Microblading – One Cure for the Summertime Blues
“Summertime and the living is easy,” might be apropos when we’re at our favorite resort or lolling on the beach. For most busy Los Angeles area people, however, their summer is more similar to an oft-recorded hit song, the one that threatens to raise a holler about “workin’ all summer just to try and earn a dollar.” Yes, the “Summertime Blues” are all too familiar to us grownups, and we may think wistfully of the days when we had a long summer vacation.
On the other hand, if we’re clever, busy people can carve out some time for life’s pleasures –every summer and year round – by employing the smartest timesaving hacks. Beverly Hills Permanent Makeup offers some seriously time-efficient beauty options led by microblading – a beautiful and extremely natural-looking alternative to traditional eyelash makeup.
“Where Do You Find the Time?”
Busy people can accomplish an awful lot and others often wonder how they manage it, but the truth is that people who accomplish a lot are more judicious with how they spend their time. Taking 20 or 30 minutes every morning to perfect their eyebrows might have once been unavoidable for people whose jobs require them to be always camera ready – but that’s no longer the case. Microblading can save you hours each week and with outcomes that are so hard to tell from natural eyebrows people will wonder how you find the time to do your makeup so beautifully every day – and on such a busy schedule!
If you’re the active type, people may express wonder at how you look so good while engaging in vigorous exercise without any hint of running makeup – even when they can see that you’re perspiring. If you want to look as good on the tennis court or the gym as you do at a cocktail lounge, Beverly Hills Permanent Makeup offers not only microblading for eyebrows but semi-permanent lip enhancements and permanent eyeliner as well.
How Do Permanent Makeup and Microblading Work?
All of our work at Beverly Hills Permanent Makeup begins with placing tiny amounts of pigment underneath the skin. People will sometimes say that permanent makeup is like a tattoo, but that’s not exactly true. It is extremely detailed and may involve adding only one drop at a time. Microblading is somewhat different and it’s even more detailed. More dots of pigment are injected one dot at a time to create an appearance that can be indistinguishable from real eyebrows – especially when performed by a leading makeup artist like our own Ellie.
The realism of microblading makes it a popular choice not only for appearance-conscious people who want to look their absolute best all the time but also for people with conditions that cause hair to fall out, such as alopecia or for those who may be on chemo or radiation therapy. Even very traditional men who would never be caught dead wearing makeup under normal circumstances love their microblading outcomes because they look nothing like makeup!
Is Microblading and Permanent Makeup Really Permanent?
With regular touch-ups, it definitely can be. While the results will appear immediately, at first they may look overly dark but will gradually fade into something that looks more natural. After roughly six months to a year or so, the results will fade to the point that a touchup will be required – but the time required for a bi-yearly or annual touch-up will be nothing compared to that lengthy daily makeup ritual.
