💉got my first tattoo by @christina_sugarinstudio
! i’ve always been curious about getting my eyebrows shaded or microbladed, but was so nervous since it’s on my face! i actually didn’t start doing anything to my brows until a few years ago when i noticed that putting a bit of brow powder made a big difference in opening up my face. even though it only took a minute or so, the problem was that i’m not great at make up and would often make them uneven 😂. having them ready to go at all times was so enticing to me! i also didn’t know who to trust with my brows, so pushed it off for a long time. finally i found @christina_sugarinstudio
who also did my lash lift. after a lot of thinking and questions, i decided to go with ombré shaded brows per christina’s suggestion because she said as time goes on they look most natural. it’s semi-permanent and should last about 3 years.
first we numbed my brows, then she spent a long time mapping out my brows using her special technique that she actually teaches classes on! mapping is important as i wouldn’t be down for someone tattooing my brows freehand. then we chose my color. the tattoo process itself was not painful! it feels like a little zap, but i actually almost fell asleep a couple times. @christina_sugarinstudio
was so careful and had me check the shape throughout the whole process, so i was always completely at ease. she even brought me kbbq kettle chips because my stomach was a serious orchestra last time i was getting my lashes lifted 🤣.
although i was warned, the healing process was a bit shocking. they were dark like frida kahlo, which i actually didn’t mind, but the scabbing looked pretty funny especially since i was in a wedding before it finished peeling off. i suggest giving yourself 2 full weeks before you’ll see what the final product looks like. now my brows have softened and look so natural without having to do anything to them when i wake up. #iwokeuplikethis
please note: any negative comments are not welcome here! i’ve already received a bunch via dm while they were healing saying they’re too dark or now i’m ugly. this is my face, ya’ll! take it or leave it! ✌🏼
