I’m all about minimal makeup and glowing skin, so I was so excited to go visit my friend Olivia at LiveSkin Nashville to get my yearly microblading touch up (you can read all about my first microblading experience here) and to get a “glowing skin” facial from Olivia’s business partner Liv (yes, they are both named Olivia). I truly believe that getting your eyebrows microbladed is one of the easiest things you can do to change the way your face looks. I love thick and full brows, so I like to keep my microbladed brows touched up on a yearly basis to keep them looking fresh and filled in. Once your brows have been mircobladed it is suggested that you go back at least once a year to have them touched up. The microblading color is semi-permanent, so you will likely need to maintain this yearly touch-up routine so they don’t fade.
I love that Olivia and Liv are in practice together because you can go get a refreshing “glow facial” and then get your eyebrows done all in one sitting! I started out with a hydrating facial that included 2 masks, extractions, and dermaplaning by Liv. I then walked one room over and let Olivia work her magic on my eyebrows. If you’re an eyebrow microblading newbie, it’s basically a small blade that she dips in dye and makes hair like strokes to fill in your eyebrows. Think of it like a tattoo on your eyebrows, but not the old traditional way where it would literally look like a stripe across your brows. This is a much more strategic approach where your brows are measured and filled in with natural looking and fine hair imitation strokes of dye. Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure whereby hair-like incision strokes are created along the eyebrow to attempt to either enhance, reshape or create a natural looking appearance on the brows.
As you can see in these pictures, my brows look really dark, and this is totally normal. Your brows will be dark for about 2 weeks and then the color will fade a bit and you will be left with perfect, filled-in brows!
I highly recommend Olivia Weir if you live in Nashville, Tennessee or within driving distance and you want some fierce looking eyebrows. If you are uncertain about pulling the trigger on microblading, I encourage you to take a look at Olivia’s instagram account where she displays thousands of before and after pictures.
Thanks so much to Olivia and Liv for partnering with me on this post so I could bring you all the 411 on the microblading and glow facial experience. If you are interested in booking services with them, contact them VIA Instagram.
