It has been a week since I did Erabrowlogy Redesign and Change at Erabelle. I have long heard about the Erabrowlogy service and was so excited to try it out when I was given the chance to. I did a thorough research on Erabelle and the reviews were extremely positive. My previous embroidery was done 3 years ago and it has faded off, except that there are traces of the ink still. I knew that it was time to give my brows a fresh look as I prefer having thicker and straighter brows now.
Having pretty and neat brows is important as it helps to frame the entire face. I have seen people who don’t really pay much attention to groom their brows properly. I am a perfectionist when it comes to shaping and drawing the brows and this process can take up to 5 mins. What if I can save this 5 mins to sleep longer?
The event was held at the Bugis branch. The interior looks feminine, cosy and whimsical. Every individual room is inspired by fairytales like Little Red Riding Hood, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella! Apart from embroidery services, Erabelle also provide a range of facials and some body services.
This is the foot bath area which is a mandatory, relaxing ritual for all facial or body service customers, to start their treatment sojourn.
Lots and lots and awards for their brow services!
So… what is Erabrowlogy?
Erabrowlogy is a holistic brow service with a pre-treatment step and boosted aftercare routine, to give beautiful and natural-looking brows that frame the face with enhanced color retention. The effect is expected to last from 2 to 3 years with the full course of package and of course, proper care. This service will lend color and depth to pale, faded or naturally sparse brows and can correct the shape and color of poorly-embroidered eyebrows.
Now, don’t be confused with Erabrowlogy and Erabrowlogy Redesign and Change. The latter applies to people who had eyebrow embroidery or tattoo before and would like the brow artist to assess their brows, and correct their brows to a suitable shape and color.
Nervous yet excited.
My ugly brows, looking extremely unsightly. A mask was applied onto my brow area to remove dead skin cells and excess sebum to prep the skin for the embroidery (Step 1). After which, the brow artist went through a thorough analysis of my face shape before designing a suitable brow design for me (Step 2). The artist looks at 5 different factors when designing brows:
- Length of eyebrows
- Thickness of eyebrows (according to factors like distance between the brows and eyes, size of eyes, size of face and body frame)
- Shape and tip of the brow arch
- Starting point of the brows must be light and natural-looking
- Ending point of the brows must be complete
I was given a patch test to ensure that my skin will not react negatively to the color pigments and numbing cream (Step 4). The brow artist had assured me that new micropen tips and color caps are used for every customer to ensure that strict hygiene standards are observed (Step 5). Numbing cream was applied onto my brows for about 15 mins (Step 6). Using specialized Softstroke technique and Erabelle’s micropen, colors are applied just below the epidermis of skin to enhance facial beauty, simulating the look of perfectly-drawn brows.
The process barely took an hour to finish. After the session, I was given the Browlogy Care Kit to soothe the area and treat it. The set consists of:
- Aftercare cream: This has to be applied every morning and night for at least 5 days of the colour-settling process.
- Hydra Cleansing Water: For ease of cleansing, Hydra Cleansing Water can be used with cotton pads to cleanse the face, avoiding the brow area.
- Skin Calming Mask: To counter discomfort and redness after the procedure, it is recommended to use this mask for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th nights after the procedure for a soothing effect.
Much thanks to my brow artist, Cecilia! This is not the final look as I would need to return to do a touch up and thicken the brows! Having the embroidery saved me lots of time while doing my makeup and I don’t have to worry about having naked brows if I am not made up.
