Beautiful Brows: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right Brow Fill For You 

Now that we have discussed the benefits of semi-permanent makeup, let’s break it down by category – starting with brows. Because who doesn’t want beautifully groomed brows? Your brows help to define and shape your face, so choosing the right brows is really the foundation of your beauty regime. With Make Blink Studio’s brow options, you’ll be able to find the right brows – whatever your needs. Next, we will talk you through some of our beautiful brow options: including ombre, phi, and colour boost brows.

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.
  • Provides a natural look: Initially, ombre brows have a more dramatic, filled-in appearance, but after healing takes place, the results appear as a beautifully soft, yet defined shape.


Phi Brows (using a Hand tool ). PhiBrows is one of the most popular beauty treatments today thanks to the range of benefits it provides to the clients.

Colour Boost Brows 

Colour boost brows are necessary to keep your permanent makeup fresh and defined over time. The colour boost technique is used to brighten your eyebrows by adding more colour, and definition – giving you an overall refreshed look.

Eyes are Everything 

“The eyes are the windows to your soul” –  and we couldn’t agree more! Your eyes are often the first feature that someone will notice, so why not accentuate your eyes’ natural beauty with some striking definition? 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 your eye shape.


If you are a makeup lover, you will most likely know the struggle of applying eyeliner – which can be quite a daunting task. Getting your eyeliner precise is a coveted skill, and even if you have perfected it, eyeliner application is still tedious and time-consuming. That’s why many people are increasingly opting for semi-permanent eyeliner. Smudge-free and fuss-free, semi-permanent eyeliner is really the way forward.

What Does the Eyeliner Procedure Involve? 

The eyeliner procedure involves the use of an electric device, whereby the artist inserts semi-permanent pigments of natural origins into the skin of your eyelids, thus drawing on your eyeliner in the shape you want. This procedure is generally considered to be non-invasive, since it involves no actual downtime and you can carry on with your life right after it, but it does entail a few weeks of healing, as your skin needs to recover from the micro-trauma.
