Ask Cathy – Permanent Brows or Microblading

by | Nov 1, 2016 | Beauty & Bridal & Fashion

 Dear Cathy, I hardly have any eyebrows and have to draw them on everyday which takes quite a while, not to mention every day they look different.  I get so frustrated but permanent makeup has always made me a little nervous. I’m concerned if I don’t like it or I want a different color as my hair color changes, but I need to do something.  My friend just had permanent brows and eyeliner done by you and it looks really good and very natural.  She said you did hairline strokes for her. Also what is the difference between microblading and permanent makeup?  – Michele in SCV
Dear Michele,
Permanent makeup is wonderful for those like yourself who don’t have much brow hair, or who’s eyesight isn’t what it used to be, unsteady hands, or just busy. It’s a definite time saver! Not to mention you wake up with the same beautiful brows each morning and don’t have to wonder what shape they will take on that day! To put your mind at ease, the way I work is you will see it before we actually start the process, so there is no guessing whether you will like it or not.  If we are doing permanent eyebrows, I numb the brow area with an effective topical numbing technique that makes any pain minimal. Then I draw in to fill the spots your brows, measuring them and getting them as close to technically perfect as we can.  I also take into account the shape that flatters you and you are comfortable with.  It is not until we have them just the way we both want the brows to look, that we move into the permanent makeup room. I go over color and use my expertise to guide you to the most complimentary color for your skin tone, hair and eye color, etc. Once we start the actual procedure it takes under 30 minutes, for brows or eyeliner. You will be happy to know, that we can change, lighten or darken the color of the brows, eyeliner at anytime, to suit your needs or desires.  Permanent makeup will get softer in time.
