It’s been about two weeks since I’ve had my microblading done, and I thought I would jump on here quick to talk about it.
First off, when I first thought about getting this done I had to ask myself if I was doing it for the right reasons. I’ve never had good brows but after Kerrigan was born, what I did have started to thin out/fall out. Being someone who does post those selfies, I never wanted to get super close up because my brows were embarrassing. Was I vain? Probably, but the way I felt about my eyebrows were the way that one may feel about their nose, chin, lips etc. It was an insecurity. I’m not about to divulge into “love yourself”, “God made you this way”, “embrace your insecurities” because frankly it’s a load of crap. I’ve told my husband I want a boob job after we are done having kids, and fortunately for me we only want one more. I was blessed with the ability to successfully breastfeed and do it well. Which has left me with very, very sad frost detectors. So yes, I will fix them to make myself feel better because at one point..what God gave me were ok, now they are used and abused. Heck, I’m even getting braces at the end of this summer because I don’t like how my teeth look, talk about price of beauty.
So back to my eyebrows, why not fix them instead of taking 15-20 minutes a day filling them in. Note:For people who say “I don’t even notice eyebrows”, trust me you actually do. I started to research it about 6 months ago and before Christmas brought it up to Adam and he actually was totally on board. Anything that helped me get ready faster was worth muchos dollares in his eyes. So I made the appointment with Anna Johnson at Anna Johnson Studios. There aren’t very many hits in the ole’ Google search for microblading in the metro so I honestly had three choices. I chose Anna after a free consultation. Her studio is this small, quaint and relaxing space in a large building with several other small studios each rented out. The place was inviting, clean, and personal. She herself was so friendly, knowledgable, and beautiful! I immediately was like yes, please, do my brows woman. She measured, traced, drew, whatever it was that she did (I was falling asleep) and talked about how they should and would look. I made my appointment for a week later.
Feel free to look up microblading on Instagram or youtube, you will see how it’s done without me explaining it. So to wrap this up, she did the outline of my brows after mapping them out which did hurt a bit, but after that she was able to numb them and it was virtually painless. It took about two hours and when she had me sit up to look at them, it was like seeing your child for the first time. I couldn’t stop staring. This is what God meant to give me before plucking and waxing in middle school-high school ruined them.
I tried taking a picture each day but I’m really bad at stuff like that… so here’s what I have.
