It may be hard for some to believe.. but I took this shot right after going to the gym on a Sunday with the hubs.
The camera obviously had a beauty mode on.. and none of us knew how to turn it off for some reason (and if you know me well, I don’t use such a strong beauty mode on my photos, so it’s definitely not because I’m hiding anything).
But skin aside, even my husband couldn’t believe I had NO makeup on. None whatsoever – and I attribute that 100% to Beauty Recipe and Jessie, who have been taking care of my eyebrows, lips, and now my eyeliner too!
In case you can’t see the eyeliner too close up from that picture, here’s another for you. I made it a GIF so you can see the effects of the eyeliner embroidery when my eyes are both closed and opened.
Needless to say, I’ve almost completely forgone the usage of any liquid/felt tip/pencil eyeliner besides for formal events when I want to create a longer wing. Otherwise, I even go to work like this. Yes, THIS exact post-gym look. All it takes is 5 minutes to settle some skincare and sunblock and I’m out of the house.
Of course, you’re probably wondering about the embroidery and healing process, so I’ll go ahead and share more.
The number one question I always get is: WAS IT PAINFUL?
The answer is nope, not one bit. I wouldn’t even rate it 2/10 on the pain scale. Maybe a 1/10 for discomfort because I didn’t dare blink lol. But otherwise there was really nothing to feel at all.
Why I say I was scared to blink is due to the fact that Beauty Recipe is REALLY thorough in their eyeliner embroidery, meaning that the embroidery extended to under the lashes as well so that your own lashes look fuller and your eyes look bigger.
Therefore, even though the black liner looks extremely thick in the image above, that’s only because it lines further than some other embroideries do. Something that I feel makes one’s money well worth it. There’s no point just having one pathetic line floating above your lashes because it’d just look weird. Take it from someone who had that for years before coming to Jessie.
|Hello blue-green tattoo from days of old!|
I did my eyeliner embroidery A LONG LONG TIME AGO.. probably even 5 years ago. And for that one, the pain rated at a 20/10. I remember crying and tearing and wanting to stop after 1 eyelid — but the pain that resonated with me the most was how humiliating it felt when the beautician told me that my tears was slowing down her process and that she had to move on to other customers. Didn’t help that they used some sub-standard ink and my eyeliner turned blue green..
Beauty Recipe was NOTHING like that. I remember the numbing process took 30 minutes: this was to ensure that I would feel ZERO pain after, and I really did feel zero pain!
Also, they constantly asked if I felt any discomfort during the process. It was a total game changer compared to my previous eyeliner experience.
|Look how natural it seems!|
The downtime lasted a few days? Maybe 5? I really didn’t notice, and my reason for that is because MY EYES WERE SO BIG. Haha! The swelling was extremely minimal but the blackness of the embroidery were the darkest during the healing process of course (refer to the collage above) and thus I thought my eyes were the MOST BEAUTIFUL at that time haha!
Totally opposite of how people feel during the healing process of their eyebrows because they want the dark brows to go away.. but I just really wanted the dark liner to stay!
FORTUNATELY, even after peeling my eyeliner was considered pretty black so I didn’t have to worry too much and I’m sure anyone who does it wouldn’t worry too. If you put your beauty in the hands of Jessie, her promise is to never let you walk away disappointed.
I had my eyeliner embroidery done by Jade at Jurong East, and she’s got TONS of good reviews for her skills as well! 🙂
For those who have had enough of spending 10 minutes drawing and correcting and relearning their eyeliners in front of the mirror every morning before work… consider this one of the best investments you’ll ever make!
