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.
