Makeup After Microblading for Even More Radiant Results

Microblading has become a popular solution for achieving perfectly shaped and full eyebrows. But what comes next? How do you apply makeup after microblading to complement your enhanced brows and create a stunning overall look?

In this guide, we will walk you through everything you need to know about makeup after microblading, from choosing the right products to application techniques to enhance your brows and maintain a stunning appearance.

The Importance of Makeup After Microblading

As an eyebrow enhancement technique, applying makeup after microblading may complement and perfect the results. Here's why:

Enhancing Natural Beauty

Makeup serves as a tool to accentuate the beauty of your microbladed eyebrows. It enables you to highlight their shape and provide definition, resulting in a more refined and polished overall look.

Filling in Gaps

Despite the precision of microblading, it may not always completely conceal imperfections or gaps in your eyebrows. Makeup becomes a valuable tool to fill in those remaining areas, ensuring a flawless and seamless finish.

Adapting to Different Occasions

Makeup provides the versatility to tailor your brows according to the occasion. Whether you're aiming for a casual daytime look or a glamorous evening style, you can adapt your eyebrows effortlessly to match the mood and setting.

In essence, incorporating makeup with microblading is essential for achieving the ultimate eyebrow look. It not only enhances the effects of microblading but also adds a personal touch, allowing you to tailor your brows to your specific style and needs.

Steps for Using Makeup Post-Microblading

So, you've just had your microblading done, and your brows are on point. Now, let's talk about the basics of makeup application after the treatment.

Wait for the Healing Process

Following microblading, your eyebrows need some time to heal. Avoid applying makeup for at least 10 days to allow the pigment to settle and prevent infection. Makeup products can introduce bacteria to the healing area, which is a big no-no.

Choose the Right Products

Not all products are created equal. Opt for gentle, hypoallergenic cosmetics that won't irritate your freshly microbladed brows. Look for labels that say "non-comedogenic" and "fragrance-free." These products are less likely to clog your pores and cause any issues.

Patch Test Your Makeup

Before fully committing to makeup after microblading, perform a patch test. This means applying a small amount of your makeup products to a discreet area of your skin to check for any allergic reactions or irritations. It's an essential step to avoid complications.

Taking these precautions when introducing makeup after microblading guarantees a safe and smooth transition, allowing you to maintain the stunning results of your microbladed eyebrows.

Eyebrow Makeup Essentials

Microblading is just one tool in the arsenal for creating the ideal eyebrow look. To maintain perfectly arched brows, below are five beauty must-haves:

  • Eyebrow Pencil: A high-quality eyebrow pencil can help fill in any gaps and define your brows further. Choose a shade that matches your hair color for a natural appearance.
  • Eyebrow Gel: Applying a clear eyebrow gel can help your brows stay in place and look great all day long. It's ideal for those who prefer a more refined style.
  • Eyeshadow Palette: Invest in a neutral-colored eyeshadow palette that can be used to create a soft, everyday eye makeup look.
  • Mascara: Use mascara to enhance your eyelashes and draw attention to your eyes without overpowering your brows.

The right makeup products can significantly enhance your microbladed brows. From filling in gaps with an eyebrow pencil to defining your lashes with mascara, each item helps define your look for both everyday wear and special occasions.

Applying Makeup on Microbladed Eyebrows

Putting on makeup after having microblading done is a process that demands careful attention to detail and precision. Here's a step-by-step guide to make your microblade brows look their best:

Step 1 - Start with a Clean Face

Begin by thoroughly cleansing your face to remove any impurities. Follow up with a moisturizer to hydrate your skin, creating an even and smooth base for makeup application.

Step 2 - Brush Your Brows

Gently comb your microbladed brows using a spoolie brush, aligning them in the direction of hair growth. This helps in evenly spreading the pigment and maintaining its shape.

Step 3 - Fill in Gaps

If you notice any gaps or sparse sections, lightly fill them in with an eyebrow pencil or powder. Use fine, feather-like strokes to mimic natural hair and create a subtle, realistic effect.

Step 4 - Set with Gel or Mascara

Finish off by setting your eyebrows in place with a clear brow gel or mascara to ensure your brows stay put throughout the day.

Following these measures will serve to both preserve and beautify your microbladed brows. The goal is to subtly highlight their features without drawing too much attention away from the microblading.

Best Practices for Makeup Use and Microbladed Brow Care

At the end of the day, it's important to remove your makeup gently to maintain the health of your microbladed brows. Follow these steps:

  • Use a gentle makeup remover to take off your eyebrow makeup, being careful not to rub or tug on the area.
  • Apply a soothing and nourishing night cream to promote skin recovery. Avoid using heavy products around your brows.
  • Less is more when it comes to makeup after microblading. Heavy makeup can overwhelm your brows and diminish their natural appearance.
  • Microblading is semi-permanent, and the color may fade over time. Schedule regular touch-ups to maintain your desired brow shade.
  • Protect your microbladed brows from sun exposure by wearing sunscreen daily and a wide-brimmed hat when outdoors.
  • Sweating can cause the color to fade faster. Consider buying a sweat-resistant eyebrow cream for those times when you are up for some serious exercise.
  • If you are unsure about makeup application after microblading, don't hesitate to consult with your microblading artist for personalized advice.

By adhering to these practical guidelines, you can extend the life of your microbladed brows and keep them looking as fresh and natural as possible.

Notes from Customers

I’ve been going here for 7 months to get waxed by Ana Fisher and if I have one thing to say: PLEASE GO HERE. She is such a delight, very positive and upbeat, likes to converse with you throughout the process, is attentive to how you’re feeling, dedicated to doing her job well, just such an amazing and safe person to go to. The environment is super inviting and clean, very modern, and the appointment system is very smooth and easy to navigate. Ana was the first person I ever went to for my wax and she will continue to be the person I always go to and recommend. 10/10 service and hospitality

I highly recommend! Ana touched up my permanent eye liner on bottom lid, added liner on top lid (which I had previously been told my skin would not take the ink), did my eyebrows and last extensions. I look like a new woman!

I made an appointment for a couple waxing items (modesty has me letting you guess what services). Jenna was just perfect. She was very thorough, exclaiming I was officially “hair free”. Upon inspection I agreed. I’m sold, I’ll go nowhere else for these services.
