Microblading is the process of implanting pigments into your eyebrows to create a more natural, fuller look. When done correctly, it’s a fabulous way to look and feel great by not only enhancing your eyebrows but also drawing attention to the whole region around your eyes. There are numerous microblading benefits that you may not have considered, so we’ll take a brief look at some of them in this post.
Microblading history, the desire for a more natural look
For those of you who aren’t aware, the history of microblading may date back thousands of years. In it’s modern guise, the trend developed into a technique for use on the eyebrows in Asia and was also known as ‘feathering’ or ’embroidery’ before the more widespread phrase ‘ microblading’ was adopted. Also sometimes referred to as ‘microstroking’, the process became popular as a method to help people going through chemotherapy to regain their eyebrows if they had been partially lost. As a result, the art of microblading was born and quickly evolved into a more widespread, general practice to enhance natural beauty by creating a fuller looking eyebrow.
Save time getting ready in the morning
As any woman will tell you, getting up and ready in the morning can sometimes be an arduous task. The time it takes to get ready can become something of a repetitive chore when preparing to face the day. This will usually involve trying to make sure that you look your best, you’ve got your makeup on, and that you have eyebrows which are, to coin a phrase, ‘on fleek’. The obvious benefit of microblading ensures that at least part of the process isn’t a worry anymore as your eyebrows will always look their very best. If time is of the essence, then at least there’s one less thing to worry about whilst allowing you to spend more time on other aspects of your morning routine.
How long does microblading last?
One of the main questions I’m often asked is “how long does microblading last?” There are a multitude of factors that can determine this such as:
- How frequently you sunbathe/top up your tan
- How often (if at all) you use a sauna
- Your daily skin care routine
- The natural oil production of your skin
- Whether you have the occasional acid skin peel
Whilst the list above (together with various other factors) can affect the lifespan of your new brows, they’re still extremely durable and resilient. As a general rule of thumb, you can expect the microblading process to last anywhere between twelve to eighteen months. This means that you won’t need to keep going back and forth to get them updated/touched up, which has the obvious benefit of saving you both time and money.
Your eyebrows won’t smudge or smear
If you’ve found this post, you’re probably already aware that the art of microblading is a semi permanent addition to your features. In other words, the microblading process completely eliminates the chances of the odd smudge or smear; even when exposed to water or sweat. If you’re a regular visitor to the gym or swimming pool, you can be confident that you can exercise/swim all you want whilst not having to worry that your brows will be anything less than perfect.
General microblading benefits
There are many benefits to microblading and I’m sure you’ll see other advantages become apparent over time. If for no other reason, the simple fact that you have brows which always look full and natural any time of the day or night is certainly one less thing to worry about. When you’re pushed for time in the morning and have a busy day ahead, you don’t want to compromise any part of your morning routine and microbladed eyebrows will certainly take care of at least one small part of it.
It’s also worth mentioning that if your eyebrows are incomplete or aren’t particularly well formed, it can put a dent in your confidence. With microblading, you can enjoy the full eyebrows that you have always dreamed of, and you can go back to feeling confident and ready to take on anything the world may throw at you!!!
