prevent it from drying out too much. 

Both microblading, ombre brows, and realistic hair stroke techniques work well on dry skin and can be used to achieve natural-looking brows. 

3. Sensitive Skin

People with sensitive skin often react more strongly after a procedure, showing signs like redness, swelling and discomfort that can be more severe compared to other skin types. The healing phase can also be accompanied by light pain. 

Also due to the delicate and reactive nature of sensitive skin, they don’t hold onto pigments very well. You may need more touch-ups to maintain your desired brow shade. 

If you are prone to sensitivity, we recommend going for shading or powder techniques like ombre brows and realistic hair stroke rather than microblading. They tend to be gentler and less likely to cause irritation. 

4. Combination Skin 

Eyebrow embroidery on combination skin can be a little tricky because you may have both oily and dry patches of skin across the eyebrow area. This means that you may face issues with achieving an even pigment retention. The oily spots may cause fading while dry parts may hold on to colour better. Proper aftercare and skincare will be necessary to ensure uniform healing. Both microblading and ombre techniques can work on combination skin, but your choice should depend on the level of oiliness or dryness of your skin.

5. Normal Skin

If you’ve got normal skin, you’re in pretty good shape. Normal skin types sport healthy levels of oil and are not too dry. The skin surface is also usually smooth, with pores of just the right size for pigments to hold well and spread evenly. Both ombre and microblading techniques will work just fine on your skin.

Your skin type is the determining factor for how your brow embroidery turns out. Even two persons sharing the same skin type can experience different results and healing processes. Knowing how your skin handles pigments and procedures can help you make smarter choices for the best results. Next time, instead of choosing the eyebrow embroidery technique based on price, it’s time to make decisions based on your skin type.

Have you been getting compliments about your eyelashes from your friends after your recent lash lift and tint procedure? Well, that is hardly surprising when your lashes look absolutely stunning! Naturally, you will want your full, curled lash look to last as long as possible. So how do you go about achieving this? Let us share the aftercare tips to follow to prolong the procedure’s effects.

Tip #1: Avoid getting your lashes wet for the first 24 hours

Avoid getting your lashes wet for the first 24 hours lash lift and tint

Moisturising your face is an essential part of your skincare routines. So you might feel a little alarmed to learn that you have to avoid moisture for 24 hours. Fortunately, your concerns are unfounded. You are free to wash your face after your lash lift and tint procedure; simply refrain from getting your lashes wet.

During the first 24 hours, your eyelashes are still susceptible to external elements, like water, as the solution used to shape your lashes requires time to set and harden. Any disturbance may weaken the solution’s bond, negating its effects. So avoid any and all moisture from touching your lashes – just for one day.

Tip #2: Refrain from rubbing your eyes

Refrain from rubbing your eyes lash lift and tint

Like moisture, any disturbance to your eyelashes can cause the lashes to lose their shape, which is not something you want. This includes rubbing or scrubbing your eyes within the first 24 hours of your lash lift and tint procedure. So stay your hands whenever you have the urge to do so due to eye irritation. If you have a habit of rubbing your eyes upon waking up the next day, put an eye guard on during sleep.

Tip #3: Avoid sunlight

The effects of the tint will diminish when your eyelashes start growing out and the dye begins to fade. This usually happens 2 to 3 weeks after your lash lift and tint procedure. However, constant exposure to intense sunlight or UV light can cause the dye to fade even faster. Therefore, we recommend wearing sunglasses whenever you are outdoors. 

Tip #4: Avoid waterproof mascara and oil-based makeup

 Avoid waterproof mascara and oil-based makeup lash lift and tint

A benefit to getting a lash lift and tint procedure is the minimal maintenance required for your new voluminous lashes. Your lashes look so full that you don’t even need mascara. With that said, if you must apply mascara, you should wait at least 24 hours following your treatment. 

Additionally, we recommend avoiding waterproof mascara. Why you may ask? This is because with eye makeup comes makeup remover. And waterproof mascara is known to be more challenging to remove. The more you touch your lashes to remove your makeup, the more damage you cause them. 

This is also true for other eye makeup products. Therefore, you should always be cognisant of the eye makeup you use. Lastly, avoid oil-based makeup products since they can cause the tint to fade faster than expected.

Tip #5: Use a spoolie to brush your lashes daily

Use a spoolie to brush your lashes daily lash lift and tint

We have been talking about a list of things to avoid, but here is something you should do daily after your lash lift and tint procedure. When you wake up in the morning, use a spoolie to brush your lashes upwards to help with their formation. This is best done when your lashes are wet, so you can do this after taking a shower or washing your face. Naturally, you should only attempt this 24 hours after your treatment.

Achieving natural, voluminous lashes is no longer a pipe dream with a lash lift and tint procedure. Plus, with proper care, you can ensure the ravishing results last as long as possible. 

At Lebellbrow Studio, our beauticians are well-trained in an extensive array of beauty and aesthetic services in Singapore, including eyebrow embroidery and lash lift and tint procedures. If you have any questions about our treatments or wish to schedule an appointment, do not hesitate to contact us today.

Are you looking to give your eyelashes a boost! Given that long, dark eyelashes have come to symbolise feminine beauty of the highest order, it is no surprise that many desire to achieve this look. But here comes the perennial question, “Should you get a lash lift and tint procedure or eyelash extensions in Singapore?”.

Both treatments provide you with the voluminous boost you desire, making it challenging for you to pick a clear winner. If you have been fussing over which procedure to opt for, fret not! We will be taking a closer look at both treatments so that you can understand which option is more suitable for you. 

What is a lash lift and tint procedure?

women having lash lift and tint treatment

A lash lift and tint treatment comprises two separate processes. Let us start with the lash lift process, which mimics the effect of an eyelash curler. The procedure is akin to a perm for your eyelashes, allowing them to appear perkier, which makes your eyes appear more bright and open.

The second portion of the treatment – the lash tint – involves a lash stylist administering a dye to your natural lashes, making your eyelashes appear darker, thicker, and fuller. Think of it as applying a semi-permanent mascara to your eyelashes.

Why should you opt for a lash lift and tint treatment?

So when is a lash lift and tint treatment preferable over eyelash extensions? Well, it depends on your needs. If you seek longevity and minimal maintenance for your new voluminous lashes, then a lash lift and tint procedure is ideal!

This treatment can last anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks, depending on how fast your natural eyelashes grow. Conversely, eyelash extensions generally last for about 3 to 4 weeks. You will need to schedule more regular follow-up appointments with your stylist for the upkeep of your extensions compared to a lash lift.

Another factor that may give lash lift and tint an edge over eyelash extensions is the sensitivity of your eyes. If you frequently notice redness in your eyes, you may want to opt for the former procedure. You will likely experience no irritation, as the treatment only applies to your natural eyelashes. You are not glueing stuff to your lashes, unlike eyelash extensions.

What are eyelash extensions?

lash lift and tint procedure

Unlike a lash lift and tint procedure, which only creates the illusion of longer, lusher lashes, eyelash extensions actually add length and volume to your lashes. The process involves attaching extensions to your natural lashes with special lash glue.

Why should you opt for eyelash extensions?

You can only work with what you have got, and a lash lift and tint treatment only works with natural lashes. So if you have short and/or sparse eyelashes, this procedure is not going to give you the results you desire. It is only ideal for those who love their natural lashes and want to give them a slight boost. 

For those who fit the former category, eyelash extensions are more suitable for you. Your natural lashes remain part of your new look, but they are complemented by your new extensions. You no longer have to wake up early and fuss about your eyelashes, as you will look perfect without so much as a dab of mascara.

Furthermore, these eyelash extensions come in various curl shapes, thicknesses, lengths, and colours. You have plenty of options to completely transform your lash look. So feel free to experiment and find the optimal look for you!

At the end of the day, the most important factor that will impact your decision is the final look you desire. If you prefer a more natural look, a lash lift and tint will suit you well. Conversely, if you are looking for something more striking, you can’t go wrong with eyelash extensions. 

Still unsure of which procedure is more suitable for you? No worries! Feel free to consult our lash experts on this matter. At Lebellbrow Studio, we offer both treatments for those looking to attain thicker, fuller eyelashes. We also provide an extensive array of beauty aesthetic services, including eyebrow embroidery. Do not hesitate to contact us today to learn more.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but that has not stopped many from trying to look their best and appeal to as broad an audience as possible. After all, when you get complimented for your looks, you feel more confident. This is why many people often deem physical appearances to have an impact on self-esteem.

However, there is no denying the often tedious process required to ensure you look and feel your best. Many can likely attest to waking up early every morning so that they can dedicate the time they need to achieve their ideal eyeliner look or ensure the lipstick is the perfect shade to enhance the colour and shape of their lips.

This may explain why eyebrow, eyeliner, and lips embroidery procedures are gaining traction in Singapore within the last few years, as many Singaporeans seek an alternative to makeup.

But for the uninitiated, what do these treatments entail? Even if you have heard of them, you may not truly know how these processes work and how it differs from tattooing. This inexperience may even deter you from giving these beauty trends a try. If what we have just described encapsulates how you feel to a tee, then fret not! This article will serve as a guide to anyone – especially first-timers – who are looking to give these procedures a try.


Part 2 – A Foolproof Guide To Eyebrow, Eyeliner, and Lips Embroidery

2.1. What is the difference between embroidery and tattooing?

One of the most common questions we have encountered is, “What is the difference between eyeliner embroidery and eyeliner tattoo?” Naturally, there are variations of this query that extends to both eyebrow and lips embroidery treatments. After all, we have seen many people refer to such processes as “cosmetic tattooing”, which may explain why many conflate these two terms.

Although both techniques work to insert pigment into the skin, there are slight differences between both processes. For a start, tattooing is a colouring technique that utilises permanent pigments, whereas embroidery only uses semi-permanent pigments which fade over time. This is why those who undergo eyebrow embroidery, or similar procedures, have to schedule follow-up appointments with their artists for touch-up sessions.

Tattooing techniques are also less popular than their embroidery counterparts as the process is generally more painful and the pigments used may sometimes fade into an unsightly green or blue hue. Furthermore, they are less natural and more limiting as it is not feasible for artists to draw on hyper-realistic hairs with these techniques.

2.2. Eyebrow embroidery

2.2.1 What is the procedure like?

Eyebrow embroidery procedure in Singapore

Eyebrow embroidery is a process where semi-permanent pigments are added to a person’s skin to fill in the sparse areas on their brows so that they can achieve a fuller brow look. This is achieved by placing extremely thin dots to create a soft-shaded brow pencil look or hair-like strokes to create a full brow look – and it can be done on existing brow hairs as well. 

In fact, there are various techniques – from 6D eyebrow embroidery to misty eyebrow embroidery – available to suit one’s preference. The process is also highly customisable, allowing you to shape your eyebrows to match your face shape. The semi-permanent pigments can also be tailored to suit your skin tone or hair colour.

2.2.2 How to choose the ideal eyebrow shape for your face

How to choose the ideal eyebrow

Oval face shape

Oval faces are often cited as one of the most desirable face shapes due to their balanced proportion, which makes them easier to style. If you possess an oval face shape, you should opt for soft angles and shallow arches. Avoid dramatic eyebrow shapes as they might shape your fabulous oval face into something else.

Round face shape

Those with round faces often prefer to create an illusion so that their face appear less circular. This is achieved either through contouring or styling one’s hair to add volume and make their face look smaller.

However, brow embroidery presents a more fuss-free option. If you want to make your round face look more oval, you should aim to lift your eyebrow arch and spice up the angle, which lengthens how your face looks.

Long face shape

Tired of the constant “Why the long face” jokes? Well, we don’t blame you. If you are looking to take matters into your own hands, we recommend opting for horizontal, straight eyebrows as they help to make a long face shape seem shorter. 

Another helpful tip is to extend the tails of your brows to create the width you need to enhance your already stunning features. Most importantly, those with a long face shape need to avoid any arches as they make the face appear longer, which is the opposite of what you are aiming for.

Square face shape

Those with square faces tend to have a prominent jawline. As such, you may require something to balance out that showstopping angle – and that something is your eyebrows. 

Go for a strong brow with a defined arch, but feel free to experiment with curved brows as well, which helps to soften one’s face shape. The main aim is to divert attention from your jawline to your attractive eyes. 

Heart face shape

Heart-shaped faces are scientifically proven to be the most visually attractive face shape. So embrace your facial feature by pairing it with the ideal eyebrow shape to enhance your natural beauty. 

For those with shorter heart-shaped faces, you should go with higher arches to exude a confident vibe to your existing look. Conversely, those with longer faces may want to opt for a lower arch as high-arched eyebrows tend to bring attention to one’s forehead – which you would want to avoid. 

Diamond face shape

Diamond-shaped faces are extremely rare. Those with this unique facial feature are commonly known for their prominent cheekbones that taper off towards their forehead and chin. So if you are looking to give yourself a softer and less angular look, we recommend rounding out your eyebrows.

2.3 Eyeliner embroidery

2.3.1 What is the procedure like?

Eyeliner embroidery-treatment-in-Singapore

Eyeliner embroidery is a semi-permanent treatment that places pigments along a person’s upper lash line – and some on the outer half of one’s lower lash line – to create the effect of having darker, thicker, and more naturally defined eyes.

This process can be carried out manually or via a machine. However, the latter is often the preferred option, as machine embroidery is more precise, faster, and less painful. Those who choose to undergo this treatment can generally expect the effects to last for around a year. Although it may last for even longer – 2 or 3 years – depending on how your skin takes the colour.

2.3.2 The ideal eyeliner style for your specific eye shape

eyeliner-style-specific-eye-shape

Almond-shaped eyes

We have great news for those with almond-shaped eyes! Those who possess this unique feature can try out any eyeliner style, and it will still flatter your eyes. If you want to play up the shape of your eyes, you can start with a thin line in the inner corners, then proceed to build the thickness out once you reach the outer third of your eye. You can either stop there or opt for a slight wing at the end.

Hooded and monolid eyes

For those with hooded and monolid eyes, we recommend getting the eyeliner right into the base of your lash line. Go with a thicker line – as it is difficult to notice thin lines when your eyes are open. If you are going for a cat eye, you should opt for thick, elongated wings to provide your eyes with the most shape and definition. 

Alternatively, you can enhance your eyes so it looks rounder by making the liner thicker in the centre of your eye while maintaining thinner lines at the corners. This style helps to create an illusion of curved eyes. However, avoid applying eyeliner to your bottom eyelids, as this can close off your eyes, making them appear smaller. 

Downturned eyes

The main aim of applying eyeliner to downturned eyes is to keep them lifted. To accomplish this goal, you can look to brighten the inner corners of your eyes with a light-coloured shimmery pencil and leave your lower lash line bare. 

The primary focus should be on your top lash line. Start directly below the highest point of the arch, and then proceed up and outward. A slightly upward flick of the liner at the outer corners can open up and do wonders for downturned eyes.

Round eyes

When it comes to applying eyeliner for round eyes, your main focus should be on elongating your eyes into a more exotic shape. This can be achieved by lining the upper lash line and playing up the outer corners by smudging dark liner into your upper and lower lash lines or going with a long, extended wing. 

Now that you have a better understanding of the various eyeliner styles that matches your eye shape, have fun experimenting with different liners to achieve your ideal eyeliner look. However, if you find the process to be a hassle, you can opt for eyeliner embroidery instead.

2.4 Lips embroidery

2.4.1 What is the process like?

Lips-embroidery-proces

Lips embroidery is a semi-permanent makeup process that involves the implantation of coloured micro-pigments into the upper dermal layers of a person’s lips so that their lips appear fuller and more youthful-looking.

Specialised pigments are used to improve the shade of one’s lips. These pigments are inserted into the surface of the lips through the use of a sterile needle, which makes slow, methodical punctures to build a layer of colours. 

It is crucial to note that lips embroidery is aimed at enhancing the colour of your lips; it does not work like filler or botox, and cannot increase the size of one’s lips. However, the process is customisable, so you can decide on your desired colour. Although it is generally recommended to choose a shade that matches the colour of your lips to achieve the most natural-looking result.

2.4.2 Choosing the best lip colour to match your skin tone

Shopping for the right lipstick shade can be tricky for even the most seasoned makeup professionals given the broad range of lipstick colours on the market. Naturally, this challenge extends to choosing the most suitable lip colour for your lips embroidery treatment.

However, it does not have to be a hassle to identify the ideal lip hue. The first and foremost thing to keep in mind is to identify your skin’s undertone, which falls into one of three categories – warm, cool, or neutral. Once you have successfully identified which category you belong to, you can more accurately choose a lip colour that best matches your skin tone. 

Cool undertones

If you have a blueish, pink, or red hue to your skin, you might be cool-toned. Further signs to look out for include whether the veins in your wrist look blue and if your skin tends to burn in the sun before getting a tan. 

Should you fulfil the following criteria, you should opt for a lip colour that contains either blue or purple-shaded undertones for your lips embroidery treatment. However, this should not be confused with actual blue or purple.

For example, if you prefer a red lip, you might want to veer towards colours that contain deep bluish-reds like cherry red. For nude lips, you may want to enhance the natural flush of your lips with either a rosy, pink nude or go with a taupe beige for a more subtle look. 

Warm undertones

You can tell your skin’s undertone is warm if you tend to tan easily or if the veins in your wrist appear green rather than blue. Those with a golden, yellow, or olive hue to their skins are also typically warm-toned. 

Naturally, those with warm undertones are recommended to go for lip colours in warm shades. For those going with a nude look, it is advisable to correspond your skin tone with the right lip hue. For example, if your skin tone is light, go for a paler nude. Conversely, if your skin is darker, go for a richer nude. 

Neutral undertones

Those with neutral undertones have a mix of yellow and pink hues in the base of their skins. Thankfully, this skin tone complements a wide spectrum of colours. We recommend opting for pink hues for those with fair skin, mauve shades for those with medium-coloured skin, and berry colours for those with a darker skin tone.


Part 3 – Before And After Getting Eyebrow, Eyeliner, Or Lips Embroidery

3.1 Benefits of getting eyebrow, eyeliner, or lips embroidery done

Benefits of getting eyebrow eyeliner or lips embroidery

A combination of our hectic and fast-paced lifestyle with a desire to constantly look our best has contributed significantly to the rise of these beauty trends in Singapore. These factors, along with the various perks associated with such procedures, have convinced many Singaporeans to give these treatments a try. Let us share the various benefits that you stand to gain.

1. Save you time and money

Between work and family, it certainly feels like we are juggling a lot on our plate. But this has not stopped us from desiring to look our best constantly. However, as many Singaporeans can attest, the makeup routine can often be a time-consuming process.

However, you will notice you can save significant time when you opt to undergo any of the following embroidery treatments. While the effects are not permanent, they can generally last for a significant amount of time, saving you the hassle of having to apply makeup every time you leave the house. 

While the treatment costs are generally not cheap, they are certainly not luxurious services that cater only to the rich. For example, the prices of eyebrow embroidery packages typically range from around $400 to $800, which is still affordable for many Singaporeans.

Furthermore, in the long run, you may find that it is more cost-effective to opt for such treatments rather than spending a small sum of money on cosmetics yearly and still have to dedicate a portion of your time to apply them daily. 

2. A natural appearance

Many people who use an eyebrow pencil or apply other forms of eyebrow makeup often find themselves winding up with artificial-looking brows that appear to be painted on. If you desire to have lovely, shapely brows that appear naturally, you should definitely consider eyebrow embroidery.  

3. Ideal for those who lack brow hair

Those with extremely sparse and thin brows are often conscious of their facial feature and may lack confidence in their appearances. The lack of brow density may prompt them to apply heavier makeup, leading to incredibly false-looking brows. 

Fortunately, those with thin brows can now achieve a more natural look and much thicker brows by undergoing an eyebrow embroidery procedure, which can significantly enhance the shape and appearance of one’s face.

4. Your eyes appear more awake

Bigger and more defined eyes are widely considered an attractive trait, which may explain why the cat eyeliner look is a popular beauty trend, as it enhances a person’s eyes so that they appear more pronounced and bigger than they really are. 

However, achieving this dream eyeliner look can be a challenging process. Thankfully, one of the benefits of opting for eyeliner embroidery is thicker eyelashes, which can provide you with bigger, more defined eyes that give off a more open and awake appearance. It also has a knock-on effect of making you look younger, which is an added bonus!

5. Achieve fuller-looking lips

Lips embroidery can enhance your lips’ colour and shape, providing you with fuller-looking lips without having to undergo filler injections. Moreover, it can help to rectify minor issues, such as lip unevenness, sun damage, or excessively thin lips. 

3.2 What you should know before undergoing an eyebrow, eyeliner, or lips embroidery procedure

beautiful-lady-embroidery-process

Now that you have a better understanding of each procedure and the various benefits they provide, you might be convinced to give them a try. However, before you do that, allow us to share the crucial things you should keep in mind. 

1. You don’t have to shave your eyebrows before your eyebrow embroidery procedure

A common misconception we have noticed is that quite a few people believe they have to shave their eyebrows before their eyebrow embroidery procedure. If you have such concerns, we can assure you that it is not necessary for you to remove your existing brow hair. Our professional artists aim to keep and include as much of your natural brow hair as possible, and we will only remove any hairs that fall outside of your desired shape when necessary. 

2. You can request more numbing cream

Some people are hesitant about undergoing such beauty treatments because they are concerned the procedure may be painful. We can reassure you that our professional artists aim to make the experience as comfortable as possible by applying a numbing cream to minimise the pain. 

However, we understand everyone has their pain tolerance threshold. So if you feel uncomfortable at any point in the procedure, do not hesitate to let your artist know so that they can proceed to apply more numbing cream to the affected areas. 

3. It is common for your eyebrows to look darker initially

After your treatment, you may notice your embroidered brows appear to be darker and bolder. However, there is no need to be alarmed as this is typically part of the healing process. The colour will fade around 40 to 60 percent after a few days, depending on the individual’s skin type. 

4. The effects usually last for 1 to 3 years and you will need to go for touch-ups

Unlike tattoos, these embroidery procedures are semi-permanent and their effects will fade over time. The effects generally last for about a year, but they can last longer depending on how your skin takes the colour. Once you notice the pigments are fading, you will have to schedule an appointment with your artist for touch-up sessions. 

5. Avoid blood thinners for 4 to 5 days before your procedure 

While these beauty procedures contain minimal risks, it is still advisable for you to avoid any blood thinners for at least 4 to 5 days before your treatment session. If you have any doubts about the medication you are taking, it is best to clarify them with a doctor beforehand to err on the side of caution.

3.3 The do’s and don’ts after undergoing an eyebrow, eyeliner, or lips embroidery procedure

Dos-and-Donts

If you have just completed your first eyebrow, eyeliner, or lips embroidery procedure, it is essential for you to follow the proper aftercare tips to ensure your skin heals correctly after the treatment.

Your artist can advise you accordingly on the aftercare measures to follow, but with a sizeable list of do’s and don’ts, we understand it can sometimes be a challenge for you to remember everything. As such, we have decided to compile these helpful aftercare tips here for your easy reference. 

Aftercare tips for eyebrow embroidery:

  • Do apply the healing cream diligently. Apply a light layer to your brows twice a day for at least 5 to 7 days.
  • Avoid getting the brow area wet – keep them as dry as possible for a minimum of a week. 
  • Avoid applying makeup or skincare products on your brow area for at least 2 weeks to prevent the wound from getting infected.
  • After the treatment, it is natural for your brow area to feel itchy as it heals. During this time, light scabbing will appear, but avoid picking or peeling these scabs. 
  • Avoid swimming or sun tanning for at least a week, and do not visit a sauna during this period as well.

 

Aftercare tips for eyeliner embroidery:

  • Your eyes might swell temporarily after the treatment, so it is advisable to wear a pair of sunglasses when going home after the procedure as your eyes are puffy and light-sensitive. 
  • Do apply a thin layer of soothing cream diligently to prevent infection of the wound.
  • If the swelling and pain persist after 36 hours, please visit a doctor for an examination.
  • Avoid the following activities, such as swimming, exercising, and going to the spa, steam room, or sauna, for a week to ensure your eyelids do not get wet from the water or your sweat.
  • Avoid eye makeup, such as eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, and contact lenses for at least a week. 
  • Avoid rubbing your eyes.

 

Aftercare tips for lips embroidery:

  • Do moisturise your lips with the aftercare gel provided to prevent your lips from cracking.
  • Do drink with a straw during the first 3 days as your lips are still tender after the procedure.
  • Do shower with your back to the showerhead to avoid water, shampoo, or conditioner from seeping into the pigmented areas.
  • If you notice your lips peeling, let it flake off on its own.
  • Do not put pressure on the lips. For example, avoid wiping your lips with a napkin after a meal or rubbing your skin when washing your face.
  • Avoid steamy and hot showers.
  • Avoid visiting the sauna.
  • Avoid UV sun rays by minimising your time spent under the sun.
  • Do not apply lipsticks or lip balms for 1 to 2 weeks to avoid irritation and cross-contamination.

The Korean’s famed beauty routines have long since left an indelible impression on our collective consciousness, and yet the beauty world’s obsession with all things K-beauty does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon. If you are an avid K-beauty fan, get ready to add another term to your ever-expanding lexicon – Korean glass skin.

What is Korean glass skin?

If you are not in the know, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about this latest K-beauty trend. In layman’s terms, glass skin is often used to describe exceptionally smooth, even-toned skin that possesses a radiant glow – akin to a perfectly polished piece of glass.

And this term is more than just another buzzword to refer to a specific type of enviable complexion. In fact, Korean glass skin is widely regarded as the embodiment of healthy and beautiful skin. So how does one go about achieving this look? Well, it requires total dedication to your skincare regimen.

This is not the kind of skin results you can achieve overnight, even if you are blessed with good genes. However, if you are committed to looking your absolute best, let us share a step-by-step guide to helping you achieve the highly coveted Korean glass skin look.

How to achieve glass skin

Step 1: Double cleanse

Double cleansing has always been a vital part of any skincare routine, and it is no different this time around. This process helps remove all the dirt, grease, and makeup residue from your face, allowing you to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

Start by cleaning your face with an oil-based cleanser, as it helps to break down the makeup residue and any oily dirt stuck to your face. Subsequently, follow it up by cleansing your face with a gentle foam wash or cream cleanser.

Step 2: Exfoliate

You can’t talk about achieving the highly coveted Korean glass skin without mentioning exfoliation. After all, the removal of excess dead skin cells and blackheads is key to obtaining clear and smooth-looking skin. However, it is advisable to not overdo it to avoid skin irritation, especially if you have sensitive skin – two to three times a week is ideal.

Step 3: Use a toner

Conventional toners are often ignored because many find them too drying on the skin. However, K-beauty toners are formulated with moisture-enhancing ingredients and play a pivotal role in any good Korean skincare routine.

Not only are you restoring your skin’s pH levels by applying a K-beauty toner, but you are also providing your skin with base hydration to allow for better absorption of other beauty products.

Step 4: Add an essence

It is highly advised to incorporate an essence – a thin, water-based product that adds moisture to your skin – into your daily skincare routine. Hydrating your skin helps strengthen its moisture barrier and gives it greater clarity and transparency.

Step 5: Treat your skin with a serum or ampoule

Another staple in your Korean glass skin routine is the incorporation of an ampoule or serum in your daily skincare regime. Ampoules typically contain a higher concentration of active ingredients, which help to nourish your skin, reverse signs of ageing, and even out your skin tone.

However, some ampoules are only meant for skin emergencies and might not be suited for daily use. In such instances, you can consider using a hydrating serum with moisture-boosting ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and ceramides, as an alternative solution.

Step 6: Use the right moisturiser

Moisturising your skin may seem like a no-brainer. However, when you are aiming for the coveted Korean glass skin look, you will require one that offers maximum moisture.

Keep a lookout for moisturisers that contain effective hydrators, nourishing botanical extracts, and antioxidants. Cica – renowned for its healing and anti-ageing properties – is another ingredient you want to pay special attention to when purchasing your moisturiser.

Step 7: Protect your skin from the sun

A small amount of exposure to the sun is beneficial to our body. However, too much exposure to the UV rays can harm your skin, causing it to develop more wrinkles and lines. But the warm and humid climate of Singapore can make it challenging for you to avoid the sun.

As such, you may want to consider carrying sunscreen with you whenever you plan to venture outdoors. Naturally, your ideal sunscreen should provide maximum UV protection, but you should also consider one that is hydrating and will not leave behind a residue.

Why not go for a Korean glass skin facial treatment? 

Many Singaporeans often lead a hectic lifestyle. Between juggling our work, social life, and family, it can be challenging for many of us to dedicate the time and energy to follow our skincare regime religiously.
