If you grew up in the 90’s, you’ll definitely remember scanty eyebrows being all the rage back then. As trends changed, plucked eyebrows made an exit only to be replaced by fuller, more defined brows. In more recent times, you’ve probably envied the lush brows of Lilly Collins or Cara Delevingne and tried everything to get them. Fortunately, there is a more lasting way to get the hottest, big brows of the moment and it’s called microblading.

If you’re afraid of scraggly brows that look drawn in with a marker, don’t fear. Eyebrow microblading is a semi-permanent form of makeup in which they can be reconstructed or groomed. Although the technique is a form of tattooing, the pigment is implanted with a hand held tool without imprinting as deep as a normal tattoo. This is what makes microblading last between 18 months to 3 years.

This popular technique has found favour with celebrities like Bella Thorne for the simple reason that it is low maintenance and helps you save on all that time you’d otherwise spend on filling in your brows. Prior to the procedure, a numbing gel is applied. Next, a rough outline of the shape is drawn in. Following that, minute strokes are manually filled in. In total, the whole procedure lasts for only a few hours.

Microblading is known to be minimally painful with slight discomfort. Once done, healing takes a few weeks following which, you needn’t worry about your brows getting smudged. So if you’re looking to get on-fleek brows for the long haul, you know what to do!
