New Brows and Gorgeous Eyes
The lovely Judy has been one of my clients for her beauty treatments for quite a few years now. I have always tinted her brows and eyelashes to give them a bit more definition but as many people know this only lasts 4-6 weeks. She was getting fed up of applying brow pencil and eye-liner everyday, then having to fix smudges throughout the day as well. So she bit the bullet and booked in to have her new brows and gorgeous eyes defined with permanent make-up at my clinic.
We did brows first. Drawing the desired shape on with pencil first to make sure she was happy with the shape. We decided on doing hair stroke brows to keep them as natural as possible, but at the same time giving her the much needed, and wanted definition to her natural brow.
The colour was chosen based on her skin colouring, we went for a rich warm brown which perfectly complemented her eye colour and hair colour too.
Below are some before and straight after pics will have to wait a few weeks for the fully healed result. Colour will have faded slightly. The jet black eye-liner will also fade to a soft black once it has healed into the skin.

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 eye-liner 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 eye-liner. 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 eye-liner which won’t smudge. Permanent make-up can last years but a colour booster is advised every 1 year to 18 months to keep the colour looking fresh.
Eyelash Extensions and Permanent Eye-liner treatments complement each other perfectly, but if you want permanent eye-liner then please make sure you have the lash extensions removed by your lash technician at least a week before your treatment.

Getting My Eyeliner Tattoo
Well today is the day! I have been waiting ages to have my eyeliner tattooed on, and although I hate having anything near my eyes or water going in my eyes I am surprisingly calm. I have total faith in my technician and I know she will do a good job! (I did train with her after all!)
I am having upper and lower lash enhancement with a thin eyeliner across the top.

Lower Eyeliner Tattoo
Firstly we decided on thickness and how far in I wanted the lower liner to come. Then the colour, I wanted a smokey charcoal look, to just enhance my eyes when I didn’t have any mascara on.
Does permanent makeup hurt?
The topical anaesthetic was firstly applied to the lower lash line. 20 minutes later, I was ready. And you know what, it didn’t feel too bad, slightly scratchy but it didn’t hurt. More anaesthetic was applied as the treatment on the lower lash line commenced, I was completely numb.
When the lower was finished the excess pigment was just wiped away and the anaesthetic applied to the upper lash line, time for a quick cuppa while the top was numbing!
Upper Eyeliner Tattoo
Now the top was slightly different feeling, the outer edge was fine just a light scratchy sensation but closer to the inner corner it felt a little bit stingier, but, it only lasted a few seconds and more numbing was applied. The inner corner is a bit more sensitive but was never a treatment stopper. The inner lash line is done in very small stages so that the anaesthetic has a chance to work.
When the treatment was finished I was cleaned off ready for the mirror. Wow, a little swollen but my eyes looked amazing! The thickness was perfect, and I knew that the colour was going to look very black at first but they looked great.

My eyes are a little swollen but they don’t hurt, they just feel heavy like I had had a very late night.

Few days later
Swelling has gone down and I still love it! I’ll be sad when the colour starts to shed as it heals!
5 Days After Treatment
The colour is starting to lightly shed on the lower lash line. I have the odd itch every now and then but I am just lightly tapping the itch to stop it. Don’t want to scratch as it may pull the pigment out. Feels great not having to wear mascara as it heals. You can use mascara if you want but it must be a new one.
3 Weeks After Treatment
I am completely healed! The top line is looking great, the lower line has held on one side but has not held so well on the other side. It’s not an issue though as it’s such a fine line anyway, and seeing as I have only had one treatment I am very impressed with how good the top looks. Just need to wait another three weeks till I can have my top up, by then the colour should be a bit brighter too!

Hair Loss & Thinning
Loosing your hair can have a massive impact on your self esteem and confidence. Whether its because of a medical condition, medication, or a trauma, it can make you feel anxious and upset, and feeling that way may and can cause further hair loss. Shuna Hammocks from Sussex Trichology is a specialist in hair loss and hair thinning, she aims to help her patients improve their condition and reverse the effects of non permanent hairloss.
Eyebrow loss is a scarring condition called Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia mostly found in post-menopausal women. There are also similar symptoms faced by people with thyroid dysfunction where the outer third of the brow is lost and some in Alopecia Areata too.
The eyebrows really frame the face and seeing the damage in the mirror is a constant reminder that there is a problem.
Sussex Trichology and Amy Packer Permanent Make Up
Working together we can not only help each others businesses, but we can really make a difference to our clients lives. For some of Shuna’s patients their hair loss will be permanent, but there is a solution. By coming to me, I can create a new set of brows or eyeliner for a patient of Shuna’s who is suffering from a form of hair loss. Permanent make up takes away the hassel of constantly applying make up to the area and boosts someones confidence. Not only improving the way they look but improving their lives.
If you are suffering from any type of hair loss, thinning or any scalp issues then contact Shuna Hammocks at Sussex Trichology
