Let’s talk previous permanent makeup...first and foremost, I have had my brows tattooed for 16 years...they are overly saturated with ink! There is literally very little I can do with my current brows unless I want to laser remove them 😰 or go drastically thicker 😱 sooooo I stick with the old school style of tattooed brows (some say the “cholla” look 🤣) and I’m ok with that!
BUT not everyone is ok with that and they come in with brows previously done that are uneven, different colors (sometimes pink, blue, green 😧), saturated in ink, one is shorter, one is thicker, one is crooked, the list goes on!!!!! I actually love working on brows with previous permanent makeup...it’s a challenge...it’s a bitch, but I love the idea of creating something beautiful and better!
The reason for this post is when you’re going to see a permanent makeup artist, INSIST they measure you! INSIST they show you the color options! INSIST they show you a outline that you approve before they start!!! I have 2 examples with this post that shows these women mapped out where they would be even. Both of there previous work is so off that it made them very interesting to work on BUT we have created better brows!!! (Those pics included too!)I explain to these clients that they may not have 100% perfect brows when its all said and done (depending on the condition they are in), I will try my absolute hardest to get them to an even better place! Long story short, be a part of the process! My clients know everything going on, approve everything and don’t leave until they are happy!!!! It’s how it should be for everyone!
Thanks for reading!
