Permanent makeup has been a big trend lately with people doing all sorts of tattooing, including eye shadow, lip tint, and microblading.
It’s not for everyone obviously, but if you barely have any eyebrow hair and it takes a massive part of your morning routine just to draw on your eyebrows, it’s probably a good option. Maybe you don’t want to get late to work every day because you had to get your eyebrows on Fleek or, more simply, you could use that extra time to sleep in, who wouldn’t like that.

Microblading v.s. Microshading

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of microblading, let’s differentiate between microblading and micro-shading.

micro -shading is a generally simpler process, it can be done by a machine similar to that in micro-blading or a hand tool. It is essentially an artwork, and your eyebrows are the canvas. The artist deposits color throughout the brow, making the already present hair appear fuller than they actually are. It’s not just one color though the artist moves from a deeper color at the tail to a lighter color at the tip, creating a sort of ombre look on the eyebrow. This technique is usually for people who are looking for a more drastic change in their eyebrow.

Microblading, on the other hand, uses a machine that kind of resembles a tattoo gun, and it uses blades to mimic hair-like strokes. It doesn’t create a whole new eyebrow for you, simply fills in the sparse bits in the eyebrow you already have. It does look much more natural and real than micro shading, though. The results are immediate, and you can barely tell the difference between the microbladed hair and real ones.

What Makes Me a Good Candidate for Microblading?

You might be asking yourself this question, is it a good idea for me? Well, that depends on a few things, firstly what you are looking for. If you want your eyebrows completely transformed looking like Cara Delevingne after the microblading session, you’ll be disappointed, so better look towards micro-shading or eyebrow tinting. 

On the flip side, if you already have an eyebrow shape you are satisfied with and are looking to fill in the gaps or make them appear a bit fuller, then microblading is your thing. You might want to consider a few things though, if you have sensitive skin and tattoos don’t catch pigment on your skin, then microblading is probably a waste of time and money for you.  If you have an already present skin condition that could be aggravated by micro-blading, such as rosacea, choric acne, or dermatitis, then it’s a good idea to stay as far away from microblading as possible.

What Are The Different Types and How Long Do Procedures Take?

There are many different names out there for virtually the exact same thing, another word for microblading maybe embroidery. However, there are a few techniques that may differ slightly depending on the end result you’re looking for.

The D refers to the dimensions, so a 3D brow is a technician using 3 digital pens to make your brows look more realistic. It’s simple enough to understand but extremely difficult and time-consuming to do. 6D means six different pens, 6 different colors used to create different strokes and depth to make the eyebrows appear real.

This is when you’re a repeat customer when you have already gotten your eyebrows done once you aren’t a blank canvas. To fill over another artist’s work, match their ink color, their stroke technique, the pen they used, that kind of work is known as color correction, and can get extremely expensive.

This isn’t the most trendy look these days, but definitely some people’s preference. This type of brow is what you would call a typical made up brow.

This is a combination of when you mix typical micro-blading with hair strokes and shading to create something that looks more real than the 2 of them separately. This might be your cup of tea if you have very thin eyebrows naturally.

The first session takes a bit longer at about 3 hours because it’s more time consuming to have a consultation with the artist, and they have to shape and style the entire eyebrow. After the first session, the normal one would usually be done in about 2 hours tops.

How To Keep My Eyebrows Healthy Daily?

Have you ever thought of having a separate eyebrow routine? Probably not.  And trust me, it’s not as much work as you think a few simple steps can go a long way for your brows health. You could do these every day for the best result or 2 or 3 times a week if you can’t find the time.

Well first and perhaps the most obvious for any hair type is to nourish and moisturize it. There are many oils out there that do this job perfectly, and you don’t even need a special eyebrow oil, castor or coconut oil will do the job perfectly.

For the best results, get your eyebrow shaped professionally.  You don’t have to do this every month, but once every couple of months so you can make sure you aren’t over plucking and making them look like distant cousins instead of the sisters they are supposed to look like.

Tips on Shaping and Maintaining Brows At Home

Okay, so you go to a brow technician every few months, but how do you make sure they look perfect at home? Well, there are a few tricks you can do to make them appear flawless every time.

The first trick would be not to stick to one eyebrow product, use a variation of powder, pencil, and gel to give your eyebrows a more natural look, make strokes with a pencil in the front of the eyebrow, the tail should be gel and powder to finish the entire thing off. 

Secondly, and most importantly. Do not overpluck. This is a rookie mistake. You can always take more hair and style it, but sparse eyebrows won’t look natural no matter how much product you add.

Lastly, choose a lighter shade of eyebrow, darker colored eyebrows don’t look natural, they have that fake made up element. A lighter color looks more natural and makes it easier to hide imperfections.

How to Choose My Specialist to Help Me With Microblading?

This can be a tricky question. When looking for a microblading artist, there are certain things you should look at. You want them to be close to you. If you need retouches or a problem occurs, you can’t travel to another city for your brow artist, so stay local not more than an hour away. Read reviews online. An inexperienced technician can ruin your eyebrows, go for ones that have a high rating and well-written reviews, preferably with pictures so you can see their style. Then go for what you like, it’s your eyebrows, and you can choose whatever you want to do with them.

In the end, make your decision wisely, your eyebrows are one of the most defining features of your face, and you want them to look their best. They frame your entire face, so be sure that you go for the best.
