Here Are The Major Things That You Need To Consider Before Microblading

Full brows are all the rage these days. Rocking thick, statement-making eyebrows are everywhere. And every time you spot a perfect pair of brows on your Instagram feed and in real life, chances are, those killer arches aren’t eventually the product of a good brow pencil, but microblading. But, what exactly is it?

Microblading is a semi-permanent technique that embroiders your brows. A special pen is used to draw on small, precise strokes that mimic the appearance of the real hair. Unsurprisingly, microblading’s popularity has really soared last year which makes it every eyebrow enthusiasts’ dream.

If you’re ready to put down those tweezers, brow gels and pencils, for this amazing brow-grooming option, read on to find out everything you need to know before making a microblading sesh.  

 

Choose the right artist.

Of course, getting your brows look the way you want it starts by picking the right microblading artist. Do some research. Make sure the artist does the kind of brows you’re looking for, whether it be manicured, messy looking, sparse and natural.

 

Prepare for it.

Two weeks prior to the schedule, always remember to not wax, spray tan or do any exfoliating treatment before a microblading sesh since it can irritate the skin and tarnish the results. Be sure to check the salon before your appointment for specific recommendations that they have.

 

Results may vary.

Unlike the permanent eyebrow tattoo, microblading will give you that thin, natural-looking effect. With its microblading needle, they have much control over what they’re doing.

 

It is not for everyone.

If you have sensitive skin, steer clear. Especially those who have allergies may react to the pigment or experience contact dermatitis. Microblading on keloids and scars is a huge no-no as well.
