Pro’s and Con’s for Microblading

The other day, I went to grab some lunch at a nearby restaurant and noticed the waitress had amazing eyebrows. As someone who really loves and appreciates makeup I complimented her. She was really excited to receive a compliment on her eyebrows because she had just gotten them done a few weeks ago. Now, I was slightly confused when she said she just got them done because it wasn’t like lashes. I didn’t understand what she meant because I had thought she just drew them on today and it was just a good eyebrow day. She explained how she had gotten a microblading treatment done on her eyebrows. I had heard about microblading before but I had no idea it could look this natural and realistic. She not only looked like she had full defined brows but also almost like she had a little bit of makeup on as well! She said she chose to get the ombre microblading done which is a little more like eyebrow makeup more than the natural hair strokes being drawn in. She said her technician basically drew in like little dots to create an ombre effect which made it look like she had makeup applied to create that look. She also had hair strokes drawn in to fill up some empty spaces between her real eyebrow hairs. She said they applied numbing cream for like 20-30 minutes until the eyebrow area was numb. This step is crucial because depending on whether or not the numbing cream is applied, you will either feel immense pain or no pain at all. The whole microblading process is like getting eyebrow hairs tattooed onto your face. Your face is pretty sensitive and getting tattooed on your face will be pretty painful. She mentioned that she got a say through the entire process on how to shape the brows, how full she wanted them, what pigments (colors) she wanted, etc. She loved the lighter to darker look for her eyebrows because that is actually how she applied her eyebrow makeup prior to the procedure. She mentioned ever since she got this procedure done, she has had absolutely no regrets and love how people compliment them thinking she applied the makeup herself when in reality she has no makeup on at all! I was so intrigued because truly her results were flawless. I couldn’t tell she had no makeup on! She said it was pretty pricey but she hasn’t had to go to Sephora or ulta for eyebrow products which can add up over time anyway. She said she usually spends anywhere from 30-40 minutes getting ready every morning but now her daily beauty routine has been reduced in half! She just applies BB cream and eyeliner and is out the door. She said the pros definitely outweigh the cons with microblading.

Pros: save money, save time, save effort, less stress, get many compliments, always walk out with perfect brows, permanent eyebrows that always look the same

Cons: expensive investment at first

She loves how her eyebrow look doesn’t depend on the day and doesn’t look different from one day to the next. Before microblading, she had a hard time creating the perfect shape for her particular eyebrows because she doesn’t have a lot of natural eyebrow hairs. I was loving the look but couldn’t help to think about the future with this. What if the brow trend changes? I mean within just 20 years the popular brow look went from pencil thin eyebrows that just looked like lines on your face to defined arched brows and to full thick eyebrows right now. I mean wasn’t she worried that trends may change and her eyebrows will be stuck like that forever? She began to laugh and let me know that although it is called permanent makeup, microblading isn’t actually permanent! It is semi-permanent makeup and due to the special pigments they use, the microblading look fades within a year or two. Check out microblading houston for all the best services in the local area. 

Why you should hire a local towing service

Just the other day I realized why it’s so important to keep your local towing company’s number saved in your phone! I was driving home late at night after a long day of work and suddenly out of nowhere, my car stops in the middle of the road! I had to pull over but I was freaking out because it was late and dark. I had no idea what to do. I pulled out my phone and looked up towing College Station and chose the first College Station towing company that I felt I could trust and called them. They responded very quickly and thank goodness they are open 24 hours so they had no problem coming to help me as soon as they could. They had such a fast response I was surprised! They truly saved me when I was scared and worried by myself. They came to my location and assessed my car to see what was the issue, because I had no idea. They figured it was my battery and so they jump started my car for me and made sure it was functioning properly. The price for the service was so affordable and honestly I was so shocked at how professional and quick they were. Towing services usually have a negative rep but I am so thankful I had a company I could call during that time of day.

It’s important to be prepared at all times, and thankfully I had internet on my phone but in the case that you have bad signal, I would recommend saving their number right now! It doesn’t hurt to be prepared with numbers that can assist and help you in different situations. I know I can depend on them to help me ASAP as they are open 24 hours 7 days a week. Although they only helped me start my car again, they offer many services! If your car suddenly stops due to empty gas tank, they can go to you and provide empty gas tank solutions. If you get into a car wreck they can tow your car and take care of the transportation of the car. If you have a personal parking space but an unauthorized car is parked there you can call College Station towing and they will tow it. It’s crazy how many different services they offer but I’m not complaining! During those serious situations where you need a reliable towing service to take care of your towing needs, it is great to have that assurance that they can help me. I really am amazed at their work ethic and how efficient and quick they are. Now I make sure to save any numbers that will help me when I’m stuck in a situation that leaves me helpless. With those numbers saved it’s like carrying around a little phone book with important numbers. Especially living in College Station I know I can’t rely on my parents in Houston to come help me immediately in those types of situations. Towing service costs vary depending on the service but are still very affordable in my opinion. So if you’re in the Brazos county area, search in order to find College Station towing services.
