How exactly do you care for your newly-tattooed brows and lips?
#1 Rule is to not get both areas wet for at least 24 hours.
That means, you cannot swim, wash or heavily sweat right after your procedure. Why? You want to protect your brows and lips from infection. They will give you an antibiotic and other aftercare ointments. For the brows I had to apply the antibiotic ointment for two days. For the lips, I had to put the cream on for 7 days. And no, you cannot use lip color while your lips are healing. Get a better idea of the aftercare in the video. I detail everything here:

It took a while for me to finally say yes and try out semi-permanent make-up. Today, a lot of women have realized how perfectly shaped brows can brighten and open up one’s face. Hence this era’s massive obsession of #EyebrowsOnFleek. If you do your make-up everyday, you’d know that getting perfect brows is no easy task. It takes practice to get the right arch, length and shape which is appropriate for your face shape. I admittedly got tired of having to spend so much time on just my brows everyday, so with much convincing from Dra. Joan Clarence, I gave in.
Just like you, I had fears. Whenever I’d come across the term “tattooed brows”, visions of stark black and even green-tinged brows would haunt me (my reference point is my equally kikay grandmother, who had her brows tattooed when she was 60). It turns out, the pigments they used back then really had the tendency to turn greenish over time. Thankfully today, organic eyebrow pigments are being used. While these are deemed safer (and does not run the risk of turning green or black), the downside is the effect only lasts a year or two, depending on the body’s “reception” of the pigments. That is why a retouch every two years is encouraged. In the VLOG I talk about the procedure, length of time, the pain level and the after care. If you’ve always been curious about getting semi-permanent brows, watch and learn and I hope you get to try it out! Special thanks to my beautiful doctor Dra. Clarence for being so patient with me and guiding me all throughout the process.
