Difference Eyebrow Cosmetic Tattoo Techniques


This is probably the question I am most frequently asked in regards to eyebrow cosmetic tattoo – and one which does require some explanation, as in my own opinion, there is no one method which is superior to another – different method of application achieve different looks, and are suitable for different faces.
Below is an explanation of both the hair stroke/feathering method of cosmetic tattoo (also referred to as eyebrow embroidery) and the powder fill/solid fill technique (also referred to as block method)

The hair stroke method has become incredibly popular in recent years, I think in some part due to the trend for thick yet bushy and natural looking brows that seem to be on all the catwalks at the moment.

A very natural, lifelike looking brow can be created using the hair stroke method, which essentially is using the tattoo needle to create lots of little hair like impressions by implanting pigment in a line under the skin.

The advantages are that it does look very natural, like real hair. It is perfect for people that already have quite good hair coverage, and for those who want to fill out gaps in their eyebrows where hair is missing, because the strokes can be made to mimic the natural hair present in colour, thickness and angle. In younger skin, it can even work very well for creating a complete brow where little to no hair exists.

Cosmetic Tattoo Hair stroke/feathering method only

However, it generally does not last as long as long as the powder fill technique – this is because the action of ‘stroking’ the needle through the skin to create a ‘hair like’ mark does not actually implant the pigment as deeply as the powder fill method. It usually needs to be retouched more frequently than the powder fill method, as it fades more quickly (particular hair stroke brows done in lighter colours). So if for you, the most important factor in your cosmetic tattoo treatment is longevity, I would probably not opt for the hair stroke technique alone.

Also, in older skin, or skin that has been aged prematurely from sun exposure, the hair strokes do not stay in the skin as well defined as in younger, more elastic skin. So for mature clients, I would often recommend the powder fill, or hair strokes over an initial powder fill treatment, for a better result.

The powder fill method involves the application of thousands of tiny little dots of pigment, inserted into the skin, gradually building up a colour and a defined shape. It is the more traditional method of cosmetic tattoo, and the pigment usually lasts longer when applied in this manner, as it is deeper in the skin.

However, many people are fearful of this method looking too ‘solid’ or unnatural, because it does indeed have a more defined, solid look than hair strokes alone.

But, what many people don’t realize is it can be made to look very natural looking – by not saturating the desired brow shape 100% with pigment – to allow a defined yet soft/non solid look.

Powder fill brows do have a more defined look about them than hair strokes, and some people don’t like this look as much, as it can lack in texture. The powder fill/block tattoo has in previous decades got quite a bad name for itself, as in many older style facial tattoos you see these days, the pigments used were not really suitable for cosmetic tattoo (a in, blacks used in eyebrows fading to blue or green – eeek!). Cosmetic tattoo pigments have come a really long way since then, and pigments for brows are blended browns, blondes, and taupes, and all extremely natural looking,

A fantastic compromise between the two methods described above, is having an initial powder fill treatment in a slightly lighter pigment that you would like for the final result, followed about 4-6 weeks later by a slightly darker hair stroke application over the top. This, in my opinion, is a great way to achieve a natural hair stroke look, but with better definition and longevity than hair stroke on naked skin. Two treatments (initial, and retouch) are offered in all of my pricing for eyebrow cosmetic tattoo, so it does not actually cost anymore to have these two methods done subsequently to create this look.

Anyway, I hope this post sheds some light on the different application methods for cosmetically tattooed eyebrows, and helps you if you trying to make a decision regarding cosmetic tattoo. I am available at Lady Lash every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for complimentary consultations in cosmetic tattoo, so if you would like to come in and see me to discuss what options might work for you and to see some of my work, please give us a call!

Mistakes in makeup

Mistakes in makeup

Checked for yourself: mistakes in makeup, which add to our age and make the image cheap

It used to be like this: I let my eyebrows down, I made up my eyelashes, I powdered it up … You look in the mirror – and you understand: “was it better”?

Wrong tone

This is the most common mistake in the makeup of girls. The tone is picked up on the skin on the arm, cheek or even at random, but only not as it should be. Someone in the tone looks darker, someone is pinker than necessary. An example of our heroine: she wanted to mask her pallor, choosing a darker shade (and even if there is no such goal, very often for light skin there is simply no suitable color in the ruler).

What to do?

To choose a tone for the color of the neck and your skin type. After the supposed correct variant, apply the chosen tonal base to the entire face (use the samplers in the store just so), go out into the daylight and see that there are no differences. Then go through this tone for several hours, see how he behaves and whether everything suits. And only then, with a favorable outcome, buy.
As a result of applying the tone, the face and neck should be of the same shade:



Almost everyone has already adopted fashion for wide natural eyebrows, but far from everyone knows how to emphasize their shape. The most common mistake in this case – too bright drawing, a clear line from the top and a bad feathering, as in the photo on the left.

What to do?

Remember: the eyebrows should be drawn so that it was completely unnoticeable. You can draw the middle lines with light strokes without touching the boundaries. So they will be thicker, but will remain natural, as in the photo on the right.

Arrows – this is generally a painful topic! The main mistake is the space between the arrow and the eyelashes in the form of a white strip – an unpainted pencil / eyeliner space at the eyelashes. The same problem: the presence of an arrow and the absence of mascara on eyelashes. Or the wrong shape of the arrow. Sometimes all the errors happen right away, as in the photo on the left.

What to do?

carefully draw a ciliary contour so that the arrow represents a single line along with the eyelashes and framed the eye
the end of the arrow should be a continuation of the line of growth of the lower lashes
its thickness should correspond to the length and thickness of the eyelashes – the thicker the arrow, the longer and thicker the eyelashes. If you draw a thick arrow and do not glue the bundles of eyelashes, it will seem as if there are none at all
it should be black (or brown) and no spaces

Arrows NYC


Shadows require feathering. And the darker the color, the more difficult it is to shade. However, in the photo on the left you can see that the medium intensity tones do not always fit well.

What to do?

In two cases, identical shadows (2 colors) were used with the difference only in feathering. In the second case, it is present. If you can not shade the shadows in a perfect haze and the boundaries of the color are clearly visible, then it’s better to give up shadows altogether. If the feathering is not ideal, the eye seems dirty, not expressive.


The most important thing in lipstick is the combination of its color and skin tone. They should be in harmony. The photo on the left shows clearly that the lipstick is too red for our heroine. The photo on the right takes a colder shade.

What to do?

To choose a lipstick under the skin tone and take into account: soft shine is more relevant than a pearl gloss.

How do you get to perform Micropigmentation of Lips successful?

The area of the lips is a fairly more complicated for the application of permanent makeup compared to the other regions of the face, since the labial mucosa is a region of high concentration of vascularizaciones, in which, the fixing of the pigment is less stable, and so the micropigmentation of the labial mucosa can present notable differences compared to the profiling, propensity to disappear quickly (in a few days) or to present a tone too clear.
