The Unique 3 Step approach to creating emBrowdery™ Perfect Brows.

The Safe and Gentle alternative to Microblading.

Now, thanks to emBrowdery™ everyone can have the ultimate in well-groomed, perfectly balanced brows. This unique new affordable beauty procedure was introduced to Ireland by Up To My Eyes, the industry leader specialists in lashes and brows. Whether your client’s brows are over-plucked or just plain non-existent, emBrowdery™ will create realistic hairs in the brows to create the perfect shape for your client’s face and transform the way they look and feel about themselves.

emBrowdery™ is a method whereby pigment is implanted into the top layer of the epidermis of the skin by a “plucking up” gentle motion with a manual tool. The appearance is completely natural, soft, powdery, subtle and blends with or without hair along the brow bone. New nano-technology is used in the emBrowdery™ pigments which allows the colours to stay in place regardless of how light the strokes are applied. Natural shades are easily achieved.

Attendance at Academy

3 consecutive days. A 4th day will be arranged to review work carried out by students after a significant practice period has been completed. A Professional Kit is Included.

After a detailed client consultation, using a variety of tools which we will supply you with in your kit, you will create the perfect eyebrow shape to suit your client’s face, personality and desires. You will then choose the correct pigment colour to suit your client’s skin tone. You are now ready carry out the 1st emBrowdery™ Pass.

Within a week of your client’s first treatment the colour will fade significantly and over the next four weeks can continue to fade as much as 70%. The theory of  emBrowdery™ is that the pigment is being “carried” by the body from the top layer to the bottom layer of the epidermis. A certain amount of pigment will also naturally exfoliate as the skin sheds. This is considered an extremely positive occurrence as it allows your client time to reflect on their shape and colour.

After a month the 2nd Pass of emBrowdery™ is carried out. At this point any changes your client would like to make are discussed. Most changes can be easily achieved. Pigment shade is checked within the skin and any required adjustments to colour are made. Once again you can expect your client’s colour to fade but to a much lesser degree.

Another month later and the final “Pass” of emBrowdery™ is carried out. At this stage the colour vibrancy is increased and fading should be minimal. Your client will now have the perfect lasting eyebrow shape regardless of whether they have brow hairs or not.

The procedure is virtually painless and has been likened to the sensation of eyebrow plucking but not as severe as eyebrow threading. There is no need to apply anesthetic during an emBrowdery™ treatment as no pressure is applied to the skin and no cutting down into the skin is required. There are no side effects, save for perhaps a little bit of redness that you might have created whilst removing excess pigment from the brow area. This slight redness can be easily camouflaged with make-up and will disappear within minutes.

emBrowdery™ Course: €2,200

Course Schedule

The course will include Theory and Practical Sessions. Each day will start at 9.00am and finish at 6.00pm There will be a one hour lunch break, with morning and afternoon coffee/tea breaks. The course is limited to 4 students and each student will be required to bring in a model for their lesson on Day 3.

Student home study hours will be:

  • Step by step learning of the basic emBrowdery™ strokes. There are 8 steps involved in creating a 30 stroke formation. Students will need to produce photographic evidence of each step performed correctly before being instructed to move on to the next step.
  • A minimum of 4 emBrowdery™ Treatments should be carried out on 4 individual models. A portfolio for each model must be created and forwarded with photographic evidence to the Tutor. If, at this stage the tutor thinks your work is up to standard, you will be asked to come back in for an assessment. You will be required to bring a new model for this assessment.

Although it may seem quite simple, emBrowdery™ artistry is not a skill you are likely to see possessed by a typical micro-pigmentation therapist and is more skilled than micro-blading. Only someone who is totally proficient in the procedure involved in brow design can truly be called an emBrowdery™ Brow Shaper. You need to have realistic expectations of what you will be able to achieve initially as this technique requires time and patience to master.
