Are you interested in microblading, but are looking for a subtler look? Ombre brows achieve this look by using a powder look on the brows. This look mimics the appearance of makeup on the eyebrow and uses an ombre pattern by starting with a darker color at the tail and a lighter color at the front of the brow. Different clients make different candidates for microblading versus powder, and our professional aestheticians will be certain to help you choose the best option for your desired outcome and eyebrow fullness.
Microblading vs Powder
Typically, when permanent eyebrow makeup is discussed, it is described as microblading. However, microblading is only one type of permanent makeup option for eyebrows. Microblading is a technique that uses a handheld pen-like device to apply small strokes that gives the appearance and texture of hair. Powder eyebrows are applied in an ombre pattern when hair fullness is already present. Powder eyebrows give the appearance that you are wearing powder makeup on your eyebrows. This technique is for clients that have fuller eyebrows, and they don’t want to have to apply makeup daily
Just like microblading, powder is a permanent makeup look that gives the appearance of fuller eyebrows. The look and shape of powder brows differ slightly than microblading. Microblading eyebrows is typically for eyebrows that are sparser and need the appearance of hair strokes to give them a fuller look. Powder eyebrows give the look of wearing makeup on the eyebrows. They are the preferred choice of clients that have fuller eyebrows and just need definition. The powder eyebrows use an ombre technique to give the guise that the client is wearing eyebrow makeup. These clients have full eyebrows and don’t need the additional texture that microblading adds.
The technique is similar to microblading in the sense that semi-permanent makeup is used to create the appearance of a fuller eyebrow. However, the makeup is applied to mimic the appearance of powder, almost like the client is wearing powder on their brow. When a client comes in with fuller brows, we recommend powder brows because of the technique to apply the makeup. With microblading, small strokes are made to mimic the appearance and texture of hair. When a client does not have fine or sparse hair, we recommend powder because it gives the look of wearing makeup without having to apply makeup every day.
