Empowering Breast Cancer Warriors


Breast cancer patients often face a unique set of challenges on so many levels, physical, mental and emotional. The battle with cancer and the subsequent treatment scan lead to hair loss, including the eyebrows. For many women, maintaining or regaining their normal look helps in boosting their self-confidence and a sense of normalcy, which is essential for their healing process.


Powder brows unveiled


Powder brows are the latest in brow shaping and tinting techniques and the most natural looking; this technique offers a path to regaining confidence and reclaiming control over one’s appearance especially for breast cancer warriors whose brows disappear with medical treatments.

The powder brows technique is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that aims to create a soft, powdered appearance on the eyebrows. Unliketraditional eyebrow tattooing, which can result in harsh and unnatural lines, powder brows mimic the look of softly applied eyebrow powder or pencil.

This technique involves the application of tiny dots of pigment to the skin’s surface, in different densities to gradually build up colour, with a minimal down time and healing process. The final result is subtle and soft brows that compliment eyes and facial features.
