What are "Powder Brows"
While there are many different names for this method of cosmetic tattooing (ie: ombre brows, micro shading, etc) Powder is a method of machine tattooing techniques that can deliver a soft, powder-like shadowing effect to the brow, and can be customized to look as soft, or defined as the client prefers. It heals very similarly to a pencil or "eyeshadow powder" makeup look in the brow.
Microblading vs. Powder
Microblading is best suited for clients with sparse brows that wish for a low-maintenance look.
Process: Microblading is a form of cosmetic tattooing in which the artist manually inserts pigment into the upper layer o the skin with a blade to give the impression of hairlike strokes and definition.
Results: a soft, natural eyebrow that lasts about 6-18 months.
Powder is best suited for clients with problematic or oily skin OR those clients that desire a completely customizable brow look.
Process: this process is more gentle on the skin, and is a much more versatile option. The effect is a completely personalized brow look- the density level is up to the clients choosing.
Result: Longer-lasting, customizable brows. Powder brows typically lasts between 1-3 years.
