Just had mine done today so thought I would share in case anyone was thinking about it! I had the digital machine ones so not microblading, done with one needle but a bit like a tattoo. Painful but I'm a wimp anyway. Took a couple of hours but most of that was measuring and drawing, and they last around 4 years
THIS is the thread I’ve been waiting for. I’ve finally decided to do something about my none existent eyebrows. It seems they make you look really groomed and I’ve been Loki g back at my holiday snaps and noticed for the first time that I have none. Just a eyes and a nose and mouth, NO eyebrows!
So what are all the options out there? I’ve tried threading bla bla bla, rubbish. I’ve heard of microblading but OP’s method that lasts 4 yrs sounds ether. My local eyebrow store said microblading lasts about a yr? so it seems this digital business is the right way to go.
I don’t want anything as dramatic as OP’s as I think I’ll look silly, just old fashioned type eyebrows will do. OP how frequently do you need to top up and how much does it cost?
SuccessStory I would recommend that the first thing you do is go to a beautician for a tint and shape - explain what you want to achieve (take Pinterest pictures if necessary!) and talk it through first. Explain that with the tint, you want to start quite naturally - not dramatic, and maybe up it from there. They can always make them darker if need be, but if they come out too dark, it’s juat a waiting game!
Then once you’ve found a shape and shade that you’re happy with you’ll have a starting point for potentially having them microbladed or whatever. Just don’t leap in with tattoos or microblading first off!!
Laquila - Thank you sooo much for all that advice. I’ll pay attention to all that and start with the tinting armed with shape photos. Is it advisable to have it at any of the local eyebrow places or does one have to find a ‘specialist beautician’?
