Want to define your eyes and accentuate your natural eye colour? PrincessBrows offer semi-permanent eyeliner tattoos. Rather than wasting time applying (and reapply) your eyeliner, the beauty studio offers a choice of looks for the upper and lower lash line, ranging from subtle to ultra-thick liner and wings to eyeshadows and entirely customisable looks. The colour choices are also unlimited, consisting of dark, neutral and accent shades, depending on whether you want to compliment or contrast your eyes. The pigments are free of Iron Oxide, FDA and EU Ink approved and the colour can last up to five years. This also pertains to other treatments on offer, such as the ‘Goodbye Panda Eye Treatment’ that places a custom blend of nano pigments under the first layer of the skin, essentially camouflaging the darkness underneath your eye. The procedure also smoothens any fine wrinkles and the overall appearance of the skin’s surface, as the pigment is mixed with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E.

For those looking to conceal stretch marks or vitiligo, PrincessBrows can assist by using the same technology. Depending on the treatment area, pricing may vary so reach out to make an appointment; a booking fee of HK$2,000 will also be taken before the appointment.

Winner of the Asian Semi-Permanent Makeup Authority Award, Dean Kim’s clinic offers lip treatments for those who suffer from uneven or pigmented lip colour. As each person’s skin tone and colour differs, all treatments are offered upon consultation. The 3D lip treatment creates the illusion of a fuller pout without Botox injections, leaving customers with a glossy, hue finish. Forget lipstick!
