What Is Microblading? Everything You Need To Know About The New Eyebrow Trend

April 25, 2016 by Lisa Fogarty
shefinds | beauty

The eyebrow evolution (and revolution) continues. Microblading is the latest innovative procedure guaranteed to give you the most natural-looking, thick, and shapely brows of your life. But how much do you actually know about it–and how much would you be willing to pay to wake up with perfect brows every morning? Here’s everything you need to know about the new brow procedure taking the beauty world by storm.

Also called eyebrow embroidery, feathering, or etching, microblading is a semi-permanent makeup solution that, thankfully, differs from the eyebrow tattoos we saw in past years. Whereas traditional eyebrow tats scare us to bits because they all too often seem to indiscriminately deposit a heavy layer of dark ink without taking into account a person’s natural brow shape, microblading uses a very fine blade to deposit pigment into the epidermis using the “hairstroke” technique. In other words: your brows won’t appear too dark or inky and the brows you have will seamlessly blend into the makeup to give you a natural appearance.

Microblading has become popular with beauty enthusiasts who want to give their brows some heft, but it’s also doing wonders for those who suffer from alopecia, trigonometrical, or anyone undergoing chemotherapy treatments. Of course, it isn’t cheap. The average cost for microblading is between $700-$800 and it is recommended that you touch up your brows again after one month. After that, you should get about three months of beautiful, bold, streak-free brows before you’ll have to make another microblading appointment (remember: it’s semi-permanent makeup, which works in your favor if you wind up hating how it looks).

During the two-hour procedure, a microblading pen is used to draw on strokes one by one–think of an artist carefully sculpting your eyebrows and creating a beautiful masterpiece. A numbing cream is applied to the area beforehand, but customers say it feels uncomfortable but not as painful as, say, a bikini wax.

Your brows can make a huge difference in your overall appearance and microblading can save you time in the morning and money you’d otherwise spend on tinting. If you’re thinking about springing for this procedure, make sure you visit a qualified professional who won’t rush it or charge you bargain-basement prices for a less than stellar job.
