Eyebrow Shading, Microblading & Microshading
Microblading, also known as micro stroking, is a form of semi-permanent makeup, where simulated hairs are finely etched into and around your natural brows, to augment or reshape your eyebrows.
Mcroblading addes mall deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigmentss, to radically change the way your brows look or fully reconstruct lost or sparse brows. The pigment is selected to match the natural or desired colour of your eyebrows.
Microbladed brows last for 12 to 18 months or even longer, depending on your skin.
Microblading is for you, if:
You don’t like doing your brows every morning.
You want a ful, natural brow look that lasts a longtime.
Microshading is a combo of microblading and brow shading. Microbladed hair-like strokes together with lots of small, pinpoint dots create a well-defined brow arch plus the look of semi-permanent brow powder.
The ink used for the dots is the same as for microblading. However, the shading is done with more needles at a time, using a contraption that looks like a mini tattoo gun. The gun applies the ink consistently and evenly throughout the brow.
Microshading is for you, if:
Your natural brows are sparse or light in colour.
Your skin tends to be oily.
Brow shading is a gentler treatment than microblading and gives what’s known as an ombré, shadow or powder brow effect. The pigment is applied in the form of tiny dots that resemble powder fill.
If microblading is likened to painting individual brow hairs onto your skin, shading would be more like an Impressionist went to work on your brows. Instead of hair strokes, repetitive dots of pigment are applied, resulting in a soft, powdered effect.
Shading is for you, if:
You want your brows to look more “done” (i.e. thick and filled in).
You have sensitive skin.
