This is where you can solve your brow woes instantly! Arch Angel Brow: Korea Combo Eyebrow Embroidery Review

Looking for a brow solution that will change your life? Not trying to sound dramatic or begin my post with an unbelievable remark but a pair of pretty brows that suits your face really performs wonders to your overall appearance as well as daily routine.

I’ve always wanted those gorgeous “Korean brows” that make their celebrities look so natural, youthful and beautiful. I can imagine having such straight, demure looking brows will take at least a few years off my face, while looking refreshed, trendy and sweet. Korean makeup looks/faces are all the rage these days, right?

So yep, another example of how the changing the makeup for brows alone can make one look so different! Needless to say, I prefer the right side of her face (from my point of view), with well drawn, straight brows.

I’m not new to eyebrow embroidery, having tried them at a few places including Erabelle. But honestly, the results did not turn out as well as I expected, though they did help to maintain the shape of my brows so that it was easier to do my makeup.

Then recently, I was introduced to Arch Angel Brow (AAB) by a friend, and she mentioned that the eyebrow embroidery they do is different from the other beauty salons in Singapore, as they had specially imported state-of-the-art technology and beauty techniques from Korea. In fact, AAB is the first to introduce Korean Combo Eyebrow Embroidery in Singapore, and right now the embroidery technique is exclusive only to AAB. It’s now possible to achieve natural-looking, well-groomed brows immediately with no downtime, no aftercare required and no interruption to your regular beauty regime!

But first, a little about Eyebrow Embroidery…

Eyebrow embroidery gives you perfectly groomed brows that frame your features beautifully. Arch Angel Brow practices a semi-permanent technique to design and create natural-looking brows that complement your facial features using only 100% natural botanical pigments from Korea. AAB’s advanced technique ensures that your brows will not take on a reddish or bluish hue over time and will instead fade to your brows’ original colour.

All you need to do is sit back, relax as AAB’s brow consultants wield their magic wand and give your brows a makeover in the most comfortable and fuss-free way possible!

Arch Angel Brow is the brainchild of two enterprising ladies, Kelly and Eileen,who have a combined experience of 18 years in the beauty industry.

I became interested in what AAB has to offer because I have very sparse and uneven brows, and I have always struggled to present them in the best possible way, with makeup. Over the years, there were hits and misses. Lately, I became fascinated with the thick, dark-brow look, like that of Cara Delevingne.

I like the Korean brows too, and decided that they are more achievable as I’m so not blessed in the eyebrows department. And also being Asians, I guess very few can pull off Cara’s brows.

That’s the Korean eyebrow I’m talking about, and hopefully they are obtainable through AAB’s embroidery technique so that I can wake up with them without the hassle of daily makeup!

AAB has a cosy and warm interior which instantly made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Eileen attended to me for my session, and I was attracted to her friendly and sweet manners.

We started my consultation, and I expressed to her my brow woes and problems, and also what I wanted to achieve for my brows. From my conversation with the experienced beautician, I realised that having well-groomed brows that enhance our features is a common goal among most ladies. Better if it is not a hassle to maintain because we all love convenience!

My brow makeup that day is the result of a rushed job – I had drawn my brows too closely together, and they even look slightly unbalanced. Yes, that happens when I’m in a hurry and can’t spend more time doing my makeup. So, #browdisaster. Sometimes, I also tend to overestimate the amount of product to put on my brows when I multi-mask while making-up. Too many things can go wrong!

Maybe I was really trying to do a Cara Delevingne that day. And, it didn’t help that my right brow is slightly shorter than my left.

Eileen perfectly understood what my troubles were and explained how she would help me achieve my desired eyebrow shape, as well as fill in my (sparse) brows to alter their appearance.

She added that the Korean Combo Eyebrow service is suitable for me as it would enhance the colour of my brows using natural pigments, customised to suit my hair colour. With an eyebrow pencil, she proceeded to craft out what my left brow would look like after the embroidery. I appreciated that she had constantly stopped and reviewed with me the look of the brow before continuing to refine the result.

Eileen was very patient throughout the entire process, and we even started chatting about other topics. I understood that for my case, it was a little challenging as I had quite thin, uneven brows and one was shorter than the other. I was impressed by Eileen’s professionalism and felt that she had genuinely wanted to help me achieve more manageable brows!

Comparing both brows, the left that Eileen designed looks much like the Korean brow I wanted – it’s shorter and gives off a more youthful vibe. On the other side, I had drawn it a bit too close to my nose bridge, which made me look older and more intimidating! *laughs*

It’s absolutely important to get an expert’s opinion on the type of brows that will complement your facial features. A different set of brows will rejuvenate your appearance much more than you expect!

So, which side of me do you prefer?

When I was happy with the “draft” Eileen designed, numbing cream was applied on both my brows and I was led into a private room where the eyebrow embroidery process commenced with a slim, needle-like instrument. A brand new piece is used for each customer, to ensure top hygiene levels.

I nearly fell asleep during the service as I had felt so relaxed. Thanks to the numbing cream, it was relatively painless and felt similar to eyebrow tweezing. The actual Korean Combo Eyebrow process took about 30-4o mins.

And done! I think I had immediately looked so refreshed and about 5 years younger with these new brows! It’s like waking up from a dream to a prettier face without the burden of mismatched brows. So effortless! ?

No downtime and no need to even touch up my makeup as I went off for dinner after the session.

Thanks to Eileen, Kelly and AAB for giving me beautiful brows just in time for my Japan trip!

How long does this last?

AAB’s semi-permanent embroidery technique is the latest beauty technology from Korea, and its effect can last from about 1.5 to 3 years with touch-ups.

My new brows made my life so much easier. For example, in Japan, my makeup routine took at least 5 mins lesser as minimal makeup is required for my brows, and yet they maintained their shape very well. All I did was apply treatment oil for a week after the embroidery to keep the skin around the brow area moisturised, and to encourage hair growth.

It also feels amazing to be able to wash my face right after the procedure without having to avoid the area for a few days (unlike my previous eyebrow embroidery experiences). AAB got hassle-free right!

And these are the snaps after my touch-up, which is the same process as the first time without the consultation. I just wanted my brows to look darker and stronger, especially for the shorter right brow (which had faded just a little) as it has been over a month since my first visit. I went for a media event right after the touch-up, and nobody noticed that I had done anything to my brows! Subtle differences, with no downtime indeed!

Brow #gamestrong? If I may say so myself! 😛

Aside from eyebrow embroidery, Arch Angel Brow caters to your other beauty needs through their suite of customized beauty treatments and services, including Eyelash Extension, Eyeliner Embroidery, Lip Embroidery, Hairline Embroidery and Facial treatments.
