Lily Collins, Cara Delevingne, Emilia Clarke, Kylie Jenner, Brooke Shields – what do all these women have in common?
Yup. Brow goals.
A lot of women wouldn’t be caught outside of their house without a pair of perfectly groomed brows that takes a lot of time and effort to make. In fact, a lot of women nowadays would go the extra mile just to have beautiful, natural-looking, fuller, standout brows.
This trend has caused a surge in the demand for semi-permanent makeup, like microblading.
What is microblading so popular nowadays?
Having fuller brows is so in-demand that brow products are amongst the most sought-after and highest-selling makeup products in the market. But if you want to fake having Lily Collins-looking eyebrows, microblading would be your best bet.
Microblading is an extremely precise process that uses a handheld tool that has 10 to 12 micro-needles inserted to it to manually deposit pigment under your skin to create hair strokes. Before that, the artist will draw the shape of the brows you want, which they will work within once the microblading process starts. No, it doesn’t hurt at all because your brow area will be cleaned and numbed before the procedure. This can take 30 to 40 minutes. Healing can take two weeks to a month.
What makes microblading the best way to get Brooke Shields-like brows is that anyone can have natural-looking thicker brows. So even if you have blonde, sparse, or no brows at all, you can still achieve on-fleek brows with this procedure.
Is microblading safe?
It’s important that you have a healthy skin before undergoing microblading. On top of that, you need to find a skilled and experienced eyebrow artist to administer the procedure.
Generally, microblading is safe. However, allergic reactions to the ink used can be possible. This is why it’s important that you watch out for signs of infection and see a dermatologist if you notice any redness, itchiness, swelling, and pus.
