Your eyebrows can make or break your makeup look. Strong brows are in right now, but it can be a real pain to re-create your look with eyebrow pencil and powder every morning.
This is why microblading has become so popular. Microblading is a type of semi-permanent tattoo. It creates the look of perfect brows that won’t come off with your makeup remover.
An aesthetician skilled in microblading will create the perfect eyebrows for your colouring and face shape. Done well, they should be indistinguishable from the real thing. However, if you’re less than happy with the result, you’ll be stuck with your new brows for one to three years. For this reason, you want to make sure you choose a great microblade practitioner.
So if you’re sick of filling in your brows and want to take the plunge, try one of these best microblading salons in London.
