There has been a recent increase in make-up tutorials on the internet. Most of these are eyebrow tutorials as people have realized that when it comes to makeup, eyebrows are everything. As opposed to what people assume, eyebrows are more than just a step in the morning makeup routine. They are a crucial part in facial recognition and in make-up, they play a huge part in the success of your makeup.
Having great eyebrows to frame the face is an important part in your overall beauty even as you age. Microblading is the secret to getting natural looking eyebrows that won’t have you struggling with the brush every morning.
So, what is microblading?
Microblading is a new semi-permanent makeup technique. It’s a manual process where pigments are inserted into the upper layers of the skin on your eyebrows. Through this process, you can easily recreate the desired fullness and shape of your eyebrows. This leaves the eyebrows looking more natural and you don’t have to stress about using the brush every morning.
Think of microblading as a technique where your eyebrows are tattooed on your skin. The effects of microblading can last up to 12 months or more depending on the skin type, and how well it was done. After the pigment fades, it leaves your eyebrows intact as they were before microblading.
Why should you try microblading?
If you are one of those people who believe eyebrows make up a huge part of your morning or everyday makeup, then you need to consider microblading. You can choose to use a brush every morning to fill the sparse areas on your brows creating the illusion of thick eyebrows. Alternatively, you can do microblading and all this hassle is gone.
Take a better look at your eyebrows. Do you prefer a fuller and more natural look but the brush can’t quite do it? if so, then microblading is going to solve all your problems. The worry of having thick eyebrows and then they fade off during the day is also solved by microblading.
It is however recommended that you have a healthy skin before going for microblading. The process requires traumatizing the skin on the brow area and if you have unhealthy skin, the results are unpredictable and might not be satisfying.
Does it hurt and how long will it take to heal?
When people hear of any facial treatment that sounds like a process or procedure, they shy away because they think it hurts. The good news with microblading is that it doesn’t hurt even a bit.

However, if you want to experience the best treatment and no pain, its recommended that you go to an expert. Someone who does microblading as a full time job or as their main stay job. A skilled and well trained eyebrow artist to be precise.
