Allure Eyebrow Embroidery

Finally getting down to what everyone have been asking me - my eyebrows. I like to think i'm pretty good at shaping and drawing brows. I'm not born with perfect, full brows so i've have been shaping and drawing my brows myself ever since i started applying makeup? It's all about practice and knowing exactly what looks good on you. So last month, Allure Beauty, eyebrow embroidery specialists, sent me an email and invited me down for an eyebrow embroidery session. I hesitated, of course, since i really like drawing my own brows but the thought of having fuller brows everyday the moment i wake up is what made me decided to just go for it.


Allure Beauty's latest outlet at City Square Mall marks the 3rd outlet to date. It is bigger, better with a very luxurious and elegant feel. It has a spa like ambience in a saloon setting.


This is my brows when it's not drawn. I'm not 'hairless' there but it isn't defined and full enough for me!


So first, they applied the numbing cream around and on my brows and left it for 30 mins....

I was then taught about how brows should be aligned on our face. Allure uses The Golden Ratio to bring balance and proportion to the face which harmonizes the rest of the features together. I knew about this method of determining my brow arch and all and it was the same method i used to shape my brows too so i was really happy and relieved to know that i have doing it the right way all these while hahaha

My therapist then trim and draw my brows according to The Golden Ratio and to my satisfaction before proceeding to the treatment room for embroidery. I like how my brows always look but i also want a versatile shape that i can lightly draw over on days i feel like changing up the look so i requested for a similar brow shape to the one i always draw on myself, which thankfully, the therapist also felt that i suit that shape too.

In the treatment room getting ready for my brows to be embroidered! I love how the brows look like here. Gonna make them semi-permanent! Eyebrow embroidery lasts for about 2 years depending on individual.

Above 3 photos are taken with my naked brows (and face). Now i do not have to draw my brows on my off-work days anymore! I still do have to draw them during photoshoots because i require them to be slightly darker because of harsh lights and/or during times when i want my brows to be thicker or have a higher arch! Love how versatile it is!

Pain wise, i would say it's about 1/10? Definitely not like tattoo-ing. It just feels like somebody scratching your brows really hard. Oh and your brows are gonna be really dark and unnatural for about a week before it fades off into a lighter, natural shade! Honestly speaking, it was a tough week for me. I couldn't stand how fierce i looked but thank god time flies!

This is how my brows looked like before embroidery, when i still do draw my brows. Not much difference right? :D So for those who have been asking me about my brows... I can't help you when i don't know you. I can't shape or draw them for you. You can only either keep practicing like how i always tell you guys to (don't give up!) or you can give this a try!

And just a tip for those of you who are interested in doing eyebrow embroidery, i know a lot of people are into the korean brows (think thick and straight) right? Do NOT ever ask your therapist to create that shape for you. Neither do you get them to embroidery a really sultry looking, high arch brow because i promise you're gonna regret. Go for something that is more versatile, one that you will look good leaving it naked as it is and also be able to draw on it to make the arch higher or make it thicker and straighter any time you want. :)

I still like drawing my brows though even after getting it embroidered. Sometimes i think i'm obsessed with brows. I secretly takes pride in my own brows LOL. I also do have to tidy them up (pluck and trim) every now and then but it's way easier to do it now because the shape of the brow is already there!
