Helen Mirren tried Microblading and says it made a “huge difference”

Helen Mirren has been acting since 1967 when she began her career with the Royal Shakespeare Company, and basically she’s never looked back. Mirren has graced countless stages and screens since, playing numerous roles, and looking fantastic while doing it. Now 72-years-old, she recently revealed one of the tricks she happens to have up her sleeve and it might surprise you. Mirren recently tried the Microblading trend that has been sweeping the beauty world and apparently she absolutely loves it.

She recently posted a make-up free selfie on Instagram ahead of the Oscars after claiming she’s suffered with ‘insecurities all her life’. She revealed her secret to her age-defying looks, admitting she has got her eyebrows tattooed on. She said she was ‘fed up’ with her sparse brows (something many of us can relate to) and confessed she has noticed a ‘huge difference’ in her confidence since undergoing the Microblading procedure. “I was fed up with my brows barely being there and when one of my girlfriends got it done, I thought that they looked great. They’re very lightly and delicately done — but it means that when I get up in the morning and I have no makeup on, at least I have eyebrows. It’s made a huge difference.”

Looking at recent pictures of Mirren at events, you can see she looks confident and her brows certainly do look gorgeous. But it’s a recent photo without makeup she posted to her own Instagram that allows us to really see the difference the Microblading procedure has made. Without a stitch of makeup, she still has her brows.
