Of all the beauty treatments available today, this new process of semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing that’s become so popular has been on my radar in a major way. Botox and lip plumping injections…not so much….but tell me I can wake up with perfect brows every single morning and I will move heaven and earth to get on that list!

Just to give you a little perspective, I’m the kind of girl who does not leave the house without penciling in my brows at least a little bit. Nothing else can be done, but that’s a ‘do not leave home without it’ kind of task for me. My ‘superpowers’ cannot be unleashed without them.

So basically, I’m no good to anyone without my brows, you guys. Ha!

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by Melba Nguyen, a microblading artist in the Prairieville area, who offers her services here locally in Blume Beauty Bar (she also does eyelash extensions and is a makeup artist as well). So, she was working on creating some video content of how the process works for those who weren’t already familiar with it and she asked if I would be her subject for the video. To say that I was over the moon excited to do it would be an understatement.

To be honest though, while I was excited, I was also a bit nervous about the process….I mean, would there be pain? Would I like the shape of my brows after? Would I like the color? How long is the recovery time?

I had questions walking in, but you know what? Once I met Melba, saw past examples of her work, I really felt comfortable letting her decide the best shape and color for me.

Is this going to hurt?…

She walked me through the process, showed me exactly what the shape of my brows were going to look like through the preliminary marking process. And I will tell you right off that I felt no pain at all. None. She applies a high quality numbing cream to the area and once you sit with it on for about 20 minutes, you are good to go! I held my breath on that first stroke, expecting to squirm a bit, but it was a total breeze.

The microblading application time was less than 30 minutes and the minute I sat up, I had perfect brows! I was blown away by the way the strokes look JUST like single hairs. And the definition it gives my face makes me feel like a million bucks.

The results…

This is a two appointment process, so I will go back a month from now to do the final touch up and fill in anything that might have gotten missed or just to add even more definition.

You can see my results from the first round below. So amazing the difference, right?! I am SO anxious to get back in there to get that last little ‘icing on the cake’ as Melba calls it.
