A new eyebrow treatment is making waves! Brow Shading also called “Powder Brows“. It’s geared toward those with oily or sensitive skin or brows that are already full and just need a bit of shaping.
It’s called “shading” rather than “blading” because the process is more so like creating a shadow or gradient appearance with teeny-tiny dots of pigment instead of fine hairs like microblading—almost like you used a brow powder (the look has also been referred to as “powder brows”). But don’t worry. The color eventually fades instead of looking like a block of color on the brow area.
Brow Shading lasts just as long as microblading. It’s also worth noting that some people may benefit from a combination of both Brow Shading and microblading, especially if their brows are on the thinner side and they need that powder effect to fill out the shape.
So, “Powder Brows” are a very soft, “filled-in” makeup look. Best for oily skin and covering old permanent makeup tattoo.
