Eyebrow Embroidery at Browtisan
The night before I went down to Browtisan, I told Nick that I’m getting eyebrow embroidery, he was like, “No! Those ugly tattooed brow?”
“No, it is not like that. This is supposed to be more natural, done strand by strand.” I replied, sounded very sure.
The truth is, I was still very nervous. I’ve spent many months reading MANY articles and blog post about eyebrow embroidery and I still wasn’t 100% convinced. Is it really painless? Will it be natural looking? Damn it, if I hate the shape of the brow, it is PERMANENT!!!! I later found out it lasts only a few years, but still.
I had decided to take the plunge. I can’t go around with two half brows anymore. I’m seen the transformations on some of my fellow mommy bloggers, and they look good. I want nice brows too, and I want it from the best.
I deduced that the best place to get my eyebrow done is Browtisan. Yes, the service at Browtisan is sponsored but I received a couple of offers for the same service before. I turned them down because I wasn’t sure. I mean, eyebrows are very important features. I’m not about to let just anyone touch them just because it is free. If they stuff it up, I will end up looking angry or just plain weird, all the time.
See these beautiful eyebrows done at Browtisan, and tell me you are not tempted.
I’ve done my research. All Browtisan’s customers are happy. The owner, Coco has been in the industry for 21 years and she used to be a trainer in beauty school specialising in eyebrow embroidery. She was also a judge at the Annual Asia Art of Eyebrow Competition last year. I didn’t know there’s such competition either.
Ok, enough with my rambling and let me share some photos of the day that changed my life. I’m being dramatic. Let me try again. Here are some photos taken at Browtisan, the day I said goodbye to my eyebrow pencil forever. Or a least for the next few years.
Coco uses the latest Swiss microscopic amplification technology to ensure every single eyebrow stroke more refined, accurate, and detailed. All blades are brand new to ensure no cross infection.

Home aftercare and recovery
Using the gel and tape Coco provided, I carefully apply it over the eyebrows before washing my face. I went to bed with the brows still feeling a little raw, and a little stingy too. Nick was impressed that it looks so natural.
Above photo shows how the brow looks like the very next morning. It has darken and thicken as the area is a little swollen. I woke up feeling slightly better. It doesn’t hurt or stings anymore but I’m still aware that it is there. It’s like you have cut yourself, it no longer hurts but it didn’t completely go away either. I also found 3 lashes on my pillow. No washing face in the morning. Just a good, careful wipe.
I went out to a playdate fearing people might stare but my friend said she was more mesmerised by my long and luscious eyelashes to notice the eye brow. Haha!
By day 3, I was totally nailing the ‘water protection’ process. It took me less than a minute. I’m also getting used to the dark and bushy eyebrow look. Oh so very Cara Delevingne.
By day 5, the scabs started to peel and fall off. Parts of the eyebrows looked lighter than the rest. I would say this is the worst part of the whole healing process. Coco had told me NOT to peel the scabs as the colour might come off as a result. But I was impatient. I scrubbed some area to even the brow out. This probably caused holes (lightened areas) in some part of the brow. My bad. *cringe*
But by day 7, it has lightened considerably. The eyebrow started to look very natural now. In fact I had a hard time plucking my natural hairs because I can’t tell which is which!
|This photo was taken 4 weeks after. By the way, the eyelashes lasted about 3-4 weeks.|
