They are too thin, there are too many gaps, they’re not dark enough, they are completely uneven to one another… we each have our own struggles with our brows. Microblading can be the answer to achieving your best brows yet! There are so many stories to be heard, posts to be seen and videos to watch on social media to feed our curious mind on how to achieve a beautiful brow transformation with microblading and how to also avoid a catastrophe.
First and foremost, educate yourself! Be sure you are having your service performed by a properly certified permanent make up artist in a properly regulated facility. If the artist you are considering is working out of a salon, this is not legal in the state of New Jersey. The business is not following health regulations and this can result in a terrible result… on your face!
Is it painful?
The technique I use allows for a near painless experience. The most I’ve had a client say it feels like is slight tweezing. I think we can all pretty much handle that!
I’m afraid of having big, bold eyebrows that are too dark!
“This is a two appointment procedure. You can always add more, you can always go darker. You can’t take it away.”
This is my mantra! I will say this to you in our consultation most likely more than once. As far as the shape and overall design of the brow are concerned I look at you as a whole. Your height, age, face shape, the space in which the brows will be created, your hair color and style. All of these factors play a key role in this decision. I also use a measuring tool to create the brow design so it is conducive to your natural anatomy. I believe in creating a beautiful transformation that we can both agree on and if you want it to be bolder that is what the perfection session is for! The same holds true regarding the color. It can always be made darker at the perfection session but the pigment I use stays true and results in very little fading. Another important piece to this concern is my 20 year history of specializing in eyebrow design and shaping as an esthetician where brow tint, wax and tweezers were my only tools. Microblading allows me to take this precise skill to the next level.
