Flora Ku Several of my friends (also Asian) have gotten their brows done by Aileenie Gurat--their brows look amazing. Aileenie's IG is @luxelabseattle.
Aileenie Gurat ^^^ that’s me! Do your research on several artists and check out their styles.
Arry Yu Thanks, everyone - appreciate the leads! Anyone try it yet or have done it themselves? :)
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50 and AARP eligible, Arry's post got me thinking - I'd like to get a nice set of eyebrows that will look nice and not outdated d...

Aileenie Gurat 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
Liesl Alice Gatcheco 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!
Sue Bae Thanks so much for the info! I appreciate you taking the time.
Looking to do some micro-blading on the eyebrows. I've heard it's amazing. Anyone done it yet and do you love your person(s)?

Liz Pearce I haven't personally tried it, but @nattpatt recommends Beauty Blading by Sam!
Natalie Steck It is AMAZING Arry and I strongly recommend Sam but she is in Shoreline. Happy to tell you all about my experience but it was important for me to find someone with good experience and that would ensure I was completely numb before proceeding. Sam is so professional and I only need a touch up once a yeah or so. Highly worth it.
