[REVIEW] My 6HD Eyebrow Embroidery Treatment by Paramedic Aesthetics

 

If eyes are the windows to our souls, then eyebrows are the frames!

Not sure if you know, but eyebrows are deemed as the most important facial feature on our face. A pair of well-groomed and shaped eyebrows not only accentuate our eyes but also have the power to transform a face.

I didn’t know that until when I started plucking and drawing my eyebrows at the age of 17. My granny scolded me when saw my disastrous and pathetic (over-plucked) brows. LOL! She was my eyebrow master, someone who taught me how and what a pair of good eyebrows should look like (and needless to say, she had a pair of beautifully-shaped brows).

I guess it was from then that I started to get really particular about my eyebrows. And because I do not have naturally thick and beautiful eyebrows to begin with, I would spend 1/3 of my makeup time just to make sure my brows are well drawn in perfect symmetry.

Fast forward many years and one day I realised there’s this thing called “eyebrow embroidery” which was gaining popularity at that time and I decided to give it a try. Unlike tattoo, eyebrow embroidery is semi-permanent and tends to fade over time. After I went for my first, which I wasn’t too satisfied and it eventually faded off, I went for a second embroidery session a few years later. Again, I was sorely disappointed at the result as I felt it was done in a slipshod manner and throughout the embroidery session, I was wincing in pain. There was no numbing cream whatsoever, all I had was some antiseptic/anti-inflammation cream applied over my brows prior to the embroidery session.

Presently, I’m back to square one where I had to go through the tedious motion of drawing my brows every time I needed to step out of the house.

Just when I was feeling sick and tired of drawing my eyebrows, I was invited for a “6HD eyebrow embroidery” treatment at Paramedic Aesthetics. Naturally I was a little hesitant after the disappointing experience I suffered from both the abovementioned eyebrow embroidery sessions.

So I googled for more information on Paramedic Aesthetics and here’s what I gathered online:

Last month, I was invited to an intimate tea session with a few other bloggers by the good people from Benefit Cosmetics Singapore.

We were introduced to their National Brow Artist, Jerlyn Low, and we spent the afternoon talking about brow grooming and how to have that ideal looking pair of eyebrows .

So last week, I finally managed to find time to pay Jerlyn a visit at the Brow Bar (she’s stationed at Sephora Ngee Ann City btw) to try out their so ever popular brow tint and brow wax.
