Microblading is a great way to get perfect, natural looking eyebrows. But what about afterwards? When can you put makeup on your eyebrows after microblading?
Here’s everything you need to know about post-microblading makeup care!
The healing process
After you have had your eyebrowsmicrobladed, it is important to allow them to heal properly. This means that you should not put any makeup on your eyebrows for at least 7 days. Once the 7 days have passed, you can start to put makeup on your eyebrows, but be sure to use a light hand and avoid any products that are waterproof or oil-based.
The right time to start
It’s important to give your eyebrows time to heal before you start putting makeup on them. You should wait at least a week after your microblading procedure before you start to use makeup on your eyebrows. This will give your skin time to recover and will help ensure that your makeup does not interfere with the healing process.
The products to use
There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing the right products for your eyebrows after microblading. The main goal is to protect the area and allow it to heal properly.
For the first week or so, you’ll want to use a gentle cleanser and avoid anything too harsh or abrasive. You should also avoid makeup, creams, lotions, and serums during this time.
Once the area has healed, you can start using makeup again. However, it’s important to be careful and use products that are non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and won’t irritate the skin. Look for products that are specifically designed for sensitive skin or post-procedure care.
The tools to use
There are many factors to consider when choosing the right eyebrow makeup for you. The first is the type of microblading procedure you Had. If you had a light to medium microblading, eith semi-permanent or permanent makeup, then a powder or pencil may be your best bet. If you had a heavier hand, then a pomade would give you the most coverage.
The second factor is your skin type. If you have oily skin, then a powder or pencil will help to absorb any excess oil and keep your brows in place. If you have dry skin, then a pomade will help to add moisture and keep your brows from flaking.
The third factor is the time of day. If you are getting ready for work or an event, then you will want to use a product that will last all day long. A pomade is usually the best option for this. If you are just going out for the night, then a powder or pencil can work well too.
The fourth factor is your personal preference. Some people prefer the look of powder while others prefer the look of pencils. It really just comes down to what YOU like best!
The techniques to use
There are a few different techniques that can be used when microblading eyebrows, and the technique that is used will often dictate when you can put makeup on after the procedure.
The first technique is called feathering, and this involves using very fine strokes to create the illusion of natural hairs. This technique is often used for people who have very sparse eyebrows.
The second technique is called shading, and this involves using slightly larger strokes to create a more solid brow. This technique is often used for people who have more hair, but it can also be used for people who want a more bold brow look.
The third technique is called powdering, and this involves using a small amount of pigment to create a soft, powdery effect. This technique is often used for people who have very dry skin or who want a softer look.
After your microblading appointment, your technician will likely recommend that you avoid putting makeup on your brows for at least 24 hours. This will give your skin time to heal and the pigment time to set. After 24 hours, you can gently apply some coconut oil or aloe vera gel to help soothe your skin. You should avoid using any products that contain fragrance or alcohol, as these can irritate your skin. After 48 hours, you can start to lightly apply makeup to your eyebrows if you wish.
The precautions to take
There are a few things you need to do to take care of your eyebrows after microblading. First, you need to keep them clean. You should wash them three times a day with a mild soap and water. Be sure to pat them dry afterwards.
Second, you need to apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly or an antibiotic ointment on your eyebrows. This will help keep them moist and help prevent infection.
Third, you need to avoid sun exposure. You should not go out in the sun or use tanning beds for at least two weeks after microblading. If you must go out in the sun, you should wear sunscreen on your eyebrows with an SPF of 30 or higher.
Fourth, you need to avoid any type of strenuous activity that will cause sweating. This includes working out, saunas, and hot yoga classes.
Fifth, you need to avoid touching or picking at your eyebrows. This can cause the ink to fade and the area to become infected.
You will need to take these precautions for at least two weeks after microblading. After that, you can slowly start to introduce makeup into your routine again.
It is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your microblading technician to ensure proper healing and to avoid any complications.
For the first 24 hours after the procedure, it is important to keep the area clean and dry. You should avoid touching or rubbing the area, as this could cause irritation. You should also avoid putting makeup on or around the eyebrows.
After the initial 24 hours, you can gently clean the area with a mild soap and water. You can also apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to the eyebrows to help keep them moist. Avoiding direct water exposure and using a mild soap will help keep the area clean and prevent any infection.
It is important to avoid direct sunlight or tanning for at least two weeks after microblading. This will help prevent any hyperpigmentation or other complications. If you must be in direct sunlight, be sure to use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
You should see your microblading technician for a follow-up appointment 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure. At this appointment, they will assess your healing progress and make any necessary touch-ups.
Most people will see the full results of their microblading after 4-6 weeks. Initially, your eyebrows will appear darker and bolder, but as your skin heals and the scabs flake off, the color will soften and become more natural looking.
