Microblading: An Eyebrow Shaping Technique for Women Over 40

Eyebrow ShapingA perfect set of brows frames the face and brings out our best features – but our brows lose hair as we age. As women enter menopause, hormones, like estrogens, prostaglandin, and progesterone, decline and skin lose elasticity, causing brittle and sparse brows. But that doesn’t mean it is game over for women in their 40s. That means women need to learn how to create fuller, more natural brows. In July, we gave you three eyebrow shaping mistakes to avoid. This month, we’re telling you about microblading, an eyebrow shaping technique to get your brows looking like those of your teenage daughter – thick, bushy, symmetrical and healthy.

Microblading Lasts for Two Years

Whether you’re going brow-bald or you’re an over-zealous plucker, there is one method that will save you time each morning when mastering your brows – and that’s micro-blading. Unlike a permanent tattoo that inks deep into the skin, micro-blading deposits just enough pigment under the skin, imitating hair-like strokes. Micro-blading is a brilliant solution for those who want to get their original brow shape back as it leaves behind a bold, symmetrical eyebrow shape. A popular technique that creates a natural-looking set of brows, this eyebrow shaping treatment is not permanent as it fades over two years, saving time and money and keeping your face looking younger and symmetrical.

The Perfect Brows Knocks Years off a Face

Brow shaping is all about angles and geometry, and the perfect set of arches will knock years off your face. Much like finding the right lipstick shade to complement your skin tone or the perfect cocktail dress to flatter your body shape, finding the perfect set of arches comes down to knowing what brow styles flatter your face shape best. That is something your eyebrow artist will explore before a micro-blading treatment.

At Face to Face Beauty & Make-up Design School, we believe that the perfect brow is the ideal finish to a flawless makeup look. As one of the top internationally accredited make-up and beauty schools in South Africa, we can teach you all you need to know about eyebrow shaping techniques in our beauty short courses, like Skin Care & Eye Therapy, among many other options.
