daenerys targaryen game of thrones eyebrows

Winter has finally come for Westeros. Which means two things are coming our way next: season 8 of ‘Game of Thrones’ and even more fantastic looks from our favorite and not-so-favorite characters.

To celebrate the new season 8 trailer (and to satiate our need for more content), we’re combining the two loves of our lives: eyebrows and ‘Game of Thrones.’

Without further ado, check out our top 8 favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ eyebrows.

8. Sansa Stark

sansa stark game of thrones eyebrows

Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) has been through a lot, from losing her parents, to being married to two horrible men, to being betrayed by her once-trusted confidante. Lady Stark has grown right before our eyes, and so have her eyebrows.

From season 1’s fragile thin brows, her season 7 arches reflect her changed character: darker, bolder, and sharp enough to kill.

7. Trystane Martell

trystane martell game of thrones eyebrows

Trystane Martell (Toby Sebastian) might not have had much screen time, but his brows sure made enough of an impression on us. Heir to Dorne and son of Prince Oberyn, he was slain by the Sand Sisters as part of Ellaria Sand’s revenge in season 6.

Even though he rests in peace, Trystane and his gorgeous thick black brows will live on in our hearts forever.

6. Melisandre

How Melisandre (Carice van Houten) is still alive is beyond us. The Red Lady has switched allegiances, birthed shadow monsters, and killed children–and yet, somehow, we’ll still be seeing more of the religious fanatic in season 8.

Love her or hate her, she’ll surely get an interesting end on the series. Not that we’re complaining too much; we love the bold red brows (and hair, lips, and gown).

5. Missandei

An audience favorite, Missandei (Nathali Emmanuel) is the perfect second-in-command to Khaleesi (sorry, Tyrion!).

Loyal, dedicated, and a talented diplomat, Missandei is one of the few characters on the show who actually deserves a happy ending. We wouldn’t even object to her sitting on the Iron Throne. Those brows with that hair? Queen.

4. Bran Stark

bran stark game of thrones eyebrows

Sansa is Lady in the North, Arya is a deadly assassin, and Bran Stark is the Three-Eyed Raven. These Stark kids sure had a great career coach.

And Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright)? Kid must have peeped into the future because those brows are way ahead of all his fellow male Westerosi. That, or having three eyes makes for great two eyebrows? Either way, we love his dark, thick arches.

3. Arya Stark

arya stark game of thrones eyebrows

This little murdering machine has one of the most beautiful brows in all of Westeros. Of course, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) prefers compliments on her archery instead of her arches, which we’re completely on-board with.

But, c’mon, look at that color! That perfect line! If she does decide to never marry, then the poor Westerosi nobility totally missed out on killer brow genes.

2. Cersei Lannister

cersei lannister game of thrones eyebrows

Ah. Poor, miserable Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). On one hand, everyone loves her for being so ruthlessly evil. On the other hand, everyone hates her because she is so ruthlessly evil.

Forced to live in a society where men matter more than women, Cersei is relentless in her assertion of her own power. She’s a deadly diplomat and a caring-but-often-cruel mother. Really, if she’s a queen of anything, it’s of contradictions.

Still, it’s impossible not to find her compelling. If only she didn’t destroy everyone in her path…all while raising her perfectly groomed eyebrows at them. Oh, well.

1. Daenerys Targaryen

daenerys targaryen game of thrones eyebrows

Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is in for a surprise this season 8 when she finds out her new boyfriend is actually her nephew…and that he’s the rightful heir to the throne. Yikes.

The Mother of Dragons has come a long way to claim the Iron Throne, so we’re not so sure she’ll be surrendering gracefully to Jon Snow. That, and they have to kill a couple thousand ice zombies first.

Will Dany sit on the Iron Throne? Should she? That debate could go on forever, but one thing’s for sure. Her eyebrows are taking the crown for Best Eyebrows.

faded tattoos opm eraser system

Scars and old, faded tattoos are no match for the Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM) Eraser System.

If you hate how your old tattoos look and want them gone, then the OPM Eraser System is your new best friend.

The OPM Eraser System is painless, leaves no scars, and takes only three to four sessions to get rid of faded tattoos.

Sounds too good to be true? You be the judge!

Here’s everything you need to know about our tattoo eraser system.

What is the OPM Eraser System? How does it work?

The OPM Eraser System works similarly to how microblading or permanent makeup works. It even uses the same equipment as our microblading services!

To get rid of old, discolored, or faded tattoos, microblading artists use a specialized tool to deposit the OPM Eraser into your skin.

The tattoo extraction formula works immediately, pulling the tattoo ink upwards and out of the skin.

A crust then forms over the area. Over the next few weeks, the skin will push out more of the tattoo ink as it heals. The crust will then fall off, taking the ink tattoo ink with it.

The remaining tattoo ink in the skin will also be much closer to the upper layer of the skin, giving your skin an easier time of getting rid of the ink in the next sessions.

Who is eligible for the erasing procedure?

Anyone with Fitzpatrick skin types 1 to 4 is eligible for a tattoo removal session using OPM Eraser System.

We regret that skin types 5 and 6 are disqualified from the treatment for now. Rest assured that OPM is on the lookout for a way to remove tattoos from melanin-rich skin without the risk of scarring.

To inquire about your eligibility, kindly book a free consultation with one of our expert microblading artists.

How many sessions do I need?

It depends on the tattoo.

Tattoos generally fade after 3 or 4 sessions, although older tattoos may require more time.

Your microblading artist will provide a more accurate number of required sessions after seeing your tattoo.

What should I expect during and after the treatment?

  • Fresher-looking tattoo. Expect the possibility that your tattoo will look darker or more vivid after a treatment. This is due to the ink moving closer to the surface of the skin.
  • Itchiness. You may get tempted to scratch or peel the crust following the treatment. Doing so will damage your skin, so prepare distractions for when your skin starts itching.
  • Redness. It’s normal for the treated area to have a slightly red and raised appearance for weeks or months after treatment. This is temporary, as the skin will heal naturally with time.

Does the procedure hurt?

The procedure only involves minimal discomfort, as the topical anesthetic will get rid of any pain.

The anesthesia is applied before the treatment. OPM uses its own OPM Numb Freeze Gel, which contains the following ingredients:

Will the procedure leave scars?

No, the OPM Eraser doesn’t leave scars unless you forcibly remove the crust on the treatment area. It is essential to let the skin heal itself, otherwise the treated area will definitely scar.

How long does the procedure take?

Getting your old, faded tattoo removed with the OPM Eraser only takes 1 and 1/2 hours per session.

How long is the interval between sessions?

Depending on the tattoo and on your skin, you’ll need 12 to 16 weeks in between OPM Eraser sessions.

Your microblading artist will give you a more accurate waiting period once they see your tattoo.


The OPM Eraser System is perfect for anyone who wants a non-laser removal treatment for their old, unwanted, or faded tattoos.

eyelash glue as eyebrow gel

Anyone can find any regular beauty hack on the internet, but it’s not every day that you get makeup advice from the 2018 Miss Universe.

Catriona Gray recently revealed her top beauty tips, including, yes, using eyelash glue as eyebrow gel. Ready to get Miss Universe-worthy eyebrows? Read on to find out more.

When Catriona strutted down the Miss Universe 2018 runway, everybody took notice. How could they not? The gorgeous Filipina in her stunning red dress is a sight to behold. Of course, today, she’s known not just for her world-class beauty, but for her advocacy for children’s rights, as well.

And now, Catriona may just become famous for yet another thing—that’s right, we’re talking about her eyelash glue beauty hack. What’s that all about?

In a video for Vogue, Catriona recreated her Miss Universe coronation night makeup in front of the camera. She goes through everything from her pre-makeup skincare to doing her warm brown smokey eye. And then—lo and behold—she uses eyelash glue to keep her gorgeous eyebrows in place.

We’ve all heard of using glue sticks to hold our brow hairs in place, but lash glue is pretty new to our ears. Catriona described her own eyebrow hairs as long and downward-pointing. For anyone in the same situation, it’s all too familiar how unruly eyebrows can get towards the end of a long day.

Well, if eyelash glue can hold Catriona’s eyebrows through the whole Miss Universe pageant, then it can certainly get us through a day at the office! Here’s how to get the look.

How to use eyelash glue as eyebrow gel

  1. Fill in eyebrows as you usually do. Go through your whole eyebrow makeup routine as you normally would, except you skip the eyebrow gel (obviously). You can fill them in using a pencil or powder as you wish. The lash glue doesn’t damage your eyebrow makeup, so you can safely use whichever products you want.
  2. Put lash glue on! Put a tiny amount of lash glue on the back of your hand. Using a spoolie (a.k.a. a mascara brush), take a little lash glue to your eyebrows. Catriona prefers to comb her lashes with glue using the first swipe before using another few swipes to shape her brows to her liking.

Note that the lash glue dries very quickly, so make sure you’re sure what brow shape you want before you start. Also, don’t be afraid if your eyebrows look a little white from the glue, as the glue dries clear.

Of course, if you want to skip the eyebrow routine…

…you can always check out our offers on eyebrow microblading! We guarantee that you won’t need to fill in your brows anymore, because we’ll do it for you! The best part? We only need to fill them in once every year.

Eyebrow microblading is guaranteed to last up to two years with proper aftercare and maintenance. Say goodbye to long, tiring eyebrow makeup sessions with our organic permanent eyebrow makeup.

Although many people debate the validity of the label “self-made,” two things are certain: (1) Kylie Jenner is the world’s youngest billionaire, and (2) makeup is hella profitable.

Anyone who doesn’t live under a rock knows who 21-year-old Kylie Jenner is–whether it’s for her famously thick lips, her insanely successful makeup line, or her family members and their long-running TV show.

And it can be argued that Kylie’s inescapable presence is the reason she is now the world’s youngest “self-made” billionaire.

In July 2018, Forbes announced that Kylie is close to becoming the world’s youngest billionaire. The title became official in March 2019.

Kylie has now surpassed Facebook creator, Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire when he was 23.

Here’s how the widely profitable Kylie Cosmetics propelled the youngest KarJenner to world history.

Haters gonna hate! Kylie Jenner, the world’s youngest “self-made” billionaire, is here to stay.

thank you @forbes 💜

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

The beginning of Kylie Cosmetics

On November 30, 2015, Kylie Jenner launched the makeup line that would change the beauty landscape.

Partnering with Seed Beauty, Kylie used $250,000 of her own savings to produce the first 15,000 lip kits in 2015–all of which were sold out within a minute.

From there, KarJenner matriarch Kris Jenner brought in e-commerce platform Shopify for sales.

In its first 18 months, Kylie Cosmetics (formerly Kylie Lip Kits) made $420 million in revenue.

Since then, Kylie Comsetics has released several collections, often with the rest of the KarJenners. Kylie has partnered with half-sisters Khloe, Kourtney, and Kim. She also released a collection in partnership with mom Kris.

From thin lips to thick wallets

Kylie was 10 years old when she debuted on reality television show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The show was a success, which meant Kylie grew up in the spotlight from the show’s premiere onwards.

Her insecurity about her own lips being an open secret, Kylie took to overlining her lips to make them seem bigger. She also had lip fillers injected in for a longer-lasting effect.

This insecurity was the inspiration for her debut products, the Kylie Lip Kits.

The billionaire herself has spoken up about the subject, saying that it was “one of the most authentic things [she’s] done in [her] career.”

“I feel like people can tell that I’m super passionate about it,” she said. “It came from an insecurity, and I turned it into something.”

“I was insecure about my lips, and lipstick is what helped me feel confident. And I feel like people could see that it’s authentic to me…and it just worked!”

About her lip fillers, Kylie said she realized one day that the lip liner wasn’t doing it anymore.

“I would overline with lips with lip liner just to create the illusion of bigger lips,” she said in an episode of Life of Kylie. “And then finally I was like, this lip liner isn’t doing it. I ended up getting my lips done.”

The profitability of makeup

What’s curious about Kylie Cosmetics is that it reached its level of success without the use of traditional marketing. Instead, Kylie leveraged her millions of Instagram and Snapchat followers to promote her products.

At the time of its launch, Kylie Cosmetics was a revolutionary marketer. And its ingenuity paid off.

It also helps that makeup is very financially rewarding when it reflects its target market very well.

As Kylie was a beauty icon for many millennials and Gen Z-ers, it was relatively easier for her to sell the authenticity of her makeup line.

It also helped that she often paraded her use of her own products. After all, if it was good enough for Kylie, it was good enough for any one of her fans.

Kylie’s secret to success

While not all of us have millions of followers, a highly influential family, or $250,000 in savings, there’s still something to be learned from Kylie’s approach to business.

For starters, start with what you’re passionate about. Kylie loved makeup and how makeup made her feel. So whether it’s lipstick or mascara, traditional or permanent makeup, embrace what makes you happy and find way to monetize your passion.

Second, have a strong support system. And nurture that relationship.

Kylie’s family was very supportive of her business in the beggining, and that support obviously paid off. But more than that, her many followers and fans were her greatest hype team. And it’s because Kylie knew to give them what they wanted in terms of content.

For many, she was someone to look up to, especially when it came to exercising one’s own agency–and looking good while doing it.

And Kylie delivered.

male celebrities with permanent makeup

Microblading isn’t just for women. These male Hollywood celebs have gone for permanent makeup, as well. Keep reading to find out who they are!

The development of permanent makeup aims to address the growing demand for more time. It’s a busy world, and putting on makeup—for both men and women—definitely eats up time.

Thankfully, microblading cuts down on the time allotted for makeup routines as well as minimizes makeup expenses.

But just how is that possible?

Well, permanent makeup trades your everyday routine schedule for just one procedure a year. The $500 payment also replaces the thousand-dollar makeup bill you accumulate every few years.

For Hollywood celebrities, the decision to get permanent makeup is a no-brainer. Their huge wallets can more than pay for several microblading sessions. Plus, permanent makeup gives them the luxury of stepping out their New York apartments without having to put on any makeup—and still look good for the paparazzi.

Who are these male celebs who pushed their dedication to beauty to the next level?

Check out this list.

Johnny Depp

Johnny depp permanent makeup

Rumors say the Pirates of the Caribbean star had work done to make his eyes look more deep-set. There’s no confirmation for this news, but it certainly seems improbable that anyone would have eyes that look that brooding. Do you think Johnny Depp had his lash line done?

***

John Christopher Depp II (b. 1963) is famous for his work in eccentric films, particularly for his frequent collaboration with director Tim Burton. Their movies Edward Scissorhands (1990), Sleepy Hollow (1999), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), and Alice in Wonderland (2010) were all met with critical and commercial acclaim.

Depp is the world’s third highest-grossing actor, with his film having made over $3.7 billion at the US box office and over $10 billion worldwide.

Nicolas Cage

Nicolas cage permanent makeup

Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage is said to have microbladed eyebrows. Which makes sense, because strong brows have always been a key component of any Hollywood leading actor. Alas, Nic’s permanent brows are only rumors thus far, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s confirmed as true soon.

***

Nicolas Kim Coppola (b. 1964) is a multi-awarded film actor famous for his acting style, which he describes as “Nouveau Shamanic.” The actor received an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a Screen Actors Guild Award for his work in Leaving Las Vegas (1995), after which he began receiving mainstream attention from Hollywood.

His commercially successful films include The Rock (1996), Con Air (1997), City of Angels (1998), National Treasure (200), Ghost Rider (2007), and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018).

Dustin Hoffman

Dustin hoffman permanent makeup

Veteran actor Dustin Hoffman is said to have microbladed brows, as well. If it’s true, then it’s certainly expertly done. Nobody would be able to guess from the star’s photos, films, and appearances. After all, the best permanent makeup is the one you can’t spot!

***

Dustin Lee Hoffman (b. 1937) has been acting for the big screen since 1967, beginning with his role in The Graduate.

His many films include Midnight Cowboy (199), Papillon (1973), All the President’s Men (1976), Kramer vs. Kramer (1979), Tootsie (1982), Rain Man (1988), Hook (1991), The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc (1999), and Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004).

Men shouldn’t shy away from permanent makeup

If you’re a man who’s considering the pros and cons of getting permanent makeup, here are all the reasons you should go for it:

  1. It makes you feel good about yourself. Where’s the shame in wanting to look like a better version of yourself, right? If permanent makeup will give you a much-needed confidence boost, then you shouldn’t shy away from it.
  2. You probably need it. As we grow older, our lips become more dull, and our eyebrows get heavier towards the outer edges. That, and men’s hairlines tend to recede. If there are easy remedies for these problems, then why shouldn’t you take them? Microblading could solve all these and more.

One thing every dedicated pet owner have in common is this: they’re always thinking of their furbabies.

In some weird way, it’s kind of like having your own child (no offense, moms!). And why is that?

One: because you’re constantly wondering where they are and what they’re doing.

Two: when making plans, you consider if you’ll be home in time to feed them and worry that they’re going to be too cooped up at home.

Three: if you’re planning a trip somewhere, you go in search for the best pet-sitting service there is.

Four: You spend so much money on them. Like, so so much money.

It’s something non-pet owners may never understand until they get a furbaby of their own. Which is why not everyone will get this, but the truth is: if you’re getting microblading, you need to consider how it will affect your pets, too.

Microblading aftercare affects pets

microblading for pet ownersGetting microblading itself is hassle-free. You go to the microblading clinic. You consult with a microblading artist. Then, you lie down for an hour and get brand new brows.

Or lips. Or scalp, areola, or lash line. It’s microblading. The possibilities are endless (with one exception).

However, there is the matter of aftercare.

Aftercare, as the name suggests, means you care for the area post-microblading. This is to avoid the possibility of infection and to ensure the results look just as you desire.

And there will be adjustments in your life for a month or so after your permanent makeup procedure—which means your beloved pet will need to adjust a bit, too.

Skip to the do’s and don’ts of microblading for pet owners »

Why do I need aftercare?

At the end of the day, microblading really is just a tattoo technique. So, like with other tattoos, you need to nurse your skin a bit after microblading, so it can make a full recovery.

To perform microblading, artists use a specialized microblading tool that will (1) make tiny incisions in your skin and (2) deposit ink pigments in your skin.

Read more: What microblading is for: Permanent makeup, explained

As you can imagine, this can stress out the treated area for quite some time afterward. But with proper aftercare, you can help your skin transition from sore to super-looking.

Wait—is microblading even safe?

It is. Most states have regulations concerning microblading, so a certified microblading clinic will be a safe bet for your needs.

Of course, all cosmetic procedures (and tattoos) still carry risk with them. Infection is the biggest risk in particular, followed by scarring.

That’s why it’s essential that you find a microblading clinic with a stellar reputation. Not only will reputable microblading clinics have skilled artists, but they also ensure proper sanitation and sterilization of tools. After all, they’re looking after their brand name.

You should also consider getting organic microblading, which is basically just microblading using organic ink pigments. Organic ink is quicker to heal and carries no harmful chemicals. It also comes in a wide variety of colors, so anyone can get it and look good.

The essential guide to microblading for pet owners

microblading for pet owners

To be clear, microblading does not pose a risk to your pets. It’s more that your pets unwittingly pose a risk to your microblading.

If you’re a pet owner who’s planning on getting permanent makeup, you need to plan ahead for the both of you.

Microblading aftercare for pet owners

The basic principle for aftercare is this: no contact.

That means, for 4 to 6 weeks, you can’t expose the treated area to:

  • Human skin, especially if dirty
  • Animal fur
  • Too much sunlight
  • Water
  • Any chemicals like lotion, makeup, and sunscreen

Additionally, this is what you can expect to happen during the healing period:

  • Day 1. The treated area looks perfect, although the color will appear bolder than promised.
  • Days 2 to 4. The treated area looks darker, sharper, and more intense than expected.
  • Days 5 to 8. The treated area begins flaking and scabbing. Do not pick at the flakes and scabs!
  • Days 9 to 13. The treated area looks waxy, and colors look unsaturated or dull.
  • Day 14 onwards. The color of the treated area now appears normal, evened out, and smooth. Note, however, that the skin hasn’t completely healed yet at this point.
  • Day 30: The skin has healed completely and is ready to return to its regular skin care routine.

Here’s a list of tips that will guide you as your skin heals.

Don’t:

  1. Sleep next to Max or Mr. Meowington. If you cuddle next to your pets, then some sacrifice is required. To avoid any accidental touching of the area, avoid sleeping somewhere your pets can reach you.
  2. Give them a bath. There will be increased risk of getting water, shampoo, or soap near the treated area. That, and fur might end up touching your new brows or lips.
  3. Go on a walk. If you need to work out, you should do it indoors or at a gym. Sunlight can negatively affect the treated area. Avoid getting sweat on the area, as well.
  4. Cuddle. Sounds lonely, we know, but you need to avoid any fur getting near the area. Don’t hug or kiss your pets for now (sorry!).

Do:

  1. Get the pets a pet bed. Just for a month or so. Make sure the bed is also located outside of your bedroom.
  2. Go to the groomers. There’s certainly some satisfaction to be had from giving pets a bath. However, for the time being, you should take the furry ones to a groomee so you don’t jeopardize your microbladed area.
  3. Find a dog walker beforehand. You doggos need exercise. And since you’ll be out of commission for a while, you need to find someone to sub for you.
  4. Change the sheets after your procedure. Make sure any trace of fur or beauty products is gone. Otherwise, they might come in contact with the area.
  5. Watch out for red flags. Immediately contact your microblading artist if you spot or experience any of the following:
  6. Fever
  7. Prolonged redness in the area
  8. Prolonged swelling or tenderness in the area
  9. A foul green or yellow discharge

Other aftercare reminders

Now that we’ve got the pet-related instructions taken care of, here are other crucial guidelines for your aftercare:

  • Hands off. Avoid touching the area with your hands. Don’t let anyone else touch it with theirs, either.
  • Hoard blotting paper. If you have oily skin, blot your microbladed eyebrows so they don’t come in contact with your face’s natural oils.
  • Chemical ban. Don’t apply any makeup, lotion, or any other product on the area.
  • Waterproof-proofed. Do not use waterproof mascara for 30 days after microblading eyeliner on.
  • The cold never bothered me anyway. Apply cold compress on your microbladed eyeliner or lip to alleviate discomfort or pain. You can also use ice water twice or thrice a day to loosen any forming crusts on the lip.
  • Nerds unite. Refrain from using contact lenses as your microbladed eyeliner heals. Use glasses instead.
  • Swish swish. Use mouthwash after brushing your teeth. This is to kill any germs before they reach your microbladed lips.
  • Straws up. To avoid water touching your microbladed lips, use a straw for the next month or so.
  • One drink too many. Avoid excessive alcohol consumption, as alcohol can slow down the healing process.
  • Dull diet. Refrain from eating food that is too spicy. Spicy food can slow down your healing process significantly.
  • Delay the derma. Avoid any cosmetic treatments during the healing period, like fillers, laser, and chemical peels.
  • The secret ingredient. Don’t use products that contain Retin-A or Glycolic Acid, as these can also slow down the healing process.

IMPORTANT: Don’t skip your touch-ups

Similar to all other tattoos, microblading can fade with time. Touch-ups are essential to maintain your desired look, so they’re considered part of your (extended) aftercare.

Your microblading artist will prescribe required touchups, but generally, you can expect them to happen on:

  • A few weeks after the initial procedure
  • 2 or 3 months after the initial procedure
  • Annually after the initial procedure

Of course, touchups depend on how well your skin takes to the ink pigment and how well you perform the recommended aftercare.

It may seem a little tiresome to think about, but in truth, you’re saving up on tons of time and money. Think about how long putting on your brows takes you—and how much product you consume. Microblading is an investment, yes, but it’s one that actually pays off.

Aftercare can be easy

With this guide, you can focus on helping your skin heal. Keep this article bookmarked, so you have an easy reference to visit from time to time!

Organic Permanent Makeup is a permanent makeup clinic. We’re in the business of selling microblading services. And we’re here to tell you: do not get an under eye tattoo.

The beauty industry envisioned and developed permanent makeup to cut down on beauty routines. It’s goal is to help people save time and money in the long run. There’s permanent makeup for your brows, lips, lash line, scalp, and even for your areola.

We don’t shy away from treating sensitive areas—but only as long as they’re safe. And guess what dermatologists have to say about under eye tattooing?

That’s right. Not safe.

Wait…under eye tattoos?

It’s not really that surprising. Eye bags have always been viewed as unattractive. They’re partly the reason behind the popularity of concealers, and covering them up is always part of any makeup tutorial.

Under eye tattoos aim to eliminate that step in the routine. Similar to other permanent makeup services, under eye tattoos involve pigment being inserted into the skin using specialized tools.

There is one difference, though. When the beauty industry says “permanent makeup,” it usually means semi-permanent. That means the finished product lasts only up to two years before a touch-up session becomes due.

The reason behind this is that these pigments are safer to use on sensitive areas. Semi-permanent pigment also allow you to make adjustments or changes to your look every few years, as beauty trends are ever-evolving.

Under eye tattoos, on the other hand, use actual permanent makeup.

The rise of under eye tattoos

The procedure is pioneered by Brazilian tattoo artist Rodolpho Torres. He specializes in camouflaging skin ailments using ink pigments, according to Glamour Magazine UK.

Rodolpho explained to Spa + Clinic Australia how he uses a specialized device to detect a client’s skin tone, making sure to customize the ink to match the client’s skin perfectly.

“It’s not micro pigmentation; it’s a tattoo,” he said. “You can live a normal life and expose it to sunlight, knowing that your skin will become stained, because the tattoo pigments approved by Anvisa give us this security.”

Since the procedure uses permanent pigments, you’ll only need one session.

It definitely looks impressive. For people who have suffered bullying or self-esteem issues because of their under eye bags, there’s certainly an appeal.

Dermatologists aren’t convinced, however

Speaking with Shape Magazine, leading New York dermatologist Lance Brown, M.D., said, “No non-medical personnel should be touching that area of your eyes—especially with a sharp instrument.”

“Under the eye, you need to be very cautious—you can cause an infection around the eyelid. Or a sty or cyst could grow around the hair follicles,” he added.

Other permanent makeup artists aren’t buying it, either. Tracie Giles of Tracie Giles Bespoke Permanent Makeup told MetroUK:

“You cannot tattoo to conceal dark circles under the eyes. The reason is because it never works and can literally ruin a face. More likely it will end up on a case of ‘Botched’ on TV.”

“You would be covering the underneath of the eyes with an opaque chalky pigment, which is permanent in the skin and will never fade. Over time, the opaque covering—even if applied diluted or with a [pixelation] effect—rises in the skin and discolors rather like sour cream.”

Tracie explains that under eye tattoos will likely end up a regret in the long-term, given how difficult, if not impossible, they are to remove.

Laser removal would make the pigment go black, plus it would be extremely high risk to even attempt removal so close to the eyes, she said. There’s always a risk of blinding the patient.

“My personal opinion is that this treatment should absolutely be avoided,” Tracie said. “No reputable practitioner would ever undertake this.”

There are other risks, too

As of right now, it seems not a lot of microblading clinics have adapted the practice. While that’s good news, it’s not a guarantee that they won’t.

Like how most beauty trends grow, smaller and less reputable clinics will begin offering under eye tattooing once the popular ones do. It’s a given in the beauty and fashion world—like how retail stores look to fashion shows for cues on their next releases.

Fortunately, there’s also not a big social media storm surrounding under eye tattooing, and no celebrity has gone public about getting an under eye tattoo yet.

Again, the key word is yet. It’s possible that the world will take notice soon. And when it does, there will be increased risk that people will get this procedure without doing proper research.

But if you insist…

under eye tattoo

Of course, it’s well within your rights to decide to get the procedure. After all, it is a tattoo; it just happens to be located under your eyes.

For now, however, we ask everyone to be careful about where they’re getting under eye tattoos. After all, there’s no proof yet of what these tattoos look like after five or more years. Here are some reminders to keep mind:

  • Don’t underspend. Research how much a typical procedure costs, so you know you’re paying the correct amount. If you’re spending way less than the industry standard, ask yourself: what are they compromising that they can afford lower rates?
  • Find a reputable clinic. Don’t go to a local tattoo store and demand to have your under eye circles tattooed over. It’s likely that they don’t have the equipment or the pigment colors you need. Make sure to find a certified, if not licensed, clinic to give you your under eye tattoo.
  • Ask for before and afters. If possible, ask for a photo of the client years after the procedure was done. This will give you an idea of what to expect in the long run.
  • Read client reviews. Are the clients raving about this clinic? Are they warning you to avoid a certain technician and recommending another? While you don’t have to treat these reviews as law, you can use them as warnings and guides for your tattoo journey.
  • Get insurance if possible. There’s no harm in forward thinking. When there’s a possibility of a procedure backfiring, you’ll want your best backup plan in place.

However, the truth is: clients aren’t to blame. While under eye tattooing is not yet deemed safe, it’s in the public’s best interest if other microblading clinics don’t offer this procedure. The more clinics offer this service, the more likely people will think it’s safe when it’s not.
And even if an individual really wants the procedure, if not a single clinic in her area offered the service, then that’s a real deterrent to that person getting an under eye tattoo.

Why we get dark circles under our eyes

Tattooing, like using concealer, doesn’t really “fix” our under eye circles. They’re just covering up the darkness—and we don’t know how exactly the skin will react, especially as it ages. So, let’s try to understand how under eye circles actually work.

Dark under eye circles are common, but they’re especially common for people who are elderly, from non-white ethnic groups, and have a genetic predisposition for under eye circles.

There are several factors that contribute to dark circles, namely:

  1. Fatigue. Both oversleeping and extreme fatigue can cause darker under eye circles. Lack of sleep will also cause skin to become dull and pale, letting dark tissues and blood vessels under the area become more visible.
  2. Age. The older we get, the thinner our skin becomes and the more our skin loses the fat and collagen needed to keep it elastic. As these happen, dark blood vessels under the skin will become more prominent.
  3. Eye strain. Too much screen time can strain the eyes and will cause blood vessels around the eyes to enlarge. Eye strain can make the surrounding skin darken.
  4. Allergies. Allergic reactions involve the release of histamines, which then causes the blood vessels to enlarge and become more visible under the skin.
  5. Dehydration. When a person is dehydrated, the skin underneath the eyes will look sunken. Without the proper amount of water, that area will therefore darken due to the skin’s proximity to the bone underneath.
  6. Sun overexposure. Overexposure will trigger an overproduction of melanin, which can cause the area under the skin to darken.
  7. Genetics. Dark under eye areas may be inherited. Other medical conditions like thyroid disease can also result in dark under eye circles.

Remedying dark under eye circles

under eye tattooing

There’s no “cure” for under eye circles, because they’re not really a disease or a condition. In fact, they’re quite normal.

Of course, for most of us, concealer does the job well enough. However, if you choose to find a solution for dark under eye circles, here are some medical treatments available that you can try:

  • chemical peels
  • laser surgery
  • tissue fillers
  • fat removal

Healthline recommends discussing your options with a doctor before choosing any of these procedures. Invasive procedures can be painful and will take a long time to heal.

There are also home treatments that can provide temporary solutions:

  • applying cold tea bags
  • sleeping with the head elevated to avoid fluid pooling in the area
  • applying cold compress
  • getting extra sleep

Bottom line: Don’t risk it

Under eye tattooing has genuinely nice intentions.However, as long as it isn’t vetted by dermatologists in the US, it’s best not to take a chance.

The under eye area is extremely sensitive—and it is very, very close to your eyes. A small mistake could be painful, if not life-threatening.

Our best advice? Don’t get an under eye tattoo. Or, at least, not yet. Wait until it’s been given the green light, and don’t settle for anything less.

For many of us adults, the thought of losing our hair is terrifying. Unimaginable, even. Most of us would resort to hair implants, wigs, or microblading. Maybe even all three.

But what one nine-year-old child can teach us is that there should be no shame in hair loss. In fact, it’s an opportunity to educate the world.

Living with alopecia

For nine-year-old Jenna Gathercole, neither her chronic hair loss nor the subsequent bullying she experienced dampened her spirit.

The fourth grader spoke out at her school in Viera, Florida on February 5 and explained the disease to her classmates.

“Hi, my name is Jenna, and I have something to share with you. This is my story of alopecia,” began her speech at Viera Charter School.

“I wanted to let people know what was going on, so they wouldn’t bully others or me,” she explained. “It’s not my fault, and there’s something they should know about.”

“I have an auto-immune disorder. It’s called alopecia. It’s causing my hair to fall out,” she said. “When I comb my hair, it tends to fall out a lot.”

Alopecia (also known as spot baldness) is a rare disease, and one that has no known cure. It’s also possible to lose either small or large amounts of hair, as well as only on the head (alopecia areata) or on the entire body (alopecia areata universalis).

Taking a stand against bullying

Not understanding her situation, Jenna’s classmates used to make fun of her hair. One of them even called her a boy, she said.

As a result, Jenna decided to give them a glimpse of what she and other people living with alopecia go through. Armed with a PowerPoint presentation she made herself, Jenna bravely led the school assembly with her speech.

“I want them to know I’m still me. I’m okay, and [just] because this is happening to me or anyone else, it’s not okay to bully,” Jenna said of her decision to explain her condition.

She said that the most frequent questions she hears are what causes alopecia, what the cure is, and whether or not it’s contagious.

Others ask her if she will one day go completely bald. Jenna said that she might and that she’s not yet sure if she will wear a wig.

After her speech, Jenna’s classmates pledged to be kind, reports Florida Today. They also pledged to not bully others and to intervene if they see any instance of bullying.

“If I hear negative talk, I will not be a bystander,” the pledge goes. “I will not be a bystander.”

Jenna pays her doctor and dermatologist a visit every three months. She also uses a combination of creams, oils, and steroids to try and grow her hair back.

Jenna’s parents are very supportive and actually encouraged her to share her story.

“I am so incredibly proud of her,” mother Karen Gathercole told WESH.

Raising awareness and breeding tolerance

Brave acts like Jenna’s go a long way in educating people about alopecia. And the good news is she’s not alone.

Just this month, a group of third graders shaved their heads in support of a classmate living with alopecia.

Luke Nelson, 8, of Edmond, Oklahoma, started losing his hair in fall of 2018. It started with a patch of his eyebrow but soon spread to the side of his head.

“By Christmas, he had completely lost all his hair,” mom Susan Nelson told PEOPLE.

“For a little 8-year-old to lose his hair, of course, it was hard,” she said. “Once he lost all of his hair, he immediately put a hat on, and he kind of hid behind his hat.”

Luke’s little brother Sam, 7, decided to have his head shaved after Luke had to shave his. Their dad followed suit, as well.

But they weren’t the only ones.

Strengthening bonds

After Christmas break, Luke’s classmates at Oklahoma Christian School began looking for a way to cheer him up.

On Jan. 19, fourteen boys and their parents flocked to Sports Clips Haircuts in Edmond. The fourteen boys got their heads shaved.

https://facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10217967565162292&id=1280001651

It was a “really fun hair-shaving celebration,” described Susan.

“As soon as the haircuts started, Luke ripped off his hat, and he has walked around with this confidence and this swagger,” she shared.

“It made me feel very good,” Luke said about his classmates’ grand gesture. “I feel more confident. I can just be myself.”

He added, “I think it’s important to share my story to help all those other kids that feel different.”

Looking forward, embracing reality

For kids living with alopecia, what matters is letting them feel confident and loved. Whether they decide to embrace their bald, bold new look or opt for a wig, what matters is they have support.

Alopecia is a lifelong condition. Hopefully, science can find a cure for alopecia when the kids grow up. But, either way, people with alopecia should feel like they can look however they want to look—free of judgment and with the support of their family and friends.

When faced with career options in the beauty industry, not many people think to consider microblading. And yet it’s the most untapped and undiscovered niche in the market.

Permanent makeup is a rising beauty trend, as more and more women find themselves with hectic schedules.

Busy days spell lesser time for their family, friends, and selves. With permanent makeup, women can cut their daily routine in half, giving them more time to sleep in, cuddle with their husbands, or prepare the kids’ breakfast.

With the obvious advantage of permanent makeup over traditional makeup, why hasn’t it become an overnight sensation? A top Twitter trend? The answer is simple:

There aren’t enough permanent makeup artists to go around.

And this is where you can come in.

The need for permanent makeup artists

Permanent makeup allows women to take control of their lives.

It’s an unescapable fact that the business world expects us to look our best. So does social media, our friend groups, and even ourselves. The time and money we devote to makeup can sometimes be too embarrassing to measure—that’s how much importance we give our beauty routines.

With permanent makeup, however, there’s no need to slave in front of a mirror on a daily basis. Women simply need to wait one hour every two years—that’s right: one hour.

Because one hour is all it takes to get your eyebrows done permanently. One hour is all it takes to get your lip contoured permanently. One hour is all it takes to be in control of your life.

Why aren’t there enough permanent makeup artists?

Permanent makeup, unlike other beauty services like manicures and haircuts, require in-depth training.

The dedication needed to learn permanent makeup can be seen as too much of a hassle, especially for beauty professionals who just want a quick buck.

However, what many people don’t realize is that permanent makeup pays. And it pays very, very well.

In fact, one permanent makeup procedure a week can make you more money than several haircuts performed in a day. Here’s a handy comparison chart:

Service 1 procedure per week 2 procedures per week 3 procedures per week 4 procedures per week 10 procedures per week
Eyebrows
$500
$500 $1,000 $1,500 $2,000 $5,000
Full lip
$750
$750 $1,500 $2,250 $3,000 $7,500
Eyeliner
$500
$500 $1,000 $1,500 $2,000 $5,000
Total $1,750 $3,500 $5,250 $7,000 $17,000
Annual $91,000 $182,000 $273,000 $364,000 $884,000

Training for permanent makeup doesn’t just allow you to make more money than other beauty professionals. It also inducts you into a fun, supportive, and loving community. There aren’t many of us—so, we tend to stick together. We form meaningful friendships because we share the same meaningful work.

Now that we’ve established the need for permanent makeup artists, let’s look into how you can join us in our quest for permanent beauty.

The need for organic microblading

Microblading is a specific form of permanent makeup. This procedure involves creating tiny incisions on the client’s skin using a microblading tool. The tool deposits colored pigments into the skin, allowing you to fill in eyebrows, lips, lash lines, and even areolas. This technique is ideal for these small areas of the body, because the fine lines help the pigments blend seamlessly into the skin.

For a clearer idea of the microblading process, check out this short video clip:

Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM) focuses on microblading, because this procedure readily addresses the most common beauty concerns women have today. The popularity of Instagram brows and Kardashian-esque lips means women are deeply invested in their own lips and arches.
Here’s a full list of microblading procedures offered at OPM:

  • Eyebrow microblading
  • Ombre eyebrow microblading
  • Lip contouring
  • Lash enhancement
  • Scalp micropigmentation
  • Areola reconstruction and restoration
  • Tattoo correction and removal

If you’re wondering if all our procedures live up to our brand name, let us assure you that they certainly do. All our procedures involve only organic pigments. These food- and mineral-based pigments have the following benefits:

  • Compatibility with all skin types
  • Zero side effects
  • Lasting power of up to two years
  • Zero downtime
  • No chances of discoloration (e.g. blue eyebrows)

Additionally, our pigments don’t use metals like traditional microblading pigments. So, organic microblading isn’t just healthier for the client; it’s also better for the environment.

When you become an organic microblading artist, you’ll be forwarding the advocacy of beauty for all and a safer planet for everyone.

The need for world-class permanent makeup training

The reason we bring up organic microblading at OPM is this: we’re the best in the business. If you want to become a microblading artist, then you’ve come to the right place.

Our founder, Lorine Mikhaeil, actually pioneered the use of organic microblading. She saw how microblading was losing popularity because of health and safety concerns.

And she decided that the microblading horror stories had to stop.

With the birth of organic microblading came the founding of our beauty clinic—and our academy.

You see, Lorine wasn’t content with just serving safe and permanent beauty. She wanted to spread her advocacy across the country. The OPM Academy trains microblading enthusiasts and beauty professionals to have the same standards as OPM does. We want you to have a craft you’re proud of and a livelihood that will give you a comfortable life.

Training at OPM allows you to:

  • Learn the basics and techniques of microblading from the pioneer of the field herself
  • Observe and learn from microblading experts as they work on clients
  • Work on dummies and clients alike under the supervision of microblading expert
  • Receive feedback on your work from experts in the field
  • Have access to our resources on microblading
  • Learn how to price and market your microblading services

Training with OPM

Years of teaching microblading beginners have allowed us to perfect our technique. We’ve broken down the teaching process into three crucial steps:

Step one. Our expert artists demonstrate microblading techniques. Students get to observe and ask questions, so they can see first-hand what microblading entails. Our artists then guide you as you attempt your first strokes on practice sheets of paper.

Step two. After learning comes practice. Students are required to accomplish 150 to 200 hours of practice, so the strokes required almost become muscle memory. This second step involves instructional videos and weekly assignments, all under the supervision of OPM artist.;

Step three. OPM Academy is the only microblading learning institution that lets you practice on real people. In this step, students take on a client from start to finish. They learn how to deal with client inquiries, choose the right clientele for them, and upsell their services so they can make a sizable income.

Our students think we’re the best

Check out their reviews:

“[Lorine’s] course is a no-nonsense kind of course. Lorine will tell you if you suck, and she will not hold back if you need to work on something. It’s called honesty. She isn’t sugarcoating things for you. That itself is what makes it an amazing course. Things are not going to get any easier when you leave and screw up someone’s face…IT’S PERMANENT! Take the criticism and CORRECT YOUR MISTAKES!
Having a bunch of crybaby, sort of good, perm makeup artists is not what she’s striving for. It’s her business and her brand, and it’s about time someone raises student standards so that people can go to someone they can trust. “

— Muffin S. of Lakeforest, CA

“OPM is [a] great academy. All the instructors are great. Nancy and Joy really explained everything in detail. Loraine seems really strict, but it’s really great for the students to push them towards perfection. I loved them all. Still going to practice at home, and I am sure that after coming to the advanced class, I will be totally confident in working with my clients. Thank you all.”

— Sweta M. of Anaheim, CA

Sometimes, the beauty world can feel unwelcoming for aspiring artists. It’s intimidating, having to compete with big names in a big industry. Lucky for us, we work in a world that’s constantly evolving. In this article, we talk about why organic microblading is the future of the beauty industry—and how you can get a headstart.

What microblading is all about

Microblading, in essence, is tattooing. You create tiny incisions on the skin, depositing colored pigments that can last up to two years. It’s part of the permanent makeup movement that’s been taking the world by storm.

The small incisions required in microblading make it perfect for eyebrows, the lips, the scalp, and even the areola. Microblading tools are specifically designed in a way that allows for tiny, precise strokes.

Check out this 2-minute video to get an idea of how it’s done:

Microblading is not, in any way, new. In fact, the practice started in ancient Japan. The beauty industry acknowledges the Japanese tattooing technique called tebori as an early inspiration for microblading.

The practice grew popular in the West as the desire to look beautiful clashed with the increasingly limited amount of time for getting ready in the morning. Working moms, college students, celebrities, and every woman with a tight schedule stand to benefit from permanent makeup.

The demand for permanent makeup, therefore, is only bound to grow as the demand for longer work hours rises.

The advantages of becoming a microblading artist

Breaking through in the beauty industry is a challenge—but a rewarding one. Every big brand we know today started small, too. Although, of course, it helps when your market is untapped and unexplored.

Enter microblading.

The demand for permanent makeup is high, but the supply is low.

After all, there are significantly fewer microblading artists than there are hairdressers, makeup artists, waxing technicians, and nail technicians. You have fewer competitors—a strategically placed clinic means you’ll probably have the permanent makeup market all to yourself.

And while that in itself is reason to consider microblading as a livelihood, that’s not all there is to it.

Here are four other advantages of becoming a microblading artist.

1. You can make a better living

If you’re already part of the beauty industry but wanting to switch lanes, consider microblading. Our research shows that microblading artists make more than other beauty technicians.

Here’s a comparison table:

Service 1 procedure per week 2 procedures per week 3 procedures per week 4 procedures per week 10 procedures per week
Eyebrows
$500
$500 $1,000 $1,500 $2,000 $5,000
Full lip
$750
$750 $1,500 $2,250 $3,000 $7,500
Eyeliner
$500
$500 $1,000 $1,500 $2,000 $5,000
Total $1,750 $3,500 $5,250 $7,000 $17,000
Annual $91,000 $182,000 $273,000 $364,000 $884,000

Even if you perform only one procedure a week, you could still make more than our peers in the industry.

2. You can help transform lives

Like all beauty procedures, microblading can do wonders for a person’s self-esteem and self-confidence.

In fact, microblading is a popular procedure among survivors of cancer, alopecia, and other conditions.

Areola reconstruction can give breast cancer survivors comfort in light of their operations. Scalp micropigmentation is an ideal option for people suffering from hair loss.

When you become a microblading artist, you can rest assured that you’re making a difference.

3. You’ll be part of a great community

Enrolling in a microblading class is a surefire way of making friends with your fellow microblading enthusiasts. And since there’s not a lot of us around, it’s easy to stay in touch and offer support to each other—even when we don’t work in the same microblading clinics!

4. You’ll have a craft you’re proud of

Imagine a job that’s fulfilling, has a great support community, and pays well. The combination of these three factors is what makes microblading an excellent career option.

Having a career you’re proud of is essential; in fact, experts say that a meaningful career is more important than happiness.

Thinking ahead, permanent makeup is also an excellent path because microblading is a teachable skill. And as more and more people pay attention to microblading, your skills will become more valuable because you can teach them to excel in this field.

Additionally, a theory in psychosocial development posits that humans need to feel like they’re making a mark on the world, particularly in the midlife stages of their life. We reach a point where we yearn to nurture, whether it’s raising a child or showing the ropes to a subordinate at your office.

In short: no matter how many years you put on, microblading will leave you feeling fulfilled—whether it’s by helping someone regain their confidence or by teaching an enthusiastic student your skills.

Why organic microblading is the future of the beauty industry

Establishing yourself as a reliable and trustworthy microblading artist means giving clients the best possible experience there is. It’s also important in this day and age for your business to have a stand on an issue, which will show clients that you’re not just in it for the money, that you have something essential to contribute to society.

Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM) is a believer of environment preservation and natural beauty. We’d like to try and convince you to believe in our advocacy, too.

So, without further ado, here’s why organic microblading is the future of the beauty industry.

Simply put, organic microblading is safer and longer-lasting than non-organic microblading.

Organic microblading uses food- and mineral-based pigments for microblading. Using 100% natural pigments reduces the risk of skin complications and allergic reactions. It also helps the environment by lessening the need for mining, since non-organic microblading uses metal-based pigments.

Traditional microblading often results in the unsightly fading of color, hence the occasional blue or orange eyebrows you encounter on the street. Organic microblading yields no such results.

Organic microblading also has the following benefits:

  • Zero downtime
  • Zero side-effects
  • Compatibility with all skin types
  • Ability to last up to two years with proper maintenance

Why study with OPM

If you’re interested in studying organic microblading, then might as well study with the best.

OPM founder Lorine Mikhaeil is a pioneer in the industry. She was the first to create organic pigments for microblading. Best of all? She also teaches how to microblade at our very own OPM Academy.

“I absolutely love Lorine and the OPM academy. There is no match for the extensive education you will receive for microblading and permanent makeup. After researching many permanent makeup companies, I was so pleased to find a company that focuses on science-based information while training and a class that is more than a week long.”
