Microblading can look great – but it can also go horribly wrong! We’ll tell you exactly how microblading works – and what you absolutely have to consider to save yourself the fate of an Australian (SEE BELOW!).
What is microblading?
The short answer: permanent make-up for the eyebrows that works like a cosmetic tattoo. Lined up needles – the blades – put color pigments into the skin, similar to tattooing. With the difference that the pigments naturally fade after a while without changing their color. How long you can enjoy your perfect eyebrows depends, for example, on the fat content of the skin. Basically , the color is approx. one to two years. With oily skin, there is a greater risk that the color will fade faster.
How does microblading work?
First, you will get the desired eyebrow shape is drawn on the forehead. The artist then “cuts” fine lines into the area with the blades. These look totally natural because they are actually only as wide as human hair.
Microblading experts advise that you never have your eyebrows tattooed. A vibrating needle can not work as fine as the blades. Nevertheless, after microblading, your skin resembles one freshly tattooed skin – it is red and irritated. You also have to clean the area and rub it with a fat cream. This protects against scab and binds the color in the skin.
By the way: you only get brows like Cara Delevingne with microblading if you want them. You can also just fill in gaps.
