Our Client’s Microblading Experience
What’s a microblading experience like? Our client shares her eyebrow microblading experience with OPM! Read on to find out how microblading changed her life.
My eyebrow microblading experience
My brows have been bushy my entire life, for lack of better word. But, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed that they’ve become a bit unruly. Bushy in the middle, but thin at the tips. I’ll be honest and admit that I have done damage to my eyebrows before, such as over-plucking and waxing, and maybe I am part of the reason why my arch has suddenly disappeared.
What’s worse is that I very rarely have the time to do my eyebrows. While my makeup drawer is filled with all sorts of brow products such as pencils, powders, and pens, I’ve never really had the chance to use them. Call me an eyebrow makeup hoarder. I want my brows to look as great as Lily Collins’ yet I have no drive to actually put in the effort.
When I heard my friends talking about their microblading experience, it all changed for me. In case you haven’t heard of it, eyebrow microblading is kind of like a permanent tattoo that uses very tiny needles to mimic the actual hair strands on your brows. It creates thin pigments on the surface of the skin, and looks pretty natural compared to typical eyebrow tattooing procedures where brows become blue or gray. Yikes. So, my friend named Abigail told me she got them done a few days ago and I quickly became obsessed. I looked at her brows and they looked like they belong to Beyonce, Cara Delevingne and Daenerys Freaking Targaryen. I wanted to have my own microblading experience, so I immediately looked up microblading services in my area, and then booked an appointment.
The microblading experience begins
Not gonna lie, I was a bit scared because NEEDLES! But my microblading artist assured me that it was pretty painless, and that she would make sure my brows looked as good as hers (she had amazing eyebrows!)
The great thing about eyebrow microblading is that you can go from having zero eyebrows to having thick, gorgeous brows that are ready for the runway. Microblading creates strokes of hair that legit look natural, and the pigment they use matches your natural eyebrow color. They also use different shades to make your brows look more 3D, and less cartoony, if you know what I mean. Basically, here’s what went down during my microblading experience:
First, she began to outline my eyebrows and create the shape that I would want. She asked me what kind of eyebrows I would love to have. I told her I just wanted thicker, fuller brows that were thinner than Lily Collins’ but sharper like Kylie’s. It was a pretty vague description, but she shaped them perfectly! My microblading artist knew exactly what brow shape worked well with my face shape. Then, she told me about the high-tech looking tool in her hand. It looked like a tattoo pen, but it wasn’t. She also told me that she was going to use organic permanent ink throughout the microblading experience, which was a major bonus.
After that, my real microblading experience began. I lay down on the “bed” and she started creating tiny strokes along my eyebrow. It wasn’t painful at all!
It took around an hour for her to microblade my eyebrows. Once in a while, she would show me the progress. She would ask if I wanted to add more arch or put more hairs here and there. I left that up to her because, as someone who has over-plucked, I really have no trust in myself anymore!
Honestly, I’m so excited about my new, perfect eyebrows. Ever since I got them done, I haven’t put any makeup on my brows because they look amazing just the way they are! Overall, I’m very satisfied with my microblading experience and I would recommend it to all of my friends.
