Marthinus

Marthinus completed his Training in Vienna, Austria in 2015 and since, has  then been working around South Africa. He  has done more than 5700 pairs of Eyebrows the last 4 years in counting!

Eyebrow Embroidery is the latest trend, a manual technique within the permanent makeup industry for women and men. It is a semi-permanentprocedure which will last between 12-18 months. First your Eyebrows will be will designed to best suit your eye and face shape. Upon confirmation of the proposed shape, 3D hair strokes are stategically placed in the epidermal layer of the skin with a thick pigment in several shades that does not change color, but slowly fades instead.  The color is selected according to your personal make-up style, hair color and skin tone. This technique is therefore more superficial than tattooing. Using a feathering technique with a unique hand instrument, this procedure creates a very natural look
