a2imakeup brow embroidery review: How the process was like
a2imakeup has a very cozy vibe to it despite it being very spacious. The warm lighting, comfortable sofa, and tea that’s chosen from a selection of beverages put me at ease very quickly.
My brow artist spent the most amount of time defining and drawing out the brow shape for me. She was extremely meticulous, using her professional eye and the help of technology to make sure the brows she has designed for me subscribe to the most flattering ratio to the rest of my features.
I liked that she was very consultative and patient; she went back and forth with me many times, adjusting the brow shape until I was 100% satisfied with how they looked.
While the numbing cream was left on my brows in preparation for the embroidery, my brow artist left to prepare the pigments that will best suit my skin tone. When she came back 30 minutes later, we were ready to start the embroidery process.
The process was relaxing and virtually painless, which I really appreciated. Before I knew it, the process was over and I now have a gorgeous set of brows!
We scheduled for a touch-up six weeks later and I was given some tips to care for my newly embroidered brows.
It is normal to experience some flaking and scabbing after embroidery. Here’s a tip: keep the area clean and resist the urge to pick at the flakes and scabs.
For me, it took just over a week for the flaking and scabbing to stop and the colour also faded to an intensity that was very natural-looking. I like the strokes that looked like real hair; in fact, I’ve had people commenting about how I have very nice brows, and not suspecting that they were embroidered!
Six weeks later, I returned for my touch-up and was told that my brows have healed beautifully. My brow artist filled in the areas that have lightened during the healing process and this session was a lot faster than the first appointment.
The same after-care rules apply but the healing process was a lot faster.
a2imakeup brow embroidery review: My verdict
I am not new to brow embroidery and my experience with a2imakeup is certainly among the best. The attention to detail during both the brow design and embroidery processes make me feel that I was in good hands and the results show too. I really love how my brows look now and the convenience that I get and the time I save, from not needing to fill in my brows during my makeup routine.
My new set of brows frame my features well and even make my face shape appear sharper than before.
The natural-looking hair-like strokes and well-designed shape are what will make me go back again in the future. After all, everybody wants embroidered brows that look like they were your real brows!
The relaxing ambience, professional and friendly brow artist, and great level of service made every appointment an enjoyable one. a2imakeup’s decision to put customers first by capping the number of appointments and making sure there’s no sales pitches certainly pay off; I was certainly a satisfied customer and I know that when my beautiful set of brows wear out in a year or so, a2imakeup will be at the top of my list to get a touch-up from.
a2imakeup is located at 42A Joo Chiat Pl, Singapore 427766.
