Wasn’t there a movie line that said the eyebrow is the window to the face? Ok maybe I made that up haha but seriously if there is one facial feature that can completely change your face it’s your brows. I wanted to give a 1 month post appointment microblading update on my recovery, the healing process and the benefits to having your brows microbladed.
Ok so first things first. I wrote a very informational post all about microblading last month after I got mine done. You can read that post here. The post is filled with the process, type of brows I got and what to expect. Basically all your microblading questions answered.
After a month I made my second follow up appointment with Clara at Modern Beauty Studio. The follow up appointment is crucial and honestly where your brows come to life.
WHAT HAPPENS AT YOUR FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENT
Clara looked over my brows and added in any additional strokes that were needed. After your initial appointment your brows will fade so the follow up helps really define them and fill in where you may need more strokes.
This appointment is much less entailed compared to the first. I was only here for about an hour and 1/2 and had Summer with me so that should pretty much tell you that the appointment was pretty quick. No mapping involved just defining the strokes and filling in where you need more strokes.
I had Clara add some additional hairs near my base because after becoming used to my new brows I actually felt I wanted them even fuller so I had her add more of a feathering near my base so I will need to go back and have those strokes touched up once more.
THE BENEFITS TO MICROBLADING
Microblading my brows was hands down the best decision I have ever made. I had zero recovery. Meaning no pealing, flaking, major color loss or irritation. I don’t have to wax anymore. I don’t have to color my brows and shape them with pencil. I wake up and they are done and always looking on point.
MY OVERALL FEEDBACK
Ever since getting them done I now notice brows so much more. Not all microblading is created equally, however. Be sure to do your research when looking for an artist. If you are in the tri-state area I cannot recommend Clara at Modern Beauty Studio enough. Her work is topnotch. I can’t tell you how many people have stopped me about my brows since going. I have also heard horror stories of people getting their brows microbladed and not being happy. Do your research. Tons of good info in this post of what you should look for in an artist. As mentioned in my last blog post Clara checked all the boxes and I am grateful for what she has done for me.
Thinking of giving your brows a makeover? Clara was kind enough to offer all my followers 10% off brows, lashes or lip services. Use code “Leo” when booking your appointment here. Next up for me? Lashes. Get ready Clara! I’ll report back to you all after that appointment!
