Doesn’t matter how much research you put into it; there is always a possibility of your eyebrow embroidery going wrong. But fret not, because eyebrow embroidery is only semi-permanent and totally fixable.
You can find countless stories of botched eyebrows online. However, eyebrow embroidery is not permanent and it can be easily fixed if you choose a skilled artist. People are sometimes not satisfied by the shape and color of their eyebrows and it is very common. If you are also someone who recently got Microblading done but now you are not really sure if this is what you wanted, then you have landed in the right place.
In this blog, we will tell you what are some of the most common mistakes that immature artists make when Microblading. But hold on, because we will also tell you exactly what to do if you get your eyebrows wrong.
What Are The Common Mistakes Technicians Make?
The most important thing that you need to keep in mind when getting eyebrow embroidery done is to choose the right artist. Reading some of the customer reviews and checking out their work on socials is always a good idea. You should also discuss what type of shape and color you are looking for before the final appointment. A skilled artist will always guide you about what shape and type of Microblading will suit your face and style. On the other hand, someone who hasn’t had any professional training will not be able to answer your questions and address your fears.
The most common mistake that immature technicians make is not choosing the right eyebrow shape for their clients. Eyebrows play an important role in making your face look more prominent and your expressions more subtle. This is the reason why it is very important to take into account the proportions of your client’s face and choose a shape accordingly that will give your client a soft look.
Another mistake that artists often make is not paying attention to the areas where the skin is too thin. This can cause the pigment to be deposited too deep and it heals with a blue or grayish undertone.
Can These Mistakes Be Corrected?
Good news for all the people with botched eyebrows: these mistakes can easily be rectified. So how do we correct a botched eyebrow job?
According to professional eyebrow artists, the most common and effective way to correct an eyebrow that is too deep and wrongly shaped is laser removal. Laser removal is going to lift the pigment even if your eyebrow shape is too deep or too dark.
However, if you only have a few minor mistakes in the shape and your pigment is not too dark, the mistakes can also be covered by another semi-permanent eyebrow technique called micro shading.
Microshading is a kind of eyebrow embroidery technique that uses a combination of feather strokes and pin dots to create an ombre powder to pomade brow makeup look. This type of eyebrow embroidery looks very natural and seamlessly blends into your skin without looking fake. This is the reason why it is the best option for you to fix some minor mistakes and gaps in your brow placement. However, this method will not necessarily fix a wrong brow shape. It will only work if your previously done eyebrows are symmetrical and there are some minor imperfections that you want to fix.
On the flip side of the coin, technicians are not the only ones to blame for badly done eyebrows. While it may seem like the best option, choosing an inexpensive place is not always the best decision. Eyebrow embroidery and Microblading is an art form that requires utmost precision and the right tools to do correctly. But this is not the case most of the time. People with no experience or training in eyebrow embroidery get behind the tools and make everything worse. This can cost you even more in the long run because then you will have to pay extra to get the bad job fixed.
Hence we recommend you always check out the technician’s portfolio before deciding anything. We also advise you to not fall into the trap of cheap prices, always make sure that the artist is authentic and he or she knows what they are doing. Because despite it being a fixable process, bad and botched embroidery can be a nightmare to deal with.
The bottom line is that yes, eyebrow embroidery can be corrected but there is a caveat; you should wait until your previous Microblading is completely healed before you go in to get it fixed. The healing process can take from fifteen days to a month. But this wait will all be worth it when you finally get the results that you wanted in the first place
