FRAME YOUR EYES REVIEW

When I was contacted by Renee Christopher owner of Frame Your Eyes to do a review for Semi-Permanent Make-up, I had visions of harsh blocked in eyebrows and over the top eyeliner, but when Rene’e assured me it can actually look really natural and undetectable to the eye I was intrigued, so I went on her website to find out more.

Obviously because of my brow obsession I opted for the Semi-Permanent Eye Recreation: Semi-Permanent Make-up (technically known as Micropigmentation) is a cutting edge beauty treatment which achieves flawless lasting colour and definition for eyebrows, lashes, lips or the eye line that will last between 1 and 3 years.

When I met Rene’e I felt instantly at ease, she was welcoming and highly professional and her hygiene standards were impeccable. She talked me through the procedure as she applied the numbing cream to my brow area and she showed me examples of her work and asked what style I would like to go for. I wanted it to look as natural as possible so I chose the brush stroke look.

As the procedure involves tiny particles of natural and synthetic iron oxide colour pigments which are implanted 1mm below the skins surface using a sterilised needle (similar to tattooing) I was expecting it to hurt, but I felt nothing, so its unbelievably painless. The whole procedure took just over an hour and I booked my touch up appointment for 4 weeks later. On the second day after the procedure my eyebrows started to flake slightly (totally unnoticeable) which was perfectly normal, during this time the pigmented area looked a little darker than I wanted but after my skin heals the colour will lighten up by up to 30%.

After my second top up the procedure will be complete, so this is a chance to adjust any areas of the brow you may want more filled in or extended. When I saw my finished eyebrows I was really pleased- they looked so natural and perfected in shape.

Overall I absolutely loved this treatment; my features feel enhanced and it helps to keep my brows looking there best 24-7. Its totally waterproof and means less time getting ready in the morning. I will definitely be going back for my top up when it starts to fade!

Experience rating 10/10 (yes that’s my first 10/10 score)
