Ombré Powder Brows (also known as Powder Brows) is a technique achieved by depositing pigment onto the top layers of the skin also known as the Epidermis and Dermis. This process is completed by manually shading in a Pre-Drawn shape of the client’s desired brows with an electric tool and needle in a back and forth motion. This creates a powdered look that resembles makeup, which in most cases heals to a natural finish.
What is the difference between Micro-Blading and Ombré Powder Brows?
Microblading and Ombré Powder are two forms of eyebrow micropigmentation and should be executed by a licensed permanent makeup technician. Both procedures are ideal for those who have sparse, uneven, light-coloured brows, and/or little to no brows eyebrows whether caused by over-plucking, medical conditions or just having less brow hair.
Microblading is a technique achieved by creating precise 'hair-like' incisions that deposit dye in the top layer of the brow, which allows for the appearance of hair on the brows. Microblading is meant to create a very soft and wispy looking full and shaped brow.
