Today I timed myself as I was getting ready for work just as a little experiment to see what steps of my daily routine I could reduce or take out completely. First thing I did as I rolled out of bed was wash my face and brush my teeth. These were two steps that obviously couldn’t replace as hygiene is a big representation of your quality of self care. Next step was to do my makeup. Now this is where a lot of my morning minutes are used up because I like to make sure that I look neat and want to look presentable for work. My makeup routine however does include a lot of steps that I could potentially take out to save some minutes every day. First I apply sunscreen all over my face as Houston is a hot and sunny city. It is important to protect your skin from the sun to prevent aging and wrinkles. Next I apply my primer which covers my pores and prepares my face for makeup application. I apply my foundation lightly all over my face and blend it out as there is nothing more painful than unblended or mismatched foundation. Next I work on applying my brows for at least 15 minutes. This here is the step that takes the longest and most effort as I was not blessed with full defined brows. My brow hairs are sparse and light almost looking like I don’t have eyebrows.
There is just no way I can put on makeup and not do my brows or I would look so silly. Now the rest is quick and all that is left is to apply eyeliner and chapstick. Once I’ve completed my makeup, I get dressed with the outfit that I chose out the night before and I am out the door. Now looking back at the steps I’ve listed, I can see very clearly where I could be saving more time and effort. My eyebrows take too much time and too much effort (and money) every single day. I thought I would research ways I could efficiently get my brows done every single day while saving more time. I looked up online and found a procedure called microblading. Microblading is basically a permanent tattoo that resembles the look of real eyebrow hairs in the shape that the brows are supposed to take on your face in position with your other facial features. It is important to realize that eyebrows have a very specific shape they are supposed to take on your face and though it is nice to arch them and thicken them, there is a limit to the shape you can create if you want it to look natural on your face. The technician usually uses rulers and lines to create perfect symmetrical brows for your face shape. Once they have done that, they numb the brow area and proceed to tattooing hair-like lines in between your real brows or create them to look as natural as possible! The results as seen online are amazing! If done correctly, you can look like you have full beautiful brows every day without having to do anything! This will successfully save me time, money and effort and I’m so excited to set an appointment and get my brows done ASAP!
