Semi-Permanent Glow and Coverage through BB Glow

BB Cream, Meet BB Glow!

When most younger women think of “permanent makeup” they envision the old style of unattractive lip color, eye liner, and shadow they will have to succumb to for the rest of their life. But permanent makeup has made great strides in the last decade, and we have seen results to be proven as natural and flawless- making us feel our most beautiful! And BB Glow is showing the world that permanent makeup is the best invention yet.

What is a BB Glow Treatment?

BB Glow is better described as semi-permanent foundation. Basically, the look you see when you put on BB cream is what this BB Glow Facial promises. The process is quite simple. It involves nano needling a pigmented vitamin serum into the skin. The pigment results in a glow that comes through the top layers of the skin, similar to what BB cream does on top of the skin. The results are natural and subtle. Most people who receive this treatment report they are usually the only ones who notice because it never looks caked or dull like foundation becomes throughout the day (especially in our south florida humidity!) The comments they receive from others are along the lines of, “You seem to be glowing lately!” or “Your face looks flawless!” The results last as long as a year, but some people start to see a decrease in appearance of the serum after about 6 months. Treatment consists of two-four sessions depending on your skin, for optimal results. What is important to know about the BB Glow Facial is that it does not change the color of your skin- It simply places small pigments of color into the skin to change the color that is shown on the face. The actual skin is the same color.

Who gets BB Glow?

Any and Every one who wants to cover imperfections on their face, gets the BB Glow treatment here at New Image Beauty Bar! Those with hyper-pigmentation, rosacea, blemishes and dark under-eye circles are especially excited about this new advancement. Those with acne really love this treatment because it’s a great way to reduce the appearance of the blemishes on the skin without clogging pores. When the serum is placed, the skin absorbs it rather than it sitting on top of and inside the pores. It evens out the skin tone, so the redness of pimples is much less noticeable.

What to Know- Permanent Makeup Terminology

Permanent Makeup. Sounds great. Its popularity has grown the past few years although it has been around for decades.  What once seemed a little sketchy is now widely available (but may still be sketchy, so choose your artist wisely). The benefits of permanent makeup can be numerous when you know the facts. A little exploration will save you time, money and potential injury. The world of permanent makeup does not have a standardized system of terminology. Many practitioners use whatever jargon they like, as there is little regulation. As a consumer, it is important to do research beforehand.  Ask to see a portfolio, as well as a Health Department Certificate of Inspection and the practitioner’s current license issued by the State Boards. Inquire specifically about the equipment, beautician’s training, years of permanent makeup experience and the number of procedures performed. Get referrals and read reviews. To help you get started, we’ve compiled a list of the key terminology to enable you to cut through the marketing blather and navigate this often-confusing niche. Permanent Makeup.  A cosmetic technique which employs tattoos (permanent pigmentation of the dermis (or skin) to produce designs that resemble makeupThis is the most common term used in the USA. Elsewhere, it is referred to as Semi-Permanent, which is a more accurate term because there is no such thing as permanent makeup as it all eventually fades. The term “semi-permanent” is becoming more widely used — as newcomers in an overcrowded field attempt to stand out. The deeper the inks are put into the skin, the longer it will last – sometimes up to a lifetime same as with other tattoos. It is just a question of how long it lasts and whether it morphs into unusual colors.  Lasting longer is not better; our faces age and styles change, over time. There is an assortment of permanent makeup equipment; Handheld tools range from small razor-like blades (microblading) to standard electric tattoo machines and inks which, along with the technician’s skill and experience, can create a wide range of results. Side effects can range from the unpleasant to the downright dangerous. A harsh and unnatural look. Excessive pain.  Colors morphing into unsightly shades of blue and green.  Bleeding, bruising and scarring. Cosmetic Tattooing.  Generally, the same as above specifically for eyebrows, which is the most popular area for permanent makeup. Medical Tattooing. Same as permanent makeup – but used to cover scars, cover vitiligo or create areolas in a form of skin-deep cosmetic reconstruction. Microblading.  A manual tattoo made with a handheld tool that looks like a slender Exacto knife but instead has tiny blades at the tip.  The blades make small incisions in the skin with the tool’s tip which has been dipped in pigment. 3D Eyebrows. Generally, same as microblading. Individual hairs are cut and inked into the skin producing an array of results based on equipment, product and technician expertise. Shaded Eyebrow. A makeup-look for the brow, shaded in with pigment to create fuller, darker, defined eyebrows. Feathering. Same as 3D Eyebrows (or microblading). Hair Strokes. Another term used for 3D Eyebrows, feathering and micro blading.  There is no shading involved, just application of pigment onto the skin. With Alicia Shapira here at New Image Beauty Bar, individual hairs are precisely layered on the skin, creating a completely natural look. Brows can be reshaped, darkened or thickened. Brows can even be created entirely where there previously was no hair at all.  Alicia is trained and certified to work on the eyebrows, eyeliner, lips, and scalp as well as on the body. About 25% of all Alicia’s work is performed to correct or fix the botched or poor-quality work from cheaper, old technologies like permanent tattooing or microblading from those artists who have little to no training performing permanent makeup procedures at lower cost to get your business.

Eyebrows that withstand the test of time

If you’re interested in staying on-trend for the holiday season and looking awesome, then read on! This blog will discuss the eyebrow trends of 2017, and how you can easily take care of them and look your best. 2017 has been all about big, bold, and beautiful eyebrows. If you’re interested in getting incredible brows and no longer worry about having to fill them in every morning, don’t hesitate to contact Alicia here at New Image Beauty Bar! She can create the perfect eyebrow shape which frames your facial structure. Your brows will be so amazing that strangers will be complimenting you on a daily basis! So what are you waiting for? Contact Alicia and come in for an appointment today! Big, Natural Brows A trend that will never go out of style, according to beauty and fashion experts, is the continuation of the large and in charge, natural brows. Brows act as a frame to the face, and when they’re bold and defined, that frame will bring definition and strength to your everyday look. A filled-in brow, accomplished through our Brow Shading procedure, will allow you to wear less eye makeup because it will draw the eye upwards, thus allowing your eye makeup to be softer or even non-existent if you so choose. A bold lip and defined brow can be all that you need to face an important meeting or say yes to that blind date! There is a Difference Between Heavy and Full Seeing your favorite model or makeup artist rocking a big, bold eyebrow can inspire you to embrace a new look, but if you’re the owner of a set of thinner brows, think again. Too much pomade or pencil can make your face appear heavy and your brows to seem unnatural. Alicia will focus on Microblading for your style instead, which adds thin, hair-like strokes to your brows for subtle definition and increased fullness. Remember, a thick eyebrow may look awesome on a celebrity you admire, but it might not be a look that enhances your personal and unique beauty, and that is okay! Leave the decision for the expert to decide to avoid being overpowered by your brows. 2017 is the Year for Microblading 2017 has definitely been the busiest year for microblading appointments, and has easily become the year’s hottest trend. When you have your eyebrows microbladed, you’ll walk away with natural, bold, and semi-permanent brows that look absolutely stunning and require no more powders, pomades, or gels! Your features will always be framed by your gorgeous microbladed eyebrows. What is the catch? Microblading lasts 3-5 years depending how well you take care of them. It is recommended to book a touch up appointment once a year, to preserve the look of your brows and keep them looking fresh and fabulous for months to come! Consider making an appointment to have your eyebrows microbladed. The semi-permanent procedure will change your life, there is no downtime, and your brows will always be “on fleek”.
