All you need to do is step outside or turn on your TV to notice that full eyebrows are seriously on trend right now. From the “it” girls in Hollywood to the cashiers ringing you up at your local retail store, it is hard to ignore the dark, dramatic eyebrows that are all around us. This is great news for some, but for those of us who over-plucked in the 2000s or are just fair-haired, keeping up with the fashion can add some serious time to our makeup routine.
If you are sick of having to pencil in your eyebrows every time you leave the house or worry about whether or not they will run in a rainstorm or after the gym, it might be time to follow the masses and consider microblading.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo technique that fills out and shapes eyebrows by drawing fine lines that resemble individual hairs. The procedure is done using a hand-held tool that looks like a pen with tiny needles at the tip. The lines are then drawn on with care and precision to create natural-looking, fuller eyebrows.
What should I expect?
When you arrive at your appointment, your provider will spend time talking with you and working with the contours of your face to sketch out where the pigment will go. Before starting, a numbing cream will be applied to the area to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. There is no downtime necessary after microblading, but it may take a few days for swelling and redness to subside.
How long does it last?
The color should be completely set about a month after the procedure, and it may be recommended to come back in once for a touch-up. The results should last anywhere from 1 to 3 years. You now have semi-permanent hassle-free brows!
