All you need to know before microblading your eyebrows



Nothing is so fly as having the perfect eyebrow. Most people struggle with drawing their brows and sometimes, end up paying a lot for it.

Your makeup cannot look chic without a perfect eyebrow. In order to avoid the constant struggle of drawing eyebrows, many have opted for the microblading option.

Microblading is a form of semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing. It is an artificial, realistic-looking method of filling in your brows.

It differs from tattooing in that microblading is semi-permanent, unlike getting tattooed brows. Below are some things you should know before microblading:

1. Good technician

Getting your brows to look the way you want starts by picking the right microblading artist. The best way to make sure you’re getting someone with the right skills is to read reviews and look at their client’s “before” and “after” pictures. Make sure that the artist does the kind of brows you are looking for (manicured, messy looking, sparse and natural, very dense, etc.). If the artist doesn’t have photos of healed work on their website or social media accounts like Instagram or Facebook, please ask for healed photos as it’ll show you exactly what to expect for the end result. Don’t because of cheap artwork damage your brows. Do your research.

2. Note your skin type

If you have sensitive skin, you may not be a good candidate for the treatment. It can leave you with more inflamed, swollen skin that takes longer to heal. The dryer the skin is the crisper and defined the microblade hair-like strokes will heal. Oily skin can give a more powdery result if the brow area is too oily. If you have oily skin, follow your technician’s aftercare instructions, and blot the forehead several times a day to remove excess oils, which will help you avoid a powdery effect. Oily skin requires special skincare and special considerations when microblading. It could fade a little quicker and they’ll need more touch-ups. The strokes might also expand a little more than someone who doesn’t have oily skin. Speak to your technician to know the right treatment.

3. May hurt a bit

There is typically numbing cream applied to the area before the procedure, but expect it to be uncomfortable and even sore once the cream wears off at home. Some people are affected greatly by the sting of a bee, while others wouldn’t notice. That is the same when it comes to microblading, it depends on your level of sensitivity, but most people find it as a slight irritant rather than a painful process.
