Microblading All You Need To Know

Microblading all you need to know Fashions Finest

I generally do not like the idea of drastically changing my appearance but when a friend, Kim, trainee Microblading therapist, asked me to be a model for her Microblading course I hesitantly said yes. Now I was not really blessed with full eyebrows but loved them none the less!! So although hesitant I agreed to undergo the treatment and was wonderfully surprised at the outcome. Because I now have eyebrows that you can actually see. So I am happy!!
Microblading Before and After Fashions Finest result

So what is Microblading

Microblading is different from the permanent cosmetic tattoo as it is a more natural option that offers a semi-permanent result. The treatment is done with a pen-like tool that has 11 tiny needles at the tip. The therapist starts the treatment by numbing the skin with a numbing cream and once the skin is numbed she applies cosmetic -grade eyebrow dye. She then sweeps the dye pigment with her tool onto the brow area. The whole procedure takes two hours and you do feel a slight sting but no real pain.

After the first treatment you will have to wait for a period of four weeks to apply the second treatment. Now this is just to fill in any gaps and add a second color for dimension.

After the first treatment, your brows appear very dark and it is a bit of a shock if you are not used to full dark brows. After a couple of days of treating it with Vaseline, there is a slight scabbing but once healed you will see a definite but subtle difference.

Microblading Fashions Finest result

So yes, I am defiantly loving my new eyebrows!!

The Final Look Microblading result

The nice part is, that it is a low maintenance treatment, as after healing you can treat them just as your normal brows and no special care is needed other than staying out of the sun as this will fade the brows quicker. Therapist do recommend that you go back after one or two years for a touch up treatment.

Espadrilles and cool sunglasses are the epitome of summer so pairing the two together just make sense. The espadrilles will give you that casual and relaxed vibe while the color popping Adidas Original sunglasses will give you that cool street vibe look. Pick your pair for a rocking summer!!!
Espadrilles and Adidas Color frames

Color Pop Frames from Adidas Original

What is better than a pair of denim shorts and a pair of espadrilles. With so many different styles and designs of denim shorts you can really wear a pair every day. I love the one featured from Glamorous especially the 1940’s fringe detail, giving it a touch of vintage glam, pair it with a bodysuit, black espadrilles and your purple color popping Adidas Original sunglasses for a sexy street glam look.

Adidas origanal and espadrilles

The mini skirt, BOOM, show off your legs!! Keep it playful with a character cropped t-shirt, patched denim mini skirt and lace up espadrilles, paired with the purple tinted sunglasses for a subtle hint of sexy cool.

Classis chic, striped t-shirt and white mini, for a relaxed monochrome look paired with Blue sunnies for a hint of color.

Espadrilles and a mini dress, a girly combo, playful and flirty. I picked the white laser cut-out, off the shoulder dress because the white will show off your glowing tan and the wedge espadrille will give you the extra height, showing off your legs. The color framed sunglasses from the Color Pop Adidas Original collection will just make it all pop.

Sweet and Sizzling Summer Interiors

Sweet and sizzzling summer interiors
I love décor and interior design and feel that every fashionista needs a beautiful space where she can be herself and express her sense of style. My favorite room to spruce up and make my own is my bedroom because it is the one place where we spend so much time. So why not make this our own fashionable haven. Fill it with the things you love and style it a decorative theme.

At the moment I am loving soft pops of color that inspires white floating fluffy clouds and whimsical day dreams.

If you are a décor styling newbie, the easiest way to start, is with throw pillows, but do not overdo it!! You should use just the right amount of pillows to make your bed look sumptuous and inviting, so the right number should be between 2 and 6 pillows depending on the size of your bed.

Cool Monochrome

COOL

So we are officially in Spring, although the weather is not playing along yet, we can look forward to, hopefully, some great summer weather. But while we are not there yet, and we are still working on our bikini bodies. HELLO!! Monochrome, one of the best styling tricks to hide those pesky areas that you are conscious of, while at the same time adding inches and making you appear leaner.

Monochrome is often associated with black or white but there are more colors that you can wear to create that elegant monochrome look. Here are my favorite 6 colors, that if chosen in the shade that compliments your skin tone, will carry you through spring and summer for all those cool monochrome looks.

Denim Blue

Cool and tranquil the perfect color for your casual street style, as we all have a denim jacket, cutoff shorts, jeans, chambray shirts, and button-down skirts in our closets.

Green is great if you want to refresh your look. And as we are seeing a lot of the khaki safari trend this season. Pulling of the green monochrome look will be a breeze. Choose hues of green like khaki, hunter green, olive green, and forest green for a fresh chic look.

White, the classic summer color. Although most women find it challenging to wear because the all-white shade, as it is not very flaw flattering. The trick is to pick the right fabric and to make sure that it fits your silhouette and that the design flatters your shape. So if you do have a muffin top, pair a structured vest with a dress, as the lapels of outerwear slims down your shape and defines your waist.

Grey, not always a summer color, but definitely a good choice for a slimming monochromatic look. Just be sure that the color does not drown you out so add splashes of complementing color like blueberry blue, red or fuchsia.

Nude, depending on your skin tone this is a very flattering monochrome look. But like grey it can drown you, so make sure that you pick a shade that is in contrast with your skin tone.
