Lash Lift & Tint

In the last few years, I have noticed a frenzy over lash extensions, microblading, permanent lip tint, and lash lifts. I am someone who tries to keep fairly low maintenance, meaning a lash extension would not be a good choice for me, a week in I would be left with only a few straggler lashes and I would not be the type to go in for regular touch-ups. Which is why I decided to try a lash lift and tint. This uses your real lashes but applies a lift that can last around 20 days and a tint to make your lashes stand out more. I’ve always had light lashes and ones that grew straight out, so without an eyelash curler and some good mascara, they would be virtually invisible.

Today I was fortunate enough to get a lash lift and tint, and an unexpected brow tint, which I am absolutely in love with. The beautiful Karina from Wild Love Miami took amazing care of me and used all-natural products to assure my lashes would not receive any damage.

The process took around 30 minutes and was quite comfortable considering you had to keep your eyes closed.

Overall, I am so happy with the results, the process and the esthetician! This is a much more reasonable option for me to still enjoy the fake eyelash look, while keeping it natural and having minimal upkeep. Make sure to follow my instagram @aroonmelane to follow along! And Wild Love Miami @wildlovemiami.

Everything You Need to Know About Microblading

I’m sure most of you have heard about micro blading by now, a technique used to make your brows look naturally fuller and shaped, without having to fill them in!

Microblading defined is “ a form of semi-permanent makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments.”

I’ve been hesitant to try Microblading, because I heard of stories where the eyebrows ended up looking like a mess, or was under the impression it would be painful. And boy was I wrong!

A couple of months ago I spoke with Anna, from Perfect Brows by Anna, and she walked me through the process and what to expect. I was still hesitant on the procedure and gave myself several weeks to decide wether or not I wanted to try. Never having to fill in my brows again was a dream come true! After following Anna and seeing the amazing work she did, I decided I would give it a go. And boy am I pleased with the results!

I shared my experience on my Instagram and so many of my lovely followers were impressed and amazed at the job Anna did. I had so many questions about the procedure that I wanted to make a full post talking all about Microblading.

What to expect

The procedure took about an hour and a half. Time may vary depending on how much strokes need to be put in your brow to create the proper shape. Every brow and every person is different, but the hour and a half it took me flew by. I will also be going in for my touch up, a month after the initial treatment.

The pain is very minimal. I was expecting it to feel more like when you get your brows threaded or tweezed, but it was honestly even less painful then both. Anna does not use numbing cream because it causes the skin to get soft and mushy which can lead to the technician creating too deep of strokes which may lead to scarring or other unwanted outcomes. I also did not bleed.

How it works. Anna used a very very small utensil that has 18 or 19 tiny little needles used to scratch and place pigment into the skin.

The sound. There is a Velcro like sound during the process. The sound comes from your eyebrow hair gliding between the tiny needles and also the sound of your skin being scratched.

Final Thoughts

I am so so so pleased with the work Anna did, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get their brows done. The process was much easier than I anticipated and there was hardly any pain at all. After working with Anna, I do not think there is another technician out there who I would feel comfortable with. Her work was superb and I’m so excited with my new brows! Check her out here.
