Hey there everyone!
Long time no “see!”
Things have been pretty crazy for the past few months but I am back! I wanted to share with ya’ll something I had done this past week that really changed my life in a very positive way: microblading.
I know, that sounds SUPER dramatic, but once you hear my story maybe you’ll see where I am coming from.
Ever since I was in second grade, I have had really bad anxiety. I know, everyone seems to have anxiety these days or just be extremely stressed, but my disorder actually causes me to lose my hair. Eyebrows, lashes, the whole nine yards. As the hairs came and went, so did my self-esteem. I can’t remember the last time I even had a full set of brows.
At my young age I had NO idea what I was doing makeup-wise and ended up just piling it on to try and hide my secret. At the time, I had no clue that that only made it worse and more noticeable. Makeup had become my safety blanket.
As I got older and tutorials became more abundant, I got better and had (and still have) a love for makeup. Yet I was still reminded daily of my imperfection that had caused me so much pain.
I have learned over time and relationships that EVERYONE has something they struggle with or are insecure about and that helped me gain my confidence back.
I was so blessed to meet Deana from Lumiere Brow Bar (Charlotte, NC.) I told her a little bit of my story and she was so kind to me about my situation. She made me feel incredibly comfortable. She asked me specifically what it was that I wanted, in terms of color, thickness and shape.
Her kind spirit and gentle touch made for such an amazing appointment. And y’all, IT DIDN’T HURT! She put numbing cream on and I was good to go! I go back in about 4 weeks for my touch up and I will give an update of how things are looking and have healed.
Not only did she give me brows back, she gave me back a certain level of confidence and joy that I thought was always going to be beyond my reach.
So while my anxiety is STILL my battle, it no longer has my brows. Thank you Deana.
PS. How cute is her studio!? She moves next week and I can’t wait to see her new place either!
