Long story short, I wasn't really educated on microblading. I didn't realize that I would have to drop about $500 for it to last at the most a year just so that it would look like hair stokes (which I don't even love anyway!) Once I kinda figured that out I kinda gave up and figured I'd be living my life dip brow jar after dip brow jar, sure #anastasiabeverlyhills would love me but it just gets old after a while ya know!?!?
Anyways, I was in Ulta Ocala a few weeks ago and I was looking at the new benefit brow kits and I hear these two girls talking about tattooed eyebrows.... I'm not joking I had to eavesdrop!!! So the one says to the other "I can't believe your eyebrows are tattooed" so I turn around, not really sure what I was expecting to see... Then she says "your mom really does good work, are hers the same?" So I have to walk over, I'm like I was listening to your conversation OMGoodness your eyebrows are tattooed? They look like they were the shape of the Anastasia beverly hills high arch stencil, I'm not joking!! I had to walk closer, I.WOULD.HAVE.NEVER.KNOWN! I swear her brows look like that of an instagram celebrity!!! She actually works at Ulta (well at benefits brow bar in Ulta) her name is Amanda, she's fabulous if you need a wax go see her.... So she gives me her Mom's card, I called that night for an appointment! I was not putting that off for one more day, her brows are that good!
So let's get to the good stuff... Debbie is a makeup artist, she's been doing permanent makeup for 24 years now and she's a perfectionist. After all your face is like a walking business card for her, she wants your brows on point!!! She's even more passionate about brows then me and that's really saying something!!!
So this is the what's what.. You go in, she draws on your brows and does nothing until you approve them. She drew my brows on so fast I was expecting to look in the mirror and not be happy. Boy was I wrong, she drew them on better then me and way faster! Wow, my brows had never been penciled in that good before! Here's a little before and after... You can also see more of her work here.
Here's the day after we're going to call this day one.
So as you can see a little darker.. Let's move on to day two.
Still really dark but you can see them getting smaller. Here's day 3.
You can see they are starting to scab a bit, the scabs will be the most thick at the front because that's the biggest part. Here's day 4.
Up next is day 5 this is the first day a piece of the scab came off, so I have a few pics of this day. I should also mention when the scab comes off the color is lighter, the color it's supposed to be. It just looks different then the darker still scabbed parts.
Day 6 you can see a bit more peeling here.
Next up is day 8, they were probably the worst here. Again though, this is normal all part of the process to phenomenal brows.
Day 9 scab free, I think they are looking pretty good. I could wait any longer to tell you guys!!!
I can not tell you how happy it makes me to #wakeupwithmakeup. Not only that but I absolutely adore Debbie, she is one of the sweetest people I have ever meet. If you are in the area or even if your not, she's worth traveling for. Choosing someone to put something permanent on your face is huge, make your decision wisely. Actually 50% of her work are people who originally went to someone else and they were jacked up. She a color specialist. For me it was a million times worth it, I would do it again in a heartbeat. You might be wondering about the pain? She numbs you up really well and I didn't find it to be bad at all. I mean maybe a little uncomfortable but that's it. Her prices for this start at $250 and she runs a lot of specials. Really though, I spent that in brow products so again #worthit! Her favorite part is the touch up, she says they might come in as sisters but they will leave as twins. She likes to be a little more cautious when on your first visit until she sees how you heal and I for one really appreciate that. I go back in 6 weeks for the touch up! #excited They already look amazing though, in my opinion! You can go to her Facebook page here and check out more of her work.
Can't wait to show you my update! I will probably do that on youtube and link it here. Here's more pic's to give you a better comparison.
So happy and if you were even considering g doing this, my advice!?!? Go for it you won't regret it, just make sure you pick the right person (hint wake up with makeup by Debbie.) I will recommend her until i'm blue in the face, she's that good. Also if you were considering microblading make sure you research it. Debbie also has a good write up about it on her Facebook page so check that out. I'm so glad that I went into Ulta that day and saw Amanda because I can honestly it's changed my life and it's only been 10 days!
