Just like recently I had a blond crush, and am still thinking of going blonde. I have now decided to have my brows micro-blended or actually have a permanent powder ombre brows done. In this post I wanted to share with you my favorite inspirations. If I like my brows I will share the results and where I am doing the procedure.
Edit: Click here to find out how my first micropigmentation went. Enjoy!
How to pick the right person to do your eyebrows
As I was looking at the amazingly shaped brows on the internet I started thinking what does it take to get the perfect brows and how to pick the right person for the job.
At first you need to have someone who understands different shapes and doesn’t force you to have the shape they personally like. Last time I went to have the wax and tint done and it didn’t end well. The lady decided that wide brows are the most beautiful so she decided to pigment my forehead. It looked awful, good it was only henna, so I had it gone in 3 days or so, but the scary thing was, she was doing permanent brows as well. It’s like with hairdresser, when you just want to trim the ends and come back with 5 inch shorter hair.
So here is what I found as the tutorial for picking the perfect brow artist.
Brows can change everything – If someone does not understand that, you should be as far from their chair as possible.
There are a lot of shapes and thickness levels, and the one below hardly covers a percentage of it.
Color makes a difference.
Technique makes a difference
Picking wrong person for the job can do a lot of damage. There is a reason why they charge less.
Practice makes perfect
Painting skills help
Sketching with precision is a must
Having lots of experience and a portfolio of before and after photos are a definite must
How to find a person to do your brows
You may ask, how to find a person like that, so you can trust them with your face.
I have a couple of ways to find them, even though they don’t always make it easy:)
Instagram is my favorite app in regards to any inspiration: beauty, fashion, travel, you name it. So this is where I started my research #microblading #pmu seems like hashtags used very frequent by permanent makeup artists but hey, you are not going to jump on plane and flew half the globe away if you find them. You need something more specific like #permanentbrowsnyc #ombrebrowsnewyork #permanentmakeuplondon ect. To be hones, the person I picked for my brows didn’t use any of those hashtags, but I had to start somewhere. She definitely had hundreds of before and after pics and videos and all of them I am in love with.
Micro pigmentation academy
I was looking for brands that organize training programs, researched the trainers and their work. They teach others so often times they have the most experience. Look for academies in your city or somewhere where you can go that is reasonable. I will be driving two hours to get my brows done.
If you have a friend who has done it before and you like their result start there, if you don’t- use the two options above 🙂
