The Enduring Beauty of Permanent Makeup Brows: When Fading Isn’t a Worry

2023-09-29T09:59:30+01:00September 29th, 2023|Categories: Latest, Permanent Makeup|Tags: |

Permanent makeup, or microblading, has revolutionized the beauty industry, offering individuals a semi-permanent solution to perfectly shaped and defined eyebrows. While most clients expect a gradual fading over time, there are cases where permanent makeup brows remain as vibrant as ever, defying the need for a color booster. In this blog post, we’ll explore the intriguing world of long-lasting permanent makeup brows and why some individuals experience this remarkable longevity.

The Basics of Permanent Makeup Brows
Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation or microblading, involves the use of tiny, fine-point needles to deposit pigment into the skin’s top layer, creating natural-looking, enhanced eyebrows. The procedure is designed to fade gradually over time, typically requiring a colour booster or touch-up after a year or so to maintain their fresh appearance.

However, there are instances where permanent makeup brows seemingly defy the expected timeline, staying vibrant and beautiful long past the usual fading point. Here are some key factors that contribute to this phenomenon:

  1. Skin Type and Quality
    One of the most significant factors influencing the longevity of permanent makeup brows is the client’s skin type and quality. Individuals with oily skin may experience quicker fading due to the excess oil production. In contrast, those with drier skin may retain the pigment for a more extended period.
  2. Pigment Quality
    The quality of the pigment used during the initial procedure plays a crucial role. High-quality pigments are more likely to stay vibrant and resist fading. Experienced technicians often prioritize premium pigments to ensure the best results for their clients.
  3. Aftercare
    Proper aftercare is essential to ensure the longevity of permanent makeup brows. Following the technician’s post-procedure instructions, such as avoiding excessive sun exposure and keeping the treated area clean, can significantly impact how well the pigment holds up over time.
  4. Individual Differences
    Every person’s body reacts differently to permanent makeup. Factors such as genetics, lifestyle, and overall health can influence how long the pigment remains visible. Some individuals simply have a natural predisposition for long-lasting results.
  5. Technician Expertise
    The skill and expertise of the technician performing the procedure are vital. A well-trained and experienced technician can apply the pigment evenly and at the appropriate depth, increasing the chances of long-lasting results.

When Fading Isn’t a Worry
For those fortunate enough to enjoy permanent makeup brows that haven’t faded enough to warrant a colour booster, the benefits are evident. They can wake up each day with perfectly defined eyebrows, saving time and effort on daily makeup routines. However, it’s crucial to remember that even long-lasting permanent makeup brows may eventually require a touch-up to maintain their optimal appearance.

Permanent makeup brows have provided countless individuals with the convenience and confidence of perfectly shaped eyebrows. While fading is a natural part of the process, some lucky clients experience brows that retain their vibrancy far longer than expected. Whether it’s due to skin type, pigment quality, aftercare, or individual differences, these long-lasting results are a testament to the artistry and science behind permanent makeup.

If you find yourself among those whose permanent makeup brows haven’t faded enough for a colour booster, cherish the enduring beauty they provide. And when the time comes for a touch-up, rest assured that you’re investing in a beauty solution that continues to enhance your natural features.

Melanie Aslin – Beauty Therapist

2022-12-17T13:45:05+00:00August 25th, 2022|Categories: Latest, New Training Course|

Hi I’m Melanie Aslin I am a beauty therapist and I have been a qualified Permanent Makeup technician for 5 years. Not long after my initial training I found out I was pregnant, as amazing as this was, I was unable to push and focus on doing permanent makeup treatments as I was busy being a new mum. I slowly started to loose confidence in doing these treatments so stopped pushing them and focussed on what I knew and what I was confident in but, I wanted more. I wanted to start pushing the permanent makeup but I was massively lacking in confidence.

I found Amy and saw that she was offering training. I decided to retrain focussing on powder brows and hairstroke brows. I was only initially trained in microblading and not machine strokes but I didn’t enjoy microblading at all.

Amy took me back to basics and we revisited colour theory along with all the contra-indications and contra actions. The hands on manual training with a machine was intense. I worked on latex and Amy gave me pointers where I could improve and got me creating a smooth airy powder brow, before moving onto a live model. The next day we focussed on hairstrokes, it took me a little while to get the hang of creating hairstrokes but Amy was really patient with me and again helped me with techniques. I got to do another model from start to finish under the watchful eye of Amy she ensured my depth and speed remained constant throughout. The final day I got to do a further 2 models which really cemented the techniques I learnt and helped build my confidence.

“If anyone is thinking of training in Permanent Makeup I 100% recommend Amy, she is patient and very knowledgeable. I now have a renewed confidence in permanent makeup and have happily pushed it and am now getting more clients.”

UK PMU Conference & Awards Runner Up for Best Lip Artist! 2022

2022-07-14T12:01:20+01:00July 14th, 2022|Categories: Latest, Lip Treatment|Tags: , |

  What an incredible weekend I have just had!!

Finally after a very, very long wait (thanks covid!) I finally got to attend the UK PMU conference and Awards which I originally booked back in early 2020.

This event is always amazing as not only do I get to watch and listen to some of the most talented artists from around the world, but I also get to meet my industry colleagues who I have only ever met on social media. Having a room full of like minded and supportive women and men is just an amazing thing to be part of.

Unfortunately no wins for me this year but getting RUNNER UP for best lip artist in the UK out of the hundreds of entrants was an absolutely incredible achievement for me and I’m so grateful!    

New Treatments?

While I was at the conference I got to learn a bit more about a treatment I have been interested in offering you all.

Its called Plasma.

This treatment is amazing for tightening up loose crepey skin that has lost its collagen. And the results are phenomenal!
It is the only alternative treatment for Blepharoplasty, it can be used on the face, neck, hands, tummy’s etc. If the skin is loose it can help improve it.

So my question to you is, would you like me to offer it?

Pics below taken on my phone from the conference so please excuse the poor quality.  


I hope you are all keeping your permanent makeup protected in this glorious weather we are having and I’ll hopefully catch up with you soon!

The BeautifEye protocol specifically targets this difficult to treat area. Focusing on boosting hydration and improving the contour of the eye, bringing back your natural radiance.

The NanoSoft microneedle is used to inject intradermally the NCTF 135 HA serum which contains Hyaluronic Acid and 59 active ingredients. The 0.6ml in length microneedles deliver the serum directly to the area to be treated in a near painless way.

Remember to Wear Sun cream

2020-04-13T21:15:11+01:00April 13th, 2020|Categories: Suncream|Tags: , |

Wear Sunscreen

We are all searching for the way to keep our skin looking young and healthy. In 2019 we as a nation spent a staggering £920 million on just facial skincare.

You could slow the ageing process by using just one product daily?

UV exposure is the reason behind 80% of your skins ageing, and even on an overcast day, only 25% of the UV rays are blocked out. Meaning 75% of UV rays still getting through and damaging your skin. You can’t feel the damage but its happening.

We have all done it, gone out and not even thought to wear sun cream, or popped it on in the morning then not bothered to reapply. I have had a few sunburns over the years and regretted my stupidity pretty quickly. Those red bits being super sore and no amount of after-sun can sooth that red, blistering, angry skin. The scary thing is sun cream is so important, especially around the time where we “know everything” and think we are “invincible”. A study in the USA on women who had 5 blistering sunburns between the ages of 15 and 20 were 80% more likely to develop a melanoma skin cancer.

Sun cream is important at any age but getting your first sunburn at a young age is just setting yourself up for major skin damage later on if the pattern continues.

But I want a tan, I love having a tan, it makes me feel and look healthy. I only tan when I burn

Well that gorgeous tan you get after burning isn’t actually healthy. Nope, not one bit. That brown skin is damaged DNA. Whether you tan naturally, after a sunburn or on a sunbed all your doing is damaging your skins DNA.

The only healthy glow you can get is out of a bottle. And that’s it.

So what should you use to protect your skin and your DNA? You guessed it, sun cream! We should all be wearing a broad spectrum sun cream with a SPF of at least 30 daily. And it should be reapplied every 80 minutes, or after swimming or sweating. Its so important that we not only use products that protect our skin from damage, but also the environment.

After everything in the news about sun creams damaging the coral reefs, I don’t know about you, but I felt like I was damned if I did and damned if I didn’t. Protect myself and kill the coral or burn myself and protect the coral reef. So I decided to try a 100% natural sun cream, it smelt OK and it did ok at protecting my skin, but it left a white chalky cast to my skin. I’m white enough already, so I was practically a glowing white beacon.

That was until I tried the Tropic Great Barrier sun cream.

Now although the Tropic Great Barrier is not 100% natural, it does not mean that it is not 100% safe. This lightweight sun cream has been formulated with synthetic chemical and mineral sunscreens meaning that, not only is it safe for you and your skin, it is also safe for the environment. Being the only company in Europe to have the Protect Land and Sea certification and it also has a ZERO rating on the Think Dirty app.

Another must have for me, a sun cream specifically formulated for the face, especially as we should use it daily. No one wants to have a shiny face 24/7, so Sun Day is the perfect product for me. Not only does it have broad spectrum protection, it also protects against free radicals and HEV light. It makes for a great primer under makeup too.

So there you have it. If you want to have youthful skin, there’s only really one product you need. SUN CREAM!

Enjoy the weather but please remember to keep yourself and your family sun safe.

All products can be purchased via this link, please remember to add me ( Amy Packer ) as your ambassador when you checkout.

Permanent Eyelash Extensions

2020-04-02T09:03:39+01:00August 4th, 2018|Categories: Permanent Eyelash Extensions|Tags: |

Permanent Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions are a big thing at the moment, with people having them done for a special event or a holiday and some people having them topped up every 2-4 weeks! And I can totally understand why. Waking up with gorgeous eyes, going swimming without looking like a panda, not having to worry about the emotional moment at a wedding, they are fab. But please when you decide to have lash extensions, do your research! Many lash technicians are fully qualified and can offer you an experience you will love, but there are a few out there who will give you an experience you wish you never had. From allergic reactions to poor quality glue, to eye infections from dirty tools, and not forgetting badly applied lashes making you look more Marilyn Manson than Marilyn Monroe.

But if like me you love having defined gorgeous eyes 24/7 which won’t take up an hour or two every 2 weeks having a permanent eyeliner procedure may be more up your street. A fine line also known as a lash enhancement can be tattooed through the base of the lashes, making the lashes look fuller and darker, it’s subtle but it looks fab. Or for something a little thicker and more noticeable you can have eyeliner. Starting as a lash enhancement this procedure may take a few more treatments to build thickness, but once complete you will have eyes that are defined and gorgeous eyeliner which won’t smudge. Permanent makeup can last years but a colour booster is advised every 1 year to 18 months to keep the colour looking fresh.

Both eyelash extension and permanent eyeliner treatments complement each other perfectly, but if you want permanent eyeliner then please make sure you have the lashes removed by your lash technician at least a week before your treatment.

Gorgeous eyes here we come!

The Importance of Permanent Makeup Patch Tests

2020-04-02T09:03:40+01:00July 26th, 2018|Categories: Makeup Patch Test|Tags: |

The Importance of Permanent Makeup Patch Tests

With any permanent makeup treatment there is one thing you MUST have before treatment commences and it could save your face.

A patch test should be carried out at least 24-48 hours before any permanent makeup is applied. This is a simple step which takes just a few seconds to do but could save you a lot of hassle and heart ache.

Using a lancet, the skin should be pierced and the pigment applied, and also any topical anaesthetic that will be used. This feels like a tiny scratch and may sting for a split second, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Reactions include, rashes, major swelling (there will be a little swelling after a treatment, but this is normal and should go down within a few days) inflammation, irritation, soreness and sometimes lumps under the skin.

Having a negative patch test result does not mean that you won’t develop a reaction in the future, but as long as you don’t show any signs of a reaction during the patch test you should be fine to go ahead with a treatment if you wish.

It amazes me that there are still some technicians out there that are happy to perform a treatment without carrying out a patch test first. Not only is it so easy to do but the clients health should ALWAYS be put first.
