If you remember, I blogged about Erabelle’s signature Erabrowlogy earlier this year, and I was so impressed with it! I’ve mentioned before dozens of times just how anal I am about eyebrows, and I was psyched to have Erabrowlogy done on my brows to give me that perfect natural looking brow shape!
Visited Erabelle at their roadshow (it was at Wisma Atria) and yes, you can get Erabrowlogy done at their roadshows too! So excited to give my brows a makeover with Erabrowlogy!
Here’s a couple pictures of my “before” brows.. As you can see, my brows are quite neat, but are a little sparse and undefined.
Erabelle’s EraBrowlogy is the latest brow treatment launched in Erabelle, which is a holistic eyebrow embroidery treatment to give beautiful and natural-looking brows that frame the face with enhanced colour retention! It is a semi-permanent color service for the eyebrows, which will lend colour and depth to pale, faded or naturally sparse brows and can correct the shape and colour of poorly-tattooed eyebrows that downplay one’s attractiveness.
The effect will last 2-3 years with the full course of treatment and proper care.
Step 1: Brow Preparation
A brow mask will be applied onto the brow area that removes dead skin cells and excess sebum, whilst hydrating the skin. This is especially advantageous for those with oily or dry skin, as unhealthy skin condition is one of the factors contributing to colour retention.
We first started with a brow mask that prepares your brows for the Erabrowlogy treatment!
The brow mask is left on for a few minutes before the next step: Erabrow Design!
Step 2: Erabrow Design
Customisation design process includes face shape and eyebrow analysis, designing, trimming and tweezing. Creation of the perfect arch will then be done with Erabelle Long-Lasting Brow Pencil where shade is chosen accordingly to suit skin tone and hair colour.
This step took the longest time for me because I wanted to ensure that the brow shape was what I wanted. After all, the results will last for a good few months before my next touch up, and I didn’t want to have a brow shape that I’m not satisfied with.
After some discussion with my brow therapist and some modification and editing, I was finally happy with the drawn brow shape and was ready to have the actual procedure done!
As my face shape is long and oval.. Straight and slightly arched brows suit me best!
Of course.. the more Korean the better. I love Korean brows! 😀 I was advised not to go toooooo thick though as brows that are too thick might overwhelm my features!
I thought that this shape was really good, it complemented my features well, and the slight arch helped to make me look sharper and framed my eyes better.
Step 3: Patch Test
Patch test is done before procedure to test for any allergy to the certified colour pigment used.
Another important procedure before proceeding to the actual treatment, to ensure that your skin will not react to the colour pigment used! Not to be worried, as all colours exceed the safety standards of European Cosmetic Directive and/or are approved by FDA (Germany).
Step 4: Preparation of Equipment
Once the patch test is done and it is safe to carry on, the equipment is prepared! New Micropen tips and colour cups are used for every customer to ensure that strict hygiene standards are observed.
And so.. the actual Erabrowlogy treatment began!
Step 5: Application of Colour
The Softstroke technique used coupled with topical numbing cream and micropen seeks to induce an experience of minimal discomfort. In addition, photos will be taken pre- and post- treatment to monitor the results.
To be honest, I was a little apprehensive about it because some people say that eyebrow embroidery can be painful! However, with the numbing cream applied, I really didn’t feel much except a mild stinging sensation during the process of Erabrowlogy.
Right after Erabrowlogy: what my right brow looked like! What I like is that the end product really looks very natural and not like a solid block of colour/shape like some really fail eyebrow embroidery cases that I’ve seen out there :X
Post-Erabrowlogy: I’m really in love with the brow shape!
What also surprised me was how natural the brows looked straight away after the session, I was expecting to look like Crayon Shin Chan but my brows actually still looked pretty normal, just slightly darker than usual! Of course, the brows will fade to a lighter tone after a few days, so if you want really strong brows, don’t be afraid to let the brow therapist know that you want darker brows!
I super love how the new brow shape accentuates my face shape and defines my features so much more. I feel like I look more alert and more polished instantly!

With Erabrowlogy done, I can now save a step in my makeup routine too, because I won’t have to spend time meticulously drawing in my brows, which is something I used to do every day! I am really enjoying the defined and beautiful new brows and have received so many compliments on my brows!
Bet you didn’t know that YZ is as vain as a woman too.. I brought him down to get his brows shaped and designed at Erabelle too, as his brows are asymmetrical, a lil sparse and bushy looking! I usually help him trim his brows and keep them in shape, but after he saw my Erabrowlogy results, he now wants to do Erabrowlogy too! Lol.
YZ’s before Erabrow Design.
YZ was really pleased with his newly-designed eyebrows! 😀
In fact, I’m gonna be bringing YZ down to Erabelle’s roadshow at Vivocity this week (10 June – 15 June 2014) to get his Erabrowlogy done!! He’s extremely excited about it haha.
