Are you looking for a way to get your dream eyebrows without going to a professional? Does the price of microblading and the required maintenance leave you looking for other alternatives? If so, then you’ve come to the right place! In this blog post, we will explore other options that can give you the look of microblading in a few simple steps.
You’ll enjoy the same look of microblading without any of the commitment to permanent makeup or clinic visits. And, you won’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home. Sounds too good to be true? It’s not! We’re going to share two different ways you can unlock safe, effortless brow beauty: using our Brow Trio: Stencil Kit and our Brow Swipe Pen.
So, whether you're a beginner or more experienced, read on for all the information you need. We’ll begin with a basic overview of microblading. Then, we’ll explain why microblading is just one of the many options to reach your brow goals.
What Is Microblading?
Microblading is a form of eyebrow tattooing. It involves using a fine blade to deposit pigment into the skin - creating the appearance of natural, hair-like strokes. Microblading is semi-permanent, meaning that the pigment will fade over time. On average, it can last from 12 to 24 months before needing a touch-up.
Normally, people would get their microblading done at professional salons. But these appointments can be expensive and a time commitment. Is there a way to get the look of microblading at home yourself?
Is DIY Microblading Safe?
You may have come here hoping to learn how to microblade eyebrows at home. After all, maybe you know someone who has done this. But is DIY microblading safe? We’re here to tell you that it is not - and you should avoid DIY microblading altogether. Why? Think about it like this: would you buy a tattoo gun and give yourself a tattoo? We hope not!
Microblading is essentially the same thing - you’re using a tiny, pigmented needle to apply color under your skin. Doing this on your own - without the proper training or experience - is a terrible idea. That’s why we advise you to never microblade eyebrows at home. Instead, consider some of the alternatives that we’ll mention.
What Tools Can You Use To Get A Microbladed Look?
Now you know that you can’t learn how to microblade eyebrows at home safely. So, are you stuck living with the eyebrows you don’t love? Not necessarily. There are still ways to achieve a microbladed look - safely, from home!
The best part about these alternatives is that they’re temporary. So, you can experiment with other fun styles and different brow looks. And at the end of the day, you clean off your brows with a makeup wipe and can start fresh the next day. Our founder created our top alternative to microblading, it’s a transformational kit inspired by her experience in the microblading and permanent makeup industry.
The Brow Trio: Stencil Kit
Our most popular eyebrow stencil kit, The Brow Trio Eyebrow Stencil Kit, guides you to create your dream shape with a stencil, brow pomade, and signature application sponge brush. It comes with 12 stencil options allowing you to find your desired brow shape, size, and arch. Each stencil was created with thousands of brows in mind from experience in the permanent makeup industry. Once you find your stencil, you simply hold the stencil to your brow and tap the pomade using our signature brush. In less than a minute you can reveal a beautifully pigmented and defined brow shape similar to the look of microblading but without the commitment of the procedure.

We also created other products that can complement the look created by our stencil kit and mimic the look of microbladed brows.
The Brow Swipe Pen
Following the Brow Trio: Stencil Kit, The Brow Swipe Pen (our take on a microblade brow pen) can create realistic hair strokes similar to the microblading process. This versatile tool can create ultrafine strokes that mimic natural hair, resulting in a completely realistic look. But, if you want to create a fluffier look, you can pair this pen with a brow gel or lifting wax.
Plus, the Brow Swipe pen is easy to use and gives you complete control over your eyebrow shape and thickness. If you're looking for the perfect way to achieve natural-looking eyebrows, look no further!
Another alternative to DIY microblading that still produces stunning brows in seconds? Eyebrow lamination. This is a semi-permanent treatment that sets and directs your eyebrow hairs in the specific direction you want them to create a fuller complete brow. Think of it as styling your brows - sort of like a perm, in that the results won’t just go away when you get your brows wet. You can expect results to last as long as 8 weeks with this treatment. We created a product you can use at home to lift your brows like brow lamination but without the need for a semi-permanent procedure.
Our brow lifting wax is an amazing tool that helps you get full, fluffy, laminated brows that stay put all day long. It dries clear and flake-free for a natural look and is incredibly easy to use and apply. You just brush your brows up using the application wand, follow with the comb to separate individual eyebrow hairs and let the results speak for themselves. You can pair this tool with the Brow Swipe Pen we discussed above for extra texture and dimension if necessary.
