I AM SO excited to write this post!! I've had so many questions in the months following my microblading with Blush Brow Bar so I thought I would share my experience of getting my eyebrows microbladed here for you all.
Microblading changed my beauty game and has simplified my mornings so much! Brows are such an important part of completing your makeup and really change the way your face looks. Waking up everyday with perfect brows for the last four months has been so incredible. I'm literally obsessed with the shape and colour that Stephanie and I chose together and I can't recommend her and Blush Brow Bar enough.
I'm just gonna throw this out there, that microblading is HANDS DOWN the BEST beauty investment I have ever made. The ultimate beauty life hack.

Now to answer your questions:
What is Microblading? Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each ‘hair’ is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.
Basically, microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo that reshapes your eyebrows with hair like strokes. Stephanie at Blush Brow Bar is AMAZING and creates literally the perfect shape of what you're looking for, PLUS her colouring skills are incredible. I've literally never seen such a nice custom blonde colour.
How long does it take? It takes roughly 2.5-3 hours on your first visit. Mine took about 2.5 hours from start to finish. During this session, they will create a custom shape and styleand make sure your eyebrows are exactly what you want them to look like. Then they create a custom colour based on your preference, skin colour and tone. I can't say enough how beautiful the colour is that Stephanie chose for me! Often blondes end up with orangey looking brows, but Stephanies blonde colouring is a DREAM.
Does it hurt? Everyone has a different pain threshold but they apply topical anesthetic throughout the procedure and I didn't find it painful! The first pass feels a little bit like scratching and then after that you don't feel anything at all!
How long does it take to heal? It takes between 7-14 days for the brows to fully heal and about 1 month for the colour to fully set in and settle to the colour they will stay. After 4-6 weeks you go in for a touch up to perfect the brows, add any hairs that you want to, refill any spots that didn't pick up pigmentation, adjust the colouring if you want, and allow your brows to fully set in.
How long does it last? Microblading usually lasts 1-3 years depending on your skin type (oily, normal, dry), age, and how you care for your skin.
