The new SHADOW FX, Special Effects Needle, makes quick work of "Enhanced Shadow_SE_3325_VelvetNeedleEyeliner™".  Gold Dust pigment (Kolorsource) was chosen by this professional for soft, yet dramatic, highlights above her black eyeliner.  The Shadow FX needle has 25 points in a sloped, rounded configuration for a handtool.  The special handle for this needle sports a custom "hole" into which the needle fits snugly.  Time?  It takes about 7-10 minutes per eyelid.  Simply "paint it on and tap it in" are the instructions by Dr. Dixon.  The highest point should be above the pupil and then taper downward toward the nose and outer corner of the eye in a "half moon" shape.  Do not do "batman wings" that extend upward and outward.

Eyebrow hairs grow more like a meteor shower than soldiers in a row tilted like the leaning tower of Pisa.  They are thick and thin.  Brow hairs are both solid and translucent.  They are different colors and shades of the same color.  They are short and long.  They grow up and out and down and out.  They overlap and cross each other.  They merge, like cars into traffic on a freeway.  Where they converge the color becomes dense and dark.  The skin is visible underneath sparce hairs and invisible under a thick blanket of hairs.

There are no "solid" brows in nature.  Only a meteor shower of hairs.  And when they're gone, on goes the makeup. Or better yet, we have a chance to help restore the shape and color that's gone missing.  Eyebrows are the ultimate challenge and you'll do well to study them closely.  Get a book like "Secrets to Drawing Realistic Faces, by Carrie Stuart Parks" and practice drawing faces, including brows.  Those who do calligraphy can tell you that the pressure aBrows_Before_After_Convention_AAMnd duration of each stroke will allow you to make "hairs" that taper from thick to thin.  Needle size, configuration and depth help us get finer hairstrokes.  Colors provide dimension.  Patience and practice will reward you with pleasing brows with texture and dimension.  Subtle, "you'd never guess they were tattooed!" eyebrows.  Do yourself a favor.  For best "no orangey" results use the Kolorsource™ NuBrown Eyebrow colors and save 25% on a kit of 10 colors today. For eyebrow hair highlights, try Yellow Flesh or Neutral Flesh and make a fine line next to your hairstroke at the top 1/3 only.

This video is the first of two videos of the same patient who wanted eyeshadow.  The basic 2-Step Procedure of "Paint-it-on and tap-in-in" applies.  Make sure you have your pattern of eyeshadow applied with your pigment and a fine-tipped makeup brush before you pick up your needles.  Color used:  SMOKE by Kolorsource. Questions?  888/664-9990.
