It’s all about the brows. From runways to fashion ads, models are flaunting thick and full eyebrows. Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo done with a superfine pen that etches in “hair-like” strokes that fill in thin eyebrows to give a more natural look.
“Brows really define and frame your face and open up your eyes,” says Sarika Patel, Microblading Specialist/Permanent Makeup Artist with Glo Medical Aesthetics. “Microblading adds more dimension and is ideal for women who pencil in their brows every day.”
It requires two appointments to get the ideal brow and takes about two hours per session. Microblading lasts 12–18 months. Prices range from $550-$650 and consultations are free. Glomedmemphis.com
If Microblading is out of your budget, for now, Sarika recommends these eyebrow pencils to give you a natural look.
