Some Final Thoughts and Helpful Tips
It feels a bit weird.
It feels like it takes forever.
Do the research.
The healing journey is a long one.
It’s worth it!
Eyebrow talkers .
Let’s talk about “eyebrow talkers” .
We are know one ! - and those eyebrows are so expressive .
It adds to DRAMA, and usually we are very amused .
Until it comes to Microblading ....
Here’s the deal-
✔️The brows fly up and down her forehead when she tells a story.
✔️Surprised responses are exaggerated .
✔️When she is angry or sad the brows over express this too.
✔️This client make a mouth O and raises her eyebrows even applying mascara.
✔️One side of the forehead muscles become over developed with time , lifting one eyebrow higher than the other naturally .
✔️At “ resting bitch face” , the brows still are not balanced.
At Microblading time, the new brow is mapped out at “ resting bitch face”.
It is then the treatment continues.
So, this client heads out to the world with her newly Microbladed eyebrows , only to continue as she always did - eyebrow talk !
Charlotte Tilburry’s model here shows how this is a common phenomenon. She also depicts correction with makeup .
My advice to Eyebrow Talkers- think carefully if you want Microblading. Daily brow products are less invasive .
If you think Microblading is the route you still want- Step right along !

Margaret, salon owner . Her brow transformation through Microblading .
Margaret , the beautiful glamorous owner of Beauty Within in Castlemartyr was fed up of filling in her brows daily, and embarked on her Microblading journey last Oct .
Here's her journey up to TODAY.
Here she is " bare faced" , ( can you imagine how she looks with makeup and hair done!), and the end result is a Fabby full brow, the same height, and filled in with pigment to create a fuller looking brow.
Photo 1- is Margaret with no pencil , or makeup on ( still looks fab, don't you agree!) . The brows were at different heights and thickness, and one started later than the other . This is no fault of hers- it was just as it is.
Photo 2 - with digital measurements this was the suggested brow ( drawn in pencil) that we both agreed on.
Photo 3 and 4 is the end result after Step 1,2 and 3 over the 3 month period.
All steps are 4 weeks apart .
Margaret found the soreness during the procedure a 3/10, we chatted throughout, the downtime was no big inconvenience.
Ask Margaret about her experience, she would love to impart her knowledge .
Castlemartyr clinic is once a month, but after today, we have increased the clinics to one every 2 weeks now.
Book through me ;-
Below is a little gallery of Carolines journey with Microblading, right through to the end result.
Day one Caroline arrived with her brow pencil on . The shape made her look sad which is no reflection on this bubbly woman.
We discussed and chatted, measured and chatted, and suggested and chatted, and chatted and chatted ...and eventually we decided between us on the new HAPPY brow.
We started with a conservative brown to suit Irish skin, and added more depth of colour at each visit to build up to the final treatment, resulting in brows that suited Carolines skin, head hair, lashes etc.
On the last visit ( Step 3), she mentioned she was still applying brow pencil by day, which was the cue to add more colour so this frees up this busy ladies mornings.
Caroline is a joy to be around .
Her story is not one for beauty, but as support to anyone going through cancer. Those little hairs over our eyes make a difference - a huge one. Let's spread the message .
Pippa took to ' the blade ' today in Dublin .
(Not with me!)
This practitioner trained in the same training school as me- EUROPEAN INSTITUTE OF PERMANENT MAKEUP , now the Phi Academy and is based in Dublin .
I am based in Cork !
No drive, no tolls, parking, time out .
Double-tap to edit.
Pippa went out that night - see below .
No down time, just a wee bit tight and tender and dark.
Below is Pippas update on how her brows are doing one day post Eyebrow Microblading .
Pippa was quickly followed by Jennifer Rock, AKA The Skin Nerd, Marissa Carter , and a whole host of other high profile ladies . Other ladies who have had the Microblading technique done is Joanne Larby- The makeup fairy, Lorraine Keane, Lisa Fitzpatrick, Tigman- Melissa Mills .
Below is her healing journey for 14 days after Step 1.
