Q. What is Microblading?
A. Microblading is a form of semi-Permanent Makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments placed in the skin.
Microblading is to improve and create eyebrow definition, to cover gaps of lost hair, to extend the eyebrows, or may be used as a full reconstruction if the brows have little to no hair. Each Microblading stroke is applied individually, allowing me to control the shape, colour and density of the completed eyebrows for the most natural look.
Microblading is also known as a variety of names such as:
- Feather Brows
- 3D Brows
Q. What is Powder Brow?
A. Powder brow technique mimics the 'effect' you achieve when you use a brow powder or pencil, It does not have the hair strokes. A combination of Microblading and Powder Brow is always ideal for clients with little to no hairs. Also known as Shading.
