Styles of Eyelash Extensions
Your lash artist will be using a teeny-tiny, tweezer-like tool to precisely affix around 160 individual eyelashes to your eyes. They do this by adhering one lash extension onto each of your own natural lashes, one lash at a time. When your natural lash sheds, so does the extension that's attached to it-- that is why they must be touched up every two to three weeks.
Microblading is a technique of cosmetic tattooing performed specifically on the eyebrows. Like earlier methods of cosmetic tattooing, it is done by manually depositing pigment into the second layer of the skin (dermis). But what makes it truly unique is the hand tool used. The unique formation of microblading needles allows the artist to create the look of real eyebrow hairs by tattooing very fine hair-like strokes in the skin.
Check out these commonly asked questions about microblading.
Because you are numbed prior to the procedure, the level of pain experienced can be minimized, but in all honesty, there is definitely some discomfort involved. The best way to describe the discomfort felt during a microblading procedure would be similar to that of a continuous cat scratch.
The skin near the front of your eyebrow is thicker, so this will likely be a lot less painful than the tail of your eyebrow. The tail of your eyebrow sits very close to the temple, where the skin is very thin. The thinner the skin, the more likely you will experience a higher level of discomfort. That being said, everyone's skin and pain threshold is different, but during the procedure, there shouldn't be a point where the pain becomes unbearable.
Does Microblading Hurt?
What Can I Expect After a Microblading Procedure?
Many factors decipher whether or not a person is a good candidate for microblading. The most crucial deciding factors depend on the client's skin condition and health. If they have any pre-existing health conditions or are on any medications, it may be best for the client to wait for a microblading procedure.
Who Should Get Microblading Done?
Just like a typical skin wound, microblading takes about 10 - 14 days to heal before it can get completely wet without disturbing the skin or the healing process. This includes heavy exercise and sweating, showering, and face down swimming. The area will be fully healed 30 days after the procedure was done.
How Long Does Microblading Take to Heal?
No. Microblading itself will not cause scarring. What can cause scarring after a microblading procedure is picking at the healing skin. This is why it is extremely important to make sure your client knows to NOT pick at any scabs or flaking skin after they have had a microblading procedure. Picking could result in the loss of pigment as well as scarring.
Does Microblading Scar?
It really depends on the client and the health of their skin, but microblading procedures should last anywhere from 1 to 3 years. Microblading is not supposed to last forever and will require touch-ups when the pigment begins to fade.
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup and is subject to fading over time due to exfoliation, sun exposure and skincare products that may increase exfoliation of the skin. Microblading should last anywhere from 1 year to 3 years before requiring a touch-up.
How Long Does Microblading Last?
No! Microblading is done to enhance what you already have to make the eyebrows look as natural as possible. Microblading is a great solution for people who have over-plucked their eyebrows, or who have naturally very thin/light eyebrows and want to accentuate the look of eyebrows on their face. It is not necessary, nor recommended for a client to get rid of any natural hair he or she may already have.
Do you have to shave off your eyebrows to get it done?
Your lash artist first separates your lower and upper lashes with gel pads. A silicone pad in either size XS, S, M, L or XL is then placed on your eyelid with water soluble glue. The lashes are separated with a tweezer, and the solution is then ready to be applied.
Each solution is placed on for 6-8 minutes each. Each solution is removed with water and a q-tip. The remaining glue is then cleaned up. The results last 8-10 weeks. You must avoid water and steam for the first 24 hours.

Traditionally airbrush makeup lasts about 6 to 10 hours longer than traditional wedding makeup. Mainly because it's an ultra fine concentrated mist that absorbs directly into the skin—not merely sitting on top of it—giving it longer durability. Overall it feels featherlight on the skin, yet can withstand heat, humidity, tears, and sweat.
Why? Most airbrush makeup products are silicone based and will be applied for buildable coverage. Investing in a high quality product for your wedding day will ensure that your makeup doesn’t move from the first kiss to the last kiss.
