It can be tiring to have to wake up each morning and fill in your eyebrows and then worry about them looking great all day. If you are looking for a way to keep your brows looking great consistently, you have probably found that you have more than one option when it comes to adding pigmentation to your eyebrows. Microblading and permanent makeup are two of those options. If you are having a hard time deciding between them, keep reading to discover the differences and which one is best for you.
- Microblading: This is a considered a semi-permanent procedure that adds pigment to your already existing brows using small, hair-like strokes. Microblading pigment should last between 1-3 years, with yearly touchups sometimes needed to keep the appearance you desire. Microblading gives a more natural look than permanent makeup because the pigmented strokes blend in nicely with your existing eyebrow hair.
- Permanent Makeup: As the name implies, permanent makeup is a tattoo, with permanent pigmentation applied to the eyebrow area. It usually replaces the entire natural eyebrow, giving a look of an eyebrow fully applied by makeup. This can create a bold and striking look but can’t ever achieve the natural look of Microblading. So which application you choose really depends on what look you want for your eyebrows and how permanent you want the results to be.
