3D Brows Microblading Technique
I finally did it! Are your brows sparse? unshapely? non-existent? This is the procedure for you!!
It took me a long time researching before I felt comfortable having someone take a needle close to my eye and deposit permanent makeup to my eyebrows. I have seen typical, “traditional” eyebrow tattoos and I was never happy with the way they looked. This new method is very natural looking. It’s subtle enough for no one to know you had anything done but defined enough to build your confidence by not having to worry that your eyebrows will wash off or rub off during the day!
After several months of researching different practioners that offered this procedure I settled on a very artistist woman whose work speaks for itself. Here is her page on Instagram: https://instagram.com/neeziiebabiie/?hl=en Her name is Neeziie and she is absolutely amazing.
I highly recommend this procedure but I also want to provide a very honest review about my personal experience. I gave the entire procedure a 5 out of 10 stars. To understand exactly why I rated it this way you can watch my video HERE.
Here I am before having anything done to my brows. As you see my brows are light (they are actually dyed here so you can imagine how light they are without anything on them whatsoever). They’re sparse and the shape is not defined.

Here is my before photo below.
The Procedure costs around $500 and can last up to one year. I paid only $400 because it was her first time coming out to LA. She is based in Las Vegas but comes out to different cities because the demand is so high.
The procedure IS painful so please understand that you need to be committed to doing this because the pain is something you will definitely feel. They do provide you with a numbing cream that they apply to your brows about 15-20 mins before the procedure but in my opinion it does nothing for the pain. I used mind over matter and just focused on the results and the reasons I was doing it. For me, having a 3 year old running around makes it difficult to focus on myself at times so ANYTHING that can cut down on the amount I spend doing my makeup is something I will invest in.
I’m about 80% satisfied with my results. My 5 out of 10 goes to the 1. The Pain 2. My personal outcome and 3. The cost. I personally had a lot of fading right away. It may be my skin type but now that they are healed they are lighter than I thought they would be. The pain was not the best for me but it was also worth the outcome so it’s all a balancing act. I think for my personal results $500 was too high of a price even with the $100 discount. The ink either did not stick into my skin well or the cuts were too shallow for the ink to penetrate enough. I have seen results from girls that went the same day I did and it’s amazing and out of this world how good they look!!! I think my particular case is not the norm.
They looked the best just minutes after the procedure was done, and had they stayed this way I would have been 100% satisfied.
Over the next two weeks things changed a lot. In some cases I think people would want it to fade out and blend in more but in my case I love the stark look of really dark brows on my light skin.The pigment faded from a dark brown to a reddish and then to the final color which looks like a taupe/gray.
I loved how dark they were here. They looked amazing for at least 5 days and then the scabbing began.
The scabs were in the shape of the small brow hairs she creatively placed throughout my brow. They were really sore and started to itch pretty badly. The instructions say not to put anything on them so I didn’t and just tried to take my mind off the itching.
Around the 7 day mark the scabs started to slowly fall off when I washed my face and just throughout the day. I did not pick them or touch them because if you do the ink could come out and not deposit into your skin.
I started noticing as the scabs fell off the color looked gray underneath.
I really wanted them to be black or at least a very dark brown but after thinking about this I now realize it’s better that they are this subtle gray color, they blend really well with the natural hair on my brows and although I do need to fill them in a bit with brow powder, the baseline the procedure provided for me is worth every penny.
This was about an hour after the procedure. Sorry for my long stray hair haah it’s probably the longest one I have 🙂
Here they are one week post procedure. As you can tell behind my hairs are tiny scabs. They are in the shape of hairs as well and as they heal you will see how the hairs and the ink will blend together more.
Here they are 9 days post procedure. You can REALLY see the scabs in this picture. They are even falling off so you can see on the ends they are hanging there about to fall off.
Lastly, here they are 10 days post procedure. Almost fully healed. You can really see the gray color now. I have to admit it’s great having a tail on my brows now because I had almost nothing prior to this experience. I love it.
There you have it!!
Here’s a picture of me moving the hairs back so you can see the ink, when they are fully healed. Although subtle I noticed that there is a very big difference when I look at myself in the mirror now compared to before. Sorry for how blurry these are. It was hard to get that close to the camera.
Here’s a picture of me looking straight ahead after they are healed.
For reference here they are before. I know the Flash was not on in the before picture but you can still notice that they are now more defined, especially on the tails.
