What Exactly Is
Microblading is a cutting edge method of permanent makeup designed to enhance the eyebrows. It involves a certified and licensed microblading artist using a hand held tool with a very fine needle grouping to draw individual hairs, creating the illusion of full and perfectly shaped beautiful eyebrows.
Glitter Me Beauty Bar is the brainchild of Samantha. As a single mother of three girls, she always wanted to receive glam services; however, often times she was unable to afford those services. Samantha created Glitter Me Beauty Bar with the idea that she’d keep her prices affordable to accommodate everyone. The concept was focused on one main specialty service: semi-permanent eyelash extensions along with a handful of complimentary add-ons, such as lash and brow tinting and volume lashes. Then came permanent makeup with microblading, the pioneer of this new specialty service concept in the beauty industry.

Microblading is one of the hottest trends in beauty today and it is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows, especially for those with little to no hair. Unlike traditional machine applied permanent makeup, microblading is applied manually by using a tool to tattoo fine eyebrow hairs into your own eyebrows, creating the appearance of the full, perfectly shaped eyebrows you’ve always wanted! When performed correctly by a qualified microblading artist, it is difficult to tell the difference between your real hairs and the microbladed strokes.
Lip blush is a semi-permanent makeup treatment that enhances the natural color of the lips. Lip blushing technique gives a soft lip tint effect, rather than a full-on, opaque lipstick look. The most prominent difference between lip blushing and the traditional lip tattoo, is the fact that there is no distinctive contouring lip blushing. The desired result is a soft tint, a blurred effect that looks luminous and with no sharp contour.
Eyelash extensions are very popular today because bold lashes dramatically enhance a woman’s appearance! However not all eyelash extensions are the same, and neither are all lash extension artists. When performed correctly by a qualified lash artist, it should be hard to notice the difference between natural lashes and lash extensions.
Eyeliner is a Permanent Cosmetic makeup also called Tattooed Eyeliner. Micro-droplets of colored pigments are inserted between your lashes and under the skin with a manual tool. This process may be done over several passes, or it may even be done over several appointments to monitor the color absorption. A numbing cream will be applied to reduce discomfort. The tattoo eyeliner color and shape is customized to your preference. The suggestion is to keep permanent eyeliner as simple and natural as possible.
Powder Brows are created with a micropigmentation machine and it is recommended for customers that want a soft or darker ombre makeup look. This procedure is also recommended for customers that are not good candidates for microblading due to either previous permanent makeup, large pores or oily skin.

Microblading is a specialized hand-controlled method that implants pigment into the superficial layers of the skin in order to resemble eyebrow hair. It’s ideal for someone who has experienced some hair loss and wants to achieve very natural looking eyebrows.
Those with oily skin may want to consider a Combination or Ombre brow to ensure the longevity.
Before your appointment please refrain from tinting your brows, waxing, threading, tweezing, or grooming the brow in any way. This allows us to see where the natural hair grows to ensure we are creating a brow shape truly based on your bone structure and hair growth pattern.
The day of your appointment don’t drink coffee, alcohol or energizing drinks. Don’t take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 24 hours before your appointment. Don’t take omega3 (fish oil) 1 week before your appointment. Don’t tan or have intense sun exposure 3 days before treatment.
It’s best to avoid the following:
- Hot and sweaty exercise for approximately 3-4 days.
- Direct sun exposure or tanning beds for 4 weeks.
- Long hot showers or spas for the first 10 days.
- Skin and makeup products including sunscreen for 30 days.
- Never rub, pick or scratch the treated area, never!!
Microblading uses a hand tool to create realistic looking hair strokes in the brow. Ombre/Powder brows help clients achieve more of a soft makeup filled in brow look and work great for clients with oily skin, mature skin, that wear a face full of makeup regularly such as full coverage foundation, fill in their brows with makeup daily, or that want a more over all very defined and specific looking brow.
Microblading is less invasive and is designed to generally last 1-2 years, depending upon your age, skin type, skin health, how well you follow your aftercare instructions, your usual skincare routine and environmental factors, particularly sun exposure. As a result, it will be necessary to include “maintenance” microblading procedures as part of your yearly routine.
If you don’t get the 6 week touch up, your brows will stay the way they turned out once the skin has healed – which could be slightly uneven and patchy which could result in them fading within 6-12 months.
