Carnival Season Makeup Tips

Carnival Season Makeup Tips

Carnival SeasonThe Carnival season in New Orleans is not a sprint, it is a marathon!

When putting on your makeup when heading out to the parade route, you never really know how long you will stay out there. You will most likely be at the parade for hours. The weather in New Orleans, especially during the Carnival season, can be very unpredictable. It can be freezing cold or scorching hot, and there is always the chance for a shower that wasn’t predicted. These conditions can wreak havoc on your Carnival makeup. Keep it light and make sure whatever you are wearing is waterproof.  Another option is permanent or semi-permanent makeup. Dina Basman offers exclusive permanent makeup and microblading.

Lips Aftercare Tips

Lips Aftercare Tips

LipsOnce you have had your permanent lip makeup procedure done, there are a few things you should know to make sure your lips heal correctly and get the best possible results. Expect your lips to be swollen and very tender for the first couple of days after the procedure. The swelling should go down within the next couple of days. Don’t be surprised if your lips get very chapped on day 3 or 4. Here are some of Dina Basman’s aftercare tips for you:

What You Should Do

Right after the procedure, it is important to keep your lips clean and moist. It is best to use a clean, cool and wet washcloth to gently wipe your lips. Do not use your fingers when applying your post-cream products. Only use a cotton swab to apply the cream. Make sure not to touch, rub, scratch, pick or peel your lips. One week after the procedure you can start wearing sun protection, moisturizer or lip balm to protect your new color.

What Not To Do

You won’t be able to apply makeup around the treated area for at least 10 days. For two weeks after the procedure, you won’t be able to go swimming in a pool. Saunas, hot baths and hot tubs should also be avoided for two weeks. You will not be able to sun tan or saloon tan for at least two weeks. There are also certain foods you won’t be able to enjoy for two weeks. Those foods include spicy foods, milk, citrus or acidic juices and alcohol. Do not smoke for at least two weeks after you had your lips done.

Microblading Aftercare Tips

Microblading Aftercare Tips

Once you had your microblading or permanent makeup procedure done, there are a few things you should know to make sure your brows heal right and you get the best possible results. Here are some aftercare tips for you:

How To Clean Your Face

The most important thing is to keep your brows clean and dry. Do not get them wet. Wash your face carefully around the brows without getting water on the treated area. If you feel you have some dust on your brows, wipe them gently with an alcohol wipe. Before cleaning your face, make sure to wash your hands with a disinfectant soap. Apply the post-care cream or oil before washing your face. When applying your post-care cream, do not use your fingers, use cotton swabs gently. Do not wash your face with alkaline soaps for at least five to seven days. Do not wipe your face with a towels for 15- 21 days. In general, do not rub your brows, or pick on them, as you could get an infection. Your brows will probably start peeling in the second phase of your recovery, still do not peel or pick the skin. Also, try to keep your hair away from your brows for at least 7 days. Furthermore, you won’t be able to wear makeup or anti-aging creams on your brows for at least ten days.

Activities To Avoid

For at least two weeks after your procedure, avoid any activities that will make you sweat, including sports, hot saunas or hot tubs. You also won’t be able to go swimming in a swimming pool. The chlorine in the water can change the tone of the color pigments. Sun bathing (or going to a tanning salon) should be avoided for at least two weeks after the procedure.

You won’t be able to have any laser, chemical treatments or peelings done. Furthermore, do not use creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic Acid on your face or neck. Heavy household cleaning, working in your garage, or basement, or other areas where you could come in contact with a lot of airborne debris must be avoided in order to prevent infections.

Foods & Alcohol

Stay away from spicy foods, do not smoke and don’t drink alcohol in excess. Drinking alcohol could actually slow down the healing process.

If you are not sure about certain activities or have questions about the aftercare instructions, contact your microblading or permanent makeup professional.

How To Prepare For Your Microblading Appointment

How To Prepare For Your Microblading Procedure

What Is MicrobladingYou have decided to get your brows microbladed.  Eyebrow microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo procedure where a special handheld microblading eyebrow pen is used to implant pigment under the epidermis. The specially designed fine blade is three times thinner than the blade used in a tattooing machine. This allows for the creation of very fine, crisp, realistic hair strokes that do not blur after healing.​ But, before you have the procedure done, there are a few things you should avoid for the best possible results.

What You Need To Know

Dina Basman has certifications in permanent makeup from East Asia, Central Asia, Europe, Eastern Europe and the U.S. and has worked with some of the best permanent makeup artists from around the world. Her training and experience have led to the most outstanding makeup artists in the area. Here a few of her recommendations on what to do and what not do the days before your treatment:

  • Do not work out on the day of the procedure
  • Do not drink too much coffee on the day of the procedure
  • Do not tan  (no sun) for one week prior to the procedure
  • Do not take aspirin, niacin, vitamin E or ibuprofen 24 hours before the procedure
  • Do not drink alcohol the night before, or the day of the procedure
  • Waxing or tinting of the eyebrows should be done at least 3 days before the procedure
  • No Botox 4 weeks prior to the procedure
  • Stop using any Retin-A or AHA products for two weeks prior to the procedure
  • No laser or chemical peels for one month prior to the procedure
  • No microdermabrasion or dermaplaning for two weeks prior to the procedure

If you have any questions about how to prepare best for your microblading appointment give Dina a call!

Permanent Makeup And Summer

Permanent Makeup And SummerSummer is here and you wonder if the powder brows, permanent eyeliner or permanent lip color you just got will be able to hold up during your trip to the beach. There are a few things you should know before you start enjoying the summer sun and the beach.

Summer Sun And Permanent Makeup

The summer sun can have some impact on your permanent makeup especially if you just had the procedure done. Right after you get your permanent makeup, you will need some time to heal. During that time, you will want to keep dirt and bacteria away from the healing area which means no pool or ocean for you. In general, avoid all dirty work, including lawn mowing or other yard work.  You will also want to avoid the sun since your eyes might be sensitive to light, so bring your sunglasses when heading outside. They will also protect the fresh color. After two weeks or so (consult with your permanent makeup expert), the area should be completely healed and you should be able to resume your normal activities.

As you know, the procedures are semi-permanent which means they will last one to two years. Unfortunately, sun exposure can affect the rate at which the pigments, that were inserted into your skin,  are broken down. So when heading to the pool or the beach wear sunglasses and maybe a sun hat. If you have any questions about your permanent makeup after care, contact an specialist!

Is Permanent Lip Liner Right For Me?

Lip Liner with blendingIs Permanent Lip Liner Right For Me?

Permanent lip liner is a natural appearing permanent cosmetic lip definer. It can be applied to give more definition, correct uneven lips, which will result in a fuller appearance. The procedure also helps prevent lipstick from bleeding and can minimize the appearance of wrinkles.

Why You Will Love It

Lips are the most attractive feature of the face after the eyes. Keeping your lips looking fresh will give your entire face a more youthful appearance. Applying lip liner can be a hassle, if you don’t get it right you have to start all over again. This can become a problem in the morning especially if you wake up 30 minutes late and you need to rush out the door. Having permanent lip liner can shave valuable time off your makeup routine. Furthermore, you will have perfectly lined lips every morning.  If you have sensitive skin or allergies, finding the right product that does not make you break out can be tricky. You went through all the work of applying lip liner or lipstick, only to find the products on your water bottle or wine glass after only two sips. Not only will permanent lip liner withstand the wine glass test, it will also stick with you during your active lifestyle. Even after a day of swimming, diving or surfing, your lips will still look perfect.
