What's New With Zoe Milan Studios...

Zoe Milan Studios Launches Microblading Training Online Academy

Zoe Milan Studios releases educational program to help aspiring beauty professionals start their own microblading business.

TAMPA, FL – Zoe Milan Studios provides those in the Bay Area with top-tier beauty services, with their industry niche being eyebrow enhancement. Microblading is currently trending across the US due to its remarkable ability to create full, beautiful brows on anyone, even on those whose brow bones are nearly bare. Salon owner Zoe Gillespie has decided to capitalize on this latest beauty craze by launching her own educational program that is equipped with all the right tools to help entrepreneurs looking to break into the beauty industry lay the foundation to a successful microblading business.

From now until December 15th, 2016, those looking to become proficient microblading technicians can join the Microblading Business Mastery online program. Zoe Gillespie, who has years of experience in permanent makeup application, has designed the program for beauty aficionados who seek to make microblading a source of income; even those who have not been previously trained in microblading.

There are three main stages that comprise the Microblading Business Mastery Program: Microblading 101, Microblading Business, and Microblading Marketing. The program also includes access to Zoe Milan Studios Mastermind Webinars, which allow viewers to see Zoe in a professional setting firsthand. Upon completion of the program, participants will be sufficiently prepared to enter a lucrative industry where it is not uncommon to make $5,000 or even $10,000 in revenue each month.

Members of Zoe’s Microblading Mastery Program will receive access to the Microblading Mastery Blueprint Manual and Microblading Business Software Source in addition to their detailed coursework. Those enrolled will also be sent a Microblading Starter Practice Kit that will be used throughout the program, and will also be awarded an official certificate by Zoe Milan Studios after its completion.

“My program is for those seeking a passionate and life-fulfilling career in beauty,” Gillespie said.

Zoe Gillespie has felt the struggle wanting to break into an industry without being equipped with the proper tools and expertise. Rather than pay exorbitant amounts of money for lackluster programs that only teach the technical aspect of microblading or the entrepreneurial side of founding a new business, Zoe proposes that self-driven business hopefuls see what her program has in store for them.

A well-crafted combination of beauty and business knowledge, Zoe’s Microblading Business Mastery course provides participants with microblading basics and teaching methods, tips and trade secrets, information on how to build a successful business from the ground up, marketing insights, and the confidence needed to be successful. Additionally, enrollees will gain access to the private Zoe Milan Academy group on Facebook, making them an exclusive member of a community of likeminded entrepreneurs.

Unlike other courses that are offered online, the Zoe Milan Academy Microblading Business Mastery course allows monthly access to the CEO and founder of Zoe Milan Studios, Zoe Gillespie herself. This is facilitated through webinar mastermind calls where participants can question Zoe about industry secrets, practice methods and specific techniques.

The course will begin on January 15, 2017, and pre-registration closes on December 15, 2016. There are many benefits to register before the deadline: $400 off the program cost, two VIP tickets to the Microblading Live Seminar that will be held in May of 2017 in Tampa, Florida, a limited-edition Zoe Milan Studios V-neck, and two VIP tickets to the premiere of the Zoe Milan Studios movie, which includes a walk on the red carpet and an invitation to the official After Hours Party.

A 30-day money-back guarantee ensures that students who sign up for the Zoe Milan Studios Academy online Microblading Business Mastery course by December 15th will not only save thousands of dollars in costs, but also walk out of the program with the knowledge and confidence that is necessary to start a successful business. Furthermore, they will retain the network of contacts they built by being involved in the Zoe Milan Studios community.

Zoe Milan Studios’ program will set a new standard for microblading education. For passionate individuals with an interest in beauty who want to make a career in the industry, there is no better place to get started. Enrollment is quick and easy, but only available for a limited time.

What is Microblading? Top Trending Beauty Application

Beauty is everywhere in the universe. It is in nature, in art, and in wildlife. Our society places a great emphasis on beauty, and it has even developed into its own industry; people spend hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of dollars in order to look the best that they can.

However, it doesn’t take thousands of dollars in order to drastically increase your overall appearance; the secret lies within the eyebrows. Many women struggle to achieve full, thick brows. At least they did, until now.

One of the booming trends in the beauty industry is microblading, which is the application of permanent makeup onto the eyebrows so they appear more robust. The procedure uses sterilized tools in order to create a sleek, authentic appearance that is indistinguishable from natural brows.

Microblading tattoos the brow area to fill in and shape areas that are lacking fullness. Marks are made in the shape of the brows to blend in with the natural hairs. This creates the illusion of full, natural brows that will retain their shape and color.

The longevity of microblading is not the only benefit; due to the application being so precise, one’s brows can be shaped ideally to complement their facial features. The perfect blend of shape and pigment will leave the recipient with a large boost in confidence as they radiate beauty like never before.

Many people have a fear of permanently marking with their skin with ink, and even more have a fear of the tools that are used to do it. Only trained professionals perform microblading procedures, and extra care is taken to ensure there is as little discomfort as possible for the customer via topical anesthetic.

Nails need to be redone, hair needs to be redone, and makeup obviously needs to be redone. Brows that are augmented through microblading will take virtually no effort to look ideal, leaving you with plenty of other time to focus on whatever other beauty concern needs your attention at the moment.

Microblading is quickly becoming something sought after by beauty enthusiasts due to its quick application and stellar results; the longest part of the microblading procedure is actually setting up the appointment and consulting with the technician to find out what areas of your brows need work.

It is no surprise microblading has turned into the latest beauty craze, and more people than ever before are learning how to become microblading technicians.

How to Create the Perfect Brows

It is imperative to take care of one’s eyebrows in order to present the best appearance possible. For full, defined brows that follow current trends, we sought advice from local beauty professionals on the best way to style brows.

Duality Artistry owner Dani Taverna states “a lot of people are using products that help grow the brow, as well as fiber-filled gels that add volume.” Latisse and neuLash are well-known products that are used to foster growth; however, there are also other similar fiber-based gel products to create brows that are sure to leave people envious. The owner of La Femme Perfumery, Marie Christine St. Pierre, highly recommends Blinc, which is a water-resistant mousse used to tint brows and create more fullness. The product, which is available in a wide range of colors, will remain on until it is removed with eye-makeup remover. Yet another alternative is WunderBrow, a product that uses a gel and fiber combination to give brows a fuller look. Once it is applied, it will last a few days.

Face shape is an important consideration to take when determining how to shape your brows. “If you have a low brow bone, make sure you create space between your lash line and your brow,” Taverna declares. “A lot of people color from the bottom of the brow, [but] to create more space, use your color above the brow line.”

A method that has been garnering attention in recent years is microblading, a process that involves using a tool fitted with small needles to tattoo the skin and create fuller eyebrows. Marie Benson, a microblading and permanent makeup practitioner at The Laser Lounge in Bonita Springs, declares that it is vital to do independent research and find the best, most experienced professional to perform the procedure. It is also important to be aware of the positives and negatives.

Benson said, “I do like the microblading technique. However, few clients are good candidates for it. The skin can only be tattooed so many times in the same spot before it will look messy and eventually reject future pigment.”

The Nouveau Contour device, which uses 18 different needle configurations to provide customers with a realistic brow appearance, is a favorite of Benson’s. “The aspect that makes me prefer this device is that it is very precise and consistent in depth.” According to her, it is a great solution for someone who has scar tissue that has resulted from inexperienced brow tattooing as well as for those who have skin damaged by the sun.

Can Great Eyebrows Change Your Entire Face?

By now we all know that eyebrows matter. The highly sought after “brows on fleek” have sent many of us to the nearest makeup counter in search of the best pencils, brushes, and gels, and even some of us to the salon for some highly-trained professional help.

It may be difficult to recognize the huge impact eyebrows can have on your face and your overall look, but side-by-side photos make the impact of fantastic brows crystal clear. From celebs and models to your neighbor or best friend, eyebrows make all the difference.

Think back to (or Google) what your favorite actress, singer, or talk show host looked like before bold, shapely brows became the hottest beauty trend. Compare this image to what they look like today, and behold the power of brows. compiled a list of the celebrities whose brows have undergone the most dramatic transformations, commenting on the way these brow makeovers have changed entire looks.

Among the most noticeable eyebrow makeovers, according to Instyle, are: Demi Lovato, Kim Kardashian-West, Nicole Richie, Gwen Stefani, Angelina Jolie, Drew Barrymore, and the Olsen twins.

So, how exactly do you go about completely transforming your brows? Anyone with an ounce of concern for their eyebrows knows this process can be both tricky and frustrating, but is almost always worth the stress.

Give Your Brows Time
It takes between three and four weeks for a complete “growth cycle” of brow hair. If you’re hoping to gain some shape in your brows, be patient and let your hair grow. During the growth process, you can use concealer above and beneath the brows to hide any stray or unwanted hairs. After the few weeks have passed, visit a professional to talk shape and style. Threading and waxing are the grooming favorites at the moment, and a salon or spa is the best place to professionally reshape your brows.

You can also take reshaping into your own hands; but, go easy on tweezing and trimming. Remember that plucking too much hair from your brows will mean more waiting to achieve your “fleek” look. Again, patience is key. If you’re nervous about plucking or need some inspiration, consider purchasing brow stencils, available at most beauty stores.

Consider Semi-Permanent Options
Growing your natural brow hair to the desired thickness and length can be painstaking, and for some, impossible. Semi-permanent brow treatments, like microblading and dying are becoming are increasingly popular as the emphasis on eyebrows grows. Microblading involves using a fine-point handheld tool to implant colored pigment into the top layer of skin. The results are very natural looking, well defined brows that last between 12 and 18 months. Semi-permanent dyes can help make your brows darker, and usually last a few months.

Brow Grooming Made Simple

You don’t need to be a beauty guru or makeup junkie to have eyebrows on your radar. As one of the top beauty topics today, eyebrows are on everyone’s mind and eyebrow products are on nearly every store’s shelves.

With so many techniques, products, and discussions involving eyebrows, thinking about making yours the best they can be can seem very overwhelming or out of reach. But, it certainly doesn’t have to be.

How should you shape your brows? Plucking, waxing, and threading seem to be the most popular mainstream options. So, which is right for you?

Each method can be used to shape your natural brows to your liking. The method you choose, or the combination of methods, is really up to personal preference.

Plucking your eyebrows is the cheapest and simplest option available. All you need to pluck and groom is a pair of tweezers, and maybe a eyebrow stencil, if you are aiming to create a totally new shape. Tweezing is also a great option for those with sensitive skin or low pain thresholds, which don’t pair well with waxing and threading techniques.

Waxing is praised for being quick and mostly painless. Though some discomfort is involved, the pain from waxing lasts only a second or too, which has helped the technique gain fame as the least painful eyebrow grooming option. While it is not recommended to wax your own eyebrows, getting waxed at a spa or salon is usually relatively inexpensive.

Threading has recently grown in popularity and is now known for achieving a super sharp angle, due to the accuracy and precision the thread allows for. While the process is somewhat painful (depending on your tolerance), the thread removes hairs in lines, allowing the technician to remove the annoying fluffy hairs you may miss with tweezers. You probably won’t be able to thread your own eyebrows, but again, this technique tends to be easy on the wallet at salons and threading stations.

Bella Thorne’s Glitter Eyebrows — Love Or Loathe?

Bella Thorne has taken her eyebrows to a level never seen before! Halloween came early this year as the actress showed off her new eyebrows, which were decorated in pink glitter. Here are the details on her festive appearance; be sure to let us know what you think about it!

Bella Thorne is creating an enormous buzz in the beauty community right now. The 18-year-old actress showcased her dazzling pink eyebrows through Snapchat, and it certainly got a lot of attention.

It isn’t surprising that Bella shared her cat eyeliner and shimmering brows on her social media, as she frequently posts step-by-step makeup tutorials. This isn’t the first time she’s used glitter on her brows, either: Bella wore silver sparkles under her eyebrows while at the Coachella music festival.

Unlike the last time, though, glitter completely covers her eyebrows now. She may have been celebrating Halloween a little early, but that’s fine. We feel the glitter look is great for the holiday season, and could look amazing in silver or gold.

All natural adhesive by Lit Cosmetics Water-Resistant Glitter Base is a great product to make sure you nail Bella’s look. After applying adhesive, place loose glitter throughout your brows and wait for it to dry; it’s that easy.

How much do you like Bella’s shimmering eyebrows? For more information regarding Bella’s new eyebrows, [Click Here].

Microblading Q&A

It’s no secret that the latest beauty trend is thick, shapely eyebrows. But, for those of us not born with a healthy supply of eyebrow hair and patience, achieving beautiful brows can be somewhat of a tedious and/or discouraging process.

But, thanks to innovative beauty experts, you can now achieve the brows of your dreams with a little cash and very little time. Say hello to microblading.

What is microblading?

Microblading is a modern form of semi-permanent makeup. The process involves pigment being implanted into the top layer of skin in fin, hair-like strokes. A trained technician uses a hand-held blade with a very fine tip to help give you the brows you’ve always wanted, whether that be filling in your natural shape or totally recreating your look.

How does it work?

Microblading shares some characteristics with tattooing, but is different in that no machines or pre-printed designs are used. It is a very customized and relatively painless procedure.

A permanent makeup specialist will help you decide what shape is best for you and will draw that design onto your face before the microblading process ever begins. You have the freedom to suggest adjustments and tweaks, until the look is right for you.

Then, the technician will apply numbing cream to the brow area and begin the procedure, using a pigment that matches the shade of your natural brows.

How long do the results last?

Like any other customized procedure, results vary from person to person, depending on skin type, lifestyle, and a number of other factors. For most people, though, results from microblading last between 12 and 18 months. That’s 365 days or more of no pencils, powder, or gels.

The color will be slightly darker than your hair in the days immediately following your microblading procedure, but will fade to match your natural color in just a short time. Most specialists suggest you come back four to six weeks after the initial procedure for a touch-up, and after that your brows are good to go for an entire year.

What Shape Should Your Eyebrows Be?

Eyebrows are perhaps the most identifiable facial feature. If your eyebrows are the one of the first things people notice about you, it is important that their compliments your face shape and bone structure, helping you to put your best face forward everyday.

Whether your face is heart-shaped, oval, or anywhere in between, we have the identified the brow looks that will work best for you!

Heart Shape
Those with heart-shaped faces should look to their brows to balance the angles of their facial features. A slightly arched, rounded brow will help to balance the point of the chin and give the face an overall softer look.

Square faces are characterized by stronger jaw lines. To help draw attention to the top half of the face, create a soft curve between the middle and tail end of the brows. A gentle arch will ensure that no hard facial lines are accentuated.

Oval faces have the most options when it comes to brow looks. There is balance inherently present in the oval shape, so you can get away with almost any look. Be careful not to overly arch the brows in an upward point, however, as this can draw the face out, making it look too long.

Round faces benefit from an angular brow shape. Keeping your brows fuller with a gently defined arch helps to provide more angles to your face and can help make the face appear less full.

Remember, everybody’s faces (and brows) are different! The best part about the recent eyebrow sensation is that is has opened so many windows of opportunity for learning about brows, finding new methods of shaping them, and discovering the best techniques and looks for your face and personal style.

To be sure your brows are working in your favor, consider visiting a trained brow technician who can help you pinpoint the best look and work with you as you continue to grow or reshape your brows. For more information on what eyebrow shape is right for you, [Click Here].

Are you brave enough to tattoo your brows? The microblading technique that transforms your face

A recent trend has been observed in women: as they age, they become more and more likely to spontaneously get a tattoo.

It seems as if the notion behind this phenomenon is that tattoos will somehow preserve the youth of an aging woman. It doesn’t make much sense to me, but I’m currently minutes away from getting tattooed.

Don’t worry; I’m not getting some obnoxiously huge eagle across my chest. Instead, I’m getting my eyebrows tattooed. Karen Betts, Britain’s renowned Brow Queen, stands over me with her needle, anxiously waiting to give me my first taste of ink.

Given my fear of needles, I still can’t believe I’m going through with this. My forehead has been numbed with cream, but it doesn’t completely alleviate my distress.

“Out of ten, how badly does this hurt?”

Karen assured me that would be about a four or a five. At first I would feel pain, but after a few minutes, I would only feel a scraping sensation.

My excitement overshadowed my fear of the discomfort of the procedure. I had longed for great eyebrows; they had previously seemed like an impossible attainment, but now, here was my opportunity.

Karen has over 20 years of experience. She is so experienced, in fact, that she trains other beauticians how to perfect brow shaping with permanent make-up.

Permanent ink in the beauty industry isn’t just for make-up, however; Karen is also proficient at medical tattooing, which is a service sought after by cancer patients and those with burns or scars.

I take a deep breath and do my best to convince myself not to back out now.

Now, it’s time to decide: how dark do I want them? What effect do I want them to have?

To convey my desires as accurately as I can, I tell Karen that I want my eyebrows to look like a cross between Angelina and Nigella. However, I do not want Cara Delevigne.

She draws eyebrows on me to ensure that she captured the look perfectly, and perfectly she did. They looked good enough for me to go home that moment, but we had work to do.

One would think that the easiest part would be cleaning up my eyebrow shape through plucking. Unfortunately, I am almost in tears after she begins. I should have told her beforehand that I have an extremely low pain tolerance in that area.

“We’re just going to do a bit of threading,” and a “bit” of threading sure translated into a whole lot of pain.

“That’s the worst part,” she declares. She goes on to say that the actual treatment is usually less painful for most people. I, however, am not most people.

Although I am rife with fear as she begins, it all soon dissolves. There’s no loud, obnoxious buzzing from the machine. There’s hardly any pain at all. Everything is quiet to the point where it is almost soothing.

She makes tiny, narrow cuts into my eyebrows with her special tool, where she then places the ink. She refers to this practice as “microblading.”

She wipes each brow a few times. Then, something amazing happened: she was finished!

While it is referred to as “permanent make-up,” it isn’t entirely permanent.

Over the next year and a half, the ink will fade slightly, so it is recommended to have the area touched up at least once every 12 months.

I was never any good at putting make-up on. Red lipstick and dark shades were the furthest I ever really went. I also never had any idea on how to handle my eyebrows, which were always some ambiguous shade of beige.

It is said that eyebrows provide structure to the entire face. If this saying is true, then I was in desperate need of refurbishing. I can’t draw them myself, because every time I do it looks like a child got loose with a pencil and I was the victim.

Unfortunately for me, given my ineptness at beautifying myself, I was never able to make my eyebrows “work.” Karen insists that the right brows can enhance the appearance of the entire face.

I don’t anticipate that great of a change, given that they are just eyebrows after all. Then, however, she holds up the mirror, and I see my reflection.

I was amazed. I had no idea the difference would be anything more than marginal. I simply could not believe how much better they looked. Eyebrows truly do provide structure to the face.

The color difference between my brows and the ink was nearly indiscernible!

It is important to choose the right individual to go to for this type of service; someone inexperienced could literally scar you for life.

As I compared the before and after photos, I could immediately see differences in how my face looked. I looked more vibrant, and maybe even a little firmer. Nigella would definitely approve. For more information regarding tattooing your eyebrows, [Click Here].

Want perfect, long-lasting eyebrows? Microblading is Your Answer.

Natural, full, shapely brows are very hard to come by (we’re looking at you Cara Delevingne), so most of us turn to cosmetic products day-in and day-out to enhance the brows we were born with. It can be stressful, and even quite annoying, to worry about creating natural-looking, even brows from gels and pencils everyday.

The latest in permanent makeup trends could be the answer to our eyebrow prayers. Microblading, a semi-permanent way to achieve effortless full brows, has caught on in celebrity circles and trickled down to the mainstream. From Bella Thorne to the women in your neighborhood, microblading is changing the way we do and see eyebrows.

During the microblading process, a trained technician uses a small handheld tool, equipped with several tiny needles at the end, to implement pigment into the first layer of skin. By making fine, hair-like strokes, the technician can fill in any sparse brow areas, or even create a totally new set of brows for those dealing with hair loss or illness.

While microblading is a form of tattooing, the tool makes all the difference in the end-result. Unlike traditional permanent makeup, which typically looks smooth and somewhat blurred, the results from microblading are very defined and look as close to real hair as you can get.

After you’ve had your brows microbladed, there is very little maintenance to worry about. You won’t have to worry about your brows smudging or wearing off in the pool, at the gym, or any other time at all. You will have to moisturize the area and keep your brows protected from the sun, especially while your skin is healing.

The microblading process itself lasts between an hour and two hours depending on your technician, and the price varies by salon and region of the world. But, overall the procedure will save you time from drawing on and filling in your eyebrows everyday, and give you a brow-confidence you’ve never had before. Instead, the full, bold brows you achieve from microblading will last between a year and 18 months, with touch-ups required as your technician recommends.

If you’re unsure about the procedure, or have more questions about what your brows will look like after, don’t be afraid to set up a consultation with an experienced technician. He or she can work with you to calm your nerves, draw on a shape perfect for your facial structure, and can make any adjustments you’d like to see to fit your personal style.
