Beyond eyebrows: You can now get foundation 'tattooed' on your face

Microblading, microshading, microfeathering and brow embroidery. While these brow-enhancing procedures employ different techniques, they are all applied via tattooing – superficial cuts are made on the skin and pigment is then implanted under it.

Most salons offer multiple types of brow embroidery and the variety of names on the market now can be bewildering. Whether you’re after gradient, soft, nano, 3D, 6D or Korean brow embroidery, it’s important to do your research before choosing your salon or brow stylist.

These days, there are plenty of options that produce a lighter, more natural effect (with little to no post-procedure scabbing) that is nothing like the super-strong look that first-generation brow embroidery tended to create. Try nano, gradient or soft brow embroidery if you’re after subtler results.

Downtime: Seven to 10 days.

Lasting power: At least a year.

how do I prevent my eyes from burning while having and MRI after permanent eye makeup?

About two months ago I had an MRI of my lower back. As soon as the Tech slid me under (open MRI) I had an intense burning sensation. It felt like someone threw a chemical into my eyes. I had
my permanent eyeliner redone about a month before the


Your tattoo burned because of the metal in the ink. Your best bet would be to wait for the ink to settle in before you go back in the scanner.


once your skin tissue fully bonds to the makeup, it shuldnt do that again. just wait.


There are metallic pigments so i don't know, sorry

Has anyone had permanent eye makeup done?

I was thinking about getting my eyebrows done but I'm a little scared. Are there some good and bad stories anyone can share?


A girl at my school got her eyebrows done. They were way too dark for her face and I thought it didn't look right. I'm sure it all depends on who you go to. Also, my grandma got permanent eye liner done. Hers turned out really nice. Good luck!


My mom's got both her eyebrows and her eyelids done (tattoo eyeliner). It looks perfectly fine to me, though I'm not sure about the process of it. Though after about 10 years the color starts to turn just a very slight green color.


It may look good initially but most permanent makeup begins to turn grey or unusual. A lot of people regret it and theres no going back. Just fill in the eyebrows w/ a pencil, gel, or powder. Better be safe then sorry.
