I have already mentioned my pretty minimal (not in a chic way, in a very apathetic, lazy way) beauty regimen, and the lack of effort I put into my skin, but if there is one thing I try to keep up, it's my brows. Luck for me, I have the best brow girl and she has kept my eyebrows looking great for years. With the risk of sounding vein, I have to admit that I feel so beautiful when I leave her appointments and am so grateful for her tinting and shaping capabilities. You can imagine my excitement when Monica told me she has added the art of Microfeathering to her list of services, because now her stunning work will last longer than the typical tint-time. I booked a session immediately and was surprised how easy the process was. Monica is such a joy and her delicate touch made the actual Microblading painless. The healing process is a little gnarly so I would not recommend anyone get their brows done a week before a special occasion but after two weeks, they looks stunning. I would definitely recommend this procedure to anyone looking to have fuller brows without having to use daily makeup. After Monica Microbladed my brows, I started getting compliments on them, which has never happened. My eyes are a little offended because they have always been the show-stoppers, but I am going to let my brows have the spotlight for a little. As a mother, saving seconds makes a difference in my day and the less makeup I need the better. My brows look perfect when I wake up and don't come off in the pool or when Wally throws food at me! Additionally, all of the dyes are organic vegetable dyes so they aren't toxic for the body. My beautiful friend Kim was kind enough to let me hang around while she got her brows done so I photographed the process to share. Check out her before and after below and also read a little about Monica's Microfeathering process. Monica is so kind to offer my readers 20% discount if you mention Wallace & James so click the link below to book your session.
L.A. native, Monica Varela has been practicing esthetics & brow artistry for over 14 years. She is an accomplished Certified Skincare Dermalogica Expert and Certified Microblading Brow Artist from Microblading LA Academy (founded and instructed by 2016 Microblading Champion Lindsey Ta).
With Monica's extensive knowledge in skincare and makeup artistry, her passion for brow design comes naturally. She always encourages her clients to grow their brows to their fullest potential while keeping them structured, bold, and natural for either the art of Microblading or Eyebrow Wax Design.
Microblading is the art of creating semi-permanent individual hair strokes through a manual tattoo procedure, also known as feathered embroidery, micro-feathering or 3D brows.
Brow application will take between 2-3 hours. Anesthetic creams are used before and during the procedure, keeping discomfort to a minimum. Prior to numbing, brows are framed to the desired shape & pigments are discussed and agreed upon.
All pigments are Cosmetic grade Organic Lakes and Inorganic iron oxides which are naturally occurring minerals known to be safe, gentle and non-toxic on the surface of the skin. As well as a high grade Vegan/Kosher Glycerin by Li Pigments.
