Our eyebrows are one of the most noticeable parts of our faces. Most females are conscious about how their brows look because today’s trend says that they speak about your beauty.
Eyebrows have their trend from every decade. It started with a pencil-thin brow from the early 1930s to a thick, fuller, and more natural look on this present time. Just like how fast time is, the fashion and beauty essentials also innovated like a blink of an eye.
When technology had evolved, our ways of becoming pretty had also adapted to changes. In the past, we only use a simple eyebrow pencil to shape our brows to enhance our beauty, but nowadays, we already use many advanced ways to make it more fashionable and achieve that natural but on-fleek brow style.
One of the most in-demand crazes for eyebrows is Micro-blading. It is a process of filling the eyebrows with a hand-held microblade tool with needles. Through this method, pigments are used to fill in hair gaps and serves as semi-permanent make-up. This procedure lasts for a few months or it depends on the quality of the service provided for you.
Microblading can be beneficial with the way you look but it also has risks that you need to know. Since this procedure cuts the skin, people who do this need to be professional because this activity requires a very hygienic process to avoid any infections. If this is done by an inexperienced person, it might result terribly and make you regret it for the rest of your life.
One more disadvantage of micro-blading is that it leaves scars on our face that require a lot of concealing and gives a lot of damage to our skin. Even when we receive treatment with someone who has a lot of experience with the procedure, there is no assurance that in the long run, there wouldn’t be side effects. These side effects will need a lot of maintenance which might cause serious damage to your face.
We can avoid the negative effects of micro-blading. We have old fashion and traditional ways that can be done as DIY (Do-it-yourself). These methods don’t require you to spend hundreds of dollars to achieve that perfect eyebrow look. The list is as follows:
This method is a home remedy that uses a pair of tweezers. It’s easy! You just use a mirror and pluck your eyebrows, remove the undesired hairs, and shape it, however, you need a lot of patience when doing this one because you manually pluck the hairs one by one and it is very painful. If you can tolerate the pain, then maybe you can do it regularly.
This one is easier compared with plucking. You just need an eyebrow shaver and a mirror, which is very cheap. This method, however, requires a lot of practice to achieve your desired shape. Don’t worry, you can watch a lot of video tutorials on how to perfectly shave your brows, you just need to be very careful because one mistake can cause a disaster which results in an awful-looking eyebrow.
Threading is an old-fashioned way to shape our brows. This service is mostly offered in small salons, but you can also do it at home when you have experience. This procedure uses a thin thread by twisting it into a double strand to pick up a line of hair. This method leaves a wax-like result on your brows and much better than plucking and shaving because the hair grows slower than the first two methods.
All these traditional ways require you to use an eyebrow pencil and other eyebrow cosmetics to have fuller brows and to make it more Instagram-worthy. There are tattoo eyebrow cosmetics but it usually lasts for a few hours and putting makeup on takes a lot of time and effort. This is the reason why women want something that would cost them a little time to prepare. Many of them have tried micro-blading but since we showed you its cons, we are showing other advanced options to make your eyebrows more competitive than others. If you are someone afraid to take the risk of micro-blading, you might want to consider the following methods:
Microshading and Microblading have similarities at some point, however, unlike micro-blading, micro shading doesn’t require needles to put the pigments in our skin. It is safer than micro-blading because there is no need to wound your skin. Its results are a bit different since it is more focused on creating shade by putting small dots in your skin to give a powder effect like makeup. This procedure lasts for up to 2 years or how much you take care and maintain it. Since this one has maintenance, it’s quite expensive.
Brow Perm/Brow Lamination
This semi-permanent makeup procedure uses a cream to raise your brows and then brush them up in one direction. They also put a chemical to stay up the brows before shaping it. After perming, a treatment oil is applied to prevent skin irritation or any allergic reactions. It usually takes an hour or less for the whole procedure.
The benefit of Brow perm is that it makes your eyebrows look thicker and fuller. It also gives you shiny and smooth eyebrows. This procedure doesn’t require needles and blading which makes it much safer than micro-blading so if you do not want to leave a scar on your face, you should consider doing this instead.
Having on-fleek eyebrows is incredibly a must for women, for some, it is even the standard of a pretty face. It provides our modern ladies undeniable confidence and definitely puts you in the spotlight. But let us not forget about what is really important when it comes to beauty. SELF CONFIDENCE! Yes! Absolutely! Let’s not forget to raise our confidence just like we raise our eyebrows. Remember that all the efforts we put into our face are no use if don’t have that magic word.
