Beauty and its Relation To Life Longevity

History shows that beauty standards are ever-evolving, and what was once considered the pinnacle of beauty, may now be seen as the complete opposite. What constitutes as beautiful in any given time can be very complex – owing to a number of societal factors. Despite the difference in beauty standards throughout history, one commonality is clear: a beautiful appearance is a ‘’healthy’’ one. Studies have shown how taking care of your aesthetic appearance – establishing a beauty routine, investing in time for self-care, and pampering yourself, can actually have a positive impact on your well-being, improve your confidence, better your health, and even increase your life longevity. Curious to learn more? Keep reading to find out more about how establishing a beauty routine can increase your vitality and longevity.

When Did The History Of Beauty Begin?

First, let’s go all the way back and take a look at the history of beauty. Why is it so important, and when did people start paying attention to beauty? Although it’s hard to measure the history of beauty throughout the world, we can observe that Western beauty standards were set over 2,400 years ago in Ancient Greece and Rome. Patterns of symmetry were noted in Greek standards, in which harmonious facial feature proportions signalled optimal beauty. For Ancient Greeks, the perfect face was divided into three sections: from hairline to eyes, from eyes to upper lip, and from upper lip to chin. The ideal face was two thirds as wide as it was high. Symmetrical beauty is still measured in today’s society, with the beauty equation seen in many contemporary celebrities and models
What’s more, throughout history, looks that signified health tended to be the most desireable – and this can still be seen in today’s beauty standards.
“What all beautiful women today have in common is an obvious look of health,” says Andrea Robinson, beauty editor of Vogue. “Even a model’s skin tone implies she leads a healthy life. This is the look today’s women try to achieve.”

Aging Gracefully – The Secret to Longevity Lies in Health

The human body has two different ages: a chronological age and a biological age. Every year you get one year older, whether you like it or not – and this is your chronological age, which you cannot alter or change in any capacity. However your biological age can technically be altered and improved. Your biological age reveals how healthy your body is and can also be a predictor of your longevity. If you take great care of yourself, it’s possible to be 50 years old chronologically with a 30-year-old biological age. This can be achieved by the right lifestyle choices, including consuming a healthy diet, exercising regularly, reducing stress levels, not smoking, and avoiding excess alcohol consumption. Interestingly, research has also shown how well-being, beauty, and personal care behaviours can increase feelings of positivity about oneself, and extend life longevity. How is this possible? Well, the psychological experience of feeling positively about oneself is known as subjective well being (SWB) and has been shown to have significant health benefits. People with SWB tend to engage in health-promoting activities: they eat and sleep better, have increased immunity and even care for themselves in improved ways. Studies show that SWB can even extend longevity, adding up to 7.5 years of life.
Beauty also plays a role in this. According to Vivian Diller, psychologist and author of the book ‘’Face It’’, beauty and personal care behaviors enhance SWB, which in turn promotes other self care behaviors. Vivian Diller’s studies point to how beauty habits can impact overall well-being, with people even smiling more, walking taller, having a confident stride, and making more direct eye contact – when they take care of themselves and their appearance. We all know that sensation of ‘’feeling great’’ after spending a few minutes putting on makeup, caring for our skin or getting our hair done, but now we have the scientific evidence to prove that self-care can positively impact our health as well. So, now you have it – treat yourself to some self-care and time for your beauty regime, content in the knowledge that you are adding to your life longevity, and improving your health.

Our Top 10 Beauty Secrets and Hacks

They say that ‘’beauty is in the eye of the beholder’’ meaning that beauty is subjective – and what appears as beautiful to one person, may take on an entirely different meaning to another. Although this is true, it cannot be denied that universal beauty standards do exist. So, what secrets and hacks will help you to achieve a glowingly beautiful appearance? Remember – everyone is beautiful in their own unique way! These beauty secrets and hacks are simply meant to emphasize, not change – your natural beauty. So sit tight, as we talk you through our top 10 beauty secrets and hacks.

1. Good Skin is the Foundation of Good Makeup

Do you remember the era of high-coverage, cakey, and orange-hued foundation? For any millennials reading this, we’re sure you can (not so fondly) reminisce on the days of your makeup regime consisting of Maybelline’s Dream Matte Mousse, combined with a too-thick powder, followed by an unnecessarily excessive dose of bronzer and blusher, and perhaps some powder blue eyeshadow to finish off the look. Yikes! Luckily we have evolved way beyond this look, and today, good skin care is actually trendy. Don’t get us wrong, we love makeup – but piling on layers of foundation, powder, and bronzer while neglecting your actual skin care, is a recipe for disaster.
Good skin is the foundation of good makeup (no pun intended!). At the end of the day, the better your skin looks, the better your makeup will look. Try skipping foundation and just using concealer some days, or try using a tinted moisturizer instead. If you regularly wear foundation, aim to use non-comedogenic products – aka products that won’t block your pores.

2. Establish Your Skin Type – And Tailor Your Skin Care Routine to Fit Accordingly

Have you ever wondered what type of skin you have? With so much information circulating, it can be confusing to pinpoint your exact skin type. There are five different skin types: oily, dry, normal, combination and sensitive:
    • Oily skin produces an excess of sebum that causes the skin to appear shiny and feel greasy—especially throughout the t-zone.
    • Dry skin is typically dull and may become rough, flaky or even scaly. It often feels tight or less elastic and may be prone to showing more visible lines.
    • Normal skin is balanced and not prone to breakouts, flakiness, or tightness. Pores are generally small, the skin’s texture is smooth, and it is less likely to be blemish prone.
    • Combination skin includes areas that are dry as well as oil – with the T-Zone generally being oily, and the cheeks being either dry or normal.
    • Regardless of which type of skin you have, if you have sensitive skin, it may be red, feel like it’s burning, itching or dry.
By understanding what type of skin you have, you can make informed decisions to support your specific skin needs. Take some time to familiarize yourself with skin types, and do an online skin type assessment if you are still unsure.

3. Get Serious About Your Skincare

Now that you have pinpointed your skin type, it’s time to get serious about your specific skin care needs. Although a huge amount of skin care advice exists, for starters you can take the complexity out of the process by adhering to three basic steps of a skin-care routine: cleansing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen. You should cleanse then moisturize every morning and night. You should also apply sunscreen every morning, but you can use a moisturizer that has at least 30 SPF and broad-spectrum protection to combine those two steps. Also, make sure to apply a moisturizer or a night cream before bedtime to ensure overnight skin hydration. Serums, toners, exfoliants, and prescription treatments should be applied after cleansing but before moisturizing.

4. Don’t Skip the Sunscreen!

Remember when sunscreen was seen as ’uncool’? Times have changed, because today sunscreen is all the rage! A vital component to your skin care, when worn daily sunscreen can prevent the skin from UV damage, aging and unwanted dark spots.
Kim Kardashian’s dermatologist, Dr. Harold Lancer, recommends that sunscreen of SPF 30+ be worn daily for best results. So take it from the experts, and get lathering on your sunscreen!

5. Avoid Wearing Makeup When Working-Out 

Wearing makeup when engaging in any kind of sweaty pursuit – from gym-going to running, can wreak havoc on your skin. The worst culprit is foundation, which, when mixed with sweat creates the perfect breeding ground for acne and blemishes to fester in. If you really can’t resist, opt for a super-light tinted moisturizer or BB Cream which won’t be too heavy on your skin. Once you are finished with your workout, make sure to thoroughly wash and cleanse your face right away.

6. Never Sleep With Your Makeup On

This one may seem like an obvious point to make, but it’s easier said than done. We have almost all been guilty of sleeping with our makeup on, whether it’s from having one too many drinks, or simply being too tired to remove makeup and cleanse. To avoid unnecessary breakouts, blemishes, and clogged pores, make sure you wash your entire face thoroughly before hitting the hay.

7. Achieve Natural Beauty Without Applying Makeup

You don’t need makeup to look naturally beautiful – because we are all naturally beautiful in our own way. However, the trials and tribulations of daily life can leave you feeling stressed and wiped-out, and this can manifest in your physical appearance – resulting in a tired, dull, or lackluster facial appearance. In this case, makeup comes to the rescue, brightening up and refreshing your appearance. However, makeup should be used as a beauty emphasizer to accentuate your features, rather than a tool to completely overhaul your appearance. But in today’s society, makeup is too often used to mask insecurities, or achieve ‘perfection’. What’s more, according to a report by TODAY and AOL, women spend an average of 55 minutes every day applying makeup. This equates to approximately 335 hours – or two full weeks – of makeup application per year! Just think of the time you would save every year if you didn’t have to spend time doing your makeup everyday….
You can achieve a naturally beautiful look without conventional makeup products. Semi-permanent makeup is revolutionizing the beauty industry as we know it – saving countless people the time and energy that is required for tedious everyday makeup applications. At Make Blink Studio, our stylish and intimate studio is the place to go for tailored treatments to enhance your natural beauty. From lips, to brows, to eyeliner – we have you covered – whatever your semi-permanent makeup needs may be. Book-in today with one of our professional artists, and leave feeling more confident than ever.

8. Don’t Neglect Your Eyebrows!

We have said it before, and we’ll say it again – when it comes to beauty, eyebrows are everything! Your brows help to define and shape your face, so choosing the right brows is really the foundation of your beauty regime. Ample, well-defined arches have the ability to soften and define your facial features, and bring symmetry to your overall facial shape. Shaping the perfect brow to suit your facial structure is no easy feat – so be sure to consult with an eyebrow artist if you are unsure or apprehensive about doing DIY brow-shaping. What’s more, if you want to save yourself the hassle of constant brow grooming, we strongly recommend considering semi-permanent brows. With Make Blink Studio’s, our expert team of brow artists will be able to find the right brows for you – whatever your needs. We offer a range of beautiful brow options: including ombre, phi, and colour boost brows.

9. Emphasize Your Eyes

Do you often feel frustrated when applying eye makeup? It’s undoubtedly the most difficult of all makeup applications. From mastering the precision of a difficult cat-eye, to meticulously applying false eyelashes, eye makeup application can really feel like mission impossible. No matter where you fall on the makeup-skills spectrum, you can perfect your eye-look with semi-permanent makeup. At Blink Makeup Studio, we offer eyeliner fine line definition, and eyeliner shading for both cat style top line and fine lower line. The benefits of receiving semi-permanent eyeliner range from not needing to wear eyeliner anymore (if you frequently wear it as part of your beauty routine), to enhancing the beauty of your eye shape. Smudge-free and fuss-free, semi-permanent eyeliner is really the way forward.

10. Confidence is Key

It’s important to remember that beauty also comes from within. Any physical changes you make to your appearance, whether through using conventional beauty products, or semi-permanent or permanent beauty procedures, should be incorporated to enhance – rather than to change your natural beauty. On that note, we love this quote from actress Emma Stone, on the importance of confidence:
“Confidence is the only key. I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally beautiful, not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves. I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.”
So stand tall and embrace yourself, imperfections and all! As long as you see yourself as beautiful then there isn’t anything that can stop you from feeling that way. When using beauty products or semi-permanent makeup procedures, aim to accentuate – rather than to change your natural beauty.
Curious to learn more about how we can help you accentuate your natural beauty? Book-in today with one of our professional artists, and leave feeling more confident than ever.

Ombre Brows

You have most likely heard of an ombre hairstyle, but what exactly are ombre brows? The ombre brow method involves the application of thousands of tiny dots of pigment, inserted into the skin, gradually building up a colour and defined shape. This type of brow provides a fuller and more defined eyebrow look. Many people are apprehensive about this method, because its results are more defined and dramatic than a microblading method. However, Make Blink Studio’s ombre brow method provides a natural, yet striking look. So, what’s all the hype about ombre brows? Here are just some of its benefits: 

  • Less invasive: Ombre brows are achieved using a small machine, which disperses extremely fine dots of pigments into the skin in an airbrush technique, which is less invasive than microblading. 
  • Less pain: Ombre brows are less painful due to the airbrush-like technique, which creates less trauma to the skin than other semi-permanent brow procedures.
  • Long-lasting results: Results do vary, but a single ombre brow session, using high-quality pigments, can last on average 2-3 years. 
  • Suitable for all skin types: Ombré powder brows are great for any skin type, including those with oily skin.

How to Decide the Best Shape For Your Eyebrows

GETTY IMAGES

Once upon a time, skinny brows reigned supreme – despite the fact that thin brows don’t suit many face shapes, almost everyone hopped on the over-plucked bandwagon. Nowadays, we are all (thankfully) a lot more savvy, and we know that eyebrows help to shape and define your entire face – so it’s important to sculpt your brows to suit your individual facial features and bone structure. Chances are that you’ve put down the tweezers in lieu of a fuller brow, and now that your eyebrows have had some time to replenish, it’s time to find the shape that truly flatters your facial structure. But how do you know if you need a sharp arch, a gentle curve, or a straighter structure? Aesthetic beauty is an art, a science, and strangely, a mathematical equation. In fact, the Greeks said that all beauty is mathematics. So let’s figure out this equation – firstly, we’ll look at how to determine what your face shape actually is.

 

Round

YAHOO IMAGES

Your Face Shape: If you have a round shaped face, your face will curve outward with a rounded chin, and your cheekbones are generally the widest part of your face. Celebrities such as Selena Gomez have this face shape.

The Best Brow Shape For You: Give structural definition to a round face with full, angled arch brow. If you have a round face where the length and width of your face are roughly the same, you should opt for a high arch which will help to elongate your face.

Long

GLAMOUR

 

Your Face Shape: If your face is noticeably longer than it is wide, you most likely have a long face shape. Your forehead, cheekbones and jaw should also be equal in width, with a rounded jaw.

The Best Brow Shape For You: For this face shape, opt for a low-lying arch, straight and elongated brows to add width to your facial structure.

Square

GREGG DEGUIRE/WIREIMAGE

Your Face Shape: If you have a square face, you will have a more angular jawline with the height and width of the face roughly the same.

The Best Brow Shape For You: Soft arches that lift the brows can soften a square-shaped jawline. Make sure to avoid sharp and angled brow which can create a severe look.

 

Inverted Triangle

GETTY IMAGES

Your Face Shape: If you have an inverted triangle face shape, your forehead is the widest part of your face, tapering down to a narrower, pointy chin.

 

The Best Brow Shape For You: Aim for round brows which will give the effect of softening your face. Higher brows will help to de-emphasize a wide forehead, and create the illusion of more symmetry between the forehead and jawline.

Heart

GETTY IMAGES

Your Face Shape: Heart-shaped faces are wider at the forehead than at the jaw, and have a pointed chin.

The Best Brow Shape For You: Take inspiration from Cara Delevinge and opt for a thicker brow – which can help balance heart-shaped features. To help balance the chin, a soft, rounded arch and straighter brows are also optimal choices.

Diamond

FREDERICK M. BROWN / GETTY IMAGES

Your Face Shape: The diamond shaped face is the rarest of face shapes, with beauties such as Halle Berry having this facial structure. The diamond shape is defined by a narrow forehead, wide cheekbones and a narrow chin.

The Best Brow Shape For You: If you have a small forehead, pointed chin and wide cheekbones you should keep the arches of your brows rounded to soften your facial structure. Steer clear of an overly-defined finish on the brows, as this can look harsh on the face shape.

Oval

GETTY IMAGES

Your Face Shape: If you have an oval-shaped face, your face is longer than it is wide, your cheekbones are the widest part of your face, and your jaw is soft without any sharp angles or points.

The Best Brow Shape For You: Oval face shapes are very symmetrical, so stick with a slight arch and ensure your brows start and end on the same level. Luckily, oval face shapes are very balanced, so you won’t need to do too much work to manipulate your natural brow shape. Keep it natural with soft, angled brows.

We hope you have enjoyed reading – and discovering – the best shape for your eyebrows. Remember, the practice of perfecting your eyebrow shape is an art, so be sure to consult with a professional brow artist before making any drastic changes to your natural eyebrow shape. With Make Blink Studio’s, we will sculpt your brows to perfectly suit your facial structure. What’s more, we have some beautiful brow options: including ombre, phi, and colour boost brows.

Everything you need to know

We are all makeup lovers. We can spend a few hours to perfect the makeup. But what if I told you there is a way to have a permanent winged eyeliner or a permanent perfect red pout? Will you fight for it? So, in today’s post, I will tell you everything about completing permanent makeup.

How are tattoos done? The needle penetrates your skin and releases the pigment. Correct? Well, this is how to make permanent makeup

Eyebrows micropigmentation basically serves to fill in gaps, correct the design, increase the size of the eyebrows, and make them fuller. Each technique provides a different result, but the objective is basically the same.

Lip micropigmentation aims to correct the contour of the lips, for those who have asymmetrical lips and want to harmonize them, and serves to fill, giving the lipstick effect or just revitalizing the natural colour and It helps the natural restimulation of collagen and elastin.

Scalp Pigmentation follows the same concept as eyebrow micropigmentation, as the aim is to fill in the scalp gaps arising from baldness, among other problems.

Paramedic tattoo is used for areola reconstruction, to camouflage scars, white marks or even stretch marks, and cases where the patient has had hair and / or hair loss in some parts of the body are also considered paramedic pigmentation there is deformation of the lips, for example (cleft lips), among other practices such as many types of Alopecia or after chemotherapy

Not only for aesthetic well-being, but the treatments can also assist in the self-esteem of people who seek to correct physical aspects that have been affected in some way.

How we do Semi Permanent Makeup?

The pigment Implantation process can be done with manual devices such a manual pen also known as Tebori or a Permanent Makeup machine to both to implant the pigment on the skin with needles In a Basal layer of the skin

The procedure follows the following steps:

First a measurement is made and the professional demarcates the place where the pigmentation will be done.

Afterwards, the professional applies the anesthetic ointment to reduce discomfort during the procedure;

The procedure starts with the application of pigments on the skin, using a dermograph or tebori;

The result will depend on which technique was chosen by the client;

In what parts of the body can the procedure be done?

It is wrong to think that only the eyebrows benefit from the technique. The greatest demand for the procedure is in the eyebrows, but it can also be done on the lips to contour and fill, on the eye contour to outline, on the scalp to correct flaws, and even on the nipples, in stretch marks and scars.

How long does it take to perform the procedure?

The procedure can take, on average, an hour, but this varies according to the area of ​​the body where it will be done.

Is the final result visible immediately after completion?

No. During the first 30 days the shade will be a little darker. This happens because of the skin’s healing process. After the skin heals, the final color will be visible.

So it is very important to take the necessary care so that the skin heals in the best possible way.

How does healing work?

As mentioned above, the skin healing process can take up to 30 days after the procedure. During this process, the skin reacts with a protective measure, as our body understands the procedure as an aggression. Cones may even appear during this time, but it is recommended not to remove them.

Each person has a particular healing process, and in some cases the skin may end up expelling the pigment, which will result in some flaws where the procedure was performed. This is where touch-up is needed!

After the healing period, the professional will touch up the pigment in the places where the flaws are, so that the skin will react less intensely and will better absorb the pigment being reapplied.

Touch-up should never be performed before the skin is fully healed, as this can end up hurting the region and causing health complications.

What post-procedure care?

For the procedure to be successful and achieve the expected result, it is important to follow a series of recommendations. Look:

Properly use the ointment indicated for healing;

Avoid washing the place after the procedure;

Avoid hot water;

Avoid exposure to sunlight;

Do not use saunas and swimming pools;

Do not clean the skin or use makeup;

Do not remove the cones;

How long does micropigmentation on the skin last?

The average duration of a micropigmentation is one year. Each skin reacts in a different way, but it is very important that after the procedure all professional recommendations are made so that the final result is the desired and best possible.

In the past, the permanent makeup technique was more like a tattoo, so the procedure ended up being permanent. Currently, as the pigment is deposited in the most superficial layer of the skin, the procedure has become semi-permanent
