There are many women who wonder if they should get permanent makeup. Right now one of the most common practices it to get something called microblading. Women all over the United States are getting this procedure and are very pleased with the results. Here are some things you should know about microblading.

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is when you add a small amount of ink to the eyebrows to give you the exact shape, color and fullness that you want. Most women color in their eyebrows to make them look fuller. They also help to shape them with a pencil to make sure that they have the right arch and lines. If you don't pencil in, your eyebrows could look colorless, thin and have the wrong shape for your face. If the shape is off it will make you look angry, sad, or just be overall unflattering to your face.

Microblading then is a way to get the permanent look that you want without having to pencil them in all the time. You can wake up knowing that you eyebrows look perfect.

What Is The Process For Microblading?

Once you know that you want microblading you might be wondering what it will take to get it all done. First, you will have a consultation with the artist to see if you are even a candidate. You will have to be able to pass certain health tests as well as be older enough to get it one.

After this consultation you will have the eyebrows drawn on. The artist will take time to see exactly what you want. You will not proceed with the process until you are sure that this is the exact look that you are going for. Be very specific about color, shape, size and fullness. If there is anything you don't like, you need to say it. This is permanent so it is important that you are honest with the artist.

Once he or she has the exact look down, you will star the actual makeup. This is much like a tattoo, where they will pull back the top layer of skin and lie down the ink. The site will need time to heal so make sure you use lots of Vaseline on the site to keep it moist. Additionally, you will need to come in and get it filled again right after the initial procedure. Then after than you come in every couple years or so and get them touched up, seeing as the tattoo will fade.

By understanding these things you can determine if microblading is right for you.
