How to find the best place to get your eyebrows permanent make up in one simple Step!

Microblading is a skilled technique with which eyebrows are (re)shaped by a permanent makeup artist. When choosing the best artist for your brow it is imperative that you do not book an appointment with a technician, but with a trained professional artist. How do you select the best salon for your treatment? And how can you make sure that you will be happy with the result?

Choosing the best Microblading makeup artist for your brows

Your eyebrows play a key part in defining your face and your look. Too many people booking permanent make up for their eyebrows end up with a new set of eyebrows with a ‘drawn on’ look. Great looking eyebrows are defined by a natural look with a visible eyebrow hairstroke. This type of eyebrow can only be accomplished by a trained beautician with the fine hand of a make up artist. The main reason why an artist in this field will be able to provide you with great looking eyebrows is the fact that the treatment is performed with a very fine and sharp blade, resembling a pen.

Testing your eyebrow beautician


Always make sure to ask your beautician to supply you with a drawing of the design of your new eyebrows. Are they able to draw your new set of brows effectively? Can you actually see the definition of the eyebrows and have they taken the time to draw them marking every individual stroke of hair? If the answer to these questions is yes you can be sure to have found a great beautician who will take the time to shape your eyebrows in a natural fashion and with great detail.

Choosing quality over a bargain microblading treatment

Investigating different prices for eyebrow shaping treatments on offer is something that we all do when we are looking for a good salon to define our look. However, your eyebrows play a key part in defining your face and a cheap Microblading treatment can turn out to be a very costly mistake if you end up unhappy with the result. On top of this, the mistake of ending up with unnatural looking brows cannot be rectified or altered. Don’t choose your best beautician based on price or based on bargain offers. You will regret it. Choose an artist beautician who is able to draw portrait style natural-looking eyebrows on paper with natural looking individual hairs, taking the shape of your face and your preferences into account. Her designs are marked by a very natural looking eyebrow hairstroke.

7 voordelen van Microneedling


Collagen is arguably the most vital way to improve the look of skin, and this goes far beyond reducing wrinkles. By stimulating collagen growth with microneedling, you can also reverse sun damage and discoloration. A 2015 study showed microneedling to be a promising treatment for the blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation that comes with this chronic condition.  International Journal of Dermatology confirms that microneedling is a new way to achieve “skin rejuvenation, tightening, and scar remodeling. It offers a simple and effective treatment for aged skin with minimal side effects.

These are the 7 benefits of Microneedling:

1- Makes you look younger by reducing fine lines and wrinkles

This might be the single best and more important benefit of Microneedling; That it can actually help you LOOK younger and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

​How does Microneedling make you look younger?

It has been shown that the small pin holes created by the thousands of needles​ break into the upper levels of the dermis and cause the release of growth factors to “repair” and “heal” the skin. Basically your body is overreacting to the small trauma  and this healing process results in the release of growth factors that increase collagen and elastin levels.

​In addition to the stimulation of collagen the microtrauma also results in the formulation of tons of little blood vessels which supply blood, oxygen and nutrients straight into the dermis. The combination of these changes results in a reduction in wrinkles, healing of photo damage and tightening of existing skin – all of which makes you LOOK younger.

2- On top of Microneedling’s ability to smooth and correct damaged skin, it also has the added bonus of tightening loose skin, which makes it great for older men and women.

3-  it improves product absorption tremendously

Did you know that only 4 to 8 percent of that expensive serum you’re using on your face actually penetrates your skin? One of Microneedling additional appeals is that it improves product absorption tremendously. Studies confirm that the treatment can actually help topical medications penetrate skin more efficiently, allowing you to reap the full benefits of any product. This makes total sense considering the fact that Microneedling creates thousands of invisible holes in your skin that are ready to absorb products in a way clogged pores can’t.

4- Improves the quality and texture of your skin

The pinprick needles actually stimulate remodeling of existing collagen and promote formation of new collagen and revascularization (blood vessels) in the skin.

Collagen and elastin are the two components of your skin that give your skin the normal “plump” look every woman wants. And starting at around age 30 this collagen starts to degrade naturally, which is when women start to notice slight changes and sagging in their skin.

The good news is that this healing process starts almost IMMEDIATELY after the procedure.

5- Reduces pock marks and scarring

Another huge benefit is that microneedling helps reduce acne scars which are notoriously difficult to treat​. 

So how does microneedling help with scarring?

When you have any sort of scarring on your face (or anywhere on your body) your body naturally undergoes a process known as fibrosis. This is good when healing, because it makes everything stick together. but beneath the skin the glue is so strong that it can literally pull the skin down and create pock marks or scarring on the surface of the skin.

The microneedling procedure helps to “break up” all of the glue and fibrosis underneath the skin which allows the skin to “let go” of the tenting and release the surface of the skin. Naturally this results in a more smooth surface to your skin.

6- Reduces blackheads

This is another pretty cool side effect of Microneedling and is especially helpful for women who suffer from LOTS of black heads (especially those who have PCOS, or hormonal acne). 

 The controlled trauma and thousands of needle pokes actually liberate and knock out blackheads during the entire procedure. 

Immediately after you will notice a reduction in the total volume of blackheads on your face (especially in your nose, but be careful because the nose is sensitive!).

You will also notice that your pores are smaller in size for about 3-4 weeks after the procedure due to the healing effects and revascularization that occurs.

7- Exfoliates the skin 

​Pretty much any treatment that mechanically disrupts the epidermis will result in some exfoliation. 

Exfoliation refers to removing the upper surface of the epidermis, usually the stratum corneum (which is the upper most skin layer). This is important because your dead skin cells live on this layer and removing this layer of the epidermis makes your skin look fresh and smooth almost instantly.

How Beauty increase Happiness?

Personal beauty raises happiness

The most common explanation for the connection between happiness and beauty is based on economics. In one study, a Yale professor of economics found that being beautiful adds to one’s overall life happiness, and beautiful participants were ranked above the average. The reason for this, is that prettier people tend to make more money, and it is this financial leg up that affords beautiful people great happiness.

From an evolutionary standpoint, beauty can make us happy because attractiveness implies health, which in turn implies strong reproductive capabilities, which allows us to attract more successful mates.

Beauty often starts with something small! For instance a real smile makes us more beautiful. a small beauty treatment such as having a well shaped and neat eyebrows makes our face more beautiful.

  • Happiness doesn’t age.

Some may grow old and regret the years gone by. Happy people don’t seem to age as much because that youthful glow of possibility is still there. the same applies for beauty. Thanks to beauty specialists, you can postpone aging signs by using variety of beauty treatments.

  • When you’re happier, you’re healthier.

Studies show that people who are happy are more likely to be and stay healthy their entire lives. They have energy from all that happiness, so they’re more likely to be active, to eat things that are good for them, and to generally enjoy life because of it.

So they infer that good-looking results in high self-confidence and can earn more opportunities for job, income, or spouse.

studies measure the impact of individuals’ looks on their life satisfaction or happiness in U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Germany. The results show that:

1. Personal beauty raises happiness.

2. The majority of this positive effect comes about because personal beauty improves economic outcomes – incomes, marriage prospects, and others – that increase happiness. Thus much of the positive effect of beauty on happiness is indirect – through its effects on aspects of economic life that increase happiness.

People are often drawn to the attractive people around and the “pretty people” tend to have greater influence overall.

So, what can you do to turn it around?

 Finding things that will make you happy in life;

  • Play up your positives — you may not be the most beautiful, but you have your own specific beauty, the personality, musical abilities …
  • Find acceptance within yourself and who you are. This can help build happiness in the long term as well.
    • Pay attention to your personal beauty. Sometimes doing a small treatment like Eyelash extensions can tremendously change your eyes look, increase your self confident as well as the first impression of people you meet. 
  • Don’t you feel confident with shape of your eyebrows or do you have a scare on your face? Thanks to beauty specialists, there are variety of treatments that can help you to earn your beauty back; Such as Microneedling, Microblading, Phi-Ion

Although some of the cosmetic or clothing changes cannot make you feel better in the long term, addressing some of things that can make you happier are good things. These things will also boost your endorphins and your mood.

  • Happiness Surround yourself with happy people. They will rub off on you.
  • Be in the moment … Enjoy the now.

It seems as if women’s voices are joining together and being heard: We want to feel and look attractive, but there isn’t just one way to do that. We want to look like ourselves, not someone else.
