Many expecting mothers want to look good in their post-labor hospital bed photos. The only problem is, few women have the chance to deal with the hassle of makeup before being whisked away to the maternity ward. Lash extensions seem like a logical solution for this dilemma--but are they safe for both mom and baby?
If you’ve done any research on the world of permanent makeup, it may seem overwhelming; it can be difficult to keep track of the “what’s what?” of the industry. And once you find out the results aren’t exactly permanent you may be a little discouraged.
Eye Design thinks of the procedures’ semi-permanence--ours last 1-3 years--as one of the many upsides. After all, how many times have you changed your makeup look throughout the years? (#sorrynotsorry for the mental flashbacks of 14-year-old-you in all your heavy-black-eyeliner glory.)
However, it is important to note that permanent makeup is not meant to look like decoration. It is supposed to look natural, define and enhance already-existing beauty and amp up your confidence from the time you wake up to the time you go to sleep.
One look at our Instagram feed and you’re sure to notice one thing: we cater to a lot of women. And while Eye Design prides itself on enhancing the natural beauty of a huge variety of women, you’ll quickly see our male clientele visits the Fifth Avenue studio much less frequently.
So, for the guy considering an eyebrow microblading procedure for himself, the tales of fellow males who have already undergone the procedure are few and far between.
Thankfully, Eye Design teamed up with Vice to bring you into our studio alongside Grant Stoddard, a microblading first-timer and, you guessed it, a guy.
If you have oily skin, then you already know that your skincare routine differs from those who have “normal” or even “dry” skin.
If you’re interested in microblading, it’s important to tell your microblading artist that your skin is naturally oilier than others (she should be able to tell this just by looking at your skin, but if your makeup game is on point, it might be a bit difficult to figure out).
Lash artists are patient, creative, and sometimes, a bit silly. But, more than anything, they’re skillfully trained professionals who want to be treated with the same respect you give your doctor or your dentist.
Here’s a few things you should keep in mind before going to your next lash appointment.
