Microblading uses a small blade to create tiny cuts in the skin that mimic eyebrow hair strands. Microblading is also know as:
-3D eyebrow embroidery
Women of the world are putting tweezers on hiatus. The power brow has been taking over the world and microblading is women’s amnesty allowing wafer thin brows to evolve back to their original state of substance. Fashion trends have had our heads spinning over the past three decades. Makeup has gone from bold to minimal, natural to glamour having our eyebrows follow suit in a whirlpool of styles and heights.
One hundred years ago makeup was mainly only stage makeup used for the theatre. But with the birth of silent movies came the first birth of celebrity culture. Women got to see the glamour and beauty that was possible through the use of makeup and wanted to be able to capture it for themselves making makeup spread widely and quickly throughout the nineteen twenties. Even eyebrows back then were taking a beating, being plucked or even shaved off completely, mimicking the stars of the times with a super slim almost parallel brow to the eyelid.
But things change. Decades later high arch would make an entrance, making arched eyebrows the only way to go. Our eyebrows have become extremists, going from one end of the spectrum to the other.
But what have these trend reversals done to our brows over the years? Many of us are suffering the consequences of being fashion savvy. Our eyebrows have taken the brunt, leaving many of us as holy women with gaps and void in our brow line. Now many of us are sporting odd brow shapes; the tadpole look, the upside down smiley or the angry brow look.
And along comes Microblading. Microblading has had increased popularity in the United States over the past three years. So why is this fad becoming a full-blown movement? The simple answer is that it brings all eyebrow needs into one great treatment. No need for threading as microblading creates the arch that you just cannot achieve with threading, and you can put your tweezers down finally as microblading will give your brow line the definition that you have been trying to achieve with makeup.
Microblading looks three dimensional. It is the voids of skin that create the appearance of depth, quite ingenious. When applied correctly, it brings the brow line back to life, filling in the voids we have formed for ourselves by decades of over-plucking. Additionally, microblading can aid us in stopping plucking completely. Most people have a desire to pluck hairs that don’t seem to belong, but as eyebrows will appear thicker after microblading these lost brow hair suddenly have a place again and can assist clients in leaving them alone to breathe.
For those of you who still don’t ‘get it’ microblading is a form of a tattoo, but it is just a different type of tattoo. It is still depositing ink into the skin but in a unique way. Permanent makeup of the past goes deep, depositing ink into the dermis level. It is this deep level that makes the ink permanent and makes the image of the work somewhat fuzzy. Imagine a beautiful work of art. Now layer over a piece of organza. Now the work of art looks less clear and distorted. It is like this with your skin. The more layers of skin the tattoo is viewed through, the more distorted it looks, giving off the appearance of a shadow or distorted lines. Microblading lines are crisp and clear. The reason for this is that microblading works are tattooed into the epidermis layers, not the dermis. It is this very fact that makes microblading lines look like hair, crisp and vibrant. A tattoo done with a tattoo gun goes much more in-depth and can never maintain the clarity that microblading does. And so the movement begins. Microblading look very realistic and is the most real looking semi-permanent makeup treatment on the market today bringing eyebrows back to life all over the world.
Eyebrows are personal and make a personal statement. Look at Frida Kahlo, famous not only for her art but also her eyebrows. Brooke Shields, famous for her brows, Cara Delevingne famous for her brows. Model Kristy McMenamy became a famous super-model only after she shaved off her brows. Brow styles make an impact on the looks of the time. It can make you look thinner, younger, can add or take away from the definition of your face, make you look cheap or expensive and can make you look happy or angry. So should you use just anyone for this service? With so much at state, no, you should only go to an expert.
