Framing the face and exotic eyes…
I had one of my regular clients come in the other day for semi-permanent tattoo. Regular in that Dianne has her eyebrows revamped every year (for the last 7 years). It was interesting because this now friend commented how aging some brows are! What on earth does she mean? Well, eyebrows are telling in many ways and we females are not often blessed with beautifully shaped brows. Sometimes the natural brow gives a woman an unhappy, angry, or soulful look. I say that because frequently that’s exactly what my new clients say they want rid of when they phone me for tattoo makeup. Another reason is the over-plucked, pencil thin brow that seems to never grow back.
A few days ago I had a lovely cosmetic tattoo client lament on her downward cast brows. Desperate now, as surgery was suggested to lift her young forehead, she phoned me. When I met her soon after the call, I asked her if her Mum and Grandmother had the same brows. ‘Yes!’ she said. After the usual two hour cosmetic tattoo session, this medic student was ecstatic. Before I had time to ask how she was the next day, she had already texted to say how she couldn’t stop looking at them! That’s lovely, absolutely great!
The same goes for the Indian girl who had a blush of warmth put through her lips for the second time yesterday, giving her confidence to meet up with relatives back home next week. Cosmetic tattoo gives you so much, and often just when you need it. My client has her magnificent eyes enhanced with eyeliner as well…it gives her a truly exotic look; fitting for her particular career in Australia, and enough to make her family go ‘wow!’
Remember, consultations are free – see you soon.
