Eyebrow Microblading Review
I've been so interested in eyebrow micro-blading since I first saw it on Instagram. But, if you slide through the hashtag you see some really beautiful brows and some really WHOA brows.
I recently ran into my friend Jen in NYC and she mentioned she had done it- I honestly couldn't even tell. It just looks like she had beautiful, thick eyebrows. I was obsessed, I got the name of the woman who did hers and made an appointment with an expert in NYC Amy Kendall.
Psssttt....you can check out Amy's work on her instagram, too.
I've had a pretty annoying scar on my left eyebrow since I was a kid (can't remember how I got it) and when I don't fill in my brows I look a little like vanilla ice. Even eyebrow tinting, which I love, wouldn't work because there was no hair on the scar.
Here's the pros:
No longer have to fill in my eyebrows, wake up looking cute, scar filled in, less time in makeup, love the shape and color. Amy was able to custom mix my ink color to match my natural brow color perfectly. They will fade over time.
Cons: It hurts! (more below) They can be intense at first, you think WTF have a done and then in a day or two the color fades a little and it's perfect, it's $$$ but worth it. You have to not put any makeup on them for a few days, and it took about 4 days for mine to heal (she asked that I put aquaphor on mine until they did.
Speaking of the pain, it does hurt. I would describe it like someone used the tool they take to clean off your teeth and then rip it across your skin. Not as bad as a tattoo, but similar to the level of laser hair removal. It's sort of uncomfortable. I used numbing cream and it was not THAT bad, but don't go right before you period when your body is more sensitive to pain.
