Powder brows look a lot like your natual brows, and are sometimes called ombre brows. With powder brows the tail at the end of hte brow is a lot darker, while it slowly and gradually fades and looks a lot more natural at the beginning.
This permanent makeup technique offers a more subtle, soft pencil or powdered shadow effect closely mimicking the appearance of conventional brow makeup. This technique lasts longer than microblading with up to 5 years before requiring a second touch-up appointment. Microblading and the powder brow technique can be combined for a look that is softly textured, defined and on-trend!
What's the process?
Unlike the microblading technique where individual strokes are manually created, this technique uses an electric pen with tiny needles that punture the skin to deposit colour and gradually build on th depth of colour, and shape of the brow.
