Microblading: the new way to reconstruct your eyebrows.
Recently, I had the opportunity to experience microblading for the first time ever! My expectations were far from what I experienced. What exactly is microblading though? Microblading is semi-permanent makeup used to fill in gaps through tiny strokes that appear like natural hair. Similar to a tattoo, “fine lines are scratched into the surface of the skin, and pigment embedded” as explained by EverTrue Microblading Salon.
Before getting your eyebrows microbladed, here are the three tips I learned from this experience:
1. Research the salon: Due to microblading becoming so popular, many unexperienced places will lure people in by giving them a “great” price. Try going to places your friends/ family have gone to already. Read the reviews. Contact the salon and don’t be scared to ask them questions. I went to EverTrue Microblading Salon and had an amazing experience because they answered all of my doubts. I really love that they have FAQ’s posted on their site, which made me feel more comfortable going with them.
2. Take a picture of your “ideal” eyebrows: Before getting your eyebrows microbladed, the specialist will draw out how your eyebrows will look like. I highly recommend bringing in a picture of how you shape your eyebrows or how you would like them to look. Trust me, this will help out you and the specialist!
3. Give yourself time for the healing process: If you have an important event coming up, give yourself at least 2 weeks before getting your eyebrows microbladed. The first few days are crucial because you have to put on a cream every morning AND night. You can’t put anything on them (such as soap) until your eyebrows are healed. You will notice your eyebrows healing when they start feeling itchy and peeling- this is completely normal!

Now that my eyebrows are healed, I can’t stop getting compliments. It definitely cuts down the time when I’m getting ready- which is a huge plus! I save about 10-15 minutes in the morning. I would say cutting down the time is a win for me.
