Hey ladies /mamas /friends!
Can we have a little real talk? I have always loved makeup, I’m a girly girl in some sorts, but who has time to put on a full face every day when you are a mommy?! Makeup has become a crunch time routine for me, usually slapped on in the car stopped at a red light… Can you hear me mamas? Like many women my life of glam makeup has dwindled down as I became a mom. Yes, there are still those times that I put in the effort but unfortunately it’s usually for auditions, when on set filming or if my husband is lucky, a hot date night. But if I’m not on set or auditioning, you usually find me in no makeup, a baseball cap and yoga pants. Hello mommy wear! If I’m not feeling my best and going for the no makeup look I would put on some concealer and mascara. But for the most part, when home, I like a clean, fresh face, free of makeup because I feel as though most products are packed with chemicals that really age your skin.
It’s always the balancing act we mamas find ourselves in, when we juggle so much and yet still have to find time to maintain ourselves and our looks. So my search for the easiest, fastest way to get ready in the mornings have landed me to MICROBLADING! Microblading is a semi-perminent tattoo that fills in your brows to make them look fully done all the time. Eyebrows are arguably the most important facial feature! You fill in your eyebrows, they frame your face and there you go- you feel like you have your makeup done without actually having to put on ANY makeup at all.
The first time I saw this online I was like No – not for me.. it looks too much, it costs too much and it’s gonna hurt. But after having my own microblading experience, I will tell you first hand it’s actually very natural looking after the pigment settles. Angela at Expressions Brows Studio is the MAGIC Queen! and now I don’t think I could ever go without it! The cost of the microblading experience is not expensive if you consider what you spend on getting your eyebrows done – the color, getting them waxed or threaded or the makeup you buy to fill them in. For me it’s worth every penny!
After taking the risk with having them microbladed the first time – I was hooked! Never having to pencil in my eye brows again was the bonus. I loved that I could have no makeup on and be on the go and still look like I wasn’t pale and sickly in the face. As long as my eyebrows are done I feel like my face is put together. But cutting a few minutes out of getting ready time is the best part. Before I would spend so much time stressing that my eyebrows were even but Angela from Expressions Brows Studio made them symmetrical and now I have brows that I LOVE every day, thanks to my microblading experience.
