3D Nano Korean Eyebrow Embroidery with The Prestige



If you noticed a slight change in my looks these few weeks and don't know what I did to my face.. 

Yup! I had Eyebrow Embroidery for the first time 3 weeks back with The Prestige Eyebrow & Lash Specialist located at Pacific Plaza #03-08 :)

A little background on the Prestige - 

The Prestige Eyebrow & Lash Specialist provides premium quality services in an elegant roman-themed atmosphere located at Pacific Plaza, Level 03-08.  Offering a wide range of services which focus on enhancing facial features in the most natural manner, whereby one's beauty is emphasized and achieved. Their signature treatments include the world renowned 3D Nano Duo Instrument Advanced Colouring Eyebrow Embroidery, Eyelash Extensions, Eyeliner and Lips Enhancement.

When I was younger in my secondary school days, I visited the nearby beauty shop to have my eyebrows trimmed at $5. And guess what, the China lady succeeded in making me look like a complete lian and all with super thin brows.
Then during my poly days, I would go for threading at Little India which was exceptionally painful.

I have never tried any eyebrow embroidery all my life and to be honest, I was a little skeptical going for it because I know that it's going to last for quite some time and I've heard all sorts of awful eyebrow embroidery stories that went wrong and would never want that to happen to me. 
But still I decided to take a leap of faith.. 

The Prestige, Pacific Plaza, Level 03-08
When I first arrived at the doorstep of The Prestige, I was in complete awe because it was so lavishly designed. 
The curtains and chairs were of velvet red and shiny gold which made the entire shop feel super atas. The owners of The Prestige have such good taste in furnishing the place.  

As my appointment with The Prestige drew closer, I was feeling both excited and freaking out at the same time. 
The people around me would know my tolerance for pain is really low!
But can you believe what a great job The Prestige did by reducing the pain to zero? 
It was such a relaxing 55mins process. 

Step 1 (15mins) - Embroidery Analysis 
They started with removing my makeup around my eyebrows then a photo will be taken to analyse and explain to you what should be done to enhance your face shape and features from having a fuller set of eyebrows. 


Step 2 (10mins) - Eyebrow Embriodery Design & Shaping 
They would then draw two different eyebrow designs, one on your left and one on your right eyebrow. You can then choose which design and shape you prefer.
Not sure if you can see the difference here but the one on the left has more of the arc with the 'tail' at the back while the right one was more subtle. 
I had a hard time deciding which side I should go for, the more defined eyebrow or a more natural look so I went around the parlour asking for opinions. Haha
Thankfully the ladies there were all very helpful and patient, they felt that I looked rather fierce with the arc, which was what I didn't want to portray.

 
Step 3 (15mins) - Numbing Process 
Crystal healing gel will be applied onto your eyebrows. 
You would need to wait for 15 minutes, so that the treatment would not hurt.  

My poor mommy did her eyebrow embroidery at Bishan and told me hers hurt so bad with every 'poke' on the skin but the people there refused to add more numbing cream for her. *angry*
After 15mins... I was brought into a comfy bed to lie on while they did their thang! 


Step 4 (15mins) - Eyebrow Embroidery Colouring Treatment
The Prestige uses an eyebrow embroidery instrument to design hair-like strokes on the top layer of your skin. 
Next, they would apply colour pigment onto your skin for absorption. 
As a result you will have a pair of thicker and fuller natural looking eyebrows.


 Pardon my face here, I was trying to maintain emotionless so that I won't move my brows!

 Almost there..

And tadah! Took this shot right after I was done!  
Initially I was still expecting some serious redness and swelling around the eyebrows, but there were none :) 
I'm impressed with how they made my eyebrows look so natural with the hair-like strokes. 
Really satisfied with the results and painless 55mins process!



In @Ohvola Velda Romper all done and ready to head out!

Did this before and after collage for easy comparison :) 


So happy I no longer have to head to gym looking all weak and tired especially when I don't draw my eyebrows. 

You know how some girls have no confidence when they don't have their makeup on? 

I'm definitely one of them. 
I can now exercise with no concern on how I would look ;) 



So glad I made this decision of visiting The Prestige! 
Here's how my eyebrows look after 3 weeks. 
I filled the unevenness with eyebrow power due to the peeling off of colour pigmentation. 
Not to worry, it's a normal process!
I was told that when the colour pigmentation comes off, we need to let it peel off naturally instead of using our hands.
A touch up treatment to achieve the desired eyebrow shape and colour is required. 
Can't wait for my next appointment with them :)

Pixioo Photography; Hatter Street Cafe


Before I start, I would like to say a big THANKYOU to Samuel from Pixioo Photography for the beautiful lookbook pictures featuring the prettay Amelia.W :) 

So it was our first time engaging Samuel that day, and we really don't know what to expect from a male photographer shooting our apparels, but what we do know is that he does an amazing job shooting for couple/weddings! See for yourself here

& very unfortunately towards the end of our shoot that day, Samuel's bag got stolen. 
Just because he left it unattended on the floor for less than 5min. 
Totally reminded me of that time when I left my phone in the toilet, but this time it's the entire bag!
It's sad how dishonest and greedy some people can be. 

We all didn't have the mood to continue shooting but Samuel insisted we finish up the last outfit. 
He was very positive and said, 'nevermind la, maybe god wants me to buy new stuff' in all smiles when we knew he was feeling very upset. His lens wallet ipad were all gone in minutes.  

It was indeed professional of Samuel. I cannot imagine what would happen if it's any other photographer. 
Do support Samuel by liking his Fb page alright?  

He's not only passionate about his job, he's also very efficient in fulfilling our requests :) 
 Looking forward to the next shoot with Pixioo! 




 Amelia is an Uk8 176cm and wears size M for our apparels!
Except for this Petite Dior Embossed Frock, Amelia wears size L and I wear size M!

---------------------------------------------

D'arcy oversized vest, a Zara inspired design
The cut and material used is really awesome, no wonder my girlfriends are getting it in both electric blue and white! 
Comes in only 1 size, fits all. 

Already wore the sample piece out last month during the GC blue Xmas dinner! 
With Kife, Naomi and Berlin :) 

-----------------------------------------------------------


Visited this new found gem in the neighborhood on Saturday. 
Hatter Street Cafe located just a few units beside the famous thai stall Nakhon Kitchen in Kovan. 




The name Hatter tells it all. 
It's an Alice in wonderland inspired cafe with interior all designed to look like it! 

 Saw these cutest Hawthorn(san zha) macarons on their Fb page and decided to drop by for it! 
It's for sale at $2/pc, lovingly made by the talented young boss of Hatter Street. 

Their 'woah'ffles with vanilla ice-cream and gula melaka tasted exceptionally good!

Mona lisa mommy so pretty :D 

 My hot chocolate with marshmallow, dayumz! 

Passionfruit tart & grandma's cake were not too bad either! 
I quite like everything we ordered that day. 
But! Be prepared for the bill..
I wasn't expecting to pay 'town's' price in the neighborhood. It was kinda pricey considering its location, in my opinion.

Casual weekend outfit, haven't wore pants out for the longest time! 
 Trinette Pants is one comfy pants you might want to consider for your dress down days. 
Matched with Adelle Eyelet top daffodil in light-weight chiffon, scalloped hem x eyelet cut 


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


 Today's ootd featuring Janon Tweed Skirt, i love to bits! 
Paired it with a basic white top and chunky neckline from my big sister's wardrobe.

Another design inspired by Zara! 


--------------------------------------


 Thankful for my erjie who always have my back:)
On me; Maryl Textured Dress
On Lu; Joia Applique Top + Jacques Midi 



Cutting runs slightly smaller for this design, so if you are slightly bigger than me do take size M!
I'm wearing size S in this pic and it fits me with no allowance. 

---------------------------

And lastly my favourite item of the collection, or rather my favorite piece under our label till date! 
The Val Opulence Dress <3 p="">
Fyi, I wore a regular strapless bra in it. 
A strapless bra can do the job for this dress but nubra would be perfect. 


With that, I'll see you at the launch at 2pm! 
Till then..

Keep love in your heart


Counting down 2 more weeks till the Lunar New Year.
I am seriously having some love/hate relationship with January.
It's a Friday night, I should be doing my usual pre-weekend routine. To have a good dinner and catch a movie with Sean but tonight I am way too lethargic to do so.
Here I am, at home clearing more work and being responsible to my blog.
I might just sleep through my movie you see..

Recalling last weekend, we went back to the office at 730am (with only 2hours of sleep) to prepare for our second CNY shoot, and at 11pm we were back there wrapping up all the loose ends for the new launch the next day.
Call us workaholics.

But don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining.
It's definitely good to be busy, but I just wish we can manage our time better.
Cos we really shouldn't be messing with our health by giving up sleeping time for work.
Well well.. 3 more collections to CNY.
We can do this!!

To St Regis a few days back for Alan & Serene's big day ;) 
It's a pity I didn't get any pictures with the them that night. 
Shall make do with my fav wedding shoot of them I snapped at the reception table. 
I love Serene's rosette pom pom dress, it's mad gorgeous!!
 
Happy marriage to this lovely full-of-smiles couple!
Stay blissful Serene :))


Unlike the usual wedding dinners, for every dish we got a plate to ourselves! So atas! 

Ree is indeed the queen of photobomb lol

And the boys just had to do this.. Why are my friends all so hilarious!

& my boyfriend looking all suave that night heh <3

What I wore; Devonne Maxi which I thought was perfect for dinner & wedding events. 
Gotta love the exquisite embellishments and a slit right in front! 
(wine is sold out on site, only black available) 

I love attending weddings. It's a beautiful night whereby I will get really touched and all teary-eyed when the couple gives their speech and walk down the aisle hand in hand :') 
One more to go on the 26th later this month, can't wait!

--------------------------------------------------


 I have been waiting for this Jacques midi to arrive for the longest time and when it did, I wore it out immediately :D
Love the quality material we handpicked and also how the heavy pleats folds so nicely!

Wore this happy-looking number out for our shoot last Sunday! 
Genevre Lace Frock; unique lace insert with geometric floral-like print :) 

And my best friend rocking the stylenanda sunnies with the gold skull umbrella I got her for Xmas!
Sorry for depriving you of your Sunday sleep to come for the shoot w us :p


Another studio shoot to go tomorrow! 
Till then..
