I have dark, full, thick eyebrows and still got micro blading. Here’s why…
Before I get into the whole spiel, truth is we are girls, we are beauty conscious, and we are particular. Also we are incredibly self aware, (thank you Instagram) and become more and more drawn to easiness and convenience (lazy). I am no exception and its okay. So really isn’t this the reason we get manis, lash extensions, and hair removal treatments? Is it that bad to want look effortlessly good all the time? I just literally want to “wake up like this”.
All that is true but in my case some would think it was unnecessary. I was blessed with very hairy dark eyebrows, which really are only blessed in the moment. I said once and I’ll say it again, perfect thick eyebrows are a trend. Wonder what we’ll think when we look back 10 years from now. Anyway, that doesn’t mean my eyebrows didn’t require any penciling/grooming. In fact because of the darkness, any unevenness shows more drastically than a less obvious brow including my evil villain looking scar on my left brow. Yes, this is by far the biggest reason I decided I wanted to get micro bladed. Not having to constantly touch up and brush the hairs up to hide sounded very appealing to me. Makes a woman’s life easier, it’s the little things. Enter Finespun (miracle worker) into my life.
What to do before:
The process starts long before the procedure happens. Your aesthetician should prepare you in advance to make sure your body is ready. When you are discussing what you want don’t be afraid to speak up and get as specific as you can. Many have different styles and different tastes but in the end you know what you like and what works best for you. Bring pictures (Olivia Culpo) and your brow pencil and show your aesthetician exactly what you’re looking to get.
I was deathly afraid of the pain I would feel going into it. Many compare it to getting a tattoo, but this little old soul has none so the equivalence was senseless. In all honesty from 1-10 by pain level was at a 2. Wouldn’t even call it pain to begin with. Before the procedures, you should be smothered with numbing crème while you go over specs and measurements letting it sit and do its job. Right before you begin, another layer of cream is applied. I remember feeling scratches at first and did feel a bit of pain towards the end of the brow but I quickly informed Megan so she added more numbing cream as we went. Anyone who has ever said its hurts like hell is seriously a baby.
Do your research:
Megan Forester, registered nurse and has worked in dermatology, is exceptional in her work and it certainly shows. When it comes to choosing who can perform this kind of work on you, you should be just as picky as you are with your aesthetics. I mean it is only your FACE! And not just that, but your skin and health should be taken into consideration when learning about the risks. Megan has by far excelled in her work. Granted the procedure took longer than expected but the results are that much better.
AMAZING! I am thrilled and in love with my eyebrows. At first they looked too dark but by the second week they start looking the way they should and so natural. I haven’t gone in for my touch up yet but I don’t even think I need it. I’m only getting retouched so it can last longer, but the results are just phenomenal. I can literally now say, “I WOKE UP LIKE THIS”.
I would 100% recommend going to Megan so if you’re interested in getting yours looking perfect like mine, make sure to mention Truly Ney and get $25 offf.
