OMG, Your beauty is fake!
I am sure most of us have heard unwanted opinions regarding beauty. Why do you want permanent makeup? Don’t colour your hair! Botox is deceptive, don’t do it! Natural features are the best. Blah! Blah! Blah!

Well, guess what? If that’s what you think, you are living in a bubble. Nobody is perfect. To the women who have no eyebrow hair at all, it makes a huge difference. There is nothing wrong with boosting your confidence by getting stuff done on your body, by YOUR OWN CHOICE.
What is Microblading?
It is a form of tattooing over the eyebrows. It is done by creating hair strokes in the eyebrow to simulate the appearance of natural hair. It lasts for about 14-17 months and needs to be touched up to retain the look.
Process and Price Reveal
The process takes about an hour. It starts with putting a topical numbing cream on your eyebrows. It’s left over in the area for 20 to 25 minutes followed by removing and then cleaning the area. Remember girls, our face is not symmetrical. One eyebrow is always higher than the other one. The ultimate goal is to make them look as symmetrical as possible. The next step is to map out the eyebrows using a thread-like material and a scale.
Once the mapping is done, the artist draws hair-like strokes between the gaps of your eyebrow hair. It is then covered by a pigment that matches the nearest shade of your natural hair. After the stimulation is done, the remaining pigment is wiped off. Voila, it’s done!
Renuka Krishna says, “It can take anywhere between 25,000 to 40,000 Indian Rupees for the complete eyebrow microblading procedure. This cost includes two sittings, spaced 45 days apart, and the aftercare cream.”
- After care cream and oil application is a must (use Q tips).
- You cannot wet your eyebrows as it might fade the pigment.
- Avoid gym, makeup, steam baths.
- Don’t forget the touch-up sessions.
This procedure is perfect for anyone who wants to enhance their brows.
