殘編繡眼線
不知不覺已經過一個月,前幾天 Twiggy店家貼心提醒去補色。這次殘編不只繡眼線,還嘗試了TWIGGY熱蠟除毛

先看影片全紀錄:

It’s been a month since my first eyeliner tattoo experience! I received a kind reminder a few days ago from Twiggy to go back for a touchup. In addition to eyeliner tattoo, I also tried eyebrow waxing this time!

先看繡眼線紀錄 (Let’s Talk About Eyeliner Tattoo Results first):

  • 繡眼線二訪(補色):

殘編首次繡眼線是11月14日,過程快速,無所謂「恢復期」,當天還直接參加我們時尚高潮的VIP餐會呢!錯過的美眉們看連結的這篇文章繡/紋眼線的恢復期約一個禮拜。殘編除了隔天眼皮有如哭過一樣稍腫之外,眼線也一直到了18號才有些許不明顯的脫落,差不多2厘米 (0.2公分)而已,之後也沒有再脫落了。一直到這次補色前,只有眼線中段部稍有褪色,重點的眼尾都還在。其實繡/紋完眼線後,結痂所脫落的色,差不多就是整套眼線所會掉的色。但繡眼線結痂時,不像繡/ 飄眉毛ㄧ樣有騷癢過渡期,所以比較好忍,不會想去扣結痂,整個恢復過程舒適很多。

English/英文版:

My first eyeliner tattoo session was on November 14th. The process was fast. The post-procedure aftercare is simple, I was able to attend our Fashion Ecstasy VIP dinner event right after! Follow this link if you missed it.

recovery/ healing period of eyeliner tattoo is about one week. Besides my eyelids being slightly swollen the next day, there was no scabbing until the 18th, with just about 2 mm (0.2 cm) falling off each eye. Up till my touchup appointment this time, only the middle of each eyeliner was slightly faded, the ends were still apparent.
Usually, the results after the scabbing are pretty much what you’re left with after an eyeliner tattoo session. The good news is, there’s no itching phase like microblading your eyebrows, making the whole recovery process is much more comfortable.

  • 眼線二繡:

有過經驗後的繡眼線過程舒適許多,也較沒有恐懼感。兩眼補色共耗時一小時又45分鐘,過程跟第一次一模一樣,先用電動刀勾線後,再用手工刀刺細節(詳情請讀這篇文章)或看這個影片:

English/英文版:

The second visit is much more comfortable and less scary, the procedure is exactly the same as the first session. Twiggy uses an electrical pen followed by a manual blade to tattoo each of my eyeliner.

  • 不知道是否因為已有經驗,這次殘編的眼皮並不像上次一樣跳得兇。

猶記上次繡眼線時,小嘍老師跟我一同對抗不停跳動的眼皮,那可真是一大挑戰。小嘍老師說眼皮跳動是自律神經的問題,咖啡攝取量、睡眠、疲憊、壓力等等都會影響眼皮跳動的頻率,所以殘編建議想繡眼線的妹妹們先睡飽、吃好,且避免喝太過量的咖啡或茶喔!還有不要跟男朋友不值得的人吵架。

English/英文版:

With experience this time, the twitching isn’t as crazy as last time. It was quite a battle last time. Twiggy tells me that eye spasms can be related to your sympathetic nervous system which can be affected by caffeine, sleep, fatigue, stress, and so on. Therefore, before your eyeliner tattoo appointment, I strongly advise you to eat well, sleep well, control your caffeine intake and avoid fighting with your boyfriend (s) those who are not worth it.

Twiggy 繡眼線結果 (Twiggy Eyeliner Tattoo Results):

  • 熱蠟修眉/ Eyebrow Waxing

熱辣除毛是外國人除毛的基本方式,盛行於國外是因為他們的毛髮較茂盛,也長得快。我們亞洲人平常刮刮毛就能解決的事,他們通常還得上沙龍做專業處理。殘編本身就是無毛豬,還曾因此被賜與綽號「小毛」。第一次被嫌毛髮雜亂是中風後住在加護病房之時,經過一個月的不修邊幅後,ㄧ位探病的男性友人看不下去我的雜亂眉毛,問我是否需要他幫我帶修眉毛的工具,真是害羞。

 

English/英文版:

Waxing is a common method for hair removal in the west to battle their fast-growing and fuller hair
What Asians usually do for grooming is simply shaving. It does the job just fine. I call myself a “hairless pig” because genetically, I don’t grow much hair. My best friend even nicknamed me ”little hair ” for that reason. After my stroke, I stayed in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit)for over a month, where I was closely monitored and received much intensive care for my brains, but none for my looks. My brows were a mess after a month. A male friend even asked me if I needed him to bring me a tweezer when he visited me at the hospital. I was embarrassed.

  • 殘編雖長期居住國外,但是國外盛行的熱辣除毛,殘編卻未嘗試過,因為看起來很痛

(印象中都是大片的撕)。
記得居住在加拿大時,姐妹三不五時就揪我上沙龍去熱蠟除毛,可惜我並沒有需求,否則藉此機會去沙龍與姊妹相處聊天、增進情感不也是一種享受?相較於拔嘎吱窩的毛,拔眉毛的疼痛顯然少許多。因此,這次嘗試熱辣修眉,心想應該還挺得住。

English/英文版:

I’ve tried laser hair removal, shaving, epilator, plucking, but in the ten years of living in Canada, I haven’t tried waxing for hair removal. As I said, I don’t need it, plus it looks violent and painful.
Whenever the girls invite me for a waxing day at the salon, I turn them down, even though waxing can be a self- indulging experience at the salon and an excuse to catch up with the girls. And I wonder why I have no girlfriends.

Since plucking my eyebrows is far less painful than the armpit. I decide to give eyebrows waxing a try.

  • 眼線補色完成,就開始熱蠟修眉了!

印象中的熱蠟除毛都是大片大片用力的撕,殘編不得不懷疑,東方人細緻的眉毛有辦法撕嗎?會不會撕了就變成無毛禿鷹?
上「手術台」後,小嘍老師先用厚厚的一層保濕凝膠敷眉毛和週邊十分鐘,這步不但可以保護殘編這種「乾妹妹」的乾性膚質、減少脫皮症狀,待會撕熱蠟時比較不傷肌膚,還有助於打開肌膚毛細孔。乾性膚質敷十分鐘、中性膚質則只需五分鐘。Twiggy 使用日本進口全天然的istaフェイスワックス(臉部專用熱蠟)熱蠟除眉。istaフェイスワックス(臉部專用熱蠟),產品無添加香料及色素,讓人使用安心。

English/英文版:

My impression of waxing consists of violent tearing & ripping from larger areas of the body.
I can’t help but worry if my delicate Asian eyebrows can be torn? Will I turn out like a hairless vulture?
After hopping onto the bed, Twiggy applies a thick layer of moisturizing gel to the eyebrows and the surrounding areas for ten minutes. This step not only hydrates and prevent damages to dry skin like mine but also help open up your pores. The moisturizer has to be left on for 10 minutes for dry skin, 5 for normal skin.
Twiggy uses Ista’s All-Natural face wax from Japan for eyebrow waxing. Ista Face Wax is fragrance-free, free of artificial pigment, and safe to use.

 

保濕凝膠擦掉後就開始熱辣除毛。小嘍老師在每支眉毛的周圍塗上約五塊熱蠟,等它冷卻後,身手敏捷、手段熟練地撕撕撕撕撕。

After wiping off the moisturizing gel, the eyebrow waxing begins. Twiggy applies about five pieces of hot wax around each eyebrow. After the wax cools down, she tears them off quickly and skillfully. Before I notice, she’s already done with the ripping.

 

  • ㄧ樣的動作重複三次。老師的動作迅速無比,殘編還來不及感覺到疼痛之前就已完成。細看拔下的熱蠟

殘駭中,連纖細到須用放大鏡才看得到的汗毛都被連根拔起,殘編大呼好神奇。熱蠟拔完後,小嘍老師再用一般修眉毛的鑷子(修眉夾)將熱蠟未拔到的粗毛與細部拔乾淨。漂亮的眉型出來後,老師用狀似膠原蛋白的冰敷凝膠,敷眉毛周圍十分鐘,幫助鎮靜毛孔。

Twiggy eyebrow waxing: even the finest hair is pulled out

English/英文版:

The waxing step is repeated three times. Taking a close look at the hot wax residue that has been removed, even the finest hair that can only be seen with a magnifier has been removed, pretty impressive. Twiggy then uses a regular tweezer to remove the thicker and stubborn hair that still remains. After the eyebrow waxing, Twiggy applies a cooling gel to the surrounding areas for ten minutes. The gel helps to calm the pores.

 

熱蠟修眉/除毛因是將毛髮連根拔起,故比一般修眉維持得久,維持的時間依人而異,約是每個人的眉毛生長週期,一週至四週不等。熱蠟拔完後,眉毛周圍稍有紅腫,但一般約20-30分鐘就會退。連敏感性膚質的殘編都在坐小黃回家的途中退了。下車便是煥然一新的眉眼。
Twiggy繡眼線專業、成果好,熱蠟修眉快速、無痛,成果乾淨,沒有雜毛殘留,平常行為舉止粗魯的殘編,照了鏡子都覺得自己清秀許多,多了前所未有的氣質呢(羞)!

English/英文版:

Waxing removes hair from the roots; hence the results last longer than shaving. The maintenance time varies from person to person, usually about the growth cycle of your eyebrow, which can range from one week to four weeks. Redness after eyebrows waxing is normal and usually fades away within 20-30 minutes. My sensitive skin took about 20 minutes. I came out my 20-minute cab right with a fresh new “lady” look.
Both my eyeliner Tattoo and eyebrows waxing experience at Twiggy Taipei has been great. The procedures are fast, and the waxing is painless. The results are clean and pretty!
