permanent brows on fleek {review}

I went to the Cape Town Hair and Beauty show this weekend with Rayne, her mom and my mom. We had a little look around and of course first stop was to pick up some Stila products which all had special pricing for the day – score!

We then booked in at the Kardashian Hair Station for some styling by Style Bar’s amazing stylists. There were 3 styles to choose from Kourtney, Kim and Khloe – I had Kourtney and Rayne had Khloe. Of course all the products used were part of the Kardashian Hair range which are all rose gold and black  ?

Nouveau Contour also had a stand where they were offering some permanent make up of course our moms were all up to it. Rayne‘s mom opted for top and bottom eye liner, my mom chose to get her brows done.

Here’s what my mom thought about her brows:

Its Saturday 21.11.2015 I and am Carafay’s plus1 at the Hair and Beauty Show in Cape Town, after receiving our goody bags, we went in to the LOOKOUT.

We had not gotten when we were approached and asked if we would like complimentary Permanent Make Up. So off I went to meet Rocco at Nouveau Contour who are masters in Micropigmentation.

After an in depth consultation, I signed the indemnity and it began. I chose to have my eyebrows done as I now have a few gaps in my eyebrows. I lay down and an anaesthetic was applied to the area, Rocco suggested shaping them a bit to open my eyes, he did so and then began to Tattoo colour in to my brow area, was not sore and a crowd had gathered, felt like quite the Star!!!

The Micropigmentation took about an hour, was not painful and the result is wonderful. Rocco gave me an After care instruction pamphlet and an ointment to apply to my brows for the next few days, the colour will slightly fade over the next 5 days and then my new brows will emerge

I highly recommend Nouveau Contour and Rocco, was the best, the whole team is so professional and their stand so clean and welcoming. Thank you for the treat

Now because I am one that suffers from FOMO I had to go back to the show the next day and get my brows did.BeforeANDAfterPermanentBrowsCARA

If you have any tattoos the feeling will be very familiar although I found it less sore than some of my tattoos. I also had mine done by Rocco, who reshaped them before – its always better to get it done thinner than thicker as thicker you will be stuck with for life, thinner you can then choose if you would like to fill them in and theres a lot more freedom in terms of shaping them.

As you can see my brows are quite full on their own but have some sparse patches at the front, I think thats what made me want to do them the most – the idea of not having to fill my brows in ALL the time!

For the first few days I looked like I had two chongololos on my face but I new they would fade and that the scabs would fall off so i wasn’t too worried. There is definitely a huge difference between the way my moms brows came out to mine – as you can see in these pictures from a week after the procedure:
