It is so easy to get lost on things that don’t really matter and this is something even the most renowned people do. How many celebrities can you name that disfigured themselves in the name of beauty? People suddenly have money and they think they can be, do, or have whatever it is they want. Often, people look past what is right before them for things that are actually wrong for them. Microblading eyebrows is a fad that has peaked over the last ten years and you may have gotten the vibe that I may be against it, but it’s quite the contrary. It is something that can actually change your life for the better.
Is it for everyone?
The negative vibe you may have sensed stems from the fact that not everyone needs microblading. In fact, some people are just fine the way they are. It’s like when people plump their lips when their natural lips look just fine. Nature tends to pick the best features for each face and body type. I am well aware that nature doesn’t always give us what we prefer but more often than not, the features of our bodies tend to go well together. Be that as it may, if you are one of those people who feel their eyebrows just isn’t working for them, or you are a victim of acquired eye-brow plucking OCD, then microblading is something that may actually be good for you.
A brief explanation
As it is obvious to many by now, microblading is a kind of tattooing technique that adds semi-permanent artificial eyebrows on the face. It is mostly presented as semi-permanent but according to Wikipedia, it is quite permanent. The main treatment or the signs of the procedure will stick with you. The aesthetic (the drawn or tattooed brows) bit of the procedure is what fades with time and many will need a retouch after perhaps a year or so. If you don’t retouch, on close-up, someone will be able to tell that you did the procedure.
The amazing thing about microblading is that it can transform your life by making you more aesthetically pleasing and save you a lot of time in front of the mirror. If you are one of those people who take ages just working their brows, microblading will slash that time by half or even threefold. Once it is done and your brows have healed, you will benefit by not working your brows for perhaps 6 to 12 months. Imagine, never touching your brows or worrying whether they look okay for up to a year, Great! Right?
The downside of the procedure is that it can be INSANELY expensive. The rule is that if you have fairly filled brows, you won’t’ have to spend much. However, if you barely have any brows and would like to give the impression you do, then it will cost you, dearly.
And then some
Furthermore, to avoid falling on the side of those who regret doing the procedure, Forbes advises that you ensure that you are dealing with a professional. If you already have brows and only need a patch here and there, you can easily get away with mistakes, if they are minor. Nevertheless, if you basically have no brows and you have someone who doesn’t know their stuff microblade you, chances are that if they mess up, you may have to leave with that mistake both physically and emotionally. You need to ensure the person who will work on you is someone who will bring out the best in you and not the opposite.
You never know what you have until it’s gone. In my opinion, most people who microblade their brows are already okay the way they are, especially if your brows are essentially full. Sometimes, people just make a fuss over little things. The procedure is insanely expensive and it will leave a permanent mark on your face. Nonetheless, there are those who really need the procedure. All I’m saying is that be sure before microblading your brows. Don’t just be sure that you want to do it but also be sure that the person doing it is a sure thing.
