Microblading advice continued... 3) Make sure the company/technician is well versed in the medical background and contraindications of the procedure. For example, many newer or uneducated techs will tell you that they can and will microblade over a previous eyebrow tattoo or if you’re breastfeeding, which are contraindications if they are not in the proper parameters. It is a red flag if they are not well versed in all medical criteria—which can affect you negatively if you have a reaction to the procedure.
4) Look for someone who has prior or existing experience in the beauty industry. The element that separates many technicians is how comfortable and how experienced they are with brows already. Makeup artists, cosmetologists and estheticians that are already constantly brow mapping or understand how to achieve symmetry to the face, specifically the brows will usually naturally have better results. Drawing brows on paper is definitely not the same as drawing them on the face. One needs to have experience with working on real 3 dimensional skin to know how to manipulate and troubleshoot if needed.
5) Beware of false advertisers or companies/technicians offering super, super low prices or deals all of the time, not in alignment with the local competition. This is a sign of inexperience or the possibility of improper or impure products that may or may not be quality controlled. Check their experience, their credentials, their reviews/testimonials, their facility and their background. You want to know who and what type of business they represent. This will avoid the chances of misrepresentation and accidentally going to a technician who is a fraud, is stealing others work to promote themselves or their company or simply is completed inexperienced.
I hope you found this information helpful! I gladly refer other technicians or companies to clients if I don’t believe myself or my techs are a good fit. Just want the world to have great eyebrows, that is all! Lol. Happy microblading! Xoxo!😉
For those of you who have been looking into microblading for quite some time or those of you who have just recently discovered it—here are some very helpful tips to consider before you choose who or where you would like to get it done. I’m making this post because I have seen soooo many horror stories since I’ve added this to my services—many clients that come to me for corrective work that honestly I can no longer correct (without removal) because of what was used or how it was done. This post isn’t meant to direct or redirect you to any specific person or company. If you want to go to your cousin that just picked up the trade recently, or a tech that has been doing permanent makeup for 10 years, it is your decision to make. This is meant to prevent common mistakes that are made, that you may have not realized to even think about beforehand. After all, this is technically permanent makeup and you wouldn’t want to get this done and regret your decision.
1) Do your research. There is not necessarily a right or wrong, just different styles and preferences. (Well, there can be wrong but who am I to judge others’ work.) Choose a company or technician that fits the overall esthetic of the type of brows you would like for yourself, not what you think looks good in general on other people. Far too often I have clients bring in pics of other eyebrows that don’t necessarily fit their facial structure. Make sure your technician knows how to customize and compromise to your expectations.
2) Make sure the company/technician has PLENTY of work posted of their before, after and even healed results in all angles and in all sizes (up close and farther away)—displaying not only one side or one brow, so you can see their symmetry and complete composition. Photos are great, but pics can be deceiving sometimes too, so look for video results as well. Also, make sure they are using their real clients photos and not stock or stolen images from the internet. This procedure requires a LOT of experience to perfect and it takes multiple clients to really understand the skin, technique, pigmentology and pressure needed to customize the procedure to you specifically.

Feel free to share your tips below, too! Sharing is caring!
This lovely client had 3 previous microblading sessions within this past year but was still not satisfied with her overall symmetry, overall strokes and retention. We also noticed the pigment she had needed to be color corrected to be less warm. So we added fullness, redefined her hairstrokes, cooled her pigment down, made her brows darker and also shaded her tails—since she had very little pigment retention in those areas. She loved her new and improved brow transformation! If you’ve already been microbladed and you feel like you need your eyebrows revamped, we can help! Contact us about our special still going on! 😍
Here is the “before” of my clients natural brows and her “after” from her perfection microblading appointment. Restructured her whole face by bringing symmetry, definition and a new brow shape. And remember the healed results are always much softer and much more natural. Don’t delay getting your own new and improved dream brows! ❤️
Finally I remembered to take a series of photos of all of the phases of microblading. As you can see, the results are so much more natural as they heal. After your perfection appointment, you can expect the color of your brows to be just in between your initial results and your first healed results. Look at the transformation we were able to create from her natural brows—but also look how natural her new shape and composition looks on her healed! Now she’s going to have her dream brows for the next 1-2 years! 😀
We have been rocking and rolling, even with all of the snow we’ve gotten! We CANNOT wait to share what we have been up to this past weekend! Stay tuned!!! In the meantime, here’s another client that requested our type of #BladedAndShaded brow style. We love this look for someone who is looking for a more dramatic, ombré powder brow feel. Keep in mind, the color will fade about 30-50% to a more natural finish. She LOVED her new brow transformation and we can’t wait to complete her brows at her perfection appointment! What a life changer she said this was for her! #ChangingLivesOneBrowAtATime ❤️😍❤️
I am falling more and more in love with the #BladedAndShaded technique! This style is perfect for someone who wants more of a naturally dramatic, but subtly filled in look.
Microbladed results will always fade about 30-50% in color after the procedure so this will heal to the perfect ombré finish.
So for those of you looking for more of a naturally filled in powder brow look or those of you with a much oilier skin type where microblading alone won’t sustain the crispness you desire, this is the technique for you! Contact us for details! 😀
