Aesthetically, we wanted to give you this spring glow-up article with beauty products and treatments we have never tried before but always wanted to. As you know, we only work with brands and products and businesses that we trust, so rest assured we have done a ton of research on everything we are about to cover today.
Effortless Arches by Leanne Venter
We have to admit, we’ve never really been into eyebrows the way other people are but are so glad we went outside of our “beauty comfort zone” with this one. Yes, this goes against our ”expertise” in the beauty industry, which is exactly why it was so important for us to embrace our brows and make an appointment with the best out there, Leanne Venter, the Founder of Effortless Arches. Lindsey has always been back-and-forth about getting a Microblading treatment done to her brows because of the “downtime,” but it has been a game-changer. This is why we’re so glad to have found Effortless Arches in Palm Beach Gardens. It was a little bit of a drive for Lindsey from Delray Beach, but absolutely worth it. Leanne is a complete professional artist in her craft. Despite Lindsey‘s extremely sensitive skin, Leeanne was able to work around it and provide her with a service that is less invasive than Microblading called Ombre Powder. What is the difference between Ombre Powder Brows vs. Microblading? Ombre Powdered Brows is the newest shading technique in permanent makeup. This method creates pixelated dots to imitate powder-filled brows with no harsh front or outline, which is huge, especially if it’s your first time. This shadowing technique isn’t as invasive, it lasts longer and can go from light to dark over time. Microblading is creating 3D hair-like strokes using microfine needles and has a little bit more downtime, so we have been told. Essentially, it is the same thing but the needles and tattooing don’t go as far into your skin.
This is definitely a procedure that Lindsey was a little bit scared to get done because she wanted a natural look and things can go terribly wrong if you go to the wrong place. Thank goodness we found Leanne at Effortless Arches because she would never let something like that happen. And no, it did not hurt a bit. If you are unfamiliar with permanent makeup, Microblading, or Ombre Powder Brows it can be a little jarring and scary at first. This is Lindsey’s before and after photo right after the treatment was completed.
This is a treatment where you really need to “embrace the process” because, after two weeks of letting the process happen naturally, we’re happy to report that Lindsey is in LOVE with her brows.
“I’m at the point where I can’t remember or believe I ever lived without them. Getting ready and doing my makeup is now so much easier, now that I don’t have to worry about my brows.” - Lindsey
We have to admit that, we don’t know if that would be the case if we went anywhere else than Effortless Arches. Leanne was very detailed and meticulous about how she filled in the brows. Lindsey followed all of the protocols to ensure that her brows would not be compromised or messed up by something she did in the aftercare process. Admittingly, the “healing process” is probably the worst part and it’s not even that bad, you just have to be conscious of it, but it’s all so worth it! After practicing the aftercare closely for two weeks, Lindsey couldn’t be happier with the way her brows turned out.
