Eyebrows are an important facial feature that can enhance your natural beauty or detract from it. Unfortunately, eyebrows require a lot of care and attention to look their best. There are some excellent solutions for this problem, though: microblading and powder ombre brows.
Microblading is a procedure that deposits pigment into your skin by making small cuts with a hand tool. These cuts look like tiny, precise hairs, so done right, microblading can look very natural. This procedure is best for someone who has thin eyebrows, wants a subtle look, and does not have oily skin.
Powder ombre brows are applied with something akin to a traditional tattoo gun. This procedure provides a fuller, more defined, and more dramatic look. It works well for most skin types, including oily skin, and is great for someone who normally fills in their eyebrows. Powder ombre brows typically require fewer touch-ups than the microblading procedure.
Some people choose combo brows. This simply means that a combination of microblading and powder ombre procedures are used. Both tiny hair strokes and a powder effect result in a much more natural-looking eyebrow. It can be an excellent option for almost everyone.
Results do vary based on lifestyle, skin type, health, preferences, etc., but a single ombré powder brows session, using high-quality pigments, can last on average 2-3 years.
Ombre Powder Brows is a form of tattooing, but it is different from the traditional method. It is a more modern method because it is surface work meaning it is on the epidermis layer of the skin.
On average, microblading lasts up to one year and ombre brows can last for up to three years, although this can vary based skin type, skincare routine, etc. Those with oily skin may find that microblading fades much quicker on them, so may want to consider the ombre powder brow route.
