Overview: Ombré is permanent powdered brows technique done by machine for clients who prefer fuller result than hair strokes but still very soft. It’s a technique which looks like daily makeup done with eyebrow pencil or pomade. The tails of the brow are darker and fade into a light beginning to the brow, giving a perfect Ombré makeup affect. The effects will be waterproof, smudge-proof and completely natural
Pros: Ombré powder brows use a more traditional tattooing method, with longer lasting results. Additionally it works with most skin types including oily or combination skin unlike Microblading.
Microblading is a treatment done with a manual hand tool that looks like a blade consisting of 10-12 tiny needles. The artist then makes small incisions in your skin and fills them with brow pigment. The result is hair-like strokes that look very realistic, as your own brows. Your brows look very natural, dense and bushy.
Ombré Microshading is done with a machine which applies tiny, pin-like dots in a gradient pattern, creating a semi-permanent powdered effect. That is why they are also called powder brows. Unlike microblading, where you can see hair-like strokes, with microshading your brows will have a more powdery effect which mimics every day makeup.
