I Got A Tattoo, Kind Of! | Microblading | Beauty Blogger

Caroline Kalentzos, CEO of POSH PR®, talks beauty, brows and microblading with a visit to Luxe Lashes in Richmond, Va!

History repeats itself. Today’s Cara Delavigne was the Ancient Times’ Cleopatra, when bold brows were believed to have supernatural powers! To the Ancient Greeks, a unibrow was a sign of desired purity and intelligence. While we haven’t quite seen a return of the unibrow, bold brows have returned and I’m SO glad they have, enough to make my own semi-permanent with a visit to Luxe Lashes in Richmond, Va. and a microblading session! 

“I have always equated eyebrows with power—
with women who know what they want and get it.” 
Lena Dunham for VOGUE Magazine

I gave in to the most recent beauty trend, dolls: microblading. I am about as blond as you get. This means that every morning, I had to create my brows with my beloved brow pencil, all to have them disappear by the end of the day. As you may know, Marilyn Monroe is one of POSH PR’s mood pictures. To me, everything about her look shines posh and glamour, especially her bold browns! Naturally, my brows needed to reflect this, too!

One of our clients, Arielle Davis, is the founder and owner of Luxe Lashes, a beauty studio right here in Richmond, Va. I have worked with her so closely through her branding process. I’ve seen her beautiful work with airbrush makeup, lashes, and microblading and finally decided to try a service for myself! 

Prior to my appointment, I read that the pain threshold varies. Some compare microblading to a tickle, and others flat out describe it as a tattoo on your brow bone. I always thought I had a high pain threshold, but was surprised by how sensitive I was to the process! However, the fact that I was in Arielle’s expert hands, helped me keep my calm. She’s one of those beauty artists who knows what she is doing and that confidence is SO comforting! All that to say, it is totally worth it. 

Brows are the statement piece of a woman’s visage. You can have barely there brows, fine, blonde brows, have lost your brows due to alopecia, or just need a little shape and fill. Microblading can help any woman finally achieve her #browgoals!
