The top 10 Common Problems of Eyebrow Microblading in Egypt

Ever since Eyebrow Microblading was introduced to Egypt and it has been the center of every beauty talk as the magical solution behind beautiful eyebrows. But sadly to say that microblading in Egypt has used and abused. Based on the number of feedbacks and experiences I get from Egyptian girls who complain about microblading results.

I always recommend micropigmentation as it is more effective than the microblading technique.

Here is a list of the most frequent problem of Microblading in Egypt and why it is not suitable for everyone:

1 Poor hygiene and safety standards

This is the main concern for both client and technician. Beauty is important and getting the perfect brows should never put your health or safety to risk. Clients usually ask about needles but there are many other details you need to be aware of like how everything on the work tray should be either disposable or very well wrapped and covered even the handpiece of the machine.

2 Eyebrow Microblading is not for everyone

Oily and porous skin is the dominant skin type among Egyptians and it is the number one contradiction for Microblading. Performing a wrong technique on wrong skin type will only leave the client with poor-retention gray eyebrows.
Unfortunately, clients are left helpless after many microblading sessions with a blame on their skin that it did not take the color. But whose fault it is of choosing the wrong technique? is it the client or the artist ?!

3 Inefficient tools and low-quality inks

Low-quality ink is used and it is the main reason behind wired brow colors you see around. Low-quality ink tattoo can be easily purchased and if it is implanted deep into the skin, it could last forever. While good quality pigments are regulated especially for the face to fade regularly out of the skin within 2-3 years. Add to this Microblading needles are majorly manufactured in China using and produced under very low-quality products and conditions.

4 Many touchups to get the result

Due to the lack of consultation and skin tests, some people might don’t get the results they are looking for. So many touchups and sessions can have a bad effect on the skin and would cost more money and time. This has been one of the most common feedback and the manual techniques has its limitation, unlike the digital micorpigmentation which has more efficient results from the first session.

5 Getting into the wrong depth of the skin

Microblading is marketed as a superficial technique where color is implanted in the first layer of the skin which is totally wrong because first layer of the skin is the Epidermis which is renewed completely every 10 days meaning if microblading is done within this layer it will completely disappear within 2 weeks! For microblading to last for a good period it has to be implanted in the upper dermis ( second layer of skin ).

6 Scar tissue

Microblading is done using a manual blade that slices the skin using hand pressure in small incisions that imitate the hair. Cutting the skin all in one shot expose the skin to a very high risk of developing scars this is why microblading considered very traumatizing to the skin and can result in scar tissue.

7 Microblading is an old technique

Another myth about microblading is that it is the latest and most advanced technique in beauty world. In fact, this technique is commonly known in Eastern Europe and Latin America due to the nature of the beauty market while Micropigmentation is widely known in Western Europe and America as the latest technique. Microblading is a time-worn technique originated in the back alleys of northern China and known in Asia with another name “Embroidery”.

8 Nothing else to offer than Microblading

Beauty Salons in Egypt offer Microblading as the only solution they have to save your eyebrows. But what if you are not suitable for the technique? What if you have oily skin? Do they carry any other solution for your eyebrows ?? Needless to say that eyebrow world has many more to offer than microblading and professionals always have more than one technique to give you that pair of beautiful eyebrows you’ve always dreamed about.

9 Removal first, Microblading second

Tattoo removal in Egypt is becoming so popular due to the high demand of everyone wants to get microblading. Referring all potential client who has an old previous tattoo removal and using different products some of them are really dangerous and leaving second-degree and scars like Rejuvi.

10 Poor aftercare

Finally comes client role by following aftercare instructions and paying great attention to their eyebrows like always wear SPF on their eyebrows when exposing to the sun. All these play a great role in prolonging your eyebrow microblading

Eyebrows Micropigmentation Is The New Fashion in Egypt

If you still believe that manual microblading is the latest technique for eyebrows then you are definitely wrong !

The eyebrow micropigmentation is in Egypt now! It is the latest technic in semi-permanent makeup which gives soft and natural appearance of the brows with very fine and crisp hair strokes that don’t blur or spread.

Why is eyebrow micropigmentation is better than manual microblading?

microblading egypt rabab kelani - eyebrows egypt

Are you searching for reliable and safe eyebrow treatment? Well .. you need to think first about which type of treatments to get before booking an appointment. Many would think that it is only one type of treatment that is available.

Eyebrow hair-stroking is not limited to the manual technique only. Let me introduce you to the latest and most comfortable technique to get for your eyebrows and why it is way better.

1. Painless treatment with the eyebrow micropigmentation technique:

digital eyebrow micropigmentationA lot of girls had a painful experience with manual eyebrow microblading. The pain with the blade technique is basically caused by intensive slicing with hand pressure which causes a painful time for girls that could last for two hours. that’s why I totally understand when a client contacts me with concerns and questions about how painful it is.

However, the good news for you ladies is that digital micropigmentation is unlike the manual traditional treatment. It is Painless and comfortable treatment since we only work in the upper dermis layer of the skin.

The digital machine provides an accurate micro-pigmentation without the need for hand pressure like the manual type. And I assure you that many of my clients even fall asleep during the treatment.

2. Strictly adhering to high standards of hygiene

micorblading egypt - eyebrow micorblading cairoThe thing that really terrifies me when I watch beauty salons and see how they perform the treatment with poor safety and hygiene standards. They don’t get proper work table, sometimes they use the bare arms of the chair to put blood-soaked cotton pads! It is dangerous when the next client sits on the same chair and unintentionally places her hands there! Technicians are not allowed to touch everything around without washing their contaminated hands.

Getting perfect eyebrows should not risk your safety. Your health is the priority here so every equipment and tool has to be covered with disposable sheets and raps including the chair and table. Nothing should be placed on the working tables unless it is disposable. Wearing disposable mask and gloves is a must for the safety of both the technician and client. Needles should be sterile single-use and disposable.

3. What do you expect is what you get. Pre-drawing, shaping & color choice

I got contacted by a lot of desperate ladies who have previous eyebrow work who are not satisfied with their brow shape or color. And mostly complain about that the technician had no color choices and the only color she has was mostly black!

Well, I smile and show them my color collection .. there is no single black in this range! a wide range of browns to match your natural eyebrow hair for more natural results.

Discussing the perfect eyebrow shape which flatters your face and accentuates your beauty is important before starting. Pre-drawing gives you an idea of how your eyebrows will look like after the treatment and give the technician a guideline to deliver symmetrical eyebrows.

No matter how many years of experience the technician has under her belt, freehand-drawing cannot be performed right on people’s faces. For me, I go even further by not only drawing the shape but sketching my hair-stroke pattern with a special pencil to give my client balances hair-stoked eyebrows.

4. It is creative symmetrical brows with natural flow hair-stokes. Not blocks!

eyebrow microblading egypt rabab kelani makeup artist cairoUsing very fine needle in digital eyebrow micropigmentation gives the possibility to draw thin hair-strokes in the same natural hair direction.

Not only that but in micropigmentation the needle enables to draw curved hair-strokes, not like manual technique where hair-strokes look more straight and linear. The accuracy of digital machine gives more symmetrical and even brows.

5. Using latest German digital machine and skin-friendly micro pigments

Striving to get the best for my clients and always putting their safety and health first. By using a precise digital machine that penetrates skin smoothly to input the color inside the dermal layer of the skin without bleeding nor pain.

This machine is using special cartridge needles which are cross-contamination free, sterile, single-use and disposable. And knowing that pigments play a big role in the final result, I use micro pigments that are specially designated for the eyebrows. High-quality pigments that passed all European standards to give true color and fade without changing in shades.

Eyebrow Embroidery

What do you need to know about Microblading?

Microblading is becoming an incredibly popular treatment as more and more people like the natural results that it can offer.

What is the eyebrow microblading treatment? Eyebrow microblading (or eyebrow embroidery in Asia) is a relatively a manual method, which does not use the advanced permanent makeup machine. In Egypt and the Middle East, the eyebrow micorblading is widely known and many artists are providing this treatment as the latest technique while the fact that it is not true. The digital permanent makeup which called “eyebrow micropigmentation” is the latest PMU technique in the world.  Due to the lack of makeup artists who are using the advanced the technique, the manual microblading is commonly used in Egypt.

Why microblading is not suitable for everyone?

There are some cases when the lady cannot get her eyebrows done by microblading technique:

  • People with oily skin: Oily skin is a very common type of skin in Egypt and Arabic countries. Oily skin with big pores or what is called “chicken skin”: thicker oily skin has a very hard time getting crisp hair-strokes with a tendency to blur with excessive oil secretion in microblading the blade cannot provide good results due to the limitation of the manual hand pressures.  The micropigmentation is more suitable and has best results for oily skin due to its super-fine needle and accuracy with pigmentation inside the skin layers.
  • People with sensitive skin: If you have sensitive skin you better avoid the manual microblading. The manual technique might harm your skin and the blade is used can leave scars on your eyebrows. Micropigmentations is more skin friendly as a super-fine needle is used which helps to give you the best results without scars and pain-free.
  • People with traditional eyebrow tattoo: If you already have an old eyebrow tattoo then manual microblading or the digital micropigmentation is not suitable.
  • People under certain types of medications: Increased bleeding tendency or Aspirin and Vitamin K medication.
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding: as all permanent makeup procedures, none of it can be to pregnant ladies or those who are still breastfeeding.
  • Certain cases: High blood pressure, skin problems like acne, broken capillaries and moles, Keratosis and very dry skin.

For these several reasons when a lady would like to have an eyebrow microblading technique; I always advise my clients to have micrpigementation as it has much better results from the 1st session and suitable for the Egyptian girls’ skin.

Consultation is important

Don’t apply any technique on your skin before doing a research and consulting the makeup artists. I always ask my clients several questions to make sure we are on the safe side; I also check her skin type, and if she has a warm or a cold blood type; so I would know which pigment color to use.

Natural brows are the best

Noting that not all the ladies are good candidates for the eyebrow treatments; some of them just need to let their eyebrows hair grow and reshape them; they would have an extremely natural look. So don’t be hard on yourselves and give your natural eyebrows a chance! For all these mentioned reasons I advise all the ladies to pass by for a free consultation before setting the tattoo appointments!

Natural eyebrow is the best eyebrow.

Are you wondering how to get natural eyebrow embroidery? Well, eyebrow embroidery is the last-ditch-effort treatment that promises to change your brow life. It is semi-permanent makeup solution to thin, uneven, over-plucked and sparse eyebrows. finally and most importantly to give you the natural look!

Permanent eyebrow micropigementation promises to give the most natural looking eyebrow if it would be performed properly by a qualified specialist who is acknowledgeable of skin-types and face dimensions, sticks to high hygiene standards and has an artistic eye. Otherwise the treatment might result in grey patchy uneven eyebrows that may last for several years if the pigment was implanted too deep in the skin. You might be lucky and choose the right makeup artist to shape your eyebrows, but you will also need to know what it takes to get a natural eyebrow shape.

Natural Eyebrow Micropigementation rabab kelani

Beautiful ladies, here are some important tips to get natural eyebrow micropigmentation:

  1. Follow your brow bone and natural eyebrow shape: When drawing your new eyebrow micropigmentation shape it is very important to follow your brow bone and natural shape of your eyebrows. Don’t try to copy your favorite celebrity brow shape or follow latest eyebrows trends. Always remember each face has its own eyebrow shape that defines its features.
  2. Go for soft natural shape: Avoid extremely straight or exaggerating arched eyebrows which will drag away attention from your eyes and features. believe it or not, your eyebrows can change the whole way your eyes and face look. They could make your features look sad and angry, or give you that nice relaxed look.
  3. Don’t ask for a square front of your eyebrow micropigmentation shape: Square eyebrows? oh no! squared eyebrows can immediately make them look artificially drawn. Instead, choose a softly curved beginning that gives natural looking eyebrows.
  4. Go for natural eyebrow color: Choose a color that matches your existent natural eyebrow hair color or your real hair color if there are no brow hairs: to get the most natural eyebrow embroidery it is very important that hair-strokes perfectly blend with your real eyebrow hairs in both color and direction. Eyebrow micropigmentation will look artificial when there is the difference in color between hair-strokes an eyebrow hair and this will be more noticeable by time.
  5. Your eyebrows are part of your face: Work within standard measurements and dimensions of your face. Perfect eyebrow Shape is determined according to Face structure, between-eye distance, and golden ratio measurements. Your eyebrows should start at a certain point that balances the distance between your eyes, and they have to end at a place that lifts your face up and out. Your arch should be situated properly too.
  6. Remember there is always a fine tone for density: Too thick eyebrow is tricky. After eyebrow embroidery the result may not be as dense as your natural eyebrow hairs, this will lead -in the case going too thick than natural brow hairs-  to inconsistent color and non-harmonic shape. Never forgetting eyebrow micropigmentation fades by time!
  7. Don’t wish for identical eyebrows: Both eyebrows cannot get identical naturally or with semipermanent eyebrow micropigmentation: When drawing the shape, don’t obsess over symmetry. Try to shape your eyebrows in a way that ensures they start and end at generally the same points. Keep in mind that your face isn’t perfectly symmetrical, so your brows may not be either (as the saying goes, eyebrows should be sisters, not twins).
  8. Follow the natural flow of hair: Ask your eyebrow makeup artist to follow the natural flow of your eyebrow hairs by drawing finely curved hair-strokes that mimic your real eyebrow hair. For natural eyebrow micropigmentation, hair-strokes should beautifully blend with natural brow hairs or else it will look artificial and noticeable.
  9. Try different semi-permanent eyebrow techniques: Don’t be afraid to get several eyebrow micropigmentation styles or semi-permanent retouches to enhance or build up your new brows. Sometimes drawing hair-strokes is not enough to give the desired density for the brows. Soft shading between hair-strokes will do the trick by giving more defined yet natural results. In shading technique, different shades of brown could be used to give a lovely gradient ombré eyebrow look.
  10. Don’t forget the aftercare: Follow aftercare instructions religiously to get perfect natural eyebrow micropigmentation. After applying my techniques on more than 130 clients, the fabulous eyebrows were the ones who followed the aftercare.  Not paying close attention to aftercare instructions may result in patchy color and blurry hair-strokes.

It is believed that eyebrows are the most important feature of the face, they frame the eyes and highlight our best features. Eyebrows have been in the spotlight more than ever recently, but unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with the perfect eyebrows. Some born with thin or barely existent brows, others might over-plucked them and had to struggle to grow them back. That’s why my joyful moments comes when I see my eyebrow micropigmentation bringing back the beautiful eyebrow look that every woman deserves.

Finally, choosing a semi-permanent makeup treatment is the always about getting a natural look and as well to get my lovely clients non-stopping feedbacks while I am shaping 🙂 I wish you ladies a very natural eyebrow!

Which Eyebrow Shape flatters your face the most?

Thinking of getting a permanent eyebrow micropigmentation and not quite sure about the perfect eyebrow shape for your face?

Eyebrows can enhance your appearance by framing your eyes, flattering your face shape, and balancing your features. The right eyebrow arch can take years off your age, and the distance between your eyebrows can change the whole way your face looks.

Choosing the perfect brow shape depends on several factors like face shape and dimensions without forgetting eye shape and between-eye-distance. By choosing the right brow-shape the entire eye area can be opened up and work to improve your face’s symmetry. The perfect brow for you can make you look younger and rested.

If you need an inspiration for your eyebrow embroidery shape, there are several things you should take into consideration before deciding on your new eyebrow shape.

The best eyebrow shape for your face shape

“Knowing your face shape is the first step to creating your most beautiful look” – Kevyn Aucoin

Eyebrow shapes for a square face

If you have a square face with bold jaw bones, go for thick eyebrows with a strong arch. This will balance your boldest features and draw attention away from your jawline.

Tip: opt for soft color for your eyebrow embroidery that gives shape and definition to your features.

Eyebrow shapes for a heart-shaped face:

This face shape needs to be treated with care because the focus is already on your eyes and forehead. Bold brows are a strong trend but don’t overdo it if you have a heart-shaped face. Try to keep your eyebrow shape straight and not too thick.

Tip: opt for simple soft shape when getting eyebrow embroidery so you don’t draw more attention to your forehead area.

Eyebrow shapes for a long face:

To balance out a long face which has vertically stretched features, try to choose straight-across brows, this will really help to highlight and exaggerate horizontal features and balance out your face shape.

Tip: be sure to elongate your brow-tail at the end by eyebrow embroidery treatment to emphasize things horizontally.

Eyebrow shapes for oval face:

People with oval faces, consider yourselves lucky! A classic, balanced brow is perfect for this well-proportioned face shape.

Tip: There are really no rules, except to work with the dimensions of your face for the most flattering shape.

Eyebrows shapes for round face:

Because rounder faces need a little help in creating definition to the bone structure. a high, sharp arch will provide a vertical point on your face, lifting your features upwards rather than outwards.

Tip: Make sure to get ombre-look eyebrow embroidery that emphasizes the arch and tail more than the beginning of the brows.

The distance of your eyes is also a key factor for creating your perfect eyebrows shape.

Eyebrow shapes for close-set-eyes:

Close-set eyes go well with long, wide arch, elongated brow-tail eyebrows that point things outwards.

Eyebrow shape for wide-set-eyes:

If you have wide-set eyes, try to fill in your brows so that they start further in than your eyes to draw attention to the center.
