MICROBLADING: MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
Happy New Year!
...And happy new brows!
It's already April 2019 but it's not too late to start the year up to a whole new smudge-proof-extreme-natural-looking-brows!
I'm ecstatic to share this to you since this is my first microblading experience & I'm also excited to introduce the person behind this masterpiece. My first ever collab of the year! Yay! :)
So, what comes to mind when you hear this talk-of-the-town term "microblading"?
To give you an overview, microblading also known as "eyebrow embroidery" is a tattooing technique--- a form of semi-permanent tattoo in which a small handheld tool made of several tiny needles (...instead of a tattoo gun) is used to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin.
Yes, you read it right. Tattoo! --emblem, inked, tramp stamp, tat or tatt, body art-- whatever you call it.
But don't fret!
Unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent.
Microblading differs from standard eyebrow tattooing because each hair-stroke is created by hand to produce a thin, natural-looking line that blends in with existing eyebrow hair, whereas eyebrow tattoos are done with a machine and needle, often producing thicker, less natural lines that tend to expand over time.
See? It isn't the scary type though.
I was skeptical at first because I've never been tattooed my entire life! "Is it painful?"-- is what comes to my mind initially. But out of curiosity & amazement of having no smearing, no smudging, no reapplying perfect brow all day everyday, who
am I to say no?
I say yes, and it's worth it! <3
Well, first things first. Especially when it's your first microblading experience, it's an obvious reaction to be hesitant. It's essential to have your own research. Know a little thing or too with your chosen artist because "trust" is one of the things to be considered, right?

After meeting Ms. Grace in person, I get to know her more as we have our little chit-chat & more laughs that I didn't expect at all. She is an amazing person, that's why I know that I'm in good hands.
So, here's how it all went down:
To start, Ms. Grace asked me what I wanted to this experience. I told her I wanted brows that are extremely natural. She then began to outline my brows and create the shape that she would eventually work within when she began microblading my arches.
A bespoke pigment blend is made, to match my current brows, and then tiny hair-like strokes are etched on using a micro blade.
Microblading is done in layers and the first layer was quiet painful but tolerable. The next couple of layers hurt much less. The result directly after the session is up to 70% darker than the end result, which I’m prepared for. Because Ms. Grace inform me the details.
So, the reveal...
The whole procedure took about two hours, since mid-process, we did a pizza break and a little chit-chat. Ms. Grace is really kind and generous :)
And then it was finally time for me to stand up and take a look at the finished product. Ms. Grace showed me a mirror and my reaction (see photos!) — you can decide whether or not I was immediately obsessed!
WARNING: Massive selfies ahead lol!
Within the hour it took Ms. Grace to give me wow brows, I asked her a ton of questions, one of which was "how long will this last?" She told me that the results usually last around one to three years depending on skin types.
So, after the session I took 100 selfies and off I went to spread the word of microblading.
I asked Ms. Grace of some FAQs to guide you on your experience with microblading. Feel free to ask questions on the comments section down below if you have personal inquiries or anything that's bothering you about the process.
So this is my eyebrows after microblading.

FAQs About Aesthetica by Grace's Semi-Permanent Make-Up
Cosmetic's new trend is the semi-permanent make-up. If you are new to semi-permanent cosmetics, semi-permanent make-up practitioner Grace will take you through some of the questions she is most frequently asked.

Semi-permanent make-up is a cutting edge beauty treatment which employs the latest techniques to achieve lasting colour or definition for face, eyebrows, lashes, lips or the eye-line.
The treatment which is technically known as "micropigmentation", is a process of pigment implantation which produces flawless makeup that will last between 1 to 3 years or up to 5 years for some depending on your skin or care since some factors may affect it.
The procedure is both safe and medically approved when carried out by a competent technician. The products used at AestheticabyGrace's Clinic have a history of long-term use and to date there have been no recorded cases of any allergic reactions due to applied pigments. Our products are of the highest quality and were developed by the leading manufacturers of Digital Machines and Semi-permanent Make-up consumables.

Is it expensive?
If you look at the long-term cost and effects. It costs more than a year’s cosmetics bill, but is little compared to two or three years of daily make-up expenses and time being spent applying make-up each time. Just imagine how much extra time you can have. It doesn’t run or wash off and most of all it’s a great time-saver.
It’s worth every penny to make the most of your natural beauty. It really is what we’ve all been waiting for.
