After taking some time off after giving birth (it never sounds quite right saying “time off” as looking after newborns is round the clock hard work!), Wendy is returning to Elegant Lashes.

From November, Wendy is available for Cosmetic Tattooing appointments at our Bondi Junction salon. This is great news for our returning clients wanting to book back in for a brow refresh and also for our clients new to cosmetic tattooing as Wendy is able to perform all Cosmetic Tattooing treatments for the eyes and brows including Feather Brows, Ombre Brows, Powder Brows, Saline Removal, Eyeliner, Inner Eyeliner and Smokey Eyeliner.

Wendy is particularly skilled at getting colour to hold on tricky skin types. Such as oily skin, older skin and Fitzpatrick V and Fitzpatrick VI skin types.

Cosmetic Tattooing consultations are free and there is no obligation to book afterwards.

Feather Brows

Feather Brows


Hair strokes can be created by a microblade tool or a digital machine. So what is the difference? Is one better than the other for feather brow tattooing?

Both microblading and the digital machine with a skilled practitioner will produce crisp lines and both can produce great results however the digital machine has many advantages over the microblade.

We’ve been specialising in feather brows for 5 years, in fact, one of the first salons in Sydney to do so. We have performed thousands of feather brow tattoos and continually update our training. From our experience and knowledge the digital machine is better and this is why:

The depth into the skin in which the pigment is placed is accurately measured by the action of the machine, which you just can’t do by hand with a microblade tool, and this creates a line that is consistent in depth and colour until it tapers off to the tip of the hair stroke.

Feather Brows with Digital Machine

The digital machine punctures the hair stokes into the skin whereas a microblade scratches a hairline across the skin. Cosmetic tattooing is a semi permanent treatment and most clients get a refresh once a year. If you get microblading done, multiple treatments of scratching the same area could lead to scarring. This is avoided with a digital machine application.

Microblading doesn’t often work with oily the skin. The colour doesn’t hold as well and in some cases may not take at all. So we always recommend a digital machine for feather brows to avoid this from happening.

Microblading often does not last as long as cosmetic tattooing with a digital machine and this is attributed to the shallowness of the application in comparison and the inconsistency in depth from applying the hair strokes manually.

So these are the advantages of a digital machine; consistent, even hair strokes, a colour that will hold longer even with oily skin, and avoiding the risk of scarring.


Now we are heading to winter it’s the perfect time to get your brows feathered. The sun is weak and the days are short, optimal for healing and hiding in the first couple of days when the colour can appear slightly darker!

Book in with Raman or Wendy, our feather brow specialists, for a free consultation, and as always, there is no obligation to book afterwards. Jump on our Instagram to check out our work.


Want your lashes to last longer? Keep them clean and the oil at bay with a lash shampoo. Mal and Merryn discovered this beauty innovation in lash retention when they recently went down to the Melbourne Beauty Expo.

Here’s a great little vid from renown make up artist Jenny Do showing you how to use it.


Do you know we do threading? Mal and Raman provide threading and it’s available at both salons. Threading is great for those with naturally sensitive skin, or those using retinol or AHA products. Same price as waxing services.

Sick of the smudges?

If you are using eye makeup every day or prefer a low fuss beauty regime, an eyeliner tattoo may be for you.

Cosmetic tattooing is a popular beauty secret amongst those in fashion and beauty. A simple search on Instagram for #cosmetictattooing or #eyelinertattoo and it’s quick to see it’s popularity.

Eyeliner tattoo is waterproof, smudge free and low fuss. You can get eyeliner tattoo within the lash line [see image above] for beautiful, natural definition or above the lash line, with or without wings. Best of all the eyeliner will be even. No more wonky wings! You can also get the eyeliner tattoo along the lower eyelid or without.

A qualified and experienced cosmetic tattooist will provide you with a thorough consultation to discuss your suitability and the design of the eyeliner. The eyeliner shape will be drawn on with make up so you can see what the finished result will look like.

Eyeliner is mostly done with a black pigment, which is specially formulated for cosmetic tattooing and will fade after a few years. No body tattooing inks or equipment should ever be used for cosmetic tattooing.

Eyeliner tattoo is semi permanent and will last 2 to 4 years. With numbing cream the treatment is not painful. Most clients say they feel a tickling sensation at the start of the procedure.

An eyeliner tattoo will cost approximately $350.


Here’s a taste of what a Lip Blush cosmetic tattoo can look like. This pretty pink was selected to match our client’s skin tone and has created the effect of naturally fuller lips. A lip blush tattoo is contourless. This means no hard edge or lip liner effect for the ultimate in subtle enhancement. Simply beautiful.


We have 50 free VIP passes for 1 week of unlimited classes at Xtend Barre Parramatta to give away. Xtend Barre is a mix of dance and pilates and will give you an extra boost of energy and strength, as well as toning your body.
