Back in the 90s, pencil-thin, skinny brows were apparently a thing. That was a dark time, considering how your brows make a world of difference in framing your face and accentuating your features. It’s all about thicker and fuller brows now! Microblading is not just the hottest beauty trend currently but also a heaven-sent solution for us victims of over-plucked, thin eyebrows. If you are looking to give your brows a long-term fix, here’s everything you need to know about this semi-permanent eyebrow treatment.
What Is Eyebrow Microblading?
