What is Ombré / Microblading?
Microblading and Ombre both are “tattooing” the brows with pigment to create the ideal look and shape.
Ombré brows are a semi-permanent makeup service that creates the illusion of full, bold, and pigmented brows. The service is less invasive than most permanent or semi-permanent cosmetic procedures, and it can last for years with the proper care.
Ombré Brows, also known as Powdered Brows, are a semi-permanent eyebrow styling technique that creates a soft shaded brow pencil look…It gives great definition and depth to the eyebrows.
Powdered brows offer a blurred and pigmented finish ideal for oily skin because the oil glands won’t disrupt the healing process. However, Ombré brows are suitable for all skin types, and they even suit those with a dark complexion beautifully.
Ombré brows will usually result in a gradual fade of color. For example, the brow’s tail will be the most pigmented area, and then toward the front, it will have a gradient effect, the color will be lighter, and it will look like a natural brow.
Microblading is another semi-permanent makeup service that will help you achieve flawless and defined brows similar to ombre brows. However, microblading involves contrasting techniques to that of ombre brows, and they aren’t as long-lasting.
Microblading also goes by other names like feathering or micro-stroking. The goal of microblading is to create a complete and precisely defined brow that mimics the look of natural hair fibers. So instead of spread out pigment, the brow artist is drawing hair-like strokes in the natural shape of your eyebrows.
In addition, microblading won’t work as well on oily skin, which is why ombre brows are the more versatile service catering to everyone. Normal skin types or those who have a lighter hair color can get the most benefits from microblading.
However, don’t shy away from microblading just yet. A consultation with your chosen clinic, doctor, or brow specialist will help determine if you are the correct candidate for microblading. Let’s dive into what you should expect from this brow service.
