Microblading in Seattle
Now that I've hit 50 and AARP eligible, Arry's post got me thinking - I'd like to get a nice set of eyebrows that will look nice and not outdated down the road (i.e. pencil thin, super thick, overly arched) and want to avoid the tattoo ones since I've seen so many elderly Asian women with blue/green brows Do you have a preference for microblading or microshading and why, or is there something more permanent that won't change color? Thanks!

Hi Sue! Most of the old tattoos were done too deep and they used ink instead of the pigment which is what We use for microblading and microshading today! Microblading vs Microshading are very similar it really just depends on the look you are going for and what your brows are currently look like. During your appointment or consult with your artist they will definitely give you their expert suggestions! Let me know if I can answer any other questions for you

Hi Sue - I’m Liesl Gatcheco, the owner of Eyebrowbaby Microblading + Beauty in Ballard. The art form has come a long way since the days of brows turning gray or blue. The pigments used now are made to fade over 1-2 years as our faces change and styles change as well. Gone are the thin brows of the 90’s and full brows are what we see all over Instagram. My approach to microblading/microshading is very natural. I consider facial structure, hair growth patterns, lifestyle and each clients personal preference. It’s all about communication and I usually am pretty conservative for your first appointment unless told otherwise. At the touch up, I can go in to make your browns darker and fuller as needed. The microblading technique applies hair like strokes to the brows and microshading fills in the entire brow for a “powdered” look, as if you filled in your brows with a pencil or eyeshadow. Please let me know if I can answer any more questions for you. The only complaint you’ll have after getting it done is questioning why you didn’t do it any sooner! Cheers!
