Microblading | The ‘Celebrity’ go to treatment this festive season
For years, celebrities have paved the way when it comes to discovering the best tricks and treatments of the beauty industry. From celebrities like Cindy Crawford endorsing botox for its age-defying effects, to the Kardashian’s swearing by PRP, known more commonly as the Vampire facials, for glowing skin – we can all ‘look to the stars’ for inspiration when it comes to deciding on our own treatment routines. It’s no surprise then that celebrities have been amongst the first to jump on the incredible new benefits that can be achieved through microblading over the last few years. Brows are big business in the beauty industry, and people around the world are enjoying new creative freedom when it comes to deciding on the look they want to achieve – and this is largely down to the incredible microblading treatment.
Microblading is a form of a tattoo, but unlike a regular tattoo, the lines are created with the aid of a hand-held blade rather than a machine to design the desired shape. The result of this is that the pigment used penetrates far less deeply into the layers of the skin. The fine edge of the blades allows skilled technicians to mimic the look and direction of natural hair, allowing clients to harness the perfect brow with zero makeup or time and effort. It is a treatment that can totally transform your face and frame your eyes beautifully, and because of this, it’s easy to see why it is becoming a must-have treatment – especially at Christmas when we all want to look and feel our very best for the festive season.
Since its creation, Microblading has gone from strength to strength, and now there are so many different types of the treatment on offer for clients to choose their favourite look. From ombre brows to the micro feathering look to a newer technique known in the industry as nano brows, there really are no limits to the look that we can now create with our arches. When it comes to achieving the perfect busy, natural-looking brows many aspire to microblading as the go-to treatment. Many of us spend hours each week cultivating the perfect brow to capture a gorgeous selfie – but we all have days where we just can’t seem to get them to play along, and the shapes don’t go how we want or match up evenly. Well, just imagine waking up with your eyebrows already red-carpet ready. You can easily cut a lengthy beauty regime in half and look just as put together and glam make-up free with the ‘I really did wake up like this’ look. When celebrities have to spend so much time in the makeup chair getting ready for events or getting caught out and ‘papped’ on the weekly shop it’s no wonder that so many are turning to microblading to feel incredible with minimal effort.
So, this festive season, let’s take a look at this outstanding microblading treatment that the top celebrities can’t stop talking about. We’ve rounded up five celebrities of different ages and hair colours who have transformed their brow game with the help of microbladed brows and haven’t looked back since.
Gwyneth Paltrow, now 46 years old, tried out microblading for a feathered brow look back in March 2017. With her naturally pale hair colour, and as a result quite undefined blonde brows, she underwent microblading to turn her thinner eyebrows into fuller looking, natural micro feathered brows – and, she looks incredible for it. The beauty of microblading is that a skilled technician can match the pigment to your natural shades to ensure that your brows blend perfectly with your hair colour. So, if you have a pale colouring to your natural hair don’t be put off microblading and worry that you will end up with unnaturally dark brows – you can ask for a consultation before your treatment to make sure that you are 100% happy with how the colour will turn out.
Next up is the lovely Mila Kunis. Mother to a little boy back in 2016, Mila is aged 35 now and decided to try out microblading earlier in March this year. Tagged on Instagram by her micro feathering technician she is proudly smiling to show off the finished look, and we can see gorgeous, natural fluffy dark brows which match her dark hair perfectly. It just goes to show, with a trained microblading technician it really doesn’t matter if your hair is very dark or very light you can still achieve gorgeous natural looking eyebrows to help you feel ready to go out and socialise at a moments’ notice – perfect for the festive season with Christmas events happening right through December.
Adele, one of the biggest recording artists of the 21st century, turned 30 in May this year and looks beautiful with the addition of her microbladed eyebrows. The natural look she has gone for frame her eyes perfectly, and the shape of the elegant arch to her brows helps to give her face an open and friendly look. It’s amazing what such a relatively simple and inexpensive treatment can do to transform a face.
Helen Mirren is not shy when it comes to talking about the benefits of microbladed eyebrows. She openly said when questioned: “I was fed up of my brows barely being there and when one of my girlfriends got it done, I thought that they looked great. They’re very lightly and delicately done — but it means that when I get up in the morning, and I have no makeup on, at least I have eyebrows. It’s made a huge difference.” Helen Mirren is now 72 years old, and like so many other women was fed up of her thinning brows that can occur naturally as we age. Microblading allowed her to get her confidence back and take years off her look – there is no age limit to this treatment – whether you are 18 years old or 80 microblading can completely change the way we feel about our brows and boost our confidence massively.
Last, but certainly, not least is the naturally beautiful Michelle Keegan. Named as FHM’s sexiest woman in the world in 2015 she certainly can turn heads with her stunning looks. Keegan like many other celebrities decided to try out microblading for its amazing time-saving benefits to her beauty regime. She said of the results: “They look very natural and I don’t have to faff around trying to even them out anymore.” We can certainly relate to this, and we imagine many of our readers can too. Perfect brows can be painstakingly difficult to achieve, then at the end of the day we wipe them away and start all over again the next day – with this treatment that is a problem of the past. Microblading can last for up to three years – just imagine all the time you could save knowing you will never have to ‘faff’ to make them look even again. The best bit is that even though the initial treatment is sometimes more costly, although certainly not expensive, the top up treatments are considerably less meaning you can keep your brows looking beautiful for a very reasonable price. Especially when you take into consideration all the money you will save on those expensive makeup brow crafting kits, and on top of that all the time and effort it can take each day.
