What could be the secret to perfectly symmetrical brows at 8 AM in the morning? Do people wake up hours earlier to look this flawless and put together? These were just some of the questions I was asking myself whenever I saw someone early in the morning looking like they’ve been up for hours applying makeup to perfection. This little tip might be able to save you hundreds of dollars and shave hours off your morning beauty routine.
The new trend is called microblading and is essentially an microblading near me. Yes, you heard me correctly, people are actually getting their eyebrows tattooed these days! Microblading is a specialized technique where the technician will implant pigment (instead of ink) into the skin to create thin hair-like strokes resembling your actual eyebrow hairs. I am someone who was not blessed with full defined brows and usually spend a good 30 minutes beating my face before rushing out for work. Now if someone told me that I could just tattoo the perfect symmetrical shapes onto my face, it’d be a game changer. I’ve actually seen multiple people with microblading done and you honestly can’t tell the difference. The end product looks so natural and real it is shocking. Many microblading studios even go as far to do powder microblading which closely resembles eyebrows with ombre makeup. It starts light at the beginning of the brow and gets progressively darker towards the arch and tip. Truly amazing artistry and to think that you can get eyebrows that look like flawless makeup tattooed on permanently is crazy to imagine! Now, there is a catch to this permanent makeup and that is that it is only semi-permanent as it fades over time. They say it typically lasts anywhere from 1 to 3 years depending on the person and their skin type. Oilier skin types tend to last shorter because of the overactive oil glands. So it is recommended that you get a follow up treatment done as it begins to fade to maintain the full look. Now, this also means that you are not committed to this one shape forever. If the eyebrow trends were to change next year, you would not be stuck with the microbladed brows forever. It is still a good investment though, because you would save a lot of money on brow products which usually only last a month or two at most. This procedure is a bit on the pricier side but I trust that the price is a good indication of the technician’s level of skill and techniques. It is important to research the technician you want to trust to tattoo on your brows. You’ve seen the microblading gone wrong testimonials and that is definitely something you want to avoid. Microblading all in all seems like a great investment into yourself and your appearance especially if you have sparse eyebrows and end up spending a lot of time and money into the products you use to create your brows every day! This will end up saving you a lot of stress and frustration in trying to create symmetrical brows with a hand that may not be so steady every day!
