How far are you willing to go for full eyebrows?
Well, for those that are serious about having the brows of their dreams, tattooing them on has always been a option. However, it’s definitely not the best solution. Many times, those that have chosen the ink method are left with very dark, unnatural looking brows that nearly look like Sharpie strokes. Not to mention, the ink pigment can be a tad off and look like you tattooed them on, which isn’t the ideal result whatsoever.
Nevertheless, there’s a new solution to combat those woes. Try microblading. Commonly referred to as, 3-D eyebrow embroidery, microblading creates strokes on the brow that looks just like real hairs with no tattoo gun, no ink, and no bleeding or downtime.
“Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, or fill-in over plucked brows,” Nadia Afanaseva, microblading expert and trainer at Eye Design New York shared with InStyle. Instead of tracing over the eyebrow with harsh ink, a semi-permanent pigment is pushed into the surface of the skin with a fine blade pen to draw individual strokes one by one to the existing hair, therefore creating the most natural looking, full eyebrow you can possibly imagine.
While this procedure does call for numbing cream and large threshold for pain, it’s bit rough on the wallet — costing you anywhere from $300 and up — but if brows are your crutch, go for it! I mean, seriously, flawless brows that will last you anywhere from one to two years until they gradually and naturally fade away sounds like it’s totally worth a try.
