Eyebrow Microblading – Would you
Just wondering if anyone has had this done? “Microblading is a form of tattooing. Unlike a regular tattoo, “microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine” Can last up to 3 years. I love the idea of not having to “do” eyebrows everyday. The results look great. It is rather pricey up to $1000.00 depending on who does it. What is your favorite eyebrow secret weapon?
FULL FAMOUS BROWS
NOW (Love this makeup artistry for hooded eyes!)
My aunt was having her eyeliner tattooed and said it hurt so bad that she couldn’t let the person finish! I still haven’t seen what she ended up with.
I’d never have that procedure, even if it was just $1.00. I don’t feel that doing my brows is that big of a to do. I use 3 products, a brow powder, YBF pencil, and a brow mascara. I never knew exactly how long it took me, so I timed myself today. It took only 2 1/2 minutes. I made sure I didn’t try to do it faster, just did it at my normal pace. Who ain’t got time for that?
I have only had my brows threaded once and thought it was very painful. Waxing isn’t exactly pain-free but it’s much faster. I don’t think the threading lasted any longer than waxing.
I try to keep up with plucking but I have a very hard time seeing the sides. So I let a pro get them in nice shape with waxing and then maintain for as long as I can.
I don’t think I’d ever go for any of the more “permanent” ways because of what all of you have said, once it’s done it’s there for a very long time and if they make a mistake you’re out of luck.
If I didn’t have any brows at all – perhaps I would consider the more permanent ways but as long as I have any of my own brows there are so many products on the market to help improve their looks I don’t see me taking a chance on a botched job.
I have nice eye brows but every 6 weeks I get them threaded to stay in shape:heart:
It takes less then 5 minutes to get done.:womanhappy: No pain:womansurprised:
Personally, I would not do microblading. 3 years is a long time for a bad job to dissapear – even eyebrow tatoo’s dissapear and lighten over time. I’ve seen some really bad jobs.
A few years back I was getting facials from an aesthetician who was so artistic and talented at tatooing eyebrows. I saw many of her client’s and their eyebrows were so natural looking – just beautiful.
I was so impressed I scheduled an appointment to have it done but chickened out and panicked the day before!!:womansurprised: I will stick to the pencil no matter what.:womanvery-happy:
I would never have microblading. Not only does it sound painful, I would be afraid that I might not like the results. I prefer to do my own eyebrows. If I make a mistake with the eyebrow pencil, I can fix it. Three years is a long time to be dissatified with your appearance.
I would never ever get this done! Fortunately I do not have thin eyebrows.
I would make sure first that I went to a very ” reputable” place to have it done & I would want to see a catalog of example of their work.I would also want to know & have facts of how long they have been performing this procedure. Most places will ask their clients if it is ok to do a “before & after”pic to place in a catalog to show future clients & a lot of customers are ok with this.
The reason I state this is last Fall I was shopping in Ulta & was chatting with a lady who had it done & unfortunately she did not do the “homework’ before getting the procedure done. She had it done on a whim & I didn’t at all want to hurt her feelings so I said nothing. She brought it to my attention as I was in the mascara/brow dept of the store. She was so upset & I really felt bad for her. Her eyebrows were a bluish black & this lady had blonde hair so it actually looked horrid & whomever performed the procedure didn’t give her a nice natural arch either so she had a bluish black surprised look for brows & now she has to wait until it dissipates. She was trying to shop for brow pencil to lighten her brow as well as cover up to bring the brow down a bit to get rid of the “surprised” look of the too high brow. I felt really bad for her & hoped the girl at the benefit counter did her best to help this lady.
If anyone has this done I would love to hear of your results 🙂
