Wishing you had more brows? Don’t we all. Today, bushy eyebrows are the hottest trend in town and every girl is striving to have them. But how do you get them? While there are several different ways you can fake fuller eyebrows, one of the most popular procedures today is called microblading. But what is microblading and is it really worth all the trouble? Let’s take a look:
What is Microblading?
Microblading goes by several different names – embroidery, micro stroking, cosmetic tattooing, and the list goes on and on. But regardless of what you want to call it, microblading is essentially a form of semi-permanent makeup. The procedure uses a small pen-tipped needle to deliver pigmentation into the skin. The difference between microblading and other permanent makeup techniques is that it uses a variety of small, delicate strokes to actually mimic the hair on the eyebrows. This makes the results more natural looking than other techniques.
Is it worth the trouble?
To decide, let’s take a look at the pros and cons:
-Bolder, thicker, natural looking brows
-Lasts up to 3 years without needing touch-ups
-Results are only semi-permanent so you can change up your look with the trends
-Because the skin is being penetrated, infection is a risk
-The technician could mess up, leaving you with 3 years of terrifying brows
-The process can be painful
So is it worth the trouble? We say yes – as long as you choose a good technician. Yes, we said there is a risk of infection, but if you choose an experienced technician those chances are greatly reduced. The same thing goes for terrifying brows, if you choose the right technician, you shouldn’t end up with horrifying results. As for the pain, just take a painkiller beforehand and apply some numbing cream – you will be fine. The results of fuller, natural looking brows will totally be worth it! Like they always say “beauty is pain!”
