TEMPTED? Here’s what you need to know…

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR LOOK -

You’ll have to keep the brow area free from mois­ture for the first five days after treat­ment and avoid wear­ing makeup un­til skin is healed (about 10 days). Mas­sag­ing in co­conut oil or Bobbi Brown Ex­tra Sooth­ing Balm (R995) keeps freshly bladed brows clean and mois­turised. As brows will look and feel sore im­me­di­ately after treat­ment, sched­ul­ing your ap­point­ment for a Fri­day means you can have a week­end of re­cov­ery. Do your re­search be­fore choos­ing a tech­ni­cian and get trusted rec­om­men­da­tions (there’s no of­fi­cial body). Ask to see ex­am­ples of their work. The semiper­ma­nent tat­too ink lasts for 12 to 18 months; us­ing a daily sun­screen and wear­ing sun­glasses in strong sun­shine will help pre­vent the colour from fad­ing. It is pos­si­ble to mi­crob­lade grey and blonde brows, but you may need fur­ther tint­ing to en­sure the colour blends seam­lessly. On grey and sil­ver brows, the tech­ni­cian should use cool tones of ash and taupe (de­pend­ing on your skin tone and hair colour) to cre­ate sub­tle def­i­ni­tion.
